For many decades television engineers have dreamt of `the TV on the wall'. The display engineer has always answered, `maybe in about ten years time'. However now, for the first time, there is more than one technology offering a real possibility that the large, thin, flat television display will become a reality. There are three flat-panel technologies to consider: active matrix liquid crystal, pla... View full abstract»

The use of satellite systems in the implementation of third-generation mobile communication systems obviously involves a propagation environment for the signal different from that in the conventional terrestrial first- and second-generation systems. The propagation conditions and phenomena met with are embraced by the expression `land mobile satellite (LMS) channel'. This paper reviews the studies... View full abstract»

Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data provide unique information about the Earth's surface and biodiversity, including critical data for natural hazards and resource assessments. The ability to calculate the cross-section of a scatterer for any transmit and receive polarisation combination provides detailed information about vegetation for assessing changes in land cover, biomass and forest regrowth...

For pt.1 see ibid., vol.8, no. 4, p.185-94 (1999). Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are widely used in electronic equipment and systems. Application of good EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) practices to their design usually helps to achieve compliance with EMC regulations at much lower cost than alternative EMC measures at higher levels of integration, and also improves signal integrity.

Aims & Scope
Published from 1989-2002, the Electronics & Communication Engineering Journal aimed to inform practising professional engineers who were involved in electronics and communications by providing coverage of new developments in a serious technical, but not in an overformal or academic manner.
Topics covered included: Measurement and instrumentation; circuit design, simulation and CAD; signal and image processing, coding; microwaves, antennas and radio propagation; optoelectronics; TV and sound broadcasting; telecommunication networks; radio and satellite communications; radar, sonar and navigation systems; and electromagnetic compatibility.
