Rivada Research Assigned Patent for Location Based Information for Wireless Handsets

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 2 -- Rivada Research, Colorado Springs, Colorado, has been assigned a patent (9,860,868) developed by four co-inventors for a "method and system for providing enhanced location based information for wireless handsets using dead reckoning." The co-inventors are Clint Smith, Warwick, New York, Alan Joseph J. Caceres, Brooklyn, New York, Cesar Alfonso Aguilar, Brooklyn, New York, and Purnima Surampudi, Katy, Texas. The abstract states: "Methods, devices and systems for generating enhanced location information on or about a mobile device may include improved dead reckoning solutions in which the mobile device performs location determination calculations with the aid of network components or global positioning systems (GPS). The network aided location information may be provided to the processor and utilized in measuring the accuracy of sensor based location calculations. The mobile device may utilize local sensors to obtain a set of combined sensor output location information, which may seed execution of dead reckoning. To ensure that most accurate location information is provide to the enhanced location based service, the dead reckoning location information may be compared to a current best estimate. Results of the comparison may be passed to the enhanced location based service and the methods, systems, and devices may reiterate the location determination."

The patent application was filed on Nov. 28, 2016 (15/361,966). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=9,860,868.PN.&OS=PN/9,860,868&RS=PN/9,860,868

Knowles Electronics Assigned Patent for Apparatus to Clip Incoming Signals in Opposing Directions

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 3 -- Knowles Electronics, Itasca, Illinois, has been assigned a patent (9,859,879) developed by three co-inventors for a "method and apparatus to clip incoming signals in opposing directions when in an off state." The co-inventors are Dean A. Badillo, Schaumburg, Illinois, Michael Jennings, Plano, Texas, and Craig Stein, Naperville, Illinois. The abstract states: "A MOSFET active-disable switch is configured to clip an incoming signal in opposing directions when in an off state. By one approach the clipping is symmetrical and accordingly the switch clips both positive and negative peaks of the incoming signal. In many application settings it is useful for the clipping to serve to decrease a predetermined kind of resultant distortion such as even order distortion. In the on state this MOSFET active-disable switch is configured to not clip the incoming signal in opposing directions."

The patent application was filed on Sept. 11, 2015 (14/852,054). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=9,859,879.PN.&OS=PN/9,859,879&RS=PN/9,859,879
