  • Patent number: 11962862
    Abstract: Improved technical functionality is provided to dynamically select and seamlessly play advertisements immediately before playing of a recorded program upon selection of the recorded program for playing, or upon other detected events and conditions associated with the set-top-box (STB) or user. In some embodiments, this is performed by using metadata which may be delivered to and stored on a digital video recorder (DVR) prior to recording the program, providing a technical solution to enable opportunities for additional advertisement impressions. Playing of the advertisement may also or instead occur upon the recorded program finishing playing. Thus, the technical solution provides the additional opportunity for the content creator and/or the satellite television or cable service provider to sell advertising spots in addition to those already sold for breaks within the recorded program.

    Abstract: Technologies for fast boot-up of a compute device with error-correcting code (ECC) memory are disclosed. A basic input/output system (BIOS) of a compute device may assign memory addresses of the ECC memory to different processors on the compute device. The processors may then initialize the ECC memory in parallel by writing to the ECC memory. The processors may write to the ECC memory with direct-store operations that are immediately written to the ECC memory instead of being cached. The BIOS may continue to operation on one processor while the rest of the processors initialize the ECC memory.

  • Patent number: 11747400
    Abstract: Provided is a method for enabling a semiconductor test system for testing field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to operate as a device programmer by converting a serial vector format (SVF) file containing a bitstream and converting the file to a vector compatible with the semiconductor test system. When executed on an HP93K test system, as an example, the vector generates JTAG (Joint Test Action Group) signals, which program the bitstream into a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The inventive method eliminates the need for a separate computer system that is normally required to run FPGA programming software and also eliminates the need to use FPGA vendor provided JTAG programming pods. Eliminating the need for the vendor software, a separate computer system, and programming pods reduces equipment cost, maintenance, and streamlines the electrical test, evaluation, and characterization of FPGAs.

Next, the computing platform may cause a user computing device to display a graphical user interface comprising selectable graphical representations of applications associated with the enterprise technology resources. Then, the computing platform may receive a user input identifying an occurrence of a technology incident by selecting one of the graphical representations. In response to the selection, the computing platform may trace, using the generated business capability model, upstream or downstream impacts of the technology incident.

  • Patent number: 11676114
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a service ticket corresponding to an undesired state of a client device, assigning the service ticket to a technician, and coordinating a remote control session between a technician device and the client device. The method includes obtaining a set of actions performed under remote technician control to transition the client device from the undesired state to a desired state. Each action describes one or more user interface interactions with the client device. The method includes storing a resolution profile (RP) based on the set of actions and textual descriptors. The method includes classifying a second service ticket received from a second client device. The method includes, in response to the classification indicating that the RP is applicable to the second service ticket, selectively instructing a software agent executing on the second client device to programmatically replay the set of actions from the RP without technician intervention.

  • Patent number: 11586527
    Abstract: A model of an algorithm to be tested is created based on the steps that the algorithm uses to implement a particular function. The model is used by an algorithm verification process to control execution of the application under test. Stubs (small pieces of code) are inserted into the application under test which are used to control execution of the algorithm to determine the result of execution of the algorithm at various locations. The remote stubs enable the testing framework to control execution of the application, stop execution of the application, view data structures associated with the application, freeze system behavior, induce multi-layered dependent sequences, analyze logs, change system flow based on test requests, examine internal data structures as part of the tests, and verify that each method and the combined results of the methods are as expected, based on the original definition of the application algorithm.

    Abstract: Examples described herein include systems and methods for retaining information about bad memory pages across an operating system reboot. An example method includes detecting, by a first instance of an operating system, an error in a memory page of a non-transitory storage medium of a computing device executing the operating system. The operating system can tag the memory page as a bad memory page, indicating that the memory page should not be used by the operating system. The operating system can also store tag information indicating memory pages of the storage medium that are tagged as bad memory pages. The example method can also include receiving an instruction to reboot the operating system, booting a second instance of the operating system, and providing the tag information to the second instance of the operating system. The operating system can use the tag information to avoid using the bad memory pages.
