  • Patent number: 11153133
    Abstract: An integrated circuit equalizes a data signal expressed as a series of symbols. The symbols form data patterns with different frequency components. By considering these patterns, the integrated circuit can experiment with equalization settings specific to a subset of the frequency components, thereby finding an equalization control setting that optimizes equalization. Optimization can be accomplished by setting the equalizer to maximize symbol amplitude.

  • Patent number: 11152978
    Abstract: A communication device includes a processing circuit, the processing circuit being configured as: mapping a first information bit part used for a receiving end to a corresponding channel based on a pre-set mapping rule so as to execute spatial modulation with respect to the first information bit part of the receiving end; allocating a transmission power to the receiving end; and controlling the transmission power allocated through a mapped channel to transmit a second information bit part used for the receiving end. In the case of the first information bit parts used for multiple receiving ends being the same, the channels mapped for multiple receiving ends are the same. The multi-user spatial modulation performs spatial modulation for multiple receiving ends at the same time through a multiplexing channel of the transmitting end, improving the additional modulation order and the data transmission rate which can be obtained by each receiving end.

A time of collection of the base station and mobile device GPS data coincides. The GPS data includes code phase and pseudo-range data from each of the GPS satellites, and may include carrier phase data. A predetermined GPS position correction technique is used to generate a corrected geoposition of the mobile device using the GPS data.

    Abstract: A multi-tap Differential Feedforward Equalizer (DFFE) configuration with both precursor and postcursor taps is provided. The DFFE has reduced noise and/or crosstalk characteristics when compared to a Feedforward Equalizer (FFE) since DFFE uses decision outputs of slicers as inputs to a finite impulse response (FIR) unlike FFE which uses actual analog signal inputs. The digital outputs of the tentative decision slicers are multiplied with tap coefficients to reduce noise. Further, since digital outputs are used as the multiplier inputs, the multipliers effectively work as adders which are less complex to implement. The decisions at the outputs of the tentative decision slicers are tentative and are used in a FIR filter to equalize the signal; the equalized signal may be provided as input to the next stage slicers. The bit-error-rate (BER) of the final stage decisions are lower or better than the BER of the previous stage tentative decisions.

  • Patent number: 10812118
    Abstract: In-band full-duplex (IBFD) wireless systems offer the ability to revolutionize frequency spectrum utilization for future networks. For IBFD systems to work, the self-interference (SI) generated by each wireless node should be sufficiently mitigated, which becomes more challenging as the bandwidth increases. RF cancellation enables this interference reduction but has been limited so far to narrowband operation or restricted to distinctive environments. Fortunately, a photonic-enabled RF canceller can provide broadband interference cancellation using photonic components in a wideband vector modulator architecture with tunable time-delay taps. An example of this canceller with 20 canceller taps provides 25 and 20 dB of cancellation over 500-MHz and 1-GHz instantaneous bandwidths, respectively, and is tunable between 0.5 and 5.5 GHz. This photonic-enabled RF canceller provides the wideband operation and high tap counts for successfully deploying future wireless systems with IBFD technology.

  • Patent number: 10797852
    Abstract: A method of frame synchronization comprises receiving a stream of bits, the stream comprising a sequence of frames, wherein each frame comprises a frame counter value representing the number of the frame in the sequence, and frame check bits for checking the validity of the frame counter value. The method comprises decoding a first section of bits, and trailing a first portion of the first section of bits as a trial counter value, and a second portion of the first section of bits as trial check bits. The method comprises checking if the trial counter value corresponds to a valid frame counter value using the trial check bits, and synchronizing based on whether the trial counter value is determined to correspond to a valid frame counter value.

  • Patent number: 10720947
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A device, which may be otherwise known as user equipment (UE), may support spurious emission attenuation. A device may determine, based on a first frequency scan on a radio frequency (RF) spectrum band, that a signal strength of a signal at a frequency of the RF spectrum band satisfies a threshold. The device may perform, based on the first frequency scan on the RF spectrum band, a second frequency scan on the RF spectrum band to determine whether the signal strength of the signal at the frequency of the RF spectrum band satisfies the threshold during the second frequency scan. Subsequently, the device may determine that the signal is a spurious emission at the frequency based on the signal strength of the signal, and configure a notch filter for mitigating the spurious emission at the frequency.

  • Patent number: 10708796
    Abstract: A base station may determine a Doppler metric associated with a wireless channel and a user equipment (UE). The Doppler metric may be determined from received information related to Doppler effects measured by the UE or from directly measured Doppler effects associated with uplink data received from the UE. Based on the determined Doppler metric, the base station may select one or both of a reference signal (RS) density and a channel estimation technique for the wireless channel and associated UE. The base station may transmit an indication of the RS density to the UE. Downlink data bursts and uplink data bursts may include RSs and data according to the indicated RS density. Further, the base station may transmit to the UE, an indication to communicate using the selected wireless channel estimation technique.

  • Patent number: 10691836
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for a charge withholding converter reshuffling technique that decorrelates input power of a multi-phase switched capacitor (SC) voltage converter relative to the output power provided to a load. The load may be a cryptographic device. The technique provides a countermeasure against power analysis attacks. A controller including a first random number generator coupled to the stages of the SC voltage converter controls gating for charging a first subset of the stages. A controller including a second random number generator coupled the stages of the SC voltage converter controls gating for discharging a second subset the stages. A number of the switched capacitor stages maintain their charge beyond the switch period in which they are charged. The SC voltage converter withholds a random portion of input charge and delivers this charge to the load after a random time period.
