  • Publication number: 20230219820
    Abstract: A cracking process for a reaction distillation of chlorosilane slurry includes feeding a chlorosilane slurry into a phase separator, drying a solid phase, feeding a chlorosilane polymer into a plate distillation column, returning kettle materials of the plate distillation column, and dividing a material produced from a top of the column. The process adopts an ionic liquid catalyst, which is environmentally friendly and reusable. The cracking and distillation of chlorosilane polymer are carried out simultaneously to shorten the time and increase the utilization rate of raw materials, which can reduce energy consumption and save costs and facilitate industrial production. A plate column is used as a distillation column, in which the two phases of the gas and liquid are sufficiently contacted. Therefore, the transfer of mass and heat is good, the production capacity is good, and the tower is not easily blocked, thereby making it easy to clean.

  • Publication number: 20230216509
    Abstract: A phase-locked loop (PLL) circuit generates an analog signal in phase-lock with a reference signal at a reference frequency. The PLL circuit includes a charge pump circuit, a loop filter circuit, a feedback divider, and a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). The charge pump circuit charges a sample capacitor of the loop filter circuit to a sample voltage based on a phase difference between the generated analog signal and the reference signal. The loop filter circuit stores the sample voltage as a proportional control voltage in a hold capacitor to reduce or avoid ripple in the control voltage that causes jitter in the analog signal. The loop filter circuit also provides the sample voltage to an integral component circuit comprising a comparator and digital accumulator producing an integral control. The VCO generates the analog signal at a frequency based on the proportional control voltage and the integral control voltage.
