  • Publication number: 20220232091
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a memory system includes a non-volatile semiconductor memory device, a control unit, a memory as a work area, a wireless communication module, and an extension register. The control unit controls the non-volatile semiconductor memory device. The extension register is provided in the memory and has a data length by which a wireless communication function of the wireless communication module can be defined. The control unit causes the non-volatile semiconductor memory device to store, as a file, an HTTP request supplied from a host, causes the extension register, based on a first command supplied from the host, to register an HTTP transmission command transmitted together with the first command, and causes the wireless communication module to transmit the HTTP request stored in the non-volatile semiconductor memory device based on the transmission command registered in the extension register.

  • Publication number: 20210287349
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus that functions as a non-limiting example image processing apparatus includes a processor. When an original image drawn with horizontally-long first pixels is to be drawn by square second pixels, the processor generates two intermediate image data in each of which the number of second pixels is 1.2 times the number of first pixels of the original image data, by generating a second area formed with six (6) second pixels arranged in a horizontal direction for each of first areas that are formed dividing the original image by every five (5) first pixels arranged in the horizontal direction, and outputs the two intermediate image data to a display control device. The display control device generates output image data by synthesizing the two intermediate image data, and outputs the generated output image data to a display.
