May 29, 2014



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Politics & Government Week -- From Washington, D.C., VerticalNews journalists report that a patent application by the inventors Heiman, Arie (Sde Warburg, IL); Yehuday, Uri (Tel Aviv, IL); Roeimi, Roei (Hagor, IL), filed on November 7, 2013, was made available online on May 15, 2014.

The patent's assignee is DSP Group.

News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Existing methods and systems for managing audio input and output components (e.g., speakers and microphones) in electronic devices may be inefficient and/or costly. Further limitations and disadvantages of conventional and traditional approaches will become apparent to one of skill in the art, through comparison of such approaches with some aspects of the present method and apparatus set forth in the remainder of this disclosure with reference to the drawings."

As a supplement to the background information on this patent application, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "A system and/or method is provided for an adaptive system for managing a plurality of microphones and speakers, substantially as shown in and/or described in connection with at least one of the figures, as set forth more completely in the claims.

"These and other advantages, aspects and novel features of the present disclosure, as well as details of illustrated implementation(s) thereof, will be more fully understood from the following description and drawings.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

"FIG. 1 illustrates an example electronic device with a plurality of microphones and speakers.

"FIG. 2 illustrates architecture of an example electronic device with a plurality of microphones and speakers.

"FIG. 3 illustrates architecture of an example electronic device with a plurality of microphones and speakers, which is modified to enable use of speakers as audio input components.

"FIG. 4 illustrates architecture of an example electronic device with a plurality of microphones and speakers, which is modified in an alternate manner to enable use of speakers as audio input components.

"FIG. 5 illustrates an example of pre-processing for converting signals obtained from a speaker to match signals from a standard microphone, for use in conjunction with standard audio signals obtained via a microphone.

"FIG. 6 is a flowchart illustrating an example process for managing multiple microphones and speakers in an electronic device.

"FIG. 7 is a flowchart illustrating an example process for generating audio input using a vibration captured via a speaker."
