Patent Number Title Of Patent Date Issued
8296739 Testing soft error rate of an application program October 23, 2012
Techniques are provided for determining consequences of an injected fault on a system running a given application program or operating system, in order to measure the software impact of a hardware soft error on the application program/operating system. The application program software is
8281075 Processor system and methods of triggering a block move using a system bus write command initiat October 2, 2012
A technique for triggering a system bus write command with user code includes identifying a specific store-type instruction in a user instruction sequence. The specific store-type instruction is converted into a specific request-type command, which is configured to include core permi
8209698 Processor core with per-thread resource usage accounting logic June 26, 2012
Processor time accounting is enhanced by per-thread internal resource usage counter circuits that account for usage of processor core resources to the threads that use them. Relative resource use can be determined by detecting events such as instruction dispatches for multiple threads
8166345 Programming in a simultaneous multi-threaded processor environment April 24, 2012
A system, method, and product are disclosed for testing multiple threads simultaneously. The threads share a real memory space. A first portion of the real memory space is designated as exclusive memory such that the first portion appears to be reserved for use by only one of the threads
8145885 Apparatus for randomizing instruction thread interleaving in a multi-thread processor March 27, 2012
A processor interleaves instructions according to a priority rule which determines the frequency with which instructions from each respective thread are selected and added to an interleaved stream of instructions to be processed in the data processor. The frequency with which each thread
8122410 Specifying and validating untimed nets February 21, 2012
In accordance with an aspect of the present invention, specifying a portion of a circuit design to be treated as untimed by static timing analysis is performed on the RTL design by means of an attribute annotation. The process is operable to map through to the Physical Design by corr
7827388 Apparatus for adjusting instruction thread priority in a multi-thread processor November 2, 2010
Each instruction thread in a SMT processor is associated with a software assigned base input processing priority. Unless some predefined event or circumstance occurs with an instruction being processed or to be processed, the base input processing priorities of the respective threads
7657893 Accounting method and logic for determining per-thread processor resource utilization in a simul February 2, 2010
An accounting method and multi-threaded processor include a mechanism for accounting for processor resource usage by threads within programs. Relative resource use is determined by detecting a particular cycle state of threads active within the processor. If instructions are dispatched
7444547 Method, system, and product for programming in a simultaneous multi-threaded processor environme October 28, 2008
A system, method, and product are disclosed for testing multiple threads simultaneously. The threads share a real memory space. A first portion of the real memory space is designated as exclusive memory such that the first portion appears to be reserved for use by only one of the threads
7401208 Method and apparatus for randomizing instruction thread interleaving in a multi-thread processor July 15, 2008
A processor interleaves instructions according to a priority rule which determines the frequency with which instructions from each respective thread are selected and added to an interleaved stream of instructions to be processed in the data processor. The frequency with which each thread
7401207 Apparatus and method for adjusting instruction thread priority in a multi-thread processor July 15, 2008
Each instruction thread in a SMT processor is associated with a software assigned base input processing priority. Unless some predefined event or circumstance occurs with an instruction being processed or to be processed, the base input processing priorities of the respective threads
7360062 Method and apparatus for selecting an instruction thread for processing in a multi-thread proces April 15, 2008
The selection between instruction threads in a SMT processor for the purpose of interleaving instructions from the different instruction threads may be modified to accommodate certain processor events or conditions. During each processor clock cycle, an interleave rule enforcement co
7305586 Accessing and manipulating microprocessor state December 4, 2007
A microprocessor includes an externally accessible port and a serial communication bus connected to the port. An execution pipeline of the processor includes a pipeline satellite circuit coupling the pipeline to the bus. The satellite enables an external agent to provide an instructi
7155600 Method and logical apparatus for switching between single-threaded and multi-threaded execution December 26, 2006
A method and logical apparatus for switching between single-threaded and multi-threaded execution states within a simultaneous multi-threaded (SMT) processor provides a mechanism for switching between single-threaded and multi-threaded execution. The processor receives an instruction
7051221 Performance throttling for temperature reduction in a microprocessor May 23, 2006
A microprocessor includes a functional block having dynamic power savings circuitry, a functional block control circuit, and a thermal control unit. The functional block control circuits are capable of altering performance characteristics of their associated functional blocks automat
6914764 On-chip thermal sensing circuit July 5, 2005
An on-chip thermal sensing circuit is disclosed. The thermal sensing circuit including a detection circuit located on an integrated circuit (IC) for detecting a local temperature of the IC. The output of the thermal sensor has a frequency that is directly related to the local tempera
