  • Patent number: 10523224
    Abstract: An integrated circuit includes a signal network and a phase detector circuit. The signal network includes an adjustable delay circuit. The adjustable delay circuit is coupled at an intersection in the signal network between branches of the signal network. The signal network generates a first signal at a first leaf node of the signal network in response to a second signal. The signal network generates a third signal at a second leaf node of the signal network in response to the second signal. The phase detector circuit compares phases of the first and third signals to generate a phase detection signal. The adjustable delay circuit adjusts a delay provided to the first signal relative to the second signal to reduce a skew between the first and third signals based on the phase detection signal indicating that the first and third signals have the skew.

  • Patent number: 10507623
    Abstract: A pressing tool is provided for producing fiber composite components, including a first tool part and a second tool part moveable relative to the first tool part. In the closed state of the pressing tool, the two tool parts form a shaping cavity for accommodating a fiber semi-finished product to be shaped and each have a tool surface delimiting the cavity. In addition, at least one of the tool surfaces has at least two adjacent flat sections inclined toward each other which are connected to each other by way of a curved transition section. The curved transition section has at least one groove-shaped recess facing the cavity.

  • Publication number: 20190130558
    Abstract: In an aspect of the disclosure, a method, a computer-readable medium, and an apparatus are provided. The method may include placing the sample on the sample-holder of a phase-contrast microscope, establishing a connection between the processor of the mobile terminal and a controller of the microscope, disposing a mobile terminal on a support so that its digital image sensor is positioned in front of an ocular, launching a counting program so that the processor performs successive counting sequences on distinct analysis areas of the sample, wherein between two counting sequences the processor controls a two-axis motorized system to displace the sample, and wherein for each counting sequence the processor implements the following steps of: setting the focus, capturing a main image, and analyzing the main image in order to count the number of fibers.

  • Patent number: 10241844
    Abstract: First and second circuits in an integrated circuit that generate local hot spots are activated at different times in order to reduce heat generation within each of the first and second circuits. The first and second circuits in the integrated circuit have the same circuit architecture. The first circuit processes data during a first time period, and heat generation is reduced in the second circuit during the first time period. A data path of the data is then switched from the first circuit to the second circuit. The second circuit then processes the data during a second time period after the first time period, and heat generation is reduced in the first circuit during the second time period. The data path of the data is then switched from the second circuit back to the first circuit. The first circuit then processes the data again.

  • Publication number: 20170099026
    Abstract: The invention relates to a solar power concentrator (CSP) formed by a series of long flat (Fresnel-type) mirrors oriented in a north-south direction, each mirror having a single east-west axis of rotation, tracking the height of the sun. Together the mirrors reflect the light throughout the day towards a single cylindrical-parabolic mirror which concentrates the solar radiation onto a small area close to the focal line of the parabola on which an absorber is located that heats fluids and/or generates electricity.

  • Patent number: 9531390
    Abstract: An integrated circuit includes first and second data channel circuits and first and second inductor-capacitor (LC) tank oscillator circuits. The first data channel circuit generates a first data signal in response to a first clock signal. The second data channel circuit generates a second data signal in response to a second clock signal. The frequencies of the first and second clock signals are substantially the same. The first LC tank oscillator circuit generates a first periodic signal. The first clock signal is generated in response to the first periodic signal. The second LC tank oscillator circuit generates a second periodic signal. The second clock signal is generated in response to the second periodic signal. The first and second LC tank oscillator circuits generate non-overlapping frequency ranges for the first and second periodic signals.

  • Patent number: 9240804
    Abstract: Receiver circuits in serial lanes each generate a synchronous clock signal that is aligned with a master clock signal to allow synchronous transfer of data onto the master clock domain without corruption. A serial-to-parallel converter circuit in each receiver circuit converts a serial data signal into parallel data signals in response to one of the synchronous clock signals. Phase detection circuitry generates an indication of a phase shift based on a phase offset between the synchronous and master clock signals. A clock signal generation circuit provides an adjustment to a phase of the synchronous clock signal based on the indication of the phase shift. The serial-to-parallel converter circuit adjusts positions of bits indicated by the parallel data signals based on the adjustment to the phase of the synchronous clock signal.
