Noise reduction system for computers leads to patent for Cy-Fair-area man
A man from the Cy-Fair area has received a U.S. patent for a noise reduction system for computers he and a Houston team developed for Hewlett-Packard.
The system described in the patent uses a resonator to help lessen noise from a computer's fan. The inventors write that it would be particularly useful in data centers and other places with large banks of computers.
The inventors named in the patent are all from Houston. Punan Tang is from the Clear Lake area, Thomas P. Jasso lives in Aldine and Mohammed I. Chowdhury is from the Cy-Fair area.
The patent was originally filed on June 15, 2006, and was approved on Feb. 22 of this year. Its official number is 7,891,464. HP owns the patent.
While its international headquarters are in Palo Alto, California, Houston serves as the nerve center of its U.S. division. It is located in the Cy-Fair area at 20555 SH 249.
