  • Patent number: 4594660
    Abstract: A collector for the results of a pipelined central processing unit of a digital data processing system. The processor has a plurality of execution units, with each execution unit executing a different set of instructions of the instruction repertoire of the processor. The execution units execute instructions issued to them in order of issuance by the pipeline and in parallel. As instructions are issued to the execution units, the operation code identifying each instruction is also issued in program order to an instruction execution queue of the collector. The results of the execution of each instruction by an execution unit are stored in a result stack associated with each execution unit. Collector control causes the results of the execution of instructions to program visible registers to be stored in a master safe store register in program order which is determined by the order of instructions stored in the instruction execution stack on a first-in, first-out basis.

  • Patent number: 4589463
    Abstract: An expandable volume lavatory is enclosed by a three-panel two-position hinged door. When the lavatory is unoccupied, two adjacent panels of the door may be positioned to fit flush with the surrounding wall or enclosure. When occupied, repositioning of the third panel of the door reconfigures the door to increase available lavatory space. The expandable volume lavatory has particular utility in areas where space is at a premium, particularly on board a vehicle such as an aicraft.

  • Patent number: 4560352
    Abstract: A one-hand operated dispenser for metering dental compositions comprises a casing for accommodating the dental composition between a forward dispensing opening and a plunger which is slidable within the casing. The plunger is advanced by means of a threaded spindle which engages in a nut mounted at the casing rear end so as to be secured against rotation and axial displacement. The casing rear end is rotatably supported within a sleeve which in turn is detachably inserted in a handle. The sleeve is formed with an axially extending slot through which a finger is visible which is disposed at the rear end of the spindle. When the handle is gripped, the casing may be rotated between the thumb and index finger such that the spindle advances the plunger thereby urging the dental composition out of the dispensing opening. During the forward movement of the spindle the finger travels forwardly in the axially extending slot and indicates the level of the dental composition.

  • Patent number: 4532690
    Abstract: A process is described for producing a valve-and-lid assembly composed of a lid and a valve body each of which has a determined configuration and is produced separately in finished condition, the valve body from a synthetic resin of physical properties similar to those of Hytrel, with a Shore hardness of about 78 to 92 when the valve body is to be assembled with an upper body portion resting on the outer lid face about a collar of the lid; and of about 70 to 92 when the valve body is to be introduced completely into the lid collar. The valve body is then placed partially into the collar, or on the mandrel of a pressure piston, and then abruptly struck by the piston to be rammed fully into the collar and stretched so that a lower head of the valve body is moved downwardly just out of a central lid opening at an internal collar end. The mandrel is then withdrawn, permitting the valve body to contract whereby its head sealingly engages the rim about the central opening of the collar.

  • Patent number: 4486659
    Abstract: An emission-electron microscope comprises an evacuated chamber with a superconducting magnet at one end generating a region of very high field strength. In this region a specimen is mounted and the surface of the specimen is irradiated with photons, typically x-ray or hard ultra-violet, from a source. As a result the specimen emits photo-electrons. The magnetic field is axially symmetrical along the length of the chamber and emitted electrons spiral about the lines of force traveling down the chamber into a region of lower magnetic field controlled by electro-magnet coils. Transverse kinetic energy of the electrons is converted into energy along the lines of force of the magnetic field and the divergence of the magnetic field lines causes electrons to produce on a detector an expanded electron image indicative of the distribution of electron flux across the surface region of the specimen.

  • Patent number: 4479108
    Abstract: In a multi-carburetor engine system, a microswitch is provided for detecting when each of the carburetors begins the transition from the idle mode to the high speed mode in response to actuation of the vehicle's acceleration. The transition is marked by the microswitch closing which in turn causes a lamp to be lit. If each lamp associated with each carburetor does not light at substantially the same time, the carburetors are not synchronized and adjustments are required. A lockout circuit is provided for setting the period of time in which all lamps must light arbitrarily low.

  • Patent number: 4467349
    Abstract: An apparatus to allow a prospective customer of articles of clothing to try on one or more articles of clothing without actually putting the articles of clothing on his or her person. This is accomplished by means of an electronically produced full figure image which is composed of the customer's head and a model's body, the model's body attired in articles of clothing to be presented. The composite image is viewed by the customer on a television screen and this gives the effect of the customer being attired in the articles of clothing presented.
