  • Patent number: 11088105
    Abstract: A semiconductor device includes: a carrier having a die pad and a contact; a semiconductor die having opposing first and second main sides and being attached to the die pad by a first solder joint such that the second main side faces the die pad; and a contact clip having a first contact region and a second contact region. The first contact is attached to the first main side by a second solder joint. The second contact region is attached to the contact by a third solder joint. The first contact region has a convex shape facing towards the first main side such that a distance between the first main side and the first contact region increases from a base of the convex shape towards an edge of the first contact region. The base runs along a line that is substantially perpendicular to a longitudinal axis of the contact clip.

  • Patent number: 11001160
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to an electrically operated vehicle having an electrical charging cable, by which a vehicle-side accumulator is chargeable by a vehicle-external power supply network in a charging procedure, wherein the charging cable can be unplugged from a vehicle-side terminal at least after completion of the charging procedure, in particular independently and without locking. According to the disclosure, the vehicle and/or the charging cable has a check function, which enables a charging cable usage if a usage authorization is present and blocks the charging cable usage if a usage authorization is not present.

  • Patent number: 10960246
    Abstract: A method for responding to a fire-critical battery state in a motor vehicle having at least one battery, and a motor vehicle designed to carry out such a method. A battery temperature of the at least one battery of the motor vehicle is continuously detected by at least one temperature sensor. The method includes the following steps: Continuous detection of a temperature change in the battery based on the continuously detected battery temperature; verifying whether the detected temperature change exceeds a specified threshold defining a fire-critical battery state; and activating at least one vehicle function in order to perform a protective and/or warning measure by a control unit, if the fire-critical battery state is reached.

  • Patent number: 10605269
    Abstract: A fan has an impeller (20) that is equipped with blades (26, 28, 30, 32, 34; 58). The blades are configured so that the blade loading of individual blades differs during operation. As a result of this variable blade loading, the frequencies associated with the blade-passing noise (BPF) of the fan can be distributed over a broader frequency spectrum, and thus have a less obtrusive effect.
