  • Publication number: 20200093463
    Abstract: An ultrasound imaging device includes an ultrasound transducer module disposed within a housing and a flowable acoustic damping material disposed on at least one surface located within an interior of the housing. The flowable acoustic damping material may be a Teflon-containing gel material, in contact with at least one internal surface of the imaging device to provide acoustic damping.

  • Patent number: 7583667
    Abstract: Techniques for determining a problem location or otherwise characterizing a network comprising a plurality of processing elements, including at least one processing element associated with performance of a packet encapsulation operation of an encapsulation protocol. The packet encapsulation operation is performed on a test packet to generate an encapsulated packet, the test packet having a time to live (TTL) value and an identifier. In conjunction with performance of the packet encapsulation operation, the TTL value and the identifier of the test packet are copied to a header of the encapsulated packet. The encapsulated packet is transmitted, and a determination is made as to whether a reply packet has been received responsive to transmission of the encapsulated packet. The reply packet, if any, is processed to obtain information utilizable in determining the problem location or otherwise characterizing the network.

  • Patent number: 4488102
    Abstract: A method for controlling a plurality of electronic switches employed to connect an alternating current voltage source with a motor. The method comprises the steps of generating a signal, directing the signal to each of a series of output lines in sequence, regularly repeating the directing step, conducting the signal from the output lines to the electronic switches to actuate the electronic switches, and continuously resynchronizing the directing of the signal with the voltage cycle of the voltage source.
