  • Publication number: 20200376615
    Abstract: A production method for producing a heat exchanger assembly, which may serve for at least one of cooling and heating a functional component via a heat exchanger fluid, may include first providing a duct flat body, which may have a flow duct comprising a clear flow cross section, through which heat exchanger fluid may be flowable. The method then may include forming the duct flat body as part of a rolling process or as part of a roller burnishing process to form a bent cylinder jacket-shaped heat exchanger housing. The method then may include arranging the bent heat exchanger housing on a jacket surface of the functional component, and fixing the heat exchanger housing on the jacket surface of the functional component.

  • Patent number: 10137823
    Abstract: An adaptive cornering light system for a motor vehicle includes an exterior mirror head, housing at least one lighting module that having a plurality of LEDs arranged in sectors to provide different lighting functionalities. One LED or light sector is provided for adaptively illuminating a cornering area that extends along the side of the vehicle toward the front of the exterior mirror head. This “cornering LED” is adaptively activated if the speed of the vehicle is below a threshold speed, or in response to additional optional parameters such as steering angle, turn-signal blinker activation, and running lights activation. Another LED or light sector may be used as a security light to illuminate or display a message on the ground in the door area adjacent the side of the vehicle. Interior lights are also disclosed. User input may also control options for illumination.

  • Patent number: 9886408
    Abstract: A protection circuit can be used with a computer system having a master device and at least one slave device that are connected by an inter-integrated circuit (I2C) bus. A first access request is received that includes an address that identifies a first slave device. In response to a permissible mode, the first access request is communicated to the first slave device using the I2C bus. A sticky protection bit can be set. In response to the sticky protection bit being set, the protection circuit can be placed in a protected mode. A second access request is received. The second access request can be determined to be a protected access to the first slave device. In response to the determining and the protected mode, the second access request to the first slave device can be denied.
