U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Illinois (Feb. 21)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 21 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Illinois.

*** Motorola Mobility Assigned Patent for Method and Apparatus for Reusing Packet Data Control Assignment Bits for Resource Allocation Indications ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 21 -- Motorola Mobility, Libertyville, Ill., has been assigned a patent (8379622) developed by four co-inventors for a "method and apparatus for reusing packet data control assignment bits for resource allocation indications." The co-inventors are Sean M. McBeath, Keller, Texas, Hao Bi, Lake Zurich, Ill., John D. Reed, Arlington, Texas, and Jack A. Smith, Valley View, Texas.



The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The PDCAB packet (300) and the RRA packet (308) are transmitted together on the F-SCCH. For example, 9 RRA bits (305) are appended to the PDCAB field (303), in place of the pad bits (205), thereby allowing both the PDCAB (303) and RRA (311) messages to be protected against errors by a 16-bit CRC (307). In accordance with the embodiments, a receiver is able to distinguish between the varying PDCAB (303) and RRA (305) message formats and transmitting the packets (300) and (308) together is a normal mode of operation in the embodiments. Therefore, in accordance with the embodiments, when the PDCAB packet (300) and RRA packet (308) are transmitted together, the network replaces the N PDCAB pad bits, such as pad bits (205), with the first N bits from the RRA bitmap (311), in order to use the nominal CRC length for both packets (300) and (308)." The patent application was filed on June 15, 2007 (11/763624). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,79,622.PN.&OS=PN/83,79,622&RS=PN/83,79,622 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.
