  • Patent number: 10023163
    Abstract: A power brake system having electronic slip regulation, and a method for controlling a power brake system having electronic slip regulation. A return line is equipped with a pressure medium storage unit for storing pressure medium with a pressure that is greater than an ambient atmospheric pressure, and is equipped with a blocking device that is controllable and that is situated between the pressure medium storage device and the reservoir. In addition, there is a pressure medium connection between the pressure medium storage unit and the plunger working space. A controlling of a power brake system takes place using the blocking device in such a way that the return line is blocked relative to the reservoir as soon as a plunger piston, driven by a drive unit, has traveled a definable path in the forward direction.

  • Patent number: 10027476
    Abstract: A method for generating a secret or a key in a network, the network including at least one first and one second member and a transmission channel between at least the first and the second members. The first and second members being able to place at least one first value and one second value on the transmission channel. The first member causes a first member value sequence and the second member causes a second member value sequence to be transmitted over the transmission channel largely synchronously with each other. The first member and the second member generate a shared secret or a shared key on the basis of information about the first member value sequence and the second member value sequence and on the basis of an overlap value sequence resulting from the overlap of the first member value sequence with the second member value sequence on the transmission channel.

    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a micromechanical component including a substrate and including a cap, which is connected to the substrate and, together with the substrate, encloses a first cavity, a first pressure prevailing and a first gas mixture having a first chemical composition being enclosed in the first cavity. An access opening connecting the first cavity to surroundings of the micromechanical component is formed in the substrate or in the cap. The first pressure and/or the first chemical composition is adjusted in the first cavity. The access opening is sealed by introducing energy or heat via laser into an absorbing part of the substrate or the cap. During the step for forming the access opening, a first access opening section is formed generally perpendicularly to a surface of the substrate or the cap, and a second access opening section is formed generally perpendicularly to and in parallel to the surface.
