  • Publication number: 20200378105
    Abstract: An automatic sewage regulation system and a regulating method are provided. The automatic sewage regulation system includes buffer tanks, an equalization tank, a sewage treatment apparatus and an automatic sewage regulating device. The automatic sewage regulating device includes sensing modules for sensing and transmitting water quality sensing values of sewage in the buffer tanks to a control module which outputs regulating signals to water flow regulators, so that the water flow regulators can regulate flowing volumes of the sewage of the buffer tanks according to the regulating signal, to keep a water quality sensing value of the sewage in the equalization tank within a preset range, thereby preventing the equalization tank from converging sewage having excessively-high or excessively-low water quality sensing value. As a result, burden of the sewage treatment apparatus can be reduced, and the lifetime of the sewage treatment apparatus can be extended.

  • Patent number: 10659079
    Abstract: An apparatus determines a code block size (CBS) of information bits contained in a codeword of low-density parity check (LDPC) coding. The apparatus compares the CBS with at least one threshold, determines, based on a result of the comparison, a Kb number and determines a Kp number based on a code rate and the Kb number. The apparatus generates a parity check matrix. An information portion of the parity check matrix is a first matrix formed by M number of second square matrices. M is equal to Kp multiplied by Kb. A total number of columns in the Kb number of second square matrices is equal to a total number of bits of the CBS. One or more matrices of the M number of second square matrices are circular permutation matrices. The apparatus operates an LDPC encoder or an LDPC decoder based on the parity check matrix.

  • Publication number: 20200144279
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a structure and method for embedding a non-volatile memory (NVM) in a HKMG (high-? metal gate) integrated circuit which includes a high-voltage (HV) HKMG transistor. NVM devices (e.g., flash memory) are operated at high voltages for its read and write operations and hence a HV device is necessary for integrated circuits involving non-volatile embedded memory and HKMG logic circuits. Forming a HV HKMG circuit along with the HKMG periphery circuit reduces the need for additional boundaries between the HV transistor and rest of the periphery circuit. This method further helps reduce divot issue and reduce cell size.
