  • Patent number: 11356378
    Abstract: A credit return field is used in a credit-based flow control system to indicate that one or more credits are being returned to a sending device from a receiving device. Based on the number of credits available, the sending device determines whether to send device or wait until more credits are returned. A write enable mask allows a wide data field to be used even when a smaller amount of data is to be written. A novel data packet uses a combined write enable mask and credit return field. In one mode, the field contains a write enable mask. In another mode, the field contains credit return data. If the field contains credit return data, a default value (e.g., all ones) is used for the write enable mask. The mode may be selected based on another value in the data packet.

  • Patent number: 11343666
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some wireless communications systems, a wireless device may broadcast a discovery preamble to identify a receiving device or to identify a suitable beam for communicating with a receiving device prior to broadcasting a discovery message to the receiving device. In such systems, the wireless device may use the techniques described herein to generate the discovery preamble and to reduce interference between discovery preamble transmissions and avoid data loss. In one example, a wireless device may append a cyclic prefix (CP) to a discovery preamble with a suitable length to protect the discovery preamble from interference from another transmission. In another example, the wireless device may generate a cyclically periodic signal including multiple copies of the discovery preamble so a receiving device may be able to receive a portion of the signal and identify the discovery preamble.

  • Patent number: 11343358
    Abstract: At least a packet header of a packet received by a network device is provided to a programmable header alteration engine that includes a hardware input processor implemented in hardware and a programmable header alteration processor configured to execute computer readable instructions stored in a program memory. The hardware input processor determines whether the packet header is to be provided to a processing path coupled to the programmable header alteration processor or to be diverted to a bypass path that bypasses the programmable header alteration processor, and the packet header is provided to the processing path or to the bypass path based on the determination. The packet header is selectively i) processed by the programmable header alteration processor when the packet header is provided to the processing path and ii) not processed by the programmable header alteration processor when the packet header is provided to the bypass path.
