  • Patent number: 8989809
    Abstract: A mobile terminal using a common antenna to perform an NFC function and an FM-TX function is provided. The mobile terminal includes a baseband chip, an NFC chip, an FM chip, and an antenna. The NFC chip and the FM chip are connected to the baseband chip. The mobile terminal also comprises a selecting unit connected to the baseband chip, the NFC chip, the FM chip, and the antenna, for conducting the NFC chip and the antenna or conducting the FM chip and the antenna based on a control of the baseband chip. The mobile terminal proposes a single antenna for performing the NFC function and the FM-TX function. A passage between corresponding functions is conducted through the selecting unit. It is unnecessary to use an additional antenna inside the mobile terminal. Thus, the mobile terminal has more spacious capacity, and the cost of the mobile terminal is reduced.

  • Patent number: 8547261
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the field of mobile terminal technology and describes a calibration device for a mobile terminal and an ADC module thereof, the ADC module being disposed inside a baseband chip. The calibration device includes a bandgap voltage reference inside the mobile terminal platform for generating a reference voltage; the device further includes a circuit for connecting the bandgap voltage reference, the circuit being connected with the ADC module for providing the reference voltage generated by the bandgap voltage reference to the ADC module. The present invention uses a bandgap voltage reference inside a mobile terminal platform to provide voltage to an ADC module, which, during the ADC module calibration, does not require an external reference voltage source to perform the ADC calibration, and therefore greatly reduces calibration errors and improves calibration efficiency.
