This application is directed to a low cost IC solution that provides Super CMOS microelectronics macros. Hereinafter, SCMOS refers to Super CMOS and Schottky CMOS. SCMOS device solutions includes a niche circuit element, such as complementary low threshold Schottky barrier diode pairs (SBD) made by selected metal barrier contacts (Co, Ti, Ni or other metal atoms or compounds) to P- and N-Si beds of the CMOS transistors. A DTL like new circuit topology and designed wide contents of broad product libraries, which used the integrated SBD and transistors (BJT, CMOS, and Flash versions) as basic components. The macros are composed of diodes that are selectively attached to the diffusion bed of the transistors, configuring them to form (i) generic logic gates, (ii) functional blocks of microprocessors and microcontrollers such as but not limited to data paths, multipliers, muliplier-accumaltors, (ii) memory cells and control circuits of various types (SRAMs with single or multiple read/write port(s), binary and ternary CAMs), (iii) multiplexers, crossbar switches, switch matrices in network processors, graphics processors and other processors to implement a variety of communication protocols and algorithms of data processing engines for (iv) Analytics, (v) block-chain and encryption-based security engines (vi) Artificial Neural Networks with specific circuits to emulate or to implement a self-learning data processor similar to or derived from the neurons and synapses of human or animal brains, (vii) analog circuits and functional blocks from simple to the complicated including but not limited to power conversion, control and management either based on charge pumps or inductors, sensor signal amplifiers and conditioners, interface drivers, wireline data transceivers, oscillators and clock synthesizers with phase and/or delay locked loops, temperature monitors and controllers; all the above are built from discrete components to all grades of VLSI chips. Solar photovoltaic electricity conversion, bio-lab-on-a-chip, hyperspectral imaging (capture/sensing and processing), wireless communication with various transceiver and/or transponder circuits for ranges of frequency that extend beyond a few 100 MHz, up to multi-THz, ambient energy harvesting either mechanical vibrations or antenna-based electromagnetic are newly extended or nacent fields of the SCMOS IC applications.


A surgical suturing device has a guide tip defining cuff receiving and tissue bite areas. The guide tip has at least one needle guide configured to guide at least one needle through the cuff receiving area and the tissue bite area. Another surgical suturing device has a guide tip defining cuff receiving and tissue bite areas. The guide tip has at least one pair of needle guides configured to guide both the needles of at least one pair of needles through the cuff receiving area and the tissue bite area. The guide tip also has at least one pair of ferrule receiving apertures. The cuff receiving area and the tissue bite area are oriented to avoid cross-over of a suture passed by the at least one pair of needles through tissue in the tissue bite area and a replacement anatomical device sewing cuff in the cuff receiving area.


A light fixture includes an array of light-emitting elements for generating light from the light fixture, and the array of light-emitting elements includes a defined sub-array of light-emitting elements. An alternate array of light-emitting elements is coupled in parallel with the defined sub-array of alternate light-emitting elements of the light emitter. Each of the sub-array and the alternate array are coupled with a respective switch element. A control circuit is coupled with the switch elements and configured for selectively switching power between the sub-array and the alternate array for modulating the operation of the sub-array and alternate array of light-emitting elements to generate modulated communication signals.

A system includes a fixture, such as a light fixture, for installation at a location The fixture is configured to be programmed to operate, through a controller, according to a control program. A communication interface is used for communication with the controller. An optical receiver located with the fixture is configured for receiving an optical signal. The controller evaluates first command data, such as provisioning commands received by the fixture to be programmed. The controller upon determines receipt of the first command data and will monitor inputs to the optical receiver to detect an optical selection signal for selecting the fixture to receive second command data or commissioning commands. Upon detecting an optical selection signal the fixture processes command data, such as the commissioning commands received through the communication interface. The controller, upon determining that the first command data for the at least one fixture has not been received, further configured for ignoring inputs to the optical receiver so the fixture cannot be selected and programmed with commissioning commands.
