  • Patent number: 10771132
    Abstract: Disclosed is a MIMO system including a transmitter and a receiver, in which an overall BER characteristic is improved. The transmitter (1) maps data, distributed among transmit antennas, onto an IQ plane to generate carrier symbols, and then, applies an inter-polarization interleave processing in a time direction to the carrier symbols between the transmit antennas, to generate OFDM signals. Receiving the OFDM signals, the receiver (2) demodulates the OFDM signals to generate complex baseband signals, and after that, applies a first deinterleave processing in a time direction to the complex baseband signals to generate time deinterleaved data. Further, the receiver (2) applies a MIMO separation processing to the time deinterleaved data to generate a plurality of sets of MIMO separated data and applies a second deinterleave processing between the receive antennas to the plurality of sets of MIMO separated data, so as to generate carrier symbols.

  • Patent number: 10352225
    Abstract: A method of diagnosing deterioration of an exhaust emission control catalyst is provided. The catalyst includes an HC (hydrocarbon) adsorbing part and an oxidation catalyst part. The method includes estimating that an HC discharge amount discharged from the HC adsorbing part is larger than a first value, detecting a parameter relating to a reaction heat of the exhaust emission control catalyst, and diagnosing that the exhaust emission control catalyst is deteriorated when the detected parameter indicates a temperature value lower than a predetermined threshold. The deterioration diagnosis is performed under a first condition that the HC discharge amount is estimated to be larger than the first value.
