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?
