A non-electrically-resonant antenna is when the antenna is used at its optimum "natural" frequency. Example: a half-wave dipole where the incoming signal wavelength corresponds to twice the antenna length. In these circumstances, the dipole appears as a resistance fairly close to 74 ohms and, either side of its "natural" resonant ...

Accurate definitions with due attention to wording will help us to clarify your issue: Throughput is the amount of data received by the destination. The average throughput is the throughput per unit of time The bandwidth is the parameter of signals transmitted over a communication link, specifically, it is a "bandwidth in frequency domain". When ...

I mentioned SMBus in the comments, which is a variation of I2C. As far as I can tell, the only part of this that you need over a standard I2C protocol is the portion known as the ARP - Address Resolution Protocol. This part basically allows for address conflicts to be resolved automatically by dynamically reassigning a device to some other address if a ...

Can you give me some idea about the Science behind this? Why does it cost more to produce higher Bit-Depth Monitors? Isn't it Like, RGB pixels on the Displays are Emitting Photons? Then how Does different Displays differ in terms of Emitting Photons? One of the things no one else has mentioned so far is the effect of gamma. You mentioned that you use 32 ...

Yes, true, but it also goes better than 12-bpc 4K 60Hz. It supports anything that goes up to 48 Gbps, and beyond that if DSC compression is used, the compressed stream is 48 Gbps so there is even more uncompressed bandwidth. Certainly sounds possible. Many devices should support 16 bpc Deep Color just as easily as 12 or 10 bpc. And yes, there are displays ...

The short answer is, cost. Higher bit-depths require more bandwidth at every point in the digital signal chain, from rendering unit, DRAM, link, all the way to the DACs that drive the panel. Technology being what it is, as pipeline costs have come down, deeper color standards have been introduced, so panels have evolved along with the rest of the display ...

I would run the DALI circuit on a grounded DC supply, the grounding gives you protection in the event of a failure of the basic isolation. and makes it safe and easy to probe voltages and signals. This may require fuses to prevent large fault currents from entering the DALI bus Once you get the grounded system working you may want to consider changing it to ...

It should work, Parallel hard drives went to tens of millions of symbols per second on 0.05" pitch ribbon cables at about that scale. they were using interspersed ground and signal wires to reduce cross-talk.

Since crosstalk is not correlated to the signal you want to receive, it's kind of like noise (or more precisely, interference). So, yeah, that can be part of CSI (but not in the "channel impulse response" sense, but in the "also, SINR" sense). That SINR estimate might be important for rate adaption and power allocation schemes (e.g. in ...

If you have a WiFi Access Point (aka WiFi router) on your local LAN then you can connect your ESP8266 to that WiFi network and then its reachable from your PC via a IP address. The IP address is in most cases automatically configured. There is also support for "Multicast DNS" and if you use that there is no need to remember IP addresses, just use ...

Indeed, optical comunication can transmit analog information. In fact, this is used quite a lot in, for example, Radio over fiber. Even in raw optical comunication, multi-level signaling such as PAM4, and more complex modulation such as IQ signaling is used. How is this done? Well, you hinted at one method: modulate the light source. You give the example of ...

LEDs can certainly be run at any light output level, and that level controlled very quickly to modulate it. However, the problem, like with any analogue system, is gain, noise and linearity. Optical systems are non-linear, and have uncertain gain in the extreme. LEDs are somewhat non-linear in current to light conversion, and are temperature dependent. ...

As an addendum to @MarcusM├╝ller answer: Unfortunately it seems that you can't implement this in an FPGA that is available in QFN housing. If you could reduce the number of inputs to 108, then it would work out: The device of (my) choice is a MachXO2-7000HC, which is the largest Lattice FPGA available in QFN. The good thing is this FPGA doesn't need external ...

Good listing of options, I'll go with the one you ruled out early (sorry about that): A CPLD or FPGA is the tool of choice here, for several reasons: It offers all the muxing capabilities you need One component does all will be a lot easier to assemble Typically, you can program IO levels. While 5V is a bit high typically, you could voltage-divide that (...

The thing at the focus point of your satellite TV dish is called LNB; you might want to look up what that abbreviation stands for ;) In short, amplified, pre-filtered and mixed.
