This construction allows the PCA15SR to be used alone as a medium gain antenna or combined with other panels to form a larger phased array....

Tackling Heavyweight DSP Design with Application-Level Math Circuits

January 31, 2005 10:19 am | Product Releases | Comments

By innovating at a higher level of abstraction, DSP designers not only can meet their system performance requirements but also can reduce power consumption, minimize product cost, shorten product development schedules, and lower management's risk in time-to-market. By Dr. Tony Curzon Price Emerging wireless standards such as 801....

Bluetooth Development Platform

January 13, 2005 8:57 am | Product Releases | Comments

The BlueMagic Host API or BHAPI Bluetooth Development Platform (BDP) from OI partitions the Bluetooth implementation into a server that can be treated as a black box and a client that can be implemented in 100's of lines of code. Application developers no longer need to be proficient in Bluetooth and can rapidly integrate Bluetooth functionality into their designs....
