  • Patent number: 10785539
    Abstract: A set of media playback and device settings data from each home appliance of a first set of home appliances is stored on a central server and/or sent to a remote control device upon initiation of a suspend command by a user. The stored media and devices states may be used at a later time to control the first set of home appliances, or a user may, after relocating to a second set of home appliances, initiate a resume state command whereupon media playback and device settings data from the central server and/or remote control device controls each home appliance in the second set of home appliances to bring about the same or substantially similar media and device states as in the first set of home appliances.

  • Publication number: 20200264945
    Abstract: At least some aspects of the disclosure provide for a system. In at least some examples, the system includes a microcontroller, an energy storage element, a monitoring circuit, and a communication bridge. The monitoring circuit is coupled to the energy storage element and configured to determine whether a fault associated with the energy storage element is present, generate an indication of the fault when the fault with the energy storage element is present, and transmit the indication of the fault. The communication bridge is configured to receive the indication of the fault and assert a fault signal and transmit the fault signal to the microcontroller.

  • Publication number: 20200136642
    Abstract: A battery powered system includes a voltage level shifter, an anti-aliasing filter, a pair of switches, a unity gain differential buffer, a second pair of switches, and an analog-to-digital converter. The first pair of switches couple the differential output port of the voltage level shifter to the differential input port of the anti-aliasing filter. The second pair of switches couple the differential output port of the anti-aliasing filter to the differential input port of the unity gain differential buffer. The analog-to-digital converter is coupled to the differential output port of the unity gain differential buffer.
