PCB Design Guide to Via and Trace Currents and Temperatures Douglas Brooks and Johannes Adam

We have assembled 20-plus years of knowledge into these pages. Starting with a historical background, this book covers: (a) PCB materials (copper and dielectrics) and the role they play in the heating and cooling of traces; (b) The IPC curves found in IPC 2152 along with equations and simulations that fit those curves; (c) Sensitivity …

Exploring Electromagnetic Diffraction Modeling and Simulation with MATLAB with Gökhan Apaydin and Levent Sevgi

Waves, either electromagnetic (EM) or acoustic (AC) interact with objects and scatter. The addition of incident and scattered fields form the total fields. Scattered fields include (but not limited with) reflections, refractions, and diffractions. This book is about diffraction modeling and simulation. Scattering has gained much attention because of the increase of wireless communication in …

Architecting Information Acquisition To Satisfy Competing Goals with Kenneth J. Hintz

Information Based Sensor Management  (IBSM) was briefly described in an earlier posting, but the question arises as to what are the criteria which led to this inevitable approach to sensor management.  That is, how do you architect the noncommensurate elements of IBSM while satisfying competing mission goals.  We present here a brief synopsis of an …

Cybersecurity vs. Productivity: How Do We Meet In The Middle?

Recently, I have seen many more discussions about cybersecurity breaches. Could this be down to many more people working from home? Or is expected due to the increase of technology in our day-to-day lives? Or both? This Forbes article from 2018 – https://www.forbes.com/sites/sallypercy/2018/11/27/the-top-three-business-priorities-for-leaders-over-the-next-three-years/?sh=26358f834ec9 – said that companies would be making cybersecurity and big data one …

Why You Need This Book: Introduction to OFDM Receiver Design and Simulation with Y.J. Liu

Recently, the OFDM technology has advanced significantly. It has found applications in 5G using concepts such as OFDM-MIMO, Massive MIMO and others. However, OFDM is still the fundamental building block of all these advanced applications. To help the readers get up to speed in stepping into the 5G era, this book entitled “Introduction to OFDM …

Exploring The Technical Foundations of IoT with Boris Adryan, Dominik Obermaier, and Paul Fremantle

The Technical Foundations of IoT by Boris Adryan, Dominik Obermaier, Paul Fremantle provides an overview of the technical aspects of the Internet of Things (in fact, most other modern technology!), offering more theory and background information than is usually required for non-specialists in interdisciplinary development teams. That is, product design specialists are going to get an introduction …

Smart Fibre from Space – Moving the Internet into the Galaxy? with Geoff Varrall

Once in a while we find ourselves writing about topics which are relatively new to us. My comfort zone as an author is RF engineering but suddenly it seems that free space optical wireless is becoming important in space and terrestrial networks. Counter intuitively this became obvious when looking at the economics of subsea fibre …

Exploring Ultrawideband Short-Pulse Radio Systems with Vladimir I. Koshelev, Victor P. Belichenko, and Yury I. Buyanov

The history of ultrawideband (UWB) radio systems development and application field of short UWB radiation pulses have been considered briefly in the monograph. The main approaches and methods for solving the problems of  electromagnetics of transient processes relating to the radiation, propagation and scattering of UWB pulses on conductive and dielectric objects were described. Impulse …
