How Fast Does a Trace Melt? with Douglas Brooks and Johannes Adam

Comparing Preece, Onderdonk, Simulation and Experimentation by Douglas Brooks, PhD and Dr. Johannes Adam Historically, Dr. Johannes Adam and I (Douglas Brooks) have looked at two sources for guidance here. W. H. Preece developed an equation in 1888 (appropriately known as “Preece’s Equation”) that tried to specify the “fusing current” as a function of conductor …

Flexibility in 5G transport networks: the key to meeting the demand for connectivity with Fabio Cavaliere

Artech House author Fabio Cavaliere, who wrote, shared a paper he co-authored about the importance of flexibility in 5G transport networks: The more people have been able to achieve while on the move, the more dependent society has become on mobile broadband networks. As applications like self-driving vehicles and remotely operated machinery evolve, become more …

The Importance of Book Reviews with IEEE Wireless Communications

Long after a book publishes, we value the input of reviewers around the world. Take a look at a review of Boris Adryan, Dominik Obermaier, Paul Fremantle’s The Technical Foundations of IoT, published by IEEE Wireless Communications: According to Cisco, the number of connected devices will reach 500 billion by 2030. The myriad devices to be …

A Deeper Dive into Parameter Extraction with Gunter Kompa

Artech author Gunter Kompa gave us a thorough explanation of model parameter extraction and other optimization methods. Read on for a closer look: Bidirectional Search has Proved its Reliability not Only with Compact 15-Element Equivalent Circuits but also for Discussed Complex (Quasi-Distributed) Transistor Model Topologies Regarding model parameter extraction one distinguishes commonly between direct extraction …

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 …

How and Why We Write with D.V. Giri

Artech House author, D.V. Giri, who, along with Richard Hoad and Frank Sabath, wrote High-Power Electromagnetic Effects on Electronic Systems, gave us insight about the bookwriting process: All civilized societies depend on electronic systems working smoothly for activities such as power distribution, banking, aviation, healthcare and transportation. We cannot imagine life without electrical power for …
