Cables not only transfer the power needed to run electrical equipment, but also the data signals needed to operate them. To prevent errors and device failures, the same attention must be paid to the choice and installation of the cabling as is paid to the rest of the system.
Now in its 11th year, the FEKO Student Competition is open to all under-graduates and post-graduates who work on a supervised project in electromagnetic engineering and make use of FEKO. This annual competition is organised to give students an opportunity to showcase their work.
Piconics Inc. and Modelithics Inc. have collaborated to upgrade the previous Piconics conical inductor S-parameter models to full equivalent circuit models, now offering substrate scalability/selectability, series and shunt configurations, and broadband validation up to as high as 65 GHz for some configurations. These models represent the first comprehensive, measurement-based equivalent circuit models for conical inductors in the Modelithics Library.
AWR Corp. announces the addition of two new stories to its roster of university student and professor design successes using AWR software. These new stories include contributions from Okinawa National College of Technology in Japan and Macquarie University in Australia.
EHX is the only real-time EMC and EMI diagnostic tool that enables them to test ultra-high speed (> 2GHz) PCBs their lab-bench. With EHX, Wi-Fi designers and manufacturers can for example conduct tests and debug EMC and signal integrity problems up to the third harmonic.
Answering the growing need for smartphone and tablet applications that update seamlessly, Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) announces a truly wireless solution with a unique over-the-air-download (OTA or OAD) feature in its BLE-Stack™ 1.3 software for use with the CC2540 and CC2541 Bluetooth low energy system-on-chips (SOCs). Single-mode Bluetooth® low energy or Bluetooth Smart is increasing in popularity because it allows consumers to connect to their smartphones and tablets to automotive, home office, medical and health, sports and fitness as well as mobile and PC accessories.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, announced the sponsorship of two major student design competitions in China as part of the company’s continuing focus on working with universities worldwide to empower students with RF/microwave software tool experience and jumpstart their engineering careers.
For its first year, the EDI CON organizers relied on their experience as editors of Microwave Journal and Microwave Journal China to put together a technical program that had something for mostly everyone involved in high-frequency electronic design and system integration. The latest systems of interest from space (GNSS) to 4G (TD-LTE) to very close (Near-Field Communications) are being represented in the technical tracks and workshops.
