Byrn, Fort Collins, Colo., and Jeffrey S. Brown, Fort Collins, Colo., for a power grid optimization.


The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A global power distribution network in an integrated circuit comprising a first layer of conductive material and a second layer of conductive material. The first layer of conductive material may be (i) coupled to one or more power supplies and (ii) configured to form a plurality of first rails of a mesh. The first rails may (a) supply power to one or more components of a core logic of the integrated circuit, (b) be aligned with a first axis of the integrated circuit, and (c) have one or more parameters configured such that the mesh has a uniform voltage gradient from a perimeter of the integrated circuit to a center of the integrated circuit along the first axis. The second layer of conductive material may be (i) coupled to the one or more power supplies and (ii) configured to form a plurality of second rails of the mesh. The second rails may (a) supply power to one or more components of the core logic, (b) be aligned with a second axis of the integrated circuit, and (c) have one or more parameters configured such that the mesh comprises a uniform voltage gradient from the perimeter of the integrated circuit to the center of the integrated circuit along the second axis." The patent application was filed on June 9, 2010 (12/796,906). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,336,018&OS=8,336,018&RS=8,336,018 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** Hewlett-Packard Development Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 19 -- Hewlett-Packard Development, Houston, has been assigned a patent (8,336,054) developed by Ludmila Cherkasova, Fort Collins, Colo., Jerome Rolia, Fort Collins, Colo., and Clifford A. McCarthy, Fort Collins, Colo., for a "system and method for allocating capacity of shared resources to a workload." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method comprises defining a scheduler parameter for a maximum allocation of capacity of a shared resource to a consumer for a scheduling interval. Utilization of an allocated capacity of the shared resource by the consumer during a given scheduling interval is measured, and when the allocated capacity of the shared resource is completely utilized by the consumer during the given scheduling interval, the scheduler increases the allocated capacity of the shared resource to the defined maximum allocation for the consumer for a next scheduling interval. Thus, rather than gradually increasing the allocation of capacity over many intervals, the scheduler immediately increases the allocation to a predefined maximum amount in response to an allocated amount of capacity being completely utilized during a scheduling interval." The patent application was filed on July 20, 2006 (11/489,967). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,336,054&OS=8,336,054&RS=8,336,054 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** Dell Products Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 19 -- Dell Products, Round Rock, Texas, has been assigned a patent (8,335,966) developed by Richard F. Lary, Colorado Springs, Colo., and Damon Hsu-Hung, Providence, R.I., for a "dual parity RAID wherein no more than N+1 data symbols contribute to any parity symbol." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An efficient RAID-6 double parity erasure code scheme. Efficiency is provided by the addition of a single term to a diagonal parity equation. For example, in a five-wide layout (having five physical storage devices) the RAID-6 "parity diagonals" end up with six terms, which are the actual diagonal plus one more data block. As a result, no one data symbol contributes to the erasure code determined from the data symbols, such that no more than n+1 data symbols contribute to any one parity symbol." The patent application was filed on Aug. 3, 2009 (12/534,533). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,335,966.PN.&OS=PN/8,335,966&RS=PN/8,335,966 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Imation Assigned Patent for Hardware Acceleration of Commonality Factoring on Removable Media ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 19 -- Imation, Oakdale, Minn., has been assigned a patent (8,335,877) developed by Matthew D. Bondurant, Superior, Colo., and Steven W. Scroggs, Louisville, Colo., for a "hardware acceleration of commonality factoring on removable media." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems and methods for commonality factoring for storing data on removable storage media that may allow for highly compressed data to be stored efficiently on portable memory devices. The methods include breaking data into unique chunks and calculating identifiers, e.g., hash identifiers, based on the unique chunks. Redundant chunks can be identified by comparing identifiers of other chunks to the identifiers of unique chunks. When a redundant chunk is identified, a reference to the existing unique chunk is generated such that the chunk can be reconstituted in relation to other chunks in order to recreate the original data. One or more of the unique chunks, the identifiers, and/or the references may be stored on the portable memory device. Hardware and/or software for the chunking and/or hashing functions can reside in a host computer, a removable storage device or cartridge, and/or a removable cartridge holder." The patent application was filed on Sept. 23, 2011 (13/243,188). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,335,877.PN.&OS=PN/8,335,877&RS=PN/8,335,877 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Raytheon Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 19 -- Raytheon, Waltham, Mass., has been assigned a patent (8,335,947) developed by Gerald R. Hoffmann, Littleton, Colo., for an availability analysis tool.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "According to one embodiment, an availability analysis tool includes executable code that is operable to calculate an availability value for a system having a number of operational units. The executable code may receive one or more reliability metrics for each operational unit and designate one or more reliability metrics for at least spare unit associated with the operational unit to be similar to the one or more reliability metrics. An availability value for the system may be calculated according to the reliability metrics of the operational unit and its associated at least one hot or cold spare unit. The executable code may then output this calculated availability value to the user interface." The patent application was filed on March 25, 2008 (12/055,022). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,335,947.PN.&OS=PN/8,335,947&RS=PN/8,335,947 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
