Farzin Firoozmand: Memory management system and method for network controller. Advanced Micro Devices, Lowe Price Le Blanc & Becker, August 4, 1992: US05136582 (110 worldwide citation)

Transmit and receive data are stored in buffer regions defined in first and second memories of a system residing on a network. The buffer regions are pointed to by multiple descriptor rings that are also stored in the memories. In accordance with one aspect of the invention, the two memories reside ...

Farzin Firoozmand, Brian Childers: Method of and system for transferring multiple priority queues into multiple logical FIFOs using a single physical FIFO. Advanced Micro Devices, Lowe Price Leblanc and Becker, August 27, 1991: US05043981 (86 worldwide citation)

An FDDI system and method for transmitting to an optical medium, upon receipt of token, frames of synchronous data and frames of asynchronous data having different levels of priority. The network on which the FDDI is implemented includes a plurality of processors each having a system for storing the ...

Farzin Firoozmand: FDDI controller having flexible buffer management. Advanced Micro Devices, Lowe Price LeBlanc & Becker, September 21, 1993: US05247626 (82 worldwide citation)

A network interface interconnects a processor and a memory residing on a system bus having a predetermined average bus latency to a network containing other processors and memories. The interface, which is implemented using a bus master architecture, includes a network access controller for accessin ...

Farzin Firoozmand: Configuration of SRAMS as logical FIFOS for transmit and receive of packet data. Advanced Micro Devices, Lowe Price LeBlanc & Becker, May 11, 1993: US05210749 (74 worldwide citation)

Data arranged in packets are transferred between a system memory and a network bus through a SRAM configured by software pointers as first in-first out memories for transmitting (transmit FIFO) and for receiving (receive FIFO). The packets of data stored in the transmit and receive FIFOs are demarke ...

Farzin Firoozmand: Network controller with memory request and acknowledgement signals and a network adapter therewith. Advanced Micro Devices, January 30, 1996: US05488724 (47 worldwide citation)

Transmit and receive data are stored in buffer regions defined in first and second memories of a system residing on a network. The buffer regions are pointed to by multiple descriptor rings that are also stored in the memories. In accordance with one aspect of the invention, the two memories reside ...

Farzin Firoozmand, Gururaj Singh: Method of and system for implementing multiple levels of asynchronous priority in FDDI networks. Advanced Micro Devices, Lowe Price LeBlanc & Becker, June 2, 1992: US05119374 (19 worldwide citation)

The standard FDDI priority algorithm is implemented by programming Token Holding Time (THT) threshold values for asynchronous service either in an increasing or decreasing order as a function of token holding time. If the thresholds are programmed in a decreasing order, all higher priority data is s ...
