  • Patent number: 10493746
    Abstract: A machine arrangement sequentially processes sheet-like substrates with multiple different processing stations each having a substrate-guiding unit and a substrate-processing unit. At least one of the processing stations has, as a substrate-processing unit, at least one non-impact printing device which prints on the substrate. The processing station with the at least one non-impact printing device has a printing cylinder. Each non-impact printing device is arranged at the circumference of the printing cylinder. The printing cylinder is triple-sized or quadruple-sized. A double-sized or a triple-sized transfer drum, or a corresponding feed cylinder, is arranged directly upstream of this printing cylinder. Alternatively, a double-sized or a triple-sized transfer drum, or a corresponding transfer cylinder, is arranged directly downstream of this printing cylinder.

  • Publication number: 20190286573
    Abstract: A method for operating translation look-aside buffers, TLBs, in a multiprocessor system. A purge request is received for purging one or more entries in the TLB. When the thread doesn't require access to the entries to be purged the execution of the purge request at the TLB may start. When an address translation request is rejected due to the TLB purge, a suspension time window may be set. During the suspension time window, the execution of the purge is suspended and address translation requests of the thread are executed. After the suspension window is ended the purge execution may be resumed. When the thread requires access to the entries to be purged, it may be blocked for preventing the thread sending address translation requests to the TLB and upon ending the purge request execution, the thread may be unblocked and the address translation requests may be executed.

  • Publication number: 20190277337
    Abstract: An active magnetic bearing of a shaft, which shaft can be rotated about an axis, includes a magnetically conductive main body, which is arranged in a stationary manner and which surrounds the shaft. Partial bodies are arranged one behind the other axially at an axial distance between adjacent partial bodies and form the magnetically conductive main body. A winding system is arranged in grooves of the magnetically conductive main body.

  • Patent number: 10387326
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes associating an initial use order with a plurality of target sets of a translation lookaside buffer (TLB), where the initial use order indicates an order of use of the plurality of target sets. The plurality of target sets are associated with an initial least-recently-used (LRU) state based on the initial use order. A new use order for the plurality of target sets is generated. Generating the new use order includes moving a first target set to a least-recently-used position, responsive to a purge of the first target set. The LRU state of the plurality of target sets is updated based on the new use order, responsive to the purge of the first target set. The first target set is identified as eligible for replacement according to an LRU replacement policy of the TLB, based at least in part on the purge of the first target set.

  • Publication number: 20190219482
    Abstract: In a method for monitoring a magnetic bearing apparatus a first pair of at least essentially diametrically opposed sensors and a second pair of at least essentially diametrically opposed sensors are arranged in offset relation about an angle. A distance of each of the sensors from a rotating body arranged inside the first and second pairs of sensors is determined by temporal averaging of a plurality of distance measurements. The distances of the sensors from the rotating body are compared and a warning signal is outputted when a difference in the distances exceeds a limit value.

  • Publication number: 20190219377
    Abstract: In a method for monitoring a magnetic bearing device for an electric rotating machine, a first pair of at least essentially diametrically opposed sensors and a second pair of at least essentially diametrically opposed sensors are arranged in offset relation about an angle. A distance is determined between each of the sensors and a body of rotation arranged inside the first and second pairs of sensors. A first average distance is determined from distance values of the first pair of sensors and a second average distance is determined from distance values of the second pair of sensors. A first change in the first average distance is captured and a second change in the second average distance is captured. The first and second changes are compared and a warning signal is outputted when a difference between the first and second changes exceeds a limit value.

  • Patent number: 7710890
    Abstract: A method for detecting a signal propagation time between a mobile radio terminal and a base station in a mobile radio network in a mobile radio terminal, particularly for the purpose of localizing the mobile radio terminal which inserts a propagation time detection information item into a channel request message in order to signal to the base station that no channel reservation is necessary, and that only the propagation time detection needs to be carried out, so as to achieve significantly reduced loading of network resources.

  • Patent number: 7603262
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for computer modeling the production process is disclosed. An integrated product and process engineering system may be a computer modeling system that models both a generic production process and a specific individual production process. The integrated product and process engineering system may store one or more time dependent process parameters related to the production process and one or more engineering change numbers related to different product designs. The effective time periods of the time dependent process parameters may be compared with the effective time periods of the engineering change numbers. Various flags may be associated with each comparison to indicate the validity of the time dependent process parameter.

  • Patent number: 6937888
    Abstract: A signal evaluation method for detecting QRS complexes in electrocardiogram (ECG) signals comprises the following steps: sampling of the ECG signal (4) and conversion into discrete signal values (x(n)) in chronological order; comparing the signal values (xf(n), xfq(n)) to a threshold function (K(n)) adaptively determined therefrom; determining a frequency number (D(n)) within a defined segment of the consecutive signal values, by which signal values (xf(n), xfq(n)) preferably fall short of the threshold function (K(n)); comparing the determined frequency number (D(n)) to a defined threshold (?), wherein an undershoot of the threshold (?) is significant for apresence of a QRS complex (5, 6, 7) in the defined segment of the ECG signal (4).
