Future projections for the Internet of things (IoT) are staggering: billions of devices around the world, with 500 residing in a typical home. That’s why the wireless designers I know are preparing their devices for the Interference of Things—and they’re doing it early in the development process. This is especially important for IoT widgets… (Show more)

The electronics industry is buzzing with the Internet of Things (IoT). One engineer described IoT as a vast conspiracy to put network connections on every object in the world—completely independent of whether it makes sense or not.   When we start connecting up all of these “things,” new system requirements creep in that may not be obvious. Your… (Show more)

You have been tasked with leading a team to go after this 5G business. Your strategic imperatives include success and leadership in 5G and you are an essential part of making it happen. Your management, your team, your C-suite, your board of directors, and perhaps even your family, are all counting on you to deliver.   No pressure. Just do it,… (Show more)

Nearly every manufacturing executive I talk to is looking for ways to improve product quality and reliability, and they often think that drastic measures are required. They assume they’ll have to reinvent their engineering design processes, implement expensive upgrades on the manufacturing floor, or restructure their supply chain. They’re often… (Show more)

Only a few years ago, six billion hertz was plenty to manage Facebook, WeChat, and YouTube. But mobile wireless owns a fraction of that six billion so we are driving to frequencies far beyond what many of us consider our radio comfort zone. I have seen multiple radio engineering labs coming to grips with these new frequencies. As 5G mmWave goes… (Show more)

I recall detailed conversations during the 2G-to-3G and 3G-to-4G transitions about the elusive “killer app” that would drive the ROI for a better mobile phone system. Our transition to 5G technology is no different, and while the term killer app does not pervade the vernacular like it once did, the concept lives on. And it lives on in an… (Show more)

I hate trade shows. But this element of my role is both a curse and a blessing. Whether you call it a symposium or a circus, a convention or a carnival, events such as Globecom, EDI CON, European Microwave Week (EuMW), and Mobile World Congress mean long flights, jetlag, sore feet, and being subjected to the requisite barrage of wireless hype. But… (Show more)

Is your life ruled by electronics? Mine is. It seems that everything I do—from opening a garage door to adjusting the thermostat to tracking my heartbeats during a workout—relies on electronic sensors that are embedded not just in my devices but in my life. That’s why I’m always surprised to hear people refer to electronic measurement as a… (Show more)

The ability to accurately measure and quantify a digital design is essential to actually knowing what’s going on. A fellow named William Thomson, better known as Lord Kelvin, captured this concept in one of my favorite quotes:   When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it.   This was… (Show more)
