Predicting Fusing Time of Overloaded PCB Traces Can We Predict It At All? with Douglas Brooks, PhD and Dr. Johannes Adam

When Traces Melt:  Figures 1 and 2 (Note 1) illustrate traces on two different boards. Each figure illustrates the trace at the moment it fuses (melts) due to a significant current overload. The fusing mechanisms are clearly different. So what was different? Here is the first hint. Assume there is a current that is just …

Practical Reliability Data Analysis for Non-Reliability Engineers with Darcy Brooker

Reliability engineering and management primarily focuses on preventing and minimizing failures and their consequences, whether those failures gravely threaten safety, reduce mission effectiveness, or simply increase costs. Most engineering disciplines and systems can effectively use this body of knowledge. But statistical analysis of data is perhaps the area of reliability engineering that discourages the most people. …

Next-Generation Emergency Services, the current state of emergency services; how to plan and execute a move to a standards-compliant NG9-1-1 service with Barbara Kemp and Bart Lovett

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. The Handbook of Next Generation Emergency Services by Barbara Kemp and  Bart Lovett is about diffraction modeling and simulation. Scattering has gained …

Applications of Geographic Information Systems for Wireless Network Planning with Francisco Saez De Adana, Josefa Gómez Pérez, Abdelhamid Tayebi Tayebi and Juan Casado Ballesteros

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system that gathers, analyses, stores, checks, manipulates, manages, and visualizes data related to spatial locations on Earth’s surface. A GIS works as a database with geographic information (alphanumeric data) that is associated by an identifier common to the graphic objects of digital maps. In this way, when …
