WiMAX Research Readied

WiMAX Research Readied For companies who've been tempted to switch to WiMAX but need more information, world wide licensing requirements will soon be available in an easily searchable online database. According to a Canadian broadband wireless market research firm, the database search is customizable by country, frequency, and alphabetical sorting. The online version features a user-friendly search engine that includes searches based on country, frequency, and license holder. Reports can even be exported to Excel for further customization. Customers will save valuable time by searching only for the information they need right at the moment, enabling them to anticipate licensing requirements quickly, and avoid bureaucratic red tape.

Narrowband Amp Negates Noise

Narrowband Amp Negates Noise These small footprint, narrowband amplifiers save RF components from early retirement by moderating against high levels of input power. Noise figure, output power, and linearity are preserved with minimal insertion loss. Passive or semi-active circuits can be used, with measured insertion loss as low as 0.8 dB at 18 GHZ.

Bi-Directional RF Power Amplifiers

Bi-Directional RF Power Amplifiers This miniature form factor amplifier receives and transmits within the 350 to 450 MHz range. The bi-directional application provides functionality for wireless data, telemetry, and communications systems without increasing real estate. Add custom frequencies to create a multi-task system that will increase the range of your RF system.

The Goodbye Wave

The Goodbye Wave Depending on the Air Force's definition of humane and non-lethal, the goodbye weapon might soon be marketed as a crowd control tool. The system shoots a 94 GHz (3 mm wave) beam (longer in wavelength than X-rays but shorter than microwaves) into the victim, who falls to the ground, and later runs away.

ID via IR

ID via IR Ever wonder how police ID traffic violators so quickly? They might be using Automatic License Plate Recognition, a technology using infrared cameras to automatically and continuously read vehicle license plates, checking them against an installed database for rapid ID. Officers no longer need to send a dispatch to central headquarters to identify you.

The 21st Century Cigarette The 21st Century Cigarette

We love our cell phones, but are they safe? A UK professor, chairman of a government-funded mobile telecommunications health research program and considered a world expert on mobile phone radiation, has suggested that cell phones are dangerous over the long term. He will monitor 200,000 users over a five year period to prove his theory that cell phones are the cigarette of the 21st century.
