Theres a nice piece about her here . . . http://www.npr.org/2011/11/27/142664182/most-beautiful-woman-by-day-inventor-by-night And her character also makes an occasional appearance in Nitrozac's comic Strips 'After y2k' and 'The Joy Of tech' :) - Seems she was a lot more 'geek' than actress, and when the Germans started targeting passenger liners, she felt the need to contribute and make something...

This is a great article, I've worked with FHSS for may years, had no idea it had originated with a mechanical system implementation. Tom http://www.mitydsp.com

Bravo! I love the idea that the Navy thought each system required a piano! But... "That's HEDLEY!" :) Brad Wood

While studying electrical engineering, the story of Tesla inventing rotating magnetic field told by our professor teaching electrical machines fascinated me. Since then Tesla is my hero and I believe in the same as you have told.

I just the fact that Tesla was in on this from the beginning! Tesla was so far ahead of his time that we still don't understand a number of things that he did. Nice article!

Nice summary.I used to teach spread spectrum technology and used the Hedy Lamarr link to awaken slumbering students. I became intrigued and wrote a book on the inventors and the technology. Like you I found lots of prior art and pondered on the real contribution of the Secret Communication System to current frequency hopping. I did miss Zenneck’s book Wireless Telegraphy (English version) in my searches which is pity. My book is called 'Spread Spectrum: Hedy Lamarr and the mobile phone.

This is a very good finding, may be as Sahrps_eng is pointing there will be many hidden application and ideas like this will be there, if found that as well can be shared and discussed, but this is a very nice match that very well simulates the FHSS.

You couldn't write this stuff! I think that there are many fascinating revelations to be made when comparing history as written by say, the Germans, French and Americans. In many cases patents were independently awarded for the same things in different countries, there was no Internet to Google in those days. How many opportunities are missed because today's English speakers can't access the work of Hungarians, Japanese and Chinese scientists and engineers? Even now many don't bother to translate work into English, so we only get to see information filtered through the marketing channel. Imagine if the only way people knew about us was by reading EET?

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
