Jong Nang 3-Input NOR Channel,

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 176)


In this paper, we introduce the root of digital human binary coded Jong Nang communications as the wooden gate in Korea Jeju Island custom, has been using after about 1234 years. We compare the digital logic with modern traffic signal codes and analysis of both cases. Shannon channel capacity of the Jong Nang are 3 input NOR and binary erasure multiple access channel. Jong Nang communications is normal 3 rafters placed on two vertical stones with three holes to convey the family’s whereabouts that is deterministic signal, nowadays it is applied to backhaul in mobile base station.
