Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original

The right measurement applications can increase the functionality of your signal analyzer and reduce your time to insight with ready-to-use measurements, built-in results displays, and standards conformance tests. They can also help ensure consistent measurement results across different teams and your design cycle. This efficiency means you can spend less time setting up measurements and more time evaluating and improving your designs. Learn about general-purpose or application-specific measurements that can help save you time and maintain measurement consistency in this eBook.

How to Reduce the Bill of Material Costs with Digital Signal Processing

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original

The need to decrease the bill of material (BOM) costs in embedded products is being driven by the need for high volume, low-cost sensor systems. As IoT devices become more sophisticated, they require developers to utilize digital signal processing (DSP) to handle more features within the product, such as device provisioning.

In this paper, we will examine how DSP can be used to reduce a product’s cost.

You will learn:

  • The technology trends moving data processing to the edge of the network to enable more compute performance
  • The benefits of digital signal processing, including decreased product dimensions, product flexibility, shorter design cycle, and in-field adaptability
  • How to convert analog circuits to software using modeling software such as MathWorks MATLAB or Advanced Solutions Nederlands (ASN) filter designer
  • How to select the right DSP processor solution to benefit from reduced BOM costs
  • The capabilities and features of the Arm Cortex-M processors with DSP extensions to help you get your signal processing application running as quickly as possible

Artificial Intelligence in Software Defined SIGINT Systems

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original

As wireless protocols grow more complex, spectrum environments become more contested and electronic warfare increases in sophistication.

Read how you can combine artificial intelligence and deep learning with commercial off-the-shelf software-defined radio hardware to train algorithms.

You can teach them to detect new threats faster, reduce development risk and support burden, and deploy in signals intelligence and spectrum monitoring scenarios limited by SWaP (size, weight, and power).

Understanding ADC Bits

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original

Did you know your oscilloscope’s effective number of bits (ENOB) is just as important as the number of ADC bits? ADC bits is one of the most widely known specifications. Many engineers rely on this as the sole specification that determines an oscilloscope’s quality. However, the importance of ADC bits is often exaggerated while other critical indications of signal integrity get pushed to the background. Learn about the major impacts ENOB has on your measurements.


A Guide to Computational Storage

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original

To be successful in this increasingly digital world, organizations need the infrastructure and technology to be capable of delivering and storing data and analytics in a fast, secure and efficient way.

Computational storage enables organizations to create customer value by maximizing the benefits of big data. It puts processing power directly on the storage device, giving companies quick and easy access to vital information.

This easy-to-read guide provides an introduction to computational storage and its benefits, walking through real-world examples of how it’s deployed today and what to consider when implementing it in your device. 

Read this guide to learn: 

  • What is computational storage and how it works
  • The benefits it brings to architects, developers and organizations
  • How to move from a traditional storage solution to a more intelligent device
  • Real-world examples from Arm’s partners

Nonlinear Magnetic Materials Modeling Webinar

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original

In this webinar, you will learn how to model ferromagnetic materials and other nonlinear magnetic materials in the COMSOL® software.

Ferromagnetic materials exhibit saturation and hysteresis. These factors are major challenges in the design of electric motors and transformers because they affect the iron loss. In addition, the loss of ferromagnetic properties at elevated temperatures (Curie temperatures) is an important nonlinear multiphysics effect in, for example, induction heating. It can also cause permanent material degradation in permanent magnet motors.

This webinar will demonstrate how to build high-fidelity finite element models of ferromagnetic devices using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The presentation concludes with a Q&A session.
