  • Patent number: 10705192
    Abstract: Optoelectronic modules (100) are operable to distinguish between signals indicative of reflections from an object of interest and signals indicative of a spurious reflection. Various modules are operable to recognize spurious reflections by means of dedicated spurious-reflection detection pixels (126) and, in some cases, also to compensate for errors caused by spurious reflections.

  • Publication number: 20160150976
    Abstract: Exemplary of the present disclosure can include an apparatus for generating thermal imaging information of a biological structure(s), including detector arrangement(s) which can be configured to receive and detect light radiation(s), a determination arrangement(s) which can be configured to determine a position or an orientation of the detector arrangement(s) with respect to the biological structure(s) to generate data, and a computer arrangement configured to generate the thermal imaging information based on the radiation and the data when the detector arrangement(s) is moved. The thermal imaging information can include a 2-dimension temperature map(s) of a portion(s) of the biological structure(s).

  • Patent number: 6857462
    Abstract: A high pressure die casting method including providing first and second accumulator assemblies, wherein the first accumulator assembly provides pressurized fluid toad die assembly while the second accumulator assembly provides pressurized fluid to remaining portions of the die casting machine. A barrel insert loader inserts cylinder barrels into the die assembly, and then the dies are closed to permit molten aluminum to be injected therein and thereby form the cast engine block. The dies include side gates and sub-gates through which molten aluminum is introduced into the mold. The dies are opened, and the cast engine is removed from the dies by operation of a robot arm, and a die spraying assembly is inserted between the open dies and sequentially sprays the dies, to clean and cool the dies in preparation for a subsequent casting operation.

  • Patent number: 6373238
    Abstract: A measurement system includes a first transformer enclosed within a first housing and magnetically linked to a first cable where the first transformer senses changing current within the first cable and in response produces a first output voltage. A second transformer is enclosed within a second housing and magnetically linked to a second cable where the second transformer senses changing current within the second cable and in response produces a second output voltage. A third transformer is enclosed within a third housing and magnetically linked to a third cable where third transformer senses a changing current within the third cable and in response produces a third output voltage.

  • Patent number: 5787457
    Abstract: A cached synchronous dynamic random access memory (cached SDRAM) device having a multi-bank architecture includes a synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM) bank including a row decoder coupled to a memory bank array for selecting a row of data in the memory bank array, sense amplifiers coupled to the memory bank array via bit lines for latching the row of data selected by the row decoder, and a synchronous column select means for selecting a desired column of the row of data. A randomly addressable row register stores a row of data latched by the sense amplifiers. A select logic gating means, disposed between the sense amplifiers and the row register, selectively gates the row of data present on the bit lines to the row register in accordance to particular synchronous memory operations of the cached SDRAM being performed. Data to be input into the cached SDRAM during a Write operation is received by the sense amplifiers and written into the memory bank array.
