    High data rate wireless communications, nearing 1 Gb/s transmission rates, is of interest in emerging wireless local area networks and home audio/visual networks. Designing very high speed wireless links that offer good quality-of-service and range capability in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) environments constitutes a significant research and engineering challenge. Ignoring fading in NLOS environments,... View full abstract»

    The effect of spatial diversity on the throughput and reliability of wireless networks is examined. Spatial diversity is realized through multiple independently fading transmit/receive antenna paths in single-user communication and through independently fading links in multiuser communication. Adopting spatial diversity as a central theme, we start by studying its information-theoretic foundations... View full abstract»

    Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is a popular method for high data rate wireless transmission. OFDM may be combined with antenna arrays at the transmitter and receiver to increase the diversity gain and/or to enhance the system capacity on time-varying and frequency-selective channels, resulting in a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) configuration. The paper explores various p... View full abstract»

    The paper provides a tutorial overview of ultrawideband (UWB) radio technology for high-speed wireless connectivity. Subsequent to establishing a historical and technological context, it describes the new impetus for UWB systems development and standardization resulting from the FCC's recent decision to permit unlicensed operation in the 3.1-10.6 GHz band subject to modified Part 15 rules and indi...

    Central features of future 4G mobile communication systems are high-speed data transmission (up to 1 Gb/s) and interactive multimedia services. For effective delivery of these services, the network must satisfy some stringent QoS metrics, defined typically in terms of maximum delay and/or minimum throughput. Mobile satellite systems will be fully integrated with the terrestrial cellular systems to... View full abstract»

    To achieve innovative network architectures capable of delivering high-speed data transfers to end users, considerable efforts have been invested in minimizing or eliminating the bottlenecks that exist in high-speed network environments. These bottlenecks exist primarily at two levels, namely, network data transmission to the end system and data delivery within the end system to the user. For wire... View full abstract»

    The system-on-a-package (SOP) concept is considered as the solution of future communication modules, where more functionality, better performance, low cost, and more integrity is needed. We demonstrate how SOP technology can address the integration platform for future communication systems, especially gigabit wireless communications. After the introduction of the SOP concept, we introduce the crit... View full abstract»

    Even the best electrical engineers can make a mistake, and some of our Victorian forefathers wasted much time and energy in pursuing lines of research that ultimately came to a dead end. It was like that with some of the early attempts to make an electric motor based on magnetic machines rather than "electromagnetic" machines. The origin of the electric motor is usually traced back to the discover... View full abstract»
