Multimedia modular card, device for operating the same, and integrated multimedia system

Patent Number: 6,845,421

Patent Information

Abstract
The present invention discloses a multimedia modular card, a device for operating the same, and an integrated multimedia system. The multimedia modular card includes a bus interface removably formed in the device for operating the modular card, for transmitting/receiving data to/from the device, a local controller for controlling the operation of the multimedia modular card, according to an input signal from the bus interface, and a local processor programmed to perform functions corresponding to previously-set multimedia support types, and operated by the local controller. Accordingly, the user can embody a desired multimedia system by selectively mounting the multimedia modular card having a specific function on the system.

PatentStat Scores in Not categorized
These scores show the percentile ranks for each metric.
For example, a score of 90 means that 90% of similar patents had lower scores.

Patent Grant Time

This patent had ► Log In grant time compared to others in this category.

Patent grant time can be influenced by many factors. Activities within the USPTO that are beyond the control of patent attornies can influence grant time, but short grant times can also indicate well-written patents and dedicated efforts to respond rapidly to USPTO office actions with strong arguments. Shorter grant times are preferable, and the scores for this section are inverse measures — higher scores are better.

Patent Claims

This patent has ► Log In claims compared to others in this category.

The number of claims in a patent is correlated with its strength. Because greater claim counts increase the cost of a patent, more claims can indicate the importance an applicant assigns to a patent. Importantly, some may elect to file claims across multiple patents. A higher score in this metric indicates more claims, relative to others in this category.

Citations From Other Patents

This patent has received ► Log In citations from other patents, than others in this category.

Citations from other patents are an important measure of the significance of a patent. More citations indicate that other technologies build on a patent. Higher scores in this metric are better, and indicate more citations from other patents.

Citations to Other Patents

This patent referenced ► Log In citations to other patents, than others in this category.

A lower number of citations to other patents can be a sign of diminished patent strength. More citations indicate dependence on more other technologies. Higher scores in this category are better, and indicate fewer citations to other patents.

Research and Innovation Indicators
These are percentile ranks — they indicate the percentage of peers with lower scores.

Proximity to Basic Research

► Log In

0%

Proximity to Basic Research

This patent has ► Log In proximity to basic research compared to others in this category.

Proximity to basic research is measured by comparing the number of citations to non-patent literature among a cohort of patents. Because most non-patent citations are primary research papers, a higher count indicates greater proximity to basic research.
