Ikanos Communications has been assigned a patent for a “multi-tone transceiver with differentiated communication channel robustness”

A multi-tone transceiver is a device that can separate data into subchannels. Each subchannel can support a different amount of data. For example, the first 32 channels may be full-duplex, while the remaining 224 are half-duplex. The data rate on each loaded channel varies depending on the spectral response of the transmission channel.

The invention involves a multi-tone transceiver that supports multiple communication channels, each with a different robustness. The more robust channels may be used for overhead or control information, and the less robust channels may be used to carry user data.

The transceiver comprises a framer, tone orderer, encoder, and cyclic prefix remover. It also includes a digital filter and a digital-to-analog converter.

The multi-tone transceiver is able to improve the overall SNR of data transmitted. It does this by increasing the gain of the transmitter in order to increase the signal energy. As a result, SNR increases and bit errors are reduced.

The system is also noise-isolating. This improves the link’s robustness and enables the reliable transfer of control information and adaptive bit-loading tables. This prevents data from being re-trained. The system can also be tuned to optimize data and control throughput.

The new multi-tone transceiver reduces the noise generated by cross-talk noise. It also prevents side-lobe roll-off, which is a result of the frequency-domain correlation between fast and slow data paths. It can also reduce interference at the boundaries of the band.

The system operates on a DMT communication protocol. In this type of protocol, there are multiple sub-channels. However, when they interact, they encounter signal interference and noise in both the time and frequency domains. This causes a neighbor near end crosstalk.

The multi-tone transceiver according to this embodiment is a semiconductor device that divides a single transmission channel into a plurality of equal-bandwidth sub-channels. Each sub-channel is then allocated a first and second parallel data path. The first data path is a relatively faster data path. The second data path is an interleaved data path.

The multi-tone transceiver uses the DMT technology to determine the data rate in both the downstream and upstream directions. In the DMT modem, the transmit part sends a reference pattern to the transmission channel, and the receiver part estimates the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The SNR determines the constellation size.

Intermolecular, San Jose, Calif., has been assigned a patent for a “substrate processing including a masking layer”

The San Jose, Calif.-based firm has been awarded a patent for a “substretrate processing including a masking layer.” The invention covers a method of making a masking layer and a delivery system for a biomedical product. The patent was filed on Aug. 3, 2004 and has five co-inventors.

Another San Jose-based company has been awarded a patent for “substrate processing including a patterned masking layer.” The new technology has been developed by a team of scientists from six companies. The San Jose-based company was awarded the patent on Nov. 10 (#7,881,426), with co-inventors Steven Leslie Hills, Eugene Alex Ingerma, Pierfrancesco Landolfi, Stephen L. Crook, and William J. McGann.

In addition to LSI, two other San Jose-based companies have been assigned a patent for the “masking layer” technology. These companies have developed a system for early platform initialization that allows for parallel processing of the process.

The company has also filed two additional patents for its new EACC chip, which is a DNA amplification tool. The company has been awarded a patent for the technology.

Another San Jose company, Intermolecular, San Jose, Calif, has been assigned a patent for patented methods of masking layers and processing. The invention is based on a method of processing a peptide material using a masking layer.

Siemens Medical Solutions USA has been assigned a patent

Siemens Medical Solutions USA, based in the City of Santa Clara, California, has been assigned a patent for a new surgical device. The device will help doctors and nurses to detect and treat certain conditions faster. The patent was filed on Feb. 25, 2011 and is being developed by Siemens Medical Solutions USA, a global company.

The patent covers a method of responding to a query from a data processing system. It also covers the interactive service management. This technique helps physicians to provide the best care for their patients and ensures that the patient is comfortable and relaxed while receiving treatment.

Kolo Technologies has been assigned a patent

Kolo Technologies is a company based in Santa Clara, California. It has been assigned a patent for its development of a medical test. The company developed the test by using a patented method. A team of scientists developed the device and submitted a patent application on Nov. 17, 2006. The company received a grant for the research and development of the test on Dec. 18, 2009.

The company has patented an advanced semiconductor technology that allows it to produce a higher-quality product faster than ever. The company developed a system to make these semiconductors using plasma. The patented process includes a plasma that is heated before etching. This method is called pre-gate plasma etching.

The company developed this technology in conjunction with Intel Corporation. The patent, named 7,881,390, was created by four co-inventors based in Santa Clara. They include John Sadowsky of Mesa, Ariz., and Alex Waizman of Sunnyvale, Calif.

Intel has also been awarded a patent (7,882,351) for a new method of parallelizing source code. The patent was developed by Ehu Cohen, Hong Wang and John Shen. It was filed on Dec. 21, 2007. The company expects the new technology to have a large impact on the semiconductor industry.

Kolo Technologies has also been assigned a patent. The patent was granted to five co-inventors. The patent covers structured documents, computer programs, and three-dimensional objects. The company expects to earn millions of dollars from the patent. This award is a great step for the company.

The company has also been awarded a patent for its ocular therapy. The company has partnered with five other companies to develop the product. They were jointly awarded the patent on Feb. 9, 2006. The company has three other patents that have been issued since then.

In addition to this patent, the company has also been awarded a patent for a device developed by four engineers. The invention is called Morpho Detection and was developed by Steven Leslie Hills, Eugene Alex Ingerma, Pierfrancesco Landolfi and Stephen L. Crook. The patent covers a method of scanning an object.
