20130038475 | Systems and Methods for Variable Rate Conversion - Poly-phase filters are used to offer an efficient and low complexity solution to rate conversion. However, they suffer from inflexibility and are not easily reconfigured. A novel design for rate converters employ poly-phase filters but utilize interpolation between filter coefficients to add flexibility to rate conversion. This interpolation can be implemented as an interpolation of the poly-phase filter results. Additional approximations can be made to further reduce the amount of calculations required to implement a flexible rate converter. | 02-14-2013 |

20100045491 | INPUT/OUTPUT (IO) INTERFACE AND METHOD OF TRANSMITTING IO DATA - An input/output (IO) interface includes a data encoder which encodes each of a plurality of pieces of parallel data having different timings and generates a plurality of pieces of encoded data, and an alternating current (AC) coupling transmission unit which transmits the plurality of encoded data in an AC coupling method. The data encoder compares first parallel data with second parallel data from among the plurality of pieces of parallel data on a bit-by-bit basis and obtains the number of bits whose logic states have transited between the first parallel data and the second parallel data. When the number of bits whose logic states have transited is greater than or equal to a reference number of bits, the data encoder inverts bit values of the second parallel data to generate the encoded data. When the number of bits whose logic states have transited is less than the reference number of bits, the data encoder maintains the bit values of the second parallel data to generate the encoded data. | 02-25-2010 |

20100265109 | ENCODING AND DECODING TECHNIQUES FOR BANDWIDTH-EFFICIENT COMMUNICATION - An encoder encodes data into parallel codewords. Each codeword is expressed as a set of logic 0s and a set of logic 1s on two sets of output nodes. The encoder selects a current codeword which differs from the immediately preceding codeword by a fixed number of zero-to-one transitions on the first set of nodes and a fixed number of one-to-zero transitions on the second set of nodes. The current codeword is selected such that the first and second sets of nodes are different than additional nodes that contain transitions between the immediately preceding codeword and a bi-preceding codeword, and that logic values on additional nodes are unchanged between immediately preceding codeword and current codeword. A decoder decodes the codewords by comparing symbols on node pairs other than those for which transitions were expressed in the preceding code word, and decoding the results of those comparisons. | 10-21-2010 |
