  • Patent number: 8220839
    Abstract: A pipe insert providing a connection between pipe ends allowing fluid flow access between the pipe ends. The pipe insert having a central section with an internal thread that extends along the length of the central section and outer sections having inner and outer threaded ends. The inner threads allow attaching of the outer section into the central section so that the pipe insert may vary the relative displacement between the free ends of the pipe insert to correspond to the spacing between the pipe ends. The outer threaded ends having a releasably attaching connection to the outer section to provide a connection between the spaced pipe ends. The pipe insert is particularly useful during replacement of an appliance located between the pipe ends. The pipe insert is adapted to receive flow control and/or sensing element for measurement of fluid flow between the pipe ends.

  • Patent number: 8199236
    Abstract: The present invention discloses structure of a two-gate field effect transistor (FET), named as charge gated FET, and presents various active pixel sensor (APS) and multimode architectures using the device which has only one, or two on-pixel transistors for high resolution, high gain and fast frame rate APS arrays. It is also disclosed a new method of addressing pixels of an APS array by applying the addressing voltage pulse directly to the gate of the amplifying transistor of the pixel architecture, eliminating the row select transistor from the pixel circuit.

  • Patent number: 8199735
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and system for modifying a transmit diversity signal comprising receiving at least one input parameter, calculating at least one virtual parameter based on the at least one input parameter, converting the at least one virtual parameter into an actual parameter, and modifying a transmit diversity signal based on the actual parameter. Variations of the invention are possible, including mapping the input parameter to an actual parameter by various methods, for example, quantization, hysteresis and other methods. Embodiments of the invention may include an apparatus adapted to modify a transmit diversity signal comprising a processor to calculate at least one virtual parameter based on at least one input parameter, convert said at least one virtual parameter to an actual parameter, and modify said transmit diversity signal based on said actual parameter.

  • Patent number: 8166093
    Abstract: An apparatus and method is provided to generate digital audio signals, such as stereo signals, from a multimedia program. The program can be distributed directly through an electronic network, or indirectly by recording the program on a medium such as a DVD or CD. The multimedia program is normally compressed using a standard DVD, MPEG or similar compression protocol. In accordance with the invention, the program is decoded to generate a multimedia output signal and an audio output signal. The multimedia signals can be played immediately or at will on a suitable multimedia device. The audio output signal is compressed, using for instance MP3 or ATRAC3, and then transmitted to an external device for storage as a digital file. The digital file can then be replayed at will.
