Awards given to 35 Space Grant Consortiums targeted strong proposals for extending science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs at community colleges and technical colleges....More
Adding wireless technologies to control settings, charge, or actively control prosthetic limbs could lead to much more versatile and weather-proof prosthetic options for soldiers who were wounded in battle...More
Coaxial cables along with waveguides, twisted-pair, and micro-strip transmission lines, are used to carry electromagnetic signals from a few megahertz to hundreds of gigahertz with reasonably low signal degradation...More
Testing RF/microwave/millimeter-wave devices under a wide operation range for characterization can be time consuming and error prone. Fortunately, companies are forging software/hardware solutions to aid and even automate this process....More
The task of testing and characterizing RF/microwave/millimeter-wave devices is growing increasingly more complex and time consuming. These new devices need to be characterized so that statistical models can be developed for sophisticated system and circuit design software.
Automating the integrated assembly process can provide many cost and fabrication enhancing benefits. The increased consistency and material efficiency of automation also aids in producing more reliable assemblies.
As the design cycles accelerates, the use and reliance on software tools for modeling and simulation is increasing. Automated testing and manufacturing techniques are also used to meet ever-closer design deadlines....More
