  • Patent number: 10692381
    Abstract: The invention relates to a parking assistance apparatus (12) for a motor vehicle (10). The invention is based on the object of providing reliably working parking assistance that can involve computational-intensive processing of sensor signals. To this end, at least one sensor (20) for producing a sensor signal (S) that is dependent on a relative position (D) of a vehicle-external object (22) is connected to a first controller (14) that is designed to take each sensor signal (S) as a basis for producing position data (P) that describe the relative position (D) and to transmit said position data via a communication link (18) of the motor vehicle (10). A second controller (16) is designed to receive the position data (P) via the communication link (18) and, during a parking manoeuvre of the motor vehicle (10), to take the position data (P) as a basis for outputting a control signal (C) to an actuator device (26) of the motor vehicle (10).

  • Publication number: 20200171578
    Abstract: A method is provided to fabricate a high-power module. A non-touching needle is used to paste a slurry on a heat-dissipation substrate. The slurry comprises nano-silver particles and micron silver particles. The ratio of the two silver particles is 9:1˜1:1. The slurry is pasted on the substrate to be heated up to a temperature kept holding. An integrated chip (IC) is put above the substrate to form a combined piece. A hot presser processes thermocompression to the combined piece to form a thermal-interface-material (TIM) layer with the IC and the substrate. After heat treatment, the TIM contains more than 99 percent of pure silver with only a small amount of organic matter. No volatile organic compounds would be generated after a long term of use. No intermetallic compounds would be generated while the stability under high temperature is obtained. Consequently, embrittlement owing to procedure temperature is dismissed.
