  • Patent number: 10922261
    Abstract: A memory clock frequency adjusting method suitable for a computer device is provided. The computer device includes a basic input output system (BIOS) and a memory. The memory clock frequency adjusting method includes following steps. A boot process of the computer device is executed, and the memory is operated at a memory clock frequency set by the BIOS. Whether the computer device is successfully booted is determined by the BIOS to decide whether the boot process of the computer device is to be re-executed. A setting of the memory clock frequency is adjusted by the BIOS when the computer device re-executes the boot process to lower the memory clock frequency, so that the memory is operated at the lowered memory clock frequency. In addition, a mainboard and a computer operating system applying the memory clock frequency adjusting method are also provided.

    Abstract: A multi-member Bluetooth device includes: a main Bluetooth circuit capable of bidirectionally communicating with a remote Bluetooth device through a first Bluetooth communication circuit; and an auxiliary Bluetooth circuit capable of communicating with the main Bluetooth circuit through a data transmission circuit. While the main Bluetooth circuit utilizes the first Bluetooth communication circuit to communicate with the remote Bluetooth device, the auxiliary Bluetooth circuit utilizes a second Bluetooth communication circuit to sniff packets transmitted from the remote Bluetooth device. When detected that the auxiliary Bluetooth circuit has missed packets transmitted from the remote Bluetooth device, the main Bluetooth circuit transmits missing packets of the auxiliary Bluetooth circuit to the auxiliary Bluetooth circuit through the data transmission circuit.

  • Patent number: 9529581
    Abstract: A circuit for writing program codes of a basic input/output system (BIOS) is connected to a main circuit and a BIOS. The BIOS stores a BIOS program code and has a BIOS identifier. The circuit includes a data source connection interface, a judgment trigger module and a write module. The data source connection interface stores an available BIOS program code matching with the BIOS. The judgment trigger module judges whether the BIOS is capable of, after a power-on initialization phase starts, completing loading the BIOS program code and performing system initialization in a preset time. If the BIOS is incapable of completing loading the BIOS program code and performing system initialization within the preset time, the judgment trigger module sends a trigger signal. After receiving the trigger signal, the write module downloads the available BIOS program codes according to the BIOS identifier, and writes to the BIOS, to overwrite the current data.
