The number of IoT devices seems to be at an all-time high, from industrial sensors, to IoT clothespins (really!), to smart water dispensers for cats. For mainstream IoT applications, battery life is often a huge differentiator in buying decisions, so designing a device with an energy-frugal microcontroller unit (MCU) is a critical success factor.… (Show more)
The never-ending drive to increase IoT battery life is great for customers, but it poses extraordinary challenges for design engineers. As sleep mode currents edge ever-closer to zero, the challenge of making measurements across a wide dynamic range becomes increasingly difficult.   Consider wireless transceiver chips, illustrated in the chart… (Show more)
Following on the theme from Roger’s recent post Blessings and Curses: Firsthand Commentary on the State of 5G Wireless Conclaves, I was invited to take part in one of the most enlightening 5G events I’ve encountered. It was the first of two 5G debates in London organized by Cambridge Wireless, a UK-based community bringing the mobile wireless… (Show more)

As engineers, sometimes the most useful way to imagine forward is to pause and look at how far we’ve come over the past several decades. These days, many of us are doing that with 5G.   Why am I so excited about the fifth generation of wireless communication? As history reveals, the hallmark of any great technology is the way it improves the… (Show more)
How much does a $1.00 battery cost? That may seem to be self-answering, along the lines of, “Who is in Grant’s Tomb?” or, “When was the War of 1812?” However, a single $1.00 battery may actually cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars when you consider all of the costs associated with its failure. Given the proliferation of batteries in the… (Show more)

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind—literally and figuratively.   On Tuesday, October 4, the European Microwave Week exhibition opened in London. We at Keysight—with some fanfare—pulled the fancy red drape off our new 110 GHz signal analyzer, the N9041B UXA. This thing is a total game-changer: it covers 3 Hz to 110 GHz in one unbanded sweep,… (Show more)
