  • Patent number: 9438308
    Abstract: An apparatus having a first circuit and a second circuit is disclosed. The first circuit is configured to generate a first intermediate signal by expanding a first input signal subjected to a quantization. The second circuit is configured to generate a second intermediate signal based on a second input signal. The second intermediate signal approximates an echo in the first input signal caused by the second input signal. The second circuit is also configured to generate a third intermediate signal by companding the second intermediate signal to compensate the quantization of the first input signal.

  • Publication number: 20160210982
    Abstract: A personal mobile communications device, such as a smartphone, which increases the intelligibility of the speaker, is described. The speaker reads a specified text into the personal mobile communications device. The specified text audio signals translated into electronic voice signals are compared to electronic voice signals of a predetermined standard speaker. The characteristics in the speaker's electronic voice signals which are different from the characteristics of the electronic voice signals of the standard speaker are determined. Thereafter at least some of the characteristics of the speaker's electronic voice signals are modified toward the characteristics of the electronic voice of the predetermined standard speaker before transmitting the speaker's modified electronic voice signals. The audio signals translated from speaker's transmitted and modified electronic voice signals have increased comprehensibility.

  • Patent number: 9076426
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a non-adaptive filter, an adaptive filter, and a controller. The non-adaptive filter may have non-adaptive filter coefficients and be configured to develop a non-adaptive error signal as a function of the non-adaptive filter coefficients. The adaptive filter may have adaptive filter coefficients and be configured to develop an adaptive error signal as a function of the adaptive filter coefficients. The controller may be configured to monitor a quality of the non-adaptive and adaptive error signals and perform one or more of a full coefficient update, a partial coefficient update and a fractional coefficient update of the non-adaptive filter coefficients based on a comparison of the quality of the adaptive error signal to a determined current best-attained performance measurement.

  • Publication number: 20040241454
    Abstract: Material with high oxygen barrier properties is prepared by evaporating polyfunctional acrylate monomer and condensing the acrylate as a monomer film on a plastic sheet, or by roll coating acrylate monomer onto a sheet in a vacuum. The acrylate is polymerized by irradiation by ultraviolet or electron beam. A layer of metal or oxide oxygen barrier material is applied over the first layer of cross-linked acrylate. A polymerized acrylate layer is applied over the metal layer. Low oxygen permeability polypropylene, polyester or nylon sheets can be made by these methods. Adhesion of the acrylate layer on the plastic sheet substrate is enhanced by reactive plasma treatment of a surface immediately before deposition, the plasma treatment and coating being conducted in vacuum within less than three seconds between plasma treatment and coating. Condensation efficiency is also enhanced by chilling the substrate of the substrate on which the acrylate is condensed to temperatures below 0° C.

  • Patent number: 6420003
    Abstract: A thermoplastic container or packaging material is given low oxygen permeability by coating with a crosslinked acrylate layer and a layer of oxygen barrier material deposited over the acrylate layer. Another acrylate layer may be deposited over the oxygen barrier. The oxygen barrier is selected from the group consisting of silicon oxide, aluminum oxide and metal. The acrylate layer may be formed from a photopolymerizable polyfunctional acrylate that is sufficiently low viscosity to be sprayed on the substrate or applied by dipping. Alternatively, the acrylate layer is a polymerization product of an acrylate monomer which is evaporated in a vacuum, condensed on the substrate and polymerized by irradiation by ultraviolet or an electron beam.

  • Publication number: 20010028921
    Abstract: Several techniques may be used for forming a colored interference filter coating on a substrate such as polyester film. The interference filter has two metal reflective films, at least one of which is semi-transparent. A layer of transparent acrylate polymer dielectric between the metal layers completes the interference filter, which may be sandwiched between protective layers. The dielectric is formed by evaporating an acrylate monomer having a molecular weight in the range of from 150 to 600. Preferably the acrylate monomer has a molecular weight to acrylate group ratio in the range of from 150 to 400. The acrylate condenses on the substrate and is polymerized in situ for forming a monolithic film with a sufficient thickness to produce an interference color. In several embodiments different areas of the film have different thicknesses for producing different interference colors.

  • Patent number: 5974138
    Abstract: A system for, and method of, detecting a customer premises equipment ("CPE") alerting signal ("CAS") on a telephone line that is carrying near-end audio traffic and CPE embodying the same. The system includes: (1) an echo cancellation circuit, coupled to the telephone line, that detects an outbound component of the near-end audio traffic and produces, in response thereto, an echo canceling signal, (2) a combinatorial circuit, coupled to the telephone line and the echo cancellation circuit, that applies the echo canceling signal to an inbound component of the near-end audio traffic to produce a resulting signal having the near-end audio traffic substantially removed therefrom and (3) a CAS detector, coupled to the combinatorial circuit, that detects the CAS in the resulting signal, the echo cancellation circuit and the combinatorial circuit cooperating to increase the reliability of the CAS detector.

  • Patent number: 5945174
    Abstract: Sheet materials according to the present invention comprise a sheet material substrate, such as for example a film or paper sheet, with a polymer release coating overlying and adhered to a surface of the sheet material substrate. Single and multilayer release coatings can be formed on the substrate by vapor deposition of silicone acrylates and/or fluorinated acrylates. These coatings can be applied in thickness of 0.05 micron to 1.0 micron to achieve a range of release properties. These coatings can be applied in a very thin single layer on relatively smooth substrates or in a multilayer form on rough substrates such as paper. The new coating process described here has lower process and materials costs, improved adhesion, low slip, and excellent release characteristics.

  • Patent number: 5737179
    Abstract: Sheet capacitive materials for use in forming a thin-film capacitor comprise an electrically nonconductive substrate, a layer of electrically conductive material disposed a surface of the substrate, and a layer of electrically nonconductive material disposed onto a surface of the conductive material layer. The conductive material layer includes a contact area along a first lengthwise edge of the substrate that is thicker than remaining portions of the material layer. A portion of the substrate adjacent a second lengthwise edge remains exposed. The electrically nonconductive material includes an anti-stick component, and covers the exposed substrate surface and a major portion of the material layer except for the contact area. A first and second sheet is constructed having contact areas along opposite lengthwise edges. The sheets are placed together so that the contact areas are oriented at opposite lengthwise edges, and are staggered so that the contact areas remain exposed.
