Ans: A short dipole is one in which the field is oscillating because of the oscillating voltage and current.It is called so, because the length of the dipole is short and the current is almost constant throughtout the entire length of the dipole.It is also called as Hertzian Dipole which is a hypothetical antenna and is defined as a short isolated conductor carrying uniform alternating current. 52.How radiations are created from a short Dipole? Ans:The dipole has two equal charges of opposite sign oscillating up and down in a harmonic motion.The charges will move towards each other and electric filed lines were created.When the charges meet at

the midpoint, the field lines cut each other and new field are created.This process is spontaneous and so more fields are created around the antenna.This is how radiations are obtained from a short dipole.(See Figure from John. D .Kraus Book) 53.Why a short dipole is also called an elemental dipole? A short dipole that does have a uniform current will be known as the elemental dipole.Such a dipole will generally be considerably shorter than the tenth wave length maximum specified for a short dipole.Elemental dipole is also called as elementary dipole,elementary doublet and hertzian dipole. 54.What is a Infinitesimal Dipole? When the length of the short dipole is vanishingly small,then such a dipole is called a infinitesimal dipole.If dl be the infinitesimally small length and I be the current,then Idl is called as the current element. 55.Why a short dipole is called a oscillating dipole? A short dipole is initially in neutral condition and the moment a current starts to flow in one direction,one half of the dipole require an excess of charge and the other a deficit because a current is a flow of electrical charge.Then ,there will be a voltage between the two halves of the dipole.When the current changes its direction this charge unbalance will cause oscillations.Hence an oscillating current will result in an oscillating voltage.Since,in such dipole,electric charge oscillates ,it may be called as Oscilllating electric dipole. 56.What do you understand by retarded current? Since,the short electric dipole is so short,the current which is flowing through the dipole is assumed to be constant throughtout its length.The effect of this current is not felt instantaneous at a distance point only after an interval equal to the time required for the wave to propagate over the distance r is called the retardation time.

only.It represents the energy stored in the magnetic field surrounding the current element or conductor.This field is also known as near field. 58.Define Radiation field The radiation field will be produced at a larger distance from the the current element ,where the distance from the centre of the dipole to the particular point is very large.It is also called as distant field or far field. 59.At what distance from the dipole is the induction field equal to the radiation field? As the distance from the current element or the short dipole increases ,both induction and radiation fields emerge and start decreasing .However,a distance reaches from the conductor at which both the induction and radiation field becomes equal and the particular distance depends upon the wavelength.The two fields will thus have equal amplitude at that particular distance.This distance is given by U 60.Define Radiation Resistance It is defined as the fictitious resistance which when inserted in series with the antenna will consume the same amount of power as it is actually radiated.The antenna appears to the transmission line as a resistive component and this is known as the radiation resistance. 61.Give the expression for the effective aperture of a short dipole The effective aperture of a short dipole is given by $H 2 62.What is a dipole antenna?

Ans:The dipole has two equal charges of opposite sign oscillating up and down in a harmonic motion.The charges will move towards each other and electric filed lines were created.When the charges meet at

the midpoint, the field lines cut each other and new field are created.This process is spontaneous and so more fields are created around the antenna.This is how radiations are obtained from a short dipole.(See Figure from John. D .Kraus Book) 53.Why a short dipole is also called an elemental dipole? A short dipole that does have a uniform current will be known as the elemental dipole.Such a dipole will generally be considerably shorter than the tenth wave length maximum specified for a short dipole.Elemental dipole is also called as elementary dipole,elementary doublet and hertzian dipole. 54.What is a Infinitesimal Dipole? When the length of the short dipole is vanishingly small,then such a dipole is called a infinitesimal dipole.If dl be the infinitesimally small length and I be the current,then Idl is called as the current element. 55.Why a short dipole is called a oscillating dipole? A short dipole is initially in neutral condition and the moment a current starts to flow in one direction,one half of the dipole require an excess of charge and the other a deficit because a current is a flow of electrical charge.Then ,there will be a voltage between the two halves of the dipole.When the current changes its direction this charge unbalance will cause oscillations.Hence an oscillating current will result in an oscillating voltage.Since,in such dipole,electric charge oscillates ,it may be called as Oscilllating electric dipole. 56.What do you understand by retarded current?

As the distance from the current element or the short dipole increases ,both induction and radiation fields emerge and start decreasing .However,a distance reaches from the conductor at which both the induction and radiation field becomes equal and the particular distance depends upon the wavelength.The two fields will thus have equal amplitude at that particular distance.This distance is given by U 60.Define Radiation Resistance It is defined as the fictitious resistance which when inserted in series with the antenna will consume the same amount of power as it is actually radiated.The antenna appears to the transmission line as a resistive component and this is known as the radiation resistance. 61.Give the expression for the effective aperture of a short dipole The effective aperture of a short dipole is given by $H 2 62.What is a dipole antenna?

How 555 Timer Works? 555 Timer The 555 monolithic timing circuit is a highly stable device, that can act either as a time delay generator (Monostable/one-shot), a Pulse-Width-Modulator (PWM), a RC Oscillator, or a Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO).

In the time delay mode of operation, the time is precisely controlled by one external resistor and one external capacitor. For a stable operation as an oscillator, the free running frequency and the duty cycle are both accurately controlled with two external resistors and one external capacitor. The circuit may be triggered and reset on falling waveforms (trigger, Reset), and the output can source or sink up to 200mA. APPLICATIONS Precision Timing Pulse Generation Sequential Timing Time delay Generation Pulse Width Modulation

FEATURES Turn-off time less than 2ms Max. operating frequency greater than 500kHz Timing from microseconds to hours Operates in both astable and monostable modes High output current Adjustable duty cycle TTL compatible Temperature stability of 0.005% per C you can Visit the link for more details http://courses.ncsu.edu:8020/ece480/common/htdocs/480_555.htm#description http://courses.ncsu.edu:8020/ece480/common/htdocs/pdf/555AN.pdf

Design a COMBINATIONAL circuit that can divide the clock frequency by 2. Design a 2bit up/down counter with clear using gates. (No verilog or vhdl) We have a circular wheel with half painted black and the other half painted white. There are 2 censors mounted 45 degree apart at the surface of this wheel( not touching the wheel) which give a "1" for black and "0" for white passing under them. Design a circuit to detect which way the wheel is moving. Can not assume any fixed position for start. We have a FIFO which clocks data in at 100mhz and clocks data out at 80mhz. On the input there are only 80 data bits in any order during each 100 clocks. In other words, a 100 input clock will carry only 80 data bits, and the other twenty clocks carry no data (data is scattered in any order). How big the FIFO needs to be to avoid data over/under-run.
