  • Publication number: 20200162045
    Abstract: A high-frequency module can be used in communication satellites. The high-frequency module contains an electronic unit and a housing. The housing at least partially encloses the electronic unit, and the electronic unit is arranged at least partially in an interior space of the housing. An internal connector is arranged on the housing, which is coupled to the electronic unit such that electrical signals can be transmitted between the electronic unit and the internal connector. The internal connector is constructed integrally with at least a part of the housing. This allows a thermo-mechanical stress on the electronic unit to be reduced.

  • Publication number: 20200113812
    Abstract: A water swellable cross-linked elastomer and method of preparation is provided. The elastomer can advantageously be included in skin treatment compositions. Swellable elastomers in accordance with the invention are particularly well suited for inclusion in skin tightening cosmetic products. The elastomers can be formulated to form a film. When applied to skin, an elastomer in accordance with preferred embodiments of the invention can adhere to the skin and shrink as it dries. This can provide a skin tightening, lifting and wrinkle smoothening effect upon drying. This effect can temporarily mask the appearance of wrinkles.
