    These are interesting times for networking and telecommunications. In recent years, the focus has shifted from connectivity to bandwidth. Soon the focus will shift from bandwidth to services. The author is a leading advocate of open systems for service creation. He has more than 30 years of expertise in the telecommunications industry, much of it in challenging and often high-risk roles in which his entrepreneurial spirit has been called upon to dramatically alter the strategies and the fortunes of the companies he has led. He gives an excellent overview of what to expect in the years ahead. These changes will have profound effects on the way we communicate View full abstract»

    The circuit boards of many mixed-signal and digital systems are now dominated by individually placed discrete passive (DP) components. This article looks at thin-film integrated passives (IPs) as an alternative to DPs in the effort to save board space and improve electrical performance and system reliability. Integrated passive components have been utilized successfully with ceramic substrate technology for over 50 years in the form of thick-film resistive and dielectric firable pastes. However, this considerable infrastructure cannot be transferred to FR4 and flex substrates due to the high firing temperatures required, and these board materials make up the vast majority of interconnect substrates, in consumer and commercial systems. Mmat has been lacking is thin-film IP materials and fabrication processes that are compatible with organic boards View full abstract»

    Presents three encrypted holographic memory systems. These systems are secure because the total number of mathematical possibilities of the multidimensional keys, which consist of two-dimensional phase masks, their three-dimensional positions, and wavelengths of light, is extremely large. The experimental results are very encouraging. We expect the encrypted memory system to play an important role in ultrafast secure communication systems using the spatial-temporal converters with ultrahigh speed of more than Tb/s View full abstract»

    Electronic equipment designers use the part manufacturers' data sheets to help select parts. To do so efficiently and effectively, designers must understand the data sheet and the constraints part manufacturers place on the use of their parts. Although equipment designers are not necessarily bound by those constraints, they must be aware of them in order to avoid misinterpretation. This article provides a primer on the contents of an electronic data sheet, focusing on the environmental and operational constraints as well as electrical parameters in the context of their relationship with specification limits. The purpose is to make the reader aware of the issues that must be considered in using electronic part data sheets View full abstract»
