    Abstract: A wideband simultaneous transmit and receive (STAR) subsystem for a radar or communications system including self-interference cancellation and external noise cancellation. The STAR subsystem includes a canceller circuit which digitally prepares a cancellation signal to cancel out leaked or reflected portions of the transmit signal and correlated noise in the receiver signal. The self-interference cancellation can be adaptively configured in a closed-loop mode, and operated open loop in real time to minimize bandwidth limitations and achieve wideband performance. The STAR subsystem also includes an external noise active canceller which greatly diminishes high-power external noise in the receiver signal. The external noise canceller digitally synthesizes a cancellation signal which dramatically improves the signal-to-noise ratio in the receiver.

    Abstract: According to an embodiment, a communication apparatus includes a switching unit, a reception unit, a rising edge detector, a symbol detector, and a switching timing detector. The switching unit switches a transmission operation of a signal in the communication apparatus between uplink signal transmission and downlink signal transmission. The reception unit receives a signal transmitted in a time division multiplexing scheme. The rising edge detector detects a rising edge of a received signal received by the reception unit. The symbol detector detects a symbol of a signal indicating a guard time in the time division multiplexing scheme from the received signal. The switching timing detector detects a switching timing of the transmission operation from the switching unit on the basis of detection results of the rising edge detector and the symbol detector.

  • Patent number: 10608725
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a wireless communication system and, specifically, provides a method for reporting a channel state and an apparatus therefor. A terminal of the present invention receives, from a base station, configuration information for a plurality of sets, each including at least one of a plurality of channel state information-reference signal (CSI-RS) resources configured for a channel state information (CSI) process. The terminal reports CSI measured on the basis of only at least one CSI-RS resource included in a first set which is one of the plurality of sets. Here, the first set may include only some CSI-RS resources of the plurality of CSI-RS resources configured for the CSI process.

  • Patent number: 10602532
    Abstract: Methods and systems for wireless packet switching include determining a schedule for a plurality of transceivers in an enclosure. The schedule specifies which of the plurality of transceivers will act as a transmitter and which will act as a receiver. Data is transmitted from each transmitter to a corresponding receiver with a configured beamforming direction. Data is transmitted from a transmitter to a corresponding receiver by a wired connection if an angle of the beamforming direction is lower than a minimum angle.

  • Patent number: 10575284
    Abstract: In wireless communications, an access point may send a first frame to multiple stations. In one aspect, the first frame may include resource allocation information for uplink multi-user transmission. In response to the first frame, one or more stations may measure the channel characteristics associated with the first frame and send a second frame(s) for uplink multi-user transmission, where the second frame(s) includes resource preference information associated with the respective station(s). The access point may then generate and transmit a third frame based on the resource preference information. In another aspect, in response to the first frame, one or more stations may send a second frame(s) spanning the channel bandwidth supported by the respective station(s). The access point may measure the channel characteristics associated with the second frame and generate and transmit a third frame based on the measured channel characteristics.

  • Patent number: 10574276
    Abstract: A method for wireless communication by a wireless communication device is described. The wireless communication device determines that an aggressor radio in the wireless communication device is causing (or can potentially cause) self-jamming to a victim radio in the wireless communication device. A precoding configuration is selected based on one or more link throughput metrics and one or more self-jamming metrics. The precoding configuration is applied to transmissions of the aggressor radio.

  • Patent number: 10567026
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a signal transduction system includes an arrangement of interacting unit cells. Each unit cell can have one or more adjustable parameters that are adjustable to enable one or more adjustable impedance values of the unit cells at each of one or more operational frequencies. The interactions of the unit cells within the arrangement of the interacting unit cells can be describable with an interaction matrix that is approximately independent of the adjustable impedance values of the unit cells.

  • Patent number: 10523633
    Abstract: A method communicates between secured computer systems in a computer network infrastructure. Data packets are transmitted between a plurality from a group of processing computer systems, wherein such a transmission is performed by at least one broker computer system. The data packets are advantageously routed via at least one relay system connected upstream or downstream of the broker computer system in a transmission path of the data packets. All from the group of processing computer systems keep predetermined network ports at least temporarily closed so that access to a respective processing computer system via a network by the network ports is prevented. The relay system keeps predetermined network ports closed at least to the broker computer system, which has the relay system connected downstream so that access to the relay system via a network by the network ports is prevented.
