(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 3 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Illinois.

*** Kinze Manufacturing Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 3 -- Kinze Manufacturing, Williamsburg, Iowa, has been assigned a patent (8,448,585) developed by Matthew Wilhelmi, Parnell, Iowa, Kenneth E. Shoup, Benfield, Ill., and Daniel Koop, Parnell, Iowa, for an "air entertainment device for seed delivery." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A seed delivery device including a frame defining at least one seed chamber. The frame includes a sidewall and an air permeable floor. Seed can be received and deposited on the air permeable floor through an input port. An air input channel is utilized to introduce an air stream into the seed chamber and direct it through the air permeable floor such that seed is lifted from the air permeable floor to an outlet port. An air bypass channel is configured to separate the air stream into a first stream that is directed through the air permeable floor and a second stream that is directed through the bypass channel and recombined with the first stream, at a point prior to the output port, to prevent excess accumulation of seed in the seed chamber." The patent application was filed on July 2, 2010 (12/829,654).

The location of the perimeter is programmed into the tether device by providing distance and angular coordinates of the distal end of the tether from the tether device. The location of the pet, once attached to the tether device is likewise determined by the combination of coordinates. When the microcontroller senses the pet is nearing the perimeter of the pre-defined area, a lock mechanism is activated which prevents further movement in a direction that will exceed the perimeter, and only allows movement of the pet away from the perimeter. The lock mechanism may have a cushioning mechanism to prevent a hard stop. The tether device can also generate alarm tones to alert the user and/or train the pet."

*** Tellabs Operations Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 3 -- Tellabs Operations, Naperville, Ill., has been assigned a patent (8,449,203) developed by Thomas John Downs, Hinsdale, Ill., for a "cooling method for CXP active optical transceivers." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "CXP is a telecommunications connector standard based on cage assemblies originally designed for copper cables. Optical transceivers dissipate more heat than copper cables, however, so cage assemblies designed for copper cables cannot remove heat adequately for proper transceiver operation. One embodiment of the inventive cage assemblies removes heat from an optical transceiver with a heat spreader, which protrudes through an aperture in a cage, and a compressible gap pad in thermal contact with the heat spreader. Inserting the optical transceiver into the cage places the transceiver in thermal contact with a heat spreader and pushes the heat spreader out of the cage, which, in turn, causes the gap pad to come into thermal contact with a heat pipe and/or a heat sink. The embodiment provide a low mechanical profile to support high-density circuit board configurations for high-density optical connectivity systems, such as used in Dense Wavelength Division optical networking." The patent application was filed on Sept. 2, 2010 (12/807,364).

Between injection events, the needle control chamber is fluidly connected to the fuel inlet by a first pathway that includes a Z orifice, and fluidly connected to the fuel inlet by a second pathway that includes an F orifice, an intermediate chamber and an A orifice. During an injection event, the needle control chamber is fluidly connected to a drain outlet by a third pathway that includes the A orifice, the intermediate chamber and an E orifice. Different performance characteristics are achieved by adjusting the sizes of the respective of F, A, Z and E orifices." The patent application was filed on Nov. 8, 2010 (12/941,355). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,448,878.PN.&OS=PN/8,448,878&RS=PN/8,448,878 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
