Abstract

Systems and techniques for preserving and improving ink jet nozzle health and printing reliability are disclosed herein. The method may include monitoring whether a triggering event has occurred. In response to detecting the triggering event has occurred, pumping at least a portion of ink contained in a header tank in a direction toward an ink cartridge through a tube connecting the header tank to the ink cartridge. The header tank connected to a print head included as a part of a scan head. The method may further include circulating the ink through the tube back into the header tank, and agitating the scan head by moving the scan head along an x-y gantry. Additional methods may include reverse purging, ejecting a portion of ink through nozzles on the print head while simultaneously wiping a nozzle plate included on the print head, and randomizing print head location when printing.

Abstract

A method of integrating a logical access control system with a physical access control system is disclosed. A soft token is received at a hard-ware accessory from a client device of a user. The soft token includes a payload. The payload includes information about the user that is stored in a user profile of the logical access control system. Based on a verifying of the soft token using a certificate extracted from a trust store of the hardware accessory, the information about the user that is included in the payload is parsed. Based on the information about the user satisfying one or more access criteria of a reader associated with a physical access control system, the reader is triggered. The triggering includes emulating a transaction associated with the physical access control system.

Abstract

An RFID assembly (10) includes an RFID chip (14) having a coupling loop (15) formed as part of the RFID chip (14). In this manner, the RFID chip (14) can be inductively coupled to a far-field antenna (16) for RFID communications, without any physical connections between the RFID chip (14) and the coupling loop (15) and/or the far-field antenna (16). This results in a high temperature resistance of the RFID assembly (10), which can be advantageously used, in particular, during tracking of parts in assembly processes requiring higher temperatures.

Abstract

it is provided a method for performing a cryptographic signing operation of a data item. The method is performed in a server and comprises the steps of: receiving, from a smartcard reader, a request for a data item to be collectively signed, the request comprising an indication of the data item and an identifier of a smartcard, wherein the collective signing requires the use of both a smartcard secret key and a server secret key for the collective signature to be valid; establishing a secure channel with the smartcard; collaborating with the smartcard over the secure channel to provide a collective signature of the data item, wherein the server bases the signature on the data item and a server secret key, wherein the server secret key is specifically associated with the smartcard secret key, resulting in a collective signature; and sending the collective signature to the smartcard reader.
