  1. Four-Quadrant Resonant Drive with Ports for Other Electrical Equipment

    SBC: Electronic Power            Topic: N/A

    A new quasi-resonant converter, called the unipolar series resonant converter ("USRC"), will be adapted as a four-quadrant drive for electric vehicles ("EVs"). With zero current and voltage switching, it will high modulation frequency (over 30 khz), thus driving a motor silently and efficiently throughout the speed range. The USRC produces any waveform required by any type of EV motor. It produces ...

  2. Design of Superelastic Nitinol Enhanced Puncture Resistant Armor

    SBC: Garman Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed is an investigation into the use of flexible, extremely strong and tough, superelastic Nitinol shape memory alloy as a means of dramatically improving puncture resistance for personnel body armor. The Nitinol material is proposed as a surface material or coating for reinforcement or organic fiber fabrics and/or composites or aramid and UHMW polyethylene used in the current body armor sys ...

  3. Integrated Remote Patient Care System

    SBC: Microdexterity Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MicroDexterity Systems was founded by Steve Charles, MD to develop systems for dexterity enhancement for microsurgery; a concept he originated in the mid 80's. Dexterity enhancement is a subset of tele-operation. The MDS mission statement was broadened in 1994 to address the problem of non-ferromagnetic tele-operation for intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging frequently called image guided ...

  4. Integrating Decision-Theoretic Design Rationale into Design Team Workflow

    SBC: Prevision Inc            Topic: N/A

    Software design, development, and maintenance constitute a complex and time-intensive process. Early design decisions can have a crucial impact on both quality and cost. Design rationale tools have been shown to be effective in supporting this process, but are infrequently used due to their interference with normal design team workflow. The rapid growth of new network and web-mediated workstyle ...

  5. Improved Reference Sources for Low-Bit Error Rate Communication In Digital Wireless and Fiber Optic Systems

    SBC: Redpoint Microwave, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A fundamental component responsible for low bit error rate (BER) is the phase jitter of the frequency reference source, regardless if a network is wireless or fiber optic in nature. In the case of wireless the frequency reference source is typically a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), and in the fiber optic case it is a clock. In order to maximize the full benefit of spread spectrum technique ...
