  • Patent number: 7275123
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for providing peer-to-peer data transfer through an interconnecting fabric. The method and apparatus enable a first device to read and/or write data to/from a local memory of a second device by communicating read and write requests across the interconnectivity fabric. Such data transfer can be performed even when the communication protocol of the interconnectivity fabric does not permit such transfers.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 7136953
    Abstract: A bus permits the number of active serial data lanes of a data link to be re-negotiated in response to changes in bus bandwidth requirements. In one embodiment, one of the bus interfaces triggers a re-negotiation of link width and places a constraint on link width during the re-negotiation.

  • Publication number: 20060239262
    Abstract: A method of switching a plurality of tributaries disposed among a plurality of time slots in a frame is disclosed. The method generally includes the steps of (A) buffering the frame, (B) switching the tributaries among the time slots in response to a read address and (C) generating the read address in response to a plurality of identifications in a connection map, the connection map defining (i) at most one of the identifications for each of the tributaries and (ii) one of the identifications for each of the time slots carrying other than the tributaries.

  • Publication number: 20060028478
    Abstract: A computer system includes an integrated graphics subsystem and a graphics connector for attaching either an auxiliary graphics subsystem or a loopback card. A first bus connection communicates data from the computer system to the integrated graphics subsystem. With a loopback card in place, data travels from the integrated graphics subsystem back to the computer system via a second bus connection. When the auxiliary graphics subsystem is attached, the integrated graphics subsystem operates in a data forwarding mode. Data is communicated to the integrated graphics subsystem via the first bus connection. The integrated graphics subsystem then forwards data to the auxiliary graphics subsystem. A portion of the second bus connection communicates data from the auxiliary graphics subsystem back to the computer system. The auxiliary graphics subsystem communicates display information back to the integrated graphics subsystem, where it is used to control a display device.
