  • Patent number: 10615928
    Abstract: Various embodiments of a scheme of dynamic activation and release of carrier aggregation in an LTE-Advanced system are provided. When transmission need of an LTE-Advanced user is large and the user is within coverage of at least one secondary component carrier, carrier aggregation is activated while a certain amount of resource of each component carrier is preserved to support carrier aggregation. This avoids unnecessary activation and waste due to signaling cost. When the primary component carrier of an LTE-Advanced user has sufficient resource to satisfy transmission need of the user or when the user is not within coverage of at least one secondary component carrier, carrier aggregation is released. This minimizes complex measurement and cost of controlling signals due to multi-carrier scheduling.

  • Patent number: 10534684
    Abstract: Techniques described herein generally relate to a task management system for a chip multiprocessor having multiple processor cores. The task management system tracks the changing instruction set capabilities of each processor core and selects processor cores for use based on the tracked capabilities. In this way, a processor core with one or more failed processing elements can still be used effectively, since the processor core may be selected to process instruction sets that do not use the failed processing elements.

  • Patent number: 10535196
    Abstract: Technologies are described for indicating a geographic origin of a digitally-mediated communication relative to a location of a recipient by presenting the indication in an augmented reality scene. For example, an augmented reality scene can be presented to the recipient. The geographic origin of an incoming digital communication may be determined and a relative location of the origin with respect to the recipient's location may be computed. A format for presenting the relative location may be derived from the digital communication and the geographic origin. The augmented reality scene may be updated with the relative location based on the derived format.

  • Publication number: 20190370175
    Abstract: Techniques described herein generally include methods and systems related to cache partitioning in a chip multiprocessor. Cache-partitioning for a single thread or application between multiple data sources improves energy or latency efficiency of a chip multiprocessor by exploiting variations in energy cost and latency cost of the multiple data sources. Partition sizes for each data source may be selected using an optimization algorithm that minimizes or otherwise reduces latencies or energy consumption associated with cache misses.

  • Patent number: 10467212
    Abstract: Technologies related to multiple variable coverage memory for database indexing are generally described. Disclosed methods may be performed to implement high-speed database access to digital service provider customer data as the digital service provider builds an optimized index for a database. Initially, the digital service provider may maintain an appropriate level of service by keeping a relatively slow performing, basic index in a relatively high performance first memory. As the digital service provider builds the optimized index, the digital service provider may maintain the appropriate level of service by gradually shifting from use of the first memory to the use of a relatively lower performance second memory.

  • Patent number: 10445287
    Abstract: Techniques described herein generally include methods and systems related to circuit switching in a network-on-chip. According to embodiments of the disclosure, a network-on-chip may include routers configured to pre-reserve circuit-switched connections between a source node and a destination node before requested data are available for transmission from the source node to the destination node. Because the circuit-switched connection is already established between the source node and the destination node when the requested data are available for transmission from the source node, the data can be transmitted without the delay or with reduced delay caused by setup overhead of the circuit-switched connection. A connection setup message may be transmitted together with a memory request from the destination node to facilitate pre-reservation of the circuit-switched connection.

  • Patent number: 10445131
    Abstract: A processor may comprise a plurality of cores operating at heterogeneous frequencies communicatively coupled by a network of routers also operating at heterogeneous frequencies. A core may be prioritized for thread execution based on operating frequencies of routers on a path from the core to a memory controller. Relatively higher priority may be assigned to cores having a path comprising only routers operating at a relatively higher frequency. A combined priority for thread execution may be based on core frequency, router frequency, and the frequency of routers on a path from the core to a memory controller. A core may be selected based primarily on core operating frequency when cache misses fall below a threshold value.
