A method to indicate a rate is proposed. In this method, a first wireless device determines a rate indicator and then transmits a packet including the rate indicator to a second wireless device. In one embodiment, the rate indicator can be determined by the first wireless device. In another embodiment, the second wireless device can suggest a rate and send it to the first wireless device.


A method of indoor positioning using Fine Timing Measurement (FTM) avoiding co-located access point (AP) is proposed. In a wireless local area network, an AP obtains neighboring AP location information and determines a list of co-located BSSIDs. In a first option, an STA first selects an AP and query for AP location and co-located BSSID information using ANQP (Access Network Query Protocol). In a second option, the STA first selects an AP and initiates FTM protocol with the selected AP and thereby obtaining AP location and co-located BSSID information. Upon obtaining the AP location and the co-located BSSID list, the STA can initiates FTM protocol with additional non-co-located BSSs for determining an accurate STA location.


A method and apparatus of deriving a temporal derived motion vector in a second direction based on a given motion vector in a first direction for motion vector prediction are disclosed. According to the present invention, a given motion vector for a current block is determined, where the given motion vector points from the current block in a first direction. A reference motion vector associated with a first reference block in a first reference frame is identified. Then, based on the reference motion vector and the given motion vector, a temporal derived motion vector is derived. The temporal derived motion vector points from the current block to a second reference block in a second reference frame in a second direction different from the first direction. The temporal derived motion vector is then used as one predictor for encoding or decoding of the motion vector of the current block.

A method and apparatus for deriving a sub-block motion vector for the current sub-block based on a motion-model function depending on the current sub-block location are disclosed. The derived sub-block motion vector is then used for encoding or decoding the sub-block. The motion-model function may correspond to an affine motion-model function or a bilinear motion-model function. In one embodiment, a new Merge mode can be used to apply prediction of a current block by applying prediction on the sub-block basis using the sub-block motion vector derived from the motion-model function. In another embodiment, an additional inter prediction mode can be used to apply prediction of a current block by applying prediction on the sub-block basis using the sub-block motion vector derived from the motion-model function.

Techniques related to loading-based dynamic voltage and frequency scaling are described. A method may involve measuring a loading of a first power domain. The first power domain may include one or more circuit sections each of which operating in one of a plurality of loading states. The measuring of the loading of the first power domain may involve determining a respective loading state of each of the one or more circuit sections of the first power domain. The measured loading of the first power domain may be representative of a combination of the one or more loading states of the one or more circuit sections. The method may also involve determining at least one operating parameter of the first power domain according to the measured loading of the first power domain.

A multi-chip structure comprises a switch system on chip (switch SOC) (110), a plurality of serializer/deserializer (SerDes) chips (120_1-120_4) positioned around the switch SOC (100), and a plurality of inter-chip interfaces (130_1-130_4) for connecting the switch SOC (110) to the plurality of SerDes chips (120_1-1 20_4), respectively.


There is provided a communication receiver comprising: an input for receiving a radio frequency, RF, input signal; and at least one finite impulse response, FIR, discrete time filter, DTF. The at least one FIR DTF comprises: an input circuit comprising an input port for sampling the RF input signal at a sampling frequency that is comparable to the input RF input signal; and N parallel branches, each branch having a set of input unit sampling capacitances, where each unit sampling capacitance is independently selectively coupleable to an output summing node. The input circuit is configured to convert an equivalent input impedance of the at least one FIR DTF around the sampling frequency to a real impedance.

A plurality of sensing coils may be fabricated adjacent to one or more planar, current-carrying conductors. The sensing coils may detect a magnetic field generated by time-varying current flowing through the one or more planar conductors. The sensing coils may be arranged to cancel uniform and linear-gradient magnetic fields.


A computing system performs a policy-based machine code compression method. The computing system hosts a virtual machine that generates machine code from bytecode. The computing system determines whether to compress the machine code file according to a set of conditions specified by a policy. If the set of conditions is satisfied, the machine code file is compressed. For system booting and package installation, the machine code file can be deleted to save storage. When launching an application, the compressed machine code file is decompressed for execution. When the application process terminates, the decompressed machine code file can be deleted. The machine code file compression can be performed on a mobile device to save storage, or on a host when building a system image to reduce download time. Parallel compression and decompression algorithms can be used for the machine code file compression and decompression in a multi-core computing system.


A constant on-time pulse width control-based apparatus (103) capable of detecting a transient event of a voltage converter (100) includes a specific comparator (110), a logic circuit (115), and a controller (105). The specific comparator (110) generates a logic control signal to the logic circuit (115) according to two resultant signals (VC1, VC2) of the controller (105). The logic circuit (115) generates a pulse control signal (Ton) with an on-time pulse width to charge an output capacitor according to the logic control signal. The controller (105) generates the two resultant signals (VC1, VC2) to the specific comparator (110) by generating a voltage ramp signal (Vramp) and amplifying an output voltage ripple signal (Vripple) based on a reference voltage (Vref), and detects the transient event to dynamically adjust the on-time pulse width of the pulse control signal (Ton) according to the amplified output voltage ripple signal (VC1).
