  • Patent number: 10811817
    Abstract: An electrical connector includes a housing having a mating end and a wire end with a base and terminal channels extending through the base into the mating end. The terminal channels receive terminals mated with a mating electrical connector. The base has a wire support supporting wires extending from the terminals. The wire support includes support walls forming wire channels. A wire dress cover is coupled to the wire support and includes an end wall and wire pushers extending from the end wall. The wire pushers load the wires into the wire channels. The wire pushers are received in the wire channels to hold the wires in the wire channels. The wires are supported at the rear by the wire pushers and at both sides by the support walls to provide strain relief for the wires in the wire support.

  • Patent number: 10804168
    Abstract: Particular embodiments described herein provide for a silicon layer, where the silicon layer includes a profile and a thermal conductor coupled to the silicon layer, where the thermal conductor includes one or more residual stresses. The thermal conductor is modified based on the one or more residual stress such that when pressure is applied to the thermal conductor, a profile of the thermal conductor at least approximately matches the profile of the silicon layer. In an example, the thermal conductor is modified by removing material from one or more areas of the thermal conductor and the thermal conductor is coupled to the silicon layer by one or more pressure inducing mechanisms.

  • Publication number: 20200222978
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to partial integrated core-shell investment casting molds that can be assembled into complete molds. Each section of the partial mold may contain both a portion of a core and portion of a shell. Each section can then be assembled into a mold for casting of a metal part. The partial integrated core-shell investment casting molds and the complete molds may be provided with filament structures corresponding to cooling hole patterns on the surface of the turbine blade or the stator vane, which provides a leaching pathway for the core portion after metal casting. The invention also relates to core filaments that can be used to supplement the leaching pathway, for example in a core tip portion of the mold.

  • Publication number: 20200218463
    Abstract: A method of indirection replay for a flash storage system includes writing data, in a host stream, to blocksets of the flash storage system. The host blocksets are assigned a major sequence number incremented from the most recently closed host blockset. The method includes writing an indirection journal to each host blockset which are associated with the assigned major sequence number. The method includes writing data, in a garbage collection (GC) stream, to other blocksets of the flash storage system. The GC blocksets are assigned a major sequence number, based on the most recently closed host blockset, and a minor sequence number, incremented from the most recently closed GC blockset. The method includes writing an indirection journal to each GC blockset which are associated with the assigned major and minor sequence numbers. The indirection table is constructed by replaying the journals of the blocksets in order of major sequence and minor sequence numbers.
