I've got a MSc in Electrical Engineering, and I'm currently a trainee at the Technische Universiteit of Eindhoven (TU/e) in a program called Smart Energy Buildings and Cities, where I'm doing a project with NXP Semiconductors.

I love basketball, bikes, outdoor life, travelling, photography, and - last but not least - reading.

Community moderator on Electrical Engineering since August 2012.

Could you expand a bit on this answer?

comment What is the reverse of an Unsubscribe?
@Joe oh, then I'd say that in that case the user retains his registration and only changes the e-mail or notification subscription. Then toggling the "Subscribe" option seems the clearest way.

comment What is the reverse of an Unsubscribe?
I'm no expert, but it seems to me that if a user unsubscribes he wants to actually be removed from the system, not just blacklisted. One possible reason is security, for instance not wanting to be the target of spam attacks.

comment Systems and signals - integration with dirac's function and step function
Though it has to do with signals, this would be a better fit for math.SE in my opinion.

comment Microwave communication systems / data transfer rate vs data transfer speed
@what I meant is, if you ask this question it means you have found somewhere a suggestion that a difference may exist. If a company asked you to research this difference, I suppose they have at least a vague idea of what they mean with it. Also, if you took the task it means that you had an idea of what to look for, didn't you?

@vince can you give a reference of where you found the difference?

This a, b and c you get from the 4-wire interface? What signals can you actually access?

comment Easy-to-use Antennas for beginners
Note that GSM and GPS work in two different bands and therefore need different antennas.

comment What are the failure modes of resistors, inductors, capacitors, diodes, transistors in conditions of overvoltage or overcurrent?
The problem is not the overview itself, which could indeed be useful. The problem is that it's been proven to be inefficient on a site with this format. See this example to get my meaning. It was initially on the main site.

This is going to become really broad, I'm not sure it's a good shot. Also, the effects are not always the same, as the resistor could fail as open circuit or short circuit as well.

What is Vbe_on of the transistor? Is it ideal (0)?
