ABSTRACT

Various methods and devices that involve tuning filters are disclosed. A disclosed method for tuning a filter comprises trimming a center frequency of the filter. The method also comprises trimming an input signal magnitude of the filter. The method also comprises measuring a performance metric of the filter after trimming the center frequency of the filter and the input signal magnitude of the filter. The method also comprises repeating the trimming steps and the measuring step until the filter is tuned for a first physical test condition. A disclosed device that includes a filter also includes first and second trimming circuits that trim the center frequency and input signal magnitude of the filter. A disclosed system includes a motor to transfer a transmitting device from a first physical test condition to a second physical test condition relative to a proximity coupling device with a filter.

April 11, 2017 Clover Network, Inc. issued new U.S. patent [9,619,804]

ABSTRACT

Various methods and devices that involve biometrically secured networked devices with enhanced privacy protection are disclosed. For example, a computer-implemented method for onboarding a first biometrically secured device to a network is disclosed. The method comprises generating an asymmetric key pair, transmitting the public key to a second device, and receiving an encrypted master encryption key from the second device. The master key is encrypted with the public key. The method also comprises decrypting the encrypted master encryption key using the private key and receiving an encrypted set of biometric data. The encrypted set of biometric data is a set of biometric data that is encrypted with the master encryption key. The method also comprises storing the set of biometric data on a memory of the first device. The set of biometric data uniquely identifies at least two users that are registered to use both the first and second devices.

ABSTRACT

A computer-implemented method for pairing a point of sale printer with a client device, using two-way identification, is disclosed. The method comprises receiving, using the point of sale printer and a wireless communication protocol, a request to pair the point of sale printer. The method also comprises deriving, using the point of sale printer, the client device, and a device pairing protocol, a shared secret at the client device and the point of sale printer. The method also comprises printing, using the point of sale printer and upon deriving the shared secret, client device association information on a printout. The method also comprises receiving, using the client device and the printout, the client device association information. The method also comprises associating the point of sale printer and the client device using the client device association information as received using the client device.

December 6, 2016 Clover Network, Inc. issued new U.S. patent [9,513,756]

ABSTRACT

Embodiments of the present invention enable near field communication (NFC) through a touch display. Some embodiments include specialized touch displays with lower electromagnetic dissipation factors than standard touch displays. Some embodiments include methods and devices for detecting the activation or deactivation of NFC communication using the touch display and adapting the touch display to that activation or deactivation. Disclosed techniques for adapting the touch display include optimizing the behavior of the touch display for operation in the face of electromagnetic interference when NFC is activated and conducting a partial recalibration of the touch display when NFC is deactivated.

November 1, 2016 Clover Network, Inc. issued new U.S. patent [9,483,693]

ABSTRACT

Various methods and devices that involve character recognition on a touch display, or other input device, are disclosed. Some of these may facilitate the recognition of characters that are input by people with physical impairments such as those with limited eyesight. A disclosed free-hand character recognition device comprises: an input device having stroke detection circuitry to accept input data from a user; a character recognition engine instantiated using a processing system and a data store; and a network connection to a server. The device additionally comprises a memory storing instructions to: conduct an unobtrusive user recognition procedure to obtain a user identifier from the user; download a cipher from the server to the data store using the network connection and the user identifier; and generate a prediction vector using the character recognition engine, the input data, and the cipher.
