A power control mechanism having a number of states and suitable for used in a communication system in which data transmissions are not continuous (i.e., bursty in nature). In one embodiment, a power control unit includes a data processor, a state machine, and a threshold adjustment element. The data processor receives and processes an input signal to provide status of data frames received from the input signal for a particular data transmission. The state machine receives the frame status and provides a current state for the power control unit. The current state is indicative of a status of a particular communication session that includes the data transmission, and is one of a number of possible states. The threshold adjustment element receives the frame status and the current state and adjusts a power control setpoint in response thereto. The setpoint is used to control the signal quality of the input signal and is adjusted in accordance with a particular adjustment scheme (i.e., a particular set of 'rules') selected from a number of possible adjustment schemes. Each possible adjustment scheme is associated with a respective possible state and defines a particular set of rules for adjusting the setpoint.
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.
