  • Patent number: 10753230
    Abstract: A spoolie manifold including two or more spaced apart caps including outlets and one pair of caps connected together in flow communication by a jumper tube assembly. Jumper tube assembly including a jumper tube having first and second spoolies attached to opposite ends of the jumper tube. Ends may be welded into counterbores of the spoolies having spherical spoolie ends press-fitted into first and second sleeves in bores in pair of the caps and sleeves retained in bores with retainer clips. A duct connected in flow communication to an inlet of one of the caps. Spoolie manifold may include three spaced apart caps including a distributor cap between two port caps connected in flow communication to distributor cap by jumper tube assembly. Cap outlets may be feed strut ports in casing of turbine frame including hub spaced inwardly from casing and having spaced apart hollow struts with strut ports.

  • Publication number: 20180115710
    Abstract: A disclosed apparatus includes an image sensor, an LED flash driver, and image adjustment logic, operatively coupled to an LED flash driver. The image adjustment logic is operative to detect a flash driving current level produced by the LED flash driver and to adjust an image captured using the image sensor, in response to the flash driving current level. In one embodiment, the image adjustment logic may access a lookup table to obtain an image adjustment corresponding to a detected flash driving current level. The image adjustment logic is operative to adjust the image processing pipeline, the image sensor, or both, in response to the flash driving current level.

  • Patent number: 6895033
    Abstract: A first sequence state storage module (20) periodically stores a present state (22) of a long code generator (30). Following a restoration of power after a power cut condition, or following the termination of any other interruption of the generation of the long code, a sequence recovery module (50) then provides an updated present state (36). The updated present state (36) is based upon a stored present state (24) and a time value (52) that is reset whenever the present state (22) of the long code or other sequence is stored and that is available even when the long code or other sequence is interrupted.
