Introduction to adaptive arrays, Part 2 of 2 Design How-To 1/16/2011 Post a comment SciTech publishing has recently released a new book, Introduction to Adaptive Arrays, 2nd Edition, by Robert A. Monzingo, Randy Haupt, Thomas W. Miller, which addresses the subject of adaptive array sensor systems.
Advanced HMI technologies enable integrated automotive center console design Design How-To 1/14/2011 3 comments Incorporation of a multifunction console control panel allows HMI designers greater flexibility in styling as well as greater control over uniform look and feel. Such a design also reduces tooling charges and increases reliability. Because of overall integration and a reduce set of controls, these designs also reduce the total cost of systems.

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.
