  • Patent number: 11221643
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and circuitries are provided to generate clock signals of different qualities in a device. A method includes determining whether the device is operating in a mid power mode or a high power mode. In response to determining that the device is operating in the mid power mode, oscillator circuitry is controlled to cause the oscillator circuitry to consume a lower amount of power, such that the oscillator circuitry generates a lower quality clock signal. In response to determining that the device is operating in the high power mode, the oscillator circuitry is controlled to cause the oscillator circuitry to consume a higher amount of power, such that the oscillator circuitry generates a higher quality clock signal. The lower amount of power and the higher amount of power are different from one another.

  • Publication number: 20210392600
    Abstract: Examples provide a method for clock calibration. A wireless communication device includes a first clock and a second clock. The first clock is turned off but the second clock runs during the inactive state of the wireless communication device. A frequency offset of the first clock is measured with respect to a reference frequency based on a signal received from a network. A virtual timer, which is a software-based timer is updated based on the frequency offset. A drift of the second clock is measured over a predetermined time interval based on the virtual timer. The virtual timer is restored based on the drift after wake-up from the inactive state. Alternatively, a clock frequency relation between the first clock and the second clock may be measured and a phase locked loop (PLL) may be controlled based on the measured clock frequency relation.

  • Publication number: 20210098122
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for the conversion of an MR measuring protocol, which predetermines parameters with associated parameter values. The parameter values configure a measurement by means of a software version of a first magnetic resonance system. The technique includes a syntactic conversion of the MR measuring protocol, in which the structure of the measuring protocol is adjusted to an older software version of a second magnetic resonance system. Furthermore, the technique includes a semantic conversion of the syntactically converted MR measuring protocol, by dependencies on parameter values of specific parameters of the syntactically converted MR measuring protocol being taken into account with respect to the older software version.
