    Hagiwara and Nakagawa (1985, 1986) added a jump detector at the output of an arctangent-type baseband FM demodulator in order to transform this intrinsic narrowband demodulator into a wideband one. It is shown in the present work that the performance of the Hagiwara and Nakagawa wideband FM demodulator can be improved, at low input signal-to-noise ratio, by placing the jump detector before, rather...

    A model to investigate the envelope detection of vestigial sideband TV signals with nonideal carrier reinsertion is presented. For a typical television test waveform, the amplitude and phase distortions at the output of the envelope detector are calculated as a function of the reinserted carrier amplitude and phase. For given specifications in terms of differential gains and differential phase, th... View full abstract»

  • Multinumeric decoder for dot matrix displays

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):37 - 41

    A simple and self-controlled multinumeric decoder-driver for dot matrix displays is proposed. A multinumeric display system using this decoder displays the decimal digit of the BCD (binary coded decimal) input in any one form of eight different languages. The circuitry of the decoder is simple but its capability is versatile. With a little additional hardware, the display system could easily be ex... View full abstract»

    A joint ISO/CCITT committee known as JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) has been working to establish the first international compression standard for continuous-tone still images, both grayscale and color. JPEG's proposed standard aims to be generic, to support a wide variety of applications for continuous-tone images. To meet the differing needs of many applications, the JPEG standard inclu...

    The performance of the CEBus, a proposed computer network standard for the intelligent home, implemented with power line (PL) and twisted pair (TP) media, interconnected through a router, has been investigated. The delay and throughput characteristics of each of the three priority class of messages, i.e. deferred, standard, and high, have been measured. Overall, the PL-Router-TP network system has...

    It is suggested that the technical feasibility of digital HDTV (high-definition television) for terrestrial broadcasting seems to be within reach. However, to launch a successful HDTV broadcasting service, the viewing public will have to be educated and they will have to experience a paradigm shift of what to expect from terrestrial delivery. They will be subjected to, and part of, a revolution. I... View full abstract»

    The authors describe a family of personal active badges developed for location of people and devices in the computer environment. Applications include location and paging of individuals as well as control of computer systems. Active badges are one type of a range of portable computers connected to cordless communication systems that can now be made. Because of their small size and application such... View full abstract»

    Work is described, the purpose of which is to store the data of a teletext page shown on the screen of a TV set in a personal computer and obtain a printed copy of it. The stored data can be processed according to the user's need. The nonstandard serial bus used in this work is the IM (Intermetall) bus. The electrical interface is realized with minimum external components View full abstract»

    Some industry actions in connection with HDTV (high-definition television) standards are suggested. It is believed that the best practical course of action is to encourage vendors to work toward interoperability and extensibility to the maximum extent possible within the framework of their existing developments and on a voluntary basis. It is concluded that the United States is very fortunate in h... View full abstract»

    It is proposed that vector quantization be implemented for image compression based on neural networks. Separate codebooks for edge and background blocks are designed using Kohonen (1984) self-organizing feature maps to preserve edge integrity and improve the efficiency of codebook design. A system architecture is proposed, and satisfactory performance is achieved View full abstract»
