  • Patent number: 10425171
    Abstract: A method for adjusting transmitter output power (PTX) comprises sensing, by a proximity sensor communicatively coupled to a transmitting device, whether an object is proximate to the transmitting device. The method further comprises analyzing an image from a camera to determine whether the transmitting device is proximate to a portion of a human body, when the proximity sensor senses the object proximate to the transmitting device. Further, the method comprises adjusting the PTX of an antenna operatively coupled to the transmitting device to be less than or equal to a SAR threshold output power (PSARMAX), when it is determined that the transmitting device is proximate to the portion of the human body or when it cannot be determined whether the transmitting device is proximate to a portion of a human body.

  • Patent number: 10410504
    Abstract: A home security system includes interactive sensors and a controller in a controlled environment, such as a smart home environment. A central communication device is coupled, wired or wirelessly, directly or indirectly, to the interactive sensors and the controller. The interactive sensors include at least one heartbeat sensor to detect the presence of one or more human bodies and at least one emergency condition sensor to detect the presence of an emergency condition. In some implementations, the controller may determine the number of occupants based on the heartbeats of multiple human bodies detected by the heartbeat sensor. In some implementations, the number of occupants may be determined by the heartbeats detected by the heartbeat sensor in conjunction with one or more other types of sensors, such as a body heat sensor.

  • Patent number: 10382147
    Abstract: Methods of calibrating a power amplifier system to compensate for envelope amplitude misalignment are provided. In certain configurations, a method of calibrating a power amplifier system includes amplifying a radio frequency signal from a transceiver using a power amplifier and generating a supply voltage of the power amplifier using an envelope tracker, including generating a scaled envelope signal based on a power control level signal and an envelope signal, and shaping the scaled envelope signal using a shaping table generated at a target gain compression. The method further includes changing a scaling of the scaled envelope signal using a calibration module, monitoring an output of the power amplifier to determine an amount of scaling of the scaled envelope signal at which a detected gain compression of the power amplifier corresponds to the target gain compression of the shaping table, and calibrating the power amplifier system based on the determination.

  • Patent number: 10367540
    Abstract: An example system and method operate a wireless device in a first mode with power to operate a communication resource of the wireless device turned off. While operating the wireless device in the first mode, the system and method detects a voice attribute in a first portion of audio data, the audio data based on microphone input. Responsive to the detection of the voice attribute, the system and method transitions to the wireless device to operate in a second mode with power to operate the communication resource turned on. The system and method use the communication resource to establish a Bluetooth (BT) connection and communicate packets via the BT connection, the communicating of the packets based on the audio data.
