RSVP: not required

Ferrite materials have long played an important role in power conditioning, conversion, and generation across a wide spectrum of frequencies (up to 10 decades). They remain the preferred magnetic materials, having suitably low losses, for most applications above 1 MHz, and are the only viable materials for nonreciprocal magnetic microwave and millimeter wave devices (including tunable filters, isolators, phase shifters, and circulators). Recently, novel processing techniques have lead to a resurgence of research interest (more…)

9/17: Transceiver Designs for Multicarrier Transmission

by @ 11:32 am. Filed under ALL, Communications, Electronics Design, Semiconductors

MONDAY September 17
SCV Communications, with Circuits & Systems, Signal Processing

Time: Presentation at 6:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: National Semiconductor, Building E, Conference Room, 2900 Semiconductor Dr, Santa Clara
RSVP: not required

The multicarrier transceiver has found applications in a wide range of wired or wireless transmission channels.? It is typically called DMT (discrete multitone) for wired DSL (digital subscriber loops) applications such as ADSL (asymmetric DSL) and VDSL (very high-speed DSL), and called OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) for wireless LAN (local area network) and broadcasting applications (more…)

RSVP: not required

“Nanotechnology” will solve every materials, electronics and biology problem we have, according to some of the latest techno-hype.? Or destroy the world with self-replicating nano-robots, predicts popular fiction.? We will take a look at what is real, what is not real, and what may never be real (more…)
