Edward J Nowak, Minh H Tong: High reliability I/O stacked fets. International Business Machines Corporation, Howard J Walter Esq, Whitham Curtis & Whitham, February 23, 1999: US05874836 (115 worldwide citation)

The effects on device reliability of across chip length variation (ACLV), gate ion channeling and dislocation are reduced or eliminated in input/output (I/O) stacked field effect transistors (FETs). A pair of stacked PFETs and a pair of stacked NFETs are connected to an I/O pad. The PFET and the NFE ...

Kazunari Shimohara: Remote control signal processing circuit for a microcomputer. NEC Corporation, Whitham Curtis Whitham & McGinn, July 25, 1995: US05436853 (113 worldwide citation)

A remote control signal processing circuit uses hardware to check the pulse of the remote control signal, detect the leader code, and make "0" or "1" judgment for status code or data code. Based on the edge detection signals given by the edge detection circuit to detect the leading and trailing edge ...

Naoyasu Ikeda: Current-dependent light-emitting element drive circuit for use in active matrix display device. NEC Corporation, Whitham Curtis & Whitham, January 4, 2000: US06011529 (110 worldwide citation)

In a light-emitting element drive circuit in an active matrix display device, at least one current-control transistor controls a current flowing through a light-emitting element. The current-control transistor and the light-emitting element are connected in parallel to each other. A constant current ...

The present invention is a method of controlling a robotic mechanism comprising both active and passive joints, where the motion of one or more of the passive joints is constrained by one or more constraints imposed on the mechanism by the environment, the mechanical construction of the mechanism or ...

Kiyoshi Nikawa: Semiconductor device evaluation system using optical fiber. NEC Corporation, Whitham Curtis & Whitham, February 22, 2000: US06028435 (107 worldwide citation)

In a system for evaluating a semiconductor device, a laser beam generating unit generates a laser beam, and an optical fiber receives the laser beam to heat an area of the semiconductor device. A current deviation detector or a voltage deviation detector is connected to a terminal of the semiconduct ...

Chengjun Julian Chen, Liam David Comerford, Catalina Maria Danis, Satya Dharanipragada, Michael Daniel Monkowski, Peder Andreas Olsen, Michael Alan Picheny: Method and apparatus for error correction in a continuous dictation system. International Business Machines Corporation, Robert P Tassinari Esq, Whitham Curtis & Whitham, January 26, 1999: US05864805 (107 worldwide citation)

A continuous speech recognition system has the ability to correct errors in strings of words. The error correction method stores data in the system's internal state to update probability tables used in developing alternative lists for substitution in misrecognized text.
