Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
A device that can both transmit and receive communications, in particular a combined radio transmitter and receiver.
- ‘In the past, Earth-based radio transceivers performed all these functions, limiting both the communication bandwidth and the navigation accuracy.’
- ‘This is creating a growing need for higher speed data communications transceivers to harvest the potential of these more powerful new technologies and next generation devices.’
- ‘By doing this, they eliminated much of the expense and complexity of a radio transceiver that has to convert a non-audible signal to a tone you can hear.’
- ‘Each mobile device communicates over the air with a fixed transceiver, which communicates with a server via landline.’
- ‘In order to communicate fast, most spies needed access to a radio transceiver.’
- ‘Each camera is equipped with a transceiver for receiving and sending data, and a display for observing the messages or listening to them.’
- ‘Military personnel were early users of electronic equipment operating in close proximity to radio transceivers.’
- ‘During a connection, radio transceivers hop from one channel to another.’
- ‘Satellites acting as depositories for digital cash would allow companies and individuals to move money anywhere, using computers or even handheld devices linked to satellite transceivers.’
- ‘Typically, a rig consists of a wireless radio transmitter used by the coach, and a wireless transceiver used by the speaker.’
- ‘Engineers also need to isolate elements such as radio transceivers that can interfere with delicate digital circuitry and add complex software that can deftly manage these multitaskers.’
- ‘When operating at 2GHz, this reduces noise to less than 1dB, and allows single-chip transceivers to carry out the transmit and receive requirements of the 3G system.’
- ‘The transceiver includes a receiver which can be selectively powered down whenever activity within the communication line ceases.’
- ‘The power supply provides a source of electrical energy for the cellular transceiver and the control circuitry.’
- ‘People just need to locate the whereabouts of a radio transceiver, which functions like a modem.’
- ‘Each of the slave nodes has an uplink transceiver and a downlink transceiver, with the downlink transceiver ordinarily isolated by switches from the common bus.’
- ‘These chips act as transponders (transmitters/responders), always listening for a radio signal sent by transceivers, or RFID readers.’
- ‘By the age of 9 myself and my younger brother were involved in constructing complex electronic devices such as radio transceivers.’
- ‘The transceiver also includes a transmitter with a third input port for receiving parallel data and a second output port for transmitting a serial data stream.’
- ‘The newly developed transceivers offer increased opportunities for broadband wireless video transmission throughout the home, office, and in commercial venues etc.’
