  • Patent number: 10013369
    Abstract: A server system is disclosed. The server system comprises a host system, at least one hard disk (HD) drive, a host bus adapter (HBA), at least one indicator, a storage enclosure processor (SEP), a baseboard management controller (BMC) and a snoop device. The HBA is used to issue a bus signal in a format suitable for transmission over a serial bus according to the received drive state from the at least one HD drive and send the bus signal over the serial bus. The SEP receives the bus signal over the serial bus and drives the at least one indicator to corresponding states. The BMC is coupled to a network. The snoop device detects the bus signal over the serial bus and sends a warning signal to the BMC when a drive failure event is detected.

  • Patent number: 9961723
    Abstract: This invention is related to a heating plate for a heated clothing and a connecting structure of the same. The heating plate comprises a heater strip which two ends are connected with two electric wires respectively, and each electric wire comprises sequentially a first right angle, a horizontal segment, a second right angle, and a vertical segment. The vertical segments of the electric wires go out from a covering piece which covers the heater strip and the electric wires. Therefore, when the electric wires of the heating plate are pulled, the pull strength is dispersed at the right-angle bend to be decreased, avoiding the heater strip moving. Furthermore, when the heating plate is set on the heated clothing, according to different size of the heated clothing, the length of an assembly electric wire is relative to the distance between the heating plates.

  • Patent number: 9251887
    Abstract: A static random access memory system includes a static random access memory, a multiplexer, an input buffer, an output buffer, and a shifter. The input buffer writes write data stored in the input buffer to addresses of the static random access memory corresponding to a write address signal according to a write command. The output buffer reads read data of addresses of the static random access memory corresponding to a read address signal according to a read command. The multiplexer transmits the write address signal and the read address signal to the static random access memory, and generates the write command and the read command. The shifter shifts the write command to an operation clock behind the read command when the write command and the read command exist simultaneously.

  • Patent number: 9105218
    Abstract: A display device capable of controlling an external light and a control method are provided. Image display of the display device and the external light are synchronously controlled through a synchronization signal generated by a control module in the display device. The control module generates a first and a second light source control signal during first cycles and second cycles of the synchronization signal. The first and the second light source control signal are used to control the external light to operate at a first operation state and at a second operation state respectively. Through the techniques of controlling the external light by the display device, i.e. turning off or reducing illumination intensity of the external light every other specific period, both influence of the external light on contrast ratio and light reflection from the display device are reduced. Power of the external light is also saved.

  • Publication number: 20150025427
    Abstract: The invention relates to a retractable and adjustable heating brace. Primarily, a main body is provided with a tie portion, retractable portions and assembly portions. A heating piece is disposed within the tie portion, and the assembly portion is provided with a temperature controller. Furthermore, a first conductive wire is connected to the heating piece at one end thereof and to the temperature controller at the other end thereof by extending through the first, second and third spaces, wherein the length of the first conductive wire located in the retractable portion is larger than the length of the retractable portion. Thereby when the user ties the main body around his or her waist by pulling the retractable portion thereof, the length of the first conductive wire can be stretched appropriately according to the stretch of the retractable portion. Accordingly, it can prevent the first conductive wire from break or damage.

  • Patent number: 8788874
    Abstract: A container system and a monitoring method for the container system are provided. The container system includes a plurality of servers and a master server node. The servers are arranged in N areas. The master server node is coupled to the servers. The master server node selects one of a plurality of servers in an ith area to be a main node of the ith area. The main node collects temperature information of the servers in the ith area to transmit highest temperature information to the master server node. When the master server node cannot connect to the main node, the master server node selects one of other servers connected to the master server node in the ith area to be a replacing node, and adjusts the replacing node to be the main node of the ith area to collect the temperature information in the ith area continuously.

  • Publication number: 20140184528
    Abstract: The method for identifying a gesture on a touch panel has steps of receiving position information of at least three touch objects; determining whether the position information of any one of the at least three touch objects has been changed; if the position information of any one of the at least three touch objects has been changed, calculating a first sum of distances between the at least three touch objects before moving, then calculating a second sum of distances between the at least three touch objects after moving, and calculating a variation between the first sum and the second sum; and determining whether the variation exceeds a default value, and if the variation exceeds a default value, a first gesture is identified. The first gesture is identified as a grab gesture or a spread gesture based on whether the variation is positive or negative.
