  • Patent number: 10291442
    Abstract: Circuits and methods are disclosed for low-skew bonding of a plurality of data channels into a multi-lane data channel. In one embodiment, phase-measuring first-in first-out buffer circuits buffer pre-buffer parallel data signals and generate phase-measurement signals. A channel-bonding control circuit receives the phase-measurement signals and generates bit-slip control signals. Transmission bit-slip circuits slip integer numbers of bits based on the bit-slip control signals. Bypass registers may be used when the integer number of bits is greater or equal to the parallel width of a lane. In another embodiment, the channel-bonding control circuit receives the phase-measurement signals from the phase-measuring FIFO buffer circuits and generates clock-slip control signals. Clock slip circuits controllably slip parallel clock signals by integer numbers of unit intervals of a serial clock signal. Various other aspects, features, and embodiments are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10194375
    Abstract: Network signaling loads are controlled in a wireless network by monitoring traffic patterns at an access point and determining that the access point is a high turnover access point. A high turnover access point is determined based on an average time devices spend in a coverage area of the access point being below a threshold level. Beacon and/or probe response messages are generated that identify the access point as a high turnover access point. In addition, a turnover activity value may be generated for the access point and included in the beacon and/or response messages. A mobile device may determine whether to authenticate and associate with the access point based on the turnover activity value.
