  • Publication number: 20170250818
    Abstract: Devices and methods for securely upgrading devices, such as field upgradeable units, are disclosed. In response to receiving an update object, a device may determine whether a predefined location of memory includes a predetermined value. Based on the value in the predefined location, the device may store the received update object in a verification portion of the memory. After verifying the authenticity of the update object, the device may copy the update object from the verification portion of the memory to an inactive portion. The inactive portion of the memory can be swapped with an active portion of the memory, such that the inactive portion becomes active.

  • Patent number: 8069395
    Abstract: An Error Correction Code (ECC) encoding module encodes an input data word by calculating parity bits according to an ECC index mapping. An ECC correction/detection module receives the encoded data word that may have become corrupted due to noise or distortion. The ECC correction/detection module executes a parity calculation on the encoded data word based on the ECC index mapping. Based on the parity calculation, the ECC correction/detection module can detect and correct a single bit error, detect if there is an error to an even number of bits, and detect the occurrence of a three consecutive bit burst error.

  • Publication number: 20070025343
    Abstract: An arrangement which includes a telephone and an interface unit, which interfaces the telephone to both a standard switched telephone communications network and an Internet communications network, is disclosed. The interface unit includes an input coupled to the telephone to receive audio information and two output ports configured to be respectively coupled to the standard switched telephone communications network and the Internet communications network. A processing unit couples the audio information received from the telephone to the first output port when the telephonic communication is to be performed using the standard switched telephone communications network. Alternatively, the processing unit processes the audio information received from the telephone in accordance with standard Internet transfer protocols and couples the processed audio information to the second output port when the telephonic communication is to be performed using the Internet communications network and the standard protocols.

  • Patent number: 6282272
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method and interface for browsing the internet using a telephone circuit having keys for generating DTMF codes. The interface includes a memory and a processor and is coupled to the telephone circuit and display. The interface receives a first DTMF code requesting access to the internet and, in response to the first DTMF code, loads a Web browser in its memory. The interface then receives a second DTMF code from the telephone circuit and converts the second DTMF code into a Web browser command using an interpretation protocol. The Web browser command is then executed using the interface, thereby enabling a user to access the internet via manual operation of the keys of the telephone is circuit.

  • Patent number: 6243129
    Abstract: A videoconferencing arrangement that selectively creates a composite arrangement of videoconferencing data along with video data from a supplemental video source. In one embodiment, a first analog-to-digital converter provides digital videoconferencing data from a camera source, and a second analog-to-digital converter is arranged to provide digital video data from a supplemental analog video signal source, such as a broadcast television signal. Digital video signals from a remote videoconferencing arrangement are decompressed and provided as input, along with the video data from the camera and supplemental video data, to a video processor. Responsive to selection signals, the video processor scales selected video data and overlays the scaled video data on selected other video data. For example, a live television broadcast can be overlaid with remote videoconferencing data.
