  • Patent number: 11947860
    Abstract: The techniques described herein improve user interface consistency when presenting a guest application running on a guest operating system as if it were a native application running on a host operating system. Specifically, window placement limitations imposed by the guest operating system are overcome by coordinating size and location between the guest application and a host proxy application. When the proxy application is confined to a single display, the size and location of the guest application and corresponding proxy application are synchronized. When the proxy application is moved or resized so as to be rendered on multiple displays, the application hosting engine decouples the location synchronization, leaving the guest application within a single display. Before being forwarded to the guest application, user interface events received by the proxy application are adjusted according to the different locations of the guest application and the proxy application.

  • Patent number: 11699408
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for performing asynchronous memory clock changes on multiple displays are disclosed. From time to time, a memory clock frequency change is desired for a memory subsystem storing frame buffer(s) used to drive pixels to multiple displays. For example, when the real-time memory bandwidth demand differs from the memory bandwidth available with the existing memory clock frequency, a control unit tracks the vertical blanking interval (VBI) timing of a first display. Also, the control unit causes a second display to enter into panel self-refresh (PSR) mode. Once the PSR mode of the second display overlaps with a VBI of the first display, a memory clock frequency change, including memory training, is initiated. After the memory clock frequency change, the displays are driven by the frame buffer(s) in the memory subsystem at an updated frequency.

  • Patent number: 11599322
    Abstract: A system may include electronic devices that communicate wirelessly. When positioned so that a pair of devices overlap or are near to one another, the devices may operate in a linked mode. During linked operations, devices may communicate wirelessly while input gathering and content displaying operations are shared among the devices. One or both of a pair of devices may have sensors. An orientation sensor, motion sensor, optical sensor, and/or other sensors may be used in identifying conditions in which to enter the linked mode and to identify a region where displays in the pair of devices overlap.

  • Patent number: 11536581
    Abstract: An embodiment takes the form of a system that obtains application-usage data from a personal mobile device of a vehicle operator of a vehicle. The application-usage data reflects a usage, during operation of the vehicle, of an application on the personal mobile device. The system identifies a vehicle feature, of the vehicle, that provides a vehicle functionality similar to an application functionality provided by the application on the personal mobile device, and performs a comparison of the obtained application-usage data with feature-usage data. The feature-usage data reflects a usage, during operation of the vehicle, of the identified vehicle feature. The system determines, based on the comparison, a usage preference for the application during operation of the vehicle over the identified vehicle feature.

  • 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.
