  • Publication number: 20200192843
    Abstract: A method for integrating a further bus subscriber into a bus system, and a bus system, having a master module and subscribers disposed in series, includes the temporally consecutive method steps: in a first method step, the further bus subscriber transmits a data packet to the master module in order to log in to the master module, in a second method step, a bus subscriber disposed between the further bus subscriber and the master module stops the data packet and checks whether the bus system has already received a release, in a third method step, the first bus subscriber forwards the data packet to the master module if the bus system has not yet received a release, or in a third, in particular an alternative, method step, if the bus system has already received a release, the bus subscriber stores the data packet and waits until the release of the bus system is revoked and after the release has been revoked, forwards the stored data packet to the master module.

  • Patent number: 10541835
    Abstract: In a method for initializing a bus system, and a bus system having a master module and serially disposed bus subscribers, the master module asks the bus subscribers to log into the master module. After logging into the master module, each bus subscriber waits a predefined period of time to see whether a further bus subscriber logs into the master module, and closes the bus system if no further bus subscriber logs into the master module within the predefined period of time.

  • Publication number: 20190198031
    Abstract: An audio decoder provides a decoded audio information on the basis of an encoded audio information including linear prediction coefficients (LPC) and includes a tilt adjuster to adjust a tilt of a noise using linear prediction coefficients of a current frame to acquire a tilt information and a noise inserter configured to add the noise to the current frame in dependence on the tilt information. Another audio decoder includes a noise level estimator to estimate a noise level for a current frame using a linear prediction coefficient of at least one previous frame to acquire a noise level information; and a noise inserter to add a noise to the current frame in dependence on the noise level information provided by the noise level estimator. Thus, side information about a background noise in the bit-stream may be omitted. Methods and computer programs serve a similar purpose.

  • Publication number: 20190149356
    Abstract: A method for initializing a bus system, and a bus system having a master module and serially disposed bus subscribers, includes the temporally successive method steps: in a first method step, the master module asks the bus subscribers to log in to the master module, in a second method step, a first bus subscriber disposed downstream from the master module logs in to the master module, in a third method step, the first bus subscriber waits for a predefined period of time to see whether a second bus subscriber disposed downstream from the first bus subscriber logs in to the master module, and in a fourth method step, the first bus subscriber closes the bus system if no second bus subscriber logs in to the master module within the predefined period of time, or in a fourth method step, in particular an alternative method step, a second bus subscriber logs in to the master module within the predefined period of time and waits for a further predefined period of time to see whether a third bus subscriber downstream

  • Publication number: 20190146940
    Abstract: In a method for the emergency shutdown of a bus system, and a bus system, having a master module and bus subscribers disposed in series, the master module and the bus subscribers sending data packets to one another with the aid of a data line, the method has the temporally consecutive method steps: in a first method step, a bus subscriber and/or the master module detect(s) an error status, in a second method step, the bus subscriber and/or the master module send(s) an emergency signal to all bus subscribers and to the master module, in a third method step, a further bus subscriber receives the emergency signal, immediately forwards it to an adjacent bus subscriber and simultaneously evaluates it, and in a fourth method step, the further bus subscriber shuts itself down automatically.
