  • Publication number: 20180164375
    Abstract: Techniques for implementing a self-test procedure of an integrated circuit are provided, where the self-test procedure comprises testing for an electrical connection between first and second input-output pads of the integrated circuit. A control device is capable of adapting a functional configuration of usage of the first and second input-output pads in dependence on presence of the electrical connection. A corresponding integrated circuit, printed circuit and method are also provided. These techniques allow the integrated circuit to be used in a variety of contexts, without requiring physical customisation of the integrated circuit to adapt it to its usage context, in particular where connections from the context to the pads of the integrated circuit may be made to individual pads in some contexts or may span more than one pad in other contexts.

  • Publication number: 20180159544
    Abstract: A phase or frequency locked-loop circuit includes an oscillator configured to generate an output clock signal having a frequency set by an oscillator control signal. A modulator circuit receives a first signal and a second signal and is configured to generate a control signal having a value modulated in response to the first and second signals. A filter circuit generates the oscillator control signal by filtering the control signal. A delta-sigma modulator circuit operates to modulate the second signal in response to a modulation profile. As a result, the output clock signal is a spread spectrum clock signal.

  • Publication number: 20180121499
    Abstract: Techniques for targeted mentions for user correlation to a search term are described. According to various implementations, users interact over a network-based service to engage in conversations (e.g., text, voice, video, and so forth), exchange content, collaborate on projects, and so forth. In the course of these interactions, users that author content and/or interact with content can discuss certain subject matter and can tag (“targeted mention”) certain users as being knowledgeable in the subject matter. The targeted mention is then discoverable during a search process to surface a correlation between a particular user and the particular subject matter.

  • Patent number: 9919345
    Abstract: As fruit (preferably apples) are harvested, the fruit is placed on a conveyor that conveys the fruit to a fruit singulating section. In the singulating section, the fruit is directed into slots in a lane formed by two cooperating helical drives. The helical drives rotate the fruit and convey the fruit into an imaging chamber where a camera acquires an image of the fruit. The fruit image is evaluated by a processor in communication with the camera. The fruit is then directed into a rotary sorter which sorts the fruit based on the image evaluation by the processor.

  • Publication number: 20180026872
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media for detecting network loops. A system can identify, for each virtual tunnel endpoint (VTEP) from multiple VTEPs in a network, respective media access control address data including the respective local interface media access control addresses of the respective VTEP and respective media access control addresses learned by the respective VTEP. The system can determine whether the VTEPs are running spanning tree protocol (STP), and whether a media access control address learned by a first VTEP matches a respective local interface media access control address of a second VTEP. The system can detect a loop when the media access control address learned by the first VTEP matches the respective local interface media access control address of the second VTEP. The system can also detect a loop when the VTEPs are running STP and the first and second VTEPs see the same STP root bridge.
