  • Patent number: 8303766
    Abstract: A method and device for evaporating a predeterminable volume of fluid includes successive addition of partial volumes of the predeterminable volume to a supply line at different adding rates, at least partially evaporating the partial volumes forming vapor film between them and a supply line wall, conveying the partial volumes through the supply line to an evaporator surface, and applying the partial volumes to an evaporator surface region varying as a function of mass and/or volume adding rate of the partial volume, permitting effective evaporation of fluid, particularly urea/water solution. Utilization of the highest possible proportion of evaporator surfaces is achieved by mass and/or volume addition rate-dependent distribution of impingement surfaces on the evaporator surface. This heating strategy in the supply line region ensures the Leidenfrost effect when individual partial volumes are added.

  • Patent number: 8300415
    Abstract: An electronic component for an integrated mechatronic system has at least two housing parts with at least one housing base, a housing cover, and an electrical connection between the components disposed in the interior of the housing and components located outside the housing. The electrical connection is fixed on the housing base. The housing cover is glued directly to the electrical connection and/or the housing base and, in this manner, enables lasting hermetically sealed protection for the sensitive electronic components.

  • Patent number: 8300275
    Abstract: Before image data are screened for the subsequent exposure of a printing form, files needed for the screening step are changed in such a way that the values of individual elements in the data fields are changed. The number of elements whose values are changed is determined by evaluating contiguous regions within the data fields. These can be, for example, threshold value matrices in which individual matrix elements are set to a value corresponding to the color white, or which, for the half-tones, are calibrated to a reduced value of the full-tone density. In the latter case, the full-tone image points are screened with a frequency-modulated screen.

  • Patent number: 8299672
    Abstract: A flux-focused, shaped permanent magnet includes a body of magnetic material having multiple surface contouring to form a reduced flux side with convex surfaces and an increased flux side with concave surfaces. The surfaces develop high and low resistance external flux paths creating focused asymmetric flux fields. A magnetic unit having the shaped permanent magnet and a magnetic flux attracter or two shaped permanent magnets interconnected by two segmented permanent magnets and a kinetic device having a stationary stator ring, a rotor disc rotating within the stator ring and a multiplicity of the magnetic units on the stator ring and the rotor disc, are also provided.

  • Patent number: 8300519
    Abstract: A method and a device are provided for crosstalk evaluation of a channel, wherein the channel is represented and/or modeled by a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) system connecting a first network component with at least one second network component. The MIMO system contains first coefficients associated with transmission lines that are in particular associated with crosstalk. The crosstalk contains a near-end crosstalk (NEXT) portion and a far-end crosstalk (FEXT) portion. The first network component sends a signal to one second network component; the far-end crosstalk portion and the near end crosstalk portion are evaluated.

  • Patent number: 8301025
    Abstract: An optical noise signal is added to an optical data signal on the receiver side, and a signal quality of the data signal is determined. The magnitude of the added noise signal is varied, and a function of the signal quality of the data signal is determined in dependence on the added noise signal. Subsequently, a first straight line is approximated to the previously determined function for smaller values of the added noise signal, and a second straight line for larger values of the added noise signal. The optical signal-to-noise ratio is read from the intersecting point of the first straight line with the second straight line. Thus, the ASE present is derived from the controlled addition of additional ASEs, and the optical signal-to-noise ratio is determined. The process is particularly suited for DWDM systems because it works even with very narrow channel separations, or with narrowband optical filtration along the separation.
