Methods of treating an ultra-low permeability subterranean formation having a fracture complexity comprising interconnected fractures including providing a fracturing fluid comprising a base fluid and coated proppant, wherein the coated proppant comprise proppant coated with a degradable material; introducing the fracturing fluid into the ultra-low permeability subterranean formation at a rate and pressure above a fracture gradient of the ultra-low permeability subterranean formation; placing the coated proppant into a fracture of the interconnected fractures so as to form a temporarily impermeable proppant pack comprising the coated proppant therein and reduce or prevent the extension of the fracture; reducing the pressure below the fracture gradient; and degrading the degradable material coated onto the coated proppant so as to cause the temporarily impermeable proppant pack to become a permeable proppant pack.. .

On-chip bus arbitration method and device thereof
A method and device for on-chip bus arbitration are disclosed. The method includes: dividing devices into a first level, a second level and a third level from high to low; and in each arbitration period, calculating remaining processing time of each real-time transaction, and upgrading a device making a request required to be processed immediately to the first level in the current arbitration period; monitoring bandwidth usage amount of devices of the first level and the second level respectively, and downgrading a device whose bandwidth usage amount exceeds a preset bandwidth threshold value to the third level in the current arbitration period; and in devices making requests for a bus use right, if a device of the highest level is the device of the first level, authorizing the device of the first level; and if it is not the device of the first level, authorizing a device making continuous requests..
