  • Publication number: 20220191486
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are exemplary embodiments of innovations in the area of encoding pictures or portions of pictures (e.g., slices, coding tree units, or coding units) and determining whether and how certain filtering operation should be performed and flagged for performance by the decoder in the bitstream. In particular examples, various implementations for setting the sample adaptive offset (SAO) syntax elements in the H.265/HEVC standard are disclosed. Although these examples concern the H.265/HEVC standard and its SAO filter, the disclosed technology is more widely applicable to other video codecs that involve filtering operations (particularly multi-stage filtering operations) as part of their encoding and decoding processes.

  • Publication number: 20220100221
    Abstract: A low power hybrid reverse (LPHR) bandgap reference (BGR) and digital temperature sensor (DTS) or a digital thermometer, which utilizes subthreshold metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) transistor and the PNP parasitic Bi-polar Junction Transistor (BJT) device to form a reverse BGR that serves as the base for configurable BGR or DTS operating modes. The LPHR architecture uses low-cost MOS transistors and the standard parasitic PNP device. Based on a reverse bandgap voltage, the LPHR can work as a configurable BGR. By comparing the configurable BGR with the scaled base-emitter voltage, the circuit can also perform as a DTS with a linear transfer function with single-temperature trim for high accuracy.
