A step-by-step remote locating system for a digital bidirectional transmission link includes repeater pairs between a monitoring end equipment and a remote equipment. The monitoring equipment transmits remote location sequences and a locate end interruption on a forward channel. The sequences are intended to command cl...
A multi-step, alternating current power supply that provides for a failed-operation redundancy safety system that compensates for a short-circuited power switch and maintains an AC regulated output voltage without introducing undesirable harmonic components. The firing and logic controller 33 senses a short-circuited p...
A tree step (20) comprises a first member (24) which has a second member (30) pivotally connected thereto. Connected to the first member (24) is a braided rope (28) which substantially encircles a tree when the tree step (20) is in an installed configuration. The second member (30) includes a foot-support portion (60) ...
A pulse step modulator (PSM) is presented herein for use in an AM transmitter. The modulator includes a plurality of unit step modules connected together in series with each module including a DC voltage source together with an associated actuatable switch for, when actuated, turning on the associated module to provide...
A method of controlling the resistance and improving the low temperature tolerance of a polysilicon resistor is provided. The method of the present invention employs a second annealing step after one of the high temperature (about 800° C. or above) device activation anneals. That is, the second annealing step can be u...
This invention relates to a method for manufacturing teeth of a stator or rotor of a linear step motor. In order to let linear step motor move in small distance, either the stator or rotor need to be carved into miniscule indent and protruded teeth type. Traditional cutting and itching carving has the disadvantage of h...
The invention relates to a manufacturing method of a semi-conductor on insulator substrate from an SOI substrate comprising a surface layer of silicon on an electrically insulating layer, called buried insulating layer, wherein a layer of Si 1-x Ge x is formed on the superficial layer of silicon. The method comp...
One subject of the present invention is a method for the two-step dyeing of keratin fibres, comprising the application: (1) in a first step, of a composition A comprising one or more organic compounds (I) having a value of the Hansen solubility parameter δ H of less than or equal to 16 MPa 1/2 and having a molecular...

An arc fault detector includes an average instantaneous current generator which averages the current over the fundamental period and produces a substantial output only where there are substantial variations in waveform between half-cycles which is indicative of an arc. To discriminate over inrush currents, a pulse gene...
The method for fabricating a semiconductor device disclosed is to bond an inner lead and a pad of a semiconductor chip together using a bonding tool. The bonding tool has a bottom peripheral end being formed in either a circular arc shape with a curvature or a sloped surface shape with a chamfer angle. The inner lead i...
The disclosure relates to a stepped insulator process for HgCdTe infared focal plane devices, the insulator being a combination of two insulator materials, ZnS and SiO, which differ in dielectric constant and chemical reactivity. The structure is patterned on HgCdTe which has an accumulated surface region. The resultin...
Liquid sulphur-containing hydrocarbon feedstock is passed through two or more hydrodesulfurization zones and connected in a series each containing a packed bed of solid sulfurized catalyst. The liquid is passed from the first zone to the next until the final zone. Make up hydrogen is supplied to a hydrodesulfurization ...
An apparatus and method in digital processing provides a simple and efficient way of communicating parameters from a parent thread to child thread with two step thread creation. The method comprising the steps of: allocating hardware context for the child thread; enabling the parent thread to execute other instructions...
A control circuit uses an adjustable resistance to generate a first control signal whose amplitude varies with the setting of the resistance and a second, step-like control signal whose level changes from a first to a second level at a predetermined setting of the resistance. The variable resistance is coupled to the c...
A step detecting apparatus and method in a personal navigator where acceleration signals in at least two directions are acquired from an accelerometer sensor, as a pedestrian moves. Variances of the acceleration signals are calculated and summed. The variance sum is compared with a threshold. If the variance sum is gre...
An arbitrary step number is used in an encoding apparatus and method to encode an input data, or in a decoding apparatus and method to decode an input code. The arbitrary step number is an even number and greater than one, so that arbitrary compression ratio is available. In association with a lossless encoder further ...
