  • Patent number: 7247498
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for supplying a portion of a fluid stream and, alternately, a fluid of known composition and concentration to an analyzer are provided. The fluid stream is directed through a series of connected chambers formed in an integral housing. A sampling needle has an inlet in one of the chambers and an outlet in fluid communication with the analyzer. When desired, a tube or vial containing a known fluid may be inserted into a chamber containing the sampling needle, so that the known fluid will be supplied to the analyzer. A second needle provides ventilation to the vial to prevent the formation of a vacuum as the known fluid is drained from the vial.

  • Publication number: 20040201525
    Abstract: The present invention provides an antenna array. The antenna array comprises a substrate having a first side and a second side opposite the first side. The first side has a first conductor comprising narrow elements and wide elements. The second side has a second conductor comprising narrow elements and wide elements. Such that the first conductor narrow elements are above the second conductor wide elements and the first conductor wide elements are above the second conductor narrow elements. The first conductor further has a feed element and a terminating element.

  • Publication number: 20040070537
    Abstract: This invention presents new and alternative design techniques of single feed Dual/Tri ISM band PIFA for wireless system applications. To attain the advantages of and in accordance with the purpose of the present invention, dual and/or tri ISM band PIFA antennas are provided. In particular, an antenna comprises at least a ground plane, a radiating element, a short, and a feed tab. The short provides a connection between the ground plane and the radiating element. The feed tab connected to the radiating element provides RF power and provides initial impedance match. While the feed tab provides initial impedance match, additional impedance match and frequency control are obtained by the inclusion of one or more of a parasitic element, a slot, tuning stubs, and capacitive elements.
