  • Publication number: 20190270635
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein include systems and techniques for converting (i.e., transducing) a quantum-level (e.g., single photon) signal between the three wave forms (i.e., optical, acoustic, and microwave). A suspended crystalline structure is used at the nanometer scale to accomplish the desired behavior of the system as described in detail herein. Transducers that use a common acoustic intermediary transform optical signals to acoustic signals and vice versa as well as microwave signals to acoustic signals and vice versa. Other embodiments described herein include systems and techniques for storing a qubit in phonon memory having an extended coherence time. A suspended crystalline structure with specific geometric design is used at the nanometer scale to accomplish the desired behavior of the system.

  • Patent number: 8930804
    Abstract: A system for selecting a candidate advertisement for linking to a web page based on the content of the web page. The content of the web page may be automatically determined and then compared to content of the candidate advertisement to determine which candidate advertisement to select. The system can be used to implement a structured advertising system for the World Wide Web. Web pages are searched and indexed, producing indexed content data. This indexed content data may be ranked according to relevancy. The ranked content data are compared to content data of advertisements and an advertisement is selected. The advertisement may be copied onto (linked to) the Web page. Other embodiments may be described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 7203852
    Abstract: A system for and a process of controlling power supplied to a group of computers. The power available is determined, and the total power requirement of the group of computers is monitored. When an additional computer joins the group, the new total power requirement is determined. If this exceeds the power available, but the existing group of computers can operate with reduced power and the additional computer can operate with less power than indicated in the request for power, reduced power is provided to each computer of the existing group of computers, and the additional computer is provided with less power than indicated in the request for power. When the existing group of computers or the additional computer can not operate with this reduced power, the total power requirement of the existing plurality of computers is continued to be provided, and only standby power is provided to the additional computer.

  • Patent number: 6550055
    Abstract: A method and device are provided for creating an information report for a computer system. An information report is used to signal a problem with a computer system and to provide information about the problem. The information report contains only relevant information, thereby decreasing the bandwidth required to send the information report, and the time required for a technician to review the information report. Information about the problem with the computer system is input by a user of the computer system. This information, together with information stored in a diagnostic tree, is used to limit the scope of an automatic information retrieval. An information report is produced from the results of the automatic information retrieval.

  • Patent number: 6512682
    Abstract: Intelligent power supplies to provide power to electronic devices in a manner the avoids causing a power supply circuit fuse to blow or breaker to trip are disclosed. The power supply circuit includes a power supply control device that determines whether supplying power to an additional electronic device would exceed the capacity of the circuit and cause the fuse to blow or the breaker to trip. The power supply control device communicates with electronic devices via a power control interface to determine the power requirements of the electronic devices. Power is supplied to the devices that can be supplied without causing the fuse to blow or the breaker to trip. Power is not supplied to the devices that would cause the fuse to blow or the breaker to trip.
