  • Patent number: 11144358
    Abstract: An exemplary system includes first and second controllers each configured to selectively operate in a master state and a standby state, a first watchdog timer associated with the first controller, and a second watchdog timer associated with the second controller. Each watchdog timer is configured to be either unexpired or expired. Selectively, the first controller operates in the master state and the second controller operates in the standby state when the first watchdog timer is unexpired and the second watchdog timer is expired, the first controller operates in the standby state and the second controller operates in the master state when the first watchdog timer is expired and the second watchdog timer is unexpired, and the first and second controllers both operate in the standby state when both the first and the second watchdog timer are expired or when both the first and the second watchdog timer are unexpired.

  • Patent number: 11138683
    Abstract: Provided are a consultation service apparatus of an automatic civic service system and an information processing method. A user holds an application document and identity credentials and operates a consultation service apparatus at a public area. The consultation service apparatus is connected to at least one business/institutional organization at a remote end through a network. The consultation service apparatus acquires image information of the application document and the identity credentials through an image scanner, confirms validity of the image information and performs service classification thereon, transmits the image information to a corresponding organization according to a classification result, and generates a certificate of completion for proof of completion of all procedures. By virtue of the automatic application submission mechanism, social cost can be reduced and working efficiency can be enhanced.

  • Patent number: 11137733
    Abstract: A power system capable of detecting a foreign object, includes a power supplier side, a power receiver side, and a cable. The power supplier side includes a power converter, a foreign object detection and control circuit, and a pull-up circuit. The power converter supplies a supply voltage to the power receiver side according to a power supply control signal. The foreign object detection and control circuit generates the power supply control signal for controlling the power converter, and generates a foreign object detection and control signal according to a voltage at a supplier transmission node of the power supplier side, for determining whether a foreign object exists in the power receiver side. The pull-up circuit adjusts a level of a supply current which is supplied from the supplier transmission node to the power receiver side.

  • 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.
