  • Patent number: 10408876
    Abstract: Embodiments include novel approaches for scan-based device testing using a march controller. A march data store can have sets of march element data stored thereon, each defining a respective march element of a march test sequence. A march select register can select each stored set of march element data according to the predefined march test sequence, and a march data loader can iteratively and sequentially output each set of march element data selected by the march select register. A memory built-in self-test controller can generate, in response to receiving each set of march element data output by the march controller, test stimulus data corresponding to the received set of march element data. The test stimulus data can input to a scan chain of the integrated circuit under test, and response data can be captured from the scan chain and assessed to determine whether the integrated circuit passed the test.

  • Publication number: 20130346190
    Abstract: The present application is related to systems and methods for enabling information providers to influence a position for a search listing within a search result list generated by an Internet search engine. The systems and methods may provide accounts for the network information providers. Each account may contain a search listing having at least three components: a description, a search term comprising one or more keywords, and a bid amount. The network information provider may add, delete, or modify a search listing to influence the position for a search listing within a corresponding search result list. The systems and methods may send a notification to an external destination upon occurrence of a predetermined event, such as the change of position in the search listing.

  • Patent number: 8527533
    Abstract: A system and method for enabling information providers using a computer network such as the Internet to influence a position for a search listing within a search result list generated by an Internet search engine. The system and method of the present invention provides a database having accounts for the network information providers. Each account contains at least one search listing having at least three components: a description, a search term comprising one or more keywords, and a bid amount. The network information provider may add, delete, or modify a search listing after logging into his or her account via an authentication process. The network information provider influences the position for a search listing through a continuous online competitive bidding process. The bidding process occurs when the network information provider enters a new bid amount, which is preferably a money amount, for a search listing.

  • Patent number: 7363300
    Abstract: A system and method for enabling information providers using a computer network to influence a position for a search listing within a search result list. A database stores accounts for the network information providers. Each account contains contact and billing information. In addition, each account contains at least one search listing having at least three components: a description, a search term comprising one or more keywords, and a bid amount. The network information provider may add, delete, or modify a search listing after logging into his or her account via an authentication process. The network information provider influences a position for a search listing in the provider's account by first selecting a relevant search term and entering that search term and the description into a search listing. A continuous online competitive bidding process occurs when the network information provider enters a new bid amount for a search listing.
