47 CFR 15.303 - Definitions.

Status message

There are 6 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 47 CFR Part 15. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 15.303 Definitions.
Asynchronous devices. Devices that transmit RF energy at irregular time intervals, as typified by local area network data systems.
Emission bandwidth. For purposes of this subpart the emission bandwidth shall be determined by measuring the width of the signal between two points, one below the carrier center frequency and one above the carrier center frequency, that are 26 dB down relative to the maximum level of the modulated carrier. Compliance with the emissions limits is based on the use of measurement instrumentation employing a peak detector function with an instrument resolutions bandwidth approximately equal to 1.0 percent of the emission bandwidth of the device under measurement.
Isochronous devices. Devices that transmit at a regular interval, typified by time-division voice systems.
Peak transmit power. The peak power output as measured over an interval of time equal to the frame rate or transmission burst of the device under all conditions of modulation. Usually this parameter is measured as a conducted emission by direct connection of a calibrated test instrument to the equipment under test. If the device cannot be connected directly, alternative techniques acceptable to the Commission may be used.
Personal Communications Services (PCS) Devices [Unlicensed]. Intentional radiators operating in the frequency band 1920-1930 MHz that provide a wide array of mobile and ancillary fixed communication services to individuals and businesses.
Spectrum window. An amount of spectrum equal to the intended emission bandwidth in which operation is desired.
Thermal noise power. The noise power in watts defined by the formula N=kTB where N is the noise power in watts, K is Boltzmann's constant, T is the absolute temperature in degrees Kelvin (e.g., 295 °K) and B is the emission bandwidth of the device in hertz.
Time window. An interval of time in which transmission is desired.
