    The short message service (SMS) is one of GSM's best kept secrets. The basic idea is straightforward: by 'stealing' slots in the GSM signalling channel the SMS allows mobile phones, together with PCs and laptops connected to GSM phones, to exchange text messages of up to 160 characters. One of the constraints on the wider use of the SMS is the limit of 160 characters on the length of the message. ... View full abstract»

    Hardware in the loop simulation (HILS) as a means of testing control system electronics is not new-the aerospace industry has been using this technique ever since software first became a safety-critical aspect of flight control systems. As pressure on development time and costs increases, the author describes how the increasingly popular solution is the use of computer simulations to mimic hardwar... View full abstract»

    Not re-inventing the wheel is generally reckoned to be a sound engineering principle. So when Cambridge Consultants Ltd. (CCL) decides to fund its own development of yet another microprocessor, the obvious question is why? CCL's processor, which rejoices in the snappy name of the XAP (pronounced zap), has evolved in response to the distinctive engineering problems the company was being asked to so...
