  • Patent number: 9927021
    Abstract: A planet carrier for a planetary gear set includes a pair of carrier plates. A planet gear is positioned between the carrier plates of the pair of carrier plates. A pin extends between the carrier plates of the pair of carrier plates through the planet gear such that the planet gear is rotatable relative to the carrier plates of the pair of carrier plates on the pin. A retainer is removably mounted to one of the pair of carrier plates. The pin is positioned against the retainer at the one of the pair of carrier plates. The pin may be rotatable relative to the carrier plates of the pair of carrier plates.

  • Publication number: 20150282630
    Abstract: An adjustable mattress lift system, positionable beneath a mattress for enabling users to adjust the mattress into a plurality of positions, includes an air pump motor, an upper extremity section and a lower extremity section. The upper extremity section includes at least two inflatable bladders. Each of the at least two inflatable bladders of the upper extremity section is separately connected to the air pump motor and independently inflatable by the air pump motor. The lower extremity section includes at least one inflatable bladder. The least one inflatable bladder of the lower extremity section is separately connected to the air pump motor and independently inflatable by the air pump motor from the at least two inflatable bladders of the upper extremity section.

  • Patent number: 8193641
    Abstract: A transistor gate comprises a substrate having a pair of spacers disposed on a surface, a high-k dielectric conformally deposited on the substrate between the spacers, a recessed workfunction metal conformally deposited on the high-k dielectric and along a portion of the spacer sidewalls, a second workfunction metal conformally deposited on the recessed workfunction metal, and an electrode metal deposited on the second workfunction metal. The transistor gate may be formed by conformally depositing the high-k dielectric into a trench between the spacers on the substrate, conformally depositing a workfunction metal atop the high-k dielectric, depositing a sacrificial mask atop the workfunction metal, etching a portion of the sacrificial mask to expose a portion of the workfunction metal, and etching the exposed portion of the workfunction metal to form the recessed workfunction metal. The second workfunction metal and the electrode metal may be deposited atop the recessed workfunction metal.
