High Voltage Tolerant Differential Input Receiver

View page
US Patent:
6686778, Feb 3, 2004
Filed:
Aug 22, 2001
Appl. No.:
09/935372
Inventors:
Luke S. Theogarajan - Cambridge MA
Assignee:
Intel Corporation - Santa Clara CA
International Classification:
H03K 300
US Classification:
327108, 327 66
Abstract:
A computer system includes at least one high-voltage device and at least one low-voltage device. The low-voltage device has at least one differential input receiver, which reduces the risk of gate oxide stress by ensuring the voltage level on the low-voltage device gate(s) is at or below a predetermined value. The low-voltage device may be a memory controller and the high-voltage device may be a memory.

US Patent:
6960944, Nov 1, 2005
Filed:
Aug 25, 2003
Appl. No.:
10/648591
Inventors:
Luke S. Theogarajan - Cambridge MA,
Assignee:
Intel Corporation - Santa Clara CA
International Classification:
H03K003/00
US Classification:
327108, 327 66
Abstract:

Minimally Invasive Retinal Prosthesis

View page
US Patent:
6976998, Dec 20, 2005
Filed:
Jan 17, 2003
Appl. No.:
10/346701
Inventors:
Joseph F. Rizzo - Boston MA,
Luke Theogarajan - Somerville MA,
Assignee:
Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Cambridge MA
Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary - Boston MA
International Classification:
A61F002/16
US Classification:
623 663, 607 54
Abstract:
An ocular device that can more safely and effectively perform all functions needed of a retinal prosthesis with electronic components that are placed outside the wall of an eye, are powered wirelessly provided by an external power source, and which provide a patient with a view determined by natural motion of the eye and triggered by natural incident light converging at the retina. In one aspect, the invention is an externally powered, light-activated, sub-retinal prosthesis in which natural light entering the eye conveys visual details to the sub-retinal prosthesis, while wireless radiofrequency transmission provides the power needed to stimulate the retina, which would be insufficient if it were obtained from the intensity of incoming light alone.

Neural Stimulation Device Employing Renewable Chemical Stimulation

View page
US Patent:
20060009805, Jan 12, 2006
Filed:
Apr 26, 2005
Appl. No.:
11/114976
Inventors:
Ralph Jensen - Norwood MA,
Carmen Scholz - Madison AL,
Luke Theogarajan - Somerville MA,
International Classification:
A61N 1/00
US Classification:
607002000
Abstract:
A variety of neural stimulation devices are disclosed. The devices comprise an uptake component comprising means for selectively transporting a stimulating species into the device; a release component comprising means for releasing the stimulating species; and means for producing a concentration gradient of a second species. The concentration gradient of the second species provides energy to transport the stimulating species into the device. The stimulating species may be an ion, e.g., a potassium ion, or a neurotransmitter. In a preferred embodiment of the invention the stimulating species is a potassium ion. In a second preferred embodiment the stimulating species is dopamine. In certain embodiments of the invention countertransport across an uptake component comprising a synthetic ABA polymer membrane is achieved using a carboxylic acid crown ether. The gradient of the second species may be provided by means of a chemical reaction that takes place inside the device. The substrate for the chemical reaction is transported into the device from the external environment. In certain embodiments the neural stimulation device comprises light-sensitive elements that comprise light-sensitive proton pumps. The proton pumps translocate protons into the device in response to light, thereby triggering release of the stimulating species. In certain embodiments the neural stimulation device comprises electronic components that receive a signal and send an activating input to the device, thereby triggering release of the stimulating species.
