*** TruePosition Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 27 -- TruePosition, Berwyn, Pa., has been assigned a patent (8,340,218) developed by William J. Drennen III, Elverson, Pa., for an "integrated micro-sampling wireless receiver." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Disclosed are methods and systems for filtering an intermediate frequency (IF) band when digitizing a radio frequency (RF) signal using a higher Nyquist zone several times above the sampling rate. Undersampling may be employed along with an undersampled Nyquist filtering technique to implement an integrated receiver for base station applications such as wireless base station beacon monitoring. Such a receiver may be integrated into a smaller package and consume less power at a reduced cost. In one embodiment, the receiver may operate at a high RF sampled frequency that is microsampled in the 10.sup.th Nyquist zone at less than 20% undersampling. In another embodiment, the receiver may operate in the 5.sup.th Nyquist zone at 1/2 the sampling rate with 40% undersampling. In various embodiments, sampling and processing functions may be implemented using software on a computer or other embedded computing device." The patent application was filed on Dec. 30, 2008 (12/345,870).
