  • Publication number: 20110169302
    Abstract: An energy absorbing vehicle door having a door block strategically located within the door. The door block has an upper portion and a lower portion. The upper portion is wider than the lower portion and is attached to the inner panel of the door. A door beam is provided between the inner panel of the door and the outer panel. A portion of the door beam is positioned between the inner panel and the lower portion of the door block. The door beam may be attached to the lower portion of the door block. The attachment surface of the lower portion of the door block may have a geometry that is the same as or is substantially the same as the geometry of the door beam.

  • Patent number: 7832781
    Abstract: An integrated combined extended map pocket close-out and pelvic bolster component for attachment to a door trim substrate used in a vehicle door is disclosed. The component comprises a map pocket close-out portion, a pelvic bolster portion, and a bridge connecting the map pocket close-out portion and the pelvic bolster portion. The pelvic bolster portion is substantially hollow and preferably defines a box. The component includes a plurality of walls and the thickness of some of the walls is greater than the thickness of other walls. One or more of the walls may be angled. The map pocket close-out portion has a depth and the pelvic bolster portion has a depth. The depth of the map pocket close-out portion is greater than the depth of the pelvic bolster portion. The one-piece component is a molded component formed from a polymerized material.

  • Patent number: 7821429
    Abstract: A parallel to serial conversion circuit includes a plurality of switching units and a voltage output unit providing an operating voltage for the switching units. Each of the plurality of switching units is operable to receive a first clock signal and a second clock signal which have the same frequency, a phase shift exists between the first clock signal and the second clock signal for each of the switching units, and a phase difference exists between the first clock signals received by adjacent two switching units of the plurality of switching units. The plurality of switching units receive data bits of parallel data in sequence according to the phase difference, particularly, each of the plurality of switching units receives one data bit within a time window corresponding to the phase shift. In comparison with the prior art, the inventive solution implement the parallel to serial conversion using a single system clock frequency, so that the complexity and power consumption of the system is reduced.

  • Publication number: 20090284041
    Abstract: A door trim substrate having a construction which includes, in combination, an energy-absorbing pre-crush protective portion and a pelvic bolster portion is provided for use in a vehicle. The pre-crush protective portion is configured so as to protect the pelvic bolster portion from pre-crush in a vehicle side-impact event. The pre-crush portion is defined by a rib cassette structure which is preferably integrally molded into the door trim substrate below the pelvic bolster portion.

  • Publication number: 20090256391
    Abstract: An integrated door substrate and pelvic bolster is provided for use in a vehicle. The integrated component is formed from a polymerizable material by injection molding. The pelvic bolster is formed from thin lateral walls that buckle and tear under compressive loading. The pelvic bolster is designed to bend but not fracture under load, thus maintaining a continuous loading curve.

  • Patent number: 7313247
    Abstract: An automotive interior trim panel includes a contoured panel having an interior surface forming a portion of a passenger compartment of a vehicle, and an exterior surface cooperating with an exterior body panel, such as a door, to define a first volume. A speaker port is formed in the contoured panel for locating a speaker within the first volume. A shell including an integral acoustic volume circumscribes a portion of the exterior surface of the contoured panel, including the speaker port. The shell is mounted to the exterior surface of the contoured panel so as to define an acoustic chamber supported by the contoured panel and extending within the first volume.
