Wireless researcher Dr. Ahmad Bazzi of NYU receives US Patent for enhancing Bluetooth data rates

Dr. Ahmad Bazzi, wireless communication researcher at New York University (NYU) at Abu Dhabi, has been recently granted a new U.S. patent, which has helped attain faster data rates for signals communicating through the BlueTooth protocol, ultimately resulting in improved audio quality and enhanced experiences with headsets.

In this regard, a patent was filed in 2021 and led to U.S. Patent No. 11,496,343. 8 Nov. 2022 where Dr. Ahmad Bazzi had invented a method for decoding an radio frequency signal bearing a sequence of symbols modulated by Continuous Phase Modulation (CPM). This invention is the basis for fast and reliable bluetooth technology especially for audio usage. Bazzi also describes an associated decoder related to the invention. During his service at RivieraWaves, this invention had found high market demand especially from key clients, such as Apple.

This patent underscores a profound innovation in Bluetooth technology, specifically addressing the imperative for elevated data rates and enhanced signal decoding for audio applications.

The full US patent is cited as Ahmad Bazzi and Lisa Meilhac. “Method for decoding an RF signal bearing a sequence of symbols modulated by cpm and associated decoder.” U.S. Patent No. 11,496,343. 8 Nov. 2022. You can connect with Dr. Ahmad Bazzi on Linkedin or Twitter.  Also, Dr. Bazzi publishes free open source educational lectures on wireless and engineering on his YouTube channel.
