  • Patent number: 10305518
    Abstract: A Cartesian loop circuit includes a reference signal amplifier, a forward path coupled to the reference signal amplifier, a feedback path coupled to the forward path, and a controller. The forward path includes an up-mixer to up mix a forward path signal to a radio frequency signal. The feedback path includes a down-mixer to down mix a feedback signal to a frequency of a baseband reference signal inputted to the forward path. The feedback path provides the down-mixed feedback signal to the forward path. The controller is to perform power control at a low power by controlling a gain of the reference signal amplifier and is to perform power control at a high power by controlling a gain of the down-mixer. At the high power, the controller may perform power control by further controlling the gain of the up-mixer.

  • Patent number: 9337877
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is provided for mitigating multiband self-interference using multipath cancellation. A dual-band transceiver receives an incoming radio-frequency signal that includes a multipath self-interference component generated by the transmission of an outgoing radio-frequency signal. The transceiver creates a plurality of reference signals from the outgoing radio-frequency signal by introducing delay values with respect to the outgoing signal. The transceiver adjusts the amplitude and phase of each of the delayed reference signals and combines the resulting signals with the incoming radio-frequency signal to cancel the self-interference component. The delay values may be determined adaptively. The systems and methods described herein are particularly useful for dual-band transceivers capable of communicating simultaneously using Long-Term Evolution (LTE) wideband signals and Public-Safety Narrowband (PSNB) signals.

  • Patent number: 9136588
    Abstract: A short, efficient antenna utilizing a floating coax transmission line over ground or overlapping wire feed structure for reduced antenna size for use in handheld radios. An asymmetric transmission line radiator having a length (LTL) is oriented substantially planar to and proximal to a truncated ground plane, and having at one end an input/output connector, and at an other end a feed point at least one of above a ground plane and proximal to its edge. An exciter antenna in a form of a plate or bent wire is coupled to the feed point and is exterior to the edge of the ground plane and oriented substantially orthogonal to the ground plane, the exciter antenna having a larger dimension length (LEA) that is at least 50% smaller than the length LTL. The overall length of a perimeter of the antenna is approximately ½ a wavelength of a center frequency of the antenna.

  • Patent number: 8995512
    Abstract: Receivers (500) and methods of adaptively adjusting the receivers based on a received interferer are described. The peak-to-average ratio of a received signal is used to determine the type of interferer. The ratio and interferer type, in addition to the type of on-channel signal, are used to select parameters to adjust the decay time of a peak detector (516), and the threshold and hysteresis of a comparator (518). The peak detector (516) and comparator (518) are used to generate an off-channel flag that indicates the presence of a relatively strong interferer to other modules in the receiver (500). If valid data is not present a default set of parameters is provided. The ratio is determined by dividing the maximum peak over the average or a range of ratios is determined by comparing a scaled value of the average to different scaled values of the peak.

  • Publication number: 20130315344
    Abstract: A linear RF transmitter (100) includes a forward path including a baseband signal combiner (109) and an RF (radio frequency) power amplifier (123), and a linearizing control loop from an output (127) of the RF power amplifier to an input of the combiner (109). A feedback control path (105, 107) of the loop delivers a baseband error control signal to the combiner. The transmitter further includes a test signal generator (102) to apply to the combiner in a closed loop level training mode a test signal comprising a voltage Vin which increases with time in a non-linear manner approaching an asymptotic limit such that in response an output signal produced by the combiner is a voltage Ve which is substantially constant over a period of time.

  • Patent number: 8478211
    Abstract: An integrated circuit includes a linearizer circuit in which excessive delay is compensated. The linearizer circuit includes a power amplifier, forward and feedback paths, and a microprocessor. A signal from the power amplifier is routed by the forward path to be transmitted while a portion of the signal to be transmitted is routed back to the power amplifier via the feedback path. The microprocessor applies phase training signals to the forward path. The microprocessor uses the phase training signals to determine the amount of delay in the linearizer circuit and alters the frequency position of poles and zeros in the linearizer circuit to compensate for the delay. The gain of the linearizer circuit is also altered by the microprocessor depending on the measured delay.
