What Is the Difference Between 3G-SDI and HD-SDI?

It is known that SDI interfaces can be roughly divided into three types: SD-SDI (270Mbp, SMPTE259M), HD-SDI (1.485Gbps, SMPTE292M) and 3G-SDI (2.97Gbps, SMPTE424M). It is seen from these standards of division that the rate is an important index. For HD-SDI and 3G-SDI, as the commonly-used two types in radio and television industry, maybe there are still many people unfamiliar with…

An Analysis on Principles and Key Techs of 40G/100G Coherent Optical Communication

As the large-scale deployment of 40Gb/s is carried out, many new 100G/s code modulation formats have emerged in the industry. For various transmission code patterns with different features, based on the comprehensive consideration on parameters of other system design, comprehensive selections are made from perspectives of transmission distance, channel spacing, compatibility with 40Gb/s and 10Gb/s systems, costs of optical transceiver…

The Interpretation of 5G Related Terms

Since the end of last year, the heat of the word “5G” has remained high. As a cutting-edge communications technology, 5G has many terms. Due to the oversimplification and nastyness of the names of standards, specifications, and technologies adopted by various institutions and the complexity of 5G technology itself, there are many similar and confusing phenomena in these terms. This…
