System Simulation For RF Link Budget Analysis


This white paper examines how a more rigorous link budget analysis of an entire system can be determined through simulation, and how performing link budget analysis enables designers to address losses, gains, and power levels to meet the operational requirements of the radio communications system.

New Power Concerns At 10/7nm


As chip sizes and complexity continues to grow exponentially at 7nm and below, managing power is becoming much more difficult. There are a number of factors that come into play at advanced nodes, including more and different types of processors, more chip-package decisions, and more susceptibility to noise of all sorts due to thinner insulation layers and wires. The result is that engineers ... » read more

White Hat Hacking


At first glance, the words “reverse engineering” (RE) might conjure up a couple of nefarious individuals with table full of tools, meters, and the like, in some basement trying to figure out how to disassemble some sort of electronic device. The image is wrong, however. More likely, today’s RE work will be found in a clandestine, well-funded uber-laboratory in an up-and-coming third-wo... » read more
