    Reports on the Radio Act of 1912 and discusses its historical significance in the field of communications. The article explores the legislation leading up to that Radio Act and the implications on wireless and nonwireless radio communications. The article was prompted by the Titanic's iceberg-sinking and the legislation leading from that disaster. View full abstract»

    Traceable high precision EMC/EMI measurements will simplify product specifications and reduce the liability of OEMs. A novel automated near-field testbed for system- to chip-level EMC/ EMI in the RF domain based on photonic phasor probes is presented. The scanning system combines a large scanning volume with micrometer resolution. An optical surface reconstruction system allows the surface structu... View full abstract»

    Frequency domain Vector Fitting (VF) is a well-known technique to generate circuital models of a spatially discretized lossy transmission lines from theoretical formulation of losses. The subpicosecond time steps required by multi-gigahertz bandwidths and short transmission lines included in the models, determine long Spice simulation times. A 100X speedup can be gained using the Digital Wave Simu... View full abstract»

    Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is one of the critical design issues affecting the performance of consumer electronic devices, especially for wireless devices and applications. EMI can easily degrade the performance of systems through undesirable spectral components and by interference from the system itself. Therefore, there are a lot of techniques addressing this issue such as differential si... View full abstract»

    EMC is primarily about limiting the amount of available EM energy capable of causing interference. If all else fails, the ability to absorb and convert into heat some of this energy is a very useful tool. Absorbers have been used extensively in EMC related applications for a long time e.g. in anechoic rooms. More recently, advances in technology have facilitated the design of thin, efficient absor...

  • Thin absorbers: operational principles and various realizations

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2811 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we discuss electrically thin absorbers: thin lossy layers which can fully absorb (convert to heat) energy of electromagnetic waves falling on the layer's surface. Most often, thin absorbers are used as covers of metal bodies, and the goal is to eliminate reflections from conducting surfaces, with applications in EMC and stealth technology. However, in some applications it is necessar... View full abstract»

    Electromagnetic absorbers for free space and cavity absorption are discussed. Classical configurations are described as well as more recent designs. The presented layouts are able to provide absorbing behaviors spanning from ultra-narrow band to ultra-wideband. A comparison among various solutions is presented both in terms of achievable bandwidth and in terms of minimum theoretical thickness. The... View full abstract»

    Absorbers play an important role in protecting sensitive electronic devices from electromagnetic interference by absorbing the energy of incoming waves and reducing unnecessary reflection or transmission. In this paper we introduce new types of absorbers based on periodic structures, or the so-called metamaterials, which give us additional degrees of freedom to design the absorbing performance of ...
