  • Patent number: 10622099
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a system and method for assisting a physician with a hospital discharge decision pertain to collecting patient data from a patient under consideration who is staying at a hospital, estimating a mathematical probability of the patient under consideration being readmitted to the hospital within a predetermined amount of time if the patient under consideration were discharged on that day, wherein the mathematical probability estimate is based upon the collected patient data and patient data collected from a population of former hospital patients who had previously been discharged and whose readmission status is known, and providing information to the physician that assists the physician in deciding whether or not to discharge the patient under consideration, the information being based upon the results of the mathematical probability estimate.

  • Patent number: 10592445
    Abstract: Examples include techniques to access or operate a dual in-line memory module (DIMM) via one or multiple data channels. In some examples, memory devices at or on the DIMM may be accessed via one or more data channels. The one or more data channels arranged such that the DIMM is configured to operate in a dual channel mode that includes two data channels or to operate in a single channel mode that includes a single data channel.

  • Patent number: 10541018
    Abstract: A method is described. The method includes configuring first register space to establish ODT values of a data strobe signal trace of a DDR data bus. The method also includes configuring second register space to establish ODT values of a data signal trace of the DDR data bus. The ODT values for the data strobe signal trace are different than the ODT values for the data signal trace. The ODT values for the data strobe signal do not change when consecutive write operations of the DDR bus write to different ranks of a same DIMM.

  • Publication number: 20190392886
    Abstract: A memory subsystem triggers entry and exit of a memory device from low power mode with a chip select (CS) signal line. For a system where the command bus has no clock enable (CKE) signal line, the system can trigger low power modes with CS instead of CKE. The low power mode can include a powerdown state. The low power mode can include a self-refresh state. The memory device includes an interface to the command bus, and receives a CS signal combined with command encoding on the command bus to trigger a low power mode state change. The memory device can be configured to monitor the CS signal and selected other command signals while in low power mode. The system can send an ODT trigger while the memory device is in low power mode, even without a dedicated ODT signal line.

  • Patent number: 10416799
    Abstract: Inadvertent input control techniques are described. In one or more implementations, techniques are described that leverage force to determine a likelihood that a user intended to provide an input, e.g., a selection input (e.g., a “click”), gesture, lift off, and so forth. This is usable to identify taps, hovers, continuation of movement of a drag operation, and so on. Implementations are also discussed that leverage an n-manifold in the product space of contact size and signal strength that is usable to define a likelihood of whether a contact includes an application of force. A variety of other examples are also described, including cursor stability techniques that leverage force in order to control movement of a cursor.
