In the mid-1990s, however, with the coding-theory world buzzing about turbo codes' cross talk approach, explorations of several research groups independently led them back to Gallager's work.
This device has the highest stressed receiver sensitivity, lowest cross talk, highest gain, and lowest power for 1310-nm/1550-nm 10G-Ethernet and 10G-SONET optical communications.
Constantly evolving mobile communications standards, expansion of microwave links, and satellite-based communications are stimulating the growth of the test equipment markets due to tighter controls on factors influencing cross talk measurements.
Salmonella participate in a remarkable phenomenon: a biological cross talk, a molecular conversation with the host cells.
In addition, the codec IP is designed with sigma-delta technology, which has low sensitivity to interference and cross talk from power supplies and substrates.
Clock Jitter, power supply noise, cross talk, heat, poor PCB routing, impedance mismatches and signal reflections are all well known enemies of multi-gigabit SERDES designs", said Bill Tuthill, Intellitech BERT specialist, "software based functional test is good at finding an open link but seldom has the depth to identify random faults induced by these type of phenomena.
Also highlighted are signal cross talk, simultaneous switching noise and dynamic voltage drop, all of which must be accounted for concurrently with higher operating frequencies and design complexities.
The HT-S990THX offers home theater enthusiasts full-blown THX performance and meets all THX requirements for output, noise, cross talk and distortion.
The patent claims a device that spectroscopically measures tissue at a high resolution while avoiding cross talk, or ambiguity, between measured locations.
More importantly, TWVs enhance optical receiver performance by maintaining a flat gain versus frequency profile, increasing the output return loss and decreasing cross talk and jitter.
