Claim of US Patent No. 10,973,058

1. A gesture detection system comprising:a gesture sensor device comprising:
a random number generator configured to produce a predefined numeric sequence;
a first-in-first-out (FIFO) memory coupled to the random number generator, the FIFO memory being configured to store a first quantity of repetitions of the predefined numeric sequence; and
a first digital interface coupled to the FIFO memory, the first digital interface being configured to transmit the repetitions of the predefined numeric sequence stored in the FIFO memory; and
a verification circuit comprising:
a second digital interface coupled to the first digital interface of the gesture sensor device, the second digital interface configured to receive the repetitions of the predefined numeric sequence;
a second memory configured to store the repetitions of the predefined numeric sequence received by the second digital interface;
non-volatile storage configured to store a copy of the predefined numeric sequence;
a digital signal processor configured to correlate the copy of the predefined numeric sequence stored in the second memory with the repetitions of the predefined numeric sequence stored in the non-volatile storage; and
a general purpose processor configured to adjust a parameter of the second digital interface in response to the copy of the predefined numeric sequence correlating with the repetitions of the predefined numeric sequence a second quantity of times, the second quantity being less than the first quantity.
