Calculate p(0) such that p(y) is normalised.

A PCM transmitter sends out a 12-bit serial digital signal with 5 V corresponding to a 1 and 0 V corresponding to a 0. The signal passes over a transmission link, affected by random noise, to a PCM receiver consisting of a low-pass filter and a comparator. The comparator input signal is the PCM signal with noise superimposed on it; the probability density p(y) of this noise is the triangular function shown in Figure Prob. 2. The comparator decides that a 1 has been transmitted if the comparator input signal is greater than 2.5 V, and that a 0 has been transmitted if the comparator input signal is less than or equal to 2.5 V.

estimate the probable number of errors if 1600 bits of information are transmitted.

Ten measurement signals are input to a multiplexer so that each one is sampled twice per second. The multiplexed signal is input to a serial digital transmitter incorporating a 10-bit ADC. The resulting PCM signal is converted into FSK such that 720 Hz corresponds to a 1 and 480 Hz corresponds to a 0. Estimate the bandwidth required by the FSK signal.

(a) Random noise is characterised by a Gaussian probability density function of standard deviation  V and mean value  Using the probability values given below, calculate the probability that the noise voltage:

(i) exceeds +0.5 V

(ii) lies between −1.0 and +1.0 V

(iii) is less than −1.5 V.

(b) Information in binary form is sent with a 0 represented by 0 V and a 1 represented by 5….

use this to simplify complex fractions.

For some practice working with complex numbers: Calculate (3-4i)+(2+5i) = , (3-4i)-(2+5i) = , (3-4i)(2+5i) = . The complex conjugate of (1+i) is (1-i). In general to obtain the complex conjugate reverse the sign of the imaginary part. (Geometrically this corresponds to finding the “mirror image” point in the complex plane by reflecting through the x-axis. The complex conjugate of a complex number z is written with a bar over it: z?? and read as “z bar”. Notice that if z=a+ib, then (z)(z??)=|z|2=a2+b2 which is also the square of the distance of the point z from the origin. (Plot z as a point in the “complex” plane in order to see this.) If z=3-4i then z?? = and |z| = . You can use this to simplify complex….

determine the maximum yield? T

When an apple orchard owner plants 65 trees on an acre of ground, he gets an average yield of 1500 apples per tree per year. For each additional tree planted per acre, the annual yield per tree drops by 20 apples. Use this information to answer the next two questions. 54. Let x represent the number of additional trees above 65. Determine a formula for the number of trees (T) and the number of apples per tree (A). (A) and and T = 65x T = 65 + x T = 65x T = 65 + x T = 65 + x (C) (D) (E) and A = 1500 – x A= 1500 x A = 1500 – 20x A = 1500 – x A = 1500 –….
