Application: Providing runtime power profile tuning based on eye state in processor-based extended reality (XR) devices (Patent ID: US20240103596A1)

The patent filed by Qualcomm Inc. discloses a method for providing runtime power profile tuning in processor-based Extended Reality (XR) devices based on the user's eye state. The processor applies a default power profile and detects an eye close event using an eye blink detection circuit. Upon detecting the eye close event, the processor selects a test power profile, measures the device's operating characteristic, compares it with a reference range, and updates the power profiles accordingly. The method also includes reverting to the default power profile upon detecting an eye open event and updating the test power profile based on performance and power characteristics.

The patent further details the selection of the default power profile based on use case or OEM/ODM whitelist, reverting to the default profile upon detecting an eye open event, and updating power profiles based on performance, power, and temperature characteristics. The method also involves designating a test power profile as the default if it shows improvement over multiple eye blink windows, providing feedback for selecting profiles less frequently, and selecting new profiles based on initial operating characteristics. Additionally, the patent covers the integration of the method into various devices and includes means for applying default power profiles, detecting eye events, measuring operating characteristics, and updating power profiles in processor-based XR devices.
