  • Patent number: 7415255
    Abstract: With the objective of providing a scanning receiver capable of capturing a target radio wave in an extremely short period of time by use of a simple constituting means, a plurality of wide frequency division bands in which a full frequency range is divided into predetermined frequency ranges are set and the field intensities of received radio waves are retrieved using the output of an intermediate frequency amplifier circuit over the set wide frequency division bands in order. Further, when a received radio wave having a field intensity greater than or equal to a prescribed level is obtained upon the above retrieval, receive frequencies are swept from one end of each of the wide frequency division bands to the other end thereof. When a target radio wave can be captured upon the above sweeping, transition to the operation of receiving the target radio wave is performed.

  • Publication number: 20070281618
    Abstract: The present invention provides a transmitter-receiver for short-range wireless transmission, which comprises a frequency scan signal receiving section that searches a vacant channel frequency by frequency scanning of a receiving wave, and a signal transmitting section that transmits a transmitting wave using the searched vacant channel frequency. The frequency scan signal receiving section sequentially changes a frequency of a PLL oscillator by control of a controller to thereby search the presence or absence of a receive frequency lying in a predetermined frequency band depending on an output state of a carrier detector. When the controller detects a vacant channel frequency, the frequency scan signal receiving section fixes the oscillation frequency of the PLL oscillator to an oscillation frequency corresponding to the vacant channel frequency and supplies the fixed oscillation frequency to the signal transmitting section.

  • Patent number: 7088790
    Abstract: In demodulation of a FSK signal, a circuit for detecting a center level of said signal and correcting an error thereof is provided. Said circuit can accomplish the detection of the center level correctly always even if there exist cords with various lengths in a length of “1” or “0” of a synchronizing signal at beginning of communication and during communication, and yet frequency variation happens at that time. Said circuit has sample hold circuits SH1 and SH2 each of which are provided so as to correspond to “1” and “0” of an input demodulated data signal. In said circuit a center level value is an average value of voltages held in said sample hold circuits when said signal changes from “1” to “0” or “0” to “1” and a center level value is obtained by adding or subtracting a voltage of ½ of difference between two hold voltages held in another sample hold circuit SH3 to or from a hold voltage in a receiving side at present time when said signal keeps “1” or “0” continuously.
