Meister : Flow monitors are designed for dirty fluids Product News 4/23/2009 Post a comment Meister Stroemungstechnik introduces flow monitors designed to monitor dirty fluids. The RMU series’ hexagonal float is less sensitive to particles compared to cylindrical floats, which creates a small and constant circular orifice with the housing of the flowmeter.

From math to reality: the story of memristors Signal Processing DesignLine Blog 4/3/2009 Post a comment Being able to see and resolve the nature of things through a kaleidoscope of mathematical equations is a gift that few of us have. Sure, most engineers have a 'knack' for math. Many of us even enjoy it and spend many hours noodling over arcane matrices, integrals and differentials. But how many truly view the world as a set of math equations?
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
