  • Patent number: 8121228
    Abstract: A detector (109) and corresponding method is configured for detecting presence of a data frame. The detector includes a first correlator (123) that is configured to provide a first plurality of correlations corresponding to similarity between data as received and first information, e.g., an ordered set of coefficients, that denotes the data frame and a second correlator (125) that is configured to provide a second plurality of correlations corresponding to similarity between the data as received and second information, e.g., another ordered set of coefficients, that denotes the data frame, where the second information includes a portion of the first information. Further included is decision logic (129) coupled to the first correlator and the second correlator, where the decision logic is configured to provide an indication (111) that the data frame is present based on the first plurality of correlations and the second plurality of correlations.

  • Patent number: 7675983
    Abstract: A baseband receiver and corresponding methods are arranged and configured to mitigate effects of direct current (DC) distortion and process an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) signal as provided from a direct conversion radio or receiver. The baseband receiver includes an OFDM demodulator configured to demodulate the OFDM signal, a post processor coupled to the OFDM demodulator and configured to provide symbols corresponding to the OFDM signal, and a compensator coupled to at least one of the OFDM demodulator and the post processor and configured to reduce error rates out of the baseband receiver that result from DC distortion in the direct conversion radio.

  • Patent number: 7593718
    Abstract: A WLAN communication system (10) and method employs mobile WLAN base stations (16) that include WLAN transceivers (26) and memory (30) for storing received messages from one or more mobile WLAN devices (12a-12n). The mobile WLAN base stations (16) serve as moving message carriers or message repeaters of messages for the mobile WLAN devices. In one embodiment, a mobile WLAN base station (16) receives messages transmitted by several mobile WLAN devices (12a-12n), temporarily stores the received messages, and delivers the stored messages to a fixed WLAN base station or another mobile WLAN base station when the mobile WLAN base station (16) moves to within communication range of the applicable fixed or other mobile WLAN base station.

  • Patent number: 7519042
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for mixed-media call formatting. A preferred format for a call can be determined from different mixed media communication formats. The mixed media communication formats can include a text format and an audible speech format. A media format mode signal can be sent or received. The media format mode signal can indicate a preferred format for a call. The call can be connected in the preferred format.

  • Patent number: 5530911
    Abstract: A system and method for minimizing current drain of a battery in a portable receiver, such as a selective call receiver (110), by monitoring the warm-up time of a component (130) of the receiver (116), such as an oscillator (134), to periodically determine changes in the warm-up time of the component (130). That component of the receiver is powered up prior to designated time slots (440) by a time period (Wt) according to the dynamic changes in receiver warm-up time.

  • Patent number: 5493715
    Abstract: A voltage controlled tunable resonant circuit (100) has at least two resonant frequency ranges and reduced self modulation, and includes a resonant element (120), a variable reactance element (130), and a first voltage variable capacitor (VVC) (150). The variable reactance element (130) is coupled to the resonant element (120). The VVC (150) has two fixed capacitance values corresponding to two fixed capacitance bias voltage ranges, and is coupled to the resonant element (120) and the variable reactance element (130). The first VVC (150) is controlled by a first DC bias voltage (190) selected to be within one of the two fixed capacitance bias voltage ranges to establish one of the two resonant frequency ranges over which the voltage controlled tunable resonant circuit (100) is tuned by variation of the variable reactance element (130).
