  • Publication number: 20210317316
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for preparation of a high temperature-resistant bismuth yellow pigment. The method comprises: mixing an oxide which served as a matrix and dopan with a bismuth source, a vanadium source, or a molybdenum source, and then placing the mixture into a mill for grinding to obtain a precursor; further calcining and crushing the precursor to obtain the high temperature-resistant bismuth yellow pigment powder. The bismuth yellow pigment has a bright color, a b* value greater than 90, a stable performance, and a high heat-resistance above 800° C. The method is environmentally friendly without waste, and reaction conditions are simple. Doping of BiVO4 crystal lattices by incorporation of oxides can be achieved, so that the particle size and distribution of the bismuth yellow pigment can be effectively controlled while the color performance of the bismuth yellow pigment is greatly improved.

  • Patent number: 10728734
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a user equipment device (UE) implements a method for discovering the presence of neighboring UEs using an on-demand discovery signal transmission technique. This discovery process may be performed to enable the UEs to perform peer-to-peer communications with each other, wherein peer-to-peer communications is defined as direct communication between the UEs without involving a base station. The UE may be configured to transmit a discovery request signal when it has moved greater than a threshold amount since transmission of a prior discovery request signal. The discovery request signal causes one or more neighboring UEs to each transmit a discovery signal in response, and also causes the UE which generated the discovery request signal to transmit its own discovery signal. The received discovery signal from each of the neighboring UEs is useable to discover, or detect the presence of, these neighboring UEs.

During operation, the interface circuit may select the group in the set of recipient electronic devices, where the group includes at least one of the recipient electronic devices. Then, the interface circuit may provide the group wake-up packet for the recipient electronic devices in the group with information that specifies that a subset of the recipient electronic devices in the group transition from a low-power mode. For example, the information may include a bitmap that specifies the subset and an identifier of the group. Note that the electronic device may dynamically define the group. Alternatively, the recipient electronic devices in the group may be static.

  • Patent number: 10470126
    Abstract: In order to reduce power consumption of an electronic device during communication with another electronic device in a wireless local area network (WLAN), the electronic device analyzes fields in a given packet prior to a payload of the given packet to look for information that specifies a destination of the given packet. For example, the information may include: a full associated identification (AID) of the destination, a partial media-access-control (MAC) address of the destination; and/or a compressed (MAC) address of the destination. The information may be included in the preamble of the given packet. In particular, the information may replace length information in a high-throughput signal field in the given packet. Moreover, if the destination is other than the electronic device, the electronic device dumps the given packet and changes a power state of the electronic device, thereby reducing the power consumption.

  • Patent number: 10345435
    Abstract: Some embodiments relate to a waveform design for time-of-flight estimation in a wireless communication system. The waveform may include a number N of signal tones, wherein the number N of signal tones is greater than a number M of signal tones that the receiving wireless device is configured to decode. Upon receipt of the waveform, the receiving wireless device may store a timestamp which indicates a time of receipt of the waveform. The receiving wireless device may decode M of the N signal tones. For example, the receiving wireless device may decode the middle M signal tones of the N signal tones. One or more of the transmitting or receiving wireless devices may then estimate a distance between them based at least in part on the timestamp.

  • Patent number: 10273550
    Abstract: An ultrasound-assisting quenching process includes: S1) connect the workpiece with the ultrasonic unit tightly; S2) heat the workpiece to the quenching temperature and then hold for a period of time; S3) start the ultrasonic unit, then the ultrasound energy can be injected into the workpiece directly; and S4) put the workpiece into the coolant quickly to make the workpiece to be quenched. The device for this process mainly includes the ultrasonic unit and a heating unit. This invention inputs the ultrasound energy into the workpiece during the quenching process. Under the action of the ultrasound, the grain size of the workpiece after quenching process will be much smaller compared with the conventional quenching process. Therefore, the ultrasound-assisting quenching process can improve the strength and plasticity of the material, and extend the life of the workpiece.
