  • Patent number: 10929321
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a communication apparatus, a communication method, a program, and a communication system that enable more reliable communication. A bus IF is constituted by a master having an initiative of communication and a slave that communicates with the master under the control of the master. Additionally, the slave is provided with a detection unit that, when detecting a change in level of a signal line representing a declaration of initiation or end of communication by the master, outputs a detection signal indicating that the change in level of the signal line representing a declaration of initiation or end of communication has been detected, and a false detection avoidance unit that invalidates output of the detection signal during a specific time slot set in advance. The present technology can be applied to, for example, a bus IF that performs communication in conformity with the I3C standard.

  • Patent number: 10461885
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a communication system, and a transmission method that a restoration time from a state that a transmission of a signal between AC-coupled apparatuses is suspended can be shortened without increasing a power consumption. A first control signal is transmitted via the second signal line in a case where a transmission of the signal via the first signal line is restored from a suspended state, and that a transmission of a charging signal that charges an AC coupling capacitance serially connected to the first signal line via the first signal line is started before a timing when the transmission of the first control signal is ended. The present technology is applicable, for example, to a communication system in conformity with the eDP standard.
