Both the QMR and QBR series are equipped with a new cabinet design featuring smaller bezels and a more symmetric design.
The new circuit design also has another benefit: its fractally symmetric design allows the modules to be cut along boundaries between symmetric areas to provide exactly the voltage and power needed for a specific application.
Following a symmetric design language can do wonders, something that we have previously seen at work in the MINI Cooper D .
First, symmetric design ensures resonant features unaffected when assembled in multilayer systems.
The CQ's symmetric design is totally enclosed with a rugged, waterproof housing which contains a helical mechanism that transforms linear piston motion into 90[degrees] (+/-5[degrees]) rotation for the operation of quarter-turn valves.
Their symmetric design and higher power handling also provide flexibility in signal routing for higher power TD-SCDMA/TDD-LTE, WCDMA/FDD, and LTE transmit/ receive functions.
(2001a), in a simulation scenario based on real black smoke data and an unmeasured confounding variable that generated long-term trend but no seasonality, compared unidirectional with symmetric design, using different numbers of control periods and at different intervals from the event period, as well as the influence of autocorrelation (correlation of a temporal series variable with its own previous or posterior values) between control periods and overlapping (bias resulting from the use of incorrect referent periods), and concluded that the symmetric CCO design performed better, with less bias when the distance of the control periods from the event was 7 days and when autocorrelation and overlapping were avoided.
The new product has a spindle head, which features a compact and symmetric design for thermal stability and rigidity.
The settlements are unmistakable with their red-tiled roofs and their symmetric design. In contrast to the Palestinian villages, the settlements and outposts look very out of place and in disharmony with the landscape.
The spindle head features a symmetric design for thermal stability and rigidity, and the 45[degrees] wedge design increases the tool-mounting envelope and improves chip flow, according to the manufacturer.
For simplicity of the optimization calculus a symmetric design of the structure was chosen.
If so, you have created a symmetric design. Describe how you could create a design with more than one line of symmetry.
