Wireless under the skin!

September 7, 2006 12:29 pm | by Farhad Mafie | Product Releases | Comments

From implanting a passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) microtransponder under the skin to implanting an active drug-delivery system in human bodies, various types of wireless technologies are being used or being implemented in new products to further improve some of the ongoing challenges within the healthcare industry –that eventually would result in overall better patient care....

Increasing Features and Reliability in Wireless Mobile Devices

September 7, 2006 11:45 am | Wireless Design & Development | Product Releases | Comments

Remember when the mobile phone was called a bag phone? This was a major accomplishment at the time. Then manufacturers began the miniaturization of the phone and they became smaller than a cigarette pack. The size reduction drove the market for new phone sales. People changed phones every two years so they would have the smallest device....

Channel Emulation for Improved MIMO Product Design

September 7, 2006 5:24 am | Product Releases | Comments

By Jeff Abramowitz and Graham Celine MIMO technology will be the foundation for the next generation of Wi-Fi products. Whereas existing 802.11 devices use a single transmitter and single receiver, known as SISO, next generation 802.11n devices will use MIMO to leverage multiple transmit and receive antennas, delivering higher throughput (more megabits per second) and greater range (more distance between AP and client)....

Part 2: TD-SCDMA —3G technology whose time has come and Receiver Design and Integrated Solutions

September 7, 2006 5:24 am | Product Releases | Comments

By Thomas Barber, Aiguo Yan and Zoran Zvonar Receiver design is the most difficult task in the development of the UE since it carries the most complexity in the overall UE implementation. Multiple users in LCR are multiplexed via their assigned OVSF codes, however the orthogonality among different code channels is not preserved due to the delay spread in the multipath channel and the received signal at the input of the UE is subject to M...
