  • Patent number: 10659649
    Abstract: A toner container installable in an image forming device having a controller according to one example embodiment includes a housing having a reservoir for storing toner. A chip is positioned on the housing and configured to receive a first write command from the controller of the image forming device. The chip is further configured to determine whether a transmission cycle bit of the first write command matches a transmission cycle bit of a second write command received by the chip from the controller of the image forming device previous to the first write command. The chip is further configured to resend to the controller of the image forming device a response to the second write command if the transmission cycle bit of the first write command matches the transmission cycle bit of the second write command.

  • Patent number: 10649702
    Abstract: A toner container installable in an image forming device having a controller according to one example embodiment includes a housing having a reservoir for storing toner. A chip is positioned on the housing and configured to, after sending a first busy response to the controller of the image forming device, receive a second write command from the controller of the image forming device that is abbreviated relative to a first write command received from the controller of the image forming device and that requests the chip to send a response to the first write command. The chip is further configured to send a response to the first write command to the controller of the image forming device if upon receiving a read command corresponding to the second write command the chip has completed processing the first write command.

  • Patent number: 10452746
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for quantitatively measuring differences between portions of a multivariate, multi-dimensional sample distribution, may comprise summarizing the data by dividing the data into clusters each having a signature representative of a position of the cluster and a fraction of the entire distribution within the cluster; matching a plurality of first supplier signatures to a respective one of a plurality of second receiver signatures using a cost factor indicative of the separation between first signature elements and second signature elements; and determining a measurement of the work required to transform the first signature to the second signature. The step of determining a measurement of the work may comprise applying the earth mover distance (“EMD”) algorithm between the first signature or elements of the first signature and the respective second signatures or elements of the respective second signature.
