  • Patent number: 10729002
    Abstract: Techniques and mechanisms for mitigating signal deterioration in communications between two circuit boards. In an embodiment, a packaged device accommodates coupling to a first circuit board which, in turn, accommodates connection to a second circuit board. In one such embodiment, an amplifier circuit of the packaged device includes an amplifier circuit which comprises a variable resistor and an active circuit element coupled thereto. The device receives via one of the circuit boards a control signal and a voltage which configure the amplifier circuit to provide an impedance matching for communication between the circuit boards. In another embodiment, the device comprises multiple common gate amplifiers which are variously configurable each to provide a respective impedance matching for communications between a motherboard and a dual in-line memory module.

  • Publication number: 20190171646
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for generating answers to questions. In one embodiment, the method comprises receiving a query, conducting a search through one or more data sources to identify candidate answers to the query, and providing each of the candidate answers with a preliminary score. The method further comprises filtering out any of the candidate answers with a preliminary score that does not satisfy a defined condition. The candidate answers having preliminary scores that satisfy this condition form a subset of the candidate answers. Each of the candidate answers in this subset is processed to produce further scores. A ranking function is applied to these further scores to determine a ranking for each of the candidate answers in the subset; and after this ranking function is applied, one or more of the candidate answers are selected as one or more final answers to the query.

A first aerodynamic surface is between the leading and trailing edges and a second surface is between the leading and trailing edges. The leading edge is formed by a nose, the nose having a hinge axis about which the control surface is deflectable. A maximum thickness of the control surface perpendicular to the chord-line between the first aerodynamic surface and the second surface is located aft of the hinge axis. The present application also relates to a control surface for an aircraft having a maximum curvature of the first aerodynamic surface of the control surface located aft of the hinge axis. The present application also relates to an aircraft or part of an aircraft comprising a fixed section and a control surface.
