The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Methods and systems of extending battery life of remote battery-operated timekeeping devices by minimizing the number of required synchronizations per unit of time needed to maintain a predetermined accuracy of the devices. The number of synchronizations are minimized by first calculating a time error rate between the remote timekeeping device and a master device over a sample period. Then, a synchronization is delayed and the remote timekeeping device is compensated based on the time error rate. The compensation delays the need for a synchronization yet maintains the predetermined accuracy of the remote timekeeping device. In some embodiments, the remote timekeeping device is compensated and multiple synchronizations are delayed before a new synchronization is necessary to maintain the predetermined accuracy."

*** Intersil Americas Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 8 -- Intersil Americas, Milpitas, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,369,435) developed by Mark Fimoff, Hoffman Estates, Ill., Jinghua Jin, Palatine, Ill., and Jin H. Kim, Lake Zurich, Ill., for a "frame structure for a QAM system." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A novel framing method for a variable net bit rate digital communications system that utilizes a set of different QAM constellations and punctured trellis code combinations, each combination designated as a mode. This frame structure has a variable integral number of QAM symbols per frame depending on the selected mode, but the number of bytes and Reed-Solomon packets per frame is constant. This is achieved even though the number of data bits per QAM symbol for some modes is fractional. Also the number of trellis coder puncture pattern cycles per frame is an integer for all modes. This arrangement simplifies the synchronization of receiver processing blocks such as the Viterbi decoder, de-randomizer, byte de-interleaver, and Reed-Solomon decoder."
