The select unit selects one of the output of the delayed sliced signal and the output of the decoder to be an output signal according to a second control signal. The control unit determines whether to enable the control signal and the second control signal according to the state of the sliced signal and the output signal.||04-08-2010|
|20100054258||SWITCH, OPERATION METHOD THEREOF AND METHOD FOR UPDATING FORWARDING TABLE - A switch, an operation method thereof, and a method for updating a forwarding table thereof are provided. The method for updating the forwarding table includes receiving a packet, and determining whether the packet is one of a Join type packet and a Leave type packet for determining to adopt a first VLAN table or a second VLAN table. In the first VLAN table, a first apparatus and a second apparatus are defined in different VLANs, and in the second VLAN table, the first apparatus and the second apparatus are defined in a same VLAN. When it is determined that the packet is one of the Join type packet and the Leave type packet, the second VLAN table is adopted for updating the forwarding table for simplifying the content of the forwarding table. Further, an efficiency of the switch can be improved by using the updated forwarding table.||03-04-2010|
|20100048137||ECHO CANCELLER AND ECHO CANCELLATION METHOD - An echo canceller and an echo cancellation method are provided. In the echo cancellation method, a transmitting data sequence is received, and M taps are provided accordingly. In addition, the M taps are received, and N taps are output according to an echo distribution information, in which the M and N are natural numbers, and M>N.

The transceiver device includes a transmitter, a receiver, and a control module. The control module is coupled to the transmitter and the receiver. After the control module lowers the output power of either the transmitter, the receiver, or both of them, the control module checks a signal transmission between the transceiver device and a far-end device is normal or not. When the signal transmission between the transceiver device and the far-end device is abnormal, the control module readjusts the output power of the transmitter, the receiver, or both of them. Thereby, the power consumption of the transceiver device is decreased.||02-04-2010|

|20090013117||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR GENERATING INTERRUPT - A system and a method for generating an interrupt are provided. In the interrupt generating method, a time-out mechanism is executed by a second network component of a computer system after a packet processing action is finished. An interrupt is generated by the second network component only if a first network component of the computer system does not execute a polling action during a predefined period after the time-out mechanism is processed. Thus, it is not necessary to generate the interrupt every time after processing a network packet, so that less interrupts are generated and accordingly the loading of the computer system is reduced. Moreover, the reaction time of the computer system is kept to ensure the efficiency of the computer system.||01-08-2009|
