Indoor wireless LANs deployment

  • Eikelenboom A.
  • Kamerman A.
  • Moelard H.
  • Prasad A.
  • Prasad N.

Wireless local area networks (WLANs) most commonly use the Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) frequency band, at 2.4 GHz. Although there have been a variety of proprietary solutions, the IEEE approved a standard, 802.11, that organizes this technology. Planning the network, which fulfills the requirements of the user in such ...

HIPERLAN (high-performance radio local area network) is a radio-based local area networking (RLAN) solution. It is intended for wireless connectivity between PC, laptops, workstations, servers, printers and other networking equipment for the connection of data networks within a building, providing a more flexible and possibly, a more economic approach to ...

Foveated video image analysis and compression gain measurements

  • Bovik A.
  • Sanghoon Lee

We present a framework for assessing the quality of, and determining the efficiency of foveated and compressed images and video streams. We develop unique algorithms for assessing the quality of foveated image/video data. By interpreting foveation as a coordinate transformation, we analyze the increase in compression efficiency that is afforded ...

Frame erasure concealment using sinusoidal analysis-synthesis and its application to MDCT-based codecs

  • Aguilar G.
  • Juin-Hwey Chen
  • Parikh V.

This paper presents a frame erasure concealment algorithm based on sinusoidal analysis-synthesis and its application to MDCT-based codecs. When a frame is lost, sinusoidal analysis of the previously decoded and buffered signal is performed. The analysis gives a set of sinusoids, which are used to synthesize the waveform corresponding to ...

On fundamental issues in IP over WDM multicast

  • Chunming Qiao
  • Wei J.
  • Xijun Zhang

As WDM technology matures, IP over WDM multicast will become a challenging new topic. Supporting multicast at the WDM layer provides additional advantages, but also raises many new issues that do not exist in IP multicast. For example, the limitation on the light splitting capability of switches is one major ...

Properties of hybrid strip-map/spotlight spaceborne SAR processing

  • Henrion S.
  • Planes J.
  • Savy L.

In this paper, traditional airborne SAR focusing algorithms are extended to the spatial configuration. The ω-k algorithm, chirp scaling algorithm with or without secondary range compression are expressed and developed for the spaceborne case with their limitations. A signal processing algorithm for hybrid strip-map/spotlight spaceborne SARs is also proposed

  • Stark J.
  • Tell B.

Silicon-impurities with an initial Dirac-delta-function- like distribution profile are diffused into GaAs using rapid thermal annealing. The diffusion of atomic Si is determined by a novel method, i.e. by a comparison of experimental capacitance-voltage profiles with corresponding self consistently calculated profiles. Capacitance-voltage profiles broaden from 30angstroms to 137angstroms upon rapid ...
