  • Patent number: 10671400
    Abstract: A system includes a processor configured to: initiate atomic execution of a plurality of instruction units in a thread, starting with a beginning instruction unit in the plurality of instruction units, wherein the plurality of instruction units in the thread are not programmatically specified to be executed atomically, and wherein the plurality of instruction units includes one or more memory modification instructions; in response to executing an instruction to commit inserted into the plurality of instructions units, incrementally commit a portion of the one or more memory modification instructions that have been atomically executed so far; and subsequent to incrementally committing the portion of the memory modification instructions that have been atomically executed so far, continue atomic execution of the plurality of instruction units. The system further includes a memory coupled to the processor, configured to provide the processor with the plurality of instruction units.

  • Publication number: 20200145084
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) may monitor multiple beam pair links (BPLs) including a first BPL currently used by the UE to communicate with a network node (e.g., a base station), and a second BPL. The first BPL comprises a first network beam and a first UE beam, and the second BPL comprises a second network beam and a second UE beam. The UE may decide to switch beams from using the first BPL to using the second BPL based on signaling from the network node or autonomously. When the beam switch is made, the UE switches uplink (UL) transmission from over the first UE beam to over the second UE beam. After the beam switch is made, the UE transmits in the UL over the second UE beam using UL timing adjusted based on the first and second propagation delays.

  • Publication number: 20200122341
    Abstract: A method of separating a blank from a stack of blanks is provided and includes grasping a first blank and moving the first blank away from a plurality of blanks. At least one additional blank from the plurality of blanks is adhered to the first blank to form a sub-stack of blanks and at least one impulse electrically generated force (EGF) is applied to separate the at least one additional blank from the first blank. The first blank may be grasped by a device with a force F1, and the at least one impulse EGF may be less than the force F1. Also, the at least one impulse EGF may be applied to separate the at least one additional blank from the first blank by passing a pulse of current through an EGF generator positioned adjacent the first blank and inducing an EGF within the plurality of blanks.

  • Publication number: 20200127542
    Abstract: A squirrel cage rotor, is made up of a shaft, a rotor laminated core with rotor bars which are arranged in the interior, and short-circuiting rings with clearances through which the bar ends of the rotor bars extend out of the rotor laminated core. The rotor bars, on their surface, at least partially have an electrical insulation layer, wherein the electrical insulation layer is cohesively connected only to the surface of the rotor bars. The squirrel cage rotor is intended, in particular, for use in an asynchronous machine.

  • Patent number: 10598486
    Abstract: Improving an estimated altitude of a receiver by mitigating the effects of transmitter heating. Systems and methods for improving estimates of a receiver's altitude determine a reference pressure at a reference altitude using a temperature measured at a transmitter or another temperature value, an altitude of the transmitter, and a pressure measured by the transmitter or another pressure value. A local reference pressure for a receiver is determined using the reference pressure and other reference pressures from other transmitters. Reference pressures from overheating transmitters may be weighted less than reference pressures from other transmitters when determining the local reference pressure. The local reference pressure is then used to estimate the altitude of the receiver.

  • Publication number: 20200088517
    Abstract: Calibrating an unstable sensor of a mobile device. Systems and methods for calibrating a sensor of a mobile device determine a first estimated position of the mobile device without using any measurement from the sensor of the mobile device, generate a second estimated position of the mobile device using a measurement from the sensor, estimate a sensor error of the sensor using the first estimated position and the second estimated position, and use the sensor error to determine a calibration value for adjusting one or more measurements from the sensor.

  • Patent number: 10591898
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments relate to methods, mediums, and systems for associating information, including critical-to-quality (CTQ) information such as minimum or maximum part dimensions, with parts in a three-dimensional model of a product. The information may be identified by performing a failure mode effect analysis (FMEA) against the model. The information is stored with the model data (e.g., in the form of an annotation applied to a model feature corresponding to the part in question). The model data may be consulted by product lifecycle management (PLM) applications during various phases of the product's lifecycle. Among other possibilities, the information may be used to automatically generate regulatory compliance documentation, to ensure product quality standards are met during a manufacturing process, or to perform postproduction quality monitoring of the product.
