  • Publication number: 20190288893
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for improving channel estimation within an OFDM communication system. Channel estimation in OFDM is usually performed with the aid of pilot symbols. The pilot symbols are typically spaced in time and frequency. The set of frequencies and times at which pilot symbols are inserted is referred to as a pilot pattern. In some cases, the pilot pattern is a diagonal-shaped lattice, either regular or irregular. The method first interpolates in the direction of larger coherence (time or frequency). Using these measurements, the density of pilot symbols in the direction of faster change will be increased thereby improving channel estimation without increasing overhead. As such, the results of the first interpolating step can then be used to assist the interpolation in the dimension of smaller coherence (time or frequency).

  • Patent number: 10418728
    Abstract: A connector having a contact made of metal, and comprises a pair of elastic arms adapted to clamp a conductor of a wire, so as to electrically contact the conductor. A first release structure is on one of the pair of elastic arms and a second release structure, facing the first release structure, is on the other of the pair of elastic arms. A wedge channel is defined between the first release structure and the second release structure when the conductor is clamped between the pair of elastic arms and the wedge channel gradually widens toward free ends of the pair of elastic arms. The pair of elastic arms are adapted to be expanded away from each other by inserting an external tool into the wedge channel, so as to release the clamped conductor, improving the use convenience of the connector.
