  • Patent number: 10345889
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a processor includes multiple cores and a power controller. The power controller may include a hardware duty cycle (HDC) logic to cause at least one logical processor of one of the cores to enter into a forced idle state even though the logical processor has a workload to execute. In addition, the HDC logic may cause the logical processor to exit the forced idle state prior to an end of an idle period if at least one other logical processor is prevented from entry into the forced idle state. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20180283191
    Abstract: A computer-based method of designing a guide vane formation is provided. The vane formation is for use in a gas turbine engine which has a cascade of circumferentially arranged identical guide vane formations. The vane formation has radially inner and radially outer chordal seals. The method allows the elimination of “saw-tooth” leakage gaps between inner chordal seals of neighbouring vane formations and between outer chordal seals of neighbouring vane formations even when the inner and outer chordal seals are axially offset from each other.

  • Patent number: 8807333
    Abstract: A tablet case with a cover, the tablet case comprising a housing having three upstanding walls, at least one of the three upstanding walls having a flange, the housing being adapted to receive and retain a tablet. The tablet case further comprises a cover having a substantially rectangular foldable planar member and an elongated member which extends from the cover into an indentation on the inside of the housing. A section of the elongated member is secured to the indentation to form a substantially planar surface arranged to abut the rear wall of a tablet. First and second magnetic means are provided on the housing and cover respectively to allow the cover to be folded into a stand and secured to the housing or to allow the cover to simply shield a tablet screen.

  • Publication number: 20070285304
    Abstract: The gas blast from a directed rocket motor transfers an impulse vector to a space target object thereby altering the target's orbit. Preceding the gas blast, a lower level of rocket exhaust may be directed to the target object for profile imaging that may include center of gravity determination using a pulse Doppler radar sighted along the exhaust stream. A deflector may be deployed to redirect a portion of the gas blast. In some cases, a special non-shrapnel nosecone warhead may be substituted for or used in conjunction with the rocket motor as a source of a gas blast.

  • Patent number: 6544347
    Abstract: A vortex ring is used to produce a flow of fluid through a flexible tube, to remove surface deposits from a surface, and to transfer heat from a platen to a ring vortex. In pumping a fluid through a flexible conduit or tube, a vortex ring is launched along the tube so that the vortex ring encircles the tube. The vortex ring compresses and expands the flexible tube utilizing a high circumferential pressure formed at the bow of the vortex ring and a low pressure at the wake of the vortex ring. In removing deposits from a surface, a vortex ring launched along the surface mechanically abrades the surface and fractures the adhesion bonds of the surface deposits. In transferring heat from a heated surface to a vortex ring, the vortex ring removes the heat from the surface of the heated platen by forced convection.

  • Publication number: 20030029476
    Abstract: Several methods are presented for extracting useful work from a ring-vortex moving at high angular and axial velocities. The key components are a ring-vortex generator or launcher, a platen that penetrates the ring-vortex centroid along the axis of revolution, and a collector. Typical applications that utilize different parameters of a ring-vortex include a pump, filter, and heat exchanger.

  • Patent number: 6185197
    Abstract: A communications protocol interface is arranged at a central station of a telecommunications network and is responsive to a control message received from a network controller in accordance with a first message protocol to transmit the control message in accordance with a second message protocol to subscriber stations and is responsive to a control message received in accordance with the second message protocol to transmit the control message to the network controller in accordance with the first message protocol. The first message protocol is a balanced protocol with the communications protocol converter or the network controller able to initiate an exchange of information. The second message protocol is a master-slave protocol with the communications protocol interface acting as master. The second control message protocol operates over central station bus for communicating with at least one network element in the central station.

  • Patent number: 6175560
    Abstract: A wireless telecommunications systems (1) includes a central terminal (10) for transmitting and receiving radio frequency signals to and from a subscriber terminal (20). A downlink communication path is established from a transmitter (200) of the central terminal (10) to a receiver (202) of the subscriber terminal (20). A downlink signal (212) is transmitted from the transmitter (200) to the receiver (202) during setup and operation of the wireless telecommunications system (1). The receiver (202) of the subscriber terminal (20) compares a code and phase of a master code sequence that includes an orthogonal code in the downlink signal (212) to a code and phase of a slave code sequence of the receiver (202). The receiver (202) adjusts the phase of the slave code sequence until a match is obtained with the master code sequence.
