Let’s start mentioning some names: Nexus 7, iWatch, Google Glass, Galaxy Gear, PS 4, and iPhone 5C. Yes, they all are outstanding technological products and, in this blog, I want to develop one shared feature by all them: wireless communication systems. I would like to talk about signal processing, antennas, mobile networks, optical communications, and topics related to wireless communication systems. Therefore, I will use a technical vocabulary and specific content, but I will try to write some posts in a more general manner in order to be accessible to a major number of people. I would like to introduce the next topic that I’ve chosen for my next post in the following paragraph:
During the last years, the demand for mobile communication systems has spectacularly increased: at present, there are 6,800 million of mobile devices for a population of 7,000 people million in the world, and it is expected that, by 2014, there will be 7,300 million, according to the ITU. That is the reason why these systems have evolved, developing new technologies more efficient each time. The latest standard in mobile communication systems, Long Term Evolution (LTE) shows this evolution. It incorporates highly efficient techniques such as OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) and other techniques like MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output).  In the next post, we will see the characteristics of the physical layer of LTE, mainly OFDM, in order to justify why its use is strikingly increasing in mobile communications.
Comments and feedback will be welcomed! wink

  • Quick survey (just two questions!)
    Hi, I was thinking that I would like to be more useful and have some feedback, comments and/or discussions about the topics that I post with you, so I've created a form in order to know how to that! :) It is anonymous! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1gXZ0sPDUQNm5q4_3ONpEe0ghyNuinUUt1y9x_OWcsnQ/viewform Thanks!! read more...
  • Antennas: Radiated fields
    As we concluded in last post, the radiated fields are proportional to 1/r and they have contributions in large distances from the sources. The radiated magnetic field can be obtained by using the potential vector expression:    Therefore, the magnetic field is orthogonal to the radial direction and vector potential. read more...
