  • Patent number: 11032208
    Abstract: According to an embodiment, an information processing apparatus includes one or more processors. The processors prefetch a scheduling entry corresponding a future time period in advance from scheduling information including one or more scheduling entries, each entry of which contains a transmission state and an interval for each of one or more transmission queues. The processors determine a starting time of transmission for one or more frames waiting for transmission in each queue, based on the scheduling entry. At least one of timing of the prefetching process and timing of the scheduling process is determined based on a result of comparison of a time difference and one or more thresholds. The time difference is a difference between current time and future time where the future time is a candidate for starting time of transmission.

  • Publication number: 20210152635
    Abstract: According to an embodiment, a communication apparatus includes a plurality of virtual machines, a storage unit, a transfer unit, and a descriptor output unit. The storage unit includes a multicast storage area specified for each multicast group and storing a multicast frame addressed to virtual machines belonging to a multicast group. The transfer unit writes the multicast frame into a multicast transfer virtual storage area mapped to the multicast storage area. The descriptor output unit outputs a descriptor of the multicast frame to the virtual machines belonging to the multicast group. The virtual machine includes a descriptor receiving unit and a reading unit. The descriptor receiving unit receives the descriptor. When the descriptor is received by the descriptor receiving unit, the reading unit reads the multicast frame from the multicast storage area specified based on the descriptor.

  • Patent number: 10901057
    Abstract: A magnetic resonance imaging apparatus according to an embodiment includes first generating circuitry and second generating circuitry. The first generating circuitry interpolates a first data string of digital data including envelope information of a radio frequency (RF) pulse to be output, thereby generating a second data string in which a variation amount of digital data adjacent to each other in the first data string is smaller than an upper limit value. The second generating circuitry generates a signal of the RF pulse by combining the second data string generated by the first generating circuitry and information relating to a carrier wave of the RF pulse, and outputs the signal to an RF amplifier.
