  • Patent number: 8351379
    Abstract: In wireless system, a group of Base station (BTSs) with smaller footprints have the capability to communicate with each other as well as with the BTSs with relatively larger footprints via wireless air-interfaces. One of such example is coordinated cell systems. A coordinated cell system comprises a group of coordinated cell base stations that have the capability to communicate with each other as well as with relevant macro cell or Pico cell base stations via wireless air-interfaces. Each coordinated cell BTS consists of an over the air control unit in addition to the conventional coordinated cell BTS system. A set of protocols in the form of messages and database are also defined to enable the networking capability. This enables enhancement in performing a variety of tasks by coordinated cell systems, including interference management and coordination, registration and authentication, quality of service coordination, installation and maintenance, location services, etc.

  • Patent number: 8350736
    Abstract: An offset compensation scheme using a digital-to-analog converter (DAC) is disclosed. In some embodiments, a DAC is coupled to a circuit having an undesired current or voltage offset and is configured to at least in part compensate for the undesired current or voltage offset. For example, in some embodiments, the DAC injects current or voltage into the circuit that shifts a current or voltage of the circuit by an amount equal or similar in magnitude but opposite in polarity to a shift in the current or voltage of the circuit caused by the undesired current or voltage offset.

  • Patent number: 8347271
    Abstract: Defining a software test is disclosed. A benchmark complexity for a test case including at least one test step having a check condition and a functionality is defined. The test case is represented as a flow graph in which the check condition of each test step of the test case is represented as an edge of the flow graph and the functionality of each test step is represented as a vertex in the flow graph. A test case complexity is determined by determining a number of independent paths in the flow graph. If the test case complexity as determined based on the number of independent paths exceeds the benchmark complexity, the number of test steps in the test case is reduced.

  • Patent number: 8339723
    Abstract: A length of a separator to be skipped on the storage disk is compared with a threshold. The threshold is associated with a maximum value for which a timing loop is able to be paused without causing the timing loop to have inaccurate timing. If the length is greater than the threshold, a first split sector format is assigned to the split sector and that information is recorded. In such cases, a first portion and a second portion both include synchronization information. If the length is less than the threshold, a second split sector format is assigned to the split sector and that information is recorded. In such cases, the first portion includes synchronization information and the second portion of the split sector excludes synchronization information.
