  • Inventor(s):
    Behnam Sedighi, Michael Niemier, Xiaobo Sharon Hu, Joseph J. Nahas
    Patent Number:
    US 9362919 B1
    Description:

    A Boolean gate includes at least one symmetric tunneling field-effect transistor (SymFET) for low-power information processing. SymFETs are ideal for applications that demand low power and have moderate speed requirements, and demonstrate better dynamic energy efficiency than CMOS circuits. Negative differential resistance (NDR) behavior of SymFETs leads to hysteresis in inverters and buffers, and can be used to build simple Schmitt-triggers. Further, pseudo-SymFET loads may be utilized in ci…

  • Inventor(s):
    Behnam Sedighi, Michael Niemier, Xiaobo Sharon Hu, Indranil Palit
    Patent Number:
    US 9712146 B2
    Description:

    Various processor architectures for mixed signal computation exploit the unique characteristics of advanced CMOS technologies, such as fin-based, multi-gate field effect transistors, and/or emerging technologies such as tunnel field effect transistors (TFETs). The example processors disclosed herein are cellular neural network (CNN)-inspired and eliminate the need for voltage controlled current sources (VCCSs), which have previously been utilized to realize feedback and feed-forward templates…

  • Inventor(s):
    Behnam Sedighi, Xiaobo Sharon Hu, Michael Niemier, Joseph J. Nahas
    Patent Number:
    US 9825132 B2
    Description:

    An electrical circuit is disclosed that comprises plurality of tunneling field-effect transistors (TFETs) arranged in a diffusion network matrix having a plurality of nodes wherein, for each of the TFETs that is not on an end of the matrix, a drain of the TFET is electrically coupled with the source of at least one of the other TFETs at a node of the matrix and a source of the TFET is electrically coupled with the drain of at least one of the other TFETs at another node of the matrix. The ele…

  • Inventor(s):
    Christopher R. Sweet, James C. Sweet
    Patent Number:
    US 9972120 B2
    Description:

    A method of mapping a two-dimensional image to a three-dimensional surface includes capturing data for a two-dimensional image and a three-dimensional structure. A process determines coincident points between the 2D image and the 3D structure and maps points on the 2D image to the 3D structure by assigning relative two-coordinate points from the two dimensional image to relative three-coordinate points of the three-dimensional structure. The mapping creates a 3D surface and texturing and remo…

  • Inventor(s):
    John DeWolfe MacKenzie, Jiazhuo Wang, Danny Z. Chen, Rageshree Ramachandran
    Patent Number:
    US 10121245 B2
    Description:

    Systems and methods are provided for identifying markers for inflammation in a tissue image. The tissue image is captured as an image of a histology slide. Subcellular structures in the tissue image are segmented via a first automated process to identify at least one variety of immune cells within the image. Glands and vilii are identified within the tissue image via a second automated process. Neutrophils are identified within the tissue image via a third automated process. An output represe…
