  • Patent number: 11558081
    Abstract: Technologies directed to data transfer protocols for Ultra-Wideband (UWB) are described. One method includes a UWB radio of a first device receiving first data from an application. The first device sends data to second and third devices, the data identifying a number of data rounds, a duration of each round, a duration of a data slot, a duration of a data block, and a first slot index for the second device and a second slot index for the third device. The first device sends, during a first slot associated with the first slot index, the first data to the second device using the UWB radio. The first device sends, during a second slot associated with the second slot index, the first data to the third device using the UWB radio.

  • Patent number: 11558236
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for mitigating phase noise at high frequencies in 5G and 6G. Quadrature modulation schemes, in which orthogonal branches are amplitude modulated, are susceptible to phase noise which rotates the branches, causing demodulation faults. Disclosed is a single-branch reference signal that can mitigate phase noise. The transmitter can transmit a particular resource element having a normal amplitude in one branch, and zero amplitude in the orthogonal branch. The receiver can then measure the amplitudes of the particular resource element as-received (with phase noise), and determine a phase rotation angle according to a ratio of the two branch amplitudes. The receiver can then correct the branch amplitudes of each message element, and thereby negate the effect of the phase noise. The disclosed procedures can thereby make high-frequency, high-reliability communication feasible, at extremely low cost.

  • Patent number: 11549822
    Abstract: A method monitors a sensor clock signal in a sensor unit, which is generated and output for a data transfer between the sensor unit and a control unit with a predefined period duration. A reference clock signal having a predefined reference period duration is received. The sensor clock signal is compared to the reference clock signal. Based on the comparison, a deviation of the current period duration of the sensor clock signal from a target period duration is detected. Based on the detected deviation, a counting pulse or a reset pulse is emitted.

  • Patent number: 11515859
    Abstract: An integrated circuit for generating an equalized signal, according to a channel, from serial data includes a shift register that extracts a symbol sequence from the serial data. A data storage stores values of an equalized digital signal corresponding to potential symbol sequences corresponding to a filter coefficient sequence. A lookup table outputs the equalized digital signal of a value corresponding to the extracted symbol sequence. A digital-to-analog converter (DAC) converts the equalized digital signal into the equalized signal. A controller refreshes the lookup table, based on at least one of values stored in the data storage and values included in the lookup table, in response to a control signal.

  • Patent number: 11509338
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for optimizing offset compensation in a receiver with multiple offset compensation D/A converters. At each stage where offset cancellation is applied, there is a fan-out of two or more. At the final stage, comparator offset compensation codes are summed and compared against a digital reference. In one version the digital reference is zero. A second implementation has a non-zero digital reference which is the sum of comparator offsets stored from start up. The difference between the sum of offsets and digital reference is applied to a digital accumulator. The most significant bits of the digital accumulator are applied to a digital D/A converter, which cancel analog offsets in an intermediate stage of amplifiers. The summation of offsets feeding into an accumulator is implemented for all preceding stages.

  • Patent number: 11496341
    Abstract: Examples described herein include methods, devices, and systems which may compensate input data for I/Q imbalance or noise related thereto to generate compensated input data. In doing such the above compensation, during an uplink transmission time interval (TTI), a switch path is activated to provide converted input data to a receiver stage including a recurrent neural network (RNN). The RNN may calculate an error representative of the noise based partly on the input signal to be transmitted and a feedback signal to generate filter coefficient data associated with the I/Q imbalance. The feedback signal is provided, after processing through the receiver, to the RNN. During an uplink TTI, the converted input data may also be transmitted as the RF wireless transmission via an RF antenna. During a downlink TTI, the switch path may be deactivated and the receiver stage may receive an additional RF wireless transmission to be processed in the receiver stage.
