  • Patent number: 11115125
    Abstract: Various embodiments of a monolithic transceiver are described, which may be fabricated on a semiconductor substrate. The monolithic transceiver includes a coherent receiver module (CRM), a coherent transmitter module (CTM), and a local oscillation splitter to feed a local oscillation to the CRM and the CTM with a tunable power ratio. The monolithic transceiver provides tunable responsivity by employing avalanche photodiodes (APDs) for opto-electrical conversion. The monolithic transceiver also employs a polarization beam rotator-splitter (PBRS) and a polarization beam rotator-combiner (PBRC) for supporting modulation schemes including polarization multiplexed quadrature amplitude modulation (PM-QAM) and polarization multiplexed quadrature phase shift keying (PM-QPSK).

  • Patent number: 10872547
    Abstract: A gate driver with reduced voltage fluctuations driving a display device generates pulse signals shifted in a specified phase. The gate driver includes connected unit circuits. Each unit circuit includes an output terminal, input and output transistors, and a holding module. First and second control signals, alternating oppositely between high and low states, govern the two transistors. The input transistor is controlled by a first control signal and outputs a high level voltage to a first node based on a trigger signal. The output transistor outputs the shifted pulse signal synchronously with a clock control signal, based on the high level voltage of the first node. Initially, the trigger signal is low and the first and second control signals are high. The holding module outputs the low level voltage to the output terminal based on the first control signal and the second control signal.

  • Patent number: 10544737
    Abstract: A turbofan engine includes a core engine, a fan, a fan bypass duct partially surrounding the core engine and the fan, and a bleed system. The bleed system includes a first bleed circuit configured to bleed pressurized air from the core engine and channel the flow to a first circuit of a heat exchanger, and a second bleed circuit configured to bleed fan air from the fan bypass duct and channel the flow to a second circuit of the heat exchanger. The second bleed circuit includes a bleed duct including a duct inlet and a duct outlet coupled in flow communication with the heat exchanger through a valve. The bleed duct also includes an acoustic suppression conduit extending from the bleed duct upstream of the valve to the fan bypass duct and sized to suppress pressure oscillations inside the second bleed circuit when the valve is at least partially closed.

  • Publication number: 20200013363
    Abstract: A display device comprising thin film transistor array substrate includes scan lines, data lines, pixel units, and a source driver. Each pair of scan lines extends in a first direction and data lines extend in a second intersecting direction. Of the first and second sub-pixels in each pixel unit, the first sub-pixel connects to the first scan line, and the second sub-pixel connects to the second scan line. The first and second sub-pixels also straddle and connect to one data line. Source driver supplies the data lines with voltages and the voltage to the first sub-pixel is greater than the voltage to the second sub-pixel. This configuration avoids appearance of stripes on the display arising from charging rates of adjacent pixel columns not being the same. A display panel using the thin film transistor array substrate is also provided.
