  • Patent number: 11159188
    Abstract: Examples described herein include methods, devices, and systems which may compensate input data for non-linear power amplifier noise to generate compensated input data. In compensating the noise, during an uplink transmission time interval (TTI), a switch path is activated to provide amplified input data to a receiver stage including a coefficient calculator. The coefficient calculator may calculate an error representative of the noise based partly on the input signal to be transmitted and a feedback signal to generate coefficient data associated with the power amplifier noise. The feedback signal is provided, after processing through the receiver, to a coefficient calculator. During an uplink TTI, the amplified input data may also be transmitted as the RF wireless transmission via an RF antenna. During a downlink TTI, the switch path may be deactivated and the receiver stage may receive an additional RF wireless transmission to be processed in the receiver stage.

  • Patent number: 11115894
    Abstract: In aspects of managing FTM frames of WLAN RTT bursts, a device can receive a WLAN RTT burst, such as initiated by a device application, device firmware, or received as a RTT ranging request. The device implements a status module that interposes the routing of the ranging request in the device, and determines a device state of the device with a device state monitor of the status module. The status module is implemented to drop the ranging request if the device is an idle device state such that the ranging request is extraneous. Alternatively, the status module is implemented to reduce a number of FTM frames in the ranging request based on the device state indicating that multiple FTM frames of the ranging request are extraneous, and then route to perform the ranging request of the WLAN RTT burst with the reduced number of FTM frames in the ranging request.

  • Patent number: 10080187
    Abstract: A wireless communication apparatus according to an embodiment includes a transceiver and a transmission slot determiner. The transceiver transmits/receives information. The transmission slot determiner determines a transmission slot in which the transceiver transmits information, from a frame time-divided into a plurality of slots, based on the rank value of self node corresponding to the number of hops to a root node. A plurality of slot groups including a plurality of continuous slots is set in the frame. The slot groups are assigned different rank values. The transmission slot determiner selects a slot group to which the rank value of self node is assigned, and determines a transmission slot from among the slots included in the selected slot group.

  • Patent number: 10057019
    Abstract: In an aspect of the disclosure, a method, a computer program product, and an apparatus are provided. The method may be performed by a subordinate entity. The subordinate entity receives a transmission from the scheduling entity in a data portion of the subframe. The subordinate entity processes, in the subframe, at least a part of the transmission. The subordinate entity then determines whether to send an acknowledgment (ACK) signal for the transmission, the ACK signal to be transmitted in an ACK portion of the subframe before a remaining part of the transmission is processed, and sends the ACK signal to the scheduling entity in the ACK portion of the subframe based on the determination. The data portion and the ACK portion are contained in the subframe.

  • Patent number: 9985428
    Abstract: Sampling implementation method and device based on conventional sampling GOOSE trip mode. CPU of master NPI plug-in, after receiving a second pulse, transmits sampling pulse generation time and a transmission enable bit to FPGA of the master NPI plug-in at a fixed interval; after detecting the transmission enable bit, the FPGA of the master NPI plug-in judges whether time of its internal timer is greater than/equal to the sampling pulse generation time, if yes, generates a sampling pulse to FPGA of collection plug-in; after receiving sampling pulse, the collection plug-in carries out A/D sampling, and transmits sampled data to the master NPI plug-in; when detecting that all A/D samplings are completed, the master NPI plug-in transmits data packets to protection CPU plug-in. The device includes an MMI plug-in, a protection CPU plug-in, a master NPI plug-in and a collection plug-in. Protection maloperation is thereby reduced.

  • Patent number: 9841940
    Abstract: Power reduction through clock management techniques are disclosed. In one aspect, the clock management is applied to a clock signal on a SOUNDWIRE™ communication bus. In particular, a control system associated with a master device on the communication bus may evaluate frequency requirements of audio streams on the communication bus and select a lowest possible clock frequency that meets the frequency requirements. Lower clock frequencies result in fewer clock transitions and result in a net power saving relative to higher clock frequencies. In the event of a clock frequency change, the master device communicates the clock frequency that will be used prospectively to slave devices on the communication bus, and all devices transition to the new frequency at the same frame boundary. In addition to the power savings, exemplary aspects of the present disclosure do not impact an active audio stream.
