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.
The automation of RF test systems—especially for the verification testing of wireless handsets and network devices—promises to save time while improving accuracy for common repetitive test configurations. RF switching matrix devices could be a critical aspect in improving the reliability factor of these setups....More
For reliable and efficient long-range RF communications, narrowband systems may be a prime choice. A comparison of spectral efficiency, coexistence, and battery lifetime between narrowband communications and coding-gain techniques could demonstrate narrowband technique’s superiority for certain applications....More
DARPA-funded research efforts have led to many discoveries and advancements in microwave-photonic components, such as electro-optic modulators, high-power photodiodes, low-noise laser diodes, and microwave photonic link configurations....More
Substantial tradeoffs arise when choosing between a narrowband or broadband architecture for radio deployments. These tradeoffs largely depend upon the requirements of the application and type of communications system, data rate, power specification, and range requirements....More
