A team of Stanford University researchers are on a mission to identify dark matter once and for all. But first, they’ll need to build the world’s most sensitive radio.
The National Science Foundation and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency have selected Northeastern University to run a massive data center that will enable researchers around the country to build and test the next generation of wireless technology and find new ways to use artificial intelligence to shape the smart devices of the future.
Something exciting is happening in the service representative community. Representatives from three different programs, one from each of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) services, have come together with a common objective to solve their respective acquisition problems with an agreed upon, open architecture standard. Here is the final part of a 3-part article covering the SOSA (Sensor Open System Architecture) Consortium’s efforts.
5G promises a spectacular world of wireless communications systems. It presents lucrative opportunities in consumer electronics, internet-of-things (IoT), advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), telecommunications, entertainment, medical, transportation and other sectors. This white paper addresses the complexity of designing various points in these kinds of systems, and discusses how ANSYS products are a possible solution to design and simulate antenna systems, antenna-to-antenna coupling, environmental effects on signal propagation as well as V2V and V2X communication for traditional and autonomous vehicles.
While direction finding for navigation purposes is becoming less important, there is a growing demand for determining the location of emitters as the mobility of communications equipment increases. The importance of direction finding lies in the fact that spread-spectrum techniques are increasingly used for wireless communications. This means that the spectral components can only be allocated to a specific emitter if the direction is known. Direction finding is therefore an indispensable first step in radio-detection, particularly since reading the contents of such emissions is usually impossible.
Modern day vehicle interactivity takes place on the centrally placed touchscreen head unit display (HUD) on the car dashboard and their infotainment systems have become a central hub for a wide range of vehicular functionality. These systems provide driver entertainment and information by integrating different functions. Examples include in-vehicle connectivity with wireless devices and connecting with external communications, transmission, radio and satellite network providers. This article discusses the challenges of functionality testing in automotive infotainment devices and presents a test and measurement solution.
If you are looking to buy a new wireless networking gear or a mobile device, you may be overwhelmed by too many choices and abbreviations. Since Wi-Fi was first released to consumers in 1997, its standards have been continually evolving – typically resulting in faster speeds and network/spectrum efficiency – and it can be difficult to keep track of new standards. This paper is meant to help you understand the basics of Wi-Fi standards, and provides and overview of the evolution of Wi-Fi technologies.
NuWaves Engineering offers the NuFilter™ series of cavity filters designed for applications operating within the 1 GHz to 20 GHz frequency range. Options for standard and custom models include 3 dB bandwidths from 3% to 28%, stop-band rejections of 80 dB, insertion losses of < 1 dB, and up to 50 W power handling (higher power ratings available upon request).
FEKO, Altair’s comprehensive electromagnetic simulation software suite, can be used in electronic virtual prototyping and simulation driven designs, including antenna design for many products such as mobile phones, tablets, cameras, laptops, and TVs. The software can eliminate weak antenna designs and reduce the number of prototypes with its proof of concept and comparative studies. Pre-compliance of over-the-air (OTA) radiation performance and specific absorption rate (SAR) can be estimated for the standalone device, or for different usage environments.

Our engineer takes you into the features, benefits and markets for the new AR-5010 amplifier. The AR-5010 is a class A amplifier designed with optimized performance to support linearly modulated, multi-carrier waveforms with high crest factors. The AR-5010 is a part of AR Modular RF’s AR-5000 Series which is the next generation of wide-band, Class A/AB linear amplifier designed for use with modern digital modulations.
Digital Phosphorus Technology, or DPX, is a Tektronix patented acquisition mode that performs the hardware DSP processing and rasterizing of the samples into pixel information in order to reveal a greater amount of signal detail. It gives a truly “live” view of the RF signals, with its color-grading feature allowing users to see different signals at the same frequency yet separated by either time or power levels. In this video, DPX is demonstrated and reveals signals that your old spectrum analyzer might be hiding from you. You can literally see signals hidden beneath other signals!
