Efficient Near-Field to Far-Field Transformation Techniques for Antenna Measurements Design How-To 3/1/2002 Post a comment Fernando Las-Heras of the Universidad Politcnica de Madrid, Ciudad Universitaria, and T.K. Sarkar of Syracuse University propose a new technique for Near-Field to Far-Field transformation for antenna measurements, using an equivalent current representation with a matrix-method solution. With this technique, the authors have obtained accuracy comparable to standard wave transformation methods.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
