A new type of Li-Fi (Light Fidelity) optical wireless system being developed by students at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) Institute for Photonic Integration is up to 100 times faster than the best Wi-Fi connections available.
Current and future smartphones that combine spectrum from several frequency bands can function without a typical antenna, thanks to a tiny "booster" device that can radiate RF signals from the smartphone itself.
Researchers at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University have built a software-defined radio (SDR) transceiver that is capable of transmitting and receiving a radio signal on a single chip, which presents a new way to build wireless communication circuits.
Researchers at Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have developed an efficient wireless signal optimization algorithm that will help realize the full implementation of massive MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) antenna technology for 5th generation (5G) roll-outs.
Military radios are typically tested together in a closed mesh network, with programmable attenuators used to vary the attenuation and simulate different distances between the radios. While this test platform (i.e., military radio testbed) enables test engineers to conduct rigorous, transparent, and replicable testing of military radios, it is not without its limitations: namely the size of the mesh network, or, in simpler terms, the number of radios that can be tested together. This white paper discusses how JFW Industries specially designs and manufactures a wide range of solutions for testing military radios.
