This disclosure describes an adaptive memory address scanning technique that defines an address scanning pattern, to be used for a particular surface, based on one or more properties of the surface. In addition, a number, shape, and arrangement of sub-primitives of a surface to process in parallel may be determined. In one example of the disclosure, a memory accessing method for graphics processing comprises, determining, by a graphics processing unit (GPU), properties of a surface, determining, by the GPU, a memory address scanning technique based on the determined properties of the surface, and performing, by the GPU, at least one of a read or a write of data associated with the surface in a memory based on the determined memory address scanning technique.



SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CREATING ALIASED MAPPINGS TO MINIMIZE IMPACT OF CACHE INVALIDATION

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 08:00:00 EDT

A parallel processor and a method of reducing texture cache invalidation are disclosed. In one embodiment, the parallel processor includes a cache configured to receive lines of data; and a parallel execution unit associated with the cache and configured to execute parallel counterparts of an operation. The parallel counterparts, when executed, are configured to create, in the cache, corresponding aliases of a line of data pertaining to the operation such that the parallel counterparts are operable to invalidate only the corresponding aliases.



AUTOMATED GEOSPATIAL IMAGE MOSAIC GENERATION WITH MULTIPLE ZOOM LEVEL SUPPORT

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 08:00:00 EDT

Generation of a plurality of orthomosaic image layers for a geographical area, wherein the layers comprise different spatial resolutions and are radiometrically normalized to facilitate improved radiometric consistency when zooming relative to the geographic area. In applications that facilitate zooming with respect to a geographic area imaged by the orthomosaic layers, radiometric normalization of the orthomosaic image layers may reduce radiometric discontinuities when zooming in, zooming out, and/or panning a displayed portion that is output to the user. The orthomosaic layers may be generated based on one or more orthomosaic image layer or may be developed independently using a source images. In any regard, the radiometric normalization may include generating a normalization function based on image metadata that is calculated and may be independent of the spatial resolution of the image.



Electronic Device With Shared Near Field Communications and Sensor Structures

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 08:00:00 EDT

An electronic device may have electrical components such as sensors. A sensor may have sensor circuitry that gathers sensor data using a conductive structure. The sensor may be a touch sensor that uses the conductive structure to form a capacitive touch sensor electrode or may be a fingerprint sensor that uses the conductive structure with a fingerprint electrode array to handle fingerprint sensor signals. Near field communications circuitry may be included in an electronic device. When operated in a sensor mode, the sensor circuitry may use the conductive structure to gather a fingerprint or other sensor data. When operated in near field communications mode, the near field communications circuitry can use the conductive structure to transmit and receive capacitively coupled or inductively coupled near field communications signals. A fingerprint sensor may have optical structures that communicate with external equipment.

The electronic device includes an input sensing module that detects at least two inputs and a processor that controls the electronic device to perform a function corresponding to an input received through the input sensing module, wherein the input sensing module includes at least one fingerprint recognition sensor, at least one touch sensor, and an input processor electrically connected to the at least one fingerprint recognition sensor and the at least one touch sensor and that processes an input received from the at least one fingerprint recognition sensor or the at least one touch sensor and that transfers the input to the processor.



USER INTERFACE DISPLAYING A TEMPORAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A HEALTH EVENT INDICATOR AND MONITORED HEALTH CONDITIONS

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 08:00:00 EDT

Techniques for generating a user interface for monitoring biometric data. Embodiments generate a first portion of the user interface by plotting values of a first biometric parameter on a first graph structure with respect to a first interval of time and generate a second portion of the user interface by plotting values of a second biometric parameter on a second graph structure with respect to a second interval of time that overlaps with only a portion of the first interval of time. Upon receiving a user selection specifying a first position within the first graph structure, embodiments determine a third interval of time that is centered at a moment in time corresponding to the specified first position and update the second graph structure by plotting a third plurality of values of the second biometric parameter on the second graph structure, with respect to the third interval of time.



GRAPHICAL PRESENTATION OF MEDICAL DATA

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 08:00:00 EDT

Methods and user interfaces are provided for the display of data comprising series of data over time, with particular application to medical laboratory results and prescriptions of medication. A user may view multiple results simultaneously in a single display, with the abilities to zoom the time scale in and out and to select the time period for which results are displayed. Multiple displayed items of data may be selected for simultaneous display along a common time axis in a zoomable graph, facilitating interpretation of relationships between and/or among data items.
