  • Patent number: 9151827
    Abstract: The present disclosure relate to a receiver system that removes unwanted signal components from a received signal based upon signal information from previous received signals. The receiver system has a signal generator that generates multiple signal patterns. One of the multiple signal patterns is provided to a transmit antenna that wirelessly transmits the signal pattern. A receive antenna port receives a reflected signal comprising a time-shifted version of the signal pattern and provides the reflected signal to a reception path. A feedback path extends from the reception path to a signal correction element, which selectively generates a correction signal that reduces unwanted signal components in the reflected signal. The signal correction element generates the correction signal from compensation parameters stored in a memory, which correspond to previously received reflected signals comprising the signal pattern, so that the correction signal can be used to reduce unwanted signal components in real time.
