  • Patent number: 10261824
    Abstract: A virtualization platform can discover capabilities of data devices connected in a virtual infrastructure. The virtualization platform allows a user (e.g., system administrator) to specify a policy profile for a virtual machine in terms of performance and data handling parameters. The virtualization platform can provision a virtual machine comprising data devices having a combined capability that matches the policy profile. Enforcement of a policy profile can be made when I/O is performed by a virtual machine.

  • Publication number: 20180325379
    Abstract: An optrode may provide a cylindrical substrate two or more electrodes deposited said cylindrical substrate. The cylindrical substrate and electrodes may be coated by an insulating layer with openings or vias over certain portions of the electrodes that may provide a contact for the neural probe or may be utilized to connect lead lines. Manufacturing of an optrode may utilize a jig that secures a cylindrical substrate coated by a conductive material and a resist. A first mask may be positioned in an opening provided by the jig, and the cylindrical substrate may be exposed ions or neutral particles to define one or more electrode patterns. After regions of the resist and conductive material are removed to form the electrodes, a second mask may be utilized to define vias regions in which portions of the electrodes are exposed and uncoated by an insulating layer.

  • Publication number: 20180248961
    Abstract: Embodiments perform capability discovery, policy management, and policy enforcement to provide data in-flight (DIF) services to virtual machines (VMs) without requiring modification to established storage protocols. In exemplary embodiments, a management device receives advertisements of DIF services supported by network nodes. The management device groups the advertised DIF services into a DIF services policy. The management device associates a host and a communication path. The management device enforces the DIF services policy by storing a unique number that causes transmission of data along the communication path.

  • Publication number: 20180154450
    Abstract: A nanoporous gold disk (NPGD) as a novel surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) substrate. NPGD has SERS enhancement factor similar to that of gold nanoshells, but allows, for example, at least three times more benzenethiol molecules to be attached to its surface due to large surface-to-volume ratio. The high capacity enables the rapid detection of attomole-level benzenethiol molecules with relatively high detector temperatures. Additionally, a fabrication process to make NPGD with controlled size and highly reproducible SERS activities.

  • Patent number: 9948566
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, apparatuses, and systems a management server receiving, from a switch, an indication of network congestion at the switch. The indication includes one or more contributors to the network congestion. In response to the indication of network congestion, the management server identifies one or more hosts running the identified contributor(s) and transmits an instruction to the host(s) to restrict network traffic originated by the contributor(s). For example, the restriction may include a reduction in the contributor's I/O queue depth. If the reduction in traffic does not remedy the congestion, the management server may receive a further indication of congestion and further instruct the host(s) to restrict identified contributor network traffic. For example, the contributors may have their I/O queue depth reduced exponentially until congestion is relieved.

  • Patent number: 9915866
    Abstract: A semiconductor device fabrication method includes irradiating a first surface of a substrate with a radiation beam. While irradiating the first surface of the substrate, a precursor gas is introduced near the first surface to deposit a layer including a first material. The precursor gas is removed from near the first surface after the depositing the layer. After the removing the precursor gas and prior to forming another layer over the layer, while irradiating a second surface of the layer, a cleaning gas is introduced near the second surface of the layer to transform the first material into a second material.

  • Patent number: 9905277
    Abstract: A memory system comprises a memory controller and a memory device having one or more memory ranks and multiple memory electrically connected to the one or more memory ranks. The memory controller includes at least one analysis module and at least one switching determination module. The analysis module analyzes states of multiple memory control commands corresponding to a particular memory rank to generate a control parameter. The switching determination module determines whether at least one switching command is sent according to the control parameter, a current operation mode of the particular memory rank, and an operation state of the particular memory rank. When the memory device receives a first switching command of the at least one command, the particular rank and at least one part of the memory internal circuits are switched from the normal voltage operation mode to the low voltage operation mode.
