WO/2016/193648 METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR MONITORING AIRCRAFT STATUS||WO||08.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2015/051598||SITA INFORMATION NETWORKING COMPUTING UK LIMITED||LACROIX, Yanik|
A computerised method is provided for monitoring the status of an aircraft. The method comprises sending, from an output module of an aircraft monitoring system, a reporting more report data signal response and monitoring, at an input module of the aircraft monitoring system, for received data signal to the aircraft monitoring system. This sets a contract with the aircraft that may be used to monitor for unexpected behaviour or non-compliance with the contract terms. The method further comprises determining, at a processor of the aircraft monitoring system, if one or more alert criteria have been satisfied by the received data signal responses and generating, at an alerting module of the aircraft monitoring system, an alert based on the determination.
WO/2016/193649 RESPIRATORY THERAPY APPARATUS AND SYSTEM||WO||08.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2016/000094||SMITHS MEDICAL INTERNATIONAL LIMITED||BENNETT, Paul James Leslie|
A respiratory therapy system (200) includes a face mask (1) with an inlet (10) connected with a gas entrainment device (14) and an outlet (11) connected with a pressure relief device (31). The entrainment device (14) has a nozzle (16) connected with a cylinder (22) of compressed oxygen and entrains air from atmosphere to mix with the oxygen. A shut-off valve (23) is connected in line between the entrainment device (14) and the oxygen cylinder (22) and is opened and closed by a drive rod (33) coupled with the pressure relief valve (31). When the patient exhales the pressure relief valve (31) displaces the drive rod (33) to close the shut-off valve (23) and prevent oxygen being supplied to the entrainment device (14), thereby conserving the oxygen.
WO/2016/193650 APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CUTTING, PRINTING OR EMBOSSING||WO||08.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2016/000102||AB GRAPHIC INTERNATIONAL LTD||ADAMS, Mike|
The invention relates to an apparatus (10, 80) and method (160) for cutting, printing or embossing a continuous sheet (26) of material. The apparatus (10, 80) comprising a tool element (12), at least two anvils 14, 16 which are co-operable with the tool element (12), and a phase adjustment device (24).

The apparatus (10, 80) is adapted to receive the continuous sheet (26) at a constant speed into the apparatus (10, 80), and being adapted to output the continuous sheet (26) at a constant speed from the apparatus (10, 80). The phase adjustment device (24) is operable to adjust a speed of the continuous sheet (26) within the apparatus (10, 80) in order to adjust a phase of alternate parts of the continuous sheet (26) to be cut, printed or embossed by each anvil (14, 16) as it co-operates with the tool element (12).
WO/2016/193651 HOLE SAW||WO||08.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2016/000112||GAMBLE, Kyle||GAMBLE, Kyle|
The present invention relates to hole cutting in general and, in particular to the cutting of holes (34) and the like in plasterboard, plywood, plaster walls and the like. The use of rotary drill tools such as hand-drills, mains or battery powered machine drills is ubiquitous in the building trade whether for maintenance or original build, by carpenter, electrician, gas-engineer or plumber. Equally most homes have a number of drill-drivers for Do-lt-Yourself (DIY) projects hobbies or otherwise. Typically, a DIY drill-driver for home will be provided with a set of drill bits which are cutting tools used to create cylindrical holes (34), almost always of circular cross-section. Drill bits come in many sizes and have many uses. A hole saw (14, 20), also known as a hole cutter, is a saw blade having an annular (ring) shape, whose annular kerf creates a hole in the work-piece without having to cut up the core material. It is used in a drill. Hole saws typically have a pilot drill bit (11) at their centre to keep the hole saw (14, 20) centralised, to prevent the saw teeth (18) from moving from the intended place of cutting or "from walking", as is commonly said. A problem exists, on the one hand that it is difficult and/or clumsy and/ or time consuming to change a hole saw (14, 20) bit. On the other hand especially in the case of the enlargement of holes (34), a pre- existing hole may prevent placement of a central twist-drill bit (11).

||PCT/GB2016/050978||ARM LIMITED||CRASKE, Simon, John|
A data processing apparatus (2) operates in a first mode of operation having a first set of processing circuitry (8, 12, 18, 20, 22) ready to perform processing operations and in a second mode of operation having a second set of processing circuitry (8, 12, 14, 18, 20, 22, 24) ready to perform processing operations. A first proper subset (32) of program instructions within the instruction set supported are processed by the processor using a selectable one of the first mode and the second mode. A second proper subset (34) of program instructions within the instruction set are required to be processed by the processor operating in the second mode. Processing circuitry (14, 24) which is inactive in a mode of operation may be placed into a low power state.
WO/2016/193653 PROCESSING PIPELINE WITH FIRST AND SECOND PROCESSING MODES HAVING DIFFERENT PERFORMANCE OR ENERGY CONSUMPTION CHARACTERISTICS||WO||08.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2016/050907||ARM LIMITED||BATLEY, Max John|
An apparatus (2) has a processing pipeline (4) supporting at least a first processing mode and a second processing mode with different energy consumption or performance characteristics. A storage structure (22, 30, 36, 50, 40, 64, 44) is accessible in both the first and second processing modes. When the second processing mode is selected, control circuitry (70) triggers a subset (102) of the entries of the storage structure to be placed in a power saving state.
WO/2016/193654 DETERMINING A PREDICTED BEHAVIOUR FOR PROCESSING OF INSTRUCTIONS||WO||08.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2016/050908||ARM LIMITED||BATLEY, Max John|
An apparatus comprises prediction circuitry( 40, 100, 80) for determining, based on current prediction policy information (43, 82, 104), a predicted behaviour to be used for processing instructions. The current prediction policy information is updated based on an outcome of processing of instructions. A storage structure (50) stores at least one entry identifying previous prediction policy information (60) for a corresponding block of instructions. In response to an instruction from a block having a corresponding entry in the storage structure (50) which identifies the previous prediction policy information (60), the current prediction policy information (43, 82, 104) can be reset based on the previous prediction policy information 60 identified in the corresponding entry of the storage structure (50).
WO/2016/193656 INSTRUCTION ISSUE ACCORDING TO IN-ORDER OR OUT-OF-ORDER EXECUTION MODES||WO||08.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2016/051001||ARM LIMITED||PENTON, Anthony John|
Apparatus for processing data (2) includes issue circuitry (22) for issuing program instructions (processing operations) to execute either within real time execution circuitry (32) or non real time execution circuitry (24, 26, 28, 30). Registers within a register file (18) are marked as non real time dependent registers if they are allocated to store a data value which is to be written by an uncompleted program instruction issued to the non real time execution circuitry and not yet completed. Issue policy control circuitry (42) responds to a trigger event to enter a real time issue policy mode to control the issue circuitry (22) to issue candidate processing operations (such as program instruction, micro-operations, architecturally triggered processing operations etc.) to one of the non real time execution circuitry or the real time execution circuitry in dependence upon whether that candidate processing operation reads a register marked as a non real time dependent register.
