A cube of side 3 units is formed using a set of smaller cubes of side 1 unit. Find the proportion of the number of faces of the smaller cubes visible to those which are NOT visible?

Vikas replied | 29/11/2016

Surface area for 3 Units cube = 6 sides area = 6 x 3^2 = 6 x9 = 54 Units^2.
Surface not visible is basically 4 planes in between the cubes say 2 parallel & 2 orthogonal.
So area of single plane i.e. invisible = 3x3 = 9 Unit^2.
So area of 4 planes invisible = 4 x 9 = 36 Unit^2.

A plot of radial distance versus the angle it makes with the x-axis is called polar plot.

Vikas replied | 01/12/2016

Polar Plot. A plot of a function expressed in polar coordinates, with radius as a function of angle.

As we have Cartesian Plot X,Y Graph, similarly R,Theta Coordinates i.e. Radius & Angle coordinates gives Polar Plot.

To convert from Polar Coordinates (r,theta) to Cartesian Coordinates (x,y) :
x = r × cos( theta )
y = r × sin(theta )

To answer this in layman's terms:-
Microprocessor is a term used to describe a digital device that is exclusively used to perform computation involving multiple steps, typically, execute instructions that are stored in the memory and which can be programmed .

Micro controller on the other hand is a term that is used to describe a programmable device that is primarily used to control a physical system.

A microprocessor is an Integrated Circuit (IC) which has only the Central Processing Unit (CPU) inside it. They lack Random Access Memory (RAM), Read Only Memory (ROM), and other peripherals on the chip. To deploy a microprocessor in a system, the above-mentioned peripherals are required to be connected. The Intel Pentium series, i3, i5, Cortex A8 are popular microprocessors which find their applications in desktop PC’s, Laptops, notepads etc.

Unlike microprocessors, micro controllers possess a CPU along with RAM, ROM, and other peripherals on the same chip. Therefore, it is also termed as a mini computer. Though the size of RAM and ROM and the processing power is far less as compared to an actual computer, it meets all the characteristics of a complete computer. Popular microcontrollers in the market are 8051, STM32, PIC32, Arduino, ATMEL etc. «less

A microprocessor typically refers specifically to the device/component whose job it is to fetch commands, interpret the command opcodes, and execute the commands. In a modern microprocessor, this basically means the ALU, the register set, instruction pipeline, and the microprocessor control circuitry to perform the Von-neumann "fetch-decode-execute" cycle. One generalization is that microprocessors require an external bus and discreet memory devices to interface with (separate from internal registers, and whatever built in caching memory the microprocessor contains).

Microcontrollers - on the other hand, are more generalized devices which contain a microprocessor, a main system bus, ram, ROM/flash, and typically a set of other devices such as a programmable interrupt controller, analog/digital converters, any number of general purpose IO devices, communications interfaces, etc...

So... microprocessors are the things that actually compute/calculate the work, and microcontrollers are devices which contain a microprocessor and a bunch of other integrated devices one might need when writing firmware.

Microcontrollers are not exclusively stand-alone devices as they need external circuitry to do things like bias their timing circuitry, provide power regulation, perform filtering and noise bypassing, etc... «less

I will try to explain using examples. calculations attached respectively:-
A system has a gain of 80 dB without feedback. If the negative feedback fraction is 1/50th. Calculate the closed-loop gain of the system in dB with the addition of negative feedback.
Negative feedback example:-
Then we can see that the system has a loop gain of 10,000 and a closed-loop gain of 34 dB.

Negative Feedback Example No 2:-
If after 5 years the loop gain of the system without negative feedback has fallen to 60 dB and the feedback fraction has remained constant at 1/50th. Calculate the new closed-loop gain value of the system.
Negative feedback example 3:
Then we can see from the two examples that without feedback, after 5 years of use the systems gain has fallen from 80 dB down to 60 dB, (10,000 to 1,000) a drop in open loop gain of about 25%.
However with the addition of negative feedback the systems gain has only fallen from 34 dB to 33.5 dB, a reduction of less than 1.5%, which proves that negative feedback gives added stability to a systems gain.
Therefore we can see that by applying negative feedback to a system greatly reduces its overall gain compared to its gain without feedback.
The systems gain without feedback can be very large but not precise as it may change from one system device to the next, then it is possible to design a system with sufficient open-loop gain that, after the negative feedback has been added, the overall gain matches the desired value.
Also, if the feedback network is constructed from passive elements having stable characteristics, the overall gain becomes very steady and unaffected by variation in the systems inherent open-loop gain. «less

What are the properties of negative feedback in closed loop system?

They are commonly used in process, micro-computer and amplifier systems.
In general feedback is the process by which a fraction of the output signal, either a voltage or a current, is used as an input. If this feed back fraction is opposite in value or phase to the input signal, then the feedback is said to be Negative Feedback, or sometimes degenerative feedback.

In general feedback is the process by which a fraction of the output signal, either a voltage or a current, is used as an input. If this feed back fraction is opposite in value or phase to the input signal, then the feedback is said to be Negative Feedback, or sometimes degenerative feedback.
Negative feedback opposes or subtracts from the input signals giving it many advantages in the design and stabilisation of control systems. For example, if the systems output changes for any reason, then negative feedback affects the input in such a way as to counteract the change.
Feedback reduces the overall gain of a system with the degree of reduction being related to the systems open-loop gain. Negative feedback also has effects of reducing distortion, noise, sensitivity to external changes as well as improving system bandwidth and input and output impedances.
Feedback in an electronic system, whether negative feedback or positive feedback is unilateral in direction. Meaning that its signals flow one way only from the output to the input of the system. This then makes the loop gain, G of the system independent of the load and source impedances.
As feedback implies a closed-loop system it must therefore have a summing point. In a negative feedback system this summing point or junction at its input subtracts the feedback signal from the input signal to form an error signal, which drives the system. If the system has a positive gain, the feedback signal must be subtracted from the input signal in order for the feedback to be negative as shown. «less

A 16 Kb (=16,384 bit) memory array is designed as a square with an aspect ratio of one (number of rows is equal to the number of columns). The minimum number of address lines needed for the row decoder is ________ ?

Shantanu replied | 23/11/2016

Explanation:-
Generally the structure of a memory chip = Number of Row × Number of column (M*N)
The number of address line required for row decoder is n where M= 2^n
or n= Log(base2) M.
As per information given in the question: M=N
So M*N= M*M= M^2=16k = 2^4 * 2^10
=> M^2 = 2^ 14
M=128
n= log(base2) 128
n=7.

Alok Singh Thakur replied | 23/11/2016

Ans is 7;
as 16Kb=2^4*2^10=2^14
now memory = 2^(m*n);(m is no of column and n is no. of row)
here m=n
so 2^14=2^7*2^7
m=n=7

Piyush Chauhan replied | 21/11/2016

400 kHz

Shantanu replied | 22/11/2016

400 kHz
Explanation: Since GSM requires 200 KHz and only 8 users can use it using TDMA, 9th user needs
another 200 KHz.
9th, 10th, 11th, 12th user can use another 200 kHz bandwidth on time share basis.
Thus, for 12 user we need 400 kHz bandwidth.

A metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) is a voltage-controlled electronic component invented by a South Korean Engineer Dawon Kahng, and his colleague Martin M. Atalla in 1959 whilst working at Bell Labs. It was the first insulated gate FET, consisting of a metal gate (M), oxide insulation (O), and silicone semiconductor material (S). In this device, a voltage at the gate junction produces an electric field, which controls the current flowing between the source and drain junctions. This MOS technology was later utilised to develop integrated circuits (IC) which Kahng foresaw.
The differences in the operation between a MOSFET and a bipolar junction transistor (BJT) are huge, but the main ones are that a BJT is a current controlled device because current at the base junction controls the flow of current between the collector and emitter junctions. However, a MOSFET is a voltage-controlled device, where a voltage at the gate junction creates an electric field, which controls the flow of current between the source and drain junctions. «less

Define hole current density?

Siva Naga Raju replied | 22/11/2016

It is answered in 2 parts. Holes are one of the charge carriers present in extrinsic semiconductors. Current Density (J) is defined as the current flowing per unit area of the conductor. So, Hole current density is a component of total current density in a semiconductor that is exclusively due to the movement of holes.

Vikas replied | 23/11/2016

In physics, a hole is an electric charge carrier with a positive charge, equal in magnitude but opposite in polarity to the charge on the electron. Holes and electrons are the two types of charge carriers responsible for current in semiconductor materials & the amount of electric current flowing per unit cross-sectional area of a material is known as current density.

Modulation is the addition of information to an electronic or optical carrier signal. A carrier signal is one with a steady waveform -- constant height (amplitude) and frequency. Information can be added to the carrier by varying its amplitude, frequency, phase, polarization (for optical signals), and even quantum-level phenomena like spin.
