  • Patent number: 9509538
    Abstract: The present invention proposes a demodulator device, a receiver and a demodulation method for M-ary amplitude shift keying systems (MASK) that requires partial knowledge of the CSI, namely, the channel attenuation coefficient. Therefore, the new demodulator, receiver and demodulation method do not require the knowledge of the channel phase shift. Consequently, no complicated channel estimation techniques are required, and the system will be very robust to the system impairments such as phase noise, I-Q imbalance, etc. In this sense, the new technique is denoted as semi-coherent demodulation (SCD). To reduce the complexity of the new SCD, a suboptimal demodulator is derived which has much lower complexity than the optimal while providing almost the same error probability.

  • Patent number: 9299425
    Abstract: The embodiments herein relates to a hybrid non-volatile memory cell system and architecture for designing integrated circuits. The system comprises CMOS access transistor connected to a memristor which stores a data based on a resistance. The system has a word line for accessing the hybrid memory and two bit lines carrying data of mutually opposite values for transferring a data from the memory. The two terminals of the transistor are connected respectively to a first terminal of the memristor and to a first bit line. The gate terminals of the transistors are coupled together to form a word line. The access transistors control the two bit lines during a read and write operation. A control logic performs a read and write operation with the hybrid memory cells. The memory architecture prevents a power leakage during data storage and controls a drift in a state during a read process.

  • Publication number: 20140260714
    Abstract: The embodiment herein generally relates to a system to apply moments to a user, particularly during gait. The system is a portable gyroscopic-assisted system, mounted on a user's body, particularly the upper body, particularly to influence orientation of users having difficulty with balancing during gait. The system comprises a plurality of variable-speed control moment gyroscopes (VSCMGs). The VSCMGs generate moments, particularly to counteract a fall to any direction. The VSCMGs are placed close to the center of mass of the user. The couple moments of the VSCMGs are transmitted to the user through a support structure that is tightly attached to the user. Particularly, the system controls moments based on detecting pre-fall conditions.

  • Publication number: 20140152504
    Abstract: The various embodiments herein provide a Uniform Circular Displaced Sensor Array (UC-DSA) system and method for measuring/estimating Direction of Arrival (DOA) of a wireless signal. The UC-DSA system comprises at least a set of two circular antenna arrays. The two circular antenna arrays have a number of elements. A Radio frequency (RF) receiver captures a wireless signal incident on a circular antenna array. A Direction of Arrival (DOA) estimator processes a received input signal and a Triangulation system provides the exact location of the source of the wireless signal. The two circular antenna arrays with the same number of elements are placed on different radii, and are shifted to have equal separation between inner elements and outer elements.

  • Patent number: 8645678
    Abstract: A chaotic cryptographic technique for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) based wireless/wired communication systems is implemented with an OFDM symbol structure based on symmetric key cryptography. At the receiver side, data detection becomes infeasible without knowledge of the secret key. Without the knowledge of the key, the signal will be a noise-like signal. The computational power required to implement the technique is very low, rendering the system an attractive option for high data rate communications based on OFDM technology. The system security is proportional to (L×N)! where N is the number of subcarriers in the OFDM system and L is the number of OFDM symbols involved in the encryption process. For OFDM applications where ?256, L may be set to 1 and breaking the system would require N! exhaustive-search trials. In the case that N<256, L may be increased.
