  • Patent number: 10990381
    Abstract: A method updating a program in a flash memory includes executing a first image of the program while an address space of the program is imaged onto the memory blocks, which are operated in a single-level mode; copying part of the first image from a range within the address space, which is imaged onto one of the blocks, into a backup block; setting the one of the blocks to a multi-level mode; while the address range is imaged onto the backup block, programming the one of the blocks with part of the second image besides for the part of the first image; switching the address range back to the block while the block remains in the multi-level mode; as long as the second image is incomplete, repeating the copying, programming, and switching with further parts of the second image; and subsequently executing the second image instead of the first image.

  • Patent number: 10463159
    Abstract: A swiveling arrangement with a swiveling element swivelable around an axis powered and damped by a gas spring having a cylinder filled with gas and divided into first and second working chambers by a piston that has a piston rod guided through the second working chamber and a guiding and sealing unit. A first connection opened during an outward stroke of the piston from the second to the first working chamber, and a second connection is opened during an inward stroke from the first to the second working chamber that has a smaller cross-sectional flow area than the first connection. An auxiliary piston separates the second working chamber from an auxiliary chamber. A third connection from the auxiliary chamber to the second working chamber opened in the end move-out stroke and a fourth connection from the second working chamber to the auxiliary chamber opened in the move-in stroke.

  • Publication number: 20050137807
    Abstract: A method is described for selecting chemical compounds and visualizing their ADME properties using an indication-specific target profile. In one embodiment, the method comprises determining and/or selecting molecular properties of one or more compounds in a computer database. This information is used to generate one or more ADME maps describing the compounds' behaviour in a biophysical model. An indication-specific target profile of the desired ADME properties is defined and compared with the compounds' actual ADME profile or map to make an optimized selection of compounds.

  • Publication number: 20050075274
    Abstract: A method for determining the interaction of one or more chemical active compounds with organisms. The method comprises selecting at least one compound and analyzing its physiko-chemical and/or biochemical characteristics including its pharmacokinetic properties in various anatomical and physiological compartments of the organism in question. The relevant physiological compartments are characterized with respect to the compound's various pharmacokinetic properties that may vary with the mode of administering the compound. A combined system of coupled differential equations is then used to simulate a concentration-time curve of the active compound in selected compartments.
