Jente B Kuang, John P Pennings, George E Smith III, Michael H Wood: SOI FET body contact structure. International Business Machines Corporation, Lynn L Augspurger, Venable, January 23, 2001: US06177708 (139 worldwide citation)

A self-aligned SOI FET device with an ā€œLā€ shaped gate structure allows an integral diode junction to be formed between the source and the body of the device. Two devices with this gate geometry can be advantageously placed side-by-side in a single rx opening that could accommodate but a single devic ...

Robert C Gardner, David E Silverglate, Greg P Smestad, George E Smith, John F Snyder: Nonimaging light source. Hewlett Packard Company, March 19, 1991: US05001609 (82 worldwide citation)

The principles of non-imaging optics, rather than imaging optics, are used to provide a high power LED illumination lamp that has a specified limited viewing angle. A compound parabolic flux extractor extracts and concentrates light emitted by an LED chip and a light pipe continues the concentration ...

Robert C Gardner, George E Smith, Cheryl L McLeod: High efficiency lamp or light accepter. Hewlett Packard Company, October 8, 1991: US05055892 (81 worldwide citation)

A lamp has a reflective cup with a light emitting device in the bottom of the cup. A transparent material having an index of refraction n fills the cup and extends to a hemispherical surface with radius R and an equator parallel to the opening of the cup. The reflective walls of the cup project subs ...

Wilson Dau, Robert Gardner, George Lerman, Louis Lerman, Chris Lowery, Brian D Ogonowsky, George E Smith, Ingo Speier, Robert Steele, Jacqueline Teng, Allan Brent York: Solid-state luminaire. Quarkstar, Fish & Richardson P C, November 5, 2013: US08573823 (44 worldwide citation)

In one embodiment, a solid-state luminaire has a strip of high power LEDs, where each LED emits light into an optical coupler. Light from the optical coupler is then coupled into a light guide. Light coupled into the light guide is mixed and guided to an exit aperture of the light guide. An optical ...

George E Smith: Nonimaging light source. Hewlett Packard Company, October 16, 1990: US04964025 (42 worldwide citation)

The principles of nonimaging optics, rather than imaging optics, are used to provide an asymmetrical flux extraction cup for an LED illumination lamp that has an asymmetrical limited viewing angle or cutoff angle. The cup has a flat section in the bottom normal to the optical axis, for attachment of ...

Joseph R Cavaliere, George E Smith III: Current switch logic circuit with controlled output signal levels. International Business Machines Corporation, Otho B Ross III, January 16, 1990: US04894562 (31 worldwide citation)

A current switch emitter-follower logic circuit allows both the UP output logic level and the DOWN output logic level to be independently controlled with respect to a fixed reference voltage so as to permit very small output level swings. A feedback circuit generates two different control signals wh ...
