    Traditional and No-ID (TM)* disk drive architectures require values to be passed between the microprocessor and other components of the disk drive electronics over a buss. In today's microprocessor external buss designs, it is very expensive to add parity to the data and/or address lines. If IDs are not available on...

    The performance of the microprocessor depends on being able to minimize the system clock skew among the various FRUs. This is a primary objective of any clock system. Also the calibration and setup of the forward path and the return path delays should be established in a minimum amount of time. The forward and...

    Air-moving devices are commonly used in the cooling designs of computer systems. In high performance computer servers and workstations, adequate cooling is critical to function and reliability. Therefore, such systems use multiple fans for adequate cooling of all components. When a fan fails in a high availability...

    Disclosed is a new disk write algorithm that uses an adaptive Spindle Motor Round Per Minutes (RPMs) optimization scheme to reduce the average access time for drive write operation. The spindle RPM for write commands from the host computing system is optimized by the microcode on hard disk drive electronics, based on...

    Many times computer users delete data or programs to generate more free disk space, therefore, allowing additional data to be stored. The deleted data is moved to a buffer area or renamed on many of today's operating systems. This buffer area and file renaming scheme gives the user the ability to restore the data...

    Disclosed is the means and method to describe an entire ADSTAR Distributed Storage Manager (ADSM) configuration from a text input file, or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) based on connected icons representing the clients, networks and server. The novelty is also the means and method to convert the icon-based...

    Cache replacement policy has become a highly critical concern since it is directly linked to the overall system performance. When a block (data item in the cache) is needed in a processor's working set, it is desired that the block exist in either the primary or secondary caches, associated with that processor, since...

    Disclosed is a method to center the sampling of data on the rising edge of the clock to avoid side effects like jitter and overshoot on transmission lines. This problem arrives generally with long cabling when data and clock are not in phase. Current transmission standards give no advices except to transmit data and...
