PHYSICAL LAYER Limitations to Data Communication rates. Fourier Transform (finite energy time signals) . Important properties: Linear system: Y(f) = X(f)H(f) Scale change: Modulation property:
Image of page 2
The Sampling Theorem : 1. Sampling a bandlimited (W) waveform - (Sampling rate at least 2W samples/sec.) Reconstruction from samples: 2. Sending pulses through a bandlimited communication channel: response H(f) . If H(f) = 0 for * f *$ W, up to a maximum 2W pulses per second (bauds) can be sent through the channel.

CHANNEL IMPAIRMENTS, LIMITATIONS Distortion, noise, attenuation, interference, limited bandwidth LINEAR DISTORTION: H(f) = A(f)e J è (f) Combat with equalizer filter E(f), so E(f)H(f) has ideal filter characte ristic. NONLINEAR DISTORTION: nonlinearity creates new difference frequencies, (intermodulation distortion). NOISE: Random disturbances, usually additive Thermal noise Burst-type noises

THERMAL NOISE Proportional to absolute temperature and proportional to bandwidth SPECTRAL DENSITY CONCEPT: S(f) measures how power of a random noise or signal is distributed in frequency. Thermal noise has a constant spectral 0 density, N /2. Maximum data rate of a channel - Shannon formula - assume thermal noise. 0 The noise power in a band of H herz is N H . S is the signal power.

ATTENUATION is bad because: 1. Weakened signal reduces information capacity. 2. Attenuation greater at higher frequencies. In relaying a digital signal, it is better to regenerate it than to just amplify it.

GUIDED TRANSMISSION MEDIA Twisted pair, Coaxial cable, Optical fiber Guided media attenuation - in dB per kilometer V is voltage, P is power.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
