When a distributed antenna system (DAS) is designed incorrectly, it results in degraded performance, unnecessary cost increases, and dangerous conditions for emergency communications. This article provides the six best practices for achieving the most efficient radio frequency (RF) coverage distribution when designing an in-building DAS.
For many engineers, choosing a new oscilloscope can be daunting — there are hundreds of different models to choose from with widely varying costs and specifications. This article guides you through the maze of considerations and will help you avoid making what could prove to be an expensive mistake.
In any given year, Imec's patent group receives about 300 invention report sheets, resulting in more than 100 patents per year. These are the documents that their researchers complete when they are convinced that they have found a unique solution. Bob Verbruggen is a regular visitor to that patent group, having written 15 invention reports in less than 10 years. In this article, he talks about his work on analogue-to-digital convertors (ADCs) and his most recent invention — the stochastic ADC.
