  • Patent number: 11353010
    Abstract: An inclined-axis axial piston machine includes a housing, a drive shaft and a cylinder barrel. The drive shaft is mounted in the housing so as to be rotatable with respect to a first axis of rotation and is integral with a flange. Each piston is coupled to the flange via a ball joint. A multiplicity of counting perforations are arranged in a periodically distributed and continuous manner over an outer circumferential surface of the flange. The housing accommodates a sensor arranged opposite the counting perforations such that rotation of the drive shaft causes a signal change at the sensor. Each counting perforation is formed integrally from the flange, in the form of a recess having a single continuous perimeter. A side wall of the recess, starting from the perimeter, extends uninterruptedly, without sharp bends or offsets, over the entire circumference of the perimeter.

  • Patent number: 11354411
    Abstract: Instruction classification and software intrusion detection is performed. Program instruction execution of a processor of a microcontroller unit (MCU) is monitored via side-channel signal analysis, the monitoring including capturing a signal trace of a physical property of the MCU that leaks information correlated with the program instruction execution of the MCU, the signal trace indicating a value of the physical property over time. From the signal trace, time domain features, frequency domain features, and Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC) features are extracted. A model is utilized for instruction detection to identify an execution signature based on the time domain features, frequency domain features, and MFCC features. The execution signature is compared to one or more reference instruction signatures. A remedial action is performed responsive to the execution signature failing to match to the one or more reference instruction signatures.

  • Patent number: 11355993
    Abstract: A vehicle seat actuator includes an electric motor and a gear set that connects the drive motor to the seat and transmits the output of the motor to the vehicle seat. The drive motor and gear set are each disposed in an individual, dedicated housing component. The individual housing components are then assembled together to provide the actuator. The housing components are maintained in the assembled configuration using snap fit mechanical fasteners. Each snap-fit fastener includes a receiving portion provided on one housing component and an insertion portion provided on the other housing component. The receiving portion may be a slot formed in the gear housing that is partially obstructed by an elastic member, while insertion portion is an ear that protrudes from an outer surface of the drive motor housing and forms both a snap-fit engagement with the elastic member and a press-fit engagement with the slot.

  • Patent number: 11356297
    Abstract: A user station for a bus system and a method for transmitting a message at different bit rates in a bus system is provided. The user station includes a communication control unit for creating a message for at least one further user station of the bus system. The communication control unit is designed to provide in the message a first phase to be transmitted at a first bit rate, and to provide a second phase to be transmitted at a second bit rate, which is faster or slower than the first bit rate. The communication control unit is designed to provide in the message between the first and second phase a predetermined bit pattern for a bit rate switchover between the first and second bit rate. The predetermined bit pattern includes, both before and after the bit rate switchover, a flank for synchronization.

  • Patent number: 11349411
    Abstract: The invention relates to an adjustment of a PWM frequency in a power converter in accordance with the input voltage of the power converter. By means of the adjustment of the PWM frequency in the power converter in accordance with the input voltage, a ripple on the input side of the power converter can be varied. In particular, it is possible, in the case of high input voltages, to minimize the ripple by adjusting the PWM frequency and thus to reduce the sum of the input voltage and the ripple.
