  • Patent number: 10768221
    Abstract: A test equipment has a signal input/signal output and a use-site calibration unit for determining a user-site compensation function. The user-site compensation function has a compensation magnitude function and a compensation Hilbert phase function. The calibration unit has a level meter and a calculator. The level meter is configured to measure a magnitude characteristic of the electrical signal, the magnitude characteristic being the basis for the determination of the compensation Hilbert phase function. The calculator is configured to determine a Hilbert phase characteristic of the electrical signal based on a Hilbert transformation of a function dependent on the measured magnitude characteristic and to determine the compensation Hilbert phase function on the basis of the Hilbert phase characteristic.

  • Patent number: 8939086
    Abstract: A running gear for a rail vehicle, including a wheel unit, a motor unit and a running gear frame unit being supported on the wheel unit. The motor unit is connected to the wheel unit to drive the wheel unit. Further more, the motor unit is suspended to the running gear frame unit via a connecting device. The connecting device is transversally elastic to allow a relative transverse motion between the motor unit and the running gear frame unit. The connecting device has a transverse rigidity being sufficiently low such that a contribution of the motor unit to an inertial moment of the running gear frame unit about the height direction is reduced by at least 50%.

  • Patent number: 7919333
    Abstract: The invention relates to spherical and magnetic silicagel particles which are provided with an increased surface by incorporating SiO2 colloids and produced by a method for inverse dispersion cross-linking of silica sols. The addition of certain metallic oxides to said silica sols and a subsequent tempering make it possible to obtain silicagel particles which exhibit increased nucleic acid binding properties and are used for separating a nucleic acid and isolating biomolecules.

  • Patent number: 7647506
    Abstract: In an integrated-circuit chip having intercommunicating modular functional units of electrical circuits, wired transmission of sensitive information signals between the functional units of the electrical circuits involves generating a reference signal and coding the sensitive information signals, after being emitted by a generating functional unit in the chip, with the reference signal to disguise the sensitive information represented by the sensitive information signals. The coded sensitive information signals are decoded with the reference signal before the sensitive information signals are received by a processing functional unit in the chip. At least one signal of the reference signal and the decoded sensitive information signals are monitored, and a hacker attack is identified in response to a determination that the decoded sensitive information signal is other than a plausible signal.
