  • Patent number: 11915363
    Abstract: A tag buffer implements a tag buffer stage of a rasterization phase in a tile-based rendering graphics processing system having a rendering space sub-divided into a plurality of tiles to which primitives can be associated. A buffer stores an identifier that identifies a visible primitive fragment at each sample position of a tile of the plurality of tiles. A look-up table stores an entry for transformed primitive blocks that indicates whether the tag buffer has received information identifying a primitive fragment associated with that transformed primitive block.

  • Publication number: 20230215463
    Abstract: The technology disclosed herein enables automatic implementation of a physical barrier to protect access to data on removable storage media. In a particular embodiment, a method provides determining that the item moved into a storage position using an automatic transfer mechanism and determining that a condition for protecting the item is satisfied. Upon determining that the condition is satisfied, the method provides implementing a physical barrier that prevents the automatic transfer mechanism from removing the item from the storage position.

  • Publication number: 20220383900
    Abstract: A tape cartridge for use in one or more tape drives of a tape library includes a cartridge housing and a magnetic tape. The magnetic tape is retained within the cartridge housing. The magnetic tape includes a first tape section that is pre-recorded with calibrated data for evaluating data durability on the magnetic tape. The magnetic tape is usable within the tape library to measure a health of the one or more tape drives and/or confirm a suitability of an operating environment within the tape library in terms of at least one of temperature and humidity. The calibrated data in the first tape section can be further configured for evaluating total transverse dimensional stability on the magnetic tape. The first tape section can include predetermined error patterns to assist in evaluating the data durability on the magnetic tape and/or periodic tape scrubbing operations to enhance data durability on the magnetic tape.
