Synchronous data transmission

Definition “synchronous data transmission”

Synchronous data transmission in a wireless sensor networkSynchronous data transmission exists, when the data transfer between the transmitter and receiver is synchronized with a timing signal. Therefore, transmitter and receiver must have the same clock frequencies.

If there is no rigid phase relationship, it is called asynchronous data transfer.

Application in wireless sensor networks

In wireless sensor networks, the synchronous data transmission is used by the wireless sensor nodes to transmit sensor data synchronously to an access point so that the access point can collect the data from all sensors synchronously.

The synchronicity among the sensor nodes is at TEDIASENS systems only 1 µs standard deviation. Thus the TEDIASENS radio node system is perfectly suited to handle reliably a variety of measurement applications in industry and to transmit sensor data through synchronous data transmission wirelessly to the evaluation unit.
