  • Patent number: 11449249
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for memory operations that support configuring a channel, such as a command/address (C/A) channel, are described. A configuration of a C/A channel may be dynamically adapted based on power saving considerations, control information execution latency, or both. Configuring a C/A channel may include determining a quantity of pins, or a quantity of cycles, both for communicating control information over the C/A channel. The quantity of pins may be determined based on previous control information transmissions, characteristics of a memory device, or predicted control information transmissions, or any combination thereof in some cases. The determined quantity of pins, quantity of cycles, or both may be explicitly or implicitly indicated to other devices (e.g., that use the C/A channel).

  • Patent number: 11443779
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for drive strength calibration for multi-level signaling are described. A driver may be configured to have an initial drive strength and to drive an output pin of a transmitting device toward an intermediate voltage level of a multi-level modulation scheme, where the output pin is coupled with a receiving device via a channel. The receiving device may generate, and the transmitting device may receive, a feedback signal indicating a relationship between the resulting voltage of the channel and an value for the intermediate voltage level. The transmitting device may determine and configure the driver to use an adjusted drive strength for the intermediate voltage level based on the feedback signal. The driver may be calibrated (e.g., independently) for each intermediate voltage level of the multi-level modulation scheme. Further, the driver may be calibrated for the associated channel.

  • Patent number: 11425672
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for synchronizing the oscillators onboard satellites of a same network, while minimizing relativistic effects. The method consists of identifying a reference signal having minimal Doppler frequency shifting; adjusting the frequency of an ovenized oscillator to the minimally shifted reference signal, and repeating the process for all satellites of a satellite train having a similar orbital path. Subsequently, the clocks on board the satellites of a same train can be set to a same time, by relaying a clock synchronization protocol between the satellites. The method includes a number of error measurement techniques allowing to further compensate for relativistic effects and make further corrections over time.
