    Baluns serve many applications in RF and microwave communications, radar, and instrumentation equipment. The word balun is an acronym for balanced-to-unbalanced converter, and the function is employed to change a single-ended signal, i.e., a signal that is referenced to ground, to a balanced signal with equal potentials with respect to ground but opposite polarity. These balun structures are emplo... View full abstract»

    Today, there are a number of basic networking technologies that can support data-centric home networking, including 802.11b, HomeRF, and Bluetooth. As with most new markets and technologies, what users want their home network to do is rapidly changing and evolving. Today's early-adopters want more from their home networks than just sharing PC peripherals; they want to be able to send their digital... View full abstract»

    The author describes a couple of examples where the biomedical applications of microwaves/RF are close to clinical use. The first is a successful clinical trial of RF ablation for breast cancer treatment. RF ablation relies on ultrasound for locating the tumor and guiding a thin needle electrode to the tumor. The electrode delivers RF energy to destroy (ablate) the tumor cells. The second example ... View full abstract»

    There are considerable public concerns regarding the biological effects and safety of microwave exposure from wireless base stations. There have been repeated calls for measures and tools that would reduce the exposure to microwave radiation from cellular mobile telephone operations. The radiated power from a base station antenna can vary from less than 1 to as high as 500 W per channel (or transm... View full abstract»
