  • Patent number: 11665567
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for adapting measurement reporting in a wireless communication network (10) employing carrier aggregation. In order to reduce beam link failures, the UE (200, 500) is configured to adapt measurement reporting for a serving cell (20) depending on a beam link quality of one or more serving downlink beams in the serving cell (20). For example, measurement reporting can be adapted by modifying a reporting frequency at which measurements for one or more downlink beams are sent, by varying a number of non-serving downlink beams for which measurements are sent, or both.

  • Patent number: 11644912
    Abstract: An interface device includes an on-panel pad and a sensor controller. The interface device is used to perform an input to an electronic device in response to an operation by a user on a capacitive touch panel display of the electronic device. The on-panel pad causes sensor electrodes included in the touch panel display to generate a two-dimensional pattern of capacitance while the on-panel pad is on the touch panel display. When the two-dimensional pattern generated while the on-panel pad is on the touch panel display has been detected, the sensor controller generates or outputs data including operation information in response to a change in capacitance in a region that is associated with the two-dimensional pattern and that receives an operation of the on-panel pad, the operation information indicating an operation state of the on-panel pad.

    Abstract: A vapor chamber with structure for enhancing two-phase flow boiling includes a main body formed of a first and a second plate member, which are correspondingly closed to each other to define an airtight chamber between them. The airtight chamber has a condensing side and an evaporating side and has a working fluid filled therein. The evaporating side is formed on its surface with a plurality of projected sections and a plurality of recessed sections and has a wick structure provided thereon. The projected sections extend through and project beyond the wick structure, and the recessed sections are located below the wick structure without being filled by the wick structure to thereby form spaces for receiving the working fluid. The provision of the projected and the recessed sections enables the vapor chamber to provide largely enhanced two-phase flow boiling effect in the airtight chamber.
