  • Patent number: 10592430
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a memory hierarchy for a system-in-package. An example memory hierarchy is connectable to a processor via a memory management unit arranged for translating a virtual address sent by the processor into a physical address. The memory hierarchy has a data cache memory and a memory structure having at least a L1 memory array comprising at least one cluster. The memory structure comprises a first data access controller arranged for managing one or more banks of scratchpad memory of at least one of the clusters of at least the L1 memory array, comprising a data port for receiving at least one physical address and arranged for checking at run-time, for each received physical address, bits of the physical address to see if the physical address is present in the one or more banks of the at least one cluster of at least the L1 memory array.

  • Publication number: 20050044424
    Abstract: The subject invention provides a method of allowing access to an electronic device (218) disposed in a working space (14) by a user (16) having a remote device (212). An initial signal is transmitted from an access point (20) instructing the remote device (212) to respond after a delay period. The remote device (212) responds upon the expiration of the delay period. The access point (20) measures a period interval from the transmission of the initial signal to the detection of a response signal. A distance of the remote device (212) is determined based upon the period interval and the known positions of the access point (20) and the electronic device (218). In another embodiment, a fixed device (256) transmits locating signals detected by three access points (220, 221, 223) and the access points (220, 221, 223) measure a time differential. The position of the remote device (212) is determined based upon a time of arrival, the location of each of the access points (220, 221, 223), and the time differential.

  • Patent number: 5774041
    Abstract: A chime cover assembly (10) comprising a box-like housing for supporting the electrical components of a door chime and including a cover (12) presenting a front wall (18) and a base (14) for mounting to a wall (16). The assembly characterized by a decorative plate (30) for being covered with wallpaper (32), or the like, and secured to the front wall (18) of the cover (12). The front wall (18) has holes (34) therein and the plate (30) includes integral projections (36) extending therefrom for insertion into the holes (34) for securing the plate (30) to the front wall (18). The cover (12) presents slanted trim areas (44) at the top and bottom of the front wall (18) and trim strips (46, 48) attach to the housing in the trim areas (44).
