    An automotive engine calibration system has been developed to aid in development and evaluation of a control algorithm for electronic spark advance. It consists of the programmer, controller, and measurement units. Given the spark advance and the dwell time in the form of function subroutines written in BASIC, the programmer unit makes the advance and dwell tables as a function of engine speed and...

    Cellular system design using the expansion layout method is described and the background and basis of the approach are covered. Key considerations in layout and cell selection emphasize portable coverage and smooth growth as the system matures. The concept is most useful in large systems but applies to any size which will experience additional cell needs as it grows. The approach is basically one ... View full abstract»

    The characteristics of a frequency shift keying (FSK) signal giving rise to maximum power within a prescribed frequency band are determined. The baseband pulse shape extends over any integer number of bit periods. An integral equation for the optimum pulse shape is derived and some simple properties of the solution are investigated. The equation has been solved for some values of the product of th... View full abstract»

    Urban land-mobile communication systems designed to operate over the upper portion of the UHF band are very susceptible to frequent wide signal variations. Deep fades arise due to the presence of many obstructions in the propagation path between the transmitter and receiver. One way to combat the effects of Rayleigh fading due to multipath propagation is to provide a diversity combiner in the mobi... View full abstract»
