  • Patent number: 6164122
    Abstract: A plurality of test chambers or fixtures are operable for successively testing a plurality of condoms, respectively, in an automated manner. Each test chamber for testing a condom includes a housing containing a porous liner having an interior cavity conformed to the exterior shape of a condom to be tested, whereby a holder carrying the condom is inserted into the liner, a closed pathway for gas flow is provided between a gas port of the holder and the interior volume of the condom, for permitting the condom to be inflated with the gas, causing the exterior walls of the condom to be pushed against opposing inside walls of the liner, permitting gas passing through holes in the condom to flow through pores in walls of the liner to another gas port of the housing for detecting unacceptable holes in the condom using differential pressure techniques and/or gas tagging.

  • Patent number: 6080606
    Abstract: Amorphous silicon thin-film transistors on glass foil are made using exclusively electrophotographic printing for pattern formation, contact hole opening, and device isolation. Toner etch masks are applied by feeding the glass substrate through a laser printer or photocopier, or from laser-printed patterns on transfer paper. This all-printed patterning is a low-cost, large-area circuit processing technology, suitable for producing backplanes for active matrix liquid crystal displays.

  • Patent number: 6074250
    Abstract: A multi-tap 2 has two compartments 4,6, the first including input ports 46,48 for conducting RF signals (RF) and AC power (AC), a microstrip 206 for conducting the RF and AC from input ports 46,48 to a conductor 62 passing through a passageway 64 between compartments 4,6 for passing the RF and AC to the microstrip 206 in the compartment 6. The latter microstrip 206 conducts the RF and AC to output ports 78,82 at an end of the compartment 6 in a first operating configuration. In a second operating configuration, a wire 80 conducts RF and AC away from the output ports 78,82 to a microstrip 90 for conducting the RF and AC to a wire 94 passing through a passageway 96 between compartments 4,6 for further conducting the RF and AC to a microstrip 102 in compartment 4 to divert the RF and AC to alternative ouput ports 84,86 of compartment 4.

  • Patent number: 6071028
    Abstract: An elevator cup configured for vertical sliding movement and for retaining a portion of a solid stick-form product within a dispensing container. The dispensing container has an internal surface, an open top end, a closed bottom end, and means for selectively reciprocally moving the elevator cup in a piston-like manner between a retracted position adjacent the closed bottom end and a fully advanced position adjacent the open top end. The elevator cup includes a horizontal base with top and bottom portions. The top portion is configured for retaining an end portion of the stick-form product. A ductile flange extends along a perimeter of the base for sealing against the internal surface of the container to prevent seepage of liquid product and product volatiles, and to substantially absorb and distribute shock associated with handling of the container, away from the product.
