  • Patent number: 9928168
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer programs are disclosed for providing non-volatile system memory with volatile memory program caching. One such method comprises storing an executable program in a non-volatile random access memory. In response to an initial launch of the executable program, the executable program is loaded from the non-volatile random access memory into a volatile memory cache for execution. In response to an initial suspension of the executable program, cache pages corresponding to the executable program are flushed into the non-volatile random access memory.

  • Patent number: 9274715
    Abstract: In a particular embodiment, a device includes memory address remapping circuitry and a remapping engine. The memory address remapping circuitry includes a comparison circuit to compare a received memory address to one or more remapped addresses. The memory address remapping circuitry also includes a selection circuit responsive to the comparison circuit to output a physical address. The physical address corresponds to a location in a random-access memory (RAM). The remapping engine is configured to update the one or more remapped addresses to include a particular address in response to detecting that a number of occurrences of errors at a particular location satisfies a threshold.

  • Patent number: 9253496
    Abstract: A system and method for intelligent decoded picture buffering is described. In one embodiment, a video bitstream buffer receives and temporarily holds an encoded compressed bitstream containing portions of a video. Then, a look ahead parser scans ahead in the video to analyze portions of the encoded video bitstream in the video bitstream buffer to predict the value of the video. Based on this prediction, an intelligent memory manager prioritizes the video portions, and then sends the high valued video portions to a first buffer and sends the low valued video portions to a second buffer.

  • Patent number: 9165854
    Abstract: Electronic devices incorporating a heat dissipation feature include an enclosure, and at least one heat-generating component positioned within the enclosure. The heat dissipation feature is sufficiently coupled to the at least one heat-generating component to facilitate conductive heat transfer from the heat-generating component. The heat dissipation feature includes a plurality of protrusions exposed externally to the enclosure. A thermally insulating material may be disposed on at least a tip portion of at least some of the protrusions. The thermally insulating material is selected to provide a touch temperature that is below a predetermined threshold. In some instances, the thermally insulating material can provide such a touch temperature by selecting the material to include properties for thermal conductivity (k), density (?), and specific heat (Cp) such that the product of k*?*Cp results in a value less than a product of k*?*Cp for human skin.
