  • Patent number: 10673663
    Abstract: A physiological information collecting system and a transceiver device thereof are configured to collect physiological information from animal bodies. The transceiver device includes a front-end circuit, a follower circuit, a quadrature delay line and an output circuit. The front-end circuit separates a discontinuous signal into an in-phase signal and a quadrature signal. The follower circuit outputs a control voltage and rotates the in-phase signal by a predetermined phase angle to output a follower signal. The quadrature delay line rotates the quadrature signal by a corresponding phase angle according to the control voltage. The output circuit synthesizes the follower signal and the quadrature signal and outputs a data signal by demodulating the discontinuous signal.

  • Patent number: 10660033
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described for wireless communication at a UE. A user equipment (UE) may perform an initial access procedure to establish a connection with a serving cell. The UE may then arrange a regular transmission schedule with the serving cell including a discontinuous transmission (DTX) cycle and an acknowledgement schedule. The UE may enter a low power mode and refrain from any transmission during the a sleep interval of the DTX cycle. The UE may then wake up and transmit a message to the serving cell after the sleep interval without performing another access procedure. The UE may perform another access procedure to transmit at times not covered by the regular transmission schedule. For example, if an acknowledgement (ACK) for the message isn't received, the UE may perform another access procedure for retransmission.

  • Patent number: 10477581
    Abstract: Access priority for wireless devices located in an area in which radiofrequency (RF) coverage areas of a first wireless access point and a second wireless access point overlap is controlled by coordinating operation of the first wireless access point and the second wireless access point. The wireless devices access a common RF channel via a collision sense multiple access/collision avoidance mechanism. The probability of accessing the RF channel may be varied by adjusting the length of interframe spacings and the length of contention windows. The length of the interframe spacings and the length of the contention windows associated with the first access point and associated with the second access point are configured such that the probability of wireless devices associated with the first wireless access point accessing the RF channel is greater than the probability of wireless devices associated with the second wireless access point accessing the RF channel.
