  • Publication number: 20200244376
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to over- the-air, OTA, reciprocity calibration for a distributed multiple input-multiple output, D-MIMO, system. By having antennas of the system divided in two separate groups, based on pairwise path loss, and by performing two measurements only, one of which is transmitting by the first group and simultaneously receiving by the second group, and the second by transmitting by the second group and simultaneously receiving by the first group, relations between receiver and transmitter impairments used in the measurements are determined, assuming reciprocity. By relating receive to transmitter impairments for each antenna relative to one or more anchor antennas, calibration values are calculated. By adjusting a quota of the receiver to the transmitter impairment for each antenna such that the relations are fulfilled, reciprocity calibration is achieved, based on two measurements only.

  • Publication number: 20200180929
    Abstract: A device for filling a fill product into a container to be filled in a beverage bottling plant. The device includes a fill product reservoir for storing the fill product, a fill product channel, and a filling member in fluid communication with the fill product reservoir via the fill product channel. The filling member is configured to introduce the fill product into the container to be filled and the filling member communicates via media channels to provide media flows for two or more functions: flushing the container with a flushing gas, pre-pressurizing the container before it is filled, returning gas displaced during the filling of the container, relieving a gas overpressure in the container, and circulating a hot fill product through the filling member for controlling a temperature. A single media channel of the media channels is configured to provide the media flows for at least two of the functions.
