The way in which radio spectrum is currently allocated to different wireless technologies can lead to gross inefficiencies. In some regions, for instance, the frequencies used by cellphones can be desperately congested, while large swaths of the broadcast-television spectrum stand idle.LISTED UNDER: Frequency Multipliers | Services, Other

By Mark Forbes, Mentor Graphics Corporation As is well known, maximum RF coupling occurs when impedances on each side of the coupling match. A perfect match occurs when the impedances are identical and the Complex Matching Factor (CMF) is 0dB. When the CMF is 0db, the imaginary terms of the complex conjugate cancel, and the resistance is equal.
The security and privacy we have come to trust (primarily through wired networks) has quickly been disappearing, resulting in the requirement for a new form of network connection security. Wireless Ethernet tackled this problem not once, but twice. The second attempt, so far, looks to put an end to security problems “in-the-air” for Wi-Fi.
