RC low-pass B. Bessel C. LC notch Blooms: 2. Which of the following filter is very small and inexpensive and widely used in communication transmitters and receivers? Bessel B. Butterworth C. The primary advantage of SCFs is that they provide a way to make tuned or selective circuits in an IC without the use of discrete inductors, capacitors, or resistors.

Blooms: 2. One characteristic of the commutating filter is that it is sensitive to the harmonics of the center frequency for which it is designed. Blooms: 1. A non-sine wave approach used to determine the characteristics and performance of any communication circuit or system is Fourier analysis.

Bit rate Separate binary data sources may modulate subcarriers on different frequencies. The subcarriers are summed, and the resulting composite transmitted as an FDM signal.

Chapter 11 Answers to Questions 1. The telegraph. Morse code. You cannot distinguish between uppercase and lowercase letters with Morse code. Baudot code. To ring a bell, transmit the BEL code Serial and parallel. Start and stop bits. Baud rate. A symbol is any change in the transmitted signal during a bit interval such as amplitude, frequency, or phase.

Each symbol can represent two or more bit combinations. Synchronous transmission is faster because start and stop bits are not used on each transmitted byte; the total number of bits to be transmitted in a given time is thus less. The message words are sent serially in a fixed format of a specific number of words in a block.

A preamble precedes the block, and a postamble error code ends the transmission.

Space 0 and mark 1. Two or more successive binary 0 or 1s. Bipolar RZ and Manchester. No average DC buildup on the transmission line. Manchester, biphase. High speeds are obtained by using a small modulation index and prefiltering the binary signal. Number of coding levels and the transmission speed baud. Higher bps data rate. UART, scrambler, modulator, equalizer, line interface, adaptive receive equalizer, demodulator, descrambler, microcontroller. Modems are needed to convert digital signals to analog signals and vice versa to make them compatible with the standard voice-grade telephone system.

Modems are used with any computer that must communicate with another computer over long distances using the telephone system. A scrambler ensures that long strings of binary 0s or 1s are broken up into replacement codes with few successive 0 or 1 bits. A carrier recovery circuit, usually a phase-locked loop. Differential BPSK. XNOR gate and a 1-bit delay flip-flop. AM and PSK. Trellis code modulation is a form of QAM, used at data rates of bps or above, that incorporates a coding scheme that makes error detection and correction faster and easier.

It is used because at faster data rates over the telephone system the bit error rate is much higher than at rates less than bps. The process of modifying an intelligence signal in such a way that its spectrum is spread over a wide frequency range rather than being confined to a narrow singlechannel bandwidth. Frequency-hopping and direct-sequence SS. A frequency synthesizer. A pseudorandom sequence generator.

XOR gate. Longitudinal redundancy check. A block of data is treated as if it were one very large binary number. It is divided by a smaller binary number called the generating function.

The resulting quotient is abandoned, and the remainder is retained. The remainder is the CRC. A shift register with feedback through XOR gates. A CRC is generated at the receiver using the received data block. It is then compared to the received CRC. If the two match, the data is correct. The sum is zero , indicating no errors in a bit position. Trellis, Viterbi, turbo recursive codes. The last field in a protocol frame is usually a block check sequence or CRC for error detection.

A CRC word. Interoperability refers to the ability of one type of equipment to operate compatibly and communicate with the equipment of another manufacturer. Use protocols based on the OSI layers. Applications, presentation, session, transport, network, data link, physical. Physical, data link, network, and applications. A temperature sensor such as a thermistor or resistive temperature device RTD monitors the temperature. This signal is serialized and packaged into a protocol packet by a microprocessor.

It is then sent to modulate a low-power radio transmitter with antenna. The receiving antenna picks up the signal and recovers the original digital signal, which is then put back into parallel form and sent to an interface on the computer. A program in the computer reads the data from the interface and stores it in memory. The program takes the data word and processes it so that it is displayed as the correct temperature on the video screen of the computer.

Cellular telephone. Many phones could share a common band simultaneously. The conversations would be secure and private. Remote controls for TV sets, garage doors, and car doors, radio-controlled airplanes or cars—all via AC power lines.

Spread spectrum and OFDM are spectrally efficient because the disperse the very high data rate signals over a broad spectrum that is typically less spectrum than other methods use for the same data rate.

A SAN is a storage area network, a system made up of a redundant array of independent disks RAID or just a bunch of disks JBOD forming a storage facility for company or organization that can be accessed by servers and users via a high speed network. Wireless is the normal medium used in a PAN.

The main advantage of a mesh network is its reliability because of one node in the network is disabled or out of range an alternate path can be formed or taken to ensure communications. Coaxial cable is self-shielding and thus less subject to noise pickup. AWG 22, 24, Network interface card. A transceiver or repeater. This reduces the load on the bus and collisions, thereby greatly improving transmission speed. A hub is a centralized connection point for attaching individual PCs to the network bus.

PoE means power over Ethernet. This is a variation of the Ethernet standard that permits DC power to be distributed over the twisted pair cable that carries the high speed data. Star in the newer systems. It is used because clock recovery is easy. Twisted pair and fiber optic cable. Ethernet nodes complete contend for the bus. If one node transmits, no others can transmit until the first transmission is complete. If two stations try to transmit at the same time, a collision occurs and both stations stop sending.

They wait a random time and start. The one waiting the shorter time captures the bus first. Layers 1 and 2. Maximum range fiber optic cable 1 Gbps: Backbones connecting large LANs or small metro area networks.

Makes clock recovery easier and permits implementation of error detection and correction. Passive optical networks PON. Unshielded twisted pair UTP. A back plane is a printed circuit board that interconnects connectors into which other boards are plugged. A router is an example. Four parallel lanes of 10 Gbps paths are combined to produce 40 Gbps.

Ten 10 Gbps lanes are combined to produce a Gbps path. The line rate of a high speed path is different from the actual raw data rate because of the extra overhead bits of forward error correction codes added for reliability. Carrier Ethernet software. A data center is a facility with multiple servers, switches, and routers that form networks and facilitate network communications.

Factory automation, in which multiple computers controlling robots, machine tools, computer vision systems, and other equipment are usually networked. Number of nodes on the network, the amount of traffic or activity on the LAN, and the access method used.

It takes longer to transmit the two extra bits and that slows the over transmission. Yes, a single fiber can support 40 Gbps or Gbps over shorter distances using NRZ or over longer distances using multiplexing or modulation methods.

Velocity factor is the ratio of the speed of a signal in a transmission line to the speed of light radio waves in free space. Since the speed of a signal in a transmission line is less than that in free space, the electrical wavelength of a transmission line is less than a wavelength or fraction thereof in free space.

The cutoff frequency decreases with length. Constant value of voltage and current.

All the power transmitted down the line from the generator is not absorbed by the load; therefore, some of the unabsorbed power is reflected back up the line toward the generator. The transmitted power at the antenna is less than that applied to the transmission line by the transmitter because of cable attenuation as well as the loss of power due to reflection of power. Open and shorted at the end.

A single point at the center of the chart. An open quarter wave or shorted half-wavelength line acts like a series tuned or resonant LC circuit. A short quarter-wave or open half-wave line acts like a parallel resonant LC circuit. Upper UHF and microwave.

Microstrip is a copper line on the insulating surface of a dielectric backed up by a ground plane on the other side of the insulating surface. Stripline is a copper conductor inside an insulating dielectric sandwiched between two.

Stripline is preferred because it does not radiate, but it is harder to make. Refer to text Fig. Therefore, a MHz square wave, which is made up of a MHz fundamental sine wave and all odd harmonics, will be attenuated and distorted. The third, fifth, seventh, and higher harmonics will be greatly attenuated. The output of the coaxial. Some of the harmonic energy will still be present but in lower levels, so that the output wave will bear some resemblance to a square wave but will be highly filtered until it is almost a sine wave.

A shorted half wavelength of transmission line acts like a series resonant circuit. Connecting this transmission line across the receiver front end will cause it to short out the interfering frequency of One half wave at Chapter 14 Answers to Questions 1. A radio wave is the combination of electric and magnetic fields varying at the signal frequency.

These equations state that an electric field varying over time sets up a magnetic field which, in turn, sets up an electric field, both of which are propagated in space without energy loss.

The electric and magnetic fields set up by the antenna are at right angles to one another, and both are at a right angle to the direction of propagation. The orientation of the electric field determines the polarization—vertical, horizontal, or circular. Antenna reciprocity means that an antenna will receive as well as transmit at the operating frequency. Hertz or dipole. One-half wavelength. A transmission line connects the antenna to the receiver or transmitter. The most common transmission line is coaxial cable.

Height of the antenna above ground and length. Antenna bandwidth is a function of antenna conductor size; the larger the conductor the lower the Q and the wider the bandwidth. Signal strength in relative power or decibels over a given azimuth. Antenna gain is the apparent signal strength increase over an isotropic antenna or dipole caused by the directivity of the antenna that comes from concentrating or focusing the signal into narrow beams.

An isotropic radiator is an imaginary point source of electromagnetic energy that radiates equally in all directions. Antenna gain is expressed as a power ratio or in decibels referenced to an isotropic source or a dipole.

An antenna tuner consists of one or more variable capacitors and inductors that may be connected in a variety of configurations to match transmitter to the load, reduce SWR, and increase transmitted power. Tune for low SWR and maximum output power.

Radio signals are reflected by any conductive surface. The better the conductor, the greater the amount of reflection and the lesser the amount of signal absorbed by the reflecting surface. Theoretically no, but in the real world vertically polarized waves will induce a small signal into a horizontal antenna.

Circular polarization is the orientation of a radio wave so that its electric and magnetic fields continuously rotate in a circle. Yes, but reception will not be optimum. Refraction is the bending of radio waves caused by the waves passing from the atmosphere into differently charged layers of the ionosphere.

Multiple-skip transmission; the wave refracted back to earth is reflected by the earth back to the ionosphere and again refracted back to earth for another reflection, and so on. The angle of entry into the ionosphere and the frequency of the wave. A space or direct wave. Use a repeater or a chain of retransmitting repeaters. A repeater is usually located at a high point to permit maximum receiving and transmitting distances.

It consists of a receiver that picks up signals on one frequency, demodulates them, and remodulates a high-power transmitter on another frequency for retransmission. Multipath signal reflections. Rayleigh fading. It requires multiple sets of transceivers and multiple frequencies.

Spatial diversity uses two or more antennas spaced as far apart as practical so that each receives a slightly different version of the signal. The best signal is selected or the signals are combined.

Greater spectrum space for more services, signals, or stations, and wider bandwidth for video, data, or other information signals requiring a larger spectrum. Main disadvantages are shorter ranges and more complex and costly components. Standard components do not work well, if at all; standard semiconductors do not work; it is difficult to implement resonant circuits and filters with standard parts; conventional analysis and design practices do not apply; different and more difficult and expensive measurement techniques and equipment are needed; line-of-sight transmission distances limit transmission range; and signals are more easily ref lected and absorbed by objects and atmospheric phenomena.

The size of the target should be at least one-quarter wavelength or greater for a good reflection. The larger the size in wavelength, the greater the reflection. Use multiple W power amplifiers driven by the same source and combine their outputs in a power combiner to a common load, thus producing a 1-kW signal. As the spacecraft gets farther away, its signal strength will decrease. One way to maintain or possibly increase signal strength is to build a larger antenna. Typical antennas used in space probe monitoring are very large diameters of 64 m or about ft.

Such antennas thus. Keep in mind that as the size and gain of the antenna increase, the beamwidth gets smaller and smaller, making it ever more difficult to aim the antenna at the location of the spacecraft.

Further, any improvement in signal-to-noise ratio will also help. Using a lower-noise front-end amplifier or cooling the. The physics of shorter wavelengths results in short transmission ranges. Consider the Friis formula where wavelength is a key factor in computing distance. CMOS integrated circuits. Posigrade orbit.

A satellite is a radio relay station that receives a signal and retransmits it. Space-based relay stations like satellites are used because greater communications distances can be achieved at lower cost than by the use of multiple earth-based stations. The earth or ground station.

The transponder consists of a low-noise amplifier that picks up the weak signal from the ground station and sends it to a mixer, where it is mixed with a local oscillator signal.

To achieve a higher data rate in the same bandwidth.

The P code is also a pseudorandom code and has a rate of The Y code is an encrypted version of the P code that prevents unauthorized use of certain precision features of GPS.

Almost any standard antenna may be used for satellite uplink or downlink, including dipoles, ground planes, and Yagis. Since the satellite will be moving continuously with respect to the position of the ground stations, the antennas must be positioned so that their pattern is within range of the satellite. The downside to this is that omnidirectional antennas have no gain. If satellite power is sufficient and receiver gain and signal-to-noise ratio are satisfactory, this approach will work fine.

If gain antennas are to be used, the beamwidth should be broad so that the satellite is within. If high gain is required, the beamwidth will be very narrow, and some type of automatic tracking and pointing mechanism must be used on the antenna to keep it pointing at the satellite. Highly directional antennas with gain are preferred, to ensure reliable communications, but they cost more and are more complex because of the automatic tracking equipment.

The communications link will be broken one per orbit, when the satellite goes on the opposite side of the earth, at which time a blackout will exist for approximately one satellite period. Use a map marked with latitude and longitude. Use spread spectrum. LEO satellites are closer to earth so less power is needed in the handsets but more satellites are needed for full continuous coverage, making initial costs high.

In MEO systems, fewer satellites are needed but for higher power more expensive handsets are needed. GEO satellite cell phones are impractical as the distance is too great, making handsets too large and expensive. The pseudo random code PRC transmitted by each satellite is unique and is used by the receiver to identify each satellite.

A hybrid is a transformer-like device that allows two signals to share a common pair of wires so that they may send and receive at the same time. A hybrid may also be an electronic circuit that accomplishes the same result.

Standard telephones use a carbon microphone which consists of carbon granules inside a chamber covered by a diaphragm. When voice waves strike the diaphragm, it vibrates and thus compresses and decompresses the carbon granules, causing their overall resistance to vary. The resistance variations are converted to voltage by connecting a voltage source to the carbon element. Tip and ring are the two connections to and from the twisted-pair line.
