  • Patent number: 10644453
    Abstract: A backplane connector includes a shielded design that has wafers with signal terminals supported as edge-coupled terminal pairs for differential signaling. A ground shield is mounted on each wafer and provides a U-channel that partially shields each terminal pair. The wafers omit a ground terminal between adjacent terminal pairs. An insert can be provided to help connect the ground shield to a U-shield to provide U-shaped shielding structure substantially the entire way from a tail to a contact.

  • Patent number: 10609473
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to speakers and more specifically to an array speaker for distributing music uniformly across a room. A number of audio drivers can be radially distributed within a speaker housing so that an output of the drivers is distributed evenly throughout the room. In some embodiments, the exit geometry of the audio drivers can be configured to bounce off a surface supporting the array speaker to improve the distribution of music throughout the room. The array speaker can include a number of vibration isolation elements distributed within a housing of the array speaker. The vibration isolation elements can be configured to reduce the strength of forces generated by a subwoofer of the array speaker.

  • Patent number: 10568048
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for uplink sounding reference signals (SRS) transmissions are disclosed. A WTRU-specific configuration of WTRU-specific SRS subframes for performing SRS transmissions is received. A trigger is received in a subframe from a base station to transmit a first SRS. A first subframe is selected after the subframe in which the trigger is received which is both a WTRU-specific subframe and at least four subframes after the subframe in which the trigger is received. A determination if a maximum power is exceeded in a symbol in the selected first subframe is made. On a condition that the maximum power is not exceeded in the symbol in the selected first subframe, the first SRS is transmitted in the selected first subframe.
