  • Publication number: 20130206168
    Abstract: One aspect of the present invention includes an apparatus for scrubbing substrates such as a roller scrubber. According to one embodiment, the apparatus comprises a scrubbing medium having an axial bore and a mandrel having a section disposed through the axial bore of the scrubbing medium. The mandrel is configured so that it exerts an adjustable axial compression on the scrubbing medium. According to another embodiment, the apparatus comprises a roller scrubber. The roller scrubber comprises a scrubbing medium comprising a plurality of discrete disks having a center hole. The disks are disposed side by side so that the center holes form an axial bore in the scrubbing medium. The combined outer edges of the plurality of disks form a scrubbing surface of the roller scrubber.

  • Publication number: 20130144712
    Abstract: Through the utilization of group delivery, group counting and group pacing, an ad serving platform treats a grouping of ads as a standard unit despite the multiple ad unit components. The ad server platform paces and manages the flight of that grouped set of ads as a single entity. The ad server platform guarantees quality of delivery by only counting a qualified impression event when the group delivery has been successful, thereby opening this type of highly impactful advertising experience up to non-standard inventory sources, rather than relying on highly controlled content environments.

  • Publication number: 20130132212
    Abstract: An ad serving platform utilizes real time dynamic page awareness for ad serving. For every new digital content URL, the ad serving platform reviews the layout and relative position of ad placements in a content environment and stores a “map” of this information, which is accessible to the ad server in real time for use in ad selection, and is refreshed periodically (e.g., every three minutes) to account for changes. As a result, without control of the page, the ad server platform can make complex serving decisions based upon relative page position of advertising placements.

  • Publication number: 20120181863
    Abstract: Methods and systems for supplying power to multiple voltage islands using a single supply source are disclosed. Aspects of one method may include providing power to a first of a plurality of voltage islands, and individually controlling providing of power to each of a remaining portion of the plurality of voltage islands. For example, when an electronic system is first powered on, a low current voltage source may be used to supply power to a primary voltage island. As a higher current voltage source becomes available, power derived from the higher current voltage source may be provided to the primary voltage island and to secondary voltage islands. Power to each of the secondary voltage islands may be, for example, individually controlled via a power MOS transistor. The power MOS transistor may also be configured to allow a faster blocking time than unblocking time.

  • Publication number: 20100048378
    Abstract: A transparent yttrium aluminum garnet precursor composition is provided that includes a plurality of calcined particles of yttrium aluminum oxide having a mean particle domain size of between 10 and 200 nanometers and a predominant hexagonal crystal structure. High levels of YAG transparency are obtained for large YAG articles through control of the aluminum:yttrium atomic ratio to 1:06±0.001 and limiting impurity loadings to less than 100 ppm. The composition is calcined at a temperature between 700° Celsius and 900° Celsius to remove organic additives to yield a predominant metastable hexagonal phase yttrium aluminum oxide nanoparticulate having an atomic ratio of aluminum: yttrium of 1:0.6±0.001.
