William D Miller, Gary L Harrington, Lawrence M Fullerton: Storage of compressed data on random access storage devices. Ceram, John G Graham, August 17, 1993: US05237460 (181 worldwide citation)

A random-access type storage device such as a hard disk or semiconductor memory is formatted to provide multiple partitions of varying block size. The data to be stored is in blocks of fixed size, and these blocks are compressed if the compressed size fits in the block size of a small-block partitio ...

Joseph H Neal, Paul A Reed: Virtual ground MOS EPROM or ROM matrix. Texas Instruments Incorporated, John G Graham, July 28, 1981: US04281397 (121 worldwide citation)

An array of rows and columns of memory cells of the virtual ground type employs a cell layout which has one column line per column instead of requiring extra lines for ground. Half of the column lines are used as outputs and half as ground. One output line and one ground line are selected by improve ...

Yeshayahu Artsy: Routing objects on action paths in a distributed computing system. Digital Equipment Corporation, John G Graham, Arthur W Fisher, A Sidney Johnston, December 23, 1997: US05701484 (113 worldwide citation)

A system for routing an "object" (in the sense that object means an abstraction that encapsulates data in a known way, with a known list of operations or methods to access the data, and the object has a unique identity, is mobile, and possibly persistent). The "object" is routed in a distributed com ...
