Patent Number Title Of Patent Date Issued
8149880 Media streaming synchronization April 3, 2012
A system and method for synchronously transmitting media data is described. Synchronization data may be transmitted by a cycle master for receipt by one or more cycle slaves. A cycle slave may update an internal state based on the synchronization data received from the cycle master.
7643810 Method and system for noise floor calibration and receive signal strength detection January 5, 2010
A system for detecting the level of the noise floor due to circuit noise as seen at the ADC for a wireless receiver. The system measures power after digitizing and filtering, and subtracts off any variable gain used in the analog front end to determine differentially the size of the
7636400 Decoding system and method for digital communications December 22, 2009
A Viterbi decoding system interprets bits in received QAM constellations as many-valued parameters rather than binary valued parameters. It performs the Viterbi algorithm using these many-valued parameters to provide results superior to hard decision decoding. Rather than applying a
