Active Multi-Beam Antennas – Testing The Drivers For Advanced Satellite Concepts

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original https://spectrum.ieee.org/webinar/active_multi_beam_antennas_testing_the_drivers_for_advanced_satellite_concepts

Current trends in the satellite industry are high-throughput satellites and mega-constellations. The enabling technology in both trends are phased array antennas (PAA). This webinar examines the fundamentals of PAA, upcoming test challenges and how key antenna test parameters for active antennas need to be revised. In the second part, the webinar investigates how the test solutions by Rohde & Schwarz answer these challenges and how they guide and support you through the different development stages up to antennas in the field as part of terminals.

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original https://spectrum.ieee.org/whitepaper/cable_assemblies_determing_a_reliable_and_cost_effective_approach

Cable Assemblies

Cable assemblies fulfill an important role in high-density electronic systems. Often overlooked as ‘a couple of connectors and some cable’, these are in fact an essential element of modern engineering design and should not be underestimated.

In this paper, we outline the process of creating cable assemblies for application sectors requiring the highest levels of reliability, such as aerospace, defense, space and motorsport.

Optimize Power and Performance of your Chip using HLS

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original https://spectrum.ieee.org/whitepaper/optimize_power_and_performance_of_your_chip_using_hls

While machine learning algorithms and hardware has moved into the mainstream, designers have only skimmed the surface of what is possible. The complexity of the next-generation hardware and algorithms needed for tomorrow has already exceeded what can be done today. This means creating new power/memory efficient hardware architectures to meet these next-generation demands. This paper explains why only High-Level Synthesis can provide a reliable path to getting this done.

1000BASE-T1 Automotive Ethernet Compliance Testing

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original https://spectrum.ieee.org/webinar/1000_base_t1_automotive_ethernet_compliance_testing

This webinar will focus on 1000BASE-T1 automotive Ethernet compliance testing based on the Open Alliance (OA) TC8 specification for the physical layer. We will discuss the individual test cases for 1000BASE-T1 and look at the pitfalls that an engineer might encounter during test setup and execution.

For this video, we will be using a 2 GHz R&S®RTO oscilloscope, an 8 GHz R&S®ZND two-port VNA as well as the R&S®ScopeSuite automated test software.

Team Sonnenwagen Prep for Race Across the Outback

Post Syndicated from Harwin original https://spectrum.ieee.org/energy/environment/team_sonnenwage_prep_for_race_across_the_outback

Harwin’s Interconnect Guru caught up with the team from RWTH Aachen University as they prepared to embark on a journey across the globe, travelling from North West Germany to Darwin Australia for the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.

What is their motivation and what lessons they’ve learnt from last year that will help them to gain a pole position?

 “Climate change and resource depletion are threatening our civilization and emphasize the importance of developing renewable energy alternatives. Our intention with Sonnenwagen is not only to bring these two issues to light, but also show the potential of efficient solar technology. If you speak to any team member, they’ll say they want to be a part of a real-world application that promotes an environmentally-friendly renewable approach.

All of us are looking to make the most of our time in university and being involved in a project combating climate change and helping protect the planet is very rewarding.”

“The aerodynamics are vital. We spent 18 months performing computational fluid dynamics simulations and carried out multiple wind tunnel tests to determine the optimal design, while still considering chassis structure. Simulations were also done on various carbon fiber-reinforced composites and geometries. Data from all of these activities was then compiled to create a final digital prototype.”

Learn the Latest Standards and Test Requirements for Automotive Radar

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original https://spectrum.ieee.org/webinar/learn_the_latest_standards_and_test_requirements_for_automotive_radar

Automotive radar is a key enabler for autonomous driving technology, and it is one of the key areas for new modulation technologies. Unlike wireless communication technologies, there are no regulations and definitions for modulation type, signal pattern, and duty cycle for automotive radar.  

This webinar addresses which standards apply to radar measurements and how to measure different radar signals using Keysight’s automotive radar test solution.

Key learnings:

  • How to set the right parameters for different chirp rates and duty cycle radar signals for power measurements.  
  • Learn how to test the Rx interference of your automotive radar.  
  • Understand how to use Keysight’s automotive test solution to measure radar signals.

Physical Modeling of Supercapacitors and Lithium-Ion Capacitors

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original https://spectrum.ieee.org/webinar/physical_modeling_of_supercapacitors_and_lithium-ion_capacitors


While lithium-ion batteries are the dominant rechargeable devices visible to the public and in the headlines, other electrochemical energy storage technologies will have a complementary role in industrial decarbonization. Supercapacitors, also called electrochemical double-layer capacitors, typically store less energy than lithium-ion batteries, but allow rapid delivery of very high power with high cycling stability. Researchers are increasingly exploring new hybrid devices, such as lithium-ion capacitors (LIC), which can exploit features of both traditional supercapacitors and lithium-ion batteries.
