ADPCM: US Patents from 2010 to 2016

Muhanned AL-Rawi


Due to its importance and its wide applications in telecommunication networks, the Adaptive Differential Pulse Code Modulation(ADPCM) was standardized by International Telecommunication Union(ITU). This paper presents and describes briefly the recent US patents on ADPCM starting from 2010 to 2016. Also, the general structure of ADPCM is described. The work in this paper opens the minds of the researchers and encourages them to continue doing research on this field.
