  • Publication number: 20200379930
    Abstract: Methods and systems support bridging between end devices conforming to a legacy bus specification and a host processor using an updated bus specification, for example the latest PCIe specification or Compute Express Link (CXL). A hardware bridge can serve as an intermediary between the legacy I/O devices and the host processor. The hardware bridge has a hardware infrastructure and performs a hardware virtualization of the legacy I/O devices such that their legacy hardware is emulated by a virtual interface. The hardware bridge can surface the virtual interface to the host processor, enabling these I/O devices to appear to the host processor as an end device communicating in accordance with the updated bus specification. The hardware virtualization can involve emulating the I/O devices using scalable I/O Virtualization (SIOV) queue pairs, providing flexible and efficient translation between the legacy and updated specifications.

C. and is a viscous, tacky, varnish-like liquid at a temperature falling in the range of 40.degree. C. to 100.degree. C. Also described are use of the polyimide precursors in preparing coated paper webs useful in preparing paper-backed prepregging tape, and use of the coated paper webs in preparing the paper-backed prepregging tapes.

  • Patent number: 4892896
    Abstract: Prepreg precursors and other normally non-flowable resinous semi-solid or viscous liquid polyimide precursor compositions often need to be transformed into free-flowable liquids without dilution and without causing changes in their chemical composition. Such compositions are composed of (a) a diester of an aromatic tetracarboxylic acid, (b) an aromatic diamine, (c) a polyamic acid producible from (i) an aromatic diamine and (ii) a dianhydride of an aromatic tetracarboxylic acid, and (d) an inert solvent in an amount insufficient to provide a flowable liquid at room temperature. Such compositions readily undergo chemical change (amidization and imidization) when subjected to heating in a conventional oven because of local overheating, and poor heat transfer within the body of the composition.
