Title (EN) DYNAMIC NOISE MITIGATION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D’ATTÉNUATION DE BRUIT DYNAMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure provides methods and systems for mitigating signal noise. In implementations, the systems and methods perform operations including continuously determining an instantaneous power of a signal path. The operations also include determining a dynamic noise threshold by sampling the instantaneous power at different times and selecting a minimum of the instantaneous power sampled during the different times. The operations further include determining that the instantaneous power is less than the dynamic noise threshold. Additionally, the operations include blocking communication from the signal path. Further, the operations include iteratively updating the dynamic noise threshold.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour atténuer un bruit de signal. Dans des mises en œuvre, les systèmes et procédés réalisent des opérations comprenant la détermination continue d’une puissance instantanée d’un chemin de signal. Les opérations consistent également à déterminer un seuil de bruit dynamique par échantillonnage de la puissance instantanée à différents instants et sélection d’un minimum de la puissance instantanée échantillonnée pendant les différents instants. Les opérations consistent en outre à déterminer que la puissance instantanée est inférieure au seuil de bruit dynamique. En outre, les opérations consistent à bloquer la communication à partir du chemin de signal. En outre, les opérations consistent à mettre à jour de manière itérative le seuil de bruit dynamique.
