OFDMA System Analysis and Design Answers to RF Cafe Quiz #30(Title)

All RF Cafe quizzes would make perfect fodder for employment interviews for technicians or engineers - particularly those who are fresh out of school or are relatively new to the work world. Come to think of it, they would make equally excellent study material for the same persons who are going to be interviewed for a job.

1.  Which of these are advantages of Frequency Division Multiplexing (FDM)?

d)  All the above (see page 5)

2.  Which transmission scheme has the highest spectral efficiency?

c)  Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDMA)  (see page 13... I made up answer d)

3.  In multi-path signal computations, what is the "plane-earth" model?

a)  A model used for airborne system calculations
b)  A model that considers the earth surface to be flat
c) c)  A model that neglects obstacles, i.e., "plane"
d)  All the above

b)  A model that considers the earth surface to be flat (see page 20)

4.  What are "linear block codes" in channel coding lingo?

a)  A class of codes used for error detection or correction (see page 47)

5.  How does a high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) affect OFDM systems?

c)  Significantly (see page 93)

6.  What is the "physical layer" of a protocol?

a)  It is the code (software/firmware) responsible for the actual transmission
     of bits across the medium (see page 97)

7.  What is "receive diversity?"

d)  Dynamically selecting the best signal from multiple antennas (see page 122)

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe WebmasterCopyright
1996 - 2022
Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
