The search results of a first iteration of a biometric search are used to form a probe for subsequent iterations searches in a biometric database. his enables the search methodology to “drill down” into the database to find matching biometric templates. In addition, the results of a search using a t ...

James V Howard, William H Mirley Jr, Steven M Whitman, Rodney P Jackson, William J Loconzolo: Machine for placing surface mount components. Emhart, Spencer T Smith, June 1, 1993: US05214841 (8 worldwide citation)

The geometric features of a supported component in a machine for mounting surface mount electronic components are either frontlighted or backlighted for inspection purposes. To backlight the features a fluorescent surface above the component is excited with UV light. Since UV light reflected from th ...
