  • Patent number: 11132457
    Abstract: A system is provided for controlling access to data stored in a cloud-based storage service. Data associated with a user account is stored at the cloud-based storage service. A portion of the data is associated with a heightened authentication protocol, a first request receiving, at the cloud-based storage service, for an application to access data that is associated with the heightened authentication protocol. The first request is authenticated based on the heightened authentication protocol. In response to authenticating the first request, permission is granted to the application to access the data that is associated with the heightened authentication protocol. The permission is time-limited. It is determined that the application is editing the data that is associated with the heightened authentication protocol. Permission for the application to access the data while the application is editing the data is temporarily extended.

  • Patent number: 10914784
    Abstract: An automated test equipment (ATE) system comprises a system controller, wherein the system controller is communicatively coupled to a tester processor and an FPGA. The FPGA is communicatively coupled to the tester processor, wherein the FPGA is configured to internally generate commands and data transparently from the tester processor for testing a DUT. Further, the system comprises a demultiplexer positioned between the DUT and the FPGA, wherein, responsive to a determination that the DUT is operating in a high speed mode, the demultiplexer is configured to channel data traffic from the DUT to a Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) receiver on the FPGA, and further wherein, responsive to a determination that the DUT is operating in a low speed mode, the demultiplexer is configured to channel data traffic from the DUT to input buffers on the FPGA with switchable on/off input terminations.
