Re : ADC Basics (Part 1): Does your ADC work in the real world?
Delta-sigma converters are capable of producing output bit ranges from 16 to 24, which in and of itself is impressive.

I think one of the major disadvantages of Delta-Sigma ADC is that the bandwidth is very small compared to Pipelined ADC hence more used in audio related applications.

Sphere of Influence
One way to build contacts and generate leads is through a real estate sphere of influence (SOI) business model. This networking strategy focuses on generating real estate leads through the people you already know, including your family, friends, classmates, business associates, sports team members, and even vendors (like your doctor and hair stylist). The best way to keep track of all the names and contact information is in one place, such as in a spreadsheet program (such as Excel), your email's contacts database or with commercial software.

Once you have established your SOI database, it is easy to add contacts as you meet people – at community events, thru mutual acquaintances or by any other means. The more people you have on your list, the larger your SOI and the better your chances for a referral. Plan on sending out a "new agent" announcement – through the mail, phone, email, text or any combination catered to each type of contact – when you begin your career, as well as periodic updates and shout-outs to keep your SOI thinking about you and your real estate services.

Developing a Professional Image
Developing and maintaining a professional presence is vital to your success as a real estate agent. Your image is projected through your:

Appearance – tidy clothing, hair, accessories, makeup. Should be appropriate for your office and local market. Avoid perfume/cologne and revealing clothing (i.e., nothing too tight, too short or too low cut).
Face-to-face meetings – good eye contact, positive body language. Strive to be attentive, engaging and courteous.
Marketing and advertising materials –quality photos and accurate, compelling text. Should be free of grammatical and spelling mistakes.
Phone calls – articulate, engaging and courteous.
Web presence – carefully planned Web site, engaging social media. Should be free of grammatical errors and spelling mistakes.
Written communications – well-written letters, emails and texts free of grammatical errors and spelling mistakes.
It is important to note that any presence you have on the Internet – whether for your business or personal life – lasts forever and can easily find its way to your potential clients. Therefore, it is judicious to work toward a professional image both in and out of your real estate career.

Utilizing Tools and Technology
Going hand-in-hand with developing a professional image is utilizing tools and technology. Today's agents can use a number of tools to help organize and promote their real estate businesses, including:

Contact Management
Keeping track of your clients is a must. You can go basic with a spreadsheet program or an email database program such as Outlook's, or you can invest in database software designed specifically for real estate professionals. Commercial products offer a number of useful features, including automated contact synchronization to your smart phone. No matter how you keep track of your contacts, keep the list current – updating, adding and deleting contacts as appropriate.
