  • Publication number: 20210167557
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to circuitry for detecting at least partial removal of an audio accessory plug from a corresponding socket. The circuitry comprises a monitoring unit comprising a first terminal configured to be electrically connected to a first socket contact of the socket that is in electrical contact with a first plug contact of the plug when the plug is fully received in the socket. The monitoring unit is configured to monitor a first impedance of a first signal path coupled to the first terminal, and the circuitry is configured to output a signal indicative of detection of at least partial removal of the plug from the socket in response to detection by the monitoring unit of a first predetermined sequence of impedance states of the first signal path.

  • Publication number: 20210064979
    Abstract: This application relates to computing circuitry (200, 500, 600) for analogue computing. A plurality of current generators (201) are each configured to generate a defined current (ID1, ID2, . . . IDj) based on a respective input data value (D1, D2, . . . Dj). A memory array (202), having at least one set (204) of programmable-resistance memory cells (203), is arranged to receive the defined currents from each of the current generators at a respective signal line (206). Each set (204) of programmable-resistance memory cells (203) includes a memory cell associated with each signal line that, in use, can be connected between the relevant signal line and a reference voltage so as to generate a voltage on the signal line. An adder module (207) is coupled to each of the signal lines to generate a voltage at an output node (210) based on the sum of the voltages on each of the signal lines.
