The Abl Ip Holding Llc patent solves the following problem:

When LEDs (light emitting diodes) to replace traditional light sources, such as incandescent source, usually a desire to have the LEDs light and light effects similar to those made with traditional light sources. Dimming is an example of this. An incandescent source is a point source starting in the dark from the center. As the light increased the single source point be open to give effect to the edge of center light. Contrary to an incandescent fixture, LED light fixtures often from many source points. A typical LED fixture includes an AC to DC driver and a number of LEDs arranged in parallel and serial strings. While the driver increased his output current, all LEDs begin to emit photons simultaneously and increase the pace until full light is achieved.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Abl Ip Holding Llc’s patent US 9456478 B2 deals with System and method for controlling LED segments to provide lighting effects.
A board in the light engine includes an AC to AC step driver that selectively powers multiple LED part by controlling the tap points between the LED portion as the input voltage goes from zero crossover the maximum voltage and return to the zero crossover. The steps drivers can power a LED part, a second LED part, the first and second LED part, or none of the LED portion depending on the input voltage. The LEDs in an LED segment may share some characteristics different from an attitude shared by LEDs on the other hand, allowing the LED tools to provide a variety of lighting effects.

Dual vessel chemical modification and heating of wood with optional vapor

You’ve invested time, talent, and energy into making a dent in the universe with your invention and ideas. Now it’s time to make sure it’s protected with PowerPatent’s Utility, Provisional or Design Patent Filing Software

The Eastman Chemical Company patent solves the following problem:

Electromagnetic radiation, such as microwave radiation, is a known mechanism for delivering energy to something. The ability of electromagnetic radiation to penetrate and heat something both rapidly and effectively proved advantageous in many chemical and industrial processes. Moreover, because the use of microwave energy to a heat source is generally non-invasive, microwave heating is particularly useful in the processing of sensitive dielectric materials, such as food and medicines, and even beneficial for the material heating with a relatively poor thermal conductivity, such as wood. However, the complexities and nuances of safe and effective application of microwave energy, especially on a commercial scale, severely limited in its application to certain types of industrial processes.
