Station scan circuitry for a radio-frequency receiver and corresponding methods are disclosed that efficiently determine the presence of a station on available channels. The station scan circuitry includes circuitry that determines if the signal power on a given channel exceeds a threshold value. Additional circuitry compares the channel signal strength and the adjacent channel signal to determine if a ratio of the two exceeds a threshold level. If both the signal power and the signal strength ratio are sufficient, the station scan circuitry indicates that a station has been found. To make the signal strength comparison, the station scan circuitry includes circuitry for determining a post-filter signal strength and a pre-filter signal strength for the received signal.
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.
