  • Patent number: 11960760
    Abstract: Systems and methods for scheduling the execution of disk access commands in a split-actuator hard disk drive are provided. In some embodiments, while a first actuator of the split actuator is in the process of performing a first disk access command (a victim operation), a second disk access command (an aggressor operation) is selected for and executed by a second actuator of the split actuator. The aggressor operation is selected from a queue of disk access commands for the second actuator, and is selected based on being the disk access command in the queue that can be initiated sooner than any other disk access command in the queue without disturbing the victim operation.

  • Patent number: 11952581
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for the production of polyunsaturated fatty acids in an organism by introducing, into the organism, nucleic acids which encode polypeptides with ?5-elongase activity. Advantageously, these nucleic acids can be expressed in the organism together with further nucleic acids which encode polypeptides of the biosynthesis of the fatty acid or lipid metabolism. Especially advantageous are nucleic acids which encode ?6-desaturases, ?5-desaturases, ?4-desaturases and/or ?6-elongases. These desaturases and elongases are advantageously derived from Thalassiosira, Euglena or Ostreococcus. The invention furthermore relates to a process for the production of oils and/or triacylglycerides with an elevated content of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, and oils and/or triacylglycerides thus obtained.

  • Publication number: 20240093918
    Abstract: A heat pump includes a compressor that is connected via two refrigerant-conveying fluid lines to a heat pump component through which refrigerant flows, wherein each fluid line has a longitudinal axis, wherein an imaginary direction vector which coincides with the longitudinal axis points, on the route between the compressor and the heat pump component, at least once in a different direction to an imaginary starting direction vector which begins at the compressor, where it likewise coincides with the longitudinal axis, wherein the longitudinal axis extends in a space having three imaginary, mutually perpendicular planes. The fluid line is shaped such that the direction vector, on the route between the compressor and the heat pump component, and with respect to all three planes, extends so as to be rotated by an angle of more than 180° relative to the starting direction vector at least once.
