  • Patent number: 10505653
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes methods and apparatuses for fine timing measurement with frequency domain processing. In some aspects, a first device receives a frame that is transmitted by a second device via a wireless medium. A degree to which the frame is affected by multipath propagation in the wireless medium is determined based on frequency power and linear phase of the frame, which can be calculated using frequency domain processing. Based on the degree to which the frame is affected, a time of arrival calculation for the frame can be compensated for effects related to the multipath propagation. By so doing, the effects of multipath propagation can be addressed without time domain processing, which is typically complex and more expensive to implement.

  • Publication number: 20190370186
    Abstract: A method, a computer system, and a computer program product to perform a directory lookup in a first level cache for requested cache line data. A first processor core can detect that the requested cache line data is not found in a plurality of sets of data in the first level cache and detect that existing cache line data stored in a least recently used data set stored in the first level cache is in an exclusive state, wherein the existing cache line data stored in the least recently used data set is to be overwritten by the requested cache line data retrieved from a second level cache. Furthermore, the first processor core can send a request for the requested cache line data and a physical address of the least recently used data set to the second level cache and execute additional instructions based on the first level cache and data retrieved from the second level cache.

  • Patent number: 10493970
    Abstract: A method and device control at least one air dryer unit of an air supply system for the primary and auxiliary air supply of a vehicle. In the method and device, at least one compressor is driven by an associated electric motor that serves both for the primary air supply of a primary air tank and for the auxiliary air supply of an auxiliary air tank. Compressed air generated by the compressor is channeled over the at least one downstream air dryer unit so as to dry the compressed air generated by the compressor while the drying agent of the air dryer is regenerated with dried compressed air. During the auxiliary air supply, the air flow used for regenerating the at least one air dryer unit is reduced or suppressed.

    Abstract: Systems and techniques are disclosed to establish programming of an implantable electrical neurostimulation device for treating pain of a human subject, through the use and adjustment of analgesic stimulation parameters based on trust dynamics and trust measurements. In an example, the system to establish programming of the neurostimulation device performs operations that: determine a trust measurement value that is derived from results of at least one commitment made with a human subject, via observable interactions; determine a modification of at least one neurostimulation programming parameter, based on the trust measurement value; and to cause the implantable neurostimulation device to implement the modification of the at least one neurostimulation programming parameter. Further examples are provided to produce and track the trust measurement value, as well as identify a pain susceptibility value and determine a receptiveness to analgesic effects based on these and other trust dynamics.

  • Publication number: 20190361783
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer program products for measuring hardware performance are provided. Aspects include receiving an indication of a start to a hardware operation. A number of clock cycles are counted from the start of a hardware operation to the completion of the hardware operation. A first region comprising a first set of bit location is defined. A second and third region is defined each including a set of bit locations. Based on the first set of bit locations being equal to zero, a granularity flag is set to zero in the sample buffer and the second and third set of bit locations are written to the sample buffer. And based on the first set of bit locations being greater than zero, the granularity flag in the sample buffer is set to one and the first and second set of bit locations are written to the sample buffer.
