U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in New Jersey (Nov. 23)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 23 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in New Jersey.

*** NEC Laboratories America Assigned Patent for Methods to Transmit and Receive for Low Dimensions MIMO Systems ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 23 -- NEC Laboratories America, Princeton, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,315,328) developed by Mohammad A. Khojastepour, North Brunswick, N.J., for "methods to transmit and receive for low dimensions MIMO systems." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Methods and apparatus are disclosed for applying successive multi-rank beamforming strategies (e.g., successive precoding strategies) for the design of precoders over a set of parallel channels. Successive beamforming is applied to a narrow band channel model and is also applied for finer quantization of a single beamforming vector (e.g., recursive beamforming). A first embodiment provides the optimal approach with high complexity. An alternative embodiment provides successive beamforming for near optimal precoding selection with medium complexity. A low complexity method for precoder selection is also provided wherein a channel representative matrix for the set of parallel channels is determined and successive beamforming on the calculated channel representative is applied." The patent application was filed on May 20, 2011 (13/112,672). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,315,328&OS=8,315,328&RS=8,315,328 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** LSI Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 23 -- LSI, Milpitas, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,315,133) developed by Roger A. Fratti, Mohnton, Pa., and John A. Michejda, Berkeley Heights, N.J., for "controlling an optical-disc reader using surface marks." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An optical-disc player having a reader and a controller. The reader derives out-of-band information from surface marks of an optical disc, where the controller controls operations of the reader based on the derived information. The controlled operations may involve the reading and rendering of embedded data of the optical disc. For example, a person writes the words "Spanish" and "widescreen" on the surface of a DVD with a marker and inserts the DVD in a DVD player. The DVD player scans the surface of the DVD and sends the resulting image data to an optical character recognition (OCR) module. The OCR module outputs a text file containing the words "Spanish" and "widescreen" to a controller (e.g., Microsoft HDi runtime). In response, the controller sets the playback language to Spanish and the screen format to widescreen." The patent application was filed on July 9, 2009 (12/500,089).

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Mip-map construction is provided for three-dimensional rendering from an anisotropic dataset. One or more mip-map levels are generated by down sampling in the world space rather than texture space. The down sampling may be by an arbitrary scale factor rather than a power of two. For example, the voxels may be down sampled along one dimension by less than half (e.g., 16 to 12). The scale factors may be different along different dimensions. This non-uniform reduction in voxels may result in the mip-map being more isotropic than the anisotropic dataset." The patent application was filed on March 28, 2007 (11/692,232).
