A Time-Domain-Based Technique for Noise Measurements News & Analysis 12/14/2001 Post a comment Although electronic noise is often a critical design parameter in an analog system, evaluation of noise performance of circuits that perform a frequency translation from RF to baseband is not easy to do. Torben Larsen and colleagues from Aalborg University in Denmark describe a time-domain-based technique to determine the noise factor of a device with a low desired output frequency.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and 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? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
