Patents by Inventor Luca Casone

Luca Casone has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10320474
    Abstract: A device includes an interface and Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Medium Access Control (MAC) circuitry coupled to the interface. The TDMA MAC circuitry detects a beacon in a frame having a defined frame duration and determines a frame compensation value based on a start time of the frame, a reference start time of the frame, and a number of elapsed frames. A current frame duration value is determined based on the frame compensation value and the defined frame duration.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: December 29, 2016
    Date of Patent: June 11, 2019
    Assignee: STMICROELECTRONICS S.R.L.

  • Patent number: 7978644
    Abstract: A method of fair scheduling for channel access in a wireless network comprising a plurality of nodes including a first node and at least one second node is described, the method comprising the steps of: arranging (RICP) a packet to be transmitted at the first node; calculating (COMP) a waiting time (ta) for the first node; the first node attempting (ATTX) the transmission of the packet on the channel at least after the calculated waiting time; characterised in that said calculation step includes an evaluation step of a first size representative of the ratio between a real use of the channel by the first node and a real use of the channel by a group of the plurality of nodes, during the transmission on the network of further packets preceding said packet.
