A semi-flexible magnetic structure includes a flexible layer and a plurality of magnetizable elements adhered to the flexible layer such that there is a spacing between magnetizable elements of the plurality of magnetizable elements, where each magnetizable element of said plurality of magnetizable elements is a solid piece of magnetizable material. The spacing between magnetizable elements enables the semi-flexible magnetic structure to bend around an object.

Clock cycle compensator and the method thereof
One aspect of the present invention is to provide a method for compensating a system duty cycle of a system clock signal. The method in one embodiment comprises the following steps: locking a duty cycle center of the system duty cycle by a delay lock loop; detecting a current system duty cycle of the system clock signal; determining a duty cycle correction amount, wherein the duty cycle correction amount is a gap of the current system duty cycle from a target duty cycle; and changing a polarity of an input reference clock signal according to whether the duty cycle correction amount exceed a threshold amount or not..
