Radar Wave Propagation Through Materials


This white paper focuses on electromagnetic (EM) wave propagation through materials. For radar systems, this is of interest when radar must pass through walls, or when designing radomes (cover casings for the radar system). In the process of designing a radome, you should always perform full EM simulation. However, the content of this white paper will help you to first estimate whether a radome... » read more

Securing The IoT Begins With Zero-Touch Provisioning At Scale


The path to secured IoT deployments starts with a hardware root-of-trust at the device level, a simple concept that belies the complexity of managing a chain of trust that extends from every edge device to the core of the network. The solution to this management challenge, based on a coordinated effort of domain experts, is a zero touch “chip-to-cloud” provisioning service for certificates-... » read more
