Abstract

Nowadays most of the users carrying a mobile phone do have access to an external device like a personal computer or laptop. Most business people do possess more than one mobile terminal. The mobile terminals like PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) are more than just a phone, but have much more functionalities. Usually, each of the devices works independently to each other. The idea is to enable the user to decide and to allow: • diverting input and output mechanism of the mobile terminal to an external device. • diverting resource (e.g. memory, processing power) thirsty and intensive operations of the mobile terminal to an external device. • more than one mobile terminal to use this possibility. Figure 1 depicts the basic idea of the idea. This basic idea makes only significant for small access range networks like that of Bluetooth.

Variable Reference Voltage Distribution Featuring Accurate Receiver Ground Sensing

Idea: Dr. Kalyan Koora, DE-Bocholt; Rolf Theisen, DE-Bocholt

Nowadays most of the users carrying a mobile phone do have access to an external device like a personal computer or laptop. Most business people do possess more than one mobile terminal. The mobile terminals like PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) are more than just a phone, but have much more functionalities. Usually, each of the devices works independently to each other.

The idea is to enable the user to decide and to allow:
* diverting input and output mechanism of the mobile terminal to an external device.
* diverting resource (e.g. memory, processing power) thirsty and intensive operations of the mobile terminal to an external device.
* more than one mobile terminal to use this possibility.

Figure 1 depicts the basic idea of the idea. This basic idea makes only significant for small access range networks like that of Bluetooth.

The advantages of this concept are seen in:
* to ease the IO operations for an user of the mobile terminals.
* to enable the user to have an overview of different devices/terminals over one device.
* to extend the lifetime of mobile terminal devices like battery lifetime.
* no need of a special central controller or network.
* no need of any IP (Internet Protocol) based connection or Internet access.
* different grade of connections possible, simple grade of connection where only the display output is diverted, complex grade of connection where all the IO (Input/Output) and resource thirsty operations are diverted.

In contrary to the existing remote control concepts, this concept allows to transfer coded data to a remote device, to decode at the remote device and to use the IO peripheries of the remote device. Example: A user is assumed to have 2 mobile terminals, a mobile phone with audio video transmission (T1) and a multimode PDA (T2). T1 is having an infrared interface whereas T2 is having Bluetooth and...
