  • Patent number: 11368346
    Abstract: A constellation of many satellites and associated ground stations provide communication service to user terminals. These devices use modulation techniques such as orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) to send large quantities of data. For transmission, a power amplifier increases the amplitude of a waveform modulated in this way. The power amplifier operates more efficiently closer to saturation. However, operation at saturation results in nonlinear distortion, producing unwanted signals and increasing bit error rate. A set of techniques are used to reduce the peak to average power ratio (PAPR) of the waveform provided to the power amplifier. A distortionless technique remaps blocks of bits to reduce the resulting PAPR of that block. Additional techniques may also be progressively applied to reduce PAPR while minimizing adverse consequences such as in-band distortion, out of band emissions, increased bit error rate, and so forth.

  • Patent number: 11337263
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. Wireless devices may support parallel communications over multiple wireless links, which may benefit a wireless system in terms of throughput and latency (among other benefits). However, such systems may experience increased system complexity, which may in some cases mitigate some of the benefits provided by the parallel communication links. The described techniques provide for aggregation architectures that address various such complexities. For example, devices communicating in accordance with the described techniques may format data to be transmitted into a set of data units that are allocated to a communication link based on various factors described herein. Correspondingly, a device that receives the data packets may reorder the packets in accordance with the described techniques.
