  • Patent number: 10960485
    Abstract: The invention features a replaceable cartridge for a plasma arc torch. The cartridge includes a cartridge body having a first section and a second section. The first and second sections are joined at an interface to form a substantially hollow chamber. The interface provides a coupling force that secures the first and second sections together. The cartridge also includes an arc constricting member located in the second section; an electrode included within the substantially hollow chamber; and a contact start spring element affixed to the electrode. The spring element imparts a separating force that biases the electrode toward at least one of the first section or the second section of the body.

  • Publication number: 20210083735
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure disclose various methods for grouping network resources into precoder resource groups (PRGs) for precoding in MIMO communication. A user equipment (UE) may select a common precoder that may not be restricted to a codebook for precoding the resources in the same PRG. These resource grouping methods provide the UE with the flexibility to select a precoder that is well suited to the channel or bandwidth. Moreover, the base station may reduce downlink signaling because it does not need to signal the precoder choice to the UE. In some examples, the base station may receive PRG based channel state information feedback that facilitates DL precoding. Other aspects, embodiments, and features are also claimed and described.
