  • Patent number: 11409508
    Abstract: A computing device including a processor configured to receive source code including a plurality of source code modules. The processor may generate executable code from the source code and assign two or more reload indicators to two or more executable code modules. The processor may execute the executable code. During execution of the executable code, the processor may receive a source code update and generate an executable code update from the source code and the source code update. The processor may apply the executable code update to the executable code to generate updated executable code. The processor may generate a reload ordering of two or more reload operations corresponding to the reload indicators. As specified by the reload ordering, the processor may perform the two or more reload operations at the two or more respective executable code modules. The processor may execute the updated executable code.

    Abstract: Aspects of this disclosure relate to a time-division duplex (TDD) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system that includes a plurality of nodes. The plurality of nodes collectively includes antennas divided into groups. Reference signals can be transmitted from each group of antennas to one or more other groups of antennas during respective time slots. Channel estimates can be generated based on the received reference signals. The channel estimates can be jointly processed to generate calibration coefficients. Each calibration coefficient can represent a ratio associated with a transmit coefficient and a receive coefficient. Example algorithms for the joint processing are disclosed.
