INRODUCTION Some of you may be encountering electronic circuits and instruments for the first time. Others may have played around with such stuff if, for example, you were ever bitten by the ham radio bug. In either case, this sequence of laboratory experiments has been designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of modern analog and digital electronics. To that end, our goal is that by the end of the lab session, you will be able to design and build any little analog or digital circuit you may find useful, or at least understand it well enough to have an intelligent conversation about the problem with any person who has knowledge about electronics. A basic knowledge of electronics will also help you to understand and appreciate the quirks and limitations of instruments you will be using in research, testing, development, or processcontrol settings. 2.1. MEASURING INSTRUMENTS 2.1.1 Multimeter The Multimeters are the general purpose meters which can be used to measure i) Voltage ac and dc

ii) Current ac and dc iii) Resistance Switches on the meter are used to select both the function and the range of the meter. Make sure that the meter is adjusted to the correct function and initially set the meter to a less sensitive range than is needed. (Note all meters are not provided with auto range and over load cut out) Before measuring the resistance, check the meter at zero resistance by shorting the two leads and when the instrument is not in use, always return the selection knob to to the normal off position to avoid draining the battery.

Digital multimeters have better accuracy and resolution. They usually have auto ranging, and auto zero facilities, which means the user need only to set the function switch and get the reading. The digital mutimeter converts an input signal into equivalent digital display. The signal input might be a dc voltage, an ac voltage, a resistance or an ac or dc current. Advanced meters will also have facilities to measure capacitance and frequency. 2.1.2 Clamp current meter The current clamp has two jaws which are opened to allow clamping around an electrical conductor. This allows the electrical current in the conductor to be measured, without interrupting the flow of current. The most common form of current clamp comprises a split ferrite ring. A wire coil is wound round one or both halves, forming the secondary winding of a current transformer. The conductor through which the current to be measured forms the primary. The other type is based on Hall effect and is more sensitive and both DC and AC can be measured.

2.1.3 Power measurement Power dissipated by a load is referred to as true power. True power is symbolized by the letter P and is measured in the unit of Watts (W). Power merely absorbed and returned in load due to its reactive properties is referred to as reactive power. Reactive power is symbolized by the letter Q and is measured in the unit of VoltAmps-Reactive (VAR). Total power in an AC circuit, both dissipated and absorbed/returned is referred to as apparent power. Apparent power is symbolized by the letter S and is measured in the unit of Volt-Amps (VA). These three types of power are trigonometrically related to one another The ratio between real power and apparent power in a circuit is called the power factor. Where the waveforms are purely sinusoidal, the power factor is the cosine of the phase angle () between the current and voltage sinusoid waveforms. Equipment data sheets and nameplates often will abbreviate power factor as "cos" for this reason. For the purely resistive circuit, the power factor is 1, because the reactive power equals zero. For the purely inductive circuit, the power factor is zero, because true power equals zero. The same could be said for a purely capacitive circuit. The true power can be calculated from the formula P = VIcos , where V is the rms voltage, I is the rms current and cos is the power factor.



Oscilloscope is the most versatile of the test instruments. It can be used for waveform analysis, signal frequency measurement, peak to peak voltage measurement and the most important for signal tracing. The heart of an oscilloscope is the cathode ray tube (CRT). The working of a CRT depends upon generation of electrons by a heated cathode, focusing it to a thin beam and making it to travel towards positively charged anode. The electron strikes on a glass screen, coated with phosphor which gives off light, making spot on the screen. The brightness of the spot can be controlled and so its position. The spot can be deflected to any part of the screen by applying a varying electric field to the deflection plates four of them arranged in pairs, called X-plates and Y-plats. The Y-plates deflect the spot vertically up or down, while the X-plate move it from side to side. Thus, an oscilloscope can be routinely used to i) Display the waveforms

ii) Measure its frequency iii) Measure its peak to peak amplitude. To use the oscilloscope, carefully observe all the controls on the front panel. The essential controls are Intensity or Brightness control, Focus control, X and Y position control and Trigger control. Before using the instrument, make sure the following setting: Intensity control fully anticlockwise Trigger control to Auto

Vertical and horizontal position controls to midway round Volts/cm control to highest value of the range Time/cm control to 1ms/cm or its nearest value Triggering is probably the most complicated function performed by the scope. To create a stable image of a repetitive waveform, the scope must trigger its display at a particular voltage, known as the trigger threshold. The display is synchronized whenever the input signal crosses that voltage, so that many images of the signal occurring one after another can be superimposed in the same place on the screen. The level knob sets the threshold voltage for triggering. You can select whether triggering occurs when the threshold voltage is crossed from below (rising-edge triggering) or from above (falling-edge triggering) using the trigger control knobs and switches. You can also select the signal source for the triggering circuitry to be channel 1, channel 2, an external trigger signal, or the 240 V AC power line. For voltage measurement, count the number of centimeters on the vertical scale from negative peak to the positive peak and then multiply this number by the settings of the volts per centimeter switch. For example, if the volts/cm switch is set to 5V/cm, and the waveform measures 4.8 cm from peak to peak, the waveform voltage is 4.8 x 5 = 24.0 V peak to peak. For frequency measurement, the method is to measure the time period of one complete cycle on the screen i.e. the horizontal distance between two identical points on the neighbouring waves. This distance multiplied by the setting of time/cm switch to calculate the period of one cycle. The reciprocal of this time is the frequency of the waveform. For example, if the peaks of the waveform are 5 cm apart and time/cm switch is set to 200 ms/cm, the time of one cycle is 5 x 200ms = 1 s and the frequency is 1Hz.

2.2. ELECTRONIC DISCRETE COMPONENTS 2.2.1 Resistors Usually resistors are little cylinders of carbon, carbon film, metal film, or wound-up wire, encased in an insulating coating, with wire leads sticking out the ends. Often the resistance is indicated by means of colored stripes according to the resistor color code (Table 1). Resistors come in various sizes according to their power rating. The common sizes are

1 1 1 W, W, 4 8 2

Table 1. Resistor colour coding

W, 1 W, and 2 W. You can easily verify this linear relationship between voltage and current using the fixed 10 k resistance provided between the two ends of one of the breadboards potentiometers. A potentiometer is a type of resistor that has an adjustable center tap or slider, allowing electrical connections to be made not only at the two ends, but also at an adjustable point along the resistive material. Resistors in series: In a series circuit, the current flowing is the same at all points. The circuit diagram shows two resistors connected in series with a 6 V battery. The same current, 3 mA, flows through each of the two resistors. Resistors in parallel: In a parallel circuit, the voltage across the parallel branches is the same. The circuit diagram shows two resistors connected in parallel with a 6 V battery. The same voltage, 6 V, appears across each of the two resistors.


Capacitors A capacitor or condenser is a passive electronic component consisting of a pair of conductors separated by a dielectric. When a voltage potential difference exists between the conductors, an

electric field is present in the dielectric. The value of capacitance is given by C = ( orA) / d; where o permittivity of free space and has the value o= 8.854 1012 F/m, r is relative permittivity, A is area and d is distance between the plates.

Capacitors come in a variety of types, categorized according to the type of dielectric used, which determines how much capacitance can be squeezed into a small volume. Electrolytic and tantalum capacitors are polarized, which means that they have a positive end and a negative end, and the applied voltage should be more positive at the positive end than at the negative end if you reverse-voltage a polarized capacitor it can burn out, or even explode! Paper, mica, and ceramic capacitors are unpolarized and can be hooked up in either direction. The fundamental rule governing the behavior of capacitors is Q = CV, where Q is the charge stored on the capacitor at a given time, V is the voltage across the capacitor at that time, and C is the capacitance. Current can flow into or out of a capacitor, but only to the extent that the charge on the capacitor is changing. In other words, the current into or out of a capacitor is equal to the time derivative of the charge stored on it. 2.2.3 RC Circuits Integrator using RC Network

Transformer A Transformer is a static apparatus consists of two or more inductors. First inductor is powered by AC, inducing an AC voltage across the second inductor. If the second inductor is connected to a load, power will be electromagnetically coupled from the first inductor (connected to power source) to the load. The powered inductor in a transformer is called the primary winding. And whereas the unpowered inductor in a transformer is called the secondary winding. Transformers step up or step down voltage according to the ratios of primary to secondary wire turns. A transformer designed to increase voltage from primary to secondary is called a step-up transformer. A transformer designed to reduce voltage from primary to secondary is called step-down transformer. Losses in the Transformer; i) Copper loss: It is I2R loss in the primary and secondary winding.

ii) Core loss: A time varying current in transformer, which causes a time varying magnetic field in its core, causes energy losses in the core material which are dissipated as heat, due to two processes: Eddy current: From Faradays law of induction, the changing magnetic field can induce circulating loops of electric current in the conductive metal core. The energy in these currents is dissipated as heat in the resistance of the core material. hysteresis: Changing or reversing the magnetic field in the core also causes losses due to the motion of the tiny magnetic domains it is composed of. The energy loss is proportional to the area of the hysteresis in the BH graph of the core material. By being able to transfer power from one circuit to another without the use of interconnecting conductors between the two circuits, transformers provide the useful feature of electrical

isolation. Transformers designed to provide electrical isolation without stepping voltage and current either up or down is called isolation transformers. E.m.f Equation of a transformer is given by E = 4.44 Turns Ratio =

To measure the efficiency of the transformer, the above circuit is used. The measurement of primary and secondary power o o under no load condition will give core loss (primary power secondary power). under full load condition will give copper loss (power loss core loss) and efficiency (secondary power/primary power *100)


P-N Junction Diode If a junction between P-type and N-type semiconductor material is created within a single crystal, in such a way that the crystalline structure is preserved across the junction, the result is a junction diode. Electrons from the N-region migrate across the junction into the P-region, filling holes as they go. This creates a net charge build-up around the junction positive in the Nregion and negative in the P-region leading to an internal electric field as shown. Once the holes are filled, the junction region becomes devoid of charge carriers and thus acts as an insulator, preventing further current flow. If an external field is applied in the same direction as the internal field, the depletion region (region around the junction devoid of charge carriers) increases in size, so current does not flow. On the other hand, if an external field is applied opposite to the internal field, free charge carriers flow toward the junction. Electrons flow into the N-type material from the metal contact.

A PN junction thus allows current to flow easily in one direction but blocks current flow in the reverse direction. When the P-type material is at a more positive voltage than the N-type material, the diode is said to be forward-biased. When the P-type material is more negative than the N-type material, the diode is said to be reverse-biased.

Soldering is a method of joining metal parts using a filler metal of low melting point (solder) below 450 C (800 F). Purpose of soldering is (i) Good Electrical Connections (ii) Strong Mechanical Connections Soldering Iron is used to melt the solder and to make the joint of the metal parts. The reverse process of soldering is called de-soldering.

3.2 Good Soldering 3.3 Flux 3.4 Solders Solder is a metal or metallic alloy used, when melted, to join metallic surfaces together. The most common alloy is some combination of tin and lead. Certain special applications may require Silver Solder. Solder can be selected considering following Low melting temperature Narrow or No soft region 60/40 is the most common for electronic soldering. Solder wire available in different diameters, larger diameter required for soldering connectors, small diameters is sufficient for PCB soldering. Tin/Lead 40/60 50/50 60/40 63/37 Melting Point 230 C 214 C 190 C 183 C Flux only cleans oxides off the surface to be soldered. It does not remove dirt, soot, oils, silicon, etc. Dont use acid flux for electronic works. Use only ROSIN flux Now a days flux is contained in the core of the solder wire itself Clean Surface Flux Recommended solder type Recommended soldering Iron type and wattage Recommended soldering Iron tip Good timing

3.5 Soldering Iron To make good connection you have to heat the junction somewhat above the melting temperature of solder this is the job of the soldering iron. Soldering iron comes in different sizes. It is rated in terms of wattage (5W to 100W). Thicker connection such as connectors requires more heat from soldering iron so we need higher wattage soldering iron. Lighter connections like IC pins requires less heat so requires only less wattage irons.

Dont rub the tip with file or abrasives Pencil type tips are suitable for 20W to 60 W soldering iron for electronic works. Very importantly remember to tin it at the end of the session just after switching off, otherwise the casing will be damaged and the tip will go rusty and will not solder properly in future uses. Use properly grounded tip to protect sensitive components like MOSFETs and ICs.

3.6 Different step for Soldering Cleaning Tinning Tinning is the Process of coating fresh solder to a cleaned soldering iron tip. It helps to reduces oxidization and increases the amount of heat transfer to the connection. Soldering. Wetting Wetting is the penetration of solder into the surface of metal parts. Actually, it is the process, which gives physical strength and good electrical connections.

3.7 DESOLDERING TECHNIQUES Desoldering is done to remove the solder from a joint, because of replacement for a faulty component or for fixing a dry joint. Desoldering Pump The usual way is to use a desoldering pump which works like a small spring-loaded pump, only in reverse! (More demanding users using CMOS devices might need a pump which is ESD safe.) A spring-loaded plunger is released at the push of a button and the molten solder is then drawn up into the pump. It may take one or two attempts to clean up a joint this way, but a small desoldering pump is an invaluable tool especially for PCB work. Desoldering Wick An excellent alternative to a pump is to use desoldering wick which are packaged in small dispenser reels. This product is a specially treated fine copper braid which draws molten solder up into the braid where it solidifies. The best way is to use the tip of the hot iron to press a short length of braid down onto the joint to be de-soldered. The iron will subsequently melt the solder, which will be drawn up into the braid. Take extreme care to ensure that you don't allow the solder to cool with the braid adhering to the work, or you run the risk of damaging PCB copper tracks when you attempt to pull the braid off the joint.

The voltage across the capacitor reaches 66.6% of Vcc, the output is set low and the discharge input is connected back to ground. f = 1 / (0.693 (RA+2RB)C) Now, the capacitor starts discharging though resistor RB. When the voltage across the capacitor reaches 33% of Vcc, the cycle repeats and creates a series of output pulses. An astable circuit triggers from previous output pulse whereas a monostable circuit requires an externally applied trigger The astable 555 timer circuit can be used in the following applications: modulate transmitters such as ultrasonic and IR transmitters create an accurate clock signal turn on and off an actuator at set time intervals for a fixed duration 3.9 MONOSTSABLE MULTIVIBRATOR The monostable circuit outputs one pulse for each high to low transition at the trigger input pin.

3.10 D/A CONVERTER USING R-2R LADDER An R-2R Ladder is a simple and inexpensive way to perform digital-to-analog conversion, using repetitive arrangements of precision resistor networks in a ladder-like configuration. A string resistor ladder implements the non-repetitive reference network. Advantage: Higher impedance values can be reached using the same number of components.

Disadvantage: R-2R resistor ladder only increases linearly with the number of bits as it needs only resistors.

1. LEARNING OBJECTIVE The Learning objectives of the module are Teaches various advantages and applications of optical fiber communication. Understands the working principles of optical fiber communication. Familiarizes principles of voice digitization, and synchronous as well as asynchronous time division multiplexing of several signals. 2. INRODUCTION Optical fiber has rapidly become the most popular medium for long distance transmission of data, voice and video signals. Optical fiber is usually a glass core / glass cladding fiber for long distance communication. However, Plastic Coated Silica fiber or Plastic core / Plastic cladding fiber may be used for short haul communication systems. 2.1. ADVANTAGES AND APPLICATIONS 2.1.1 Advantages of Optical fiber The primary advantage of optical fiber is the large bandwidth that it offers. Since the carrier is an optical signal with a frequency exceeding 1014 Hz, it is conceivable that bandwidths of the order of 10,000 GHz can be supported. A second advantage of optical fiber is the low attenuation (loss) of the signal passing through it. Optical fibers are immune to Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference (EMI and RFI) since optical fibers are made of perfect dielectric with a totally opaque jacket. A fiber does not radiate electromagnetic energy and thus optical fiber communication is relatively secure. Optical fiber is extremely small in size and is of very low weight. Further, optical fiber sensors offer extreme sensitivity.

2.1.2 General Applications of Optical fiber Used in the transmission of signaling information for railways.

Used for communication between NC (Numerically Controlled) machines on a factoryfloor. Used in a variety of local networks, and for communications within tanks, ships and aircraft. Supports mind-boggling number of voice channels. Used to sense physical parameters like displacement, strain and pressure sensors, temperature, velocity, acceleration, current, voltage etc. 3. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND DEFAULT SETTINGS DURING OPERATING OPTIC FIBER COMMUNICATION TRAINER (OFT) 3.1 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS 1. As the Optic Fiber Trainer is powered from 230V mains, observe electrical safety. 2. The Optical Transmitters are LASER sources. So, DO NOT stare at the light emanating out of fiber for longer period. Also DO NOT focus LASER beam on you or other student colleagues. 3. OFT is provided with many jumpers, shorting plugs and patch cords. Handle them carefully without losing any, as the entire functioning of the unit depends on these jumpers. 3.2 DEFAULT SETTINGS 1. Ensure that all shorting-link post pairs A & B in the OFT are shorted with shorting plugs. 2. Ensure that all jumper posts A 1 & B of Jumpers in the OFT are shorted using shorting plugs. This is the default setting for the jumpers. 3. Set the ANALOG/DIGITAL selection switch SW8 to the DIGITAL position. 4. ELEMENTS OF FIBER OPTIC COMMUNICATION Optical Fiber is primarily used for digital communication today. A fiber optic digital communication system usually consists of the following: 1. Optical transmitter (TX), including Electrical to Optical (E/O) Converter 2. Optical Receiver (RX), including Optical to Electrical (O/E) Converter 3. Optical fiber 4. Connectors, couplers and splices 5. Timing recovery unit

6. Line coder 7. Line decoder 8. Voice Video Coders & Multiplexers 9. De-multiplexer & Voice Video Decoders

Figure 1. Elements of Fiber Optic Communication

6. EXPERIMENTS IN FIBER OPTIC TRAINER 6.1 Setting up a link 1. Once OFT is switched ON, LEDs L8 or L9 or both in the marker detection block will be on, indicating that there is no link established. 2. Take the 1m fiber cable to set up a working fiber-optic link. 3. Connect the 1m fiber between LED1 (in the Optical Tx1 block) and PD1 (in the Optical Rx1 block). (Unscrew the caps of the LED and the Photo Diode a few turns and gently push the fiber in until firmly seated, then tighten the caps.) Set the GAIN knob to its minimum position. 4. Now slowly increase the gain until L8 and L9 go off (in the marker detection block). Press the RESET switch. Now LEDs L8 and L9 should both be off. 6.2 To verify if link established

1. Toggle the switches SWO to SW7 (in the 8-bit data transmit block) and see the corresponding LEDs LO to L7 (in the 8-bit receive block) toggling. The OFT now has a working fiber-optic link set up. 2. Connect one of the telephone handsets to the telephone socket PHONE 1. Blow into the mouthpiece. You should hear the blowing sound in the earpiece, without any other noise. OFT is now installed and ready for use. 6.3 TIME DIVISION MULTIPLEXING (TDM) OF SIGNALS The basic multiplexer in optic fiber trainer has twelve 64 kbps channels which are time multiplexed. Time Division Multiplexing is also the basis of time-switching used today in Telecom switches. While multiplexing, say the voice signal from port 1, is transmitted before the voice signal from port 2. But at the receiver, the first received signal can be fed to port 2, and the later signal to port 1, resulting in switching between the two ports. PROCEDURE 1. During power on, both even and odd marker patterns at the marker generator and marker reference blocks will be set automatically as follows: Even marker in both blocks:- all bits set to zeros and odd marker in both blocks:- 6th bit set to one and other bits are don't care. i.e. Even marker Odd marker 0000 0000 x1xx xxxx

2. Ensure that the marker patterns are set to the above power-on default settings. Turn on at least one of the Switches SW0-SW7 in the 8-bitdata transmit block. This ensures that the multiplexer is correctly aligned. 3. When the optical link is working, the LEDs L8 and L9 in the marker detection block will be OFF without any flicker. Toggle SW0 and observe the toggling of L0. The digital link and the TDM MUX-DEMUX are now set up. 4. Connect the telephone handsets at PHONE 1 & PHONE 2. 5. OFT is now being used in the loop-back mode. The data and voice channels multiplexed on the Transmit side are de-multiplexed on the Receive side of the Trainer. The voice input at the mouthpiece is now being looped back through the fiber to the earpiece. Check this by disturbing the fiber link by removing the fiber from PD1, while speaking into the mouthpiece of one of the handsets. Note that you can now no longer hear yourself in the earpiece. (The best way to check this is to blow into the mouthpiece while you disturb the link). Use

oscilloscope (CRO) provided to you to observe Time Division Multiplexed wave form by connecting Tx frame clock in CRO channel 1 and Tx Data in CRO channel 2. The CRO display in channel 2 should be similar to one given as Figure 2 (FRAME WITH MARKER AND SLOTS). 6. TIME SWITCHING OF VOICE: Establish the fiber link again. Remove the shorting plugs of the voice enable shorting links S7 and S8 in the timing & control block on the Transmitter side. Using the patch cords, interchange the voice slots by interconnecting the Slot Select 1 signal [post A of S7] to the Voice Enable 2 [post B of S8] and the Slot Select 2 signal [post A of S8] to the Voice Enable 1 [post B of S7]. Voice 1 and Voice 2 are now crossconnected and a conversation can be carried out between two people using the two phones. The two slots carrying voice data are now time-switched to provide the necessary connection. Carry on a conversation, while at the same time turning data switches SWO-SW7 on and off, to observe the simultaneous transmission of eight bit data in one channel and two voice channels on the link. 7. Reconnect the shorting links S7 and S8 to restore the original connection. However, now remove the shorting plugs of the voice enable shorting links S27 and S28 in the timing & control block on the Receiver side, and cross-connect them as explained before. Note that once again the Voice 1 and Voice 2 are cross-connected. Now remove S7 and S8 again and crossconnect as before. Note that Voice 1 Microphone signal is now connected back to Voice 1 speaker again. Switching at both Transmitter and Receiver ends cancel out each other.

6.3 MARKER IN TIME DIVISION MULTIPLEXING In the last experiment, we have observed time division multiplexing and demultiplexing of several channels. In this experiment, we examine the role of the MARKER used in time division multiplexing. The marker is a unique bit pattern placed at some fixed position in the frame and is used to determine the start of the frame at the receiver. This experiment is designed to demonstrate: 1. The necessity for the marker 2. Data bits giving rise to a false marker 3. Use of a complex marker to avoid false markers. The objective of this experiment is to study the role of a marker in time division multiplexing. The marker is usually a unique bit pattern used to determine frame boundaries. Sometimes a different marker is used in alternate frames to counter the possibility of data bits

containing the marker sequence generating false marker detection. Such markers are also examined in this experiment. Figure 2 shows a TDM frame with Marker and Slots.

FIGURE 2. FRAME WITH MARKER AND SLOTS PROCEDURE The power-on default marker patterns are explained already. Now to modify that default pattern the following steps are used: To program the even marker in the marker generator block: connect the program marker post P5 in the 8-bit data transmit block to the marker program post P6. Now the OFT is in marker program mode, and the 8 bits in the marker generator block correspond to the settings of the data switches SW0-SW7. Toggle the switches to set them to the required pattern. The marker will also be set to the same pattern. To confirm the marker setting, remove the patch cord from the signal posts. OFT now comes out of programming mode. Similarly program the other markers in the marker generator and marker reference blocks, suing their respective marker program posts and the program marker post P5. 1. Ensure that the odd & even markers are all set to zeros using the procedure given above. Ensure that the shorting link S31 is shorted to select the single marker type. Set up the fiber optic digital link and ensure that the multiplexer /de- multiplexer is working. 2. The start of the frame is determined by a marker. In this case, the marker is a bit pattern which is always placed in slot 0 as shown in Fig 2, and its occurrence signals the start of a new frame. Set the even marker in the marker generator block to 11000011. Ensure that the even marker in the receiver block has the same data bit pattern as the even marker in the Transmitter block. You will observe the multiplexer /de- multiplexer working, as the marker bits are compared with those in the even marker in the receiver

block. Now change one bit in the even marker in the receiver block (say bit 5). Check if the de- multiplexer is working. Press the RESET switch. Observe that the communication is lost. Change the even marker in the receiver block back to the setting of the even marker in the transmitter side. Check the functioning of the de- multiplexer. 3. Now set the switches SW7 - SWO as 11000011. Press the RESET switch several times till you find the receive LEDs L7-LO all lighting up. Press the RESET Switch several times again. You will find that while most of the time L7-LO correspond to SW7-SWO, sometimes all the LEDs light up. This is when a data slot has been falsely accepted as a marker. The voice communication will now be totally disrupted. Check this by listening on a handset. Change anyone of the switches SW7-SWO. Notice that the OFT system is working again. 4. The marker is supposed to be a unique bit pattern in the data stream which is identified at the receiver to signal the beginning of a frame. What happens if the bit pattern is contained elsewhere as data (either in one slot or sharing two slots)? 5. To avoid this situation, the receiver circuit is usually designed to detect a marker repeating itself once in a frame. It is only the repetition of the marker bit pattern over several frames which allow the bit pattern to be accepted as the marker. It is highly unlikely that a random data stream will have this pattern repeating at the same position in every frame. However, to avoid even such an unlikely possibility, which we generated deliberately in steps 3 above, the marker is sometimes chosen to be different in alternate frames; i.e. a certain bit pattern is taken as a marker called the even marker, and another bit pattern with at least one bit different from the above is taken as the odd marker. The "even marker" is to be the marker in say every even frame and the "odd marker" in the odd frames. Data inserted in the frame is extremely unlikely to have this pattern repeated. OFT allows setting up a Double marker, where the odd marker consists of only 1 bit, i.e. bit 6, which would normally be set to be the opposite of the corresponding bit in the even marker. 6. Disconnect the shorting link S31 to activate double marker detection. Program the even marker pattern as 10011011 and odd marker pattern as - 1 - - - - - - in both the marker generation and marker reference blocks. Bits other than 6 in the odd marker are 'don't care'. Press the RESET switch. Operate the data switches and observe the multiplexer operation. Note that both L8 and L9 are OFF when both markers are locked. Now make bit 6 of the odd marker at the Rx side ZERO without changing the odd marker in the Tx side. L9 will now turn ON indicating loss of alternate marker only. Turn bit 6 of the odd marker back to ONE. Change one of the bits of the even marker in the Rx side without

changing the even marker in the Tx side. Again note that L9 goes ON, indicating alignment with only the odd marker and loss of the even marker. Now turn bit 6 of the odd marker at the Rx side to ZERO. Note that both L8 and L9 go ON, indicating loss of both the markers. Correct the odd and even markers at the Rx side to once again lock the frame. L8 and L9 now go OFF. The marker is a repetitive bit pattern placed in some predefined positions in one or more (multiple) frames. The receiver searches for this pattern in the received data. Once this pattern is found for several successive frames (or multi-frames), the receiver is considered to be locked, and de-multiplexing is carried out. Locking on to the correct marker is crucial to correct de-multiplexing. We saw in the experiment that all communication is totally disrupted when the receiver locks on to a false marker.

5.1 Safety precautions during operating Pneumatic systems It is essential to be careful when using pneumatics to build circuits and follow the essential safety rules. Never blow compressed air at anyone. Dont turn the main air supply on until the circuit is connected up. Disconnected pipes can whip round and cause injury. If air is leaking from a joint turn the air supply off. Always turn air off before altering the circuit. Keep fingers away from the moving piston rods. 5.1 Safety precautions during operating Hydraulic systems Check all hoses are connected properly before switch on the Pump. Check the Pressure relief valve setting is within the operating pressure limit as excessive pressure may cause bursting of tubes. Do not spill hydraulics oil on the floor as it may cause slipping, falling. Clean up spills immediately. Check all hydraulic hoses, tube lines and fittings are in proper condition before operating the hydraulic machine and be sure all line connections are tight. Keep fingers away from the moving piston rods. Before disconnecting the tubes, relieve all hydraulic pressure and discharge the accumulator. Do not bring any flame near the oil tank as it may cause fire accidents.

Do not disconnect hoses when the pump is running as severe burns from hot fluid can result. Clean your hand with soap and water after completing the experiment. 6.
