  • Patent number: 9008196
    Abstract: A computer system includes a processor, and the processor includes at least one interface for communicating with an electronic component. Each of the at least one interface has a set of interface settings. The computer system further includes a memory containing machine executable instructions. Execution of the instructions causes the processor to: monitor communications traffic on the at least one interface; store, eye distribution data acquired during the monitoring of the communications traffic in a database; compare the eye distribution data to a set of predetermined criteria; and generate a set of updated interface settings if the eye distribution does not satisfy the set of predetermined criteria.

  • Patent number: 8898503
    Abstract: Transferring data from a first clock domain to a second clock domain, wherein the second clock domain has a fixed clock frequency, and the first clock domain has a variable clock frequency. The first clock domain and the second clock domain operate in a synchronous mode when the variable clock frequency is equal to the fixed clock frequency, and in an asynchronous mode when the variable frequency is lower than the fixed frequency. A first buffer and a second buffer are used for a data transfer from the first clock domain to the second clock domain. The second clock domain comprises a multiplexor connected to the first buffer and the second buffer. The multiplexor forwards data from the first buffer further into the second clock domain in the synchronous mode and from the second buffer into the second clock domain in the asynchronous mode.

  • Patent number: 8766760
    Abstract: A switchgear unit switches high DC voltages, particularly for interrupting of direct current between a direct current source and an electrical device. The switchgear unit contains two connections which project from a housing and which are electrically conductively coupled by a conductor path, a contact system which is arranged between the first and second connections and an isolating apparatus that can be tripped by a thermal fuse. The thermal fuse contains a melting location which is arranged in the conductor path and which is connected first to the contact system and second via a moving conductor section to the first connection. The isolating apparatus is tripped and the connection between the conductor section and the contact system is broken at the melting location when an arc produced when the contact system is opened has caused the melting temperature of the melting location to be reached or exceeded.

  • Patent number: 8751989
    Abstract: A technique for routing signal traces in an electronic package design includes extracting near-end and far-end crosstalk values for traces and vias from a model of the electronic package design. The extracted values are then length-normalized and the normalized values are allocated to coupling factors of a cost-function. A first bus routing for the electronic package design is performed to provide a first routed design. Length segments from the first routed design are extracted and inserted in the cost-function. Crosstalk for each bus net is accumulated using the cost-function. In response to the accumulated crosstalk being less than a determined limit, the first routed design is saved. In response to the accumulated crosstalk being greater than the determined limit, an additional bus routing for the electronic package design is performed.
