  • Patent number: 11366306
    Abstract: A driving circuit includes a first signal-input terminal, a second signal-input terminal, a third signal-input terminal, a fourth signal-input terminal, a signal-output terminal, and a voltage-boosting unit including a first module, a second module, a third module, and a first capacitor. The first module transmits the signal at the third signal-input terminal to a first terminal of the first capacitor during a first time period, and blocks signal transmission during a second time period. During the first time period and the second time period, the second module transmits the signal at the third signal-input terminal to the third module to allow the signal at the fourth signal-input terminal to be transmitted to a second terminal of the first capacitor. During a third time period, the second module and the third module both block signal transmission. The first terminal of the first capacitor is connected to the signal-output terminal for output.

  • Publication number: 20220191486
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are exemplary embodiments of innovations in the area of encoding pictures or portions of pictures (e.g., slices, coding tree units, or coding units) and determining whether and how certain filtering operation should be performed and flagged for performance by the decoder in the bitstream. In particular examples, various implementations for setting the sample adaptive offset (SAO) syntax elements in the H.265/HEVC standard are disclosed. Although these examples concern the H.265/HEVC standard and its SAO filter, the disclosed technology is more widely applicable to other video codecs that involve filtering operations (particularly multi-stage filtering operations) as part of their encoding and decoding processes.

  • Patent number: 11360854
    Abstract: Various embodiments provide a storage cluster configuration change method, an apparatus, a computer system, and the like. In a storage cluster that uses a consensus replication protocol, when half of storage nodes become faulty, if it is determined that at least one storage node exists in the storage cluster after the fault, and a latest log index number of the storage node is greater than or equal to an index number of a committed log provided by the storage cluster for a client, an arbitration module sends a forced cluster configuration change instruction to a fault-free storage node. The forced cluster configuration change instruction is used to instruct the fault-free storage node to change local cluster configuration information.
