    Current pager designs offer the user control of numerous functions of the pager. This includes turning the unit on and off as well as manipulating the pager's memory and selecting specific options. However, having access to the on/off switch can cause numerous problems to occur. If a person forgets to turn off the...

    Commercial tape and reels have bar code labels on them. The operator will scan the reel and the feeder, then the computer data base would compare the two and gives the operator feedback whether the reel and the feeder match. This system is not full proof. After scanning the pair, the reel could still be incorrectly...

    Since displays are becoming very small and compact, such as in pagers or watches for example, a method is need- ed to enhance their readability, particularly in a dimly lit area. This method suggests the use of a multicolor E.L. panel to illuminate different portions of a liquid crystal display, in different colors,...

    A manually trimmable capacitor is often subjected to damage if the operator who tuned it applies too much force on the part. Also, excess compression during the tuning process leads to possible drift in capacitance values (from the set value) due to after tuning stress relaxation. Sometimes, when the part is partially...

    This idea can be applied to both current art multiple slide switches that have a momentary contact function incor- porated, or to switch knob covers that are used as environmental protection to the switch component. This design idea is used to prevent any accidental momentary contact function while sliding the switch...

    For low profile LCD pagers the problem is to develop a very low profiled diffuser that allows the end user to perceive an evenly lit LCD display. Commonly the diffusers are optic clear plastics with a light source entry point, usually a flat plane. This poses a problem in that, a) it does not optimize light entry, and...
