Explanation: The extremely high and super high frequency bands are used for satellite communication.

A process is essentially a running software. The execution of a process must proceed in a logical order. To put it another way, we write our computer programmes in a text file, and when we run them, they turn into a process that completes all of the duties specified in the programme. W is a positive definite weighing matrix that is the inverse of the input vector’s covariance matrix. Two approaches for identifying timing errors are early late timing error detection and zero crossing timing error detection.
