  • Publication number: 20220166255
    Abstract: A control method is disclosed for acquiring a quality factor of a resonant circuit. The resonant circuit has an input node and a detection node. A first DC bias is provided to the input node for a settle time, so that the resonant circuit settles substantially in a first predetermined static state. A second bias different from the first DC bias is provided to the input node, so that the resonant circuit oscillate to settle into a second predetermined static state. A count is acquired, representing how many times a detection signal at the detection node goes across a predetermined value. The quality factor of the resonant circuit is acquired in response to the count.

  • Patent number: 8286187
    Abstract: Resource management system is provided, implemented between a service bundle developer and provider and a service bundle user. A resource requirement determining device determines a system resource requirement for a service bundle provided by the service bundle developer and provider, and generates resource requirement information corresponding to the service bundle. A processor receives information of system resource utilization status from the service bundle user, determines whether available resource of the service bundle user is sufficient for the resource requirement of the service bundle, when the available resource of the service bundle user is insufficient, the processor generates a waiting queue, and adds the service bundle into the waiting queue. When available resource of the service bundle user is sufficient, the processor installs the service bundle specified in the waiting queue in the service user. A storage device stores the waiting queue and corresponding resource requirement information.
