    A technique is described for reducing the delay of speech packets caused by collisions with other packets on Ethernet. This improvement is achieved by incorporating a contentionfree mechanism during periodic packet transmission. The technique, `Imminent Access Recognition├é┬┐, is easily implemented in hardware as an enhancement to an Ethernet node controller. Simulation models are used to estimate p... View full abstract»

    A new technique for encoding and decoding digital audio signals offers the advantage of a graceful degradation of the audio performance when the signal is conveyed over channels with a wide range of bandwidths. The flexibility of the new technique also provides a key to the future evolution of the quality of digital audio or video systems within the same digital format. The technique described may...

    Real-time control applications pose particular implementation problems caused by the required low latency to external events, the highly concurrent nature of the application software, and the reliability requirements usually associated with control. The implementation of concurrent real-time software is typically done at the machine language level, which is difficult, costly and non-portable. In t... View full abstract»

  • Automatic vector impedance measurement with minimum hardware

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):63 - 66
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (415 KB)

    A computer-based technique for vector impedance measurement is described. An alternating voltage of specified frequency is impressed across a series combination of the unknown impedance Z and a reference resistance R0,; the voltage to ground and the phase angle at the nodal connection are then measured and recorded. Measurements are repeated after interchanging Z and R0, and the magnitude and phas... View full abstract»

  • Radar 1935ߝ45: ten years that changed the face of war

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):67 - 73

    The paper presents a technical view of the historic ten years from 1935 to 1945 during which operational military radar was developed from the first operational CH stations to the miniature APS-4 airborne 'podded' radars which saw operational service at the end of the war. The events leading to the British and German military work are set down, and the principal contributions to wartime radar made... View full abstract»

  • A comparison of decision-feedback equalizers for a 9600 bit/s modem

    When a digital data signal is received over a linear channel that distorts the signal, the resulting intersymbol-interference can be removed, or at least greatly reduced, by means of a decision-feedback equalizer. A conventional equalizer is adjusted adaptively to minimize the mean-square error in the equalized signal, where the error is caused partly by intersymbol interference and partly by nois...
