Qualcomm Incorporated is an American global semiconductor company that designs and markets wireless telecommunications products and services. The company headquarters are located in San Diego, California, USA. The company has 157 worldwide locations. The parent company is Qualcomm Incorporated , which includes the Qualcomm Technology Licensing Division . Qualcomm's wholly owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. , operates substantially all of Qualcomm's R&D activities, as well as its product and services businesses, including its semiconductor business, Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. In November 2014, Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf announced at the company’s annual analyst day meeting held in New York City that the company is planning to target the data center market with new server chips based on ARM technology and plans to make them commercially available by the end of 2015.

An image capturing system and a method of autofocusing are disclosed such that, for example, when a folded optics configuration is used, a field corrector lens can be placed on the image sensor of the system and a plurality of lenses can be placed perpendicular to the image sensor. The plurality of lenses can be movable relative to the image sensor such that acceptable MTF curve performances can be obtained when the image capturing system is focused at reference distances..


Latency-based power mode units for controlling power modes of processor cores, and related methods and systems are disclosed. In one aspect, the power mode units are configured to reduce power provided to the processor core when the processor core has one or more threads in pending status and no threads in active status. An operand of an instruction being processed by a thread may be data in memory located outside processor core. If the processor core does not require as much power to operate while a thread waits for a request from outside the processor core, the power consumed by the processor core can be reduced during these waiting periods. Power can be conserved in the processor core even when threads are being processed if the only threads being processed are in pending status, and can reduce the overall power consumption in the processor core and its corresponding CPU.


Transport accelerator (TA) systems and methods for delivery of content to a user agent (UA) of the client device from a content server are provided according to embodiments of the present disclosure. Embodiments of a TA operate to subdivide, by a request manager (RM) of the TA, fragment requests provided by the UA each into a plurality of chunk requests for requesting chunks of the content and to provide, by the RM to a connection manager (CM) of the TA, chunk requests of the plurality of chunk requests for requesting chunks of the content. Requests may thus be made, by the CM, for the chunks of the content from the content server via a plurality of connections established between the CM and the content server.

In an example, a method of coding video data includes coding, by a video coder, at least a portion of a picture of an independently decodable non-base layer of a multi-layer bitstream. The method also includes coding, by the video coder, data indicating a picture order count (POC) value reset for a POC least significant bits (LSB) value of the picture only when the picture has a POC LSB value for the picture is equal to zero.

Aspects described herein relate to modulating control data in wireless communications. First control data for a first device can be modulated in an enhancement layer of a control data resource based at least in part on whether the control data resource includes second control data for a second device, and transmitted over the control data resource. A signal can be received from an access point comprising at least one control data resource. One of a plurality of modulation schemes utilized to modulate the at least one control data resource and an associated layer can be determined. The signal can be demodulated according to the one of the plurality of modulation schemes and the layer to obtain control data in the at least one control data resource.


In an example a method of processing video data includes determining a run value that indicates a run-length of a run of a palette index of a block of video data, wherein the palette index is associated with a color value in a palette of color values for coding the block of video data, the method also includes determining a context for context adaptive coding of data that represents the run value based on the palette index, and coding the data that represents run value from a bitstream using the determined context.


Various embodiments of methods and systems for energy efficiency aware thermal management in a portable computing device that contains a heterogeneous, multi-processor system on a chip (SoC) are disclosed. Because individual processing components in a heterogeneous, multi-processor SoC may exhibit different processing efficiencies at a given temperature, energy efficiency aware thermal management techniques that compare performance data of the individual processing components at their measured operating temperatures can be leveraged to optimize quality of service (QoS) by adjusting the power supplies to, reallocating workloads away from, or transitioning the power mode of, the least energy efficient processing components. In these ways, embodiments of the solution optimize the average amount of power consumed across the SoC to process a MIPS of workload.


Systems and methods to discover access points in wireless networks are disclosed. In one embodiment, an access point of a wireless network may be placed in a sleep mode when there is no network activity. Normally, a remote device would not be able to discover such sleeping access points because the access point is not sending out a beacon signal. Exemplary embodiments of the present disclosure provide for a remote device that may send a wake up signal to the access point. On receipt of the wake up signal from the remote device, the access point begins sending a beam formed beacon signal to the remote device to initiate registration of the remote device with the access point. By providing a way to wake a sleeping access point, wireless networks may be effectively established while concurrently saving power and reducing electromagnetic interference.

This disclosure describes techniques for 3D video coding. In particular, this disclosure is related to techniques for advanced residual prediction (ARP) in 3D-HEVC. According to one techniques of this disclosure, when performing inter-view ARP for a bi-directionally predicted block, the video coder may determine a motion vector for a first corresponding block as part of performing ARP for a first prediction direction and reuse that determined motion vector when performing ARP for a second prediction direction. According to another technique, for a bi-directionally predicted block, a video coder may apply ARP in only one direction for a chroma component of a block but apply ARP in two directions for a luma component of the block. According to another technique, a video coder may selectively apply ARP to chroma components based on block size. These simplifications, as well as other techniques included in this disclosure, may reduce overall coding complexity.
