Power plant

To provide a power plant which is capable of reducing power passing through a distributing and combining device, thereby making it possible to attain reduction of the size and manufacturing costs of the power plant and enhance driving efficiency of the same. The power plant 1 for driving driven parts DW and DW includes a prime mover 3, a first distributing and combining device 20 having first, second and third elements 21, 24 and 22, a second distributing and combining device 30 having fourth, fifth and sixth elements 31, 34 and 32, and speed-changing devices 40, 50, 2, 61 and 62 which are connected to the third and sixth elements 22 and 32 and are capable of changing the relationship between the rotational speed of the third element and that of the sixth element 32. The second and fourth elements 24 and 31 are mechanically connected to an output shaft 3a of the prime mover 3, and the first and fifth elements 21 and 34 are mechanically connected to the driven parts DW and DW.

Reversible resistive memory using polysilicon diodes as program selectors

Embodiments of reversible resistive memory cells using polysilicon diodes are disclosed. The programmable resistive devices can be fabricated using standard CMOS logic processes to reduce cell size and cost. In one embodiment, polysilicon diodes can be used as program selectors for reversible resistive memory cells that can be programmed based on magnitude, duration, voltage-limit, or current-limit of a supply voltage or current. These cells are PCRAM, RRAM, CBRAM, or other memory cells that have a reversible resistive element coupled to a polysilicon diode. The polysilicon diode can be constructed by P+/N+ implants on a polysilicon substrate as a program selector. The memory cells can be used to construct a two-dimensional memory array with the N-terminals of the diodes in a row connected as a wordline and the reversible resistive elements in a column connected as a bitline. By applying a voltage or a current to a selected bitline and to a selected wordline to turn on the diode, a selected cell can be programmed into different states reversibly based on magnitude, duration, voltage-limit, or current-limit. The data in the reversible resistive memory can also be read by turning on a selected wordline to couple a selected bitline to a sense amplifier. The wordlines may have high-resistivity local wordlines coupled to low-resistivity global wordlines through conductive contact(s) or via(s).

Hybrid power relay

Hybrid power relay used for opening or closing electrical circuits, including an electrical contact having a mechanical movement, a semiconductor component in parallel with the electrical contact, and a control unit which in response to a logic input level causes the electrical contact to close (open) and the semiconductor component to be turned on. The control unit generates a contact-make signal for closing the contact, and a control signal that turn on the semiconductor component for a predetermined period of time. The control signal prevents the semiconductor component from being turned on after the predetermined period if the electrical contact fails to close so that the semiconductor component is undamaged. Also, the control unit generates a contact-break signal for opening the electrical contact, and turning on the semiconductor component before the electrical contact has opened by means of a control signal which terminates at the end of a second predetermined period after the electrical contact has opened.

Optical transceiver module

There are provided a downsized and low-cost optical module used as a terminal for wavelength multiplexing optical transmission and one-core bidirectional optical transmission which transmits lights of plural wavelengths through one optical fiber, and a method of manufacturing the optical module. A base on which plural optical elements are mounted, and an optical multiplexer and demultiplexer having wavelength selection filters and mirrors formed on both surfaces of a substrate are prepared. Those two parts are packed into a package so that an optical element mounted surface and a filter surface are substantially parallel to each other, and the optical elements are arranged to emit or receive lights obliquely to the base. With this configuration, because the optical multiplexer and demultiplexer can be mounted in parallel to an X-Y plane, a package can be easily machined by using a lathe, thereby enabling a reduction in the costs.

Small packaged tunable laser transmitter

A tunable laser transmitter configured in a small package subassembly coupled to a printed circuit board. The tunable laser transmitter includes a housing with a volume formed by exterior walls. An electrical input interface is positioned at the first end of the housing. A first and a second optical output interface is positioned at the second end of the housing, the first output being configured to transmit a modulated optical beam, and the second output configured to transmit a cw beam to the local oscillator of an external receiver.
