A Drive-In Movie For The Vehicle Radar
A Drive-In Movie For The Vehicle Radar

Sensors in autonomous vehicles have to be extremely reliable, since in the future motorists will no longer constantly monitor traffic while underway. In the past these sensors were subjected to arduous road tests.

  • AI May Be Better For Detecting Radar Signals, Facilitating Spectrum Sharing
    AI May Be Better For Detecting Radar Signals, Facilitating Spectrum Sharing

    When vacationers buy a stake in a beachfront timeshare, they decide in advance who gets to use the property when. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is helping the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) institute a similar plan for when commercial wireless providers and the U.S. Navy attempt to share a desirable 150-megahertz (MHz)-wide section of the radio frequency (RF) spectrum for communications.

    Low-Cost EMI Pre-Compliance Testing Using A Spectrum Analyzer

    EMI regulations are in place to provide users with improved reliability and safety for users of electrical and electronic equipment. It is common today to perform pre-compliance measurements during the design and prototyping stages to identify and address potential EMI issues before the product is sent out for compliance testing. This application note provides an overview of EMI compliance testing, pre-compliance testing, and the measurement regulations, and presents test setups using the RSA306 and similar low cost products are used to perform both radiated and conducted emission measurements that can help minimize both the expense and schedule for getting products EMI certified.

Connectivity For Next-Generation Mobility

Powertrain electrification and automation are the key technology drivers that will ultimately lead to a new generation of all-electric, fully autonomous vehicles. At the same time, with the emergence of new business models, utilizing cloud and big data technologies, there will be a shift away from car ownership towards mobility services provided by new types of vehicle fleet operating companies. This white paper describes TE Connectivity’s vision for the next generation of mobility and its impact on vehicle architectures. It also shares how TE’s technology and portfolio address critical connectivity challenges the industry is experiencing.

Researchers Tune Into Simulation To Develop World’s Smallest TV Antenna

Television is considered one of the most important media of communication in Mexico. However, transmitting broadcast signals to some of the country’s remote areas can be challenging. That is why the Center for Research and Applied Sciences (CIICAp) at the University of Morelos, Mexico (UAEM), embarked on a project to improve antenna signal stability. This research resulted in a miniature antenna that could potentially bring TV broadcasting to remote, rural areas in developing countries, therefore making education, culture and entertainment available to populations that could not afford it otherwise.

Defense Or Civil Radar – It’s A Matter Of Wave Propagation

This white paper discusses the design challenges faced and the solutions available for today’s radar needs, both for defense and civil applications.

MIMO System Simulation In WinProp

This white paper presents and discusses practical examples of communication simulations involving MIMO technology. It also discusses two workflows existing for MIMO simulations and presents an example with relevant results for each.
