Dynamically adaptive voltage-frequency guardband control circuit

In certain aspects, a system comprises a voltage-droop mitigation circuit configured to monitor voltage droop in a supply voltage supplied to a circuit, and to perform voltage-droop mitigation for the circuit if the monitored voltage droop is equal to or greater than a droop threshold. In one aspect, the system also includes a performance monitor configured to track a number of clock cycles over which the voltage-droop mitigation circuit performs the voltage-droop mitigation within a time duration, and to adjust the droop threshold based on the number of clock cycles. ...

Ending write data transfer in i3c hdr-ddr mode

Systems, methods, and apparatus are described that enable communication of flow-control signals over a serial bus. A method performed at a device coupled to the serial bus includes transmitting first data over the serial bus, transmitting one or more preamble bits preceding second data, disabling a driver coupled to a first wire of the serial bus while transmitting the preamble bits and while the first wire is in a first signaling state, terminating data transmission when the first wire has transitioned from the first signaling state to a second signaling state while the preamble bits are being transmitted, and transmitting second data after transmitting the preamble bits when the first wire has remained in the first signaling state during transmission of the preamble bits.. ...

Data transfer ending in phase differential modes

Systems, methods, and apparatus are described that enable communication of flow-control signals over a serial bus that is operated in a phase differential mode of operation. A method performed at a device coupled to the serial bus includes transmitting first data while the serial bus is configured for a phase differential mode of operation, transmitting flow-control signaling after the first data has been transmitted, disabling a driver coupled to a first wire of the serial bus while transmitting the flow-control signaling and while the first wire is in a first signaling state, terminating data transmission when the first wire of the serial bus has transitioned to a second signaling state while the flow-control signaling is transmitted, and transmitting second data over the serial bus after transmitting the flow-control signaling when the first wire of the serial bus has remained in the first signaling state during transmission of the flow-control signaling.. ...
