  • Patent number: 10360121
    Abstract: Embodiments generally relate to a universal debug design which involves integrating a debug controller and a debug card with display together into a single debug design. Debug codes, such as power-on self-test (POST) codes and other error codes, are generated by various subsystems of a server-related system. The codes are transmitted to a controller, which stores the codes in memory. In some embodiments, a multiplexer outputs one debug code from the multitude of received codes, based on a user or event selecting which desired debug code should be displayed. In some embodiments, a decoder converts and sends the LED display signals to a debug card, which displays the debug code on a 7-segment LED display.

  • Patent number: 10101764
    Abstract: A method for automatic clock configurations is performed by a system having a host and a peripheral device. The host indicates on a first general-purpose input/output (GPIO) of a peripheral interface connecting the host and the peripheral device, whether the host supports a first clock configuration. The peripheral device receives from the first GPIO whether the host supports the first clock configuration. The peripheral device selects, in response to the host supporting the first clock configuration, use of a local clock of the peripheral device. The peripheral device selects, in response to the host not supporting the first clock configuration, use of a common clock of the host.

  • Patent number: 9785134
    Abstract: Embodiments generally relate to thermal management in a multi-node computing device. The present technology discloses techniques that can receive multiple control signals from multiple computing nodes, each of the control signals being associated with a fan duty request, which is a request for a fan duty needed to keep a related computing node operating within a predetermined temperature range. The logic controller can rank the received control signals and select a control signal that requests a highest fan duty; lastly, the logic controller can cause multiple cooling fans to operate at the selected highest fan duty.

  • Publication number: 20170205805
    Abstract: A processing method of processing machine is disclosed. The operator may shift the work piece waited for processing by hand or operated in the automatic mode. A drawing file screen of a main screen may be used and the system of the processing machine may be applied to judge to know if the processing points of the work piece waited for processing and the processing coordinates wanted to process are in the tolerance range. Accordingly, the system of the processing machine is activate to process so as to prevent from processing at wrong processing points or deviating from the tolerance range of the processing points wanted to process. It may make sure that the processing yield rate is improved and further make sure that all processing points may truly be finished processing which is monitored by the system and displayed on the drawing file screen of the main screen.
