We get rid of “unnecessary” equipment

The cable system of small offices, as a rule, has only a horizontal subsystem SCS, since the office itself is usually located on one floor. Standards provide for the horizontal subsystem SCS the presence of floor cross. Horizontal cables diverge from floor crossings to workplace outlets. Recently, in almost all newly installed office networks, Fast Ethernet 100Base TX technology has been used, which places high demands on the parameters of the cable system. Continue reading

The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part4)
Our main goal was not to change anything during the production process, and to solve the problem of how to place electrons on a floating shutter. Initially, we abandoned the…
