  • Patent number: 10644731
    Abstract: Transmitter noise cancellation may be applied on a channel by channel basis to active channels of an incoming radio frequency signal received at a receiver. A noise cancellation filter may be provided for each active channel in a predetermined signal band. Applying noise cancellation on a per active channel basis instead of to the entire receive band may substantially reduce the filtering requirement and number of filter coefficients or taps to save power and reduce manufacturing costs. Channelized transmitter noise cancellers, multi transmitter-receiver cross coupling cancellers, and hybrid full signal band and channelized transmitter noise cancellers are also provided.

  • Patent number: 7946667
    Abstract: A dampened drawer within a drawer frame includes frame and drawer slide rails cooperating together with the drawer supported in the frame for longitudinal sliding movement of the drawer slide rail with respect of the frame slide rail. A first strip of material is attached to the frame slide rail and a second strip of material is attached to the drawer slide rail with the strips contacting each other in frictional engagement. The frictional engagement is determined so as to prevent longitudinal sliding movement of the drawer slide rail with respect to the frame slide rail when a force less than a predetermined force is applied to the drawer in any position of the drawer with respect to the frame over the entire range of longitudinal sliding movement of the drawer slide rail with respect to the frame slide rail.

  • Patent number: 4350629
    Abstract: This invention relates to crosslinked collagen and glycosaminoglycan materials, and to procedures for preparing such materials. It has been discovered that if collagen fibrils in an aqueous acidic solution are contacted with a crosslinking agent before being contacted with glycosaminoglycan, the materials produced have extremely low levels of thrombogenicity. Such materials are well suited for in-dwelling catheters, blood vessel grafts, and other devices that are in continuous contact with blood for long periods of time.
