  • Patent number: 11371993
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the identification of biological markers of ovarian cancer. Specifically, cancer-associated autoantibodies to ANXA1, ARP3, SAHH, SERPH, ARAP1, OTUB1, ATP1A1, UBA1, and CFAH have been identified in subjects with early stage ovarian cancer. These autoantibodies can be utilised for a range of purposes including methods for detecting ovarian cancer, methods for screening for early stage ovarian cancer, and methods for assessing treatment response as well as disease progression and recurrence. The autoantibodies also represent prognostic markers of ovarian cancer development.

  • Patent number: 8704508
    Abstract: Method in which the current is measured inside an integrated PWM control circuit using at least one A/D converter which is likewise integrated in the circuit is described. The PWM controller is provided for the purpose of driving inductive loads and is arranged, in particular, in an electronic circuit of an electronic controller for a motor vehicle braking system. Before determining the actual current of the PWM controller, which is determined using the at least one A/D converter, the current is smoothed using a low-pass filter. A circuit arrangement for carrying out the above method and its use in electronic motor vehicle control systems is also described herein.

  • Patent number: 8664936
    Abstract: The invention relates to an electronic motor vehicle control system having at least one valve actuating circuit which controls a load current by means of pulse width modulation. The actuating circuit has at least one electronic current measuring circuit which has at least one measurement path with at least one analog/digital converter. The analog/digital converts an analog measurement signal of the load current into a digital measurement signal of the load current and is actuated or designed in such a way as to carry out a plurality of current measurements per PWM period. The at least one measurement path of the current measurement circuit has a signal conservation circuit which provides the analog measurement signal of the load current substantially unchanged, and independent of the actual load current, for at least a defined hold time (toff->on, ton->off).

  • Patent number: 8212698
    Abstract: An electronic circuit for correcting at least one digital measurement signal (??n, ??1, ??2) comprising at least one measurement channel having a sigma-delta modulator and a correction circuit. The sigma-delta modulator changes an analog measurement signal into a digital measurement signal in the form of a binary value sequence. The correction circuit corrects the digital measurement signal (??n, ??1, ??2) as a function of at least one correction datum (trim), wherein the correction circuit comprises at least one adding element and at least one multiplexer. The digital measurement signal is corrected in that the correction datum (trim) is weighted by means of the multiplexer and the adding element as a function of the digital measurement signal (??n, ??1, ??2).

  • Patent number: 8131439
    Abstract: An electronic controller for motor vehicle control systems having at least one valve actuation circuit is described herein. The electronic controller uses pulse width modulation to control the load current (iL) flowing through an essentially inductive load (L), and has at least one electronic current measuring circuit which has at least one analog/digital converter which converts an analog measurement signal for the load current (iL) into a digital measurement signal for the load current (iL). The at least one analog/digital converter is a sigma-delta modulator. A method for measuring current using sigma-delta modulation and to the use of the electronic controller in a motor vehicle brake system is also described herein.

  • Patent number: 7784881
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for reducing deviations between the effective current and the measured current in a pulse-width-modulated current control, in particular for electronic brake control units of motor vehicles, wherein the measured current is determined at a certain predefined time within an actuation period and a compensation occurs by means of temperature-responsive and/or supply-voltage-responsive compensation variables which are added to the measured current such that a corrected nominal current is available for current control. The invention also relates to a circuit arrangement for actuating several inductive loads and comprises a circuit for PWM control of the load current. The method of the invention is implemented as a program in a microcomputer or microcomputer system that is electrically connected to the PWM circuit.

  • Publication number: 20060262514
    Abstract: An illumination source includes a number of light emitting diodes (LEDs) operating at a first wavelength. Light from the LEDs illuminates a phosphor material that generates light at a second wavelength. A reflective polarizer transmits light at the second wavelength in a first polarization state and reflects light at the second wavelength in a second polarization state orthogonal to the first polarization state. The light at the second wavelength reflected by the reflective polarizer is directed back towards the phosphor material without an increase in angular range. In some embodiments the LEDs, having a conformal layer of phosphor material, are attached directly to the first surface of a liquid cooled plate. A liquid coolant contacts a second surface of the plate.
