  • Workshop opened my eyes to the latest in test
  • Daniel, Thanks for writing this article. I had intended to attend the same workshop but things changed. Having attended Keysight's Basic Measurement Workshop and others, I know it's sometimes hard to keep up with the activities and still take notes and photos.

  • Beware of hidden antennas!
  • Here are the links. It's in 3 parts. http://www.hottconsultants.com/pdf_files/dipoles-1.pdf http://www.hottconsultants.com/pdf_files/dipoles-2.PDF http://www.hottconsultants.com/pdf_files/dipoles-3.PDF

  • 5G to disrupt the test equipment market
  • Just as 4G isn't (or wasn't) 4G when the marketers decided to call their enhanced 3G services 4G. will we see the same here? Will LTE-A be marketed as 5G and the real 5G marketed as 6G?

  • Design Ideas Submission Guide
  • Dov, Having been DI editor from 2008 to 2011, let me answer your question "Why will someone will be ready to give his ideas for this price if he can have more than $100K a year." Many DIs come from university students and their professors. For the student's, it's chance to get their work published and even collect a little money, which is something for a starving student. For professors, it's about getting published and the enjoyment of having the EDN community scrutinize their work. "be aware that the circuits most of them post are BASIC circuits that need some improvements" That's OK. Remember these are circuit ideas, not necessarily production-ready circuits. We welcome ideas for improving published circuits. That's the life blood of EDN Design Ideas. I can't count how many times people comment about circuits not being complete, but offering no help to improve them. Some people are just lazy, they think they can get away with using another person's work without wanting to take the time nor effort to improve it. Plus, they blame EDN for publishing the circuit as well. Having said that, many EDN readers will take the time to study a Design Idea and even build it just to learn how to improve it. Those people should be applauded. Some sly contributors will try to copy circuits and contribute them as their own. I once received a submission of a circuit that, after some searching, turned out to be the identical circuit from the same author published six years prior. One can only assume that the contributor was just in it for the money. Shameful.

  • Which software automates your tests?
  • rastrahouse2, I've never heard of Ranorex. I realized after the poll went live that we should have allowed for more than one response. What kind of products? Feel free to talk offlice, martin.rowe@ubm.com.

  • Correlation: An overlooked oscilloscope measurement
  • I actually pulled out the textbook from my college course in signal analysis for this one. Arthur is right, I haven't seen correlation since. The next chapter was convolution, another difficult topic. Signal analysis was by far my most math intensive undergraduate course. But, that was some years ago. Has anyone taken such a course in the last five or so years? It must be more dependent on computers & software now. That's a good thing. I remember trudging through apges and pages of math in signal analysis that at the end, you had little or know idea if your homework or test answer made sense.
