  • Patent number: 10537030
    Abstract: Methods are provided for controlling voiding caused by gasses in solder joints of electronic assemblies. In various embodiments, a preform can be embedded into the solder paste prior to the component placement. The solder preform can be configured with a geometry such that it creates a standoff, or gap, between the components to be mounted in the solder paste. The method includes receiving a printed circuit board comprising a plurality of contact pads; depositing a volume of solder paste onto each of the plurality of contact pads; depositing a solder preform into each volume of solder paste; placing electronic components onto the printed circuit board such that contacts of the electronic components are aligned with corresponding contact pads of the printed circuit board; and reflow soldering the electronic components to the printed circuit board.

  • Patent number: 10467589
    Abstract: Systems and methods for profiled and focused searching of litigation information allow a user to access specific legal information for use during litigation. The user can connect to a web site and access particular information from multiple sources based on the litigation task the user wishes to accomplish One litigation task is to create a litigation profile for a target, such as a particular litigant, attorney, judge, court, or firm. In this way, the user can perform focused and task-based searching to receive information about particular filings in particular locations, made by particular entities without knowing which sources contain certain pieces of the litigation information. For example, the user can receive all documents relating to summary judgment for patent infringement filed by a particular attorney in a particular court without specifying the source of information. In one aspect, the user can also access the source(s) upon receiving the results.

  • Publication number: 20180036662
    Abstract: A rake classifier assembly including an elongate rake member reciprocally movable up an inclined surface to move solid material thereup is described. A pair of guide arrangements are provided each with a pivotally mounted elongate guide track along which respective wheels connected to the elongate rake member are movable. The guide tracks are selectively movable between first and second alignments, with the guide tracks extending substantially parallel to the inclined surface in the first alignment such that the elongate rake member can be moved up the inclined surface moving solid materials thereup, and in the second alignment the guide tracks diverge downwardly away from the inclined surface, such that as the elongate rake member is moved downwardly the elongate rake member also moves away from the inclined surface.

  • Publication number: 20170324102
    Abstract: A fuel cell system comprises a fuel cell having an anode flow path extending through the fuel cell between an anode inlet and an anode outlet, and a cathode flow path extending through the fuel cell between a cathode inlet and a cathode outlet. An anode purge valve is coupled to the anode outlet and has an outlet coupled to the cathode inlet. A purge valve controller is configured to effect a purge cycle by opening and closing the anode purge valve and to monitor a fuel cell voltage profile during the purge cycle to determine an operational state of the anode purge valve. A fuel cell voltage drop during a period following a command signal instructing opening of the anode purge valve is used to indicate successful start of a purge cycle. A fuel cell voltage rise during a period following a command signal instructing closing of the anode purge valve is used to indicate a successful end to a purge cycle.

  • Patent number: 9599489
    Abstract: A fiber-optic sensor array (100) comprises a line array of fiber-optic sensor packages (AX, BX, CX, DX, AY, BY, CY, DY, AZ, BZ, CZ, DZ) each having a package input/output (i/o) fiber and each being arranged to output a finite output pulse series of optical output pulses via the package i/o fiber in response to input thereto of one or more interrogating optical pulses. The array further comprises a fiber-optic bus (104,106, 108, 110) extending along the length of the line array, each package i/o fiber being optically coupled to the fiber-optic bus at a respective positions along the line array. The array allows interrogation at a higher frequency than is the case for a serial array of the same number of fiber-optic sensing packages.

  • Patent number: 8797824
    Abstract: A method of sensing using a phase based transducer in which a transducer response is provided at multiple different levels of sensitivity. The different levels of sensitivity are used to produce an output which does not overscale across a wide range of signal levels. This is particularly useful for use in conjunction with multiplexed arrays of fiber optic sensors for seismic surveying. Methods of sensor calibration and noise reduction are also described.
