- Accessing and exchanging network residing data.
- Take a look at this web page on ATM applications which takes a close look at the mystique surrounding ATM.
- Managing traffic efficiently - the ATM way.
- Keeping backup batteries healthy. As we are all aware, batteries are used to provide power in many systems when mains supply fail down to powering your mobile phone or the Seiko watch you're wearing... To ensure batteries are fit for the task, you must keep them in good health at all times. In this page I look briefly at some common battery ailments and how to cure them.
- This page on Characteristic Impedance of Cables at High and Low Frequencies will give you a basic insight and understanding on what's involved when working out cable losses for a typical RF Installation and other factors which will effect the RF propagation.
- Data & Voice communication Help Guide for the Electrician who wants to further their education and increase employment opportunities in this ever demanding growing industry.
- Digital video broadcasting. A new test frontier... With the imminent introduction of digital video broadcasting (DVB), broadcasting test engineers will need to develop new skills and techniques. This web-page looks at the importance of protocol analysis in testing DVD systems.
- Does Your Database Crash Your LAN? At first, users may think the new database app is the best thing yet. But they'll change their minds pretty quickly if the database and the network don't get on together.
- New Domain Name Policies
- Accessing & exchanging network residing data.
- Fast Ethernet controllers. The recent developments in Fast Ethernet and high-speed processors place new performance considerations on the design of network controllers.
- Fibre Optic Test Equipment selection guide. A brief look at the different equipment types used in the Fibre Optic industry and their limitations.
- Technical Glossary. A comprehensive "under construction" glossary page which can double as a technical reference source as well. After the glossary section, there is a section on Local Aea Networks (LAN) as wells as Protocols, Cable Distance Guide, Fibre Optic Technology, Interfaces as well as Jack Connections with various international standards included. I have collected these terms from various sources over quite a substantial time frame. It will take me quite a while to compile the complete list, so just 'hang-in-there'.
- Protecting your cables from interference.
- Intranet, the Net behind the firewall.
- Logic analysers let you delve deep into the mysteries of a digital circuit, but choosing an analyser to suit your needs can be a trade off between features and performance. In this web page, I will look at the key requirements of modern digital analysis.
- Early this decade, it was becoming increasingly clear that the 'Clarke Belt' was becoming very busy. The number of physical slots available for new satellites and Mobile Communications in the most heavily used American and European longitudes was rapidly shrinking, as were the number of available carrier frequency slots. This page is a rough guide as to what is happening and what will happen with available and new up-and-coming technologies.
- Noise Control, designing with microcontrollers in noisey environments. A modern microcontroller consists of tens of thousands of transistors potentially radiating interference in a large frequency spectrum. Therefore noise sensitivity and generation must be considered early in the design process.
- Server Clustering, or how to increase your processing power and retain your sanity.
- Spread Spectrum information. I think that this is quite useful if you would like a good solid background in this field and it's application techniques as well as it's history.
- A little about the infamous TCP/IP protocol. This page includes a few diagrams to make it a tad easier to understand. See what you think about it - better still, if anyone has spotted a major error, please let me know!! You will have to visit these pages frequently, as I am continuously updating them.
- Unleashing the power of intranets.
Please me and tell me if you liked my technical information, if I've made any mistakes or even if you might have ideas on topics for me to include here.
