  • Patent number: 10505837
    Abstract: One embodiment relates to a method of communicating a data packet stream in which data is re-packed to reduce wasted bandwidth. Data bytes of the data packet stream are received from a first data path and mapped to a second data path that is divided into a plurality of data segments. At least one data byte is mapped to each data segment until an end of, or pause in, the data packet stream. Another embodiment relates to a method of communicating data packets from multiple channels. Multiple data packet flows, each flow corresponding to a channel, is received on a first data path. The data bytes from the first data path are mapped to a second data path that is divided into multiple data segments. At least one data byte is mapped to each data segment until an end of, or pause in, the multiple data packet flows. Other embodiments, aspects, and features of the invention are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190325591
    Abstract: This characterizing method comprises: estimating (28) the scalar coefficients ?m of an even function ?(?) defined in [0; 2?] that minimizes the following criterion C: C = ? j = 1 n i ? ( ? j - ? * ? ? ( ? j ) ) 2 where: ?j are terms estimated from an acquired digital image, ?(?) is a ?-periodic function defined in the interval [0; 2?], ?(?) is the function defined by the following relationship: ? ? ( ? ) = ? ? + ? ? v ^ ? ( ? ? ? ? ) ? 2 ? ? - 2 ? H - 1 ? d ? ? ? where: {circumflex over (V)} is the discrete Fourier transform of a convolution kernel v, H is an estimated Hurst exponent of the acquired image, f) then, calculating (30), depending on the estimate of the scalar coefficients ?m, an anisotropy index that characterizes the anisotropy of the image, this index varying monotonically as a function of the statistical dispersion of the values of the function ?(?) for ? varying between 0 and ?.

  • Patent number: 10394716
    Abstract: An apparatus and method are provided for controlling allocation of data into cache storage. The apparatus comprises processing circuitry for executing instructions, and a cache storage for storing data accessed when executing the instructions. Cache control circuitry is arranged, while a sensitive allocation condition is determined to exist, to be responsive to the processing circuitry speculatively executing a memory access instruction that identifies data to be allocated into the cache storage, to allocate the data into the cache storage and to set a conditional allocation flag in association with the data allocated into the cache storage. The cache control circuitry is then responsive to detecting an allocation resolution event, to determine based on the type of the allocation resolution event whether to clear the conditional allocation flag such that the data is thereafter treated as unconditionally allocated, or to cause invalidation of the data in the cache storage.

  • Publication number: 20190220612
    Abstract: For protecting confidential information in a printed document, the invention provides a system and method for, on one hand, encrypting the confidential content of the document and then printing the part or parts of the document with confidential information in an encrypted form and the rest of the document in a non-encrypted form, and, on the other hand, decrypting the encrypted document content for display and use or for printing. In addition, for preventing unauthorized copying and tampering of a printed document, the invention provides a system and method for managing a unique tag, which is attached to the document and which authenticates the document.

  • Publication number: 20190163902
    Abstract: A data processing apparatus comprises branch prediction circuitry adapted to store at least one branch prediction state entry in relation to a stream of instructions, input circuitry to receive at least one input to generate a new branch prediction state entry, wherein the at least one input comprises a plurality of bits; and coding circuitry adapted to perform an encoding operation to encode at least some of the plurality of bits based on a value associated with a current execution environment in which the stream of instructions is being executed. This guards against potential attacks which exploit the ability for branch prediction entries trained by one execution environment to be used by another execution environment as a basis for branch predictions.

  • Publication number: 20180082720
    Abstract: An integrated circuit may have pipelined interconnects that includes reset control circuitry, which provide desirable reset values to combinational logic. The pipelined interconnects may include multiple parallel input data paths coupled to the combinational logic. The reset control circuitry may include multiplexers coupled between the pipelined interconnects and the combinational logic for each input data path. The multiplexers may provide the desired reset values to the combinational logic based on control signals from counter and comparison logic circuitry. By comparing path lengths for the input data paths and a timing after reconfiguring the combinational logic, the counter and comparison logic circuitry may provide the correct control signals to the multiplexers during operation after reconfiguring the combinational logic.
