  • Patent number: 10735683
    Abstract: A low-power image sensor includes a plurality of light-sensitive pixel cells, a plurality of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and image processing circuitry. The image sensor can be disposed in multiple semiconductor layers such that the pixel cells are disposed in a first layer and various other components are disposed in the second layer or between the first layer and the second layer. The image sensor is configured such that the analog output of a pixel cell is sampled by a first ADC and a second ADC within respective first and second dynamic ranges, the second dynamic range being greater than the first dynamic range. The first ADC and the second ADC sample the analog output with different sampling resolutions. The digital outputs of the first ADC and the second ADC are subsequently used by an image processor to generate a pixel value for an image frame.

  • Patent number: 10516759
    Abstract: Software services are managed from a single machine performing a service. Service providers offering SaaS applications solicit the single machine. Each service provider provides roles and device requirements for performing the corresponding SaaS. The single machine maintains a database that logs the software services offered by the service providers. Whenever a software service is needed, the single machine inventories its client devices for their resource capabilities and compares to the device requirements in the database. The database reveals the client machine(s) that best performs the role for the corresponding SaaS. Software services are thus integrated and managed from the single machine, thus allowing software services to be efficiently and quickly selected as network resources emerge.

  • Patent number: 10489162
    Abstract: In one or more embodiments, one or more systems, method, and/or processes may receive processor instructions via an out-of-band system of an information handling system (IHS) and store the processor instructions via a storage device. For example, the processor instructions may be stored via a hidden partition of the storage device. While the out-of-band system receives the processor instructions, one or more of the IHS and a processor of the IHS may be in a low-power state. For example, the processor may not execute any instructions in the low-power state. While the out-of-band system receives the processor instructions, one or more of the IHS, an operating system of the IHS, and IHS firmware of the IHS may be impaired or inoperable, and the processor instructions may provide one or more remedies and/or repairs. In one or more embodiments, the IHS may be booted after the processor instructions are stored.

  • Patent number: 10482253
    Abstract: In some examples, a computing device may receive (i) settings associated with one or more features of a basic input output system (BIOS) of the computing device and (ii) a device identifier that uniquely identifies the computing device. The computing device may determine a policy identifier that identifies a policy being implemented by the settings associated with the one or more features of the BIOS. The computing device may retrieve a public key associated with an organization that acquired the computing device and sending a request to a service to validate the policy. The request may include the policy identifier and the public key. After the computing device receives a response from the service indicating that the policy is valid, the computing device may initiate a reboot and modify, during the reboot, the one or more features of the BIOS of the computing device based on the settings.

  • Patent number: 10476858
    Abstract: In one or more embodiments, one or more systems, methods, and/or processes may receive, independently of a processor of the information handling system (IHS), first credential management information and may modify, independently of the processor and based on the first credential management information, credential information stored via a secure object store of the IHS. For example, modifying the credential information may include modifying the credential information such that the IHS denies access to at least a portion of the IHS based on the credential information. In one instance, denying access to at least the portion of the IHS may include disabling at least one of password, biometric information associated with a user, and an encryption key. In another instance, denying access to at least the portion of the IHS may include remapping, independently of the processor, at least one human interface device.
