  • Patent number: 10707858
    Abstract: A power module includes a first terminal, a second terminal, and a number of semiconductor die coupled between the first terminal and the second terminal. The semiconductor die are configured to provide a low-resistance path for current flow from the first terminal to the second terminal during a forward conduction mode of operation and a high-resistance path for current flow from the first terminal to the second terminal during a forward blocking configuration. Due to improvements made to the power module, it is able to pass a temperature, humidity, and bias test at 80% of its rated voltage for at least 1000 hours.

  • Publication number: 20190082340
    Abstract: A Core Service Platform (CSP) system is integrated with an operator network and IT system to provide services to subscribers and operators. Based on information collected from the operator network and IT system, the CSP system delivers alerts to a subscriber's device and provides offers to resolve the condition causing the alerts. The CSP system provides customized contextual offers to the subscriber's device based on contextual assessments of a subscriber's current context, such as time in contract, loyalty status, data and voice usage, value of customer, time, location and purchase history. The CSP system also provides an operator a suite of tools for the operator to manage its pricing, offers, campaigns and other subscriber-related issues.

  • Publication number: 20180225083
    Abstract: Systems and methods for enabling the generating and modifying of sound elements is provided. A sound engine includes or is linked to one or more sound modification interfaces that enable one or more users to access a digital waveform generator/modifier utility (“digital audio generator”, “digital envelope generator”), so as to graphically map aspects of that audio waveform's generation, by tracing one or more Bezier paths defined that can be processed by the sound engine, so as to define or modify aspects of the waveform, such as its frequency, pitch and amplitude envelopes, harmonic structure, the timing or pitch of component waveform elements, or directly upon the waveform. The sound engine enables user manipulation of the Bezier paths, including touch input modification of the paths (e.g. dragging, forming etc.) that define or modify fundamental qualities of the corresponding waveform.
