  • Publication number: 20190186361
    Abstract: A recuperator includes a monolithic heat exchanger core having a first side proximal to a combustor inlet and a turbine outlet, and a second side that includes an exhaust outlet. A compressed air inlet is located on the second side, and a compressed air outlet is located on the first side. The compressed air outlet supplies air to a combustor. A first plurality of passageways connects the compressed air inlet to the compressed air outlet. A turbine exhaust inlet is located on the first side, and a turbine exhaust outlet is located on the second side. A second plurality of passageways connects the turbine exhaust inlet to the turbine exhaust outlet. The first and second plurality of passageways are defined by parting plates that extend radially outward in a spiral pattern that maintains a substantially equal distance between adjacent parting plates.

  • Publication number: 20190163860
    Abstract: Implementations described herein are directed to a device with a processor and memory having stored thereon instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to acquire an integrated circuit layout of physical cells from a database and define wirelength relationships between input/output connections and a cell count for the physical cells in multiple domains. The instructions may cause the processor to define wirelength parameters of the integrated circuit layout in each domain of the multiple domains and generate a data file for the integrated circuit layout of the physical cells based on the wirelength relationships and the wirelength parameters to guide power and performance of the integrated circuit layout of the physical cells. The instructions may cause the processor to fabricate, or contribute to the fabrication of, an integrated circuit based on the data file for the integrated circuit layout of the physical cells.

  • Publication number: 20190155937
    Abstract: A geographically distributed system using a hybrid, multi-master design is disclosed. The system may use global tables, for which both reads and writes may be performed locally, but with a single region serving as a master region. All strongly consistent reads and writes may be sent to the master region, whereas eventually consistent reads and writes may be performed in any region with a replica. The master region may not be statically assigned but may move from region to region. The master region may be assigned manually by client preference or may be assigned and updated automatically based on the time of day or workload characteristics.

  • Publication number: 20190144176
    Abstract: A child-resistant closure device for a rigid plastic container having a tapered neck section and method of manufacture. The device has a substantially circular neck and inner lid surface. The neck includes anchors which engage with nodes on the inner lid surface. The tapered section of the neck acts as a spring engaging the nodes with the anchors. The closure device may be engaged by rotating the lid in relation to the neck. To disengage the closure device a simultaneous downward and rotational force must be applied. The lid and the container, including the closure, can be blow molded at the same time or separately.

  • Patent number: 10257107
    Abstract: An encoding or transcoding system uses hypothetical reference decoder occupancy data to at least calculate parameters for output buffers for data streams. An output thread receives HRD buffer occupancy data and calculates buffer occupancy based on duration, rather than absolute occupancy, and correlates the HRD buffer occupancy data with target durations for buffered packets prior to release from the buffer.

  • Publication number: 20180316240
    Abstract: An assembly that includes a main housing. A motor is supported in a motor housing that is supported in the main housing. The motor has an output shaft and a locking mechanism. The motor is adapted to generate a first rotational direction torque and a second rotational direction torque. The motor is adapted to transfer the first rotational direction torque and the second rotational direction torque to a destination via the output shaft. The locking mechanism is adapted to prevent the output shaft from back driving in the second rotational direction after the first rotational direction torque has been transferred to the destination. The motor housing is adapted to rotate in the main housing to unlock the locking mechanism so that the second rotational direction torque can be transferred to the destination.

  • Patent number: 10059854
    Abstract: An aqueous penetrating ink includes a pigment and a water-soluble dye. The ink also includes a humectant in which the water-soluble dye is to be at least partially dissolved. The humectant is present in the ink between 20 percent by weight and 70 percent by weight. This amount of humectant results in a slow evaporation rate. The ink also includes water, making it suitable for use with some inkjet printers. Because the pigment is not dissolved in the humectant or the water, it forms an image on the surface of a printed side of a substrate. The slow evaporation rate of the humectant allows it to carry the ink through a thickness of a substrate so that it is visible on a non-printed side of the substrate.
