LED lighting, also known as solid state lighting, is a semiconductor-based lighting technology. LEDs emit light based on the electroluminescence principle, which gives them high luminous efficacy. Also, LEDs are compact in size and are more power efficient as well as brighter than traditional lighting technologies such as incandescent and fluorescent lamps. Owing to these advantages, customers prefer to use LEDs for general lighting applications. In China, LEDs are gaining more importance…Continue

Software Defined Radio (SDR) is a virtual communication link which is built on embedded system instead of complicated hardware components. A radio may be defined as any device used to exchange digital information between two points. SDR is a radio in which some or all of the physical layer functions are software-defined. SDR can be applied to any radio connection using analog-to-digital converter. SDR provides better network automation with better capabilities.
Network operators are…Continue
