  • Publication number: 20200334173
    Abstract: A U-I/O card improves on traditional I/O cards by enabling configuration of each I/O channel on each U-I/O card to operate according to a desired signal type (e.g., AI, AO, DI, or DO). Thus, each I/O channel of a given U-I/O card may be coupled to any type of field device. The U-I/O card thus simplifies I/O network design, wiring, configuration, commissioning, redesign, and rewiring. The U-I/O card also improves space efficiency in marshalling cabinets and eliminates inefficient use of I/O cards relative to traditional I/O cards.

  • Publication number: 20200285795
    Abstract: Systems and methods for obfuscating a circuit design are described. One of the methods includes receiving the circuit design from a user computing device. The circuit design includes a plurality of circuit components. The method further includes obfuscating each of the circuit components by transforming layout features associated with the circuit design into a generic layout feature representation. The generic layout feature representation excludes scaled representations of the layout features. The method also includes generating a visual representation of the obfuscated designs. Each of the obfuscated designs has an input port and an output port. The method further includes enabling placement of the obfuscated designs and routing between the input ports and the output ports of the obfuscated designs. The method includes generating an obfuscated integrated circuit design having a master input port, a master output port, the obfuscated designs, and the routing between the obfuscated designs.

  • Patent number: 10767855
    Abstract: In a method and system for the combustion of ammonia, wherein a first combustion chamber receives ammonia and hydrogen in controlled proportions, and an oxygen-containing gas such as air. Combustion of the ammonia and hydrogen produces nitrogen oxides among other combustion products. A second combustion chamber receives the nitrogen oxides along with further ammonia and hydrogen in further controlled proportions along with further oxygen-containing gas such as air. The nitrogen oxides are combusted into nitrogen and water.

  • Publication number: 20200277894
    Abstract: A system and method for supplying an energy grid with energy from an intermittent renewable energy source having a production unit for producing Hydrogen, Nitrogen, and Oxygen. The production unit is operated by using energy provided by the renewable energy source. An Oxygen storage receives and stores Oxygen produced by the production unit, a mixing unit receives and mixes the Hydrogen and the Nitrogen produced by the production unit to form a Hydrogen-Nitrogen-mixture, an Ammonia source receives and processes the Hydrogen-Nitrogen-mixture for generating a gas mixture containing Ammonia, an Ammonia power generator generates energy for the energy grid. The Ammonia power generator is fluidly connected to the Ammonia storage vessel, is configured to combust the received Ammonia in a combustion chamber to generate the energy, and is fluidly connected to the Oxygen storage to introduce Oxygen into the combustion chamber for combustion of Ammonia.

  • Publication number: 20200227700
    Abstract: A battery pack for an electric vehicle or a hybrid vehicle may include a housing, a stack of battery cells disposed within the housing, and a cooling subassembly. The housing typically holds the cell stack together, and the cooling subassembly typically cools the cell stack to prevent damage to the battery cells and to maintain the performance of the battery cells. The cooling subassembly may include a cold plate defining a liquid flow channel and one or more thermoelectric devices (TEDs) that are operable to cool the cell stack when current is supplied thereto. Heat spreaders may be employed within the battery pack, and exemplary configurations of components to thermally and mechanically couple the cooling subassembly are described.
