Systems and methods are provided for handling interference during communication of signals. A control signal based on leakage between the transmit path and the receive path, at least one signal applied in the transmit path during transmission of signals, and at least one signal generated in the receive path during processing of received signals. The control signal may then be applied into the receive path for use in completing processing of the received signals. One or more characteristics associated with the control signal may be set and/or adjusted based on one or more control signals applied in the transmit path. Characteristics of signals in the transmit path that may leak into the receive path may be tracked, and the control signal may be adjusted based on these Characteristics. Transmit power may be tracked, and the control signal may be adjusted based on the tracking of the transmit power.


Methods and systems for frequency generation may comprise in a low-noise block down-converter (LNB) comprising an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and a channel stacking switch (CSS): receiving a first satellite signal centered at a first frequency; receiving a second satellite signal centered at a second frequency; combining the first and second satellite signals to form a combined signal; the analog-to-digital converter transforming the combined signal from an analog signal to a digital signal; providing the digital signal to the CSS; receiving a third satellite signal centered at a third frequency; receiving a fourth satellite signal centered at a fourth frequency; translating the third satellite signal to a fifth frequency, combining the translated third satellite signal with fourth satellite signals to form a second combined signal; a second analog-to-digital converter transforming the combined signal from an analog signal to a second digital signal; and providing the second digital signal to the CSS.

A method, system and computer program for decompressing video data, storing the compressed video data in such a way that random access is possible and the data can be mapped efficiently into existing memory systems and interface protocols. The compression is accomplished via lossless compression using an algorithm optimized for video data. Due to the compressed format, data transmission consumes less bandwidth than using uncompressed data and prevents degradation in the decoded video.

A method for managing data transmission comprising making a bandwidth on a network resource available to at least one requestor for transmitting or receiving data according to a first request of a first type, the first type have a prescribed quality of service guarantee; transmitting first data in accordance with the first type to or from the at least one requestor on the network resource using a first portion of the bandwidth, if the first data are available to be transferred to or from the at least one requestor; transmitting second data according to a second request of a second type on the network resource to or from the at least one requestor or a second requestor, the second data transmitted without a quality of service guarantee using a second portion of the bandwidth, if the first portion of the prescribed bandwidth is less than the entire bandwidth.


Systems and methods for canceling cross-coupled satellite signals in a LNB IC include receiving a first satellite signal at a first input of the LNB IC and filtering the first satellite signal using a first adaptive filter, the first adaptive filter having first filter coefficients; combining the adjusted first satellite signal with a second satellite signal received at a second input of the LNB IC to generate a first combined satellite signal; measuring the total output power of the combined satellite signal; changing the filter coefficients of the first adaptive filter; remeasuring the total output power of the first combined satellite signal after the changing of the first filter coefficients to determine whether the total power of the first combined satellite signal has decreased.

A BCN network with BCN modems that enable network wired devices to communicate over a typical home coaxial network that may include passive splitters and different types of coaxial cable.


An integrated circuit voltage regulator includes a transconductor first stage; and a negative impedance cancellation stage, where the negative impedance cancellation stage comprises cross-coupled transistors at outputs of said transconductor first stage, and resistors in the transconductor first stage and the negative impedance cancellation stage introduce zeros in a transfer function, compensating for parasitic poles. The resistors may compensate for parasitic capacitance inherent in transistors. Load transistors may be coupled to outputs of the transconductance first stage. The voltage regulator may be implemented in a Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS) structure, which may be a system-on-chip integrated circuit. The voltage regulator may provide immunity to power supply noise. The negative impedance cancellation stage may include differential input transistors coupled to the cross-coupled transistors.


The use of traffic flag symbols allows a large number of CPEs to transmit traffic notifications to a network controller. In some such embodiments, hundreds of CPEs simultaneously transmit traffic flags on different subcarriers of a channel. For example, in a MoCA2 based access network, up to 480 CPEs can transmit flags in only 5 s in the 100 MHz-wide channel.

Systems and methods for correcting frequency error in a received signal include: receiving a satellite signal, the satellite signal having a bandwidth and a center frequency; determining the profile of the satellite signal; computing the center frequency of the satellite signal based on the profile of the received signal; and generating a reference signal at the computed center frequency. The systems and methods may further include computing a center frequency of each of a plurality of satellite signals based on the computed center frequency. Determining the profile may include sweeping a tuner above and below a given reference frequency; measuring the received signal strength during the sweeping operation; and determining the profile based on the received signal strength.
