  • Keep Military Pilots Safe With Towed Decoys

    Military pilots must be able to operate aircraft in very harsh environments. Towed decoys are one way to help them do that. From behind the aircraft, these products are designed to mimic a target, hence the term “towed decoy.” This diverts incoming ballistics away from the actual aircraft, and potentially increases pilot survivability rates – even in very hostile conditions.

  • IMS 2020 MicroApps: 60 GHz Phased Array Design Using XFdtd For WiGig

    In this video presentation, Remcom discusses analyzing and optimizing an aperture coupled 1x4 patch antenna array with a compact, fan-shaped feeding network for operation in 60 GHz band using Remcom’s full-wave electromagnetic simulation product, XFdtd. We also demonstrate superposition and antenna array optimization. The superposition simulation provides a means for checking the performance of individual elements in an array, each with a different input power and phase. The array optimization feature allows users to estimate the excitation for each element in the array for a specified EIRP. Further, the total spatial coverage of designed phased arrays will be accurately estimated. 

  • Designing A Practical 100GbE Real-Time Recording System For The Xilinx RFSoC

    The Xilinx RFSoC provides 100 Gigabit Ethernet optical ports for streaming data from its high-speed A/D converters. 100 Gigabit Ethernet is capable of streaming data at rates as high as 12.5 Gigabytes per second. In order to capture data at these very high rates, real-time recording systems require a major upgrade in their storage technology. NVME provides a new storage protocol and interface to accommodate exponentially higher streaming data rates than previous generation interfaces. This presentation will familiarize system design engineers with PC based real-time recording systems and the latest techniques for creating an NVME PCIe type recording system.
