  • Patent number: 6280899
    Abstract: Thermally imageable lithographic printing plate precursors and heat-sensitive compositions for use in these printing plate precursors are disclosed. The compositions contain an aqueous developer soluble polymer, such as a phenolic resin; a compound that reduces the aqueous developer solubility of the polymer; and optionally, and infrared absorber. Examples of compounds that reduce the aqueous developer solubility of the polymer are those that contain at least one quarternized nitrogen atom, such as quinolinium compounds, benzothiazolium compounds, pyridinium compounds, and imidazoline compounds. On thermal imaging, the irradiated areas become more soluble in the aqueous developer and can be removed to form a positive image.

  • Patent number: 6246684
    Abstract: The invention provides a method and apparatus for re-ordering data traffic units, such as IP data packets, that may have been miss-ordered during a transmission over a multi-pathway link between a source node and a destination node in a network. The re-ordering apparatus includes a storage medium for intercepting the IP data packets and holding the IP data packets to allow IP data packets delayed on slower pathways to catch-up. The IP data packets in the storage medium are re-ordered based on their sequence number in an attempt to restore the original order of the IP data packets. A maximal time delay variable determines how long a certain IP data packet can be held in the storage medium. The TP data packet is released prior to the maximal time delay variable or as the maximal time delay variable is exceeded.

  • Patent number: 6233245
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the field of data communication networks. More specifically, it pertains to devices and methods for the management of bandwidth on links between routing nodes in data networks. The system is particularly useful for reducing congestion caused by high volume traffic streams. The invention provides a novel router that separates traffic on the basis of data type into separate queues buffers. The various queue buffers are associated with virtual output ports on a common physical link. A scheduler regulates the data release from the queue buffers into the physical link to control the bandwidth portion that is made available to each type of data.

  • Patent number: 6028842
    Abstract: Multi-media networks will require that a data flow be given certain quality-of-service (QOS) for a network connection but pre-negotiation of this sort is foreign to the current data networking model. The real time traffic flow in the data network requires distinct limits on the tolerance to delay, and the variations in that delay. Interactive voice and video demand that the total delay does not exceed the threshold beyond which human interaction is unacceptably impaired. The present invention allows the network to discover the nature of the service for each traffic flow, classifies it dynamically, and exercises traffic conditioning by means of such techniques as admission control and scheduling when delivering the traffic downstream to support the service appropriately.

  • Patent number: 5978376
    Abstract: A plurality of end devices are coupled via a shared port to an asynchronous network in which traffic is carried in cells. A cell multiplexer is disposed between the devices and the port and is adapted to multiplex cells from the devices to the port in the order in which they are received by the multiplexer. The multiplexer broadcasts cells received from the network to all of the devices. Each said device is allocated a respective VCI so that it can identify its own cells from the broadcast cells.

  • Patent number: 5976735
    Abstract: There is described a lithographic plate which comprises a base coated with a photopolymerisable composition which comprises a polymeric binder, at least one free-radically polymerisable ethylenically unsaturated compound and as the photoinitiator combination a metallocene compound, N-phenyl glycine or a substituted N-phenyl glycine or an N-phenyl glycine derivative together with a third component which is a substance which helps in the reaction initiation but also increases the sensitivity of the photopolymerisable composition to a desired region of the spectrum.

  • Patent number: 5920313
    Abstract: In a data processing system, a plurality of user interface objects related into groups are displayed on a desktop; when the user selects one object, such selected object is highlighted on the desktop. The objects related to the selected object are then highlighted using a different intensity. The color of the titlebar of each window in addition may be changed associating a different color to each of such groups of related objects. A pushbutton is also provided on such objects for bringing the related objects to the foreground and moving them near to the selected object.

  • Patent number: 4303067
    Abstract: A flexible bag for dispensing medical liquid, such as intravenous solutions, to a patient. The bag has an improved additive port for periodically injecting medication or other liquid into the bag through a puncturable, resealable plug. The additive port includes a flexible support tube segment sealed between opposed walls of the bag and a substantially stiffer puncture tube sealed to an outer end of a port tube segment, which substantially stiffer puncture tube is in turn sealed to a tear-off closure. A puncturable, resealable plug is held against an integral puncturable (nonresealable) diaphragm of the puncture tube by the retaining member sealed within the puncture tube. This construction provides more reliable, leak proof sealing between components of an additive port of a medical liquid bag.

  • Patent number: 4069399
    Abstract: A TDM PCM communication system includes a plurality of user terminals, a switching network and a CPU for controlling the establishment of transmission paths between the user terminals and the switching network for the transfer of information between predetermined ones of the user terminals. An incoming path carries information bits from the user terminals to the switching network and an outgoing path carries information bits from the switching network to the user terminals. The switching network includes means for transferring single information bits each residing in a time slot period from the incoming path to the outgoing path. The transferring means includes an exchange means for effecting a bilateral exchange of information bits in fixed pairs of time slot periods, whereby paths for information bit transmission are periodically provided between ones of the user terminals, as determined by the CPU.

  • Patent number: 3990966
    Abstract: Calcite is separated and purified from mineral impurities by grinding calcite ore, separating calcite from the impurities by conditioning the ground ore with a cationic flotation reagent selected from the group consisting of 1-hydroxyethyl-2-heptadecenyl glyoxalidine and 1-hydroxyethyl-2-alkylimidazolines and salt derivatives thereof, wherein the alkyl portion of the imidazoline is the alkyl portion of a fatty acid, dry or wet classifying the separated calcite and, if wet, settling the classified calcite in a thickener in the presence of an anionic settling agent.

  • Patent number: 3984643
    Abstract: A pair of interchangeable memories is provided, one of which receives a PCM frame while simultaneously transmitting one, while the other of which, containing the previous frame, outputs the channel bits for parallel processing. Each simultaneous conference is assigned a temporary storage location in which the associated channels are accumulated to yield the total conference signal. Subsequently, each channel is subtracted from its conference total to produce the final conference signal. The final conference signals replace the unprocessed frame in the memory where, at the end of the current frame, it is interchanged with the other memory. And so on.
