U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Texas (Feb. 14)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 14 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Texas.

*** Applied Micro Circuits Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 14 -- Applied Micro Circuits, Sunnyvale, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,375,201) developed by Bradley John Booth, Austin, Texas, for an "ethernet PHY level security." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A system and method are provided for securing links at the physical (PHY) layer in an IEEE 802.3 Ethernet communication system. A local device (LD) receives an electrical waveform representing link partner security information from a network-connected link partner (LP) via unformatted message pages. The LD accesses predetermined LP reference information stored in a tangible memory medium. The LD compares the received LP security information to the LP reference information. In response to the LD matching the received LP security information to the LP reference information, a secure link to the LP is verified. Likewise, the LD may send electrical waveforms representing security information to the LP via the unformatted message pages. In response to the LP matching the LD security information to the LD reference information, a secure link to the LD is verified." The patent application was filed on March 5, 2009 (12/399,002).

The entire processing is done on the spatio-temporal correlation coefficient sequence of the observed data in order to avoid large matrix-vector multiplications. A further embodiment relates to a speech enhancement system that is composed of two stages. In the first stage, the noise component of the observed signal is whitened, and in the second stage a spatio-temporal power method is used to extract the most dominant speech component. In both the stages, the filters are adapted using the multichannel spatio-temporal correlation coefficients of the data and hence avoid large matrix vector multiplications."
