*** Google Assigned Patent for Multi-resolution Texture Aggregation ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 22 -- Google, Mountain View, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,379,037) developed by four co-inventors for a multi-resolution texture aggregation. The co-inventors are Emil Constantin Praun, Fremont, Calif., Paul Steven Strauss, Sunnyvale, Calif., Costa Touma, Santa Clara, Calif., and Tushar Udeshi, Broomfield, Colo.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems and methods for aggregation of textures at multiple resolution levels are described herein. An embodiment includes a preprocessing system that aggregates textures associated with objects of interest at multiple resolution levels. Individual textures may have a "pyramid" of resolution levels, and aggregated textures may be combined into a "tree" or a "forest". Additionally, a texture forest may also be organized spatially and in resolution using the nodes of a quadtree, based on the 3D coordinates of the geometric primitives using each texture. A client identifies a resolution level for each object of interest in an image frame, groups objects based on resolution levels. The client may then test one texture coordinate per object at the beginning of a texture tree, recursively towards each child node of the tree, accumulating texture replacement transforms as a texture matrix. The client may then draw all the textures with the appropriate transform." The patent application was filed on April 7, 2009 (12/419,704). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,379,037&OS=8,379,037&RS=8,379,037 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** Atmel Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 22 -- Atmel, San Jose, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,378,414) developed by Gayle W. Miller, Colorado Springs, Colo., Volker Dudek, Brackenheim, Germany, and Michael Graf, Leutenbach, Germany, for a low leakage FINFETs.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "By aligning the primary flat of a wafer with a (100) plane rather than a (110) plane, devices can be formed with primary currents flowing along the (100) plane. In this case, the device will intersect the (111) plane at approximately 54.7 degrees. This intersect angle significantly reduces stress propagation/relief along the (111) direction and consequently reduces defects as well as leakage and parasitic currents. The leakage current reduction is a direct consequence of the change in the dislocation length required to short the source-drain junction. By using this technique the leakage current is reduced by up to two orders of magnitude for an N-channel CMOS device." The patent application was filed on June 30, 2011 (13/174,398). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,378,414&OS=8,378,414&RS=8,378,414 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Vescent Photonics Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 22 -- Vescent Photonics, Denver, has been assigned a patent (8,380,025) developed by Michael H. Anderson, Lyons, Colo., Scott D. Rommel, Lakewood, Colo., and Scott R. Davis, Denver, for a "liquid crystal waveguide having refractive shapes for dynamically controlling light." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Liquid crystal waveguides for dynamically controlling the refraction of light. Generally, liquid crystal materials may be disposed within a waveguide in a cladding proximate or adjacent to a core layer of the waveguide. In one example, portions of the liquid crystal material can be induced to form refractive or lens shapes in the cladding that interact with a portion (e.g. evanescent) of light in the waveguide so as to permit electronic control of the refraction/bending, focusing, or defocusing of light as it travels through the waveguide. In one example, a waveguide may be formed using one or more patterned or shaped electrodes that induce formation of such refractive or lens shapes of liquid crystal material, or alternatively, an alignment layer may have one or more regions that define such refractive or lens shapes to induce formation of refractive or lens shapes of the liquid crystal material. In another example, such refractive or lens shapes of liquid crystal material may be formed by patterning or shaping a cladding to define a region or cavity to contain liquid crystal material in which the liquid crystal materials may interact with the evanescent light." The patent application was filed on July 6, 2007 (11/774,525). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,80,025.PN.&OS=PN/83,80,025&RS=PN/83,80,025 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Verizon New Jersey Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 22 -- Verizon New Jersey, Newark, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,380,210) developed by Michael Freeman, Colorado Springs, Colo., for a "method and system of providing on-network communication services." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An approach is provided for using on-network communication services for wireless calls. Dialed digits associated with a call originated from a wireless network are received. It is then determined whether the dialed digits include either a steering digit or a pre-determined prefix. The call is routed according to an abbreviated dialing plan if the steering digit or the pre-determined prefix is present." The patent application was filed on Dec. 28, 2006 (11/617,453). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,380,210.PN.&OS=PN/8,380,210&RS=PN/8,380,210 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Honeywell International Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 22 -- Honeywell International, Morristown, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,378,853) developed by Brian James Smith, Peyton, Colo., Billy Durham, Phoenix, and Jeff Vanderzweep, Peoria, Ariz., for an "intelligent crew alerting system and method for aircraft and other vehicle applications." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method of managing alerts associated with the operation of an aircraft is provided. The method maintains an alert model database that correlates root causes to alerts associated with onboard aircraft subsystems. During operation of the aircraft, the method receives first alert data indicative of at least one alert of a first onboard aircraft subsystem, and traverses the alert model database to determine a root cause of the first alert data. The root cause (or some indicia thereof) can then be displayed on a display element." The patent application was filed on Nov. 18, 2009 (12/621,154). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,78,853.PN.&OS=PN/83,78,853&RS=PN/83,78,853 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Glass Technology Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 22 -- Glass Technology, Durango, Colo., has been assigned a patent (8,378,315) developed by Kerry A. Wanstrath, Durango, Colo., and Rory R. Most, Durango, Colo., for a "windshield repair device and method for repairing windshield." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A windshield repair device includes a bridge, an injector attached to the bridge and at least one UV, e.g., light emitting diode (LED), light source attached to the bridge or integrated into bridge or the injector to provide UV light within or around the injector. The UV, e.g., LED, light source can also be attached to an existing windshield repair device having a bridge and an injector attached to the bridge, so as to retrofit an existing windshield repair device to provide UV light within or around the injector. A method for curing resin provided in a crack in a windshield can be carried out by exposing the resin to UV light from at least one UV LED light source."
