||WO||WO/2014/053803 - A DATA PROCESSING APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR PROTECTING SECURE DATA AND PROGRAM CODE FROM NON-SECURE ACCESS WHEN SWITCHING BETWEEN SECURE AND LESS SECURE DOMAINS||10.04.2014||
||PCT/GB2013/052107||ARM LIMITED||GROCUTT, Thomas Christopher|
A data processing apparatus and method are provided for processing data. The data processing apparatus comprises processing circuitry for performing data processing operations in response to program code, and a data store for storing data, the data store comprising a plurality of regions including a secure region and a less secure region. The secure region is configured to store sensitive data accessible by the processing circuitry when operating in a secure domain and not accessible by the processing circuitry when operating in a less secure domain. The data store also comprises a plurality of stacks, including a secure stack in the secure region. The processing circuitry includes stack access circuitry that is configured in response to an event requiring a transition from the secure domain to the less secure domain, to store predetermined processing state to the secure stack. In particular, if the event is a first type event, the predetermined processing state stored by the stack access circuitry comprises at least a return address which is stored at a predeterminated relative location on the secure stack. Conversely, if the event is a second event type, the predetermined processing state stored by the stack access circuitry comprises at least a first value which is stored at the predetermined relative location, where the first value is not a valid address for program code. The processing circuitry further comprises fault checking circuitry configured on receipt of a first event type return from the less secure domain to the secure domain, to identify a first fault condition if the data stored in the predetermined relative location is the first value. Such an approach provides protection against attacks from the less secure domain that seek to use the wrong return method, for example performing a function call return from an exception, or an exception return from a function call.

||PCT/GB2013/052108||ARM LIMITED||GROCUTT, Thomas Christopher|
Processing circuitry can operate in a secure domain and a less secure domain. In response to an initial exception from background processing performed by the processing circuitry, state saving of data from a first subset of registers is performed by exception control circuitry before triggering an exception handling routine, while the exception handling routine has responsibility for performing state saving of data from a second subset of registers. In response to a first exception causing a transition from the secure domain from a less secure domain, where the background processing was in the less secure domain, the exception control circuitry performs additional state saving of data from the second set of registers before triggering the exception handling routine. In response to a tail-chained exception causing a transition from the secure domain to the less secure domain, the exception handling routine is triggered without performing an additional state saving.

A receiver comprises a plurality of receiver modules. Each receiver module receives, substantially simultaneously, a symbol of a composite signal. Each symbol comprises a plurality of bits. The bits of the symbols being received in a predetermined transmission order. The receiver further comprises a detector configured to determine reliability information of each received bit based on a priori reliability information and a feedback stage configured to provide a priori reliability information to the detector in the predetermined transmission order.

||PCT/GB2013/052579||MATHARU, Manmit Singh||MATHARU, Manmit Singh|
A through-the-lens (TTL) adjustable binocular loupes device (100) comprising a spectacle-like frame (102), first and second support elements (104, 106), first and second adjustable TTL loupes (108, 110) pivotably supported by the first and second support elements (104, 106) respectively. The support elements (104, 106) are slidably mounted for linear movement thereof, and therefore the loupes (108, 110), relative to the rim (116) of the frame (102). Infinite adjustment mechanisms (200, 156, 158) are provided for effecting infinite adjustment of the loupes (108, 110) linearly along a first axis relative to the rim (116), and pivotal!y about a second, horizontal and third, vertical axis respectively.

||PCT/GB2013/052580||EDWARDS, John||EDWARDS, John|
An attachment for hollow rung ladders includes an elongate bar (1), a fixed abutment such as spacer (3A) at one end of the bar, and a handwheel adjuster (2) screwed onto a co-operatively threaded end portion of the bar. A pair of spaced resilient tubular members (4A) and (4B) are separated by a rigid spacer member (3B), and a holding clamp (7) is rotatably mounted on the bar (1) adjacent to the handwheel (2). In use, the resilient members (4A) and (4B) are inserted into a hollow rung of the ladder and the handwheel (2) is adjusted to produce axial compression and radial expansion of the resilient members (4A, 4B) which thereby firmly engage the internal surface of the rung. The accessory is thus firmly anchored against angular movement with fewer turns of the handwheel. The clamp (7) can be used to hold a pot or tray, and various tool holders can be secured to the clamp.

An injector apparatus is disclosed for use with a container of therapeutic material to deliver a metered dose of therapeutic material therefrom. The apparatus comprises a first body portion arranged to be fixed relative to the container and defining a first conduit portion for the delivery of the therapeutic material from said container and a second body slidably connected to the first body and defining a second conduit portion, in fluid communication with the first conduit portion. Relative sliding motion between the first body and second body results in the displacement of one of the conduit portions into the other conduit portion such that the combined volume of the conduit may be decreased.

||PCT/GB2013/052591||ROBERTSON, William Duncan||ROBERTSON, William Duncan|
The present invention provides a connector (10) for biomechanical purposes, e.g. for use in dental or orthopaedic surgery. The connector comprises a core (1) having a generally spherical body mountable between base and cover units, which allows for rotational movement of the core unit. Preferably the connector allows the core to be selectively locked in a desired orientation. The connector allows for robust and balanced connection of restorative components to anchor components (6). The connector allows for angular flexibility, which allows a clinician to place anchors in the most appropriate position for secure and robust fitment of the restorative component.
