20110032973RADIO COMMUNICATION SYSTEM AND TRANSMITTING APPARATUS USED FOR THE SAME - To provide a system that can accommodate a greater number of terminals within a limited band and can obtain a higher transmission rate. While the number of frequency signals (spectrums) output in parallel by performing a spread spectrum from the DFT unit of each terminal is 12, the number of sub-carriers constituting one sub-channel is set at 10 or 11. In this case, the users (users A and G) allocated to the sub-channels at both ends of the band will not perform transmission of one frequency signal at the end (one sub-carrier) of all the frequency signals output from the DFT unit, whereas the users (users B to F) allocated to the other sub-channels will not perform transmission of the frequency signals at the ends (two sub-carriers). This transmission can be realized by deleting (clipping) the associated number of signals from both ends or from one end of the frequency signals output from the DFT unit of each terminal and allocating the frequency signals after clipping, to individual sub-channels.02-10-2011
20090110033MULTICARRIER SUB-LAYER FOR DIRECT SEQUENCE CHANNEL AND MULTIPLE-ACCESS CODING - Carrier Interferometry (CI) provides wideband transmission protocols with frequency-band selectivity to improve interference rejection, reduce multipath fading, and enable operation across non-continuous frequency bands. Direct-sequence protocols, such as DS-CDMA, are provided with CI to greatly improve performance and reduce transceiver complexity. CI introduces families of orthogonal polyphase codes that can be used for channel coding, spreading, and/or multiple access. Unlike conventional DS-CDMA, CI coding is not necessary for energy spreading because a set of CI carriers has an inherently wide aggregate bandwidth. Instead, CI codes are used for channelization, energy smoothing in the frequency domain, and interference suppression. CI-based ultra-wideband protocols are implemented via frequency-domain processing to reduce synchronization problems, transceiver complexity, and poor multipath performance of conventional ultra-wideband systems. CI allows wideband protocols to be implemented with space-frequency processing and other array-processing techniques to provide either or both diversity combining and sub-space processing. CI also enables spatial processing without antenna arrays. Even the bandwidth efficiency of multicarrier protocols is greatly enhanced with CI. CI-based wavelets avoid time and frequency resolution trade-offs associated with conventional wavelet processing. CI-based Fourier transforms eliminate all multiplications, which greatly simplifies multi-frequency processing. The quantum-wave principles of CI improve all types of baseband and radio processing.04-30-2009

Code word-to-layer mapping is fixed within a DFTS-OFDM symbol and only shifted across consecutive DFTS-OFDM symbols. The method begins by receiving a multiple-stream transmission by a mapping module for transmission. The transmission includes a plurality of subframes and information carrying symbols transmitted on a plurality of layers. A per-symbol layer shifting scheme is then implemented on the transmission where layer shifting is conducted upon each symbol.12-22-2011
20120093199METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DE-SPREADING A SPREAD-SPECTRUM AUDIO/VIDEO SIGNAL - A digital video communication device is provided. The digital video communication device includes a transmitter providing a spread-spectrum video signal including a predetermined frequency spread value and a frequency ratio and a receiver receiving the spread-spectrum video signal. The receiver includes a frequency synthesizer, a free-running clock generator configured to generate a free-running clock signal, wherein the free-running clock signal is used as a reference clock signal input to the frequency synthesizer. The receiver further includes a digital control logic circuit configured to separate the frequency ratio from the spread-spectrum video signal, and a line buffer coupled to the digital control logic circuit and the frequency synthesizer, the line buffer adjusting the frequency ratio and sending the adjusted frequency ratio to the frequency synthesizer, wherein the frequency synthesizer combines the free-running clock signal and the adjusted frequency ratio, and outputs a de-spread clock signal.04-19-2012
