    Communication bus, often abbreviated as I2C bus, is a multi-master bi directional 2 wire serial bus for Inter IC communication, developed by Philips Semiconductor. The I2C bus consists of only two lines; one is called SDA (Serial Data line) carries the data bits and the other is called SCL (Serial Clock Line) is used as a clock signal. The messages sent over the I2C bus contain addresses to define which device should reply to them. All I2C-bus compatible devices incorporate an on-chip interface which allows

    smallest component, we get the bit. A bit, or binary digit, is the basic unit that all computers use. A bit can only have two values, usually represented by a 1 or 0, or on or off, or true or false, or yen and yang, you get the point. To make writing code for a computer easier, we decided to group bits into bytes to make things easier. A byte is the smallest unit of information that we store in a memory location.

If you want no subnetting, use these default masks (255 - strictly follow number, 0 - wildcard): Class A: Class B: Class C: Let's use these two addresses for some examples: and If the subnet mask is, the first 24 bits are masked, so the router compares the first 3 octets of the two addresses. Since the masked bits are not the same, the router knows that these

  • Digital Representation In Digital Watermarking

    812 Words  | 2 Pages

    There are two main disadvantages. They are 1) If the encryption is performed on a message size of few bits, the size of the ciphertext may expand and will cause loss of compression efficiency. 2) If the encryption is done on a large message size of few hundreds of bits, to compensate the loss in compression, the payload capacity decreases, where payload capacity is the number of watermark signal bits embedded per encrypted message. So we select a secure symmetric stream cipher with homomorphic property

    fact that digital signals have a higher bit rate. This allows for more bits to be transmitted into the TV (cable, antenna, or satellite). The more bits a TV can transmit, the better the picture or screen resolution. The digital TV signal can carry as many as 19.4 megabits of data, which means a broadcaster can mix multiple programs of varying bit sizes onto a single channel. Say you’re watching a football game, since one camera view only uses up so many bits, you can select a different camera angle
