  • Publication number: 20210056109
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate to a method, system and computer program product for compacting data in a distributed storage system. According to the method, a query request is received from a client, wherein the query request comprises information of a previous query request of the client. A first query result of the query request and a second query result of the previous query request are retrieved. A delta data and a first indicator are sent to the client in response to the first query result being different from the second query result, wherein the delta data is the data of the first query result excluding the data comprised in both first and second query results, and the first indicator indicates the data comprised in both the first and the second query results.

  • Publication number: 20200402779
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a method for cleaning a processing chamber is provided. The method may be performed by introducing a processing gas into a processing chamber that has a by-product disposed along sidewalls of the processing chamber. A plasma is generated from the processing gas using a radio frequency signal. A lower electrode is connected to a first electric potential. Concurrently, a bias voltage having a second electric potential is applied to a sidewall electrode to induce ion bombardment of the by-product, in which the second electric potential has a larger magnitude than the first electric potential. The processing gas is evacuated from the processing chamber.

  • Publication number: 20200395946
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein that are capable of adjusting a center frequency of an adaptive voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) that is included in an adaptive phase lock loop (PLL) and/or a phase difference target of the adaptive PLL. An adaptive PLL is a PLL that includes an adaptive VCO. An adaptive VCO is a VCO that is capable of adjusting its center frequency and/or a phase difference target of the adaptive PLL that includes the adaptive VCO. The adaptive PLL may be configured to drive (e.g., control) a device. A drive signal that is used to drive the device and a resulting output signal that is proportional to movement of the device may be fed back to respective inputs of the adaptive PLL so that the phases of those signals may be processed to facilitate adjustment of the center frequency and/or the phase difference target.

  • Patent number: 10861379
    Abstract: The techniques disclosed herein provide methods and systems that adaptively adjust control system update rates to optimize power consumption for laser beam scanning display devices. A display device can adjust an update rate based on changes within the system and/or changes of a surrounding environment, e.g., vibration level, a humidity level, a temperature, a resonant frequency, and/or an age of a device. As variations of the environmental properties change, the device can increase or decrease the control system update rates. Additionally, or alternatively, the system can perform a resonance calibration process to determine a resonant frequency. Based on a change in a determined resonant frequency, the system may increase or decrease the control system update rates. By dynamically controlling the system update rates based on environmental and/or physical properties of a device, the device can optimize power consumption while maintaining a desirable image quality.

  • Publication number: 20200285047
    Abstract: A laser beam display device that can dynamically control the resonant frequency of a mirror is provided. The increase the reliability of a device by controlling the resonant frequency of a mirror instead of requiring components of a display device to react to changes in the resonant frequency of a mirror. A controller can drive a mirror with an input signal, receive a signal or data indicating a target resonant frequency, and bias the input signal to control the resonant frequency of the mirror. In some embodiments, the controller can also receive a feedback signal from a mirror indicating a current resonant frequency. The controller can also bias the input signal to increase or decrease the current resonant frequency. By dynamically controlling the resonant frequency of a mirror, a device can minimize any difference between the current resonant frequency detected in a feedback signal and the target resonant frequency.
