  • Patent number: 11073888
    Abstract: Platform power management includes boosting performance in a platform power boost mode or restricting performance to keep a power or temperature under a desired threshold in a platform power cap mode. Platform power management exploits the mutually exclusive nature of activities and the associated headroom created in a temperature and/or power budget of a server platform to boost performance of a particular component while also keeping temperature and/or power below a threshold or budget.

  • Patent number: 9415491
    Abstract: An apparatus for rapid installation of threaded fasteners is provided. The apparatus includes a drive portion configured for being received by a rotary tool, a bit holder extending from the drive portion and configured for receiving a tool bit, the bit holder defining an elongate portion, and a sleeve configured for translatable movement along the elongate portion. The sleeve has a first extended position in which an end of the sleeve extends substantially beyond the tool bit and a retraction position in which the sleeve does not enclose the tool bit. A spring biases the sleeve into the extended position. Pressing of an end of the sleeve against a working surface imparts translation of the sleeve in a direction from the extended position towards the retracted position.

  • Publication number: 20060259870
    Abstract: A system for providing a user interface includes a gadget definition, a style definition, and a scene file. The gadget definition includes one or more XML-based gadget definition tags defining a gadget element and the style definition includes one or more XML-based style definition tags defining one or more style attributes to be applied to the gadget element. The scene file is an XML-based document that includes a gadget element tag that specifies the gadget element. The system further includes a parser to parse the scene file, the style definition, and the gadget definition, and to generate an object that includes a gadget object corresponding to the gadget element. The system also includes a layout engine to determine, based on the object model, a layout of the user interface, and a rendering engine to render, based on the determined layout, the user interface including the gadget element.

  • Publication number: 20060259869
    Abstract: A system for providing a user interface includes an XML-based scene file that includes an element tag that specifies an element of the user interface. The system also includes an XML-based animation tag and an XML-based state tag. The animation tag includes an animator element for applying an animation to an attribute of the element. The state tag specifies a state of the element and references the animation tag such that the animation is applied to the attribute in response to the element entering the state. In addition, the system includes a parser to parse the scene file, the animation tag, and the state tag and to generate an object model that includes an element object corresponding to the element of the user interface. The system further includes a layout engine to determine a layout of the user interface and a rendering engine to render the user interface.
