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.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
