Analysis of a Transmission Model - Equipped with n antennas & the remote unit is equipped with m receive antennas (see Figure (1)). At each time slot t, signals C_t^i t=1,2,……n are transmitted simultaneously from the n transmit antennas. The channel is at-fading & the path gain from transmit antenna i to receive antenna j is denoted by h_(i,j) . The path gains are modeled as samples of independent complex Gaussian random variables with variance 0:5 per real dimension, i.e.,h_(i,j)~N(0,1) as we assume that signals received at di_erent antennas experience independent fading....   [tags: antena, transmission, generator matrix] 524 words

Transmission of Schistosomiasis - Transmission of Schistosomiasis - mediated by chemical communication Living organisms use a variety of cues to find their prey, to mate, to move and to hide from their predator. These cues can be visual, auditory or olfactory. Olfactory cues often require a release of chemical from a source towards which an organism could be attracted to or be repelled from. From single celled bacteria to large chordates like sharks use chemical communication for different purposes. However, the most prevalent role of chemical communication is disease transmission....   [tags: Living Organisms, Prey and Predator]

Improvement of Bit Rate Transmission - The word “soliton” is meant to describe the particle like behavior of the optical pulses propagating through a medium . The pulses envelope for soliton not only propagates undistorted but also survives collisions just as particles do. The soliton are very narrow, high intensity optical pulses that retain their shape through the interaction of balancing pulse dispersion with the nonlinear properties of an optical filter. If the relative effect of SPM and GVD are controlled just right, and appropriate pulse shape is chosen, the pulse compression resulting from SPM can exactly offset the pulse broadening effect of GVD....   [tags: solition pulse, optical power, electrical spectrum]

How RFID is Improving Short-Range Communication, - The precedence of RFID is that it does not require direct contact or line-of-sight scanning. An RFID system consists of three components: an antenna and transceiver (often combined into one reader) and a transponder (the tag). The antenna uses radio frequency waves to transmit a signal that activates the transponder. When activated, the tag transmits data back to the antenna. The data is used to notify a programmable logic controller that an action should occur. The action could be as simple as raising an access gate or as complicated as interfacing with a database to carry out a monetary transaction....   [tags: transmission, technology, scan] 3276 words

Description and Contraction of HIV - Description of HIV The outermost part of HIV is a spherical viral lipid envelope taken from a human cell when a newly formed virus buds from a host cell. The most important of the membrane proteins are three docking glycoprotein 120 (gp120) all attached to the virus membrane via the transmembrane glycoprotein 41 (gp41); there are roughly 72 membrane gp120-gp41 ligands in the membrane. Within the viral envelope is a matrix formed from HIV protein 17. Within the matrix is a bullet-shaped capsid made of the viral protein 24....   [tags: virus, enzymes, transmission] 1641 words

If the channel is found idle for more than a DIFS (DCF Inter-Frame Space) period, then a frame can be transmitted otherwise it has to defer. If multiple stations contend for the channel, collisions occur. To avoid such collisions DCF employs random Backoff algorithm. In this each station has to wait for an extra period called random backoff time to access the Channel. The length of backoff period is determined by the following equation Backoff Time= random () * 1 Slot Time....   [tags: contention-based, transmission, reservation-based,] 581 words

Instead of transmitting the message and parity bits, Convolutional codes only transmit parity bits. This allows for a more accurately received message as the errors that would occur in transmission are easily detected, as well as having a smaller chance of occurring....   [tags: technology, parity bits, data transmission]
