hey everbody! I just picked up a jap dreamcast for Â£30 (no bad!) I want to ask a few questions about it. It has a removable plastic bit where the modem should be, anyone know what that is? And how do I recharge the battery?
The purpose of a terminator is to stop certain anomalies from occuring in transmission. This has to do with providing a connection to ground with an impedance matched to the characteristic impedance of the bus. I've been told that this is essentially the same thing as making the transmission line infinitely long from a transmission theory standpoint. I've never studied transmission theory so I don't really understand how this works. Presumably the modem and BBA terminate the bus also.
