A video controller that enables applications operating in a protected, multiprocessing system to update a video memory at native speeds. In this system and method, each application is assigned a separate physical address region that identifies an alias of an application's window in the video memory. The separate physical address regions provide an addressing mechanism for an application to identify a referenced set of pixels sought to be accessed. A window mapping function within the video controller that performs only those portions of a video memory access request that references pixels contained within a visible portion of an application's window as defined by priority, size and position information in a control structure.
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.
