Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 329: Demodulators

A demodulator is a device which extracts an arbitrarily varying information carrying signal from a signal formed by varying a characteristic of a repetitious electrical or electromagnetic wave of less than infrared frequency in accordance with this information carrying signal. Classification herein is broadly by the type of modulation exhibited by the input signal. Combinations with basic subject matter included in this class: a demodulator combined with perfecting structure or incorporated in other structure.

Subclass 310: Including logic element (e.g., logic gate or flip-flop)

Class 375: Pulse Or Digital Communications

This is the generic class for pulse or digital communication systems using electrical or electromagnetic signals. Such communication includes transmitting an intelligence bearing signal from one point to another in the form of discrete variations in some parameter of the electrical or electromagnetic signal.

Subclass 316: RECEIVERS
Subclass 328: Including switching or gating (digital circuits)
Subclass 346: Interference or noise reduction

Class 607: Surgery: Light,Thermal, And Electrical Application

Class 381: Electrical Audio Signal Processing Systems And Devices

This class provides for: (a) wired one-way electrical transmission or processing systems for audio signals, (b) Stereophonic systems, which are not elsewhere classified, (c) instrument or process for converting an electrical audio information signal to or from humanly audible form.

Subclass 22: Variable decoder
Subclass 370: Headphone
Subclass 71.11: Adaptive filter topology
Subclass 71.8: Counterwave generation control path
Subclass 94.2: Spectral adjustment
Subclass 94.3: In multiple frequency bands
Subclass 94.4: Interpolation
Subclass 94.7: Using signal channel and noise channel

Class 704: Data Processing:Speech Signal Processing, Linguistics, Language Translation, And Audio Compression/Decompression

This is the generic class for apparatus and corresponding methods for constructing, analyzing, and modifying units of human language by data processing, in which there is a significant change in the data.This class also provides for systems or methods that process speech signals for storage, transmission, recognition, or synthesis of speech; and for systems or methods for bandwidth compression or expansion of an audio signal, or for time compression or expansion of an audio signal. There are three main divisions: linguistics; speech signal processing; and audio compression.

Subclass 201: For storage or transmission

Subclass 245: Clustering
Subclass 248: Endpoint detection
Subclass 253: Endpoint detection
Subclass 266: Specialized model
Subclass 268: Frequency element
Subclass E15.039: Speech recognition techniques for robustness in adverse environments, e.g., in noise, of stress induced speech, etc. (EPO)

Class 379: Telephonic Communications

(1) Systems, processes and instruments for the two-way electrical transmission of intelligible audio information having arbitrary content over a link including an electrical conductor, between spaced apart locations, so as to enable conversation therebetween, and intended for the private use of a listener or a group of listeners. The term "intelligible" used above is intended to include the capability for transmission of speech or the like (e.g., music), rather than restriction to a specified audible signal, such as a bell or buzzer. (2) Switching, signalling or signal transmission peculiar to, or specified as for a telephone or a telephone system, except for multiplex communications as indicated in Lines With Other Classes.

Subclass 88.01: Voice activation or recognition

Class 455: Telecommunications

This is the generic class for modulated carrier wave communications not elsewhere classifiable.

Subclass 63.1: Distortion, noise, or other interference prevention, reduction, or compensation
Subclass 67.11: Having measuring, testing, or monitoring of system or part
Subclass 570: Noise suppression or echo cancellation

Class 370: Multiplex Communications

This is the generic class for multiplexing or duplexing systems, methods, or apparatus.
