is it possible that when you set to 100% power there is nothing inline with the DUT and wen you introdce a slight attenuation you are placing extra programmable attenator circuitry that might introduce a distortion... this may be in instrument artifact... just thinking out loud
@MAX-NICHOLE: There should be a correlation of investigation how both methods behaves better, so industry do not aist their capitals! I know they will not be the smae due to the nature of signal path, and space simulation.
I'm thinking that the differences between anechoic and reverberation chambers are somehow linked to multipath propagation. If there is a different approach in terms of performances in anechoic chambers and reverberation chambers (some radios are good in one and bad in the other) the base station will be able to see if there is a multipath fading (or delayed copies), therefore will it not be able to signal the device to change its radio (or some parameters.. in the end is a SDR)? (another idea why some are good in reverberation is possible because they are aware of some resonance effect... I don't know)
ive been using r&s cmw500 to measure lte sensitivity and always see a sharp decline from 100% to < 95% in throughput (usually within a change of <1 dB in dl power). do you know, theoretically, why this happens? i think this also happens using anritsu call boxes...
when you update teh slices can you place a label such your answer: The horzontal axis is the power measred in the test zone. .... MEASURE POWER FROM THE MIMO. AND yes!!! if small power is detectable, the Phones are better ...with better sensitivity
AS I UNDERSTAND THESE PLOTS IS BACKWARDS: MORE NEGATIVE MEANS MORE LOST OF SIGNAL MEASURED AT THE ANTENNA, SO -92dB is better than - 103dB but here is backwards ...so i was questioning the meaning of the plotting.
Hi all -Audio is live! If you don't see the audio bar at the top of the screen, please refresh your browser. It may take a couple tries. When you see the audio bar, hit the play button. If you experience audio interruptions and are using IE, try using FF or Chrome as your browser. Many people experience issues with IE. Also, make sure your flash player is updated with the current version. Some companies block live audio streams, so if that is the case for your company, the class will be archived on this page immediately following the class and you can listen then. People don't experience any issues with the audio for the archived version.
-The streaming audio player will appear on this web page when the show starts at 2 PM Eastern time today. Note however that some companies block live audio streams. If when the show starts you don't hear any audio, try refreshing your browser. If that doesn't work, try using Firefox or Google Chrome as your browser. Some users experience audio interruptions with IE. If that doesn't work, the class will be archived immediately following our live taping.
Q: Fanny, do you know of a good source or sources of information about health risks (e.g., brain tumour) associated with cellular phone usage (in particular, phone against skull, cf. "the sphere around the DUT") ?
David Servan-Schreiber, M.D., PhD (neurology) discusses this topic in the DVD production of his book "Anticancer", and mentions, if I recall correctly, that while few long-term studies exist to date the danger is certainly real.
-You are eligible to earn IEEE Professional Development Hours by attending these courses and participating in the chat function. Additionally, we are no longer using the points system, offering "graduation", or giving grades. The IEEE hours are taking the place of that. There are some important things for you to know about earning the hours. The most important ones are that you need to attend these courses live, you need to attend a minimum of two of them per semester, you need to fill out a course evaluation form within 2 weeks of the end of the class, you need to attend 4 out of the 5 classes per course, and you need to participate in the chat function every day you attend. Please click on the link at the top of this page that says "How do I earn IEEE professional development hours" to read all of these important details and more.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
