  • Patent number: 11319058
    Abstract: A system for controlling an electromechanical actuator of an aircraft includes a locking device configured to mechanically lock said actuator in a first fixed position and to mechanically unlock said actuator from said first fixed position and a controller configured to be in bi-directional communication with both said locking device and said actuator. The controller is configured to monitor a position of said actuator during flight and to detect when said actuator has not moved for a set amount of time, said controller further being configured to instruct said locking device to lock said actuator in said first, locked position when said set time has been reached. In addition, there is provided a method for controlling the thermal properties of an electromechanical actuator of an aircraft.

  • Publication number: 20210104457
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a carrier substrate with an electronic IC chip mounted on top of the carrier substrate. An encapsulation block on top of the front face of the carrier substrate embeds the IC chip. The encapsulation block has a through-void for positioning and confinement that extends through the encapsulation block to the top of the carrier substrate. At least one electronic component is positioned within the through-void and mounted to the top of the carrier substrate. Solder bumps or pads are located within the through-void to electrically connect the at least one electronic component to the carrier substrate.

  • Publication number: 20200335466
    Abstract: A bumping matrix includes many bumps, wherein each bump is rotationally asymmetric in a plane of the bumping matrix. The bumps are orientated in a centripetal arrangement. Bumps in a first portion of the bumping matrix have a first pitch in a first axis and bumps in a second portion of the bumping matrix have a second pitch in the first axis. The second pitch is different from the first pitch. Bumps have an oblong shape with a longer diameter and a shorter diameter. The centripetal arrangement orients the longer diameter of the bumps is a direction radially extending from a center of the bumping matrix.
