    A method for evaluating whether a patient is suited to chronic nerve stimulation as a therapy for pelvic floor disfunction includes acutely stimulating, for instance, the pudendal nerve, while measuring the response to such stimulation. Measurements may include pudendal nerve terminal motor latency, perineal nerve...

    The purpose of fast auto deatliliation is to enable a trunked system to quickly deafiliate radios. This will allow the trunked system to use its resources more effectively. This is achieved by monitoring the number of talkgroup members afliliated at each site. When the number of talkgroup members drops below a prede-...

    This discussion deals with an enhancement to a design methodology entitled 'Logic Circuit for ASIC Reliability and Yield Enhancement' (patent pending- docket no. SCO6873C) which provides control over the junction temperature of CMOS ASIC's, regardless of packaging technology. The general purpose behind the design...

    A sidewall spacer is used to define deep-submicron features in "slot" processes for many advanced technologies [l-3]. Optical techniques cannot be used to endpoint etches that open these narrow spaces because of the small open area. For the same reason, conven- tional inspection techniques cannot be used. A technique...

    There is a need for a common global trunking subscriber unit that does not need a unique character display, does not require special ordering information, and does not require special field programming via a programming station to be used in different environ- ments that require dierent languages. Information that is...

    In today's communication systems there are only two methods for a user that normally communicates on one trunked system to communicate with a user from another system. One method is to obtain a unique ID on the adjacent system(s) and pay for this service. The second method is for the two systems to be linked together...

    Transistors Ql and Q2 shown in the above sche- matic are the output devices of an operational amplifier that is capable of a large dynamic output voltage swing. The function of the remaining circuitry is to accurately reproduce a fraction (l/N) of the amplifier's output cur- rent (Iout) at the SENSE OUT terminal. The...

    In the past, manual workholders to hold down ceramic substrates for wirebonding has shown to be ben- eficial to obtain proper wirebonding results. Improving on prior art, a new flexible workholder was developed for various types of PCB substrates. The PC board arrays, used for glob top chip carriers, have different...

    The concept is to use a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) material as a transducer/label combination in a consumer device requiring both an audible alert and iden- tifier label. A good example product is a pager. The con- tinuing emphasis on size reduction in electronic devices has resulted in high priced miniature...
