  • Patent number: 10872647
    Abstract: A memory device performs DLL (delay locked loop) calibration in accordance with a DLL calibration mode configured for the memory device. A host controller can configure the calibration mode based on operating conditions for the memory device. The memory device includes an input/output (I/O) interface circuit and a delay locked loop (DLL) circuit coupled to control I/O timing of the I/O interface. A control circuit of the memory device selectively enables and disables DLL calibration in accordance with the DLL calibration mode. When selectively enabled, the DLL calibration is to operate at a time interval identified by the DLL calibration mode, and when selectively disabled, the DLL calibration is to cease or refrain from DLL calibration operations.

  • Patent number: 10797685
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for jitter cancellation with automatic performance adjustment are described. Within a clock distribution system in an electronic device (e.g., a memory device), a jitter cancellation system may be configured to introduce delay between an input clock signal and output clock signal that is directly proportional to the supply voltage for the clock distribution system. In response to supply noise, the delay introduced by the jitter cancellation system may vary directly with respect to the supply voltage fluctuations and thus may offset fluctuations in the delay introduced by other components of the clock distribution system, which may vary inversely with respect to the supply voltage fluctuations. A control component within the jitter cancellation system may execute an algorithm to adjust or regulate the delay introduced by the jitter cancellation system, including its responsiveness to fluctuations in the supply voltage.

  • Patent number: 10783588
    Abstract: A computer system and method for processing insurance claim data to identify and recommend insurance policy modifications using informatic data from one or more informatic sensor devices relating to a dwelling. Analytical analysis is performed on the received informatic data to determine a dwelling assessment value regarding an insurance risk relating to the dwelling. Electronic data relating to an insurance policy associated with the dwelling is received by a computer processor and is electronically analyzed to determine insurance coverage and liability values for the dwelling as prescribed by the insurance policy. Predefined business rules are utilized by a computer processor using at least the dwelling assessment value and the determined insurance coverage and liability values for the dwelling to determine, and preferably recommend, one or more insurance products for inclusion with the insurance policy to mitigate insuree liability regarding the dwelling.
