    Information technology and microelectronics have introduced a new dimension in the conception and design of electronics in health care whereby techniques have spun off from other fields such as defence research. In this Address examples in diagnostic imaging, cancer theraphy and neural stimulation are reviewed, illustrating the extent to which the electronics of the body itself is the new research...

  • Modular implementation of interconnecting networks in v.l.s.i.

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):11 - 14

    The paper proposes a modular implementation of a multistage cube interconnecting network suitable for v.l.s.i. environment. A realistic size of the module has been worked out and certain topologies for the intrachip and interchip connections have been compared. A dual tree interconnecting network is discussed in detail giving its performance evaluation. The proposed network has many attractive fea... View full abstract»

  • Doppler navigation and the remotely-piloted air vehicle

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):15 - 20
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (915 KB)

    The paper looks at Doppler navigation in relation to the remotely piloted air-vehicle (RPV) application and describes a suitable equipment. A height ceiling of a few thousand feet for an RPV is substantially less than that of a normal commercial aircraft and allows a simplification of the navigator design. In general, the size, weight and cost of a navigator depend on the performance required and ... View full abstract»

  • A 280 Mbit/s optical fibre vision link

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):21 - 27
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1068 KB)

    Early in 1983 the BBC introduced its first optical fibre vision links into full-time service. Each link allows two vision signals to be carried on one fibre between two of the BBC's West London premises. This paper discusses the background to the installation of the links and describes the terminal equipment developed for them. Details are given of the problems encountered and the solutions adopte...

  • A proposal to use polarization information to enhance a simple ESM receiver system based around a circular antenna array

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):28 - 32
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (750 KB)

    Recent interest in improved methods to passively detect and characterize sources of electromagnetic radiation and radar targets has concentrated research into the ability of new and existing systems to perform an Electronic Support Measures (ESM) role. Many existing radar and communication systems inherently derive information which could be exploited by an ESM analyser, but, in general, ignore th... View full abstract»

  • Multiple beam crossovers for a lens-fed antenna array

    Multiple beams from a linear antenna array can be formed using Ruze or Rotman lenses. A waveguide fed, parallel plate lens has been described, which provides beams with low sidelobes (¿¿20dB) and beam crossovers a¿ ¿10 dB. A microstrip version of this lens has also been described, with the additional feature of a beam port overlap network which doubles the number of beams and consequently rais... View full abstract»

  • Loaded highspeed computer data highway: a model to aid designers

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):37 - 41
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    Distributed computer networks implemented as passive data highways with high-speed transmission suffer excessive signal loss and distortion which, if not identified and minimized during design, result in low data integrity systems. Research aimed at improving this situation has led to the development of a model of the highway which is fully reported. View full abstract»
