  • Publication number: 20120032618
    Abstract: In order to activate a control element (4) of a drive apparatus (1) for driving an object that can be moved between two end positions, the control element having a response delay (?tanspr) a parameter (Fakt) influenced by the drive apparatus (1) is monitored and compared with a specified threshold (FTh), upon the achievement of which a control signal is output to the control element (4); a pre-threshold (Fv) to be achieved before the achievement of the threshold (FTh) is defined, upon the achievement of which pre-threshold a pre-control signal is output to the control element (4) for the preparatory activation thereof, and afterwards further monitoring for the achievement of the actual threshold (FTh) is performed, wherein upon achievement of the actual threshold (FTh), the control element activation is retained, whereas if the actual threshold (FTh) is not achieved, the control element activation is rescinded.

  • Publication number: 20110095705
    Abstract: A filter device (10) for filtering high-frequency interferences, such as due to switching flanks of a DC converter, has a current path (4) between an input (2) and an output (3), and an inductor (L) in the current path (4), wherein the inductor (L) is disposed in the current path (4) as a first component and is connected to the input (2), and wherein a reverse polarity protective diode (D) is disposed in series with the inductor (L) downstream thereto.

  • Patent number: 7921177
    Abstract: A method for providing remote direct memory access (RDMA) between two computers, preferably between central processing units (CPUs) and a functional subsystem of a computer system as part of their network communication, e.g. using TCP/IP. Tasks of analyzing network protocol data and the actual RDMA operations can be offloaded to the functional subsystem with this method. Further, the functional subsystem cannot compromise the status of the first computer system as only access to certain allowed memory locations is granted by a memory protection unit during phases of actual data transfer between the functional subsystem and the CPUs.

  • Patent number: 7426877
    Abstract: A device for determining the actual reversal of the direction of rotation of a rotational drive continuing to operate after previous switching of the direction of rotation, in particular for window lifting systems or sliding roof drives in a motor vehicle, has a sensor wheel (1) with a coding structure (9) configured asymmetrically in respect of distribution along the periphery of the sensor wheel (1); a single detector (2), which generates a rotor speed-dependent pulse signal during rotation of the sensor wheel (1) by scanning the coding structure (9); and an evaluation unit (4), to which the pulse signal is fed and which determines the actual reversal of the direction of rotation by evaluating the pulse edges; wherein the coding structure (9) is formed by coding sectors (10) of a first sector width (11) and a reference coding sector pair (12) with a second sector width (13).
