  • Publication number: 20060034613
    Abstract: A system for configuring fiber optic communication channels between arrays of emitters and detectors comprises: an array of light emitters; an array of light detectors; a bundle of optical fibers disposed between the arrays of light emitters and light detectors for conducting light from the light emitters to the light detectors, wherein the number of optical fibers in the bundle is greater than the number of light emitters in the array and wherein an area cross-section of the bundle of optical fibers overlaps the array of light emitters and the array of light detectors; and logic for mapping at least one emitter to at least one detector to establish at least one optical fiber communication channel between the array of light emitters and the array of light detectors. The system is further operative to monitor data communication over the at least one fiber optic communication channel and to reconfigure the mapping based on the monitored data communications thereof.

  • Publication number: 20060034609
    Abstract: A system for self-configuring optical communication channels between arrays of emitters and detectors comprises: an array of light emitters; an array of light detectors roughly aligned with the array of light emitters; and self-configuration logic for controlling the light emitters of the emitter array to transmit optical data to the array of light detectors and for monitoring received optical data of the light detectors of the detector array to establish light emitter/detector optical channels between the arrays of light emitters and light detectors based on optical data transmission error rates.

  • Publication number: 20060018216
    Abstract: A method of aligning optical data communication channels between system functions comprises: emitting an array of light beams from a corresponding array of data emitters in response to electrical data signals generated from a first system function; emitting light beams from two control emitters in response to electrical control signals generated from the first system function; receiving light beams from the data emitters by a corresponding array of data detectors to form an array of data optical communication channels; conducting electrical data signals reproduced from the received data emitter light beams to a second system function; receiving light beams from the two control emitters by two control detector sections to form two control optical communication channels; conducting electrical control signals reproduced from the received control emitter light beams to a second system function; monitoring a multiplicity of light detectors of each of the two control detector sections to determine an offset in opti

  • Patent number: 6800965
    Abstract: A method and corresponding apparatus for improving the power consumption of a switch input circuit is described having resistive elements, the method including the steps of providing a wetting current to at least one switch through a respective resistive element, and modulating the wetting current with a pulse width modulation signal to provide a reduced average voltage applied to the respective resistive element, and thereby reduce the power consumption of the circuit.

  • Patent number: 6624162
    Abstract: This invention provides a compound of the formula (I): or the pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof wherein R1 is hydrogen, halo or alkyl; R2 and R3 are independently hydrogen, alkyl, alkenyl, alkynyl, aminoalkyl or hydroxyalkyl; or R2 and R3 taken together with the nitrogen atom to which they are attached may form hetrocyclic; R4 is hydrogen, halo, acyl, amino, amido, aryl, arylalkyl, or heteroaryl; R5 is hydrogen, halo, alkyl alkenyl, alkynyl, acyl, amino, amido, aryl, arylalkyl, or heteroaryl; R6 is hydrogen, alkyl or alkoxyalkyl; X is NR9 wherein R9 is hydrogen or alkyl; and Y is (CR7R8)n wherein n is an integer from 0 to 5. These compounds have 5-HT4 receptor binding activity, and thus are useful for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease, non-ulcer dyspepsia, Functional dyspepsia, irritable bowel syndrome or the like in mammalian, especially humans. This invention also provides a pharmaceutical composition comprising the above compound.

  • Patent number: 5161245
    Abstract: A pattern recognition system having inter-pattern spacing correction is disclosed which recognizes words and determines where to place spaces between those words by (a) storing each input character in one or more buffers in memory, (b) comparing the last entry of each buffer against a dictionary of known words, (c) copying last entries which match words to new buffers and placing a space after the last entry in the old buffer, (d) deleting a buffer when a last entry from that buffer does not at least match the beginning of a known word in the dictionary, (e) repeating steps (a) through (d) until all the buffers have been deleted or until an end character, such as a carriage return or period has been stored in each buffer, (f) again comparing the last entries from each buffer to the dictionary and deleting any buffer having a last entry which is not a known word in the dictionary or which does not end with a space followed by an end character, and (g) saving and/or outputting the remaining words.

  • Patent number: 4704703
    Abstract: A data item input processor operates on the smallest subdivision of data as it is entered into a data processing system to provide control and/or error functions nearly simultaneously with the entry of each such data item. As each item is entered a tree logic search is conducted within a stored data base to determine if the entered item is permissible, that is, whether it completes an allowable sequence of data items. If the item cannot be found a signal is provided which may be used to initiate any function desired by the user.
