  • Patent number: 8345547
    Abstract: When a device is contending for the right to transmit on a wide channel (composed of a primary narrow channel and one or more secondary narrow channels), it may halt its backoff counter if one of the secondary channels is detected as busy, and restart the backoff counter from its halted value when all the channels are again detected as idle. Some embodiments may use a guard interval detection technique to aid in sensing whether the secondary channels are busy.

  • Patent number: 8340961
    Abstract: A codebook generation system and associated methods are generally described herein. For instance, a codebook generation agent (CGA) may implement techniques for generating one or more matrix codebooks from vector codebooks. The CGA may be implemented in mobile devices (e.g., stations, subscriber units, handsets, laptops, etc.). In this regard, the dynamic generation of matrix codebooks rather than having them stored on the mobile device enables the mobile device to utilize the memory normally consumed by the matrix codebooks in support of other features and/or services.

  • Patent number: 8314681
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed for using a single key to authenticate a user with respect to multiple user access points and to allow a single access point to authenticate multiple keys having different physical characteristics. The system may comprise an access control system that includes an insertion receptacle for receiving a physical key, and a translation device for observing the physical characteristics of the key and translating those characteristics into electrical signals. In a learning mode, the electrical signals are transmitted to a processor and stored in memory. In a verification mode, the electrical signals are transmitted to the processor and compared with the previously-stored signals. If the processor concludes that the signals match the signals stored in memory, then the processor instructs a lock actuation mechanism to actuate an access control device to allow the user access to a location.

  • Patent number: 8300563
    Abstract: A wireless device calculates a number of FEC MPDUs based on an indicator value determined by the quality of the communication channel that are combined with data MPDUs in an aggregated data packet. The wireless device uses the indicator value to calculate an expected error transmission rate to dynamically adjust the number of FEC MPDUs in the aggregated data packet to reduce data retransmissions.

  • Patent number: 8300585
    Abstract: Machine-readable media, methods, apparatus and system for transmitting ACK/NACK signal in a wireless communication system are described. In some embodiments, a sequence corresponding to one of acknowledge (ACK) information and non-acknowledge (NACK) information may be determined. Then, the sequence may be mapped onto a transmission channel for later transmission from the mobile station to a base station. In some embodiments, the transmission channel may be allocated with at least a part of three feedback mini-tiles (FMTs), wherein each of the FMTs comprises two subcarriers contiguous in frequency domain by six orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) symbols contiguous in time domain and the three FMTs being discontinuous in frequency domain.

  • Patent number: 8291297
    Abstract: When an error correction code (ECC) unit finds uncorrectable errors in a solid state non-volatile memory device, a process may be used in an attempt to locate and correct the errors. This process may first identify ‘low confidence’ memory cells that are likely to contain errors, and then determine what data is more likely to be correct in those cells, based on various criteria. The new data may then be checked with the ECC unit to verify that it is sufficiently correct for the ECC unit to correct any remaining errors.
