20100199056 - Fractured erase system and method: Efficient and convenient storage systems and methods are presented. In one embodiment, a fractured erase process is performed in which a pre-program process, erase process and soft program process are initiated independently. Memory cells can be pre-programmed and conditioned independent of an erase command. The initiation of the independent pre-programming... Agent: Spansion LLC C/o Murabito , Hao & Barnes LLP
20100199057 - Independent link and bank selection: Provided is a memory system that has a plurality of memory banks and a plurality of link controllers. For each memory bank, there is first switching logic for receiving output for each link controller, and for passing on the output of only one of the link controllers to the memory... Agent: Smart & Biggar P.o. Box 2999, Station D
20100199058 - Data set size tracking and management: Specified data sets may be tracked from creation to end-of-life (e.g., deletion). Between creation and end-of-life, data set storage changes may be recorded (i.e., when additional storage is allocated or when some storage is released). During a subsequent allocation cycle, this information may be used in conjunction with user-specified allocation... Agent: Wong, Cabello, Lutsch, Rutherford & Brucculeri, L.L.P.
20100199059 - Mobile communication device and method for defragging mifare memory: A mobile communication device (1) is connectable to a classic or emulated MIFARE memory (MM) and comprises a MIFARE applications manager (MAM) which parses the MIFARE memory (MM) for parts of the memory being occupied by MIFARE applications and for empty memory spaces between the occupied parts of the memory.... Agent: Nxp, B.v. Nxp Intellectual Property & Licensing
20100199060 - Memory controller, nonvolatile memory module, access module, and nonvolatile memory system: An address management part 125 manages a nonvolatile memory 110 by dividing the memory into a region 110A and a region 110B. When recording plural pieces of contents as in a normal recording, a reading-writing controller 107 writes data to the region 110A in an alternate manner. Furthermore, when recording... Agent: Greenblum & Bernstein, P.L.C
20100199061 - System and method for distributed partitioned library mapping: A system and method of media library access that utilizes distributed mapping of media library partitions. A first controller can be connected to a data transport element of a media library and a second controller can be connected to a media changer of the media library. The first controller can... Agent: SprinkleIPLaw Group
20100199062 - Managing requests of operating systems executing in virtual machines: A coordinator in a computer system receives a request from one of a plurality of operating systems (that coexist in the computer system) to invoke a service of a management routine in the computer system. The plurality of operating systems execute in respective virtual machines of the computer system. The... Agent: Hewlett-packard Company Intellectual Property Administration
20100199063 - Methods and mechanisms for proactive memory management: A proactive, resilient and self-tuning memory management system and method that result in actual and perceived performance improvements in memory management, by loading and maintaining data that is likely to be needed into memory, before the data is actually needed. The system includes mechanisms directed towards historical memory usage monitoring,... Agent: Workman Nydegger/microsoft
20100199064 - Fast address translation for linear and circular modes: The core of this invention is the application of a fast comparison circuit to the problem of address translation. Traditional implementations generate the virtual address and the physical address in series. This invention generates the physical address and virtual address simultaneously. A bitwise operation on the base address, the offset... Agent: Texas Instruments Incorporated
20100199065 - Methods and apparatus for performing efficient data deduplication by metadata grouping: The system is composed of: identifier generation program or logic, identifier confirm program or logic, plural identifier table and metadata mapping table. Data streams or data blocks, files are stored in the data storage system with metadata. The metadata includes additional information of the data and files. For example application,... Agent: Sughrue Mion, PLLC
20100199066 - Generating a log-log hash-based hierarchical data structure associated with a plurality of known arbitrary-length bit strings used for detecting whether an arbitrary-length bit string input matches one of a plurality of known arbitrary-length bit strings: Generating and using a high-speed, scalable and easily updateable data structures are described. The proposed data structure provides minimal perfect hashing functionality while intrinsically supporting low-cost set-membership queries. In other words, in some embodiments, it provides at most one match candidate in a set of known arbitrary-length bit strings that...
