  • Patent number: 10454476
    Abstract: Embodiments include apparatuses, methods, and systems associated with biasing a sleep transistor (also referred to as a power gate transistor) in an integrated circuit. The sleep transistor may be coupled between a load circuit and a power rail, the sleep transistor to be on in an active mode to provide the supply voltage to the load circuit, and to be off in a sleep mode to disconnect the load circuit from the power rail. The bias circuit may be coupled to the gate terminal of the sleep transistor to provide a calibrated gate voltage to the gate terminal during the sleep mode. The calibrated gate voltage may be based on a subthreshold leakage current and a gate-induced drain leakage (GIDL) current of the sleep transistor or a replica sleep transistor designed to replicate the leakage current of the sleep transistor. Other embodiments may be described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20190198093
    Abstract: Embodiments include apparatuses, methods, and systems to implement a multi-read and/or multi-write process with a set of memory cells. The set of memory cells may be multiplexed with a same sense amplifier. As part of a multi-read process, a memory controller coupled to a memory circuit may precharge the bit lines associated with the set of memory cells, provide a single assertion of a word line signal on the word line, and then sequentially read data from the set of memory cells (using the sense amplifier) based on the precharge and the single assertion of the word line signal. Additionally, or alternatively, a multi-write process may be performed to sequentially write data to the set of memory cells based on one precharge of the associated bit lines. Other embodiments may be described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 7094012
    Abstract: A quick set-up tilt table for securement to a precision vise of a tool. The tilt table is made from a plate of metal with a pair of flat parallel sides with holes formed in an arc for insertion of pins. The tilt table may be placed in the precision vise with pins inserted in appropriately marked holes and resting against the top of the precision vise to provide an upper surface to which a clamping fixture may be attached at the desired angle.
