  • Patent number: 11150717
    Abstract: A technique for dynamically adjusting power use of an input/output (I/O) interface of an electronic device is provided. The electronic device includes an input/output (I/O) interface that facilitates electronic communications with a receiving electronic device, at a particular transmission rate that is dynamically changeable by the electronic device. Transmission power and transmission rate adjustment circuitry determines whether a step-down in a transmission power used for signal transmission at the particular transmission rate is desirable. When desirable, the transmission power is dynamically adjusted down one step, such that less power is used by the I/O interface during the electronic communications.

  • Publication number: 20200403665
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices for grouping client devices based on sensor data in an assisted wireless communication system are provided. Sensor data may include device mobility, device type, and device application data usage, among other characteristics. An assisted wireless communication system may include client devices sending data to an access point. The clients may send conventional protocol data over a channel and, concurrently, send sensor data over an alternative channel. In some cases, client devices may exchange their protocol data, modify their own protocol data based on the exchanged data, and send the modified protocol data to the access point. This may allow the clients to adjust their grouping.

  • Publication number: 20200104038
    Abstract: In some embodiments, an electronic device performs an action in response to detection of a sequence of one or more motion gestures. Motion gesture information of a first electronic device optionally includes a first portion representing a respective attitude of the first electronic device relative to a frame of reference and a second portion that includes movement of the first electronic device from the respective attitude of the first electronic device. In accordance with a determination that the movement of the first electronic device during the second portion of the motion gesture meets movement criteria for a movement gesture that corresponds to the respective attitude of the first electronic device, a process is initiated to control the first electronic device or a second electronic device in accordance with the second portion of the motion gesture.

  • Patent number: 10117084
    Abstract: Resource allocation logic in a user device can determine allocation of a shared resource among different communication modules supporting a number of different communication types (e.g., GNSS, cellular, Wi-Fi, and/or Bluetooth communications) in a context-dependent manner. For example, the logic can determine an operating context of the user device. Based on the operating context, the logic can assign a priority to each of the signal types. The shared resource can be allocated among the signal types based on the priority.
