  • Patent number: 10132882
    Abstract: A body coil support structure includes an elongate support member. The elongate support member defines an opening and an examination axis passing through the opening along a length of the elongate support member. The opening is configured to accept an object to be imaged. The elongate support member has a target shape for use during operation of the MRI system, with the elongate support member configured to be subjected to an operational load during operation. In a design state, the elongate support member defines a design shape, with the elongate support member not subjected to the operational load in the design state. In an installed state after installation in the MRI system, the elongate support member defines an operational shape. The elongate support member is subjected to the operational load in the installed state. The operational shape is closer to the target shape than is the design shape.

  • Patent number: 9842708
    Abstract: A circuit breaker includes an electrically insulative case and a rotor assembly disposed within the electrically insulative case. The rotor assembly includes a contact arm and a rotor that is rotatable relative to the electrically insulative case. The contact arm is coupled to the rotor and movable between a first position in which a conductive path is closed and a second position in which the conductive path is open. The rotor assembly also includes a latch mechanism coupled to the rotor. The latch mechanism retains the contact arm in the second position during a short circuit event. The latch mechanism is spaced from the contact arm when the contact arm is in the first position. The latch mechanism engages the contact arm when the contact arm is in the second position.

  • Publication number: 20170210187
    Abstract: A method of producing a control arm for a motor vehicle, in particular a multi-point control arm, preferably a transverse control arm, which is substantially formed by a fiber-plastic composite structure. The method includes the steps: creating of a preform structure with load-adapted fiber orientation, introducing the preform structure into a forming tool, consolidating the preform structure in the tool by application of pressure and/or temperature, and removing and further processing of the control arm.

  • Patent number: 9404972
    Abstract: Patterns used to detect a failure in a semiconductor chip are analyzed to determine a subset of logic in a design where a semiconductor chip, fabricated based on the design, contains a fault in the subset. Parts of the semiconductor chip can be pre-calculated to identify a key subsection of logic, based on the patterns, with that subsection being stored in a computer readable file. Good-machine simulation is performed on the subsection of logic using truncated rank-ordered simulation. The results are compared to the results of the testing of the physical semiconductor chip.

  • Publication number: 20160097724
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device and a method for automated evaluation of incubated immunoblot strips (5). What is essential for such immunoblot strips (5) is that these have regions coated with antigens, which regions discolour under the formation of so-called bands (6) as soon as a binding occurs, in particular between the antigen and an antibody present in a patient sample. Within the scope of the described technical solution, a camera (2) is initially used to make recordings of the surface of an incubated immunoblot strip (5) and these recordings are transmitted in digitized form to an evaluation unit (1). Finally, the discolourings, which occurred in the form of bands (6), are detected and at least partly quantified in the evaluation unit (1), such that a diagnosis suggestion is generated taking into account the number of bands (6) and the colour strength thereof.

  • Patent number: 9183352
    Abstract: A method, a system and an arrangement for predicting at least one system event and a corresponding computer program and a corresponding computer-readable storage medium are configured so that it is possible to predict a system event based on trends in observables over a certain period of time prior to the event occurring. One example of a system event is the failure of a system because the abnormal behavior of a component is reflected in irregularities in one or a plurality of observables. Another example of a system event is the early recognition or pre-acute prediction of a specific critical condition of a patient.
