  • Patent number: 11376995
    Abstract: A vehicle seating assembly includes a seatback movable between an upright position and a reclined position relative to a seat base. A track assembly includes a bracket slidably received by a rail. The bracket is operably coupled with at least one of the seatback and the seat base. A rear support assembly is positioned to extend at least partially along the seatback and includes a base operably coupled with the seatback. First and second struts extend downward from the base, and one of the first and second struts is pivotally coupled with a back end of the bracket. An actuator assembly is operably coupled with the base and is configured to move the seatback between the upright position and the reclined position.

  • Publication number: 20220197805
    Abstract: Examples described herein relate to at least one processor and circuitry, when operational, to: in connection with a request from a device to copy data to a destination memory address: based on a page fault, copy the data to a backup page and after determination of a virtual-to-physical address translation, copy the data from the backup page to a destination page identified by the physical address. In some examples, the copy the data to a backup page is based on a page fault and an indication that a target buffer for the data is at or above a threshold level of fullness. In some examples, copying the data to a backup page includes: receive the physical address of the backup page from the device and copy data from the device to the backup page based on identification of the backup page.

  • Patent number: 11364828
    Abstract: A seat assembly includes a cushioned component having a lattice matrix, wherein the lattice matrix includes a first portion defined by a first pattern of interconnected links which defines a first set of cells, and a second portion defined by a second pattern of interconnected links which defines a second set of cells. The first portion of the lattice matrix includes a density profile that is different than a density profile of the second portion of the lattice matrix. An air bladder is disposed within a core portion of the lattice matrix and includes a non-porous outer casing surrounding an interior cavity. The outer casing of the air bladder and the lattice matrix are integrated components comprised of a common material to define a monolithic structure created using an additive manufacturing process.

  • Patent number: 11360543
    Abstract: Hardware-based wake detection and system-on-chip (SoC) firmware support for servicing fixed display port (DP) and High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) port hot plug events which allow a Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C subsystem to go into a powered off state while the fixed display is not streaming. Upon receiving a display software-initiated wake for fixed display streaming in response to a hot plug detect, the SoC USB Type-C firmware triggers exit low-power state flow to power up the USB USB Type-C subsystem to handle the display traffic. The SoC USB Type-C firmware has the capability to autonomously re-enter the low power state when the fixed display(s) are not streaming.

  • Publication number: 20220064133
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for transferring an image of predetermined length onto a substrate by selective energization of a row of printing elements in a printhead of a printing apparatus. Operational characteristics of the printing apparatus are determined, and the image is rendered such that the number of rows of the pixels in the rendered image is no greater than the maximum number of rows of pixels which can be printed in the length of the image given the operational characteristics of the printing apparatus. Additional rows of pixels may be printed between pairs of rows of printed which correspond to consecutive rows in the rendered image. The pixel content of each additional row is a function of the pixel content of the adjacent pairs of rows.
