  • Patent number: 10270583
    Abstract: A transmit (TX) signal path circuit in a multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) transceiver responsive to a digital front end (DFE) for generating receive (RX) path phase alignment signals is disclosed. A digital up-conversion block uses a first numerically-controlled oscillator (NCO) for generating digital intermediate frequency (IF) signals for ordinary TX signal generation, and a different, second NCO for generating digital IF signals for RX phase alignment signal generation. An RF up-conversion block uses a TX local oscillator (LO) for generating analog RF signals for ordinary TX signal generation, and a different feedback (FB) LO for generating analog RF signals for RX phase alignment signal generation. Thus, phase alignment of the circuitry used for ordinary TX signal generation is left undisturbed by RX phase alignment signal generation.

  • Patent number: 9994998
    Abstract: This disclosure provides plants having desirable levels of lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens; methods of selecting plants with such desirable levels of lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens; methods of genetically modifying plants to modulate lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens; and uses of such plants. The inventors have determined that the expression and/or activity of POPTR_0014s08530, a gene encoding an Angustifolia/CtBP transcription factor, modulates lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens in plants. Plants with lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens, based on modulation of the expression or activity of the POPTR_0014s08530 gene, have divergent uses including pulp and paper production, and ethanol/biofuel production.

  • Publication number: 20170075557
    Abstract: An improvement to a graphical user interface disposed within a display includes a functional scrollbar, a magnifier disposed on the functional scrollbar to enhance the view of the functional scrollbar, and a filter for selecting attributes of data within a data file. The functional scrollbar includes two parts, one that has a plurality of portions indicative of content of the data file shown on the display and one that has a plurality of portions indicative of content of the data file not shown on the display. The two parts of the scrollbar include portions indicative of content within the data file that matches the filter selection. A system for generating a functional scrollbar is also described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20160196420
    Abstract: An electronic system is provided. The electronic system includes a first electronic device and a second electronic device. The first electronic device generates a new key every certain time period. The second electronic device establishes a connection with the first electronic device to receive the new key therefrom to store the new key as a latest received key. When the first electronic device receives an input event under a locked status, the first electronic device requests the second electronic device to transmit the latest received key thereto, determines that whether the latest received key is the same as the new key and switches to a power on and unlocked status automatically when the latest received key is the same s the new key.

  • Patent number: 9298868
    Abstract: A technique for generating pushdown data comprises performing logical pushdown of circuit elements and nets and detecting physical pushdown based on partition boundary crossings. Geometry associated with one logical level may be used as a keep-out region for the same physical layer when generating physical design of a different logical level. The technique may advantageously enable concurrent design in both top-level and low-level physical design phases, thereby reducing overall design cycle time in developing an integrated circuit.

  • Patent number: 8722441
    Abstract: A method for fabricating a light emitting device includes forming a trench in a first surface on first side of a substrate. The trench comprises a first sloped surface not parallel to the first surface, wherein the substrate has a second surface opposite to the first surface of the substrate. The method also includes forming alight emission layer over the first trench surface, but not over the remainder of the first substrate surface, and removing at least a portion of the substrate from the second side of the substrate to expose the light emission layer and allow it to emit light out of the protrusion or protrusions on the second side of the substrate. These protrusions may be elongated pyramids.
