    Hyundai MOBIS, an automotive group affiliated with Hyundai Motor Group, produces a range of core automotive components and products for Hyundai and Kia companies, and other auto makers worldwide. In this case study, Hyundai MOBIS planned to better understand and improve the effectiveness of shielding enclosures that protect against illumination from both external fields and EM leakage from electronic products in the presence of apertures and slots used to accommodate visibility, ventilation, and access to interior components.

Using Altair FEKO To Facilitate Development Of The World’s Smallest TV Antenna

In Mexico and many other countries, television has become one of the most important forms of communication. The challenge usually comes down to the successful transmission of signals to more remote areas, especially indoors. At the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos (UAEM), Dr. Tecpoyotl’s team of students and researchers have developed an antenna that is miniaturized into a smaller footprint, while improving signal stability. This case study presents the success that the university had using Altair’s FEKO to facilitate the development of the world’s smallest TV antenna.

Different Techniques For EM Design And Verification Of Large And Complex Structures: Industrial Case Studies

New technologies in sensor design (AESA), and the need for integrated structure design to meet increasingly stringent RCS requirements, require a new approach to the problem, and the development of dedicated tools for analysis and processing. IDS addressed these problems with consulting activities leading to the development of dedicated solvers, procedures, and processors suitable for EM modeling of large and complex structures. In this presentation, IDS’ capabilities will be demonstrated in a naval environment case study which has been extended to other application areas.

5G In Perspective: A Pragmatic Guide To What’s Next

The world’s communications and other connected technologies are evolving rapidly toward 5G in the hope of bringing about new and exciting solutions for deep learning, artificial intelligence, and “ambient awareness.” While these applications all share an LTE backbone, there are different requirements driving unique solutions, which broadens the LTE content space. LTE is the best global, scalable, and secure communications network capable of providing individuals, communities, corporations, governments and countries with tools to grow their own innovative platforms and initiatives. This paper examines the current state of LTE networks and the ways it could evolve to deliver a gigabit-per-second user experience, especially within emerging 5G systems.

Multicast ABR, DVB-S2X, GSE, Time Slicing: Enabling Cost Effective Delivery Of Live Video Streams Via Satellite

Many satellites are used to provide infrastructure for live broadcasting to large geographical areas. However, the bandwidth resources are expensive and unfit for delivering unicast content, which requires resources that grow linearly with the number of users, making the use of satellites seem an impractical solution. This, however, is not true with the latest satellite transmission progress (DVB-S2X and its ingredients) and a multicast approach. This white paper explains how satellites may be used to deliver live content to a wide range of connected devices in a way that is transparent to the existing components through the use of to Broadpeak’s technologies and TeamCast’s up-to-date features of satellite products.
