  • Patent number: 3936603
    Abstract: A digital phase locked loop is described which includes a first gate through which incoming pulses are passed to subsequent data processing circuits, a second gate through which reference pulses having a predetermined pulse repetition rate equal to the repetition rate of the wanted incoming pulses are fed to a reset input of a counter such that each reference pulse resets the counter to zero, and a clock generator for feeding clock pulses to the counter. The counter is thereby repeatedly stepped through a predetermined cycle, the nominal period of the counter cycle being equal to the nominal period of the reference pulses, and means responsive to the number stored in the counter reaching a first predetermined value then latches both the first and second gates open for a predetermined relatively short period in each counter cycle during which the counter passes through its zero state.

  • Patent number: 3936777
    Abstract: A filter network particularly suitable for construction in micro-electronic circuitry for application in telephony systems is formed by simulating inductance in a circuit arrangement incorporating only resistance, capacitance and amplifying elements. The symmetry of the circuit arrangement and coupling into the filter network simplifies fabrication and reduces the number of amplifiers previously required to perform similar filter functions. The filter networks may be built up by coupling a chain of circuit arrangements each including two unity gain amplifiers having a series resistor/capacitor feedback network and a non-inductive element interconnecting the two amplifier feedback networks.

  • Patent number: 3934997
    Abstract: Glass or like stemware is manufactured in one piece by part-forming an article having a glob of material in the position where the stem is required, placing the glob between rollers which have a shape defining the required shape of the stem, and rotating the glob between the rollers while advancing the rollers inwardly. Subsequently a foot forming member is axially advanced towards the glob to apply pressure against the glob to form a radially-extending foot.

  • Patent number: 3930581
    Abstract: A sheet feeding mechanism is described in which the sheets in a batch of sheets are sorted into different output stackers. The sheet feeding mechanism includes a buffer store for receiving and temporarily holding a batch of sheets while a predetermined batch value is verified, and a batch verifier responsive to the passage of each sheet along a given path for comparing a measured batch value with a reference value to derive an error signal. The sheets are extracted from the store one by one and a sheet sorting mechanism sorts the sheets into different output stackers. The sorting mechanism includes means responsive to the output of the verifier for segregating the sheets of the batch extracted from the store whenever the error exceeds a predetermined value.

  • Patent number: 3930714
    Abstract: A dielectric optical waveguide can be made by forming a bundle of rods in which a single rod made of glass suitable for forming the core of the dielectric optical waveguide is surrounded by three rods made of a glass suitable for forming the cladding of the dielectric optical waveguide. The bundle of rods is heated and drawn down to a suitable size. By increasing the number of rods in the bundle it is possible to make a dielectric optical waveguide with a plurality of cores.
