  • Publication number: 20200219802
    Abstract: An electronic component package includes a substrate having an upper surface. Traces on the upper surface of the substrate extend in a longitudinal direction. The traces have a first latitudinal width in a latitudinal direction, the latitudinal direction being perpendicular to the longitudinal direction. Rectangular copper pillars are attached to bond pads of an electronic component, the copper pillars having a longitudinal length and a latitudinal second width. The latitudinal second width of the copper pillars is equal to and aligned with the first latitudinal width of the traces. Further, the longitudinal length of the copper pillars is parallel with the longitudinal direction of the trace and equal to the length of the bond pads. The copper pillars are mounted to the traces with solder joints.

  • Publication number: 20200126177
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer-readable medium are provided for translating OpenGL API calls to operations in a Vulkan graphics driver using an OpenGL-on-Vulkan driver architecture. An OpenGL-on-Vulkan driver receives an OpenGL context and render function, translates an OpenGL format to a Vulkan format, creates a Vulkan object and sets a Vulkan state, and generates a Vulkan command buffer corresponding to the OpenGL render function.

  • Patent number: 10540738
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for monitoring a graphics processing unit (GPU) of a host computer system, including providing at least one test seed and at least one subsystem command to the GPU; receiving at least one test result from the GPU in response to providing the at least one test seed and at least one subsystem command to the GPU; and if the at least one test result does not correspond to at least one expected result, identifying the GPU as being in an undesired state. The subsystems to be tested may be a subset of all subsystems. The determination of subsystems to be tested may be determined in real-time, based on graphical application instructions. The subsystems to be tested may also be pre-determined.

  • Patent number: 10307796
    Abstract: A media transport device is cleaned by using a cleaning substrate sized and configured to fit within at least a portion of a media travel pathway of the transport device. A locking member may secure the cleaning substrate in a substantially fixed position within the transport device while the transport device is operated. The cleaning substrate also may include scarifying holes that scrape debris from media conveyors of the transport device, and flaps that fit under and clean belts of the transport device. Cleaning the transport device may include opening a section, positioning the cleaning substrate in the section without operating the media conveyors' motor, closing the section and then operating the transport device so that the media conveyors move, contact the cleaning substrate and are cleaned while the cleaning substrate remains substantially fixed within the transport device.

  • Publication number: 20190155711
    Abstract: Methods and systems for monitoring the integrity of a graphics processing unit (GPU) are provided. The method comprises the steps of determining a known-good result associated with an operation of the GPU, and generating a test image comprising a test subject using the operation of the GPU, such that the test subject is associated with the known-good result. The test image is written to video memory, and the known-good result is written to system memory. Subsequently, the test subject from the test image is transfered from video memory to system memory. The test subject in the system memory is compared with the known-good result in system memory. If the test subject does not match the known-good result, then a conclusion is drawn that the integrity of the GPU has been compromised.
