In an embodiment a method of feeding back channel state information from a beamformee device to a beamformer device is disclosed. The method comprises receiving, at a plurality of antennas of the beamformee device, signals from the beamformer device; constructing a beamforming matrix, the beamforming matrix spanning a vector subspace and indicating the signals received by each of the plurality of antennas of the beamformee device;determining a first feedback matrix that spans the vector subspace of the beamforming feedback matrix such that it can be compressed with a lower number of non-zero coefficients than the beamforming feedback matrix; compressing the first feedback matrix into a plurality of coefficients; and transmitting an indication of the plurality of coefficients to the beamformer device.

WO/2016/020636 APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR SUBMERGING MATERIALS INTO A MOLTEN MATERIAL BATH||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/GB2015/051804||FIVES SOLIOS LIMITED ||UNITT, Michael Raymond |
A furnace (12) has a chamber (14) and a port (16) in fluid communication with the chamber for containing a bath of molten material (18). A submergence plate (30) is positioned in the port to define a submergence flow channel between itself and an inclined lower wall (22) of the port. An electromagnetic induction unit (28) mounted to the inclined lower wall (22) induces a downward flow of the molten material (18) through the submergence flow channel. Materials added to the upper surface levels of the bath (18) in the port are entrained in the flow through the channel and are dissipated into the furnace chamber (14). The submergence plate (30) is narrower than the internal width of the port. At least a majority of the plate (30) is submerged in the molten bath, its upper edge (40) being in the range of 50mm above to 150mm below the upper surface level (20) of the bath.

There is provided a method for the chlorination of a sucrose-6-acylate to produce a 4,1',6'-trichloro-4,1',6'-trideoxy-galactosucrose-6-acylate, wherein said method comprises the following steps (i) to (v): (i) providing a first component comprising sucrose-6-acylate; (ii) providing a second component comprising a chlorinating agent; (iii) combining said first component and said second component to afford a mixture; (iv) heating said mixture for a heating period in order to provide chlorination of sucrose-6-acylate at the 4, 1' and 6' positions thereof; (v) quenching said mixture to produce a 4,1',6'-trichloro-4,1',6'-trideoxy- galactosucrose-6-acylate; wherein at least one of said first component and said second component comprises a reaction vehicle, and said reaction vehicle comprises a tertiary amide; and wherein said mixture comprises a cosolvent during a least a portion of the heating period of step (iv), wherein said cosolvent comprises dimethylacetamide (DMAc).
WO/2016/020637 WRITE OPERATIONS TO NON-VOLATILE MEMORY||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/GB2015/051823||ARM LIMITED ||SAIDI, Ali Ghassan |
An apparatus for processing data and a method of data processing are provided. A processor core in the apparatus performs data processing operations in response to a sequence of instructions, including write operations which write data items to a non-volatile memory. A write-back cache stores local copies of the data items retrieved from the memory and written to the memory by the processor core. A storage unit is provided which stores indications of the write operations initiated by the processor core and the processor core is configured to respond to an end instruction by causing the local copies of data items which are the subject of the write operations by the processor core, and for which an indication is stored in the storage unit, to be cleaned from the write-back cache to the memory. The indications of the write operations stored in the storage unit are then cleared.

||PCT/GB2015/052048||ARM IP LIMITED ||MERIAC, Milosch |
A method of controlling a data processing device, the method comprising: receiving, at the data processing device, a communication from a remote device wherein the communication comprises verification data; verifying the verification data at the data processing device; initiating an action by a watchdog associated with the data processing device based on the verification.
WO/2016/020682 METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR DATA ANALYSIS AND COMPRESSION||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/GB2015/052269||ILLUMINA CAMBRIDGE LIMITED ||COX, Anthony James |
The present disclosure provides computer implemented methods and systems for analysing datasets, such as large data sets output from nucleic acid sequencing technologies. In particular, the present disclosure provides for data analysis comprising computing the BWT of a collection of strings in an incremental, character by character, manner. The present disclosure also provides compression boosting strategies resulting in a BWT of a reordered collection of data that is more compressible by second stage compression methods compared to non-reordered computational analysis.
WO/2016/020653 MECHANICAL APPARATUS||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/GB2015/052219||HARDY, William ||HARDY, William |
The invention provides a mechanical apparatus comprising: a main wheel rotatable about a main axis; four radially spaced pendulum axes parallel to and around the main axis, and four pairs of weighted pendulums. Each pair is mounted to the main wheel for 360º rotation about a separate pendulum axis. A latching mechanism associated with each pendulum pair releasably but independently holds one or both pendulum of a pair at one or more rotational position, the engagement and/or release of a pendulum by a latching mechanism being operated by the movement of pendulums within the same or other pairs and/or by the rotation of the main wheel. As the main wheel rotates about the main axis the pendulums rotate about the pendulum axes under the control of the latching mechanism.
