  • Patent number: 10763556
    Abstract: A vehicle battery assembly utilizing side cooling plates. This battery assembly avoids a stacked vertical battery and cooling plate or pack arrangement, optimizes tunnel (and other) space utilization, minimizes battery assembly intrusion into the passenger compartment of the associated vehicle, and allows seat position height to be as low as possible within the passenger compartment of the associated vehicle, while still allowing vertical access to the access points and electrical contacts of the battery modules within the battery assembly. Further, such battery assembly is compatible with conventional and novel cooling pipe configurations and cooling systems.

  • Publication number: 20200092259
    Abstract: A medical device information technology (“IT”) data transfer system in one embodiment includes a cluster domain, an external domain and an interface domain. Equipment belonging to the cluster domain may communicate in real time such that availability, safety, security, reliable integrity and performance are guaranteed. The external domain includes equipment not enabled for direct inclusion in the cluster domain, and may include equipment for external information systems, presentation equipment, personal computer equipment, shared medical equipment and bedside medical equipment. The interface domain enables external domain equipment to communicate with cluster equipment in a bidirectional manner. Communication may be via certain access nodes in the cluster. The access nodes enable exchange of information between the open external domain and the closed and private cluster domain.

  • Patent number: 10568106
    Abstract: A method performed by a node in a wireless communication network of estimating parameters used for determining a signal-to-interference measure at a communication device served by a base station, and a node performing the method. The method comprises acquiring an estimate of channel condition between the communication device and the serving base station, and between the communication device and at least one base station of a neighbouring cell, estimating the signal-to-interference measure using the estimate of the respective channel condition, and acquired output power and Physical Resource Block (PRB) utilization of each of the base stations, and receiving an indication of quality of a channel via which the communication device is served by the base station. The method further comprises determining whether a change in the estimate of the signal-to-interference measure is required based on the indication of channel quality, and updating the estimate of the channel condition.

  • Patent number: 10512117
    Abstract: Embodiments herein relate to a method performed by a first transmission point (12) out of at least two transmission points for estimating a channel quality gain of a wireless device (10) served by the first transmission point (12) in a wireless communication network (1). The first transmission point (12) coordinates transmissions with a second transmission point (13) out of the at least two transmission points in the wireless communication network (1). The first transmission point estimates the channel quality gain based on whether a first cell specific reference signal, CRS, configuration of the first transmission point (12) is using radio resources for a first CRS that are colliding or not with radio resources used for a second CRS of a second CRS configuration of the second transmission point (13) in the wireless communication network (1), and a utilization of frequency resources by the second transmission point (13).

  • Patent number: 10432278
    Abstract: A method performed by a first communication device for managing beamforming by a second communication device for transmission of a signal. The first and second communication devices operate in a wireless communications network having a zone in which a radio frequency electromagnetic field strength is required by a regulation to be below a threshold. The first communication device adjusts at least one of an output power and a beam shape in the beamforming. The adjusting is such that the radio frequency electromagnetic field strength in the zone for the output power and the beam shape in the beamforming is below the threshold. The first communication device initiates transmission of the signal to a third communication device operating in the wireless communications network using beamforming with the adjusted at least one of the output power and the beam shape.

  • Patent number: 9470683
    Abstract: A method of determining aggregates of a macromolecule monomer in a fluid containing the macromolecule, comprises the steps of: contacting a sample of the fluid with a sensing surface of an interaction analysis sensor, wherein the sensing surface is capable of specific binding interaction with the macromolecule, determining at least one kinetic parameter for the interaction of the fluid sample with the sensing surface, comparing the determined kinetic parameter or parameters with that or those determined for at least one fluid sample having a known fraction or fractions of aggregates of the macromolecule, and determining therefrom the fraction of macromolecule in the sample that is in the form of aggregate or aggregates.

  • Patent number: 6207381
    Abstract: A method of determining the binding of an oligonucleotide probe to a test nucleic acid sequence comprises the steps of: (a) providing the test nucleic acid sequence in single-stranded form, (b) contacting the test nucleic acid sequence under hybridizing conditions with a solution containing an oligonucleotide probe which is complementary to a defined portion of a standard nucleic acid sequence, (c) immobilizing to a solid support a nucleic acid fragment at least part of which is complementary to said oligonucleotide probe, (d) contacting the solution from step (b) with said solid support, and (e) determining the amount of binding of oligonucleotide probe present in said solution to its complementary nucleic acid fragment on the second solid support, said amount being inversely related to the amount of binding of the oligonucleotide probe to the test nucleic acid sequence.

  • Patent number: 5972612
    Abstract: A method of analysing nucleic acid sequences comprises measuring by surface sensitive detection technique the binding interaction between a first nucleic acid sequence and a second nucleic acid sequence, one of the first and second nucleic acid sequences being immobilized to a solid phase surface, to determine the affinity or an affinity related parameter for the binding reaction as indicative of the extent of complementary between the first and second nucleic acid sequences. The method is characterized in that the measurement of the binding interaction is performed at annealing conditions adjusted such that the dissociation rate constant for the binding interaction corresponding to full complementarity between the first and second nucleic acid sequences is greater than about 10.sup.- per second, thereby permitting equilibrium for the interaction to be rapidly attained.

  • Patent number: 5748732
    Abstract: A master decoder for use with a master smart card and at least one slave decoder for use with a slave smart card are arranged in a pay tv system, wherein the master decoder receives slave entitlement messages from a central management device and writes the slave entitlement messages to the slave smart cards when the slave smart cards are inserted in the master decoder. This ensures that the slave decoders are used within close proximity of the master decoders, such as in the same dwelling.

  • Patent number: 5243763
    Abstract: A butter knife having a knife blade (10) and a handle (16) is configured at the junction between blade and handle with a transverse channel (26) whose side walls (20, 22) are substantially parallel and disposed perpendicularly to the blade. The rear wall (22) has a vertical extension which is approximately twice the vertical extension of the front wall (20), so as to form a stop when the knife blade is moved slidingly inwards on the rim (34) of a plastic tray (22) having a folded edge. The width of the chann el is such as to enable the channel to be pressed over the tray rim so as to clamp the knife firmly in a substantially horizontal position when the tray is placed on a table.
