  • Publication number: 20130256437
    Abstract: A circulating processor includes a base, a container, a cutlery and a pressurizing mechanism. An operating motor is disposed in the base and is disposed with a mandrel therein. The container is disposed above the base, where a space is formed on its bottom part, and a reflux opening is formed on its upper half part and in communication with the space. The cutlery is positioned on the container's bottom part and connected to the mandrel. Thereby, when the operating motor operates, the mandrel and the cutlery are enabled to rotate synchronously, to mash food, vegetables and fruits in the container. The pressurizing mechanism is in communication with the space of the container. Through the pressurizing effect of the pressurizing mechanism, the mashed food, vegetables and fruits can be transferred into the container via the reflux opening, so as to perform circulating mashing treatment.

  • Publication number: 20120047358
    Abstract: A method and a system for accelerating booting process are provided. The method is adapted to an electronic device having a processor, an embedded controller, and a system memory, in which program codes of a basic input/output system (BIOS) and the embedded controller of the electronic apparatus are commonly stored in the system memory. In the method, when receiving a booting triggering signal of the electronic apparatus, the processor controls the embedded controller to cease accessing the system memory, so as to load the BIOS program code from the system memory to a cache memory and execute power-on self test (POST) procedure. After the program code is loaded, the processor controls the embedded controller to return to a normal mode so as to access the system memory and execute monitoring functions.
