*** Tim Simon Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- Tim Simon, San Francisco, has been assigned a patent (8,306,669) developed by Blaine M. Smith, Portland, Ore., and Matthew T. Fisher, Reno, Nev., for a "method for operating a thermostatically controlled heater/cooler with fresh air intake." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A thermostat-controlled heater/cooler is used to condition air in a temperature-controlled region. A target temperature is obtained and compared to the temperature of the region to determine if heating/cooling is required. If yes, then outside air is directed into the region without operating heater/cooler and updated temperatures of the region are measured. The directing and measuring are continued until (1) the measured temperature equals the target temperature, at which time control returns to the obtaining a target temperature step, or (2) the updated measured temperature differs from the target temperature by a chosen amount, and in some examples, if the updated temperature does not reach the target temperature within a chosen length of time, or the target temperature changes, or the program segment ends, at which time directing outside air into the temperature-controlled region is stopped and the heater/cooler is operated under control of the thermostat." The patent application was filed on Oct. 30, 2009 (12/610,076).

*** International Business Machines Assigned Patent for High Performance Real-time Read-copy Update ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- International Business Machines, Armonk, N.Y., has been assigned a patent (8,307,173) developed by Paul E. McKenney, Beaverton, Ore., for a "high performance real-time read-copy update." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A technique for reducing reader overhead when referencing a shared data element while facilitating realtime-safe detection of a grace period for deferring destruction of the shared data element. The grace period is determined by a condition in which all readers that are capable of referencing the shared data element have reached a quiescent state subsequent to a request for a quiescent state. Common case local quiescent state tracking may be performed using only local per-reader state information for all readers that have not blocked while in a read-side critical section in which the data element is referenced. Uncommon case non-local quiescent state tracking may be performed using non-local multi-reader state information for all readers that have blocked while in their read-side critical section. The common case local quiescent state tracking requires less processing overhead than the uncommon case non-local quiescent state tracking."
