    Abstract: Inductive coupling arising between adjacent vias in interconnect technologies (commonly associated with printed circuit boards or package) can be combatted through the addition of metal plates to vias. The plates generate capacitive coupling that can compensate for the inductive crosstalk normally generated between vias in printed circuit boards or packages. When the added plates of two neighboring vias overlap with each other, a capacitive coupling is generated. By balancing the inductive coupling with capacitive coupling, an effective reduction of far end crosstalk may be obtained.

  • Patent number: 8978247
    Abstract: A method for forming an interconnection element having metalized structures includes forming metalized structures in an in-process unit that has a support material layer with first and second spaced-apart surfaces defining a thickness therebetween, a handling structure, and an insulating layer separating at least portions of the first surface of the support material layer from at least portions of the handling structure. The metalized structures are formed extending through the thickness of the support material layer. The method also includes etching at least a portion of the insulating layer to remove the handling structure from the in-process unit and further processing the in-process unit to form the interconnection element.

  • Publication number: 20150070878
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments of an artificial tree that is lit by LEDs. Individual trunk modules are provided on trunk sections that provide individual control of LED strings disposed on branches on each of the trunk sections. Remote control devices and smart devices connected to the Internet can control the trunk modules. Spring-loaded flat connectors between the trunk sections, and also between the branches in the trunks, provide a solid electrical connection, which has a low susceptibility to failure. Plastic injection molded branches having injected molded sockets are provided for connecting LEDs that can be plugged directly into sockets on the trunk sections. The LEDs can be driven with an AC or DC electrical power supply.

  • Publication number: 20150068315
    Abstract: A pressure sensor includes a pressure sensing element and a top cap. The pressure sensing element includes a bonded wafer substrate having a buried sealed cavity. A wall of the buried sealed cavity forms a sensing diaphragm. One or more sense elements may be supported by the sensing diaphragm and one or more bond pads are supported by the upper side of the bonded wafer substrate. Each of the bond pads may be positioned adjacent to the sensing diaphragm and electrically connected to one or more of the sense elements. The top cap may be secured to the upper side of the bonded wafer substrate such that an aperture in the top cap facilitates passage of a media in a downward direction to the sensing diaphragm. The top cap may be configured to isolate the bond pads from the media.
