A method for allocating a processing resource among multiple inputs includes defining a sequence of multiplexing iterations, each such iteration including a first plurality of windows, each such window containing a second plurality of time slots. A respective weight is assigned to each of the inputs, and each of the inputs is allotted one of the time slots in each of a respective number of the windows in each of the iterations, the respective number being determined by the respective weight. Each of the inputs is then provided with access to the processing resource during the time slots allotted thereto.
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.
