SCAN METHOD FOR KEYBOARDS

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

A scan method for keyboards is firstly to set a higher voltage or a lower voltage to a keyboard scan input/output port when a low voltage signal is generated at a keyboard scan input port, and then to detect a voltage at the keyboard scan input/output port or the keyboard scan input port so as to determine whether the detected low voltage signal is a valid button-depressed signal or a noise. Further, a grounding resistor is connected electrically to the keyboard scan input/output port, and the scan method prevails as well to determine whether or not a detected low voltage signal is a valid button-depressed signal.

METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MEASURING SIGNAL-TO-QUANTIZATION-NOISE RATIO

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

Apparatus for determining a signal-to-quantization-noise ratio of a quantization circuit includes a signal generator that generates an input test signal for input to the quantization circuit, circuitry for isolating, from output of the quantization circuit, a signal representing quantization noise, and circuitry for determining a ratio of the output of the quantization circuit to the signal representing quantization noise. The signal generator generates an analog test tone having a frequency, and the circuitry for isolating includes a notch filter filtering that frequency. Alternatively, the circuitry for isolating includes circuitry for generating a digital test signal, and a digital subtractor for subtracting the digital test signal from the output of the quantization circuit. According to another alternative, the circuitry for isolating includes a transformation circuit whose outputs represent a peak of the output of the quantization circuit and a noise floor of the output of the quantization circuit.



APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR TESTING AN ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTER

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

A method for use in testing an analog-to-digital converter. The method includes providing a set of bins, varying a voltage, taking samples of the voltage, providing a selection flag, associating each sample with one bin of the set of bins, and observing a number of samples associated with the bins. An apparatus includes an analog-to-digital converter configured to convert a voltage at an input node to a digital representation provided at an output node. The input node is configured to be coupled to a voltage generator. A sample select unit is configured to determine if a voltage at the input node at least equals a first threshold level and does not exceed a second threshold level. The apparatus is configured, based on the determining, to selectively associate the digital representation with a bin of a set of bins.



BACKGROUND CALIBRATION OF SAMPLER OFFSETS IN ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERTERS

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

A method for background calibration of sampler offsets in an Analog to Digital Converter (ADC), according to which one of the samplers of the ADC is established as a reference sampler, whose threshold and timing offsets will be the criterion for adjusting threshold offsets and timing offsets of all other samplers. Then each of the other samplers of the ADC, one at a time, is calibrated by selecting an uncalibrated sampler and establishing it as the current Sampler Under Calibration (SUC); disregarding contribution of the SUC to the output of the ADC; adjusting the threshold of the SUC to be identical to the threshold of the reference sampler; performing one-bit cross-correlation between the reference sampler and the SUC; establishing an error surface representing the threshold offset and timing offset of the SUC with respect to the reference sampler; adjusting the threshold and the timing of the SUC to be equal to the threshold and timing of the reference sampler; restoring level of the SUC to its original threshold with respect to the overall ADC and restoring contribution of the SUC to the output of the ADC.



CODESET COMMUNICATION FORMAT AND RELATED METHODS AND STRUCTURES

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

A codeset is described in a Public Codeset Communication Format (PCCF) as a format block including a plurality of fields having readily decipherable values, such as ASCII character values. One field is a mark/space information field that includes a sequence of mark time indicators and space time indicators for an operational signal of the codeset. A second field is a signal characteristic information field for the operational signal. Signal characteristic information may include carrier on/off information, repeat frame information, toggle control information, and last frame information. The PCCF is a codeset interchange format of general applicability.
