Title: PARTICIPANT IN A DIGITAL COMMUNICATION SYSTEM, AND CORRESPONDING COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a participant (10) in a digital communication system (100) via which a first logic signal and a second logic signal are transmitted. The participant comprises an activation circuit (11) comprising a supply unit (12), a switching unit (13), a transmission unit (14), and a communication interface (15). The supply unit (12) is designed to provide an internal supply voltage, the switching unit (13) is designed to couple the supply unit (12) to the transmission unit (14) in order to supply the internal supply voltage to the transmission unit, and the transmission unit (14) is designed to output a wake-up signal to the communication interface (15) in response to being supplied with the internal supply voltage by the supply unit (12), said wake-up signal comprising at least the first logic signal, and to continuously output the second logic signal to the communication interface (15) following the output of the wake-up signal until the transmission unit (14) is separated from the supply unit (12) by the switching unit (13). The invention further relates to a communication system (100) which comprises the participant (10).
