AIMS Leadless pacing can be done by transmitting energy by an alternating magnetic field from a subcutaneous transmitter unit (TU) to an endocardial receiver unit (RU). Safety and energy consumption are key issues that determine the clinical feasibility of this new technique. The aims of the study were (i) to evaluate the stimulation characteristics of the(More)
The digital audio broadcasting (DAB) standard allows high spectrum efficiency, high voice quality, energy saving transmission and additional non-audio services like video and data transmission. Especially the last aspect enables the reuse of the DAB physical layer (PHY) for cognitive radio (CR) systems This manuscript analyzes the performance of a DAB(More)

Data analyses suggest that in the past five years there has been a trend toward facilities becoming smoke-free. Facilities that permit smoking face greater conflicts between residents and staff.(More)
The digital audio broadcasting (DAB) standard has established the family of standards for efficient and reliable multimedia broadcasting. Based on OFDM technology the DAB standard provides high spectrum efficiency and reliable data transfer. Due to its limited channel bandwidth, DAB can be used for cognitive radio (CR) application in the TV whitespace(More)
