A joint synchronizer and decoder that implements two decision aided processes, which are referred to as “decision aided candidate selection” and “decision aided synchronization and decoding.” Decision aided candidate selection may be used to select a carrier frequency offset by selecting among a number of candidates for this parameter based on an indication of decoding success. Decision aided synchronization and decoding may be used for phase tracking based on an indication of decoding success. Although these joint synchronizing and decoding techniques may be implemented together, they may also be implemented independently. The joint synchronizer and decoder may be implemented within a return channel receiver in a DVB-RCS system using turbo coding and quadrature phase shift key (QPSK) data modulation.
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.
