Fading Channel

Module by: Ha Ta-Hong, Tuan Do-Hong. E-mail the authorsEdited By: Ha Ta-Hong, Tuan Do-HongTranslated By: Ha Ta-Hong, Tuan Do-Hong

For most channels, where signal propagate in the atmosphere and near the ground, the free-space propagation model is inadequate to describe the channel behavior and predict system performance. In wireless system, s signal can travel from transmitter to receiver over multiple reflective paths. This phenomenon, called multipath fading, can cause fluctuations in the received signal’s amplitude, phase, and angle of arrival, giving rise to the terminology multipath fading. Another name, scintillation, is used to describe the fading caused by physical changes in the propagating medium, such as variations in the electron density of the ionosopheric layers that reflect high frequency radio signals. Both fading and scintillation refer to a signal’s random fluctuations.

'My Favorites' is a special kind of lens which you can use to bookmark modules and collections. 'My Favorites' can only be seen by you, and collections saved in 'My Favorites' can remember the last module you were on. You need an account to use 'My Favorites'.

Definition of a lens

Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
