  • Patent number: 8596584
    Abstract: A high-lift system for an aircraft with a main wing and a slat that by way of an adjustment device is adjustable relative to the main wing to various adjustment states, with a gap resulting between the rear of the slat, which rear faces the main wing, and the main wing, where the size of the gap results from the adjustment state of the slat relative to the main wing, where in the interior of the slat an air guidance channel with at least one inlet and an outlet is formed, where the inlet is arranged at the rear, which faces the main wing, in order to influence the airflow in the gap.

  • Publication number: 20130062473
    Abstract: The invention pertains to a flow body with a flow surface section that extends in a flow body wingspan direction and a flow body chord direction and with a plurality of fluid lines that lead into the flow surface section and respectively form an opening therein, as well as to a method for taking in and/or blowing out fluid through at least one fluid line that leads into a flow surface section of a flow body and respectively forms an opening therein.

  • Publication number: 20090000749
    Abstract: The invention relates to a drive unit for a Venetian blind or the like for inserting into a head rail, including an electric motor and output shafts at both ends driven via gear, where the electric motor is combined with components serving for acoustically damping and uncoupling, that are shaped such that they are insertable into the head rail together with the electric motor as well as to a Venetian blind or the like as such.

  • Publication number: 20070150287
    Abstract: The invention describes a method for driving a dialog system (1) comprising an audio interface (11) for processing audio signals (3,6). The method deduces characteristics (2) of an expected audio input signal (3) and generates audio interface control parameters (4) according to these characteristics (2). The behaviour of the audio interface (11) is optimised based on the audio interface control parameters (4). Moreover the invention describes a dialog system (1) comprising an audio interface (11), a dialog control unit (12), a predictor module (13) for deducing characteristics (2) of an expected audio input signal (3), and an audio optimiser (14) for optimising the behaviour of the audio interface (11) by generating audio input control parameters (4) based on the characteristics (2).

  • Patent number: 7099425
    Abstract: An integrated circuit and a method for tuning an internal clock signal with respect to data that is to be emitted includes an adjustment circuit with a compensating circuit for synchronizing the internal clock signal with respect to the data that is to be emitted. Setting data, which is dependent on first adjustment data and on second adjustment data, is applied to the compensating circuit. The first adjustment data is determined using a tuning method during the front-end test, and is stored in a read only memory. The second adjustment data is determined in a fine-tuning method in the finished manufactured component, and is stored in a read/write memory.

  • Patent number: 7043653
    Abstract: An internal clock signal of a logic/memory component that receives signals is transmitted as a reference clock to a transmitting logic/memory component. With the aid of the reference clock, the transmission clock of the output unit of the transmitting logic/memory component is generated, such that transmitted signals arrive in a receiving unit of the receiving component synchronously with the internal clock signal of that component.

  • Publication number: 20030237032
    Abstract: In the case of an inventive method for electronically testing memory modules, a memory module to be tested is connected to a test computer system. A computer system configuration file and test information for the memory module to be tested are then electronically read into the computer system. Next, the memory module is electronically tested by step-by-step automatically processing the test steps in at least one functional test. The test results are electronically stored in at least one result file step by step and are automatically evaluated. Error information is electronically stored in at least one statistic file and is output.

  • Publication number: 20020057032
    Abstract: The invention relates to a stator for an electric motor, which stator is distinguished by a high space factor, a small winding overhang and a high level of automation for production purposes, there being provided an inner ring having pole shafts which project radially outwards and form first pole shafts for holding windings and second pole shafts which are disposed between the said first pole shafts, and an outer ring which can be connected, in a form-locking manner, to end-face regions of the pole shafts.
