  • Patent number: 10197033
    Abstract: A fuel-injection device has a low-noise and pivotable structure. The fuel-injection device includes at least a fuel injector and a receiving bore in a cylinder head for the fuel-injector, and a decoupling element between a valve housing of the fuel injector and a wall of the receiving bore. The decoupling element is captively situated on the fuel injector prior to its installation in the receiving bore in that a securing ring is mounted below the decoupling element at the outer periphery of the fuel injector and the securing ring is a closed plastic ring. The fuel-injection device is particularly suited for the direct injection of fuel into a combustion chamber of a mixture-compressing internal combustion engine having externally supplied ignition.

  • Patent number: 9840996
    Abstract: A method for installing a sealing ring in a ring groove of an injector, in particular a fuel injector, in which the diameter of the sealing ring is enlarged with the aid of an enlarging tool and is inserted into the ring groove, and the enlarged sealing ring accommodated in the ring groove is reshaped to a predefined sealing dimension with the aid of a calibration tool. For the purpose of shifting a residual ring gap remaining in the ring groove during the reshaping process to the groove flank of the ring groove facing away from the combustion chamber, the reshaping process of the sealing ring is carried out by removing the calibration tool from the fuel injector.

  • Patent number: 9595871
    Abstract: Disclosed examples include high-efficiency integrated circuits and inductive capacitive DC-DC converters with a first converter stage including first and second switches and an inductor, and a second converter stage including third and fourth switches and a flying capacitor. A dual mode control circuit regulates output voltage signal in a first mode when the output voltage signal is below a threshold by pulse width modulating the switches of the first converter stage. When the output voltage exceeds the threshold, the control circuit operates in a second mode with a first state to close the first and third switches, and a second state to close the fourth switch to connect the inductor in series with the flying capacitor. Dual mode operation of the first and second stages facilitates buck-boost operation with reduced inductor losses and converter switching losses, and the integrated circuit can be used in boost, buck or other configurations.

  • Patent number: 8310434
    Abstract: Generally, displays, like liquid crystal displays (LCDs), use a DC-free addressing voltage in order to prevent decomposition of the display. Here, an integrated circuit (IC) is provided that compensates for temperature dependencies. This IC typically uses a thermistor or temperature varying element to measure the temperature of the display and adjusts the common reference voltage in response to the measured temperature.
