Women in Microwaves: A Closer Look
Despite efforts to bring more women into engineering, the numbers show only a slight increase. To provide some insight into this issue, some of the stars of the “Women in Microwaves” panel at this year’s IMS share their experiences, advice, and perspectives.
Gallery: Seen and Heard at IMS 2016
This year’s Microwave Week is in full swing at the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco, where the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) is clearly the main attraction.
How Do You Stack Up?
Welcome to this year’s annual compensation survey. In surveying our audience across our family of brands, we found a number of similar findings.
This Is Your Brain on IoT
As more of our infrastructure becomes connected and interactive, the U.S. and many other countries are expected to graduate from in-depth patient tracking and monitoring to diagnosis and health maintenance.
Microwave Legends
Through innovation and invention, these people, places, and things have shaped the microwave industry.
The IMS 2015 Checklist 1
It’s that time of year again. For those in the microwave and RF industry, the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS)—with all of its conferences, workshops, trade show, and exhibition offerings—is something we look forward to all year long.
Reaching that Last Mile
If Google is successful in providing Internet services to the non-served “last mile,” the firm may gain a greater hand in the telecommunications and related businesses.
M&A Deals Jumpstart IoT
With the Internet of Things (IoT) in place, devices will be so interconnected that they will open communications between ourselves and our homes, appliances, cars, medical devices, and more.
Before Embracing the Future, Secure Today 1
We’re at the dawn of an exciting new age in which everything will be connected—homes, cars, and more. The question is whether it will be secure.
Get with the Times, Barbie
Everyone knows that Barbie has been just about everything career-wise in her decades of existence (despite her impossible proportions and oddly angled feet). Having had rather rare professions, such as being an astronaut, it should be an easy leap for her to be an engineer.
Don’t Trust that Tower
Rogue cell towers have been linked to potential national security breaches.
Cascade Microtech: Robust Calibrated Measurement at Frequencies from 140 GHz to 1.1 THz
Millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength on-wafer probes and associated accessories for metrology-grade measurement of devices and materials with frequencies from 140 GHz to 1.1 THz. The probes offer low insertion loss, as well as excellent probe tip and sample visibility. Probe stations can be configured with programmable positioners to allow automated and repeatable sub-micron positioning during TRL calibration to ensure the highest precision at the probe tip.
Cascade Microtech: Wafer-level Measurement Solution for Device Characterization up to 110 GHz
Guaranteed configuration, installation and support in a pre-validated system configuration for accurate and repeatable wafer-level device characterization. This is essential for device modeling, technology development, process development and specification, process monitoring, component specification and pilot manufacturing.
Cascade Microtech: Cost-effective Precision 150 mm Probe System for mmW
The EPS150MMW is a dedicated manual probing solution that comes with everything you need to achieve accurate measurement results in the shortest time, with maximum confidence. The system incorporates best-known methods for probing up to sub-THz frequencies. The backlash-free, high-precision X-Y-Z movement of mmW and RF positioners, integrated planarization, and a contact separation drive with 1 μm repeatability, enable precise probe placement and contact repeatability comparable to semi-automatic systems.
Technology Gives Back
For all of the amazing breakthroughs that have taken place in recent years, prosthetics still owe a great deal to some very old technological advancements.
