  • Patent number: 8374302
    Abstract: A method of data signal processing is provided, wherein the method comprises filtering a pre-filtered quadrature data signal by using an m×n filtering matrix, wherein m?n. In particular, the filtering may be performed by using a rectangular matrix, i.e. a non-quadratic matrix. That is, the filtering may be performed by a matrix multiply in an image cancellation filtering unit. In general m relates to the 5 number of rows of the matrix while n relates to the number of columns of the matrix. In particular, the processing may form or may be a part of an image cancellation process.

    Abstract: A controller is configured to determine a word in a set of words corresponding to a received coding value, the set of words including at least one data word, at least one modulator command word and at least one gain command word. When the received coding value corresponds to a data word, the controller causes the data word to be modulated. When the received coding value corresponds to a modulator command word, the controller controls a modulator based on the modulator command word. When the received coding value corresponds to a gain command word, the controller controls a gain based on the gain command word.

  • Publication number: 20110118491
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for the production of no-carrier added 99Mo by neutron activation of 98Mo thereby reaching specific radioactivity which allow the use of such produced 99Mo as an option for the 99Mo produced by the fission of 235U. This has been achieved by taking advantage of the recoil of the 99Mo nuclei upon the capture of neutrons by the 98Mo containing compound. These recoiled nuclei are no longer chemically bound to the 98Mo containing compound allowing further specific separation. Preferred 98Mo containing compounds are molybdenum(O)hexacarbonyl [(Mo(CO)6] and molybdenum (VI) di oxodioxinate [C4H3(O) —NC5H3) J2-MoO2.

  • Patent number: 7680210
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a digital I/Q modulator which efficiently supports multi-time-slot operation of wireless TDMA transmitters employing linear power amplifiers. According to the present invention, dips are introduced in the envelope of the I/Q signal in the guard interval between adjacent time-slots or bursts. The dips avoid interference on adjacent radio frequency channels when the gain of the TX chain in switched abruptly in order to change the power level of the TX signal or when the modulation scheme is changed. Also, a method is provided for generating the dips, which is particularly attractive if the modulation scheme in adjacent time-slots changes from GMSK to 8PSK or vice versa.

  • Publication number: 20090144461
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for re-configuration of a hardware peripheral, and a system that includes the hardware peripheral. Processing of large amounts of data in a multifunctional environment in a processor system is enabled in a flexible way by employing a re-configurable and autonomous operating hardware peripheral, which receives and, if necessary, sends data independently of a processor by use of DMA channels. Furthermore, the re-configuration method enables flexible assembling and storing of at least one set of configuration parameters used for the re-configuration of the hardware peripheral. The present disclosure provides the advantage of a flexible and fast way of handling large amounts of temporary data independently of a processor.

  • Publication number: 20060155491
    Abstract: Simple conventional frequency measurement circuits comprise two counters as essential elements. In such counters a problem may occur that the count value has a relative error of ±1/N, corresponding to the measurement interval. According to the present invention, pairs of intermediate count values of the counters are used to estimate the frequency ratio. According to an aspect of the present invention, this may be made on the basis of the steepness of a regression line determined on the basis of the pairs of intermediate count values of the counters. Furthermore, according to an aspect of the present invention, both counters continue counting while the intermediate sample values are sampled.
