    A host of electromagnetic simulation tools are available today for modeling electromagnetic systems such as microwave circuits, antenna and associated feeds, electronic devices prone to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) or electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems, and digital and RF packages. A number of different numerical techniques are used in computational electromagnetics (CEM) solvers, ... View full abstract»

    Following the adoption by the Federal Communications Committee (FCC) in February 2002 [1] of the unlicensed use of ultrawideband (UWB) communications spectrum from 3.1 GHz to 10.6 GHz, there has been increasingly interesting research on UWB techniques by academics and private industry. UWB systems have several advantages: They have a bandwidth of 7.5 GHz, which can support a high transmission data... View full abstract»

    Most RF systems are based on a self-design approach, in which the components are con-ceived independently from one another, based on budget specifications and following a pre-assigned common 50-Ω impedance interface. This approach requires the design of separate components with their own shielding package, related size constraints, and 50-Ω terminals. When these components are then... View full abstract»

    Software-defined radios (SDRs) will play a key role in future radio configurations because the emergence of new wireless technologies and their integration in a fourth generation of communication standards will necessitate the use of multistandard and multiband radios. SDRs use a single hardware front end but can change their frequency of operation, occupied bandwidth, and adherence to various wir... View full abstract»

    Design closure for a filter is the process of going from the initial layout to a layout that when fabricated meets all required specifications. Normally, repeated electromagnetic (EM) analysis is required to achieve design closure. For filters, this process typically requires about two weeks. In contrast, to facilitate rapid design of the filter, port tuning techniques take advantage of auxiliary ... View full abstract»

    In summary, it is interesting to note that apparently, cell-phone use was associated with faster but less accurate response in cognitive function tasks. With the exception of the complex word naming tasks, results were similar for children reporting more cellphone calls or greater total number of SMS or text messages per week, suggesting that these cognitive changes were not due to microwave expos...

    Some time ago I wondered how, on the one hand, the concept nano was present at the forefront of the paradigm for many scientific areas, from basic to applied and industrial research, feeding numerous and vigorous activities such as conferences, lectures, thematic groups, committees, journals, and magazines. On the other hand, nano was not yet in the spotlight of our Microwave Theory and Techniques... View full abstract»
