For decades, scientists have tried to harness the unique properties of carbon nanotubes to create high-performance electronics that are faster or consume less power — resulting in longer battery life, faster wireless communication and faster processing speeds for devices like smartphones and laptops.
In a vision shared by innovators, entrepreneurs, and planners in both defense and civilian contexts, the skies of the future will be busy with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. recently announced that it has built a prototype wireless unit incorporating inter-subarray coding technology, which makes it possible to achieve high-speed transmissions, in excess of 10 Gbps, for 5G mobile wireless base stations and access points.
Diana Marculescu and Radu Marculescu have been awarded an NSF grant to develop a new paradigm for Big Data computing. Specifically, this project focuses on a new Datacenter-on-a-Chip (DoC) design consisting of thousands of cores that can run compute- and data-intensive applications more efficiently compared to existing platforms.

As high speed serial data rates advance from 15 Gb/s to beyond 50 Gb/s, we face a fundamental shift. Conventional logic-emulating NRZ (non-return to-zero) signaling is being replaced by PAM4, a 4-level pulse amplitude modulation scheme that takes half the bandwidth to transmit the same payload as the equivalent NRZ signal. This white paper assists in the understanding on how to use S-parameters, how to think of channel response and crosstalk in terms of S-parameters, and how to look for problems that could be caused by inaccurate S-parameter measurements.
Communication protocols are systems of digital message formats and rules for exchanging messages in or between computing systems and in telecommunications. Types of protocols include signaling, authentication, and error detection and correction. This white paper outlines the most relevant parameters that determine whether a connector and/or a cable assembly can withstand a defined data protocol.
The number of electronic, electrical, and communication systems and components have increased dramatically, which has also increased the desire for simulation driven processes at the early stages of the product design cycle. So will simulation replace measurements for EMC? No. EMC can still be used to help to significantly reduce the number of measurements and related costs during the development and validation phases.
This white paper presents a brief introduction on the antenna factor, how to create AF data, and how to use AF data.
This paper offers a cheat sheet to help understand the correlation of VSWR to the percentage of reflected power that will return.

To address the need for radio systems that can adapt to changing environments on the fly and that can be easily reconfigured once they’re in the field, our engineers have developed the innovative MATRICs (Microwave Array Technology for Reconfigurable Integrated Circuits) chip.
Using reflected radio frequency (RF) waves instead of typical on-body sensors, a radio device can analyze heartbeats and breathing patterns to detect human emotion quite accurately.
