A new system devised by researchers at MIT can monitor the behavior of all electric devices within a building, ship, or factory, determining which ones are in use at any given time and whether any are showing signs of an imminent failure. When tested on a Coast Guard cutter, the system pinpointed a motor with burnt-out wiring that could have led to a serious onboard fire.
Researchers at Delft University of Technology have created a quantum circuit that enables them to listen to the weakest radio signal allowed by quantum mechanics. This new quantum circuit opens the door to possible future applications in areas such as radio astronomy and medicine (MRI).
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.
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.
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.
This white paper discusses the design challenges faced and the solutions available for today’s radar needs, both for defense and civil applications.
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.
A fully integrated high-performance cross-correlation signal source analyzer from 5 MHz to 40 GHz
The model 7000 series Signal Source Analyzers are particularly well suited for conducting phase noise and jitter measurement in VCXOs, TCXOs, and OCXOs. Unlike some traditional systems, they have the ability to analyze both absolute and additive phase noise.
