  • Patent number: 7110442
    Abstract: A satellite positioning system (SATPS) receiver has a mix of standard and enhanced digital channel processors. The standard digital channel processors perform continuous tracking. During a low SNR and/or fast acquisition mode, the enhanced digital channel processor accumulates samples of a SATPS signal that are identically positioned within corresponding PRN code repetition periods, and plays back the stored accumulated values of the samples in an integration period to a correlation section for correlation with a locally generated PRN code.

  • Patent number: 7100270
    Abstract: A method of fabricating printed circuit boards integrating thick film resistor components and thin film circuit portions thereon is disclosed. This is a two-phase process, where the first phase is to create multiple thick film resistors, and the second phase is to create a thin film circuit portion on the substrate with thick film resistors in existence, involving the printing of the electrodes and the resistive coating for the thick film resistors, and the printing of a low temperature passivation layer over the resistors; and the thin film circuit is formed by titanium and copper layers over the substrate, and electroplating of interconnections to form copper plated circuit. The present fabrication process does not require drilling of holes nor electroplating of leads to the resistors, thus the whole process can be automated to a greater extent than with conventional techniques.

  • Patent number: 7091925
    Abstract: An indoor UHF antenna device for a digital television includes a flat structural design. The flat indoor UHF antenna device includes a circuit board having a wireless signal processing circuit and an antenna. A metal wire bent as a long rectangular antenna and having a gap forms the antenna. Two signal feeder points are defined at two locations having a same distance from two long sides of the long rectangular antenna respectively, and thereby the antenna includes a first antenna part having a gap and a second antenna part for impedance matching. The antenna is set horizontally on the circuit board with the signal feeder points welded on the circuit board. Thereby the antenna device of the present invention is enhanced to receive wireless signals of polarized waves transmitted by different transmitters.

  • Patent number: 7066089
    Abstract: An automatic re-inked stamp has a stamp base an ink pad, a character unit, a housing and a bottom cover that attaches to the stamp base without having to press the character unit down. The stamp base has a bottom, an opening at the bottom and a lip formed on and protruding out from the bottom. The ink pad is mounted slidably in the stamp base, and the character unit is rotatably mounted below the ink pad and abuts the ink pad when it moves into the stamp base. The housing has a biasing member and is mounted slidably over the stamp base. The bottom cover has two latches that hook the lip on the stamp base to hold the bottom cover securely on the stamp base.

  • Patent number: 7044779
    Abstract: An electronic connector socket has an upper RJ-45 hole and a lower USB hole in which at least two USB sockets can be formed. When manufacturers mass-produce the electronic connector sockets, separately making USB socket modules is not necessary anymore. The time to manufacture the electronic connector sockets also can be reduced. The manufacturers are able to increase profit from making the electronic connector sockets.

  • Patent number: 7011906
    Abstract: A battery for electrical appliances that consume low voltage battery has a body containing a fluid material that is composed of active carbon and water therein, two conductive rods functioning as the opposite electrodes of the battery and extending into the body, and a water receptacle attached to the body. Water stored in the receptacle is able to be drawn into the body via a water absorbent bar to react with the two conductive rods. With such an arrangement, a chemical reaction of the two electrodes and water generates electricity to provide to an electrical appliance.

  • Patent number: 6989299
    Abstract: A method for fabricating on-chip spacers for a TFT panel exposes a photoresist layer on top of the TFT panel using two exposure processes, one through the bottom of the TFT and the other through a mask over the TFT panel. The exposure process through the bottom exposes all photoresist covering windows on the TFT panel and leaves all photoresist corresponding to an opaque grid corresponding a TFT driving circuit. A second exposure process through a mask above the photoresist leaves part of the photoresist in the opaque grid unexposed. The exposed photoresist is removed leaving on-chip spacers only on the opaque grid. Therefore, the on-chip spacers can not affect the display quality and can be easily formed on a high dpi TFT panel.

  • Patent number: 6989001
    Abstract: A breakable syringe with a safety sleeve has a syringe body (10), a needle (13) with a needle base (12), a safety sleeve (20), and a breaking device. The needle (13) is attached to the syringe body (10) by inserting the needle base (12) into the syringe body (10). The safety sleeve (20) slidably sleeves the syringe body (10) and clamps the breaking device with the syringe body (10). By sliding the safety sleeve (20), the safety sleeve (20) can be selectively positioned at different locations to expose or enclose the needle (13) by the multiple engaging devices and even to urge the breaking device to break the syringe body (10). Therefore, the needle (13) of the syringe is conveniently enclosed and the syringe can be immediately broken after use.
