|20100148312||REINFORCED SMART CARDS & METHODS OF MAKING SAME - Reinforced smart cards with and methods of making an integrated circuit chip for smart are disclosed. In some embodiments, a method includes generally providing an integrated circuit wafer including a plurality of integrated circuits, providing a stiffener, attaching the stiffener top surface to the wafer bottom surface, and physically separating integrated circuits. The wafer can be substantially disc-shaped with a wafer perimeter. Integrated circuits can be disposed on the wafer's top surface, and the wafer's bottom surface can span a wafer bottom area. The stiffener can have a top surface spanning an area corresponding to a circuitry portion of the wafer's top surface (where integrated circuits can be disposed). The stiffener's can be applied to the wafer's bottom surface to form a wafer/stiffener assembly. Integrated circuits of the wafer/stiffener assembly can be separated by removing wafer material between integrated circuits and stiffener material between regions of the stiffener underlying the integrated circuits. Other aspects, features, and embodiments are claimed and disclosed.||06-17-2010|
|20100039234||RF POWER CONVERSION CIRCUITS & METHODS, BOTH FOR USE IN MOBILE DEVICES - This patent application teaches and describes radio frequency (RF) power conversion circuits and methods both for use in mobile devices (such as smart cards). Embodiments of the present invention include wireless personal ID cards or dongle including a fingerprint sensor. A fingerprint matching system can reside on cards. Power provided to the fingerprint sensor and on board processer(s) can be provided by a wireless signal provided to the card. The card can include an RF power conversion circuit configured to receive wireless RF energy and convert the wireless energy for powering electronics on the card. Other aspects, embodiments, and features of the present invention are also claimed and described.||02-18-2010|
|20080201658||Wireless Media Player Device and System, and Method for Operating the Same - A wireless media player device includes (a) a flash memory, (b) a main processor adapted to process digital signals and to control wireless communications, the main processor including first and second interfaces adapted to wirelessly communicate with an external host computer and an external headset, respectively, (c) a signal antenna coupled to the main processor, (d) a power circuit coupled to the main processor, adapted to provide power to components of the media player device, (e) a wireless charger adapted to receive power from an external power source and charge the power circuit, and (f) a display provided on a surface of the media player device. The media player device is wearable and may further includes a casing and an attacher (such as a wrist band) adapted to fasten the media player device onto a user such that the display is visible from the user.||08-21-2008|
