A data stream (b(t)) including high ('1') and low ('0') logical states is transmitted over an optical link by means of an optical source adapted to be driven via the data strema, to generate an optical signal for transmission over the optical link. The optical signal includes optical pulses generated at the occurrence of high logical states in the data stream b(t). The input data stream b(t) is coded into a coded data stream B(t) prior to the transmission over the optical link. The coding step minimizes the logical high states in the coded data stream, and the optical source is driven by means of the coded data stream wherein the number of logical high states has been minimized.
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.
