A ring detect/Caller I.D. detect circuit employs first and second operational amplifiers supplied with a differential input from the AC side of a diode bridge. The differential input is converted to a single ended input supplied in a first mode to a ring detect comparator supplied with a plurality of selectable reference voltages and in a second mode to a comparator which produces a digital Caller I.D. output signal. An impedance in the feedback loop of the first and second operational amplifiers is switch-selectable to enable the first and second modes of operation, and each of the selectable reference voltages is chosen to permit proper ring signal detection in a particular corresponding geography.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
