    This invention provides generation of a new set of low-discrepancy points which can be easily obtained. Low-discrepancy point sets, such as Hammersley sequences and good lattice points, are very efficient for calculating approximate values of integrals of certain classes of functions defined on the multi-dimensional...

    This article relates generally to personal computer programming and, more particularly, to apparatus for altering a variety of electrically programmable read-only memories (EPROMs). The addition of an adapter and circuit card externally of a personal computer enables more convenient verification and alteration of...

    A method is described which reduces the cost of platen manufacturing. By using the blow molding process, a structure the shape of a typewriter or printer platen can be economically manufactured. If a desired coefficiency of friction cannot be achieved with the blown material, a secondary layer can be added using...

    This article describes a method of detecting errors in a space switch arising from faults in one or more input or output lines. In the disclosed technique, knowledge of the permutation function performed by the switch is not required. A space switch is a device that maps an input binary n-tuple to an output binary...

    This article describes a technique for operating a personal computer (PC) network at lower than usual power levels, while avoiding intermodulation distortion characteristically expected for such operation. The latter result is achieved by insertion of filters in reception and transmission paths between each network...

    A method has been developed for curtailing the dip which occurs in wide open areas of semiconductor devices during fully recessed oxide isolation planarization. The new approach uses a re-flow glass as the planarization fill material and a mask to remove excess material so planarization can take place in a short...

    Personal computers contain a Basic Input Output System (BIOS) which provides routines to service the computer hardware. Access to this support is through documented interfaces structured within software interrupt routines, and such routines are placed in Read-Only Memory (ROM). The routines are designed to support...

    Image data generally originates at a camera or an array of sensors. Image data can also originate from computer simulations. The demand for storage, processing and transmission of image data is increasing very rapidly. High performance and/or special processors are built to process image data, but the high data rates...

    A technique is described whereby a 3-1/2-inch diameter magnetic disk drive mechanism may be installed in a position provided for a 5-1/4- inch diameter magnetic disk drive mechanism, through the use of an interface assembly and a circuit adapter card. The interface assembly consists of a tray assembly, with a pair of...

    This publication describes a technique to improve the electromigration life-time by reducing extrusion-shorts in fine line interconnects and electrical opens on anode contact pads. In the Al-Cu fine line interconnects, electromigration-induced failure mainly comes from void-opens because it occurs at an earlier time...
