9IPT: Signal Timing

posted Jul 24, 2011, 2:50 PM by Eddie Woo
Today, you'll be spending the first part of the lesson looking at the important concept of timing in transmitting and receiving, and the second part of your lesson on group work (since we'll be missing our double period next week for the AMC). Please complete the following tasks: 
  1. Explain why transmitting and receiving devices need to carry out some form of synchronisation. 
  2. Describe synchronous and asynchronous data transmission.
  3. Contrast the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
Once you've completed the above tasks - and made sure you are up-to-date with previously assigned work - get a move on with your group project! And this stage, you should be starting to form a complete draft of your assignment - that is, you should have started elements of every part of the project by now. If not, get to work! 8-)
