Rim Semiconductor Develops Amplitude Modulation Decoder

Rim Semiconductor filed a non-provisional patent application on its "RQAM" technology. The company claims its "Cupria" transport processor leverages the RQAM technology to drive data traffic at more than 40 Mbps 5,500 feet (1.67km) on 26AWG (0.40mm) telephone wire. Existing technologies are able to drive data 15 mbps at this distance on this wire type.

The patent, entitled "Amplitude Modulation Decoder," was filed as a non-provisional patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
