Agent: Texas Instruments Incorporated
20090300464 - Radio communication system: A base station creates a dummy pattern added with an error correction code, during occurring of a control channel not allocated for transmission of control information, transmits the dummy pattern instead of control information at a power level lower than a normal power level. A mobile station decodes control information... Agent: Mr. Jackson Chen
20090300465 - Statistical tracking for flash memory: A system includes a read module, a statistical data generating module, and a storing module. The read module reads charge levels of nonvolatile memory cells and generates read signals. The statistical data generating module generates statistical data based on the read signals. The storing module stores the statistical data. The... Agent: Harness, Dickey & Pierce P.L.C
20090300466 - Error correction method and error correction circuit: In an error correction method, an error correction of data can be completed readily in a short period of time. In this method, actual data are written together with additional data to a magnetic disk having sectors. The actual data have a first length. The additional data are produced from... Agent: Greer, Burns & Crain
20090300467 - Using a phase change memory as a high volume memory: A phase change memory may be utilized in place of more conventional, higher volume memories such as static random access memory, flash memory, or dynamic random access memory. To account for the fact that the phase change memory is not yet a high volume technology, an error correcting code may... Agent: Trop, Pruner & Hu, P.C.
20090300468 - Forward error correction: A receiver is arranged to start receiving a data frame 80 including application data followed by parity data. An erasure information table is generated, and includes one element for each element of a data frame 80. If there are no errors in the application data, the receiver is powered-down to... Agent: Harrington & Smith, PC
20090300469 - System and method for inter-packet channel coding and decoding: A system and method for inter-packet channel encoding/decoding for recovering lost packets, while minimizing network latency and delay. The novel inter-packet channel encoding/decoding scheme described herein operates on a running-basis. This running-basis scheme advantageously allows for a large number of packet losses to be corrected at a receiving node.... Agent: Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox P.l.l.c.
