  • Publication number: 20210139351
    Abstract: A method of operating an electrochemical cell including introducing an aqueous solution into the electrochemical cell, applying a current across an anode and a cathode to produce a product, monitoring the voltage, dissolved hydrogen, or a condition of the aqueous solution, and applying the current in a pulsed waveform responsive to one of the measured parameters is disclosed. An electrochemical system including an electrochemical cell including an anode and a cathode, a source of an aqueous solution having an outlet fluidly connectable to the electrochemical cell, a sensor for measuring a parameter, and a controller configured to cause the anode and the cathode to apply the current in a pulsed waveform responsive to the parameter measurement is disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10929025
    Abstract: In a data storage system, latency optimization can be practiced by logging a plurality of data accesses to a memory in a register with each data access of the plurality of data accesses corresponding with a command generated by a host connected to the memory. The register may be analyzed with a system module to predict a command execution latency value for the plurality of data accesses that can be used to generate a deterministic data access sequence with the system module. A queue of data accesses can then be reorganized from a first sequence to the deterministic data access sequence to reduce command execution latency variability during a deterministic window selected by the host.

  • Publication number: 20200409874
    Abstract: A data storage system can organize a semiconductor memory into a first data set and a second data set with a first queue populated with a first data access request from a host. An assignment of an arbitration weight to the first queue with an arbitration circuit corresponds with the first queue being skipped during a deterministic window based on the arbitration weight.

  • Publication number: 20190244403
    Abstract: Techniques for creating a mirror symmetric image using a curvilinear or non-linear axis of symmetry (symmetry axis) in 2-D or 3-D space. For each of a set of sample points defining an image, a respective tangent line associated with a sample point is determined with respect to the curvilinear axis of symmetry. A linear paint reflection operation is then performed with respect to the current sample point and the respective tangent line to generate a respective symmetry point. The operation is performed for each sample point such that an aggregate reflection is performed for all sample points to generate a reflected image around the curvilinear path.
