  • Patent number: 9294300
    Abstract: A battery management and protection system includes a string of battery management and protection integrated circuit devices that may be connected to one another in a daisy chain configuration. Some of the devices can be electrically connected to one or more battery cells. Each device includes an inter-device communication interface comprising a daisy chain line driver. The system includes a controller external to the string of devices and a bi-directional connection lines connecting each device in the string to an upstream and/or downstream device in the string. The system can allow the external controller to access any single one of the devices in the daisy chain, any subset of the devices in the daisy chain, or all the devices in the daisy chain using a single command that is transmitted from one device to the next over a bi-directional connection line.

  • Publication number: 20090061392
    Abstract: A unit to be arranged in the oral space, which unit can, in particular, be a diagnosis and/or therapeutic treatment device. If the external shell of a unit of this type gets damaged, there is a risk of parts of the external shell detaching or of harmful substances leaking from the interior of the unit. In order to detect damage of this type as early as possible, the unit is provided with an indicator substance that is enclosed within the external shell and can be detected outside of the external shell in case the external shell breaks. The use of edible bitter substances for detecting damage on diagnostic and/or therapeutic units used in the oral spaces as well as to the use of edible dyes for detecting damage on diagnostic and/or therapeutic units used in the oral space are also provided. The dye is provided on the interior of the corresponding unit to leak out in case the corresponding unit gets damaged.

  • Patent number: 6811071
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a metal structure in which the metal structure has separate walls forming channels through which a fluid can flow includes at least partially wetting the walls inside the channels with an adhesive, bringing the metal structure into contact with a solder that adheres to the adhesive, and carrying out a heat treatment to form soldered connections between the separate walls. The method is distinguished by the fact that the dosed delivery of the adhesive is performed by at least one dosing element having a honeycomb configuration and having an inlet side (8) and an outlet side, the element being connected to the adhesive. The adhesive enters the dosing element through the inlet side and is uniformly distributed into the channels through the outlet side. The invention also includes a device for wetting the metal structure with the adhesive.
