9IPT: Timing in T&R

posted Jul 22, 2012, 2:11 PM by Eddie Woo
Another of those little things that communications systems take care of without us worrying about it: timing. Today, we'll be looking at why time is so important in the process of transmitting and receiving, and how computer-based systems resolve the problems that come up because of it. 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.
