  • Patent number: 11371420
    Abstract: A cooling arrangement for cooling charge air of a supercharged internal combustion engine. In a charge-air line that leads to the internal combustion engine, there are provided a compressor arrangement, which has at least one compressor stage, and an expansion arrangement, which has at least one expansion stage for lowering the pressure level and thus for cooling the charge air. A cooling device is provided between the compressor arrangement and the expansion arrangement. The at least one compressor stage and the at least one expansion stage are connected in series and are respectively connected in terms of drive to an electric motor. The compressor arrangement has at least two compressor stages connected in parallel.

  • Publication number: 20210266102
    Abstract: An exemplary method comprises a first hearing device receiving a data packet transmitted from a source device; incrementing, in response to receiving the data packet, a first payload counter value; receiving a second payload counter value transmitted from a second hearing device; comparing the second payload counter value to the first payload counter value; and performing, based on the comparing, an action with respect to the first payload counter value.

  • Patent number: 11083031
    Abstract: Provided is a method for operating two hearing devices. The method includes establishing a first bi-directional wireless connection between a primary hearing device and a wireless communication device over a first wireless link, eavesdropping on the first wireless link, by a secondary hearing device, over a second wireless link between the wireless communication device and the secondary hearing device, and establishing a second bi-directional wireless connection between the primary hearing device and the secondary hearing device over a third wireless link. The method further includes monitoring the link quality of the first wireless link and/or the second wireless link, and assigning to either the secondary hearing device or the primary hearing device the role of transmitting audio-related packets towards the wireless communication device, based on the quality of at least one of the first wireless link or the second wireless link. An audio communication system is also provided.

  • Patent number: 10623872
    Abstract: A hearing system includes first and second hearing devices. The first hearing device is configured to render streaming audio from an audio source by establishing a wireless link with the audio source and receiving audio packets transmitted from the audio source over the wireless link in accordance with an acknowledgement-based transmission protocol. The second hearing device is configured to render the streaming audio from the audio source by eavesdropping on the wireless link to receive and store the audio packets in a buffer. The buffer has a playback duration based on a total number of audio packets currently stored in the buffer. To stop the second hearing device from rendering the streaming audio, the first hearing device abstains, for a time period at least equal to the playback duration of the buffer, from acknowledging successful receipt of an audio packet transmitted by the audio source over the wireless link.

  • Patent number: 10534573
    Abstract: Systems, methods and software for sample rate conversion with unknown input and output clocks are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method for an asynchronous transfer of audio data includes: receiving the audio data by an antenna of a receiver (RX); storing the audio data in an input buffer of the RX; and receiving data words from the input buffer by a sample rate converter (SRC). The consecutive data words are received from the input buffer at an adjustable period T. The method further includes tracking a filling level of the input buffer; and based on the filling level of the input buffer, adjusting the adjustable period T. When the filling level of the input buffer is below the target level of the input buffer, the adjustable period T is increased. When the filling level of the input buffer is above the target level of the input buffer, the adjustable period T is decreased.
