  • Publication number: 20210132675
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for scrambling and descrambling data in a computer system includes transmitting non-scrambled data from a first high speed inter chip (IP) link circuit located on a first chip to a first serializer/deserializer (SERDES) physical (PHY) circuit located on the first chip, the first high speed link IP indicating the data is not scrambled. The received non-scrambled data is scrambled by the first SERDES PHY circuit and transmitted to a second chip. The received scrambled data is descrambled by a second SERDES PHY circuit located on the second chip. The non-scrambled data is transmitted by the second SERDES PHY circuit to a second high speed link IP circuit located on the second chip to a third circuit for further processing or transmission.

  • Patent number: 10530760
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus, including computer program products, related to relationship-based authorization. In general, data characterizing a request for authorization to a computer-based resource is received, and the authorization may be provided based on one or more relationships of a requesting principal. A determination may be made as to whether a requesting principal is authorized, which may include determining whether the requesting user has a relationship with a principal that has management rights of the computer-based resource and determining whether the relationship allows for an access, such as a use of the computer-based resource, if the requesting principal has a relationship with the other principal. If there is no such relationship, a determination may be made as to whether an organization of the requesting principal has a relationship with the other principal that allows for the access.

  • Publication number: 20190007070
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for managing data decoder circuits, such as LDPC (low density parity check) decoders in a solid state drive (SSD). In some embodiments, a non-volatile memory (NVM) is configured to store data in the form of code words. Each code word has a user data payload and associated code bits. A plurality of data decoder circuits are configured to use the code bits to detect and correct bit errors in the code words during a read operation. A power transition circuit is configured to successively transition each of the data decoder circuits in turn from a first power mode to a second power mode, such as from an active mode to an idle mode, at a different time and at a conclusion of a predetermined time interval. In this way, voltage spikes or other anomalous conditions on a voltage source pathway may be reduced.
