  • Patent number: 10108486
    Abstract: A state indicating value is encoded with a one-hot or one-cold encoding and each bit of the state indicating value is stored in a different portion of a storage element. Parity values are determined for each portion of the storage element and stored to a parity storage element. This allows errors caused by single event upsets or multi-bit upsets to be detected and corrected, with lower hardware cost compared to alternative approaches.

  • Patent number: 9918275
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses a method and system for waking a sleeping trunking terminal. A trunking terminal determines whether to enter a sleeping mode in a standby status, calculates a waking monitoring time point of the group according to the group sleeping parameter of the group, enters the sleeping mode at a sleeping start time point of the trunking terminal, wakes up and monitors whether a group paging message is received at the waking monitoring time point of the group, wakes up, joins the group and monitors a group downlink sharing channel when the group paging message is received, and continues sleeping when the group paging message is not received. In a network side, a trunking switching center transmits a group establishment message to a base station. The base station calculates the waking monitoring time point, and transmits the group paging message at the waking monitoring time point.

  • Patent number: 6658247
    Abstract: A data reception terminal apparatus and a data receiving method suitable for a music delivering system using a portable telephone terminal apparatus. When data is downloaded with a portable telephone terminal apparatus, received data is divided as blocks. Each block is received with a data reception channel. Whenever each block is received, a received call is detected with a received call detecting channel. Thus, while data is being downloaded, a received call can be detected. When the downloading operation of data is suspended, information that represents the next data position of data that has been downloaded is stored. When the downloading operation is resumed, the data is downloaded from the next data position of the data that has been downloaded and stored. Thus, the data downloading operation is resumed from the next data position of the data that has been downloaded. Consequently, the download time becomes short.

    Abstract: A scheme for providing mobility management for terminals with multiple subscriptions. The invention integrates Europe's Universal Mobile Telecommunications Standard (UMTS) subscriber identity module—specific procedures into single procedures, and which uses a common TMSI. An UMTS subscriber identity module is allocated for each subscription associated with a mobile terminal, wherein each UMTS subscriber identity module being identified by a identification code. A location area update is performed by providing a single location area update request message comprising a list of identification codes for each UMTS subscriber identity module associated with the mobile terminal. Each USIM is authenticated separately, and some USIMs may fail, while others may succeed authentication. The terminal and network each build their own Ordered List of Registered USIM-IDs (OLRU) which records the USIMs that succeeded. The network assigns a Base TMSI, which is similar to the current assignment of TMSIs.
