Selectivity

A function of human perceptual processing which either consciously or unconsciously allows the brain to recognise signals or data from the environment. We ‘see`, ‘hear` etc what we want to.

selectivity

This is the ability of your receiver to sort out the useful signal from any crap that may be present. This is related to sensitivity, but it isn't the same thing.

selectivity

The discrimination shown by a reagent in competitive attack on two or more substrates or on two or more positions in the same substrate. It is quantitatively expressed by ratios of rate constants of the competing reactions, or by the decadic logarithms of such ratios.

Selectivity

In radio terms, selectivity is the ability of a radio to reject signals on frequencies adjacent to the desired station. It is usually expressed as a bandwidth measured at 6 dB rejection points ('6 dB down' or '-6 dB'). For example, a selectivity specification of '6 kHz at -6 dB' means any signal outside the 6 kHz bandwidth will be reduced in streng

Selectivity

[electronic] Selectivity is a measure of the performance of a radio receiver to respond only to the radio signal it is tuned to (such as a radio station) and reject other signals nearby in frequency, such as another broadcast on an adjacent channel. Selectivity is usually measured as a ratio in decibels (dBs), comparing the signal strength
