  • Patent number: 9923592
    Abstract: Described herein are technologies related to an implementation of a system to measure and compensate non-linearity (e.g., echo cancellation) in a transceiver circuitry of a device. Particularly, the echo cancellation utilizes reduced number of components for power savings, and further increases efficiency of signal or data packet transmissions in the device. An echo signal is determined by sampling a power amplifier output signal. The output signal is split into signals with different delays. Down conversion and digital interpolation of the signal with the shortest delay is performed. An echo cancellation signal is calculated based on the output signal as received as an input signal to a receive chain. The calculated signal is subtracted from a received echo signal to generate an echo free signal.

  • Patent number: 9894507
    Abstract: A peer device has a proximity sensor that detects proximity to another object. Responsive to that detection, the peer device obtains a set of results that comprises results of different types of measurements. The set of results is sensitive to a location of the peer device and a time at which the measurements are performed by the peer device. The peer device configures itself to be discoverable by other peer devices. Responsive to wirelessly connecting with a target peer device that is also discoverable, the peer device determines an extent to which the obtained set of results matches a corresponding set of results obtained by the target peer device. Responsive determining that the sets of results respectively obtained by the devices match to a required extent, the peer device automatically transmits or receives application-specific data over an unauthenticated, non-persistent communication session between the peer device and the target peer device.
