1st Invent:  Jim C. Chou (San Jose, CA)
Inventors:  Genders: F=1, M=1
Abstract:
2000 char max
Methods and systems include neural network-based image processing and blending circuitry to blend an output of the neural network to compensate for potential artifacts from the neural network-based image processing. The neural network(s) apply image processing to image data using one or more neural networks as processed data. Enhance circuitry enhances the image data in a scaling circuitry to generate enhanced data. Blending circuitry receives the processed image data and the enhanced data along with an image plane of the processed data. The blending circuitry also determines whether the image processing using the one or more neural networks has applied a change to the image data greater than a threshold amount. The blending circuitry then, based at least in part in response to the change being greater than the threshold amount and/or edge information of the image data, blends the processed data with the enhanced data.

Inventors:  Genders: F=0, M=5
Abstract:
2000 char max
Disclosed techniques relate to ray intersection processing for ray tracing. In some embodiments, ray intersection circuitry traverses a spatially organized acceleration data structure and includes bounding region circuitry configured to test, in parallel, whether a ray intersects multiple different bounding regions indicated by a node of the data structure. Shader circuitry may execute a ray intersect instruction to invoke traversal by the ray intersect circuitry and the traversal may generate intersection results. The shader circuitry may shade intersected primitives based on the intersection results. Disclosed techniques that share processing between intersection circuitry and shader processors may improve performance, reduce power consumption, or both, relative to traditional techniques.

Embodiments disclosed herein relate to improving a power output of a transmitter of an electronic device. To do so, the transmitter may include signal selection circuitry to adjust a sign selection signal to accurately transition between polarities of a quadrature (e.g., I or Q) component signal stored in or for which an indication is stored in a storage cell of a radio frequency digital-to-analog converter. The sign selection signal may generate a separate adjusted sign selection signal for each polarity of each quadrature component signal such that a transition of the selection signal between a first value and a second value (e.g., logic high and low) occurs when the respective quadrature (e.g., +/ and I/Q component signal is a logic low. In this way, the signal selection circuitry reduces an error pulse in the output of the transmitter.

Methods and apparatus for efficient data transfer within a user space network stack. Unlike prior art monolithic networking stacks, the exemplary networking stack architecture described hereinafter includes various components that span multiple domains (both in-kernel, and non-kernel). For example, unlike traditional ''socket'' based communication, disclosed embodiments can transfer data directly between the kernel and user space domains. Direct transfer reduces the per-byte and per-packet costs relative to socket based communication. A user space networking stack is disclosed that enables extensible, cross-platform-capable, user space control of the networking protocol stack functionality. The user space networking stack facilitates tighter integration between the protocol layers (including TLS) and the application or daemon. Exemplary systems can support multiple networking protocol stack instances (including an in-kernel traditional network stack).

Signal energy in auditory sub-bands of an input audio signal is determined. Sound pressure level, SPL, in those sub-bands is then determined, based on the signal energy and based on sound output sensitivity of the against-the-ear audio device. In one instance, at least first and second gain lookup tables are determined based on a hearing profile of a user of the against-the-ear audio device. Sub-band gains that are to be applied to the input audio signal are determined based on the determined SPL. When the input audio signal is for example telephony the sub-band gains are computed using the first gain lookup table, and when the input audio signal is for example media the sub-band gains are computed using the second gain lookup table. Other aspects are also described and claimed.
