  • Patent number: 9455395
    Abstract: Described herein are methods for controlling a piezoelectric element, for example, for use in a fuel injector, safely and efficiently at higher frequencies without causing damage to the fuel injector due to excessive heating. Methods incorporating features of the present invention can utilize waveform generation, waveform scaling and power amplification to drive a piezoelectric element. In some embodiments, various operating conditions are utilized to determine a scaling value which is compared to a target value to determine the level of scaling to be utilized with a generated waveform.

  • Patent number: 8035645
    Abstract: Multichip graphics processing subsystems include at least three distinct graphics devices (e.g., expansion cards) coupled to a high-speed bus (e.g., a PCI Express bus) and operable in a distributed rendering mode. One of the graphics devices provides pixel data to a display device, and at least one of the other graphics devices transfers the pixel data it generates to another of the devices via the bus to be displayed. Where the high-speed bus provides data transfer lanes, allocation of lanes among the graphics devices can be optimized.
