    The biggest conclusion is that intensity of radar backscatter returns is a poor indicator of danger to a vehicle despite the attempts of several projects to show otherwise. Still, our method violates this finding at some level. An image of backscatter intensities is filtered with various image processing techniques then is thresholded as if it has become an image of risks or confidences. Current r... View full abstract»

    Many engineers are interested in avoiding EMC problems because of their difficulty to troubleshoot. Having a better understanding of the threat environment and EMI requirements for instrumentation is one of the best ways to avoid troubleshooting in the EMI lab. While the actual testing can be tedious, EMI testing is a field with many-intriguing instrumentation challenges. There is great opportunit... View full abstract»

    In the April 2006 issue of IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Magazine, "ADC Testing," the seventh in a series of tutorials on instrumentation and measurements, was presented. The authors have created a table that summarizes the parameters that are extracted from each ADC test setup that was presented in the tutorial. It is an easy reference guide for readers to find the topic they are researchi... View full abstract»
