Explains bounded input, bounded output stability.


BIBO stability stands for bounded input, bounded output stability. BIBO stablity is the system property that any bounded input yields a bounded output.This is to say that as long as we input a signal with absolute value less than some constant, we are guaranteed to have an output with absolute value less than some other constant.

Discrete time bibo stability

In order to understand this concept, we must first look more closely into exactly what we mean by bounded. A bounded signalis any signal such that there exists a value such that the absolute value of the signal is never greater than some value.Since this value is arbitrary, what we mean is that at no point can the signal tend to infinity, including the end behavior.

A bounded signal is a signal for which there exists a constant A such that n f n A

Time domain conditions

Now that we have identified what it means for a signal to be bounded, we must turn our attention to the condition a systemmust possess in order to guarantee that if any bounded signal is passed through the system, a bounded signal will arise on theoutput. It turns out that a continuous-time LTI system with impulse response h n is BIBO stable if and only if it is absolutely summable . That is

Z-domain conditions

Stability for discrete-time signals in the z-domain is about as easy to demonstrate as it is for continuous-time signals in theLaplace domain. However, instead of the region of convergence needing to contain the j ω -axis, the ROC must contain the unit circle. Consequently, for stable causal systems, all poles must be within the unit circle.

Bibo stability summary

Bounded input bounded output stability, also known as BIBO stability, is an important and generally desirable system characteristic. A system is BIBO stable if every bounded input signal results in a bounded output signal, where boundedness is the property that the absolute value of a signal does not exceed some finite constant. In terms of time domain features, a discrete time system is BIBO stable if and only if its impulse response is absolutely summable. Equivalently, in terms of z-domain features, a continuous time system is BIBO stable if and only if the region of convergence of the transfer function includes the unit circle.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
