  • Patent number: 10095962
    Abstract: A method for managing memory use in a graphics processing system receives a plurality of objects to be reproduced on an output medium, the output medium being divided into a plurality of bands. Objects falling within a band are stored in a corresponding local band memory and shared objects intersecting the band and at least one other band in at least one shared memory arena. Each shared memory arena is associated with a band counter defining the number of bands referencing said shared memory arena. The local band memory is associated with a data structure storing a shared memory arena identifier of the at least one shared memory arena where the shared objects intersecting the band are stored. The method facilitates release of the at least one shared memory arena in response to rasterizing the band selected for rasterizing based on the plurality of shared memory arena identifiers.

  • Publication number: 20180055401
    Abstract: An acute ischemia detection device comprises a 12-lead electrocardiograph (ECG) device (12), an electronic data processing device (12), and a display component (22). The electronic data processing device applies 12-lead ECG to vessel-specific lead (VSL) transforms (50) to 12-lead ECG data acquired by the 12-lead ECG device to generate VSL lead data (e.g., LAD, LCX, and RCA vessel-specific lead data), determines ST values for the VSL lead data, and decides whether the 12-lead ECG data acquired by the 12-lead ECG device indicates acute ischemia by comparing the ST values for the VSL lead data with VSL lead ST thresholds (60).

  • Patent number: 9762016
    Abstract: An apparatus for use with a dynamoelectric machine includes a main body configured for attachment to a brush holder. A proximity sensor is on the main body, and the proximity sensor is configured for detecting the presence of a brush located at least partially inside the brush holder. The apparatus receives power from a battery located inside the apparatus, and transmits a wireless signal. The wireless signal is transformable into an indication of a remaining life of the brush. The apparatus is configured to be fully operational when the dynamoelectric machine is neither energized nor in operation, as the apparatus receives power from the battery.
