  • Patent number: 10377505
    Abstract: Passageway including a section that is extendable and retractable, the section including frame, slide track assemblies, and scissor bar assembly. The frame includes upright members on a first side of the frame. The slide track assemblies are disposed proximately to the upright members. Each of the slide track assemblies includes a slide track and a slide block. The slide track has a cavity and a channel. The slide block can ascend, descend, and rotate within the cavity. The slide block includes a guide block that extends from the slide block through the channel. The scissor bar assembly is secured to the upright members and slide blocks of the slide track assemblies such that the upright members are enabled to extend and retract with respect to each other along an arcuate path, wherein the guide block limits rotation of the slide block to rotation of the guide block within the channel.

  • Publication number: 20190235933
    Abstract: A computer implemented method includes receiving multiple requests to update a data structure stored in non-volatile memory (NVM) and applying an atomic multiword update to the data structure to arbitrate access to the NVM. In a further embodiment, a computer implemented method includes allocating a descriptor for a persistent multi-word compare-and-swap operation (PMwCAS), specifying targeted addresses of words to be modified, returning an error if one of the targeted addresses contains a value not equal to a corresponding compare value, executing the operation atomically if the targeted addresses contain values that match the corresponding compare values, and aborting the operation responsive to the returned error.

  • Publication number: 20190205295
    Abstract: An in-memory database system stores an entirety of a database within main memory of the computer system. The database includes a table comprising a plurality of rows including a particular row. A first transaction updating the particular row is executed to create a first version of the particular row. A second transaction updating the particular row is executed to create a second version of the particular row. The first version is visible only to the first transaction, and the second version is visible only to the second transaction. The in-memory database system may associate an index with the database table, the index referencing the plurality of rows, including referencing the first version of the particular row and the second version of the particular row. The in-memory database system may initiate garbage collection of the first version of the particular row and/or the second version of the particular row.

  • Patent number: 10296615
    Abstract: An in-memory database system stores the entirety of a database that is being operated on by a database system within main memory. The database includes a table that comprises a plurality of rows including a particular row. The database table comprises a first version of the particular row having a first valid time, and a second version having a second valid time. Index(es) are associated with the database table. Each index references the plurality of rows, including referencing the first and second versions of the particular row. A transaction acting on the first version of the particular row is executed. The first version of the particular row is visible to the transaction based on the first valid time and the second version of the particular row being not visible to the transaction based on the second valid time.

  • Publication number: 20180154780
    Abstract: A system for providing mechanical and electrical power in a vehicle or other engine-driven platform includes a first engine having a first power rating and a second engine having a second power rating that is less than the first power rating. The system further includes a first generator (for example, an alternator) for generating electrical power for a load operation (such as vehicle propulsion), and a second generator (for example, a DFIG) for generating fixed frequency electrical power; both generators are operatively connected to and powered by the first and/or second engines. The first and/or second engines may be selected to power the first generator for generating power for vehicle propulsion or another load operation depending upon situational power requirements of the engine-driven platform.
