  • Patent number: 11495195
    Abstract: The present teaching relates to method, system, medium, and implementations for data transfer in LED display. A signal signaling a timing for a next data transfer is received. In response to the signal, a next data transfer instruction is obtained that instructs reading a bit-based image block of an image from a memory. The bit-based image block is transferred, according to the next data transfer instruction, from the memory via a bus connected thereto, to one of a pair of alternate buffers pointed to by a write buffer pointer. Then, the write buffer pointer is toggled to point to another of the pair of alternate buffers and the process repeats. The bit-based image blocks alternately stored in the buffers are later retrieved and displayed on the LED display.

  • Patent number: 11487564
    Abstract: Switching shells attached to a terminal. Suppose that a shell has already output text into the terminal, and at that point a new shell is to be attached to the terminal. That subsequent shell is then started up, and text output is gathered from that new shell. Content representing that new shell is then displayed in the terminal. As an example, if the output is the same for the new shell as it was for the old shell, the terminal can just keep the old output displayed in the terminal, and eliminate the need to also output the identical output from the new shell. If the output of the new shell is different than that of the old shell, the terminal may be refreshed and the new content rendered perhaps in a single frame and/or without displaying text associated with this switching activity.

  • Patent number: 11307687
    Abstract: A circuit which detects an output current from a pixel and an output current from an input device, and converts the output current into data is provided. The current detection circuit includes an integrator circuit, a comparator, a counter, and a latch. The integrator circuit integrates the potential of a first signal during a period determined by a second signal and outputting it as a third signal. The comparator compares the potential of the third signal with a first potential and outputting a fourth signal. The counter outputs the number of pulses included in a fifth signal as a sixth signal during a period determined by the fourth signal. The latch holds the sixth signal. The integrator circuit preferably further includes an operational amplifier and some capacitors. The first signal is supplied from a pixel included in a display device or an input portion included in an input device.

  • Patent number: 11269577
    Abstract: A display device has display panels forming a single display screen, where each display panel is connected to a display controller which receives display data of a portion of a complete image for display on the display panel. The complete image includes one or more bounded regions of display data. Each display controller receives position information relating to a change in lateral position and/or stacking order position of one or more bounded regions to be displayed at least partly on that display panel. If the display controller does not have knowledge of display data in the bounded region to be displayed on the display panel, it obtains that knowledge from another display controller. The display controller processes the display data for the portion of the complete image utilizing the knowledge obtained, and outputs the processed display data for the portion of the complete image to the corresponding display panel.
