Before a data transfer between an external I/O device (such as an SDIO card, other SDIO device, or USB device) and an I/O host controller of a compute device, tuning registers of the I/O host controller may be set. If the data transfer is unsuccessful, the compute device may access a table stored in the I/O host controller (or stored elsewhere in the compute device) which includes other sets of values of the tuning registers that may be used to successfully transfer data, and then attempt the data transfer with another set of values of the tuning registers. In order to initialize the table with sets of values that may be used, the compute device first performs test data transfers with various settings of the tuning registers.

  • Patent number: 10824766
    Abstract: Technologies for USB device policy enforcement include a computing device having a USB controller and secure enclave support. On boot, a firmware enclave randomly generates a binding identity and then securely provisions the binding identity to the USB controller. The firmware enclave also seals the binding identity to a policy enforcement enclave. At runtime, the policy enforcement enclave unseals the binding identity and includes the binding identity in a policy enforcement command sent to the USB controller. The USB controller verifies that the binding identity included in the command matches the binding identity that was previously provisioned. If the binding identities are successfully verified, the USB controller enforces the command. The USB controller may block data transfers or device configuration changes for one or more specified devices. Each of the firmware enclave and the policy enforcement enclave are trusted execution environments. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

A code load driver is provided that receives code load operation information for an event during a code load operation in the storage system. The code load operation information indicates an error in the code load operation at a time of the event. A portion of the code load inform is processed by a machine learning to obtain a label indicating whether to halt the code load operation. In response to a label indicating the code load operation is to be halted, the code load operation is halted.

  • Patent number: 10783939
    Abstract: A printed circuit board (PCB) includes first and second integrated circuits (ICs) connected by way of write and read interfaces. The first IC includes a training circuitry for training the write and read interfaces. The first IC further includes read and write delay elements. The training circuitry trains the read and write interfaces (i.e., configures the read and write delay elements) for correcting signal skews that may be introduced by the read and write interfaces, respectively. The training circuitry configures the write delay element with a first write delay value for which there are no errors while writing data to a buffer memory of the second IC. The training circuitry configures the read delay element with a first read delay value for which there are no errors while reading the data from the buffer memory.

  • Patent number: 10776262
    Abstract: A memory system may include a nonvolatile memory device and a wear leveling unit. The nonvolatile memory device includes a plurality of memory blocks. The wear leveling unit may be configured to intermittently increase an accumulative access count of a memory block among the memory blocks by a predetermined value, decide a wear level of the memory block based on the accumulative access count whenever the accumulative access count is increased, set the memory block to a hot block based on the wear level, and perform a hot block management operation on the hot block. The wear leveling unit may increase the accumulative access count in response to an access count reaching a predetermined value. The accumulative access count may be stored in the nonvolatile memory device, and the access count may be stored in a volatile memory device.

  • Patent number: 10728208
    Abstract: A method for identifying an IP camera and enhancing transmission quality by packet transmission based on the ONVIF specifications is applied to a gateway device configured for data transmission to and from at least one IP camera and a network video recorder according to the ONVIF specifications. The gateway device sends a Probe packet to the IP camera after receiving therefrom a Hello packet, analyzes a ProbeMatch packet from the IP camera to identify the IP camera, relays a Resolve packet from the network video recorder to the IP camera in order to receive audiovisual data from the IP camera, and adds an exclusive group code (e.g., VLAN ID) and the highest transmission speed classification (e.g., Quality of Service) to the received audiovisual data to distinguish the audiovisual data from other network packets and give higher priority of transmission to the audiovisual data.

  • Patent number: 10698696
    Abstract: A chipset fuse programming system includes a chassis that houses a chipset with programmable fuses and a Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) that is coupled to the chipset. The BIOS includes a BIOS storage storing fuse configuration profiles. The BIOS determines a chipset type of the chipset and selects a first fuse configuration profile based on the chipset type. The BIOS then programs the programmable fuses included in the chipset using the first fuse configuration profile. A central processing system may be housed in the chassis and coupled to the BIOS, with the BIOS determining a central processing system type of the central processing system, and selecting the first fuse configuration profile based on a combination of the chipset type and the central processing system type.
