A communication device including a ground plane and an antenna element is provided. The antenna element includes a feeding portion, a first radiation portion, a second radiation portion and an adjusting portion. The first radiation portion and the feeding portion form a first resonant path, and the first radiation portion includes a first portion and a second portion. The first portion faces a first edge of the ground plane and the second portion, and the second portion extends from a second edge of the ground plane. The second radiation portion and the feeding portion form a second resonant path. The antenna element operates in a first band and a second band through the first resonant path and the second resonant path. The adjusting portion and part of the first radiation portion form a current-dividing path to adjust impedance of the antenna element operating in the second band.

A heat dissipation module used for an electronic device is provided. The electronic device has a heat source. The heat dissipation module includes an evaporator, a pipe, and a working fluid. The evaporator thermally contacts the heat source and absorbs heat generated from the heat source. The evaporator has a chamber connected to the pipe to form a loop, and the working fluid is filled in the loop. A structure of the chamber located at a connection portion between the chamber and the pipe gradually converges towards the pipe in relation to other structure of the chamber.

A heat dissipation module used for an electronic device is provided. The electronic device has a heat source. The heat dissipation module includes an evaporator, a pipe, and a working fluid. The evaporator has a recess at an exterior surface of the evaporator, and the heat source is thermally contacted with the recess to transfer a heat generated from the heat source to the recess of the evaporator. The pipe is connected to an inner space of the evaporator and forms a loop. The working fluid is filled in the loop, wherein the working fluid in liquid passing through a portion of the inner space of the evaporator corresponding to the recess absorbs the heat and is transformed into vapor.


A cellular station coupled to a Mobility Management Entity (MME) is provided. The cellular station includes a wireless transceiver and a controller. The wireless transceiver performs wireless transmission and reception to and from a plurality of wireless communication devices. The controller receives a warning message delivery request for an Earthquake and Tsunami Warning System (ETWS) from the MME, starts broadcasting a public warning message to the wireless communication devices via the wireless transceiver and sends a warning message delivery response to the MME in response to the warning message delivery request, and sends a warning status report comprising status information of one or more of the wireless communication devices to the MME.


Methods of data allocation and signal receiving, a wireless transmitting apparatus, and a wireless receiving apparatus are provided based on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technology. The wireless transmitting apparatus obtains a data stream and allocates the data stream to a first sub-carrier set. Each of the first sub-carrier set and a second sub-carrier set has sub-carriers with opposite frequencies to each other, respectively. The second sub-carrier is emptied or allocated according the data stream allocated to the first sub-carrier set. The data stream is converted into an OFDM signal transmitted through a transmitting module. The wireless receiving apparatus includes a single branch receiver for receiving a radio frequency (RF) signal and outputting a baseband signal. Subsequently, the data stream is restored from the baseband signal.


In a wireless communication system, an IOPS-capable user equipment is registered on both a normal PLMN and an IOPS PLMN. The user equipment is configured to set one of the first PLMN and the second PLMN as a primary PLMN and the other one of the first PLMN and the second PLMN as a secondary PLMN randomly, according to an MO PLMN preference provided by a user of the user equipment, or according to a dialing history of the user equipment. Therefore, PLMN precedence can be provided for the user equipment in the IOPS dual PLMN mode of operation to make MO calls.

A speaker (1, 1a, 1b, 1c) and an electronic device (90) having the speaker (1, 1a, 1b, 1c) are disclosed. The speaker (1, 1a, 1b, 1c) has a main body (10) and a cover (20, 20a). The main body (10) has a drive unit (12, 12a) and a tube (13). The tube (13) is situated at a side of the drive unit (12, 12a). The cover (20, 20a) is situated above the main body (10) for covering the tube (13) and part of the drive unit (12, 12a) such that the speaker (1, 1a, 1b, 1c) has a covered portion (121) and an uncovered portion (122). The sound produced by the covered portion (121) is output via the tube (131) along a first direction (D1). The sound produced by the uncovered portion (122) is output along a second direction (D2).


A mobile communication device including a wireless transceiver and a controller is provided. The wireless transceiver performs wireless transmission and reception to and from a cell. The controller determines whether an Application-specific Congestion control for Data Communication (ACDC) has been enabled in the cell in response to a Domain Name Server (DNS) query or Internet Protocol (IP) packet initiated by an application, and in response to the ACDC having been enabled, responds to the DNS query with an IP address or transmits the IP packet to the cell via the wireless transceiver only when the application is associated with a high-priority service.

LEMON Less Energy More OpportuNities focusses on energy investments in the Social Housing sector and involves 2 Housing Company of Emilia Romagna Region ACER Reggio Emilia and ACER Parma, launching 15,29 M of energy investments in 622 private and public social housing dwellings. The project will develop innovative, bankable and aggregated sustainable energy investment scheme based on the following aspects: - LEMON will be a pilot project for the Emilia Romagna Region Social Housing Programme, creating a new financing model for energy retrofit interventions and developing a EPC model contracts that will mobilize 15,29 million Euros of investments in social housing buildings energy retrofitting, in order to reduce the buildings energy demand. LEMON will support the investments combining different financing instruments available at National and Regional level (ERDF funds, National financing, National incentive Conto termico and loans) and in particularly it will charge part of the investment on the rents according to the reduced energy costs for the tenants. - LEMON will develop the Energy Performance Tenancy Agreement (EPTA). The contract between the tenants and the ACERs will ensure that a portion of the investments covered by ACER Reggio Emilia and ACER Parma with a loan is charged on the rents for as long as the loan is repaid, leveraging on the savings produced by the retrofit interventions. The replication of the project will be based on a wide dissemination and capacity building strategy among the social housing companies at regional and national level, and also among other sectors (City councils, Provinces, Regional, public authorities, Groups that represent e.g. Local Government Association, National public authorities, Organisations working in the field of energy efficiency, ESCos, Companies). The project results will be disseminate across Europe towards the EU networks Climate-Kic and Housing Europe.
