  • Patent number: 10409469
    Abstract: According to the present invention, a terminal executes a program correlated to content displayed in a window, etc., of a browser operating in the terminal. When the content is loaded into the window, etc., by execution of the program, the terminal registers a callback function by a window.requestAnimationFrame method assigned to the window, etc. When the callback function is invoked, the terminal determines, on the basis of an interval of timestamps at which the callback function is invoked with respect to the window, etc., whether or not the window, etc., is being browsed by a user, and re-registers the callback function by the window.requestAnimationFrame method assigned to the window, etc. The terminal intermittently notifies a server of the result of the determination.

  • Patent number: 10366027
    Abstract: A method for steering data for an I/O write operation includes, in response to receiving the I/O write operation, identifying, at an interconnect fabric, a cache of one of a plurality of compute complexes as a target cache for steering the data based on at least one of: a software-provided steering indicator, a steering configuration implemented at boot initialization, and coherency information for a cacheline associated with the data. The method further includes directing, via the interconnect fabric, the identified target cache to cache the data from the I/O write operation. The data is temporarily buffered at the interconnect fabric, and if the target cache attempts to fetch the data while the data is still buffered at the interconnect fabric, the interconnect fabric provides a copy of the buffered data in response to the fetch operation instead of initiating a memory access operation to obtain the data from memory.

  • Publication number: 20170087183
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate to methods for preparing high optical density solutions of nanoparticle, such as nanoplates, silver nanoplates or silver platelet nanoparticles, and to the solutions and substrates prepared by the methods. The process can include the addition of stabilizing agents (e.g., chemical or biological agents bound or otherwise linked to the nanoparticle surface) that stabilize the nanoparticle before, during, and/or after concentration, thereby allowing for the production of a stable, high optical density solution of silver nanoplates. The process can also include increasing the concentration of silver nanoplates within the solution, and thus increasing the solution optical density.
