The proposed demux circuit is a variant of an architecture studied in [8].
Though full tunability scheme provides the best performance in terms of bandwidth utilization, it requires a centralized tunable DeMux at OLT which is an expensive solution [26].
In results published in Advanced Materials, Wang and his colleagues show how by combining an appropriate number of these transistors in various arrangements, systems can be made that can process the basic logic functions of NAND, NOR, and XOR, as well as act as multiplexers (MUX) and demultiplexors (DEMUX).
2.25 [lambda]) and that for a mx1 MUX [lambda.sub.m] = m[lambda]/4 for [lambda]d (= [lambda.sub.d]) for a 1xm DEMUX (i.e.
When receiving data, the OADMs perform the inverse O-E-O conversion to de-multiplex (demux) the DWDM wavelengths into their original data stream.
For example, the average 40 wavelength optical demux has about 120 discrete components that all have to be manually connected.
OCP's optical transponders combine the functionality of an optical transceiver with SONET/SDH electronic multiplexing (MUX) and de-multiplexing (DEMUX) including clock and data recovery (CDR) together in a single package.
For example, in the x-kernel prototype, the interface is the collection of operations supported by the x-kernel's UPI, including message push (), pop (), demux (), and control operations.
A deep analysis of engineers' needs drove the development of the new 5 Series platform, he said, which includes a new ASIC combining ADC, demux, trigger, and digital acquisition components in a single device, enabling more channels and tight integration between analog and digital channels.
In the system, active electrode, DCC, Demux and counter is implemented in the 90nm CMOS technology to evaluate its performance.
