  • Publication number: 20200107208
    Abstract: Wireless local area network (WLAN) field coverage is analyzed in a venue. A mobile data capture device measures coverage data indicative of the WLAN field coverage from a plurality of locations in the venue, and also captures image data indicative of images of the locations in the venue. A controller correlates the measured coverage data and the captured image data at each location. An interface displays the captured image data correlated with the measured coverage data at each location. Impact score value data indicative of the WLAN field coverage may also be determined, correlated, and displayed for each location.

  • Patent number: 5305443
    Abstract: A microprocessor provides a bus state referred to as "loop-back". This state holds the data bus at valid logic levels, without use of resistors, after a read transaction has been completed and there are no pending bus transactions. When this state is entered, the data just read from the data bus is driven back onto the data bus, and the device which had provided the data is placed in the tri-state (high-impedance) condition. This loop-back feature, combined with the fact that all other outputs are held at their previous values, provides for near-zero power dissipation on the bus. The inventive technique avoids the use of pull-up resistors, which are provided on prior art tri-state busses to ensure that the busses do not float and enter the threshold region where high power dissipation occurs.
