The filtering operation costs $1.2 million annually and is passed on to local ratepayers as a surcharge on their water bills.
Instead, it is much better if one can assign the filtering function to the antenna since the latter is a vital element for any wireless communication system; hence the antenna can perform the filtering operation without the need for integrating filtering circuits.
The filtering operation is the final step of the DF process, and is responsible for smoothing the samples on either side of the block boundary.
All waveforms require one filtering operation except FBMC-OQAM, which requires two real-valued filtering operations in parallel (see Section 3.2.2).
The filtering operation on the image segmentation is based on the gray orientation guide.
The residual is then added to the original signal and this sum is again run through the filter, giving the overall filtering operation
Filtering operation does not bring about any change in stationarity status of the input process and thus both input and output discrete-time processes become jointly stationary [5-9].
The combined procedures with various types of filtering operation have been attempted for many years with varying degree of success.
The filtering operation affects three samples on both sides of edges on a block boundary (List et al., 2003; Richardson, 2003; Raja and Mirza, 2006).
Controlled by a PLC for the filtering operation, this new standalone filtering system is now available for use with any wire EDM.
Since the reconstruction is a weighted summation of Gaussian functions and not an adaptive filtering operation, it is free of typical filtering artifacts such as phase shift, overshoot, and passband ripple.
Key to realizing the architecture is the on-the-fly data filtering operation, which supports both expanded information retrieval functionality and conflict resolution for management of changes to database contents.
