  • Patent number: 11551632
    Abstract: A graphics processing unit (GPU) of a processing system transmits pixel data for a frame to a display in a compressed burst, so that the pixel data is communicated at a rate that is higher than the rate at which the display scans out the pixel data to refresh the frame at a display panel. By transmitting pixel data for the frame in a compressed burst, the GPU shortens the time spent transmitting the pixel data and extends the time before the next frame of pixel data is to be transmitted. During the extended time before the next frame of pixel data is to be transmitted, the GPU saves power by placing portions of the processing system in a reduced power mode.

  • Patent number: 11538437
    Abstract: Particular embodiments described herein provide for an electronic device that includes a display and is configured enabling a low power refresh during a semi-active workload. The electronic device includes a display engine, where the display engine generates a video stream with a frame rate, a display, where the display includes an image viewable by a user and the image is refreshed at a first refresh rate, and a timing controller located in the display, where the timing control receives an indicator from the display engine and uses the indicator to determine that the first refresh rate can be lowered to a second refresh rate without the frame rate of the video stream from the display engine being changed. In an example, the indicator is frame with no image data at the start of the frame. In another example, the indicator is an implicit indictor sent by the display engine.

    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to systems and methods of transferring bulk data, such as OLED compensation mask data, generated by a source device to a sink device using a high-bandwidth embedded DisplayPort (eDP) connection contemporaneous with an ENABLED Panel Self-Refresh (PSR) mode. Upon ENABLING the PSR mode, the source control circuitry causes the source transmitter circuitry, the sink receiver circuitry, and the eDP high-bandwidth communication link to remain active rather than inactive. The source control circuitry generates one or more data transport units (DTUs) having a header portion that contains data indicative of the presence of a bulk data payload and the non-display status of the bulk data payload carried by the DTUs.

  • Patent number: 11386521
    Abstract: A disaggregated processor package can be configured to accept interchangeable chiplets. Interchangeability is enabled by specifying a standard physical interconnect for chiplets that can enable the chiplet to interface with a fabric or bridge interconnect. Chiplets from different IP designers can conform to the common interconnect, enabling such chiplets to be interchangeable during assembly. The fabric and bridge interconnects logic on the chiplet can then be configured to confirm with the actual interconnect layout of the on-board logic of the chiplet. Additionally, data from chiplets can be transmitted across an inter-chiplet fabric using encapsulation, such that the actual data being transferred is opaque to the fabric, further enable interchangeability of the individual chiplets. With such an interchangeable design, higher or lower density memory can be inserted into memory chiplet slots, while compute or graphics chiplets with a higher or lower core count can be inserted into logic chiplet slots.

  • Patent number: 10867448
    Abstract: Recent technical advances have expanded the breadth, scope, and affordability of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) systems. More people can use VR and AR systems than ever before. However, hand-held physical controls for these systems have not made similar advances yet. For this reason, it remains difficult for developers to create applications that take advantage of the full range of human abilities. In this proposal, we describe a system and method for combining off-the-shelf smartwatches with a set of inexpensive grips or sheaths to control VR/AR systems. With our approach, all of the computation and power for the controller derive from the smartwatch unit, allowing the grips to take almost any form, and allowing developers and designers to integrate a much wider array of interaction styles into their applications.

  • Patent number: 10755672
    Abstract: A playback device is configured to be connected to a display device. The playback device includes a communication component and a controller. The communication component communicates with the display device. The controller acquires setting information indicating a current setting of a brightness range in the display device from the display device via the communication component. While a specific brightness range has not been set in the display device, the controller transmits information related to a setting change to the specific brightness range via the communication component to the display device based on correspondence information indicating a correspondence relationship between the display device and the brightness range that is settable in the display device.

  • Patent number: 10671757
    Abstract: Technologies relating to converting an alphanumerical string that comprises personally identifying data (PID) into a signature for the string are described herein. The string is partitioned into several substrings, where each substring includes at least one character. For each substring, a sequence of bits that is uniquely mapped to the substring is retrieved from a mapping table. Thereafter, at least one bit is removed from each sequence of bits to create updated sequences of bits, and the updated sequences of bits are ordered based upon their values. For each updated sequence of bits, a substring that is uniquely mapped to the updated sequence of bits is retrieved from the mapping table. The retrieved substrings are concatenated in the order corresponding to the updated sequence of bits.

  • Patent number: 10613811
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatus for communicating video data in packed frames are described. The video data corresponds to multiple asymmetrical display devices, and the packed frames are transmitted through a single display port. In one example a method includes receiving video data targeted to multiple display devices, the data for each display being provided as a set of scanlines for display at a first clock rate, inserting padded scanlines into the set of scanlines to obtain a padded set of scanlines that includes the same number of scanlines a second display device, generating a packed frame by combining the padded set of scanlines with the set of scanlines corresponding to the second display device, and transmitting the packed frame over a communication link. The display devices may have different resolutions. The location of each padded scanline in the padded set of scanlines is identified by configuration information.

  • Patent number: 10607572
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for frequency synchronization and phase correction at a rendering device are described. One method may include receiving, from a display device (e.g., a head-mounted display (HMD) device), a vertical sync count and an indication of one or more frame repeats. The rendering device may estimate a vertical sync frequency based on the received vertical sync count, and determine a phase corresponding to a minimum frame repeat based on the indication of the one or more frame repeats. The rendering device may adjust a vertical sync frequency to the estimated vertical sync frequency and a phase to the determined phase. The rendering device may transmit one or more frames to the display device using the adjusted frequency and/or the adjusted phase.
