  • Patent number: 11334260
    Abstract: Described apparatuses and methods control a voltage or a temperature of a memory domain to balance memory performance and energy use. In some aspects, an adaptive controller monitors memory performance metrics of a host processor that correspond to commands made to a memory domain of a memory system, including one operating at cryogenic temperatures. Based on the memory performance metrics, the adaptive controller can determine memory performance demand of the host processor, such as latency demand or bandwidth demand, for the memory domain. The adaptive controller may alter, using the determined performance demand, a voltage or a temperature of the memory domain to enable memory access performance that is tailored to meet the demand of the host processor. By so doing, the adaptive controller can manage various settings of the memory domain to address short- or long-term changes in memory performance demand.

  • Patent number: 11128413
    Abstract: Currently, wideband channel simulation/emulation is carried out through channel realizations obtained from dispersion functions dictated by communication standards, in order to perform the tests and validation of the new data communication schemes. However, the channel models available in the state of the art only consider the simulation/emulation of stationary channels with separable dispersion characteristics, allowing only the treatment of unrealistic channels. The present invention describes and details a method and apparatus for performing the channel simulation/emulation in scenarios where the channel is doubly selective, i.e., selective in time and frequency, where the simulation/emulation is of an arbitrarily long duration, and for a channel that is locally non-stationary in time, not stationary in frequency and with a non-separable dispersion function.

  • Patent number: 11086276
    Abstract: A controller for a building system receives training data including input data and output data. The output data indicate a state of the building system affected by the input data. The controller pre-processes the training data using a first set of pre-processing options to generate a first set of training data and pre-processes the training data using a second set of pre-processing options to generate a second set of training data. The controller performs a multi-stage optimization process to identify multiple different sets of model parameters of a dynamic model for the building system. The multi-stage optimization process includes a first stage in which the controller uses the first set of training data to identify a first set of model parameters and a second stage in which the controller uses the second set of training data to identify a second set of model parameters. The controller uses the dynamic model to operate the building system.

  • Patent number: 11055460
    Abstract: A system and method for input-directed constrained random simulation includes obtaining an initial state for a finite state machine (FSM) that models an electronic circuit design under test (DUT), the initial state assigning values to registers of the device under test, by providing an initial state function I(s) relating to the FSM to a satisfiability problem (SAT) solver to obtain register values that satisfy the initial state function. A random Boolean circuit R(i) is constructed. A SAT solver is queried for a satisfying assignment for a conjoined expression providing the conjunction of at least a valid-transition Boolean circuit T(s, i, s?) and the random Boolean circuit R(i), the valid-transition Boolean circuit describing valid transitions of the FSM as a function of current state s, inputs i, and next state s?. The satisfying assignment is added to the end of a constructed trace.

  • Patent number: 11042428
    Abstract: We disclose a system that optimizes deployment of sensors in a computer system. During operation, the system generates a training data set by gathering a set of n signals from n sensors in the computer system during operation of the computer system. Next, the system uses an inferential model to replace one or more signals in the set of n signals with corresponding virtual signals, wherein the virtual signals are computed based on cross-correlations with unreplaced remaining signals in the set of n signals. Finally, the system generates a design for an optimized version of the computer system, which includes sensors for the remaining signals, but does not include sensors for the replaced signals. During operation, the optimized version of the computer system: computes the virtual signals from the remaining signals; and uses the virtual signals and the remaining signals while performing prognostic pattern-recognition operations to detect incipient anomalies that arise during execution.

  • Patent number: 10990713
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for generating a state space model of a physical system. A matrix decomposition module is configured to receive input data and determine a size of an input matrix based on the input data. When the input matrix size is below a threshold, a singular value decomposition of the input matrix is determined using a first technique. When the input matrix size is above the threshold the input matrix is subdivided into a plurality of subparts. For each subpart, a separability value of that subpart is determined. When the separability value indicates that the subpart is well separated, a singular value decomposition of that subpart is determined using a second technique. When the separability value indicates that the subpart is not well separated, data associated with that subpart is provided to the matrix decomposition module via a recursive call.
