  • Patent number: 11262626
    Abstract: This disclosure provides connectors for smart windows. A smart window may incorporate an optically switchable pane. In one aspect, a window unit includes an insulated glass unit including an optically switchable pane. A wire assembly may be attached to the edge of the insulated glass unit and may include wires in electrical communication with electrodes of the optically switchable pane. A floating connector may be attached to a distal end of the wire assembly. The floating connector may include a flange and a nose, with two holes in the flange for affixing the floating connector to a first frame. The nose may include a terminal face that present two exposed contacts of opposite polarity. Pre-wired spacers improve fabrication efficiency and seal integrity of insulated glass units. Electrical connection systems include those embedded in the secondary seal of the insulated glass unit.

  • Publication number: 20100077856
    Abstract: An inertial measurement unit (IMU) includes an assembly including a plurality of gyroscopes. Each gyroscope has an associated motor bias control loop gain setting. The IMU further includes an electronic device in signal communication with the gyroscopes. The device is configured to set the loop gain setting of a first gyroscope of the plurality to a first value to commence a startup time period of operation of the first gyroscope. The device is further configured to set the loop gain setting of the first gyroscope to a second value to commence a normal time period of operation of the first gyroscope.

  • Patent number: 6216192
    Abstract: A system and method to permit access requests from a mezzanine bus through different bridges to perform in similar ways in disclosed. The access requests are serviced even if the bridges are configured differently, therefore allowing hardware and software management by allowing software to treat peripheral devices attached to different types of bridges as similar devices. Features of the peripheral devices, therefore, can be more effectively and more fully accessed by evading limitations of the addressing mode for one or more of the bridges.
