  • Publication number: 20190319609
    Abstract: An output clock frequency of an adaptive oscillator circuit changes in response to noise on an integrated circuit power supply line. The circuit features two identical delay lines which are separately connected to a regulated supply and a droopy supply. In response to noise on the droopy supply, the delay lines cause a change in the output clock frequency. The adaptive oscillator circuit slows down the output clock frequency when the droopy supply droops or falls below the regulated supply. The adaptive oscillator circuit clamps the output clock frequency at a level determined by the regulated supply when the droopy supply overshoots or swings above the regulated supply.

  • Patent number: 10425089
    Abstract: A master/slave configuration of a frequency locked Loop (FLL) decouples the process, target voltage, temperature (PVT) tracking goals of locking the loop from adapting the clock frequency in response to voltage droops in the supply. A master oscillator circuit receives a regulated supply voltage and supplies a master oscillator signal. A control circuit supplies a master frequency control signal to control a frequency of the master oscillator signal to a target frequency. A slave oscillator circuit is coupled to a regulated supply voltage and a droopy supply voltage and supplies a slave oscillator signal having a frequency responsive to a slave frequency control signal that is based on the master frequency control signal. The frequency of the second oscillator signal is further responsive to a voltage change of the droopy supply voltage.

  • Publication number: 20190229736
    Abstract: An oscillator circuit is provided that adapts to voltage supply variations. The circuit first and second delays lines connected inputs of an edge detector, one delay line supplied by a reference voltage and the other with a drooping supply voltage. The edge detector generates an output clock based on a relationship between the inputs. The output clock applied to the signal inputs of the first and second delay lines. The output clock has a voltage dependent frequency performance curve with a slope dependent at least on the second delay line delay and a delay of the edge detector. At least one of the first delay line, the second delay line, and the edge detector delay are adjusted to change the slope of the performance curve.

  • Patent number: 10231377
    Abstract: A metering apparatus for distributing an agricultural product in a field has a meterbox configured for association with a hopper for receiving agricultural product from the hopper. A rotatable metering element is disposed within a chamber in the meterbox, and the rotating metering element is configured to deliver the agricultural product at a regulated rate from the hopper through the chamber to a product distribution line. Delivery of the agricultural product to the product distribution line may be selectively stopped by a disengagement structure for disengaging the agricultural product from the meter roller while the meter roller continues to rotate. The disengagement structure may comprise the meter roller moveable between a lowered product engaging position and a raised product disengaging position.

  • Patent number: 9470212
    Abstract: A flasher separates a geothermal fluid into steam and hot water. A steam turbine is driven by being supplied with the separated steam as a working medium. An evaporator is supplied with the steam from the steam turbine as a first heating medium, which is thereafter supplied to a first preheater via the evaporator. A superheater is supplied with the hot water separated by the flasher as a second heating medium, which is thereafter supplied to a second preheater via the superheater. A medium turbine is driven by being supplied, as a working medium, with a low-boiling-point medium having been heat-exchanged sequentially in the first preheater, the second preheater, the evaporator, and the superheater. In the evaporator and the first preheater, the low-boiling-point medium and the first heating medium are heat-exchanged. In the superheater and the second preheater, the low-boiling-point medium and the second heating medium are heat-exchanged.

  • Patent number: 9455722
    Abstract: In a method and apparatus for using a clock generating circuit to minimize settling time after dynamic power supply voltage ramping, a clock signal may be generated using a clock generating circuit having, among other things, open feedback loop switch logic and a dynamic fast lock control signal generator. Whereupon, when in operation, the open feedback loop switch logic is responsive to a controlled change in power supply voltage condition such that a feedback loop of the clock generating circuit is opened during power supply voltage ramping (e.g., during transitions to or from battery conservation modes). In response to opening the feedback loop, the dynamic fast lock control signal generator selectively applies a stabilizing control signal to a variable clock signal generator (e.g., a voltage controlled oscillator) such that the generated clock signal can quickly lock onto the proper target frequency.

  • Patent number: 9382815
    Abstract: A power generating system includes a flow dividing structure, a first detector, a flow dividing adjusting valve, a heat accumulator, a heat exchanger and a turbine. The flow dividing structure divides a first heat medium into a first flow path and a second flow path. The first detector detects a flow rate of the first heat medium. The flow dividing adjusting valve opens the second flow path when the flow rate of the first heat medium exceeds a predetermined value. The heat accumulator accumulates the first heat medium via the second flow path and delivers the first heat medium at a temporally leveled flow rate. The heat exchanger transfers heat from the first heat medium to a second heat medium having a lower boiling point than the first heat medium. The turbine rotationally moves by the second heat medium with heat having been transferred by the heat exchanging unit.
