  • Publication number: 20210143826
    Abstract: A frequency adjusting apparatus used in a processing chip operated at an operation frequency according to a power is provided that includes a clock supplying circuit, a frequency division circuit and a control circuit. The clock supplying circuit outputs one of clock signals as a supplied clock signal. The frequency division circuit performs frequency division on the supplied clock signal according to a parameter to generate an output clock signal. The control circuit determines a combination of a selected clock signal and a value of the parameter for gradually increasing the frequency of the output clock signal during the increasing of the voltage value that passes through voltage value sections, wherein when the voltage value is determined to be larger than a second threshold value and when the voltage value sections correspond to higher voltage values, the selected clock signal has a higher frequency.

  • Publication number: 20190209842
    Abstract: The invention provides a system for artificial retinal prosthesis with color vision comprising an artificial retinal prosthesis implanted in a user's body. The artificial retinal prosthesis comprises a plurality of pixel units and a color shutter integrated with the plurality of pixel units structurally. The plurality of pixel units are used to receive an external visual image that enters the eyes of the user, and output a spatiotemporal electrical stimulation to the user's optic nerve according to the external visual image. The color shutter connects with the plurality of pixel units, and determines a spectrum that is allowed to enter the eyes to allow the user to generate a color image perception. By allowing stimulation of the artificial retinal prosthesis to vary with different spaces and times, and synchronously controlling the spectrum that is allowed to enter the eyes, thereby assisting the patient in obtaining color visual perception.
