  • Patent number: 8949650
    Abstract: A computer system encompasses a processor (11) including a control unit (111) and an ALU (112) configured to execute arithmetic and logic operations synchronized with the clock signal, and a marching main memory (31), which embraces an array of memory units, configured to store information in each of memory units and to transfer synchronously with the clock signal, providing the processor (11) with the stored information actively and sequentially so that the ALU (112) can execute the arithmetic and logic operations with the stored information. The results of the processing in the ALU (112) are sent out to the marching main memory (31), but there is only one way of instructions flow from the marching main memory (31) to the processor.

  • Patent number: 8920546
    Abstract: A system and method recover water from an ambient airstream. Dehumidification of the airstream is also achieved by removal of the water. A device of the system includes a chamber having a group of trays that hold respective amounts of liquid desiccant in each tray. A foam media absorbs the desiccant to increase an exposed surface of the desiccant to the airstream. Fans and valves are used to control airflow through the device. A charge cycle circulates air through the device to remove water vapor from the airstream. A subsequent extraction cycle removes water collected in the liquid desiccant by a condenser communicating with the chamber. An integral heat exchanger adds heat to the chamber during the extraction cycle. A controller is used to integrate and manage all system functions and input variables to achieve a high efficiency of operational energy use for water collection.

  • Publication number: 20140344544
    Abstract: A marching memory is disclosed having an array of memory units. Each memory unit has a sequence of bit level cells. Each bit-level cell has a transfer-transistor having a first main-electrode connected to a clock signal supply line through a first delay element, and a control-electrode connected to an output terminal of a first neighboring bit-level cell positioned at an input side of the array of the memory units, through a second delay element. Each bit-level cell also has a reset-transistor having a first main-electrode connected to a second main-electrode of the transfer-transistor, a control-electrode connected to the clock signal supply line, and a second main-electrode connected to the ground potential. Each bit-level cell also has a capacitor connected in parallel with the reset-transistor.

  • Publication number: 20140266012
    Abstract: Methods and devices for connecting a mobile device with different data storage devices located either locally or remotely are provided. The device may apply one or more rules to create a hierarchical virtualization of the several data storage devices. The virtualization may then be provided to the user as a single, hierarchical file system. Further, a monitoring system may monitor the file system to determine if any new applications have been installed or if applications are currently being executed. If a connection is made to a secure network, the system may provide the information derived from the monitoring to the secure network. The secure network can then analyze the information to determine if any of the applications should be uninstalled from the device or should be stopped while the device is connected to the network.
