Qualcomm Incorporated is an American global semiconductor company that designs and markets wireless telecommunications products and services. The company headquarters are located in San Diego, California, USA. The company has 157 worldwide locations. The parent company is Qualcomm Incorporated , which includes the Qualcomm Technology Licensing Division . Qualcomm's wholly owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. , operates substantially all of Qualcomm's R&D activities, as well as its product and services businesses, including its semiconductor business, Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. In November 2014, Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf announced at the company’s annual analyst day meeting held in New York City that the company is planning to target the data center market with new server chips based on ARM technology and plans to make them commercially available by the end of 2015.

Patent
Qualcomm | Date: 2017-07-12

A multi-panel device is disclosed. In a particular embodiment, the device includes a first hinge coupled to a first panel and coupled to a second panel. The first panel includes a first display surface and the second panel includes a second display surface. The second hinge is coupled to the second panel and coupled to a third panel that includes a third display surface. The device also includes a sensor coupled to the first hinge to detect a relative orientation of the first panel to the second panel. The device includes a processor responsive to the sensor to detect a device configuration. The processor is configured to adjust a user interface, such as a browser interface, displayed at the first display surface, the second display surface, and the third display surface based on the detected device configuration.


A system and method for controlling software applications on one or more wireless devices where each wireless device is in selective communication with one or more application managing servers over a wireless network. Each wireless device has one or more selectively executable resident software applications and at least one software application requires a valid license for each execution, and upon the attempted execution of a software application, the wireless device determines if a license is present. If a license is not present, the wireless device selectively prompts, either automatically or at the direction of the user of the wireless device, an application managing server for transmission of a license, receives the transmitted license, and installs the license on the wireless device such that the software application is again licensed and executable.


Methods, apparatus, and computer readable storage mediums for enabling reduced power consumption in wireless devices operating in a neighbor aware network are disclosed. In one aspect, a method includes generating a first message, the first message indicating beacon transmit window information, the beacon transmit window information indicating a first time interval when one or more beacon messages are transmittable, and transmitting the first message on the neighbor aware network.


A first neighbor awareness networking (NAN) device may access data network infrastructure and may advertise a service associated with the data network infrastructure to a second NAN device. For example, the first NAN device may announce the service via a service announcement. The second NAN device may subscribe to the service through the first NAN device, and the second NAN device may proxy the service announcement to another NAN device. The other NAN device may also subscribe to the service in response to receiving the service announcement. For example, the second NAN device may operate as a relay point to provide the service to the other NAN device.

Methods, non-transitory processor-readable storage media, systems, and devices for provisioning devices associated with wireless identity transmitters. An embodiment method performed by a proximity broadcast receiver may include operations for receiving a broadcast message including a secure identifier from a wireless identity transmitter, transmitting to a central server a sighting message that includes the secure identifier and an identity of the proximity broadcast receiver, receiving from the central server a return message that includes identification information related to the received broadcast message and that is authorized to be distributed to the proximity broadcast receiver based on data stored on the central server, and provisioning a device associated with the received broadcast message based on the identification information from the received return message. The method may also include identifying a software source from the received return message, requesting the software from the identified software source, and installing the received software.


A method of processing asynchronous event-driven input samples of a continuous time signal includes calculating a short-time Fourier transform (STFT) output based on the event-driven input samples. The STFT output may be calculated by expressing an encoding pulse and an STFT window function as a sum of complex weighted causal complex exponentials. The method further includes interpolating output between events.


In an aspect of the disclosure, a method, a computer-readable medium, and an apparatus are provided. The apparatus may be a wireless device. The wireless device determines a first subset of resource units (RUs) of a set of RUs that extends across a bandwidth of a channel in a transmission time period, the first subset of RUs including less RUs than the set of RUs, each RU of the set of RUs including at least 26 tones. The wireless device communicates at least one of data or control information in the first subset of the RUs.


Wireless communication devices are provided with direct video and audio streaming capability. The streaming capability may support overlays. Some implementations include incorporation of these features into devices with a mirroring display mode.


Methods, systems, and devices are described for using low energy (LE) signaling to indicate to a wireless station (STA), prior to transmission of a beacon, whether the beacon will further indicate that an access point (AP) has data to transmit to the STA. In one aspect, a method may include receiving, using a first radio of a wireless STA using a LE communication protocol, a first signal comprising an indication of a traffic indication map (TIM) of a wireless local area network (WLAN) beacon, and selectively powering up a second radio of the wireless STA to receive the WLAN beacon in response to the indication. In one aspect, the wireless STA may power up the first radio at a predetermined interval prior to a target beacon transmission time (TBTT) of the WLAN beacon.

Methods and systems are disclosed for damping unwanted vibrations or ringing of a lens in an imaging device. For example, one method includes determining a target distance to move a lens, and dividing the target distance into multiple steps having at least a first step and a subsequent step, moving the lens, via an actuator, by the first step, thereby causing a first vibration, retrieving a damping parameter indicative of a time delay, the damping parameter being based on at least one characteristic of the actuator and the number of steps, and repeating said moving the lens at least one subsequent step after delaying the subsequent step by one of the damping parameters, each moving the lens a subsequent step causing a subsequent vibration, and the damping parameters affecting the vibration such that the first and subsequent vibrations at least in part modify each other to lower overall vibration.
