  • Patent number: 10148231
    Abstract: An apparatus includes an RF power amplifier with a controller and an impedance matching network. The RF power amplifier is configured to drive a load in electrical communication with the RF power amplifier. The impedance matching network is located electrically between the RF power amplifier and the load. The impedance matching network is configured to match an output impedance of the RF power amplifier and an impedance of the load. The impedance matching network includes a set of fixed value impedance matching circuits configured to provide different discrete values. The RF amplifier includes a variable DC power supply powering RF transistors to result in a variable output impedance for the amplifier. The controller selects an impedance matching circuit of the capacitor presets and/or the right setting for the variable DC supply that result in minimum reflected power to match the output impedance of the amplifier to the output load impedance.

  • Publication number: 20180140353
    Abstract: Bipolar electrosurgical forceps are provided with dual irrigating tubes that deliver irrigating liquid to the opposed surfaces of the tips of the forceps to prevent the sticking of body tissue to the tips. To reduce the manufacturing costs of the forceps and enable the forceps to be single use, disposable forceps, each tube of the dual irrigating tools is a plastic tube adhered along one of the opposing surfaces of the pair of forceps arms. Each tube also has a flat nozzle at the distal end of the tube that disburses irrigating liquid across the opposed surfaces of the forceps arm distal and tips.

  • Publication number: 20180138717
    Abstract: One or more techniques and/or systems are provided for transferring power and/or information between a stator and a rotor. The rotor includes a high voltage rectifier filter and an auxiliary regulator coupled to a power transfer apparatus (e.g., rotary transformer). The high voltage rectifier filter is configured to receive a first electrical signal, associated with a first voltage, from the power transfer apparatus and to generate a second electrical signal, associated with a second voltage, based on a frequency and/or an amplitude of the first electrical signal. The auxiliary regulator is configured to generate a third electrical signal based on the first electrical signal, where a third voltage associated with the third electrical signal is generated independent of the frequency and/or amplitude of the first electrical signal. A single bi-directional data link is used for control and/or communication between the stator and the rotor.

  • Patent number: 9592074
    Abstract: A microsurgical instrument has a pair of operative surgical surfaces that are moved relative to each other in shearing or grasping procedures performed by the instrument. The instrument has a handle containing an elongate center rod with a ring mounted for reciprocating movement on the rod. A tube is secured to the ring and a shaft extends through the tube and is secured to the rod. The handle also includes a plurality of resilient arms that extend along the length of the rod and engage against a sliding surface of the ring on the rod. The plurality of actuator arms are alternatively manually compressed radially inwardly by the surgeon's hand and released by the surgeon's hand to allow the arms to flex radially inwardly and outwardly. The inward and outward movement of the plurality of arms reciprocates the ring on the handle rod and causes the tube and shaft to move axially relative to each other.

  • Patent number: 9008275
    Abstract: Among other things, one or more techniques and/or systems are provided for varying a voltage applied to a radiation source of an imaging modality to vary an energy of emitted radiation. A power supply comprises at least two rectifiers, with a first rectifier being electrically separated from a second rectifier via a switching component. When the switching component is opened, the first and second rectifiers are effectively arranged in parallel, and when the switching component is closed, the first and second rectifiers are effectively arranged in series. The voltage applied by the power supply may be different based upon whether the rectifiers are arranged in parallel or in series, but the power output by the power supply may remain substantially constant regardless of the rectifier arrangement.
