  • Publication number: 20140153676
    Abstract: A technique includes jointly demodulating a desired signal and an interfering signal of a received signal in response to a carrier-to-interference ratio estimate for the received signal being below a threshold level. The jointly demodulating is based on first channel impulse response coefficients associated with the desired signal and second channel impulse response coefficients associated with the interfering signal. The technique includes determining the first channel impulse response coefficients based on a first cross-correlation function between the received signal and a training sequence of the desired signal and determining the second channel impulse response coefficients based on a second cross-correlation function between the received signal and a training sequence of the interfering signal.

  • Patent number: 8649470
    Abstract: A technique includes performing non-joint demodulation of a desired signal in response to a carrier-to-interference ratio estimate for a received signal being greater than or equal to a threshold level, the non-joint demodulating being based on first channel impulse response coefficients associated with the desired signal and second channel impulse response coefficients associated with one or more interfering signals. The technique includes determining the second channel impulse response coefficients based on a first cross-correlation function between the received signal and a training sequence of an interfering signal of the one or more interfering signals, determining the first channel impulse response coefficients based on a second cross-correlation function between the received signal and a training sequence of the interfering signal, and determining a time difference between a time value of a peak in the first cross-correlation function and a time value of a peak in the second cross-correlation function.

  • Publication number: 20140031081
    Abstract: A configurable modular communication device (200) is composed of an information delivery module (204) and an information input module (202) that are matable to each other. The information delivery module is a single base unit that can work with a touchscreen keypad (216) or a number of modular keypad or other information input attachments. The information input module enables a user to change the look of the modular communication device according to personal taste and enhances its functionality to fit the exact occasion and mode of use. The information delivery module acts on its own as the navigation key and provides on its display screen menu (including an on-screen touch sensing keypad) user access to all functionality including telephone (320), PDA (personal digital assistant) (270), camera (246), clock (80), and MP3 music player (280). User-controlled navigation takes place on or in the vicinity of the display screen, whether by hard or soft key actuation.

  • Publication number: 20140016623
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and computer program product are provided to facilitate the determination of the timing advances of each of a plurality of component carriers by triggering the determination of the timing advances in response to certain pre-defined events that are indicative of a need for the timing advance to be determined. A method may include determining that a pre-defined event has occurred and triggering a determination of a timing advance for a second component carrier relative to a timing advance of a first component carrier based upon occurrence of the predefined event. In this regard, both the component carriers are concurrently allocated to a mobile terminal. The method may also utilize the timing advance to synchronize communications on the second component carrier between the mobile terminal and a network. A corresponding apparatus and computer program product may also be provided.

  • Patent number: 8532290
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention sets forth a technique for decrypting digital content in a secure environment. The technique includes the steps of receiving a digital rights management (DRM) license associated with a first frame of encrypted data from a DRM server, where the DRM license includes a decryption key for decrypting the first frame of encrypted data, transmitting the DRM license to a secure content playback pipeline for storage, and transmitting the first frame of encrypted data to the secure content playback pipeline for decryption, where, in response to receiving the first frame of encrypted data, a trusted processing entity within the secure content playback pipeline decrypts the first frame of encrypted data based on the decryption key included in the DRM license to generate a first set of decrypted data and store the first set of decrypted data in a secure memory space.

  • Publication number: 20130214577
    Abstract: A portable, compact folding furniture piece (10) constructed as a seat or table is configured for convenient storage. The folding furniture piece comprises an object support assembly (24) that is configured for operative connection to a mounting structure (12) and includes a spring mechanism (40, 42) securing together as a flexible unit a support mount (36), an articulated vertebral column (26), and a support base (38). The spring mechanism exhibits flexibility properties such that the object support assembly assumes at rest an unfolded state and, in response to an externally applied bending force, assumes a folded state. In the unfolded state, the vertebral column is substantially straight to provide a closed support surface (44). In the folded state, the vertebral column is curved to provide a raised, open support surface on which an object can rest.

  • Publication number: 20130181016
    Abstract: A hanger assembly allows a user to hang a pullover garment from its top and remove the pullover garment quickly and easily without damaging it. The hanger assembly includes a handle to which is joined an elongated flexible holder. The handle has a hook portion including a flexible tip and a holder carrier portion including first and second opposed coupling members. The flexible holder is operationally coupled for slidable engagement with the first and second coupling members to allow the flexible holder to transition between a lengthwise compressed state and a partly relaxed state to hang the garment and between the partly relaxed state and a break-free state to remove the garment without stretching its neck opening. The flexible tip prevents the hanger assembly from jumping off a hanger rod as the user pulls down on the pullover garment to remove it.

  • Publication number: 20130170593
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of producing radionuclides. According to the method, a target medium comprising at least a target nuclide material is irradiated in an irradiation zone with neutron irradiation. Radionuclides form in the target nuclide material as a result of the irradiation, and at least some of the formed radionuclides are ejected from the target nuclide material. The ejected radionuclides are then captured and collected in a carbon-based recoil capture material which does not have an empty cage structure at crystallographic level.

  • Patent number: 8433644
    Abstract: An order en route to a marketplace is delayed so that a procedure can determine whether to generate a spawned order, and the spawned order is sent to a destination for execution essentially contemporaneously with the sending of the en route order to the marketplace. The spawned order can be sent to the same marketplace or a different marketplace than the en route order is sent to. The spawned order provides additional liquidity.
