  • Patent number: 10312380
    Abstract: A semiconductor diode includes a semiconductor body, having a first main area formed from an inner area, on which a first contact layer is arranged, and from an edge area, a current path from the first contact layer to a second contact layer arranged on a second main area situated opposite the first main area, wherein the semiconductor diode, by virtue of the configuration of the first contact layer or of the semiconductor body, is formed such that upon current flow, such current flows through a current path having the greatest heating per unit volume, and which proceeds from a further partial area of the inner area, wherein the further partial area is arranged on the other side of a boundary of an inner partial area of the inner area, said inner partial area preferably being arranged centrally, with respect to an outer partial area adjoining said inner partial area.

  • Patent number: 9032696
    Abstract: A method of shrinking a heat shrinkable film onto product units, in which a heat shrinkable film is wrapped around a product unit so as to form an opening in the heat shrinkable film on a side of the product unit. A hot, gaseous medium is then emitted from at least one discharge or nozzle to thereby shrink the heat shrinkable film on the product unit while simultaneously moving the product unit on a conveying arrangement along a transport path. The emission of the hot, gaseous medium is controlled such that essentially all of the hot, gaseous medium emitted from the at least one discharge to shrink the heat shrinkable film on the product unit, during movement of the product unit along the transport path, is directed at the side of the product unit having the opening in the heat shrinkable film.

    Abstract: A system for determining the position, orientation and system gain factor of a probe includes a plurality of magnetic field sources and at least one magnetic field sensor, such that a combination of a magnetic field sensor and a magnetic field source generates a unique measured magnetic field value. The system includes a probe whose gain, position, and orientation affect these unique measured magnetic field values. A processor is configured to receive and iteratively process these unique measured magnetic field values to determine a system gain factor indicative of the gain of the probe and a plurality of location factors indicative of the position and orientation of the probe.
