In one embodiment of the present invention, a drive circuit includes: a logic block connected between a source of a first voltage and a source of a second voltage, and a sampler including a plurality of sampling circuits. Each sampling circuit is for sampling, in use, an input data signal and outputting a voltage to a respective output. The drive circuit further includes a voltage booster having plurality of voltage boost circuits, each voltage boost circuit being associated with a respective one of the sampling circuits and, in use, generating a boosted voltage signal and providing the boosted voltage signal to the respective sampling circuit. Each voltage boost circuit is connected between the source of the first voltage and the source of the second voltage. The logic block may be, but is not limited to, a shift register.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
