Body sensor network applications require a large amount of data to be communicated over radio frequency. The radio transceiver is typically the largest source of power dissipation; improvements on energy consumption can thus be achieved by enabling on-node processing to reduce the number of packets to be transmitted. On-node processing is facilitated by a timely control over process execution to sequence operations on data; yet, the latter must be enabled while keeping high-level software abstracted from both underlying software and hardware intricacies to accommodate portability to the wide range of hardware and software platforms. We investigated the challenges of implementing software services for on-node processing and devised constructs and system abstractions that integrate applications, drivers, time synchronization and MAC functionality into a system software which presents limited dependency between components and enables timely control of processes. We support our claims with a performance evaluation of the software tools implemented within the FreeRTOS micro-kernel. © Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering 2010.

High Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) is a critical issue in multicarrier communication systems using Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), as in the Second Generation Terrestrial Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB-T2) system. This problem can result in large performance degradation due to the nonlinearity of the High Power Amplifier (HPA) or in its low power efficiency. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of different Tone Reservation-based techniques for PAPR reduction in DVB-T2 context. Also, we propose an iterative TR-based technique called "One Kernel One Peak" (OKOP). Simulation results and performance comparison of these techniques in terms of gain in PAPR reduction, mean power variation, and complexity will be given. Finally, we describe the implementation of a PAPR reduction algorithm in the DVB-T2 modulator. Copyright © 2010 Mohamad Mrou et al.

The Multiple Physical Layer Pipes (M-PLP) mechanism allows different modulation schemes and robustness for different services within a DVB-T2 multiplex. M-PLP provides maximum flexibility, without any drawback or overhead. Network equipment is available and deployed. There is also no additional complexity in the network compared to single PLP deployment. DVB-T2 chipsets are already M-PLP compliant and end-user receivers are now available without extra-cost for the support of M-PLP. The M-PLP feature of DVB-T2 opens to a wide range of new business models, such as different QoS classes, regionalization, bandwidth sharing, that broadcasters can take advantage to monetize the spectrum. Like any DTTV deployment, regional service insertion is a key point for DTTV service success and with Multiple PLP technology, DVB-T2 offers different ways to carry out this local channel insertion in a nation-wide rollout, in a much more efficient and flexible way than any other Digital TV standard.

Housing for an electronic card includes a chassis that has a base, a cover, and an insertion wall. The base has a female element and a pocket. The electronic card can be introduced/extracted through a window of the insertion wall. The electronic card also includes guide walls, each including: a guide groove to receive the electronic card; a male element to cooperate with the female element; a tongue disposed at an end of the guide wall oriented on a side opposing the insertion wall and forming an arm having a stud to be inserted in the pocket; a clip disposed at the guide wall end and forming an elastic blade with a tooth oriented towards the base, and a face of the blade is oriented towards the cover and is designed to abut the latter; and a backplane electronic card to be inserted between the blade and the arm.

Method of broadcasting a set of national and regional DVB-T2 programs not requiring duplicating the broadcasting of the national programs nor uploading the regional programs to a central point. This method is based on the creation of various T2-MI streams using PLP technology. A T2-MI stream is dedicated to the national programs. T2-MI streams are created for the regional programs. The national programs intended to be replaced by regional programs are isolated in specific pipes. The frame durations and the size of the box are harmonized between the various pipes. Each transmitter receives firstly the national T2-MI stream and at least one regional T2-MI stream. It has a device for replacing at least one pipe of the national T2-MI stream with a pipe of the regional T2-MI stream in order to generate the T2-MI stream to be transmitted.

The present invention concerns a method for generating a stream in accordance with the DVB standard that is understood by a first-generation decoder, typically in accordance with DVB-S/C/T/, and which also enables the deterministic generation of a stream in accordance with the second-generation DVB-T2 standard. A method is described for generating a stream containing a multiplex according to a first-generation DVB standard. This stream also contains the information relating to an encapsulation in accordance with DVB-T2 of at least one subset of broadcast programmes inserted in the stream in the form of private sections that will be ignored by a first-generation decoder that will decode the stream in accordance with the first-generation standard. Equipment according to the invention can construct the T2-MI stream at a DVB-T2 transmitter deterministically, which can then be integrated in an SFN network.

A method for generating a stream from first and second data streams received, the data streams comprising frames, each frame containing a synchronization packet, a signaling packet giving information on the structure of the data stream and packets referred to as baseband frames. The method comprises the steps of aligning the two data streams received by putting in phase the synchronization packets or the signaling packets of the frames of each data stream, identifying, in one of the data streams received, baseband packets identifying packets of a first type, and inserting, in each frame of the first stream received, baseband packets of the frame of the second stream the synchronization packet of which is aligned with the synchronization packet of the frame of the first stream.

A device is positioned upstream of a modulator in a digital service stream broadcasting chain, and is adapted to receive a plurality of transport streams and to transmit a transport stream to a modulator, each transport stream encapsulating a digital service stream adapted to be broadcast by the modulator, the digital service streams representing the same digital service. The device is also adapted to: digital service streams from the received transport streams; detect errors in the streams; align the extracted streams; select a stream from the aligned streams, according to any errors detected; encapsulate the selected stream, in order to form the stream to be transmitted to the modulator.
