WO/2015/147810 FRACTURE MECHANICS BASED METHOD FOR COMPOSITE DAMAGE TOLERANCE CRITERIA||WO||01.10.2015|
||PCT/US2014/031800||SIKORSKY AIRCRAFT CORPORATION||CHEN, Yih-Farn|
A system and method to substantiate safe-life criteria of a structure with an anomaly includes a flaw in a critical loaded region of a test structure; a processor; and memory having instructions stored thereon that, when executed by the processor, cause the system to receive first signals indicative of strain energy release rates (SERR) for the flaw at the critical loaded region of a test structure; fit the first signals for the flaw SERR to a Benzeggah-Kenane (B-K) mixed mode curve shape; determine values indicative of B-K criteria of the test structure in response to the fitting of the first signals; receive second signals indicative of SERR for the production structure; and compare the second signals with the B-K criteria of the test structure to substantiate the safe-life criteria.
WO/2015/147826 MAGNETIC POSITION INDICATOR FOR MINIATURE CIRCUIT BREAKER HANDLE||WO||01.10.2015|
||PCT/US2014/031980||SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC USA, INC.||MITTELSTADT, Chad|
The status monitoring system for a circuit breaker (100) includes a movable handle (110) with a magnet (112), a magnetic sensor (140) and a processor (150). The magnet is movable with the handle. The magnetic sensor is arranged in proximity to the handle, and is used to sense a magnetic field produced from the magnet of the handle. The processor receives information of the sensed magnetic field from the magnetic sensor and determines a status of the circuit breaker based on the sensed magnetic field which relates to a position of the handle. The status of the circuit breaker may include a handle position (e.g., ON, OFF or TRIPPED position), a handle velocity or a handle acceleration. A diagnosis of breaker functionality may then be reported.
WO/2015/147832 MULTIPLEXOR LOGIC FUNCTIONS IMPLEMENTED WITH CIRCUITS HAVING TUNNELING FIELD EFFECT TRANSISTORS (TFETS)||WO||01.10.2015|
||PCT/US2014/032019||INTEL CORPORATION||MORRIS, Daniel H.|
Multiplexor circuits with Tunneling field effect transistors (TFET) devices are described. For example, a multiplexor circuit includes a first set of tunneling field effect transistor (TFET) devices that are coupled to each other. The first set of TFET devices receive a first data input signal, a first select signal, and a second select signal. A second set of TFET devices are coupled to each other and receive a second data input signal, the first select signal, and the second select signal. An output terminal is coupled to the first and second set of TFETs. The output terminal generates an output signal of the multiplexor circuit.
WO/2015/147837 USING DEMAND SIDE RESOURCES TO PROVIDE FREQUENCY REGULATION USING A DYNAMIC ALLOCATION OF ENERGY RESOURCES||WO||01.10.2015|
||PCT/US2014/032049||BATTELLE MEMORIAL INSTITUE||THORNTON, Douglas|
Dispatch engines service endpoints by transmitting dispatch signals to the serviced endpoints that cause the endpoints to adjust their electric power consumption from the electric power grid in accord with a control signal received by the dispatch engine. A market interface dispatch engine receives its control signal from an electric power grid managing entity, and downstream dispatch engines form a hierarchy cascading downstream from the market interface dispatch engine with each downstream dispatch engine being an endpoint serviced by a dispatch engine located upstream in the hierarchy. The control signal received by each downstream dispatch engine comprises dispatch signals transmitted by the upstream dispatch engine. The endpoints further include electric power consuming loads. A suitable load controller comprises separate power interface and logic elements operatively connected to define the load controller, with the logic element powered by low voltage DC power received from the power interface element.

||PCT/US2014/032063||INTEL IP CORPORATION||HAREUVENI, Ofer|
Some demonstrative embodiments include apparatuses, systems and/or methods of selecting a wireless communication channel to communicate in a wireless communication network. For example, a wireless communication device may include a channel selector to determine a plurality of channel grades of a respective plurality of potential wireless communication channels, the channel selector to determine a channel grade of the plurality of channel grades according to a weighted function of a plurality of channel assessment parameters corresponding to a potential wireless communication channel of the plurality of potential wireless communication channels, wherein the channel selector is to select, based on the plurality of channel grades, a selected wireless communication channel from the plurality of potential wireless communication channels; and a radio to communicate over the selected wireless communication channel.
WO/2015/147843 PRECURSOR AND PROCESS DESIGN FOR PHOTO-ASSISTED METAL ATOMIC LAYER DEPOSITION (ALD) AND CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD)||WO||01.10.2015|
||PCT/US2014/032073||INTEL CORPORATION||BLACKWELL, James M.|
Precursor and process design for photo-assisted metal atomic layer deposition (ALD) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is described. In an example, a method of fabricating a thin metal film involves introducing precursor molecules proximate to a surface on or above a substrate, each of the precursor molecules having one or more metal centers surrounded by ligands. The method also involves depositing a metal layer on the surface by dissociating the ligands from the precursor molecules using a photo-assisted process.
WO/2015/147874 MECHANISMS OF VIRTUAL CLEAR CHANNEL ASSESSMENT FOR WI-FI DEVICES||WO||01.10.2015|
||PCT/US2014/032239||INTEL IP CORPORATION||HUANG, Po-Kai|
Described are methods and devices for increasing the efficiency of Wi-Fi networks by increased spatial reuse, which refers to sharing the same wireless spectral resources over different spatial regions. A described technique for doing this is for a Wi-Fi device to increase the threshold of the clear channel assessment (CCA) so as to ignore and regard as interference the transmissions from other devices. The sensing range of the Wi-Fi device then decreases, and the spatial resource can be reused by different Wi-Fi devices in different spatial locations.
WO/2015/147802 III-N TRANSISTORS WITH EPITAXIAL LAYERS PROVIDING STEEP SUBTHRESHOLD SWING||WO||01.10.2015|
||PCT/US2014/031741||INTEL CORPORATION||THEN, Han Wui|
III-N transistors with epitaxial semiconductor heterostructures having steep subthreshold slope are described. In embodiments, a III-N HFET employs a gate stack with balanced and opposing III-N polarization materials. Overall effective polarization of the opposing III-N polarization materials may be modulated by an external field, for example associated with an applied gate electrode voltage. In embodiments, polarization strength differences between the III-N materials within the gate stack are tuned by composition and/or film thickness to achieve a desired transistor threshold voltage (Vt). With polarization strengths within the gate stack balanced and opposing each other, both forward and reverse gate voltage sweeps may generate a steep sub-threshold swing in drain current as charge carriers are transferred to and from the III-N polarization layers and the III-N channel semiconductor.
