  • Patent number: 10432227
    Abstract: Concepts and schemes pertaining to location of interleaver with low-density parity-check (LDPC) code are described. A processor of an apparatus encodes data to provide a stream of encoded data. The processor also rate matches the encoded data to provide a rate-matched stream of encoded data. The processor further interleaving the rate-matched stream of encoded data. In rate matching the encoded data, the processor buffers the stream of encoded data in a circular buffer, with the circular buffer functioning as a rate matching block that rate matches the stream of encoded data. In interleaving the rate-matched stream of encoded data, the processor performs bit-level interleaving on the rate-matched stream of encoded data to provide a stream of interleaved data.

  • Publication number: 20190252400
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a structure and method for embedding a non-volatile memory (NVM) in a HKMG (high-? metal gate) integrated circuit which includes a high-voltage (HV) HKMG transistor. NVM devices (e.g., flash memory) are operated at high voltages for its read and write operations and hence a HV device is necessary for integrated circuits involving non-volatile embedded memory and HKMG logic circuits. Forming a HV HKMG circuit along with the HKMG periphery circuit reduces the need for additional boundaries between the HV transistor and rest of the periphery circuit. This method further helps reduce divot issue and reduce cell size.

  • Patent number: 10381140
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for preparing a rare earth permanent magnet material. The preparation method of the present invention comprises atomizing spray process and infiltrating process, wherein the atomizing-sprayed sintered rare earth magnet is placed in a closed container before infiltrating. Through the atomizing spray process a solution containing a heavy rare earth element is coated on the surface of a sintered R1-Fe(Co)—B-A-X-M rare earth magnet, and after baking, heat treatment is performed to infiltrate the sprayed heavy rare earth element to the grain boundary phase of the sintered rare earth magnet. This method decreases the amount of a heavy rare earth element used, increases the coercive force of magnets with a little decrease of remanence, decreases the remanence temperature coefficient and coercive force temperature coefficient of the magnet, and improves resistance of the magnet against demagnetization at a high temperature.

  • Publication number: 20190222846
    Abstract: Sample Adaptive Offset (SAO) can be used for artifact reduction in video coding. Designing the categories in SAO based on sample statistics may improve the SAO efficiency. In one embodiment, the categories for BO or EO can be initially determined, for example, as specified in HEVC. For the categories that are determined to have non-zero offsets, the category with the highest number of samples may be divided into two sub-categories and an offset is encoded for each of the sub-categories. In addition, the category with the least number of samples may use a zero offset. In another embodiment, the initial categories can be homogenized to form new categories such that each new category has substantially the same number of samples. A histogram based on the number of samples or the number of gradient-based values can be used for adjusting the categories for BO or EO, respectively.

  • Patent number: 10355761
    Abstract: A method of beam administration in a cellular or wireless network is proposed. Cellular/wireless networks operating at Ka or higher frequency band require the use of directional antenna (or through array-based beamforming) to compensate for sever pathloss. Maintaining antenna pointing and tracking accuracy is essential in many phases of the communication process. By using uplink pilot signals for beam alignment/tracking, combined with switched beamforming at the UE and adaptive beamforming at the BS, an effective beam administration is achieved with reduced overhead, complexity, and cost.
