  • Patent number: 11190226
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided. an indication of a first uplink resource allocation of resource blocks for a transmission on a first carrier, and an indication of a second uplink resource allocation of resource blocks for a transmission on a second carrier are received. An indication of a downlink allocation for receiving a downlink signal is further received. A higher order intermodulation product, which is co-located with a lower order intermodulation product for the first and second allocations resulting from any respective higher order and lower order transceiver nonlinearities is identified. A determination is then made as to whether the co-located higher order intermodulation products have a region of overlap with the downlink allocation. When the co-located higher order intermodulation products have a region of overlap with the downlink allocation, adjustments in the operation are made to account for the overlap of the higher order intermodulation product and the downlink allocation.

  • Publication number: 20210357485
    Abstract: An electronic apparatus includes: a detector that detects an object present within a predetermined detection range; and an embedded controller that based on a detection result by the detector determines that the object has left the electronic apparatus when the object is no longer detected within a first detection range of the predetermined detection range after the object has previously been detected within the first detection range, and determines that the object has approached the electronic apparatus after the object is detected within a second detection range in the predetermined detection range wider than the first detection range when no objects were previously detected within the predetermined detection range. While the object determined to have left is detected within the second detection range, the embedded controller determines that the object has re-approached based on a detection position of the object moving toward the first detection range.
