  • Patent number: 6449722
    Abstract: A wireless device is provided with a plurality of connectivity options that enable it to connect to a carrier via alternative connectivity routes thereby providing access to value-added services and other information over plurality of connectivity routes. A user of the wireless device may select alternative connectivities when available based on dollar expense, available bandwidth, reliability, latency, or other considerations. Volume data delivery may be deferred until a more suitable connectivity route is established. With each change of connectivity the wireless device should reauthenticate itself. Reauthentication can be simplified by employing the previously authenticated route and leveraging the original authentication.

  • Patent number: 5768351
    Abstract: A circuit for providing an interface between a telephone set and a modem having voice processing capabilities that allows digitization of the voice to occur and provides an improved capability for the detection of a signal indicating a transfer from voice mode to data mode. A typical telephone interface consists of a `2 wire system` on which both the incoming and outgoing signals are carried simultaneously. These two signals need to be separated in order to digitize the outgoing signal. This is done using a hybrid transformer network that attempts to subtract the incoming signal from the outgoing signal. To switch from voice mode to data mode, it is necessary to `listen` for the data tones while a voice call is in progress. These tones are sent by a remote modem as a signal for the local modem to switch into data mode. These tones may be received at a very low level which can prevent the tone detection circuitry from properly functioning.

  • Patent number: 5511069
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for a processor of a computer system to control a communication device through a bus interface having six interconnects. The bus interface's first interconnect is a transmission and reception interconnect that allows the computer system to transmit and receive signals from a communication device (such as a telephone line or a radio transceiver). The second interconnect is a primary processor communication interconnect which serves as the primary communication route between the processor and a radio transceiver's microcontroller, and which enables the processor to control the various components of the radio transceiver. The third interconnect is a secondary processor communication interconnect that relays urgent signals (such as status, interrupt, and reset signals) between the processor and the radio transceiver's microcontroller.

  • Patent number: 5386438
    Abstract: A communications analog front end which functions as an analog and digital interface in combination with a microcontroller, DSP and the telephone or cellular network, with the DSP and microcontroller for coupling to the local workstation. The invention provides independent control of a digital and audio channel, with each channel having its own A/D and D/A converter pairs, separate programmable gain and attenuation on each channel, separate sample rates (e.g., from 1.2 kHz to 44.1 kHz at 8/16 bit resolutions) for the A/D converters, two low power, high stability on-chip oscillators, sample buffering on the audio channel (256 byte FIFOs) and, independent control of programmability of D/A output voltage levels, the A/D converters, and the D/A converters.

  • Patent number: 5194824
    Abstract: A unity gain amplifier based on CMOS technology designed to drive a large capacitive load such as a piezoelectric speaker with a 5V power supply. The invention utilizes a rail-to-rail voltage range (i.e., ground to power supply voltage) at its input as well as at its output and is capable of entering into a power down mode, In this manner, it is possible to produce as a single application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), a circuit for converting a digital signal to an analog signal and amplifying the analog signal so as to be capable of driving a large capacitive load with a rail-to-rail dynamic range and which operates at low noise.

  • Patent number: 4698753
    Abstract: A single chip multiprocessor interface device for interfacing between two processors by connection to their bus systems, the device having a random access memory selectively accessible by the processors under the control of an arbitration latch. The arbitration latch has a bistable device the state of which determines which processor has access to the memory. The outputs of the bistable device have threshold devices which have threshold levels higher than the signal outputs of the bistable device when it is in a metastable state, so that there is no possibility that both processors could have access to the memory at the same time. Data and address registers for the two processors are selectively connectible to the random access memory through multiplexers controlled by the arbitration latch.
