Peripheral Monitoring Patents (Class 710/15)
  • Patent number: 11457483
    Abstract: Techniques manage connection between a user device (e.g., a tablet, a smartphone, a personal computer, a user workstation, etc.) and a peripheral device (e.g., an external mouse, a wireless keyboard, a wireless output device, other accessories, combinations thereof, etc.). Such techniques involve obtaining a current peripheral identifier from an operating system running on the user device, the current peripheral identifier identifying the peripheral device. Such techniques further involve, based on the current peripheral identifier, performing a peripheral recognition operation that attempts to recognize the peripheral device. Such techniques further involve, based on a result of the peripheral recognition operation, performing a peripheral access operation that determines whether the user device is allowed to connect with the peripheral device.

  • Patent number: 11042304
    Abstract: A memory system includes first and second non-volatile memories and a memory controller respectively connected to the first and second non-volatile memories via first and second channels. The memory controller executes a first read operation of reading first data from the first non-volatile memory and a second read operation of reading second data from the second non-volatile memory in parallel in response to a first read request received from the outside, and sets a first transfer rate of the first channel to be lower than a second transfer rate of the second channel when a first time at which the first read operation is scheduled to be completed is earlier than a second time at which the second read operation is scheduled to be completed.

  • Patent number: 11016927
    Abstract: A hierarchical array computer architecture comprised of a master computer connected to a plurality of node computers wherein each node has a memory segment. A high speed connection scheme between the master computer and the nodes allows the master computer or individual nodes conditional access to the node memory segments. The resulting architecture creates an array computer with a large distributed memory in which each memory segment of the distributed memory has an associated computing element; the entire array being housed in a blade server type enclosure. The array computer created with this architecture provides a linear increase of processing speed corresponding to the number of nodes.

  • Patent number: 11009841
    Abstract: A method for initialising control data for a device comprises determining whether an identification value stored in a control storage location of the device has a first value or second value. When the identification value has the first value, space is allocated in the memory for storing the control data and an address of the allocated space in memory is written to a control data pointer storage location of the device. When the identification value has the second value, the allocation of space in memory is omitted and the control data pointer storage location comprises a preset address indicative of a location for storing the control data in local storage provided within the device.

  • Patent number: 11003445
    Abstract: A microprocessor for neural network computing having a mapping table, a microcode memory, and a microcode decoding finite-state machine (FSM) is disclosed. According to the mapping table, a macroinstruction is mapped to an address on the microcode memory. The microcode decoding FSM decodes contents which are retrieved from the microcode memory according to the address, to get microinstructions involving at least one microinstruction loop that is repeated to operate a datapath to complete the macroinstruction.

  • Patent number: 10985940
    Abstract: An on-vehicle device for a driver monitoring system can be configured to be isolated from the vehicle bus while connected to the vehicle's OBD port. In a fully-isolated mode, the device only receives power and ground from the vehicle's OBD port and there is no other communication sent or received from the vehicle bus. In a passive mode, the device can obtain some information from the vehicle bus but does not request any information on the vehicle bus. The device may be undetectable on the vehicle bus. Optionally, the device receives commands via a communication interface to be switched among the three modes: fully active mode, fully isolated mode and passive mode. The commands may come from a server and may be communicated over the internet or over a cell network to a communication module on the device.

  • Patent number: 10970238
    Abstract: Systems and devices can include a controller and a command queue to buffer incoming write requests into the device. The controller can receive, from a client across a link, a non-posted write request (e.g., a deferred memory write (DMWr) request) in a transaction layer packet (TLP) to the command queue; determine that the command queue can accept the DMWr request; identify, from the TLP, a successful completion (SC) message that indicates that the DMWr request was accepted into the command queue; and transmit, to the client across the link, the SC message that indicates that the DMWr request was accepted into the command queue. The controller can receive a second DMWr request in a second TLP; determine that the command queue is full; and transmit a memory request retry status (MRS) message to be transmitted to the client in response to the command queue being full.

  • Patent number: 10956260
    Abstract: A semiconductor memory device includes a memory cell array, an error correction code (ECC) engine, an input/output (I/O) gating circuit, and a control logic circuit. The memory cell array includes a data region and a parity region. The I/O gating circuit is connected to the ECC engine and the memory cell array. The control logic circuit generates control signals by decoding a command received from a memory controller. The ECC engine is configured to a first parity data based on a first write data associated with a first command. The control logic circuit is further configured to adjust a first write timing to write the first parity data in the parity region based on a receiving timing of a second command successive to the first command and a reference time interval.

  • Patent number: 10915321
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods for performing memory operations are described. An example apparatus includes a memory operation controller. The memory operation controller is configured to receive memory instructions and decode the same to provide internal signals for performing memory operations for the memory instructions. The memory operation controller is further configured to provide information indicative of a time for a variable latency period of a memory instruction during the variable latency period. In an example method, a write instruction and an address to which write data is to be written is received at a memory and an acknowledgement indicative of an end of a variable latency period for the write instruction is provided. After waiting a variable bus turnaround after the acknowledgement, write data for the write instruction is received.

  • Patent number: RE48835
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards a controller that provides individual network accessibility to a storage drive. The controller may include a first connector operative to couple with a storage-drive connector, a second connector operative to couple with a backplane connector of a multi-storage-drive chassis, memory, and processor. The controller may convert communication received through the first connector into an Ethernet protocol for output through the second connector, and convert communication received through the second connector into a storage-drive protocol for output through the first connector. A physical shape of the controller may fit adjacent to the storage-drive connector and occupy less space than is bounded by peripheral edges of an end of a separate housing of a storage drive coupled to the storage-drive connector. The controller may manage power provided to the storage drive and may coordinate with other controllers to manage power-up sequences of multiple storage drives.
