  • Publication number: 20080259665
    Abstract: One aspect of the invention relates to a rectifier circuit for providing a rectified voltage, with a first AC voltage terminal to which an AC voltage can be applied, with a first DC voltage terminal to which a DC voltage can be provided, and with a control switching element between the first AC voltage terminal and the first DC voltage terminal. The control switching element only couples the first AC voltage terminal to the first DC voltage terminal if the electrical potential at the first AC voltage terminal has a predeterminable polarity compared with a reference potential and if the amount of the electrical potential at the first DC voltage terminal is less than or equal to the amount of the electrical potential at the first AC voltage terminal.

  • Patent number: 7429001
    Abstract: The invention relates to a label identification system comprised of a transmitting-receiving unit and of identification labels on which the identification information is stored in the form of a digital identification information word. The provision of a circuit on the identification label in the form of a circuit arrangement, which is prefabricated using a polymer technique and on which the identification information is subsequently placed by the offset printing of conductor tracks, enables the provision of an identification label involving a minimal consumption of energy during inexpensive mass production. The bulk of the identification information processing is transferred to the transmitting-receiving unit.

  • Patent number: 7137645
    Abstract: A control device for a restraining system in a motor vehicle is proposed, a safety switch, which also includes a watchdog, performing the function of a safety switch in the control device. The safety switch monitors sensor signals which are transmitted to the processor of the control device for plausibility and triggers appropriate restraining systems via a time unit for a predefined time period only when the safety switch itself detects a trigger event. On the basis of supplementary data from the sensor signals, the safety switch infers how the sensor signals are to be processed. The safety switch is designed such that it triggers the restraining systems correspondingly assigned to the sensors. When the control device is switched on, the processor performs a test of the safety switch by generating a test signal using the sensors.
