  • Patent number: 10420140
    Abstract: Multicast transmissions are efficient but do not allow for individual acknowledgement that the data was received by each receiver. This is not acceptable for isochronous systems that require specific levels of QoS for each device. A multimedia communications protocol is provided that uses a novel multi-destination burst transmission protocol in multimedia isochronous systems. The transmitter establishes a bi-directional burst mode for multicasting data to multiple devices and receiving Reverse Start of Frame (RSOF) delimiters from each multicast-destination receiver in response to multiple SOF delimiters, thus providing protocol-efficient multi-destination acknowledgements.

  • Patent number: 10352980
    Abstract: An embodiment method of detecting an arc fault includes communicating a power line signal, including a communication signal modulated on an alternating current power signal, over a power line. The communication signal is communicated according to a power line network protocol. A power spectrum of the communication signal includes a first frequency band and a second frequency band different from the first frequency band. In accordance with the power line network protocol, a power of the communication signal in the first frequency band is attenuated in comparison to the power of the communication signal in the second frequency band. The method further includes performing arc fault detection on the spectral portions of the power line signal that are within the first frequency band.

  • Patent number: 10284380
    Abstract: An embodiment is an integrated System on Chip (SoC) including a communication interface configured to implement a communication protocol including functional blocks that are energized or de-energized individually so that a minimum power consumption is used to receive and detect a signal, and a receiver identification (ID) detection function configured to determine whether the signal is intended for the device in which the SoC resides. The SoC further includes a power management function configured to control which functions in the SoC and/or device in which the SoC resides are energized or de-energized depending on the results of the receiver ID detection function, and a power source capable of energizing a minimum number of the functional blocks required to receive and detect a signal, wherein the power source can be used in a low power state and switched over to a main power supply when the SoC is energized.

  • Publication number: 20190028853
    Abstract: Multicast transmissions do not allow for individual receivers to acknowledge that data was received by each receiver in the network. This is not acceptable for isochronous systems that require specific levels of QoS for each device. A multimedia communications protocol supports using multicast transmissions (one-to-many) in multimedia isochronous systems. A transmitter establishes a Multi-ACKed Multicast protocol within which a group of receiving devices can acknowledge the multicast transmission during a multi-acknowledgment period.

  • Patent number: 10181873
    Abstract: A powerline communication system includes a plurality of rail segments. Each of the rail segments is electrically isolated from other rail segments, and each receives power from a rail segment power supply. At least one cart operates on the rail segments. The cart has a powerline communications controller. Each rail segment has a current state defined by how many and which carts are operating on the rail segment. A central coordinator is coupled to each rail segment and configured to execute a channel estimation using a sounding protocol on its rail segment. The central coordinators store tone maps associated with the possible states of its rail segment, and possibly its adjacent rail segment. A main controller communicates with each central coordinator to direct the state and future state of its segment so that tone maps and network keys can be managed by the CCo in advance of an imminent state change.
