Design and methods to package and interconnect high intensity LED devices employ tabless LED devices adjoined in alternating polarities, such that an anode of one LED device is electrically connected to a cathode of an adjoining LED device to create a series. Electrical and positional connections are affected by connectors attached to the anode or cathode by means of fasteners, thermally conductive insulators optionally present.

An apparatus for direct LED irradiation, such as using UV, has a LED package with a plurality of individual LED units, the LED package attached to a heat sink. The heat sink transmits heat from the LED units to a coolant, which is circulated away from the LEDs during use. Radiation emitted from the LED package passes through a gap defined by a housing structure enclosing the LED package and heat sink.

A light emitting diode (LED) module includes a first end cap, a second end cap and a reflector portion. The reflector portion extends longitudinally between the first end cap and the second end cap. The reflector portion includes a coolant passageway defined longitudinally through the reflector portion and is fluidically coupled to the first end cap and the second end cap. An LED package is disposed adjacent to the reflector portion. An orifice bushing can be disposed within a coolant passage defined in the first end cap to restrict coolant flow through the reflector portion to preclude starvation of coolant flow elsewhere in the LED module.

Sport is the most universal and accessible of cultural pursuits. European Traditional Sports and Games (TSG) are as diverse as our cultures. TSG organisations work tirelessly to promote participation in their sports, but also as custodians of custom, language and history. The TSG club or playing field is often the focal point of community life. Trends in globalisation have led to a convergence of spectator interest to just a few mainstream sports with culturally homogonous identities. Re-Play will focus on two families of TSG (Gaelic and Basque), that are integral to the fabric of their communities of origin and have successfully staved off this trend of convergence. Gaelic and Basque sports are also practiced internationally and experience high levels of participation amongst all genders and age groups. They also share common techniques and forms of play and thus, open the opportunity for the Re-Play project results to be applied to other TSGs. To this end Re-Play will include an advisory group of other TSG associations and its results will be made available under Open Source or Hybrid license models. Re-Play proposes a study of the biomechanics and play dynamics of a number of sports and the creation of capture methodologies which balance cost and effectiveness. The platform will use off-the shelf and sensors and leading-edge studio rigs. Such an approach will allow the styles of play of elite sportspersons (national heroes) to be captured with precision for posterity, and amateur sportspersons (local heroes) for the more routine elements of play with inexpensive setups as well as a comparison of the two approaches. Re-Play includes novel 3D rendering and interaction for coaching, teaching and entertainment to allow a user practice new basic skills and to emulate their hero. A video only approach is included to recover techniques of past players from legacy video content, thus allowing for an analysis of the evolution of the sport into the future.

An electrical machine (10) has three phase windings (12). Each phase winding (12) is connected to a respective current source (18). Each current source 18 provides alternating current to the corresponding winding (12). The current source 18 is connected independently to the respective winding (12). The electrical angles of the phase windings (12) are so arranged that none of the phase windings (12) has a zero torque angle which coincides with a zero torque angle of another phase winding (12).

An apparatus for curing substrate materials may include one or more radiation sources, a rotatable transport cylinder and a conveyor mechanism with a belt or web is disclosed. The substrate is transported by the belt or web and passes between the belt or web and the cylinder, where it is irradiated to cure the substance deposited on the substrate.

A power module for converting direct current to alternating current comprising a semiconductor switching circuit device, a substrate onto which the switching circuit device is physically and electrically coupled without wirebonds, a plurality of leadframe terminals physically and electrically coupled to the substrate, and a cover including an opening exposing a bottom side of the substrate and including a wall portion oriented generally orthogonally relative to the substrate with at least some of the leadframe terminals projecting outwardly from the wall portion. The leadframe terminals projecting outwardly from the wall portion may include an affixed portion coupled to the substrate and an extending segment lying in a plane above the affixed portion with the extending segment projecting outwardly from the wall portion and the cover encapsulating the affixed portion whereby the extending segment is spaced from a plane defined by the bottom side of the substrate.

An LED module includes a base portion, a first reflector portion secured to a first side of the base portion, a second reflector portion secured to a first side of the base portion; and an LED package disposed along the first side of the base portion. The LED package can be secured on a first end between the base portion and the first reflector portion, and on a second end between the base portion and a second reflector portion. Coolant channels can be defined through the base and reflector portions. A connector can electrically connect negative and positive terminals of adjacently located and oppositely oriented LED elements in the LED package. The reflector portions can be exchanged for other reflector portions that have a different reflector profile.

A sealed insert molded connector and method of sealing the same includes one or more inserts molded into a housing so that at least one portion of the insert extends through the housing. A bonding region is formed at the point where the insert extends through the housing. The conformal coating or sealing material is applied to the bonding region where the molded housing forms the insert creating a moisture resistant seal between the housing and the insert. The viscosity of the sealing material is chosen so that the sealing material exhibits minimum travel under the influence of gravity. A collar forming a moat or well around the bonding agent may be formed.

A motion simulation system includes actuators having a planetary gearbox engaged with and driven by a servomotor engaged with a crank. A connector rod has a proximal end engaged with the crank of each actuator, and a distal end engaged with a top plate configured to attach to a platform assembly. A control system is operable with each electric servo motor of each actuator for delivering control for providing a simulated motion to the top plate. Control data is sent to the servomotors using a msec data send and receive rate, with internal processing within the nano-second range. Such update rates coupled with a real time, dynamically responsive motion controller results in a desirably smooth and accurate simulator motion. The control system includes a washout filter for transforming input forces and rotational movements. One to six degrees of freedom systems having smooth performance with high payload capability are provided.
