  • Patent number: 11848470
    Abstract: A Docsis-MoCA coupled line directional coupler includes an input port, an output port, a coupled port, and a termination port. A first track connects the input port to the output port and a second track, which may be substantially parallel to the first track, connects the termination port to the coupled port.

  • Patent number: 11781469
    Abstract: An insert device includes a body having an upper body portion configured to couple with a cylinder head of an engine cylinder and a lower body portion extending from the upper body portion toward a combustion chamber of the engine cylinder. The body includes an interior surface extending around a central volume positioned to receive liquid fuel from a fuel injector. The body includes gas inlet channels and fuel-and-gas mixture outlet channels. The gas inlet channels direct gas into the central volume where the gas mixes with the liquid fuel to form the fuel-and-gas mixture. The fuel-and-gas mixture outlet channels direct the mixture into the combustion chamber. The interior surface includes concave surface portions between the inlet channels and the outlet channels along a center axis of the body that are shaped to direct the gas into the central volume toward the liquid fuel in the central volume.

  • Publication number: 20230243504
    Abstract: An insert device may include a body coupled with an engine cylinder head. The body has an interior surface shaped to receive and engage a distal tip of a fuel injector. The body has gas conduits and mixture conduits with gas conduits extending from inlets along an exterior surface to outlets that intersect the mixture conduits. The mixture conduits extend from inlets along an interior surface of the body to outlets on the exterior surface. The gas conduits are positioned to direct gases outside of the body into the mixture conduits. The mixture conduits are positioned to receive fuel from spray holes of the fuel injector. The mixture conduits can entrain the gas with the fuel into a fuel-and-gas mixture that is directed out of the outlets of the mixture conduits and into a combustion chamber of an engine cylinder.
