Worked with medical devices

Thanks for the information and the look ahead.

Iron

Great information and good discussions, thanks, from Huntsville, Al.

Iron

Thanks Fanny, Rob, Digikey.  Everyone have a great weekend.

Iron

My thoughts go out to Japan and its good people.  

Blogger

Thanks so much everyone, for attending this week. Thanks Fanny for a great week of programs.

Blogger

thank you for your feedback, CPU - much appreciated!

 

Blogger

Have a good weekend, all. Pray for Japan and those in harms way from the earthquake.

Fanny, your presentations are filled with good info, and are very clear. Acronyms defined on every page. Useful for people with some knowledge, and those just learning. Thanks for these.

I've attended some other courses you taught. I'd encourage you to contune providing this service to the community.

Iron

Many 802.11ad implementations use 2.4 or 5 GHz as IF and up/down convert to 60 GHz.

Blogger

LOL.  Time to branch into laser communications  (LiFi here I come! :)

Iron

rswanson, I also worked on designs where phase noise was a real problem. But that was around 2.5 GHz. We used some nice freq synthesizers, with some proprietary techniques. Such approaches can significantly reduce the phase noise.

Iron

Once the wireless wold 'fills up' we will need to find other dimensions and higher frequencies :)

Blogger

4-6 Mbps should be enough throughput, depending on the resolution you need... may be even 2 Mbps is sufficient?  Obviously all depends on the surrounding network load and interference.

Blogger

Yes I am aware of this (and have had to deal with it in the wireless protocols for the products I've developed).  I understand that currently the carriers are're looking at the TV band, but its only a matter of time as the wireless world fills up.  What then???

Iron

thanks Fanny - great lecture series

Bill

Iron

for 802.11 ac chipsets:  Qualcomm/Atheros, Broadcom and Marvell are the major chipset vendors.

Blogger

At a public event, both WiFi and cell infrastructure is heavily utilized, primarily for downlink.  I'm looking for a way to enable a small number of roaming video cameras to uplink live video at around 4-6 Mbps.  Any thoughts?

Iron

in the 60 GHz band the biggest challenge is the RF front end and of course phase noise is an issue at such high frequencies. The techniques to deal with it are well guarded by the companies developing solutions.

Blogger

U Michigan is currently operating a major 'test bed' with hundreds of vehicles equipped with 802.11p radios. And the results are very encouraging.

Blogger

Who are the cutting edge companies making interface chips for 802.11ac ?

Iron

The legacy products in the unlicensed bands can still operate.  In these bands no service is protected from any other service.  The services can and do 'step on' each other.

Blogger

Were the University of Michigan and the auto makers involved in the development of DSRC? I've read a of a very similar vehicle peer-to-peer type network that they worked on - perhaps this is today's DSRC.

Iron

Thankyou Fanny.  I'm curious about how phase noise at 60 Ghz is effectively controlled or tolerated. In my work in the past, close in phase noise was a real limiting problem. Can you suggest links I could look at that address this issue?

Iron

What would happen to all the legacy product that would currently be operating in the unlicensed bands? 

Iron

Yes - the licensed carriers want to buy spectrum, particularly in the TV band.  There are FCC auctions that are about to happne whereby TV spectrum could be sold off to the carriers and this will diminish the availability of shared spectrum to the unlicensed users.

Blogger

It's likely that both LTE and 802.11p will be used under the DSRC stack

Blogger

Hi Fanny,  it appears that the licensed carriers are pushing to take over the unlicensed bands.  If that's true (and successful) that would force all the "little guys" to buy bandwidth from the carriers.  Is this an accurate picture? 

Iron

thank you Rob and digi-key CEC team

Iron

Thanks.  I am a chemist so not an "expert" and was able to keep up.  Good lecture.

For DSRC a good resource is ITS America (ITSA).  They put on trade shows and webinars.

Blogger

thanks Fanny. Have a great weekend.

Iron

Another question, the OFDM multipath problem. Is it certain that LTE or OFDM-based tech will be used for DSRC?

Iron

Thank you Fanny, Rob and Digikey. It has been a great learning week for me.

Iron

thanks Fanny

Bill - working on Avionics for cockpits

 

Iron

Thanks for the very good lectures

Iron

Hi Fanny. I'm interested in learning more about DSRC, and how a company can become involved in development and supplying this industry. Can you offer any comments?

Iron

Hello and thank god its friday

Iron

I have a question unrelated to the presentation.  Is there a mechanism for participants to contact one another outside the presentation?  I ask because I deduce that participant 78RPM and I might share an interest in old recordings, and I would like to explore that.

Iron

Present and Ready.  Howdy everyone.
