  • Publication number: 20070210880
    Abstract: A system and method of carrier less modulation is described in this disclosure that uses SAW filters as a modulator in addition to their conventional use as filters for band limiting an UWB system. This system and method is primarily designed to be used with any integer cycle, ultra-wide band or impulse type modulation and more particularly is designed to work with a method of modulation named xMax. This technique exploits the impulse response of the SAW filter producing a carrier less impulse radio system with limited bandwidth, low average power, but high peak power.

  • Publication number: 20060199542
    Abstract: A method of transmitting and receiving a narrow band integer cycle or impulse modulated signal for spectrum sharing comprising modulating a carrier with a first digital data stream using an integer cycle or impulse modulator then selecting a portion of the sideband of this RF modulated signal for transmission. Next modulating the carrier with a second digital data stream using an integer cycle or impulse modulator and selecting a different portion of the sideband of this second RF modulated signal for transmission. Finally combining and filtering the first and second RF modulated signals to remove all of the first and second RF modulated signals except the selected sideband portions and the carrier which creates a low power signal when transmitted. The transmitted signal is then demodulated through use of a wavelet pass filter which nulls all received RF signals except the low power RF signal when there is digital data present thus allowing for reconstruction of the first and second digital data streams.

  • Patent number: 7058138
    Abstract: An RF signal compression technique used to transport high bit-rate data over wired or wireless means using modulated radio frequency carrier waves whose purpose is to reduce the number of radio carrier modulation events, thus reducing the amount of radio sideband emissions, while increasing the amount of information conveyed by coordinating the modulation events. More specifically an improved compression method with coordinated padding for various methods of modulation by which the spectral channel width occupied by the radio signal and the power spectrum density of said signal can be controlled by numerically adjusting the coding format in a coordinated manner allowing for coordinated modulation events which permits multiple transmissions in a coverage area greatly increasing the amount of information transmitted and available users.

  • Patent number: 7023932
    Abstract: The invention disclosed in this application discloses a method for modulating and demodulating compressed binary information that was derived from a binary information stream composed of a binary data sequence of first and second binary states that was modulated onto a carrier which has a waveform with a continuous sequence of wavelets with similar amplitudes defined by a 360 degree cycle between crossover positions representing a substantially zero energy level in which the carrier has been modulated in accordance with said binary data sequence by grouping said wavelets into wavelet groups containing two or more wavelets, receiving said information stream as a binary data sequence of first and second binary states; grouping said binary data sequence of first and second binary states into binary groups of two or more first and second binary states; correlating one of each said wavelets in said wavelet group with one of each possible binary values of each said binary groups, modulating said carrier in accordan

  • Patent number: 7003047
    Abstract: The invention disclosed in this application uses a method of modulation named Tri-State Integer Cycle Modulation (TICM) wherein a carrier signal, comprised of a continuum of sine waves is modulated such that spectrum utilization is minimal. A modulation event is imposed upon the carrier signal by modifying the carrier frequency at precisely the zero crossing point or the zero degree angle. The method of imposing the modulation event is by increasing the frequency of the carrier for one or an integer number of wavelets then lowering the frequency of the carrier for one or the same integer number of wavelets then returning to the carrier frequency to derive the modulation event. The main carrier frequency is only modulated beginning at the zero degree phase angle and ending at the 360-degree phase angle.

  • Publication number: 20060009170
    Abstract: A bandwidth control of sideband energy and compression method applied to the integer cycle methods of modulation, is now disclosed called X padding. Radio Frequency (RF) sine waves are grouped into frames of N cycles (divide-by ratio) where N is a variable power of 2 (i.e. 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, etc). This system is flexible wherein N can equal any one of these values. In the frame of N cycles, two alternate cycles are changed to the modulating frequencies. The other cycles remain precisely at the carrier frequency. The position of the alternate modulated cycles in a frame of N-cycles determines the exact binary bits that are being transmitted. This means that by sending only one modulation event where N=16, four (4) bits are transferred. For example, in a frame of 16 cycles (i.e. N=16) where the positions of the alternate modulated cycle is 6, then the four binary bits of information transmitted are 0110.

  • Publication number: 20050276353
    Abstract: A system and method to transport high bit-rate data over wired or wireless means using specially modulated radio frequency carrier waves using an integer cycle or impulse modulation detection method where the signal to be demodulated is generally split, delayed, inverted and summed. When such integer cycle or impulse modulation modulated signals are passed through the system, the delayed signal is not the inverse of the non-delayed signal when there is data present. The resultant summed signal does not cancel completely, thus, resulting in a demodulated signal that is present only as long as the data is present in the integer or impulse modulated signal. This nulling effect also results in reducing the interference from other signals thereby improving the signal to noise ratio of the system. Thus the system not only reduces the interference from other channels, but it is a very fast demodulator that has the capability of demodulating the signal on an integer cycle basis.

  • Patent number: 6968014
    Abstract: A sinusoidal R.F. carrier is modulated for the transmission of digital binary datastreams through the deletion of carrier wavelets. These wavelets are defined between zero crossover positions representing zero energy locations. One or more wavelets are switched out of the carrier at the zero crossing positions to avoid sideband generation occasioned by electromagnetic energy disturbance. Transmissional amplification as well as receptional amplification is carried out with non-resonating amplifier architecture.

  • Patent number: 6901246
    Abstract: A sinusoidal RF carrier is modulated for the transmission of digital binary data streams through the amplitude suppression of carrier wavelets. These wavelets are defined between zero crossover positions representing zero energy locations. This modulation is accomplished when the carrier is slightly amplitude modulated with a modulation signal that is equal in frequency to the carrier itself and the modulation always begins or ends upon the exact zero voltage crossing point of the RF cycle phase. The modulation is applied as a slight shift of the amplitude of any single cycle, each cycle representing a single bit of data. A single cycle of RF will either represent a “1” or “0” depending upon the amplitude of the cycle, relative to other adjacent cycles in the same carrier.
