  • Patent number: 11455768
    Abstract: In a ray tracer, to prevent any long-running query from hanging the graphics processing unit, a traversal coprocessor provides a preemption mechanism that will allow rays to stop processing or time out early. The example non-limiting implementations described herein provide such a preemption mechanism, including a forward progress guarantee, and additional programmable timeout options that can be time or cycle based. Those programmable options provide a means for quality of service timing guarantees for applications such as virtual reality (VR) that have strict timing requirements.

  • Publication number: 20220236110
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a method and apparatus that can be used to determine various characteristics of ambient light when an ambient light sensor is located behind a display screen. The strategy of the disclosure relies, at least in part, on spectral decomposition of ambient light measurements into components (e.g., red, green, and blue components of an Organic Light Emitting Diode (“OLED”) display screen and ambient light). Following the spectral decomposition technique, statistical analysis are performed on the measurement data to remove the OLED light components from the measurement. This technique enables determinations such as ambient lux and correlated color temperature independent of the content displayed on the screen.

  • Publication number: 20220218940
    Abstract: A pressure regulating or pressure relief device comprises an inlet and an outlet chamber with an outlet. The inlet is in fluid communication with the outlet chamber. A valve seat is located between the inlet and the outlet. A valve member is biased to seal against the valve seat, and displaces from the valve seat by an inlet pressure at the inlet increasing above a pressure threshold to allow a flow of gases from the inlet to the outlet via the outlet chamber. The flow of gases through the outlet causes an outlet pressure in the outlet chamber to act on the valve member together with the inlet pressure to displace the valve member from the valve seat.

  • Patent number: 11285341
    Abstract: The present invention provides electron beam therapies with improved feedback control that delivers controlled and adjustable doses of electron beam radiation to variable shallow depths with little radiation exposure to both nearby tissues and tissues below the target. In order to control radiation to accurately penetrate to shallow depths and to allow the radiation to be adjusted to other depth settings in very small or even continuous increments, the present invention senses a plurality of different electron beam characteristics and then uses these to derive a composite characteristic, or analog, of the electron beam energy. The composite analog provides a strong correlation to energy that allows this precision. In another aspect, the present invention relates to implementing this feedback control by adjusting power levels used to establish the electron beam.
