Benitius M Handjojo, Wenhua Li: Adaptive interlace-to-progressive scan conversion algorithm. Micronas Semiconductors, O Shea Getz & Kosakowski P C, September 6, 2005: US06940557 (71 worldwide citation)

An interlace-to-progressive scan conversion system comprises: a spatial line averaging prefilter; a motion estimator; a three-stage adaptive recursive filter. The motion estimator comprises: a 3-D recursive search sub-component having a bilinear interpolator; a motion correction sub-component having ...


Paul Werner Von Basse, Josef Willer: Method of determining very small capacitances. Micronas, Laurence A Greenberg, Werner H Stemer, Ralph E Locher, June 24, 2003: US06583632 (69 worldwide citation)

A grid of capacitor surfaces is connected to read lines and control lines. The read lines are connected alternately to the output of a feedback operational amplifier and to a collecting capacitor. The capacitances to be measured are charged repeatedly and the charges are collected on the collecting ...

Shuhua Xiang, Hongjun Yuan: Audio module supporting audio signature. Micronas USA, Mayer Brown, April 15, 2008: US07359006 (55 worldwide citation)

A system and method embed an audio signature in a video frame. An audio signature is generated from one bit a buffer input data. Two registers store an audio signature and reference count. According to an embodiment, the audio signature is generated left/right (L/R) interleaved with the left channel ...

A specimen slide (1) for a microscope, camera or other such observation device has a receiving area (2) for cell or tissue samples or other such organic material and a smaller observation area (3) for the organic material. The specimen slide (1) at least in the observation area is made of transparen ...


Matthias Vierthaler, Martin Winterer, Stefan Mueller, Thomas Hilpert, Carsten Noeske: Circuit for decoding an analog audio signal. Micronas, Samuels Gauthier & Stevens, August 28, 2001: US06281813 (45 worldwide citation)

An integrated circuit for decoding an analog audio signal includes a tuner that receives the analog audio signal and provides a sound intercarrier frequency signal. A digital demodulator receives and digitizes the sound intercarrier frequency signal to provide a digitized sound intercarrier frequenc ...
