Cabinet d'avocats: Aucun avocat
Numéro d'application, date, vitesse: 15793955 le 25/10/2017 (application de 748 jours à émettre)

Abstrait: L'invention concerne un système et un dispositif pour enfiler une ligne de pêche à travers des guides montés sur une canne à pêche, ainsi qu'un procédé d'utilisation du système ou du dispositif. Un arbre est soutenu entre des portes jumelées. L'arbre a une extrémité arrière pour attacher à une ligne de pêche. Un ensemble porteur est configuré pour maintenir les portes jumelées et pour permettre aux guides montés de passer entre les portes jumelées ouvertes tout en étant enfilés avec la ligne de pêche par l'arbre, car l'arbre est retenu de manière fixe entre les autres portes jumelées. Un canal d'entonnoir d'un module de capuchon d'extrémité est fixé à l'ensemble de support près de l'extrémité avant de l'arbre. Lors du passage de l'ensemble de support sur chacun des guides montés, le canal d'entonnoir canalise chacun des guides montés pour encercler l'extrémité avant de la tige, enfilant ainsi les guides montés avec une ligne de pêche.

Un utilisateur peut également fixer des objets en utilisant l'article de couplage en combinaison avec une ligne de traction en boucle ouverte en enroulant la ligne de traction autour d'une première section d'extrémité, à l'intérieur de la découpe et en la fixant avec un nœud. Avec la ligne de traction en boucle ouverte restante, l'utilisateur encerclerait un ou plusieurs objets, puis enroulerait la ligne de traction en boucle ouverte autour d'une deuxième section d'extrémité, dans la découpe et la sécuriserait avec un nœud. L'article de couplage peut être construit en plastique, en métal ou en un autre matériau rigide pour répondre aux besoins de l'application. Les dimensions de l'article de couplage peuvent être de taille variable en fonction de la force de compression souhaitée nécessaire sur les objets, et de la taille et de la résistance de la ligne de traction.

Application No., Date, Speed: 15068222 on 03/11/2016 (1341 days app to issue)

Abstract: A surface steerable system coupled to a drilling rig receives BHA information from a bottom hole assembly (BHA) located in a borehole. The BHA information corresponds to a first location of the BHA with respect to a target drilling path and geological formation drift information. The surface steerable system calculates a toolface vector to create a convergence path from the first location of the BHA to the target drilling path that accounts for geological formation drift defined by the geological formation drift information such that the BHA will converge with the target drilling path by drilling in accordance with the toolface vector. The surface steerable system causes at least one control parameter to be modified in order to alter a drilling direction of the BHA based on the calculated toolface vector and transmits the at least one control parameter to the drilling rig to target the BHA in accordance with the calculated toolface vector.

Abstract: A system includes memory banks that store data and a data path coupled to the memory banks that transfers the data. The system also includes a latch that gates the data path based on a clock signal in the system. The system further includes interface circuitry coupled to the data path that sends an instruction to the memory banks to transmit the data on the data path in response to receiving a first rising edge of the clock signal. The interface circuitry also outputs gated data in response to receiving a second rising edge of the clock signal. The latch gates the data path to store the gated data in response to receiving a falling edge of the clock signal.

Abstract: This disclosure provides techniques for reducing leakage current in a non-volatile memory that does not include a local interconnect. In one example, a low-voltage pulse can be applied to all of the word-lines in all of the blocks of the non-volatile memory. The low-voltage pulse can be applied during a period in which the row decoder is typically idle in order to reduce the total amount of time required to program the non-volatile memory. After the conclusion low-voltage pulse, a global control line voltage can be applied at about the same level as the low-voltage pulse to keep the word-lines floating when the pulse is no longer applied.

Abstract: Disclosed herein is a secure messaging engagement hub for structuring of unstructured electronic messages. The secure messaging engagement hub has a natural language processor that structures an unstructured electronic message. The natural language processor structures the unstructured electronic message by using a lexical parser to parse free text within the unstructured electronic message. The natural language processor also may tokenize the parsed free text into tokens representing components of the parsed free text. Message component n-grams are generated based on the tokens representing the components of the parsed free text. The tokens are coded with various metadata tags based on an analysis of the tokens. The metadata tags indicate message components of the tokens. And a structured electronic message corresponding to the unstructured electronic message is generated, the structured electronic message comprising the tokens and the metadata tags.

Law Firm: No Counsel
Application No., Date, Speed: 15588083 on 05/05/2017 (921 days app to issue)

Abstract: Key fob and vehicle control unit identifiers (IDs) are used for entity authentication or trust transfer to achieve a secured initial pairing. The key fob is capable of transmitting only (not receiving) and is paired with a control unit in a vehicle or with any other control device. Use of the key fob and control unit IDs prevents unauthorized pairing and access to the operation key (OpKey) that is later used for communications between the devices. Elliptical curve cryptography (ECC) is used for strong security and efficient implementation. In the pairing process, device IDs are used for entity authentication and public key cryptography is used for easy key management. Symmetric encryption is used for fast normal operation and to accommodate key fob addition or revocation after key fob loss.
