  • Publication number: 20200127927
    Abstract: In some examples, a non-transitory machine-readable medium can include instructions executable by a processing resource to: monitor a quantity of interactions between a plurality of user interfaces with an embedded device, determine when the quantity of interactions with the embedded device exceeds a threshold, send a slow-down message to a portion of the plurality of user interfaces in response to the interactions with the embedded device exceeding the threshold, and restrict a portion of the quantity of interactions with the embedded device when the quantity of interactions continues to exceed the threshold for a quantity of time after the slow-down message was sent to the portion of the plurality of user interfaces.

  • Publication number: 20200042479
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods implementing a hardware queue management device for reducing inter-core data transfer overhead by offloading request management and data coherency tasks from the CPU cores. The apparatus include multi-core processors, a shared L3 or last-level cache (“LLC”), and a hardware queue management device to receive, store, and process inter-core data transfer requests. The hardware queue management device further comprises a resource management system to control the rate in which the cores may submit requests to reduce core stalls and dropped requests. Additionally, software instructions are introduced to optimize communication between the cores and the queue management device.

  • Patent number: 9984668
    Abstract: A method in accord with certain implementations involves, at an audio input, receiving a time domain audio signals; at one or more digital signal processors: converting the time domain audio signal to a frequency domain representation containing at least a fundamental frequency component, modifying the frequency domain representation to produce a modified frequency spectrum, converting the modified frequency spectrum to a modified time domain audio signal; and outputting the modified input signals as an output signal. This abstract is not to be considered limiting, since other embodiments may deviate from the features described in this abstract.

  • Patent number: 9812106
    Abstract: A method in accord with certain implementations involves, at a data interface of a musical instrument effects processor, receiving an extracted characteristic of an audible sound that is captured at a microphone; transferring the extracted characteristic to a digital signal processor residing in the musical instrument effects processor; receiving input signals at an input to the musical instrument effects processor; at the digital signal processor of the musical instrument effects processor, modifying the received input signals using the extracted characteristics to create the electronic audio effect; and outputting the modified input signals as an output signal from the musical instrument effects processor. This abstract is not to be considered limiting, since other embodiments may deviate from the features described in this abstract.

  • Patent number: 8074420
    Abstract: Structures built from square metal tubing and methods for their construction, wherein curved sections of square tubing are welded to substantially straight sections of metal tubing according to the design requirements of the structures. The curved components are stronger and lighter than equivalent components made by bending. In addition, the curved components can be manufactured in a much wider range of configurations, sizes and dimensions than equivalent components made by bending.

  • Publication number: 20080063507
    Abstract: The present invention provides techniques for accumulation of bales of hay. The disclosed accumulation system allows for the accumulation of at least eight or ten bales of hay into stabled compacted bale pads. The accumulation system employs at least one diverted to direct a bale of hay into at least one shoot. The bale of hay then is pivoted into a biased positioned relative to any additional accumulated bales of hay. The biased position creates a secure abutment for the additional accumulated bales of hay and allows for stabled compacted bale pads. Upon entry into the accumulator of a final hay bale, a release mechanism is triggered thereby opening a rear release gate and depositing a compacted bale bad onto a field ready for moving and pick up by a grapple system.

  • Publication number: 20070131410
    Abstract: The casing cutter disclosed herein is useful for severing downhole tubulars and comprises a body, slips, a cutting head, cutting blades, and actuators for operating the cutting head and cutting blades. The casing cutter can be anchored within casing wellbore with the slips to provide anchoring support during the cutting operation. Cutting is accomplished by rotatingly actuating the cutting head with an associated motor, and then radially extending the cutting blades away from the cutting head. The cutting blades are actuated by a hydraulic motor operatively coupled to the cutting blades by a series of gears.
