Baseband communication is the simplest form of analog communication.

We use analog communication techniques for analog message signals, like music, speech, and television. Transmission andreception of analog signals using analog results in an inherently noisy received signal (assuming the channel addsnoise, which it almost certainly does).

The simplest form of analog communication is baseband communication .

We use analog communication techniques for analog message signals, like music, speech, andtelevision. Transmission and reception of analog signals using analog results in an inherently noisy received signal(assuming the channel adds noise, which it almost certainly does).
Here, the transmitted signal equals the message times a transmitter gain.

An example, which is somewhat out of date, is the wireline telephone system. You don't use baseband communication inwireless systems simply because low-frequency signals do not radiate well. The receiver in a baseband system can't do muchmore than filter the received signal to remove out-of-band noise (interference is small in wireline channels). Assuming thesignal occupies a bandwidth of W Hz (the signal's spectrum extends from zero to W ), the receiver applies a lowpass filter having the same bandwidth, as shown in [link] .

The receiver for baseband communication systems is quite simple: a lowpass filter having the same bandwidth as thesignal.

We use the signal-to-noise ratio of the receiver's output m ^ t to evaluate any analog-message communication system. Assume that the channel introduces an attenuation α and white noise of spectral height N 0 2 . The filter does not affect the signal component—we assume its gain is unity—but does filter the noise,removing frequency components above W Hz. In the filter's output, the received signal power equals α 2 G 2 power m and the noise power N 0 W , which gives a signal-to-noise ratio of

SNR baseband α 2 G 2 power m N 0 W
The signal power power m will be proportional to the bandwidth W ; thus, in baseband communication the signal-to-noise ratio variesonly with transmitter gain and channel attenuation and noise level.

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.

is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
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.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
