    Why do satellite use microwaves?

    Hello, I know higher the frequency more likelihood of causing resonance in similar size molecules, thus increasing abosorption chances. Then why do satellites communication use so high frequencies (L, K band etc.) ? I want to know why these pass through the ionosphere and not abosrbed...

    Tracking system - GPS or RF ?

    Is it true that GPS needs a direct line-of-sight link with the antenna and satellite ? If it is so, I was wondering how can a GPS based system work to track containers kept inside a vehicle ? Many Thanks.

    Help for "Error : does not hold value outside clk edge&

    Hello, I am trying to compile a VHDL code written by another person. I am getting this error for a number of signals. The Quartus Help file apparently does not provide any details on this error. Can anyone help what the reason is and how can the error be corrected?

    VHDL : 'Integer' range and its use

    Hello, I know that integer's range is upto 2^31 - 1. But does this condition apply to the every number in the equation that would result in an integer ? e.g. signal factor : integer ; begin factor <= (2**48) / (300E6) ; factor_bin <= conv_std_logic_vector (factor,20); 2**48 is...

    How to convert 'real' values to std_logic_vector ?

    vhdl std_logic_vector type conversion So how should dividers be implemented in VHDL for Quartus? The thing is Quartus compiler was inferring the "/" operator as a divider when the numbers involved were integer types but not for unsigned !

    How to convert 'real' values to std_logic_vector ?

    real in std_logic_vector I opted to work with all 'unsigned' type numbers and I'm getting an error in using "/" (division) operator ! What does this mean ?

    Fundamentals of DOA ?

    I am looking to implement SAGE Algorithm. My present understanding is to go through a series of literature illustrated by the following pyramid. I am basically around the second from bottom to last layer/step of the pyramid. Thanks.

    How to convert 'real' values to std_logic_vector ?

    convert real to std_logic_vector Heres my problem: 1. 'integer' is only 32 bits. I am working with numbers greater than that uptil 48 bits. (e.g. 4.456E13) 2. My idea was to use 'real' numbers for all computations and then convert them to a std_logic_vector of 48 bits to output ports. So...
