  • Publication number: 20180206032
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to a system for voice capture via nasal vibration sensing. A system worn by a user may be able to sense vibrations through the nose of the user when the user speaks, generate an electronic signal based on the sensed vibration and generate voice data based on the electronic signal. In this manner, the system may capture a user's voice while also screening out external noise (e.g., based on the sound dampening properties of the human skull). An example system may include a wearable frame (e.g., eyeglass frame) on which is mounted at least one sensor and a device. The at least one sensor may sense vibration in the nose of a user and may generate the electronic signal based on the vibration. The device may receive the electronic signal from the at least one sensor and may generate voice data based on the electronic signal.

  • Patent number: 10026649
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for providing a decoupled via fill. Given a via trench, a first barrier layer is conformally deposited onto the bottom and sidewalls of the trench. A first metal fill is blanket deposited into the trench. The non-selective deposition is subsequently recessed so that only a portion of the trench is filled with the first metal. The previously deposited first barrier layer is removed along with the first metal, thereby re-exposing the upper sidewalls of the trench. A second barrier layer is conformally deposited onto the top of the first metal and the now re-exposed trench sidewalls. A second metal fill is blanket deposited into the remaining trench. Planarization and/or etching can be carried out as needed for subsequent processing. Thus, a methodology for filling high aspect ratio vias using a dual metal process is provided. Note, however, the first and second fill metals may be the same.

  • Patent number: 10025685
    Abstract: A memory subsystem manages memory I/O impedance compensation by the memory device monitoring a need for impedance compensation. Instead of a memory controller regularly sending a signal to have the memory device update the impedance compensation when a change is not needed, the memory device can indicate when it is ready to perform an impedance compensation change. The memory controller can send an impedance compensation signal to the memory device in response to a compensation flag set by the memory or in response to determining that a sensor value has changed in excess of a threshold.

  • Patent number: 10028303
    Abstract: This disclosure describes methods, apparatus, and systems related to providing a source device more degrees of freedom in the performing CCA, and in using CCA for communicating with neighboring devices. Before accessing the channel, a source device may need to perform carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA), the CSMA/CA additionally comprising CCA. In various embodiments, CCA can be performed either using quasi-omnidirectional receiving antenna(s), or using directional receiving antenna(s). In one embodiment, one or more requisite conditions for performing directional CCA can be specified. In another aspect, sensitivity level adjustments can be provided when performing directional CCA and/or quasi-omnidirectional CCA.

  • Patent number: 10025732
    Abstract: A clock domain crossing can occur earlier in time by detection of when a data signal will coincide with a TSV (time slot valid) signal but the valid signal associated with the data signal will not coincide with a TSV. In response to such a detection, the domain crossing circuit can send the valid signal early, resulting in a valid signal sent on an earlier TSV and the data signal sent on a TSV. In one embodiment, such a system can cause a data signal to be received in a slower clock domain on a first edge of the slower clock signal after the data is queued in the faster clock domain. The sending of the early valid indication can reduce latency in transferring data between clock domains.

  • Patent number: 10028301
    Abstract: Technology for performing device-to-device (D2D) communications is disclosed. A user equipment (UE) can identify D2D data to be transmitted from the UE. The D2D data can be identified when the UE is in a radio resource control (RRC) idle. The UE can be limited to using a defined resource allocation mode to transmit the D2D data from the UE. A service request procedure can be initiated at the UE. The service request procedure can trigger the UE to perform an RRC connection establishment procedure with an evolved node B (eNB) to switch the UE from the RRC idle mode to an RRC connected mode. The UE can receive an uplink (UL) grant from the eNB for communicating the D2D data from the UE. The UE can send the D2D data using the UL grant provided by the eNB.
