The CCLIF Process describes the essential characteristics of an organization's e-security processes that must exist to ensure compliance with e-security basic principles and best practices.The assessment method supports continuous improvement and can be customized through the application of the process questions according to an organization's size, mission, and functions.

Clip applier cartridge with internal ratchet

A clip applier for applying a surgical clip in a patient comprising a disposable cartridge and a reusable actuating mechanism. The cartridge includes an elongate tube having a proximal end and a distal end, a pair of opposing jaw members extending outwardly from the distal end of the elongate tube, and a one-way ratchet mechanism providing a full actuating stroke. The actuating mechanism is coupled to the proximal end of the elongate tube to move the jaw members between an open position and a closed position. The ratchet mechanism may be formed from injection molded plastic. The cartridge further comprises a push member for advancing the clip into the jaw members, a biasing spring for maintaining the push member against the clip, and a drive coupling operatively connected to a sliding ratchet pawl for engaging with mating teeth formed on an inner surface of the elongate tube, wherein the ratchet pawl includes a cantilever arm that engages with the mating teeth, and wherein the drive coupling provides a central connection of the ratchet pawl allowing pivoting and improved seating of the mating teeth. A method of applying a surgical clip to an object in a patient using the clip applier of the invention includes the steps of positioning the clip applier within the patient such that the jaw members are adjacent to the object to be clipped, closing the jaw members and the clip over the object, and removing the clip applier from the patient. The method may further comprise the steps of orienting the clip applier such that the jaw members pass over the object, manipulating the jaw members to move the object to a compressed state within the jaw members, advancing the clip over the object to maintain the object in the compressed state, and retracting a feeder to allow the next clip to be fed into the jaw members.

Display line drivers and method for signal propagation delay compensation

Methods and apparatus for compensating the effects of display signal propagation delay in a display panel are disclosed. The apparatus comprises circuitry in addition to conventional display driver circuitry for delaying display line timing signals by an amount approximating the delay found in corresponding display lines. By delaying display line timing signals, for example in a column driver, by an time approximately equal the delay experienced in a corresponding row enable signal line, capacitors associated with the display pixels charge more fully resulting in a more vivid display image. Methods for compensating the effects of display signal propagation delay involve generating a plurality of delayed display timing signals and activating display lines in response to those delayed timing signals.

Compact multi-port cam cell implemented in 3D vertical integration

A multi-ported CAM cell in which the negative effects of increased travel distance have been substantially reduced is provided. The multi-ported CAM cell is achieved in the present invention by utilizing three-dimensional integration in which multiple active circuit layers are vertically stack and vertically aligned interconnects are employed to connect a device from one of the stacked layers to another device in another stack layer. By vertically stacking multiple active circuit layers with vertically aligned interconnects, each compare port of the multi-port CAM can be implemented on a separate layer above or below the primary data storage cell. This allows the multi-port CAM structure to be implemented within the same area footprint as a standard Random Access Memory (RAM) cell, minimizing data access and match compare delays. Each compare match line and data bit line has the length associated with a simple two-dimensional Static Random Access Memory (SRAM) cell array.

Method and apparatus for user identification using pulsating light source

Pulsating light is used to penetrate a user's finger placed an input surface (which can be a fiber optic surface) of a video camera to avoid the effects of bloodflow from a normal human pulse on the quality of the image which would otherwise change the contrast of the image. The use of pulsating light of shorter durations than a typical human pulse provides an accurate image of a portion of a finger for identification. A retractable cover blocks the fiber optic input surface during a non-working mode, and allows access for identification during a working mode. A light source having a plurality of light emitting diodes provides light that diaphans a portion of the finger. Several successive frames of image signals allow for biometric detection and verification of a human pulse to ensure the finger is not a counterfeit.

Controlling a voltage controlled osillator in a bang-bang phase locked loop

The frequency changes in a bang-bang PLL that are generated using a digital phase detector's up / down signal are initially set to produce a faster pull-in rate and then reduced to produce a slower pull-in rate. The faster pull-in involves relatively large frequency changes and the slower pull-in rate involves smaller frequency changes. The changes in frequency of a bang-bang PLL can be implemented using a step size controller that includes timing control logic and step size logic. The function of the timing control logic is to control the timing of step size changes. The function of the step size logic is to set the step size of the frequency changes that are made by the VCO in response to the pd_up / down signal that is delivered directly to the VCO from the digital phase detector.
