King of Prussia, PA (PRWEB) October 5, 2004
IComm Technologies Inc. has just been granted by the USPTO a very important patent for its technology on Turbo Codes Decoder implementing concatenated SISO Log-MAP decoders. Its patent serial number US6799295 was issued on September 28, 2004 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). ICOMMÂs patented Turbo Codes Decoder is part of its Wireless Baseband Processor specifically designed for applications in commercial 3rd Generation W-CDMA/CDMA2000 (3GPP/ 3GPP2) Base-station equipments and consumer wireless Receivers portable devices, which provides the best performance in term BER, and data throughput. While other patented Turbo Convolutional Block Codes from French Telecom specifically designed for using in applications for space explorations, which are not feasible for commercial applications.
Furthermore, ICOMMÂs patented Turbo Codes Decoder is the most powerful forward error correction (FEC) commercially available today, operating near the Shannon limit and achieving greater power efficiency than current commercially available FEC schemes. Also, ICOMMÂs patented Wireless Baseband Processor implements Turbo Codes Decoders with Diversity processing for computing signals from separate antennas, decoding multipath signals that have arrived at the terminal via different routes after being reflected from buildings, trees, or hills, which increases SNR by more than 6dB enabling data rates up to 2Mbps.
IComm offers its patented Turbo Codes Decoder product IP soft core with IP licensing, which is available in both VHDL and Verilog RTL codes. This patent Wireless Baseband Processor with its Turbo Codes Decoder is being made available through the Turbo Codes Licensing Program to ASIC, FPGA, DSP software developers, and wireless communications equipment manufacturers, as well as IP Core Developers.
A patent license is required in most instances for implementation of embedded Turbo Codes Decoders within a 3rd Generation wireless W-CDMA communication systems applications, such as an ASIC, FPGA, DSP software developers, or W-CDMA communication equipments (base-stations and portable devices) manufacturers.
