    Described is a method for removing inner board heat using a socketed printed circuit board (PCB) with a mating, highly-conductive heat spreader. Regions of high conductivity within the board would have strategically placed sockets that allow for an external member to be inserted in to it. Such an external member...

    Power gating is indispensable in present generation multi-core SOCs with high performance and low power requirements to reduce the standby leakage power. In newer technologies and/or newer designs, there could be failures in power gating structure. This will prevent the power gated core from either powering-up or...

    Packaging pressure sensors is a challenge. The pressure sensor die cannot be entirely covered with the mold compound. There need to be an opening to expose the diaphragm of the pressure sensor die, without which impedes the functionality of the die. There are not many differentiations in the industry on pressure...

    Disclosed is a Power Distribution Units (PDUs) that assists the customer/user in determining the most efficient method for PDU outlet utilization. The PDU measures the current per outlet and voltage drops at various points along the distribution path and then, based on this data, reports to the user an alternate...
