  • Patent number: 11163834
    Abstract: Systems and methods for filtering collaboration activity to present in an activity feed. A cloud-based collaboration system is configured to identify collaboration interactions that users have taken over collaboration objects. Some of the collaboration objects or interactions are subject to access permissions as well as policy-based access rules. When a subject user interacts with a user interface, system components select a first set of user interaction events that in some way pertain to the subject user. A first filtering pass applies a first filter to determine object access permissions. After reducing the first set to a smaller second set, then a second filter corresponding to policy-based access rules is applied to the second set to form a still smaller third set of user interaction events. Characteristics of user interaction events in the third set are used to generate user-specific activity feed entries that are presented in a user interface.

  • Patent number: 11159129
    Abstract: An embodiment of the invention is a time-delay invariant predistortion approach to linearize power amplifiers in wireless RF transmitters. The predistortion architecture is based on the stored-compensation or memory-compensation principle by using a combined time-delay addressing method, and therefore, the architecture has an intrinsic, self-calibrating time-delay compensation function. The predistortion architecture only uses a lookup table to conduct both the correction of non-linear responses of a power amplifier and the compensation of any time-delay effects presented in the same system. Due to the time-delay invariant characteristic, the predistortion design has a wider dynamic range processing advantage for wireless RF signals, and therefore can be implemented in multi-carrier and multi-channel wireless systems.
