Science Fair Judges Needed

by @ 3:45 pm. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering

Science fair season is coming up, providing an opportunity for students from middle schools and high schools to show their projects and hear comments from professionals like you. Traditionally, the IEEE has provided both prizes and judges for local fairs and we need your help once again. We especially want practitioners in bio-engineering, but all disciplines are welcome.
We are supporting several science fairs:

Editorial: “All the Toys”

by @ 3:39 pm. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering, Communications, Computers/Software, Electrical/Power, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, NanoEngineering, Optics/Displays, Semiconductors

From the editor . . .

So, did you get all the electronic toys you wanted for Christmas? I know that electronics was one of the hottest gift categories this year!

Yes, itâ??s neat to have some of these gadgets, but I also enjoy simply marveling at what the designers are doing in consumer electronics. The iPhone was one such device â?? my niece (12 years old!) received one, and the next day (more…)

Mtg: Design and Measurement of Coaxial-to-Planar Transitions to 110GHz and Beyond

by @ 3:29 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Semiconductors

THURSDAY January 10
SCV Microwave Theory and Techniques Chapter
Speaker: Ajaiey Sharma, Anritsu
Time: Refreshments at at 6:00 PM, Presentation at 6:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: National Semiconductor, Building 9, Classroom 4, 2900 Semiconductor Dr, Santa Clara
RSVP: not required


The transition from coax to a planar circuit is often one of the more difficult areas to both design and to manufacture. ? The coax involved is typically the back-end of a connector, but can also be a coaxial cable.? (more…)

Mtg: License-Free Wireless ISPs (WISPs) and the Challenges of FCC Part 15 Certification

by @ 3:28 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Semiconductors

TUESDAY January 8
SCV Electromagnetic Compatibility Chapter
Speaker: Jack Unger, Ask-Wi.Com, Inc. (formerly Wireless InfoNet, Inc.)
Time: Social at 5:30 PM, Presentation at 6:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: Applied Materials Bowers Cafeteria, 3090 Bowers Ave., Santa Clara
RSVP: not required


The FCC mandates that Part 15 license-free wireless equipment be tested and FCC certified, yet many wireless ISPs (WISPs) assemble at least some of their equipment in-house. ? Join us on January 8th when Jack Unger, President of, Inc. and member of the Wireless ISP Association (WISPA) (more…)

Mtg: An Open Baseband Processing Architecture for Future Mobile Terminal Design

by @ 3:27 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Semiconductors

MONDAY January 7
SCV Signal Processing Chapter
Speaker: Prof. Willie W. Lu, U.S. Center for Wireless Communications
Time: Fast Food & drinks at 6:30 PM, Presentation at 7:00 PM
Cost: $2 toward refreshments
Place: National Semiconductor (north end of Building E), Santa Clara
RSVP: not required


The future wireless and mobile communications will be shifted from the traditional transmission-specific technology to the interface-specific technology to be able to converge with the computer system architecture.? The Open Wireless Architecture (OWA) technology offers an optimal solution (more…)
