Patent Number: 7,356,319

Title: Reduced power consumption

Abstract: A radio frequency receiver for receiving supplementary data transmitted with a radio station signal. The supplementary data includes one or more information word fields containing supplementary data transmitted with the radio station signal. The receiver includes a host processor for processing the supplementary data; a supplementary data demodulator and decoder for demodulating and decoding a received radio signal to generate a stream of bits representing one or more information word fields; an information word type memory for storing one or more information word type fields; detection circuitry arranged to receive and compare the information word type field decoded by the supplementary data decoder with one or more information word type fields stored in the information word type memory, and to provide a matched condition signal in response to a match between one or more decoded information word type fields and one or more of the corresponding stored information word types fields. The receiver is arranged to, in response to the matched condition signal, cause the corresponding supplementary data to be processed by the host processor.
