Measuring surface plasmons could lead to faster internet

Measuring surface plasmons could lead to faster internet
Leiden physicists describe a method to measure so-called surface plasmons, which could lead to the latest light-based technologies, including faster internet. When audiences watch a new Game of Thrones episode, they usually don't think about the billions of flashes of light that race through a worldwide optical fiber network each second, resulting in images on the screen. Those flashes of light encounter numerous nodes, among them, the router installed in the home.

Simplify sideband & carrier suppression calibration

Simplify sideband & carrier suppression calibration
Enabling battery-powered, high performance broadband transmitters operating from 700MHz to 6GHz, Linear Technology introduces a low power I/Q modulator. The LTC5589 is powered by a single 2.7 to 3.6V supply and draws only 29.5mA current. According to the manufacturer, this is 50% lower power consumption than other solutions.
