  • Patent number: 11178005
    Abstract: A method for managing multiple software defined wide area network (SD-WAN) software versions includes providing a controller that defines an overall configuration for an SD-WAN and that creates configuration registries for individual SD-WAN appliances to implement their respective portions of the overall configuration. The controller generates, in an intermediate configuration language registry format, a first and second configuration registry for first and second SD-WAN appliance that respectively execute first and second versions of SD-WAN software. The controller respectively transmits the first and second configuration registries to the first and second SD-WAN appliances, which use the first and second configuration registries to configure themselves. The first and second SD-WAN appliances negotiate with each other for common SD-WAN features usable to implement configurations specified in the first and second configuration registries.

    Abstract: An AC/DC power converter includes input terminals, output terminals, a power factor correction circuit coupled between the input and output terminals and including at least one power switch defining a switched current path, and a current transformer including a primary winding and a secondary winding. The primary winding is coupled in series with the switched current path. The power converter also includes a first sense switch coupled with a first end of the secondary winding, a second sense switch coupled with a second end of the secondary winding, and a control circuit. The control circuit is configured to turn on the first sense switch and turn off the second sense switch during a positive polarity of the AC voltage input, and to turn off the first sense switch and turn on the second sense switch during a negative polarity of the AC voltage input.

  • Publication number: 20210295585
    Abstract: A graphics pipeline includes a tessellator stage having a sub-patch distributor and a plurality of tessellators. The sub-patch distributor divides an input patch into a plurality of sub-primitive groups, with the primitive group limit governing the maximum permissible size for a given group of sub-primitives to be assigned to a tessellator. The sub-patch distributor recursively identifies a plurality of regions of the input patch, with the size and number of primitives of each region based on the specified primitive group limit. The sub-patch distributor assigns different regions to different sub-patch groups and distributes the sub-patch groups among the plurality of tessellators.

  • Publication number: 20210272354
    Abstract: Improvements to graphics processing pipelines are disclosed. More specifically, the vertex shader stage, which performs vertex transformations, and the hull or geometry shader stages, are combined. If tessellation is disabled and geometry shading is enabled, then the graphics processing pipeline includes a combined vertex and graphics shader stage. If tessellation is enabled, then the graphics processing pipeline includes a combined vertex and hull shader stage. If tessellation and geometry shading are both disabled, then the graphics processing pipeline does not use a combined shader stage. The combined shader stages improve efficiency by reducing the number of executing instances of shader programs and associated resources reserved.

  • Patent number: 11079368
    Abstract: The invention is directed towards a method and system for optically-based monitoring of chemicals of potential concern (COPCs), including mercury (Hg), methyl mercury (MeHg), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). It employs a multi-parameter statistical analysis model, such as partial least square regression (PLS regression), to identify combinations of predictors (e.g., optical, water quality, and physical properties) that have large covariance with the response values. The predictive model is validated against analytic samples from laboratories. The steps in the method are repeated until predictors, or parameters are selected that avoid over-fitting and which yield physically-based results.

  • Publication number: 20210233333
    Abstract: A system and method for image recognition registration of an athlete into a sporting event. The athlete is registered in the sporting event using image recognition technology. A digital commencement image of the athlete taken by a camera (106) as the athlete crosses a starting line. The digital commencement image is compared with a stored profile image of the athlete to identify the athlete and enter them into the event without the need for the athlete to pre-register for the particular event. Enhanced recognition techniques incorporating pattern recognition may be used to increase identity accuracy.

  • Publication number: 20210183004
    Abstract: A graphics processing unit (GPU) includes a packet management component that automatically aggregates data from input packets. In response to determining that a received first input packet does not indicate a send condition, and in response to determining that a generated output packet would be smaller than an output size threshold, the packet management component aggregates data corresponding to the first input packet with data corresponding to a second input packet stored at a packet buffer. In response to determining that a received third input packet indicates a send condition, the packet management component sends the aggregated data to a compute unit in an output packet and performs an operation indicated by the send condition.

  • Publication number: 20210176137
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are described for a centralized management system operating within a virtual machine which configures, monitors, analyzes, and manages an adaptive private network (APN) to provide a discovery process that learns about changes to the APN through a network control node (NCN) that is a single point of control of the APN. The discovery process automatically learns a new topology of the network without relying on configuration information of nodes in the APN. Network statistics are based on a timeline of network operations that a user selected to review. Such discovery and timeline review is separate from stored configuration information. If there was a network change, the changes either show up or not show up in the discovery process based on the selected time line. Configuration changes can be made from the APN VM system by loading the latest configuration on the APN under control of the NCN.
