  • Patent number: 11418890
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to microphone and other sensor assemblies having a transduction element and an integrated circuit. The integrated circuit includes a switched-capacitor delta-sigma analog-to-digital converter (ADC) including a first integrator stage having a switched-capacitor circuit and a first plurality of parallel amplifiers. A logic circuit coupled to the integrator circuit is configured to selectably disable a subset of enabled amplifiers of the first integrator stage during a first phase of operation and to re-enable the subset of disabled amplifiers during a second phase.

  • Publication number: 20210194179
    Abstract: A plug includes a body portion as well as first and second electrical strip contacts. The body portion has a length, an upper surface and a lower surface. The first electrical strip contact is proximate the upper surface of the body portion and has a length substantially equal to or less than the length of the body portion. The second electrical strip contact is proximate the lower surface of the body portion and has a length substantially equal to or less than the length of the body portion.

  • Publication number: 20200233039
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates in a first aspect to a method of detecting leakage current from a DC bias voltage circuit of an integrated circuit for a capacitive microelectro mechanical systems (MEMS) transducer. A test signal with a predetermined frequency and level is superimposed on a first DC bias voltage generated by the DC bias voltage circuit.

  • Publication number: 20130217097
    Abstract: A progeny cell derived from a parent cell, wherein the progeny cell comprises at least one gene encoding MrgA protein or a functional homologue thereof and/or a DNA segment operably linked with the encoding gene, wherein said gene and/or DNA segment is manipulated with respect to the parent cell; the progeny cell comprises two or more copies of a gene encoding MrgA protein or a functional homologue thereof; or the progeny cell is mutated with respect to the parent cell; whereby the progeny cell produces greater amounts of MrgA protein or a functional homologue thereof than the parent cell.

  • Publication number: 20070092738
    Abstract: The present invention relates to tie-coat compositions for fouling-release paint systems. The invention provides a method of coating a substrate with a coating composition comprising at least two types of functional polysiloxane compounds selected from epoxy-functional polysiloxanes, amino-functional polysiloxanes, and particular adhesion promoting agents of the polysiloxane type. The present invention also provides a substrate coated with such a composition and a composition particularly useful for said method. The binder phase may also comprise constituents of epoxy paint compositions, e.g. epoxy resins and amine curing agents. The compositions are particularly relevant in combination with diorganopolysiloxane-based fouling-release coatings and anticorrosive epoxy primer coatings.

  • Patent number: 4738471
    Abstract: A method for checking the integrity of a series of printed sheets of the type in which a consecutive series of codes is printed on the sheets is provided which reduces significantly the time necessary for checking after collation of the sheets and significantly reduces the possibility of error in collation. The method includes printing on an extreme edge of each of the sheets a mark which is positioned on the edge in dependence upon the code printed on the sheet. Thus when the sheets are collated and fanned so that the extreme edges are exposed, the marks can be observed in a stairstep pattern so that any omitted marks or improperly positioned marks can readily be observed indicating an incorrect positioning of a sheet or the omission or addition of sheets.
