  • Patent number: 7434119
    Abstract: A memory self-test system is provided comprising a self-test controller operable in self-test mode to generate a sequence of generated memory addresses for performing memory access operations associated with the memory test algorithm having an associated memory cell physical access pattern. A programmable re-mapper is operable to re-map the sequence of generated memory addresses derived from the self-test instruction to a sequence of re-mapped memory addresses. The programmable re-mapper performs this re-mapping in response to programmable mapping selection data. The re-mapping of the generated memory addresses to re-mapped memory addresses ensures that the memory cell accesses performed during execution of the memory self-test are consistent with the associated memory cell physical access pattern regardless of the particular implementation of the memory array.

  • Patent number: 7379947
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for computing page rankings more efficiently. Using an interconnectivity matrix describing the interconnection of web pages, a new matrix is computed. The new matrix is used to compute the average of values associated with each web page's neighboring web pages. The secondary eigenvector of this new matrix is computed, and indices for web pages are relabeled according to the eigenvector. The data structure storing the interconnectivity information is preferably also physically sorted according to the eigenvector. By reorganizing the matrix used in the web page ranking computations, caching is performed more efficiently, resulting in faster page ranking techniques. Methods for efficiently allocating the distribution of resources are also described.

  • Patent number: 7362697
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer instructions for managing a set of signal paths for a chip. A defective signal path within the set of signal paths for the chip is detected. Signals are re-routed through the set of signal paths such that the defective signal path is removed from the set of signal paths and sending signals using remaining data signal paths in the set of signal paths and using an extra signal path in response to detecting the defective signal path.

  • Patent number: 7318116
    Abstract: A system, a method, and a computer program product to provide a failover procedure for an automated data storage library are provided. During the operation of a data storage library, a host computer issues control commands to the automated data storage library using one or more control paths. In the event that the host does not receive desirable results, such as when communication is lost between the host computer and the automated data storage library while a command is in process, the host computer may attempt to retry the same command using the same control path or an alternate control path. When the host issues a retry of the same command, the automated data storage library performs an examination of the command and one or more previous commands executed to prevent the automated data storage library from executing an identical command more than once.

  • Patent number: 7308623
    Abstract: An integrated circuit and method for testing memory on that integrated circuit includes processing logic operable to perform data processing operations on data, and a number of memory units operable to store data for access by the processing logic. A memory test controller is also provided for executing test events in order to seek to detect any memory defects in the number of memory units. The controller includes a storage operable to store event defining information for each of a plurality of test events forming a sequence of test events to be executed, and an interface which, during a single programming operation, receives the event defining information for each of the plurality of test events and causes that event defining information to be stored in the storage. Event processing logic within the controller is then operable, following the single programming operation, to execute the sequence of test events.

  • Patent number: 7251718
    Abstract: An apparatus, system, and method are disclosed for managing physical addresses of data storage media within a data storage library. The library maintains a data table of storage slots and the media stored in those slots. The data table may contain addresses for storage slots that are not physically present or accessible within the library. Hardware such as storage slots may be added or removed without causing an inconsistency within the data table of assigned addresses. Addresses may be recorded as the particular frame, column, and row that describe the location of a particular storage slot. Each data storage media is associated with a particular host. The data table of the library maintains a record of data storage media and the host affinity the media corresponds to.
