  • Patent number: 9258653
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, a system for processing an incoming signal for audio application includes a parameter extraction module coupled for receiving an incoming signal having a first frequency that is configured to extract at least one parameter from the incoming signal. The system includes at least one oscillator and at least one processing engine processing that receives a clock signal from the at least one oscillator. In accordance with another embodiment, a method is provided that performs a first processing with the clock signal and generates an oscillator control signal for adjusting the frequency of the clock from the oscillator adaptively depending on parameters of the incoming signal extracted or analyzed in the first processing.

  • Patent number: 9224127
    Abstract: An adaptable user interface is formed based on a role assumed by a user and the identification of tasks in a process that need to be performed. For each role assumed by the user, a set of tasks assigned to the role is identified. Each task is evaluated to determine if it is an active task that needs to be performed in one or more processes. For each active task, an element is added to the user interface.

  • Patent number: 8929574
    Abstract: A hearing aid has means (15) for detecting fast transients in the input signal and means (16, 12, 13) for attenuating the detected transients prior to presenting the signal with the attenuated transients to a user. Detection is performed by measuring the peak difference of the signal upstream of a band split filter bank (11) and comparing the peak difference against at least one peak difference limit. Then, if a transient is detected, a state machine (20) analyzes the peak level and the absolute average level of the signal and engages a gain calculator (12) to follow either the peak level or the absolute average level of the input signal for at least the duration of the transient in order to attenuate the transient. The engagement of the gain calculator (12) is performed in each frequency band dependent of the detected transient. The invention further provides a method for detecting fast transients.
