A wireless network communication system and method in which the wireless channel can be determined by selecting a vacant pseudonoise (PN) or spreading code. When communication is started, in order to judge whether a PN code is being employed by another communication group, the degree of correlation between the received signal converted to an intermediate frequency or a base-band frequency by a transceiver and a reference pseudonoise code signal is detected using a correlation circuit within a correlation detector. There is a channel controller which controls the PN code used by the communication terminal which receives an output of the correlation detector which correlates a received channel signal with a reference PN code generated by the PN code generator. If the correlation output signal is not smaller than a threshold value, it is determined that the PN code is to be employed. Furthermore, at the time of transmission, the pseudonoise code generator is controlled so as to supply the selected PN code to a transceiver. The transceiver combines the data to be transmitted with the PN code to be used in order to determine the final signal which is to be transmitted by the terminal.
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.
