  • Patent number: 7852203
    Abstract: In one illustrative example, a vehicular flasher unit is operative to provide a heartbeat flasher scheme in vehicle flasher lights. One illustrative technique in the vehicular flasher unit involves monitoring a flasher enable input to identify a flasher enable signal and producing, at a light illumination output in response to identifying the flasher enable signal, a heartbeat flashing scheme in the vehicle flasher lights. The heartbeat flashing scheme has a repeating sequence of two heartbeat pulse flashes in the vehicle flasher lights which include a first heartbeat pulse flash and a second heartbeat flash. Each first heartbeat pulse flash has a first peak intensity in the vehicle flasher lights and each second heartbeat pulse flash has a second peak intensity in the vehicle flasher lights that is preferably different from the first peak intensity.

  • Patent number: 7199704
    Abstract: In one illustrative example, a vehicular flasher unit has control circuitry; memory which is accessible by the control circuitry and having a plurality of pulse width modulation (PWM) flasher scheme data sets stored therein which correspond to a plurality of flasher schemes for vehicle flasher lights of a vehicle; a flasher scheme selection input to the control circuitry; a flasher enable input to the control circuitry which enables a flasher scheme in the vehicular flasher lights; and a light illumination output from the control circuitry which controls illumination of the vehicle flasher lights.

  • Patent number: 7006625
    Abstract: A cordless telephone-to-sound card interface adapter provides a connection between any standard cordless telephone system and a sound card of a computer for PC-to-PC or PC-to-telephone voice communications over the Internet. The interface adapter includes a hybrid transformer circuit for interfacing a two-wire circuit of the cordless telephone and a four-wire circuit of the computer sound card. Consisting of passive components, this hybrid transformer circuit cancels out the voice echo that would otherwise exist due to mismatched impedances between the two media and/or from leakage of the signal being transmitted and received on the same pair of telephone lines. Preferably, a Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface is provided to supply a bias voltage to the cordless telephone system through the interface adapter.

  • Patent number: 6591108
    Abstract: A cellular radio system forms a non-homogeneous channel set and utilizes a dynamic channel assignment in a cellular radio system. This combination increases the number of candidate channels with essentially the same level of interference that is experienced with respect to utilizing a homogeneous channel set with a dynamic channel set. The resulting improvement increases the call capacity of a cellular radio system without requiring additional frequency spectrum. Hence, more cellular radio subscribers can be served simultaneously.

  • Patent number: 6539203
    Abstract: A method is presented for reducing the frequency reuse factor by reducing the effects of intermodulation products in a cellular radio system. The cellular radio system constructs and stores modified channel sets that have a reduced measure of homogeneity. The cellular radio system selects a channel number from the appropriate modified channel set in order to support a call. This invention reduces radio interference, thus improving the quality of service and increasing the call capacity of the cellular radio system.
