    This paper described a versatile block of signal conditioning options that process raw data samples from the A/D converter and deliver a filtered and resampled version of those data samples to a conventional FFT based spectrum analyzer. The conditioning performs a number of important processing functions. These include spectral translation to baseband, noise bandwidth reduction to signal bandwidth... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces a shock sensor design that requires zero power, is small, low cost, and can be remotely monitored. The sensor combines a latching accelerometer with a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip. The accelerometer is a mechanical element that changes states when threshold acceleration is met. The element's state can be relayed wirelessly to an electronic reader via the RFID ch... View full abstract»

    This paper examined how recent innovations in processor technology are pushing the limits for ATE applications. Various multicore programming techniques were discussed including task parallelism, data parallelism, and pipelining. In addition, an example of optimizing complex analysis was covered. The benefits of adopting multicore technology and parallel software architectures include a reduction ... View full abstract»

    For optimum performance, a modern, high performance, synthetic instrument must be designed to keep RF energy that is outside the module from leaking in-and not let any of its energy leak out into other modules. Every detail must be addressed. DC power lines, signal lines, air cooling holes, and conventional RF shielding are all important design considerations in the small confines of an SI chassis...

    This article is the second in a series of four that describe the early years of the National Bureau of Standards (now known as the National Institute of Standards and Technology). The fi rst article described the work of Ferdinand Rudolph Hassler, America¿s fi rst metrologist [1]. His efforts during the fi rst half of the 19th century created the fi rst survey of the coastal United States and pro... View full abstract»
