  • Patent number: 8199042
    Abstract: Physical layouts of integrated circuits are provided, which may include an analog-to-digital converter including a plurality of comparators. Individual transistors of each comparator of the plurality are arranged in a one-dimensional row in a first direction. Neighboring comparators of the plurality of comparators are positioned relative to each other in an abutting configuration in a second direction orthogonal to the first direction. The plurality of comparators may include multiple, inter-coupled outputs. Such an ADC may be called a Benorion Analog-to-Digital Converter. A method for fabricating an integrated circuit is also provided.

  • Patent number: 7661220
    Abstract: A firearm trigger assembly for use with a firearm includes a trigger mounted to a forestock of the firearm so that the trigger is movable between a rest position and a triggering position by a forwardly placed support hand of a user.

  • Patent number: 7620507
    Abstract: An impedance estimation method includes measuring three or more impedances of an object having a periphery using three or more probes coupled to the periphery. The three or more impedance measurements are made at a first frequency. Three or more additional impedance measurements of the object are made using the three or more probes. The three or more additional impedance measurements are made at a second frequency different from the first frequency. An impedance of the object at a point within the periphery is estimated based on the impedance measurements and the additional impedance measurements.
