Bring Speed and Accuracy to 4-Port Models of 40-Gb/s Differential Structures Design How-To 3/9/2005 Post a comment Moving data at 40-Gb/s over copper is no longer a theoretical exercise; it has become a reality. For physical-layer structuresthe passive linear components, backplanes, IC packages, cables and connectorsare no longer the bottlenecks in high-speed digital systems. In this feature article, authors Jim Mayrand, Mike Resso of Agilent Technologies, and Dima Smolyansky of TDA Systems explore recent advances in 4-port instrumentation that now enable designers to accurately model 40-Gb/s dif
Optical receivers take the heat Product News 3/8/2005 Post a comment NEC introduces optical receiver modules designed for 10Gbits/s networks with the industry's highest heat tolerance and best-in-class sensitivity ratings for networks.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses?
