  • Patent number: 8301917
    Abstract: A processing system may include a first processing unit for a legacy partition and a second processing unit for a sequestered partition. In one embodiment, a first interrupt handler in the legacy partition may support power management for the first processing unit. A second interrupt handler in the sequestered partition may cause the sequestered partition to take control of power management hardware in the processing system when the legacy partition enters reduced power mode. For example, the second interrupt handler may program the power management hardware to route interrupts to the second processing unit. The sequestered partition may relinquish control of power management hardware to the legacy partition when the legacy partition exits reduced power mode. A power policy manager in the sequestered partition may support features such as wake for incoming communications, wake to record, etc. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 8292890
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a bone dilator designed for treating compression fracture of vertebral body, and fractures of cancellous bones at other sites. The bone dilator comprises a head portion, a neck portion, a connecting tube, a handle and a rotary hilt. The head portion embodies different shapes for use at different locations. When the rotary hilt is rotated clockwise and the pull rod is pulled backwards, the upper and the lower parts of the head portion keep parallel or at a predetermined angle during expanding. When the rotary hilt is rotated counterclockwise and the pull rod is pushed forwards, the head portion and the neck portion completely join together, the distal end of the pull rod and the bar stays are completely or partially retracted in grooves inside the head portion and the neck portion.

  • Patent number: 8296748
    Abstract: A method to provide effective control and data flow information in an Intermediate Representation (IR) form. A Path Sensitive single Assignment (PSA) IR form with effective and explicit control and data path information supports control flow sensitive optimizations such as path sensitive symbolic substitution, array privatization and speculative multi threading. In the definition of PSA form, besides defining new versioned variables, the gamma functions keep control path information. The gamma function in PSA form keeps the basic attribute of SSA IR form and only one definition exists for each use. Therefore, all existing Single Static Assignment (SSA) IR form based analysis can be applied in PSA form. The gamma function in PSA form keeps all essential control flow information and eliminates unnecessary predicates at the same time.

  • Patent number: 8295335
    Abstract: Techniques are described that provide uplink power control techniques that can support different uplink multi-input multi-output (MIMO) transmission schemes. A mobile station determines a Signal to Interference-plus-Noise Ratio based on base and offset values transmitted from a base station. The base station can transmit the base and offset values using seven bits total. The mobile station determines an uplink transmitter power level based on the Signal to Interference-plus-Noise Ratio.

  • Patent number: RE43757
    Abstract: A mechanical scanning stage for high speed image acquisition in a focused beam system. The mechanical scanning stage preferably is a combination of four stages. A first stage provides linear motion. A second stage, above the first stage, provides rotational positioning. A third stage above the rotational stage is moveable in a first linear direction, and the fourth stage above the third stage is positionable in a second linear direction orthogonal to the first direction. The four stages are responsive to input from a controller programmed with a polar coordinate pixel addressing method, for positioning a specimen mounted on the mechanical stage to allow an applied static focus beam to irradiate selected areas of interest, thereby imaged by collecting signals from the specimen using a polar coordinate pixel addressing method.
