ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 2 -- Marvell International, Hamilton, Bermuda, has been assigned a patent (8,549,342) developed by Roy G. Moss, Palo Alto, Calif., Douglas G. Keithley, Boise, Idaho, and Richard N. Woolley, Mountain View, Calif., for a "method and apparatus for fine edge control on integrated circuit outputs."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: " A device for adjusting the timing of at least one edge of an output pulse created in response to a reference pulse is disclosed. Such a device may include a first memory circuit having two or more first memory cells and a second memory circuit also having two or more second memory cells. The first memory circuit may be configured to periodically sample the reference pulse at the rising edges of a first sample clock while the second memory circuit may be configured to periodically sample the reference pulse at the falling edges of the first sample clock. A combinatorial logic circuit may also be included to produce the output pulse having at least one adjusted edge based on a set of timing instructions and timing information provided by the first and/or second memory circuits."
The patent application was filed on April 5, 2011 (13/080,079). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8549342.PN.&OS=PN/8549342&RS=PN/8549342
