  • Patent number: 10481830
    Abstract: The various implementations described herein include systems, methods, and/or devices used to selectively throttle host reads in memory devices. The method includes: (1) identifying a storage location in the non-volatile memory system with high read disturbs vulnerable to reliability issues, (2) determining if the identified storage location is being throttled for host reads, (3) in accordance with a determination that the identified storage location does not satisfy the predefined read throttling criteria, initiate execution of a read operation, otherwise, enqueue read commands for deferred execution.

  • Patent number: 10408483
    Abstract: A device detects that a first wearable device has connected to a network. The device receives user preferences from the first wearable device. The device identifies a set point corresponding to a climate parameter. The device receives climate information corresponding to the climate parameter from one or more sensors. The device determines whether the climate information is within a threshold percentage of the set point, and based on the determination that the climate information is not within the threshold percentage of the set point, the device adjusts the set point.

  • Patent number: 10401525
    Abstract: A delayed charging system for a vehicle implements an energy transfer efficiency check prior to the scheduled charge time to confirm sufficient grid power quality and wireless power quality. In addition to this, a foreign object check is performed prior to the scheduled charge. These checks are performed immediately after the customer sets up the delayed session as well as at specified intervals after that. If a power quality issue is detected, the customer will be alerted so they can remedy the situation.

  • Patent number: 10339044
    Abstract: The various implementations described herein include systems, methods and/or devices used for garbage collection in memory system. The method includes: (1) determining occurrences of triggering events including data reclamation events, urgent data integrity recycling events, and scheduled data integrity recycling events, and (2) recycling, in response to each of a plurality of triggering events, data in a predefined quantity of memory units from a source memory portion to a target memory portion of the memory system. A respective data reclamation event corresponds to the occurrence of host data write operations in accordance with a target reclamation to host write ratio. A respective urgent data integrity recycling event occurs when a memory portion satisfies predefined urgent read disturb criteria. A respective scheduled data integrity recycling event occurs at a rate corresponding to a projected quantity of memory units to be recycled by the memory system over a period of time.

  • Publication number: 20040129539
    Abstract: Modular plastic conveyor belts constructed of split belt modules. Each module includes a first piece and a second piece. Side-by-side first pieces mate with side-by-side second pieces to form a row of belt modules. Each row has sets of hinge eyes along opposite ends. Hinge pins extending through the hinge eyes at the ends of each row connect the pieces in the row together to adjacent belt rows. Other components, such as rollers, can be inserted into and removed from the unmated pieces and retained in place by retention structure when the module pieces are mated.

  • Patent number: 6681922
    Abstract: Split belt modules used to construct modular plastic conveyor belts. Each module includes a first piece and a second piece, each of which has sets of hinge eyes on opposite ends. The module pieces mate to form complete belt modules. Hinge pins extending through the hinge eyes at the ends of each module connect the pieces together. Other components, such as rollers, can be inserted into and removed from the unmated pieces and retained in place by retention structure when the module pieces are mated.
