With Internet host counts doubling every five to seven months, there is a pressing need for high-speed interconnect circuits in routers, switches, and computer systems . These transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX) chips for 10Gb/s serial data transmission provide clock generation, 16:1 multiplexing, clock recovery, 1:16 demultiplexing and loss of signal… (More)
This chapter gives a basic description of what can be done with the VLBA. First the types of observations for which the array was built are reviewed. The special characteristics of the array that facilitate such observations are described. Then the major factors that determine whether a particular experiment can be done are discussed in some detail. These… (More)

Practical aspects of VLBI imaging are discussed, with emphasis on the choices of parameters. Particular attention is paid to the interaction between the parameter choices and both the image appearance and the t of the model (image) to the data. The process is illustrated using an image made from 13 cm data from a VLBA geodesy experiment.
