Cables and connectors may not always be the first aspect of a project that one considers, but they are nevertheless important—and increasingly so as they accommodate today’s demands, including smaller-size devices.
As small satellites become more prevalent, the GPSDO can function as a timing solution to enable successful missions. This post explains the importance of timing before diving into GPSDOs.
Using additive manufacturing to fabricate “widgets” from conductive plastic, researchers have devised a way to remotely sense motion (and more) via Wi-Fi backscatter, without any interconnecting wires or need for power at the sensor.
This novel antenna configuration provides an inexpensive means of sending and receiving the millimeter-wave signals needed for moving large amounts of data in 5G wireless networks.
