  • Publication number: 20190034336
    Abstract: The embodiments of the present invention relate to a file system, and more particularly, a file system compatible with multiple types of non-volatile memory for safety-critical embedded systems, such as an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) of an automobile. Some examples of the disinitiate file closure include an ECU having RAM and non-volatile system memory managed by a file system.

  • Patent number: 10042053
    Abstract: A charge port detector system may include a charger arm, a set of ultrasonic sensors carried by the charger arm, and one or more physical processors. The set of ultrasonic sensors may receive ultrasonic signals from one or more ultrasonic emitters of a charging target. Times at which the set of ultrasonic sensors received the ultrasonic signals may be obtained. The charger arm may be moved based on the times at which the set of ultrasonic sensors received the ultrasonic signals. The movement of the charger arm may align the charger arm to a charge port of the charging target.

  • Publication number: 20170220252
    Abstract: This relates to a file system, and more particularly to, a file system compatible with multiple types of non-volatile memory for safety-critical embedded systems, such as an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) of an automobile. Some examples of the disclosure include an ECU having RAM and non-volatile memory managed by a file system. In some examples, non-volatile memory can include a flash-emulated EEPROM (FEE) device. A wrapper function can provide an interface between a file system and one or more hardware devices, allowing the file system and application code to be compatible with multiple kinds of hardware.

  • Patent number: 4573349
    Abstract: An improved needle position indicator for a fuel injection nozzle holder is provided by the present invention. The present invention is an apparatus for centering the position indicator mounting bracket within the interior chamber of the nozzle holder. The mounting bracket is centered by a resilient ring which surrounds the mounting bracket. By use of the present invention, manufacturing tolerances of the nozzle holder, mounting bracket, and seat spring may be relaxed while at the same time maintaining optimum levels of performance of the needle position indicator.

  • Patent number: 4040105
    Abstract: A magnetic disk drive unit or machine adapted to receive disk-jacket assemblies for magnetically reading from and writing on a disk in such an assembly. The jacket of the assembly is made of a material with high electrical resistance which accumulates static electricity through usual handling. The machine includes a skirt having an electrically conducting layer thereon and hung on an upper portion of the machine so that the skirt is in contact with an outer surface of the jacket for draining off an electrostatic charge accumulation on the jacket very quickly.

  • Patent number: 4038693
    Abstract: A rotary magnetic record disk assembly comprising a magnetic disk which is rotatably disposed within a containing jacket of material of high electrically insulating characteristics. An electrically conductive layer is disposed on the inside surface of the jacket for draining away electrostatic charge on the jacket.
