  • Patent number: 10630512
    Abstract: A multiple access scheme is provided. A first communications terminal encodes a first data stream using a forward error correction (FEC) code, and scrambles the encoded first data stream based on a first scrambling signature. A second communications terminal encodes a second data stream using the FEC code, and scrambles the encoded second data stream based on a second scrambling signature. The first scrambling signature and the second scrambling signature are used, respectively, by the first terminal and the second terminal to distinguish the first encoded data stream from the second encoded data stream as respectively originating from the first terminal and the second terminal in a multiple access scheme, whereby the first encoded data stream and the second encoded data stream simultaneously share a wireless communications channel. The FEC code is a low density parity check (LDPC) code configured with a data node degree of two or three.

  • Publication number: 20190207628
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for performing Layered Belief LDPC decoding on received Standard Belief LDPC encoded data bursts. In on implementation, a receiver: demodulates a signal, the demodulated signal including a noise corrupted signal derived from a codeword encoded using standard belief LDPC encoding; converts the noise corrupted signal derived from the standard belief LDPC encoded codeword to a noise corrupted signal derived from a layered belief LDPC encoded codeword; and decodes the noise corrupted signal derived from the layered belief LDPC encoded codeword using a layered belief LDPC decoder. In further implementations, systems are described for reducing collisions in Layered Belief LDPC decoders that occur when multiple parity checks need the same soft decision at the same time. In these implementations, elements in an original LBD decoder table are rearranged to increase the distance between elements specifying the same location in a RAM where soft decisions are stored.

  • Patent number: 10168938
    Abstract: A method and apparatus allows single port memory devices to be accessed as pseudo two port memory devices. An access table is created to map the single port memory device to a single port even bank and a single port odd bank. The single port memory device is then accessed based on the mapping. An initial number of entries from the access table are retrieved in order to read addresses in the memory device until a predetermined delay expires. Simultaneous operations are then performed to read from rows in the memory device and write to rows in the memory device. Once all memory addresses have been read, write operations are sequentially performed in rows of the memory device based on the remaining entries of the access table.

  • Patent number: 10020965
    Abstract: An approach for increasing transmission throughput of a non-linear wireless channel, and efficient decoding of the transmitted signal via a simplified receiver, is provided. A signal reflects a source signal, and includes linear inter-symbol interference based on a faster-than-Nyquist signaling rate and a tight frequency roll-off, and non-linear interference based on high-power amplification for transmission over the wireless channel. The signal is received over a non-linear wireless channel, and is processed via a plurality of decoding iterations. A set of soft information of a current decoding iteration is generated based on a current estimate of the source signal and a final set of soft information from a previous decoding iteration. The current estimate of the source signal is based on an estimate of the linear ISI and the non-linear interference, which is based on the final set of soft information from the previous decoding iteration.

  • Patent number: 9941952
    Abstract: A satellite terminal and a machine-implemented method are provided for encoding a burst header of a burst for transmission on an inroute. One component of a group of satellite terminal components consisting of an ASIC, a FPGA, and a DSP, generates a burst header having five information bits encoded therein. The five information bits may be encoded using a Reed-Muller code, a (32, 5) block code or a convolutional code having a code rate of either 1/5 or 1/10. The five information bits may represent one or more of a modulation type for a payload of the burst, a code rate for encoding the payload, a code type, and a spreading factor for spreading the payload during transmission. A satellite gateway and a machine-implemented method are also provided for decoding a burst header of a burst received on an inroute as described above.

  • Patent number: 9894687
    Abstract: Methods and devices are provided. Devices asynchronously transmit, without diversity, bursts including information encoded using a low rate FEC code having a code rate no higher than ½. A terminal receives transmitted multiple overlapping bursts. The terminal detects and decodes bursts in a window of burst times, performs an iteration of an iterative interference cancellation process, and when at least one burst of at least a portion of the window remains incorrectly decoded, another iteration of the iterative cancellation process is performed as long as a maximum number of repeated iterations has not yet been performed. When all of the bursts in at least the portion of the window are correctly decoded, the window is advanced by an amount of burst time, at least the portion of the window is updated, and the iterations may be repeated. Correctly decoded bursts may be passed to a next process or device.
