A method for processing data in a configurable unit having a multidimensional cell arrangement a switching table is provided, the switching table including a controller and a configuration memory. Configuration strings are transmitted from the switching table to a configurable element of the unit to ...

Martin Vorbach, Robert Munch: Method for the automatic address generation of modules within clusters comprised of a plurality of these modules. PACTGmbH, Kenyon & Kenyon, March 14, 2000: US06038650 (66 worldwide citation)

A method of automatic address generation by units within clusters of a plurality of such units in which individual configurable elements of a unit can be addressed. It is thus possible to address the individual elements directly for reconfiguration. This is a prerequisite for being able to reconfigu ...

Michael Shannon Davis, Bruce Robert Munch: Panel for forming on-site a multi-function channel for being self-retaining between, and by, a pair of parallel, adjacent, and spaced-apart framing members without a need for fasteners. Bernard S Hoffman, June 29, 2004: US06754995 (12 worldwide citation)

A panel for forming on-site a multi-function channel. The panel is a sheet of material that is rectangular-shaped, slightly compressible, thermally insulating, and has a pair of pre-printed channel flange fold lines that extend the entire length thereof and which form a pair of channel flanges when ...

Robert Munch: Method of coating an electronic component. Schlumberger, Frishauf Holtz Goodman Langer & Chick P C, December 16, 1997: US05697149 (3 worldwide citation)

A technique of coating an electronic component with a resin. A semiconductor chip is placed on an insulating film carrying electric contacts to which the semiconductor chip is connected by connection wires passing through holes formed in the insulating film. The holes in the insulating film are plac ...

Martin Vorbach, Robert Munch: Multi-core processor having disabled cores. Pact XPP Technologies, Edward P Heller III, December 16, 2014: US08914690
