  • Publication number: 20120070556
    Abstract: A fire pan provides a table-top or ground-supported pan or tray to hold a source of heat such as charcoal, burning wood, gas burner, and so forth. The pan places the heat source away from a surface, thus not damaging lawns, tabletops, parking lots, sidewalks, or other supporting surfaces. The pan may support one or more Dutch ovens, thus providing a “fire pit” of modest size, foldable into a very small envelope. Handles are extendible away from the pan for handling or moving, even when hot coals are present. The legs below are curved to fold up along the contour of the bottom surface of the pan.

  • Publication number: 20110231086
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for identifying and generating a route that provides a driver with an exhilarating ride. In an example method, the navigation system obtains location data for routes between a starting and ending location. The location data is analyzed by identifying points of inflection of the curved road portion. At least one curved segment is identified as being road portions between the points of inflection. A linear distance, Llinear, is measured between the points of inflection of the at least one curved segment. A curve depth, H, is measured by identifying the maximum distance between the line between the points of inflection and any point on the curved segment along a perpendicular to the line between points of inflection. A curved segment degree of curviness=H/Llinear is calculated and used to determine the measure of curviness of the route.

  • Publication number: 20070218615
    Abstract: A MOSgated trench device has a reduced on resistance by forming a less than about a 13 nm thick strained SiGe layer on the silicon surface of the trenches and forming a thin (30 nm or less) layer of epitaxially deposited silicon on the SiGe layer which epi layer is converted to a gate oxide layer. The conduction channel formed by the SiGe layer is permanently strained to increase its mobility particularly hole mobility.

  • Publication number: 20060022263
    Abstract: A vertical conduction semiconductor die has a top surface which receives a semiconductor junction pattern and a top electrode and a bottom surface with a bottom electrode. The bottom surface has one or more reduced thickness areas therein formed by selective etching or laser abrasion or the like to reduce the vertical conduction path length beneath at least portions of the semiconductor junction pattern and the bottom electrode to reduce the device RDSON. Thickened die portions remain to strengthen the die or wafer against breakage during handling. The full wafer thickness may be reduced before the local reduced thickness portions are formed.

  • Patent number: 4611811
    Abstract: An improved bingo display for use in manual or video electronic games. In the manual version, a bingo card contains permanently written numbers in the N-column and the third row. The remaining sixteen squares define four discrete groups of four squares each and there is a disk secured to and on top of each discrete group. The disks with unique symbols thereon can be rotated by a player so that the numbers or symbols thereon can be positioned in their traditional position or rotated during play so that the number or symbols on one square can be moved to another square and a bingo may be obtained. In the electronic embodiment, numbers in the N-column and third row through the free space are a first color at the start of the game. The remaining sixteen squares of groups of four are of a second color but are continuously changing color in a random pattern. After a predetermined period of time, certain of the sixteen squares take on the first color while others remain the same.
