  • Publication number: 20210159643
    Abstract: An electrical connector for high speed signals. The connector has multiple conductive elements that may serve as signal or ground conductors. A member formed with lossy material and conductive compliant members may be inserted in the connector. The conductive compliant members may be aligned with conductive elements of the connector configured as ground conductors. For a connector configured to carry differential signals, the ground conductors may separate pairs of signal conductors. The member may further include a conductive web, embedded within the lossy material, that interconnects the conductive compliant members. For a receptacle connector, the conductive elements may have mating contact portions aligned along opposing surfaces of a cavity. The conductive elements may have contact tails for attachment to a printed circuit board and intermediate portions connecting the mating contact portions and the contact tails. The conductive compliant members may press against the intermediate portions.

  • Publication number: 20100219991
    Abstract: Methods or sub-component method step/s necessary for lossless data compressions of input binary (or adaptable for even N-ary) data file, or for compression/representation of sequential list of positive integers (or offsetted to all be positive integers >0, which may be a sequential list of variable length binary base positive integer digit numbers or even N-ary base positive integer digit numbers) are described, providing many magnitudes orders improvements over existing state-of-art best available methods such as Rice-Coulomb encodings/RunLength based/LZW encodings . . . etc. The methods or sub-component method step/s further makes possible or forms the basis/sub-component method step/s for ‘infinite data compressions’ algorithms to be adapted designed implemented.

  • Publication number: 20090316832
    Abstract: Basic idea is that in addition to sending +1 and ?1 a third state is sent. This third state is a lack of any transmission whatsoever. Suggests sending frequency 0 for symbol 0, frequency 1 for symbol 1, frequency 2 for symbol 2, frequency 0 & frequency 1 for symbol 3 etc. Also suggests using 2 frequencies and phase modulating each. Frequency 1 has 2 possible phase states and frequency 2 has 2 possible phase states, therefore 4 bits can be coded. If send only frequency 2 with its two phase states, this enables us to send two more bits. If send neither frequency 1, nor frequency 2 this indicates 1 other bit state. Therefore 8 bits can be coded.

  • Patent number: 7545799
    Abstract: At present to facilitate multimedia/fax/realtime applications on the Internet requires the IP packets to be given priority over other packets by methods such as RSVP/Tag Switching to ensure Quality of Service. Here is presented a method whereby an Internet Time multiplexed Circuit Connection is established enabling data communications at both ends in exactly the same way as in the case where the Internet Connection so established is a PSTN switched circuit connection, at wire speed with same transmissions quality. At predetermined periods (the single individual periods of which may be different in time durations at each nodes) all selected nodes between source & destination are arranged to automatically switch incoming signals to next node at wire speed without buffering delay/route computation delay, thus establishes a Time Multiplexed Circuit Connection for the durations of the predetermined periods, as in the case where a simplex PSTN dedicated circuit connection has been established.
