20100079321 - Analogue-to-digital converter (adc) dynamic range and gain control: The present invention relates to a method for using the peak-to-average power ratio (PAR) of signals received by a receiver to control the gain of the receiver for an analogue-to-digital converter (ADC) and/or to control the dynamic range of the ADC.... Agent: Alston & Bird LLP
20100079322 - High noise environment measurement technique: An electronic measurement system for extracting a small AC signal from a dominant DC background signal, which can be changing at a rate similar to that at which the desired signal changes. The invention is particularly useful for pulse rate measurement of a subject even while undergoing vigorous motion such... Agent: Telesen Ltd.
20100079323 - Switching converters controlled via sigma delta modulation: Low-cost switching converter systems are provided which combine analog generation of a current signal with digital generation of a loop error signal that is realized with a control loop that includes a high-resolution, low-bandwidth sigma-delta modulator and a low-resolution digital-to-analog converter. The current signal and error signal are differenced to... Agent: Koppel, Patrick, Heybl & Dawson
20100079324 - Sigma-delta converter noise cancellation: Embodiments provide apparatuses, systems, and methods to convert an analog signal input into a sigma-delta digital output at a high sampling rate and correct for noise components of the digital output. An analog filter coupled to a sigma-delta converter accepts a noise-shaped analog signal from the sigma-delta converter to attenuate... Agent: Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, P.C.
