Interoperability, adoption, use case, readiness, and safety/regulatory are the key differentiating factors among these competing technologies.
Millions of transistors are found in integrated circuits across every electronic device. Here, we focus specifically on bipolar junction transistors.
Non-return-to-zero (NRZ), non-return-to-zero-inverted (NRZI), return-to-zero (RZ), and Manchester are popular serial encoding mechanisms (see figure). Each has different characteristics that make it useful in different applications. Those dealing...
