  • Patent number: 11374564
    Abstract: Examples of the present disclosure provide power gating for stacked die structures. In some examples, a stacked die structure comprises a first die and a second die bonded to the first die. In some examples, a power gated power path is from a bonding interface between the dies through TSVs in the second die, a power gating device in the second die, and routing of metallization layers in the second die to the circuit region in the second die. In some examples, a power gated power path comprises a power gating device in a power gating region of the first die and is configured to interrupt a flow of current through the power gated power path to a circuit region in the second die.

  • Publication number: 20210400179
    Abstract: A sensor system includes a camera including a lens, a casing extending around the lens, at least three heating elements embedded in the casing and arranged circumferentially around the lens, and a computer communicatively coupled to the camera and to the heating elements. The computer is programmed to, upon detecting ice at a location on the lens, select a first subset of the heating elements based on the location of the ice; activate the first subset of the heating elements to a first heating level; determine a second heating level based on an ambient temperature and a lens temperature; and activate a second subset of the heating elements to the second heating level, the second subset including the heating elements not in the first subset.

  • Publication number: 20210114460
    Abstract: An applique is mounted over one or both B-pillars of an autonomous vehicle and includes a display, speaker, touch input, and microphone. The applique may include a curved cover mounted over a printed circuit board (PCB) having LED arrays mounted thereto. A diffuser defines windows for the LED arrays and has a planar surface interfacing with the PCB and a curved surface interfacing with the curved cover. A controller of the vehicle detects proximity to a passenger to be picked up and displays the passenger's name at a first proximity, outputs a spoken message at a second, closer, proximity, and outputs a visible and audible prompt to enter an access code at a third proximity closer than the second proximity.

  • Patent number: 10891992
    Abstract: An SRAM architecture to optimize the performance of the SRAM. The local bit-lines are activated one at a time with control signals from a decoder. The global bit-lines are broken with repeaters to optimize performance. This guarantees optimal performance for the SRAM array across a wide range of supply voltages spanning from the nominal voltage of a process to a sub-threshold range.
