The below-operating-system security agent is configured to trap an attempted access of a resource of the electronic device, access one or more security rules to determine whether the attempted access is indicative of malware, and operate at a level below all of the operating systems of the electronic device accessing the memory.

Spring probe

A spring probe includes a spring sleeve and a needle having a body located inside the spring sleeve and a head protruded out of a lower non-spring section of the spring sleeve and having a stopping block. The lower non-spring section is abutted against and fixed to the stopping block, facilitating assembly of the spring probe.

Process for production of graphene/silicon carbide ceramic composites

We provide a method for the in situ development of graphene containing silicon carbide (sic) matrix ceramic composites, and more particularly to the in situ graphene growth within the bulk ceramic through a single-step approach during sic ceramics densification using an electric current activated/assisted sintering (ecas) technique. This approach allows processing dense, robust, highly electrical conducting and well dispersed nanocomposites having a percolated graphene network, eliminating the handling of potentially hazardous nanostructures.

Infrared sensor design using an epoxy film as an infrared absorption layer

A mems ir sensor, with a cavity in a substrate underlapping an overlying layer and a temperature sensing component disposed in the overlying layer over the cavity, may be formed by forming an ir-absorbing sealing layer on the overlying layer so as to cover access holes to the cavity. The sealing layer is may include a photosensitive material, and the sealing layer may be patterned using a photolithographic process to form an ir-absorbing seal.
