  • Patent number: 10497390
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide methods and systems for correcting a transient phase error induced while recording on a magnetic recording medium. An input signal is received and is distributed to a plurality of sinc filters. A respective phase-shifted signal is generated at each of the plurality of sinc filters by adding a corresponding predetermined amount of phase to the received signals. A respective score is assigned to each of the generated phase-shifted signals. The generated phase-shifted signal having the highest score is selected as the phase-corrected signal to compensate for the transient phase error induced while recording on the magnetic recording medium.

  • Patent number: 10072425
    Abstract: An improved handrail splice for use in coupling cylindrical handrail components comprises a generally cylindrical splice having a scalloped outer surface defining a plurality of first and second grooves, with the first grooves being characterized as large grooves circumferentially spaced along the outer surface and a plurality of smaller second grooves disposed between the first grooves. The large grooves are sized to receive and maintain a quantity of adhesive therein to ensure a secure adhesive connection between exterior of the tubular splice and the interior handrail surface. The smaller second grooves receive a smaller quantity of adhesive and further function to anchor the splice relative to the hand rail sections by press-fit engagement. A longitudinal slit bounded by a pair of projecting tabs allows for the temporary reduction of the splice to facilitate inserted installation of the splice within a tubular hand rail component.
