The Best of Both Worlds—Field Programmable Gate Arrays NL900S

What if I told you there exists today a technology that allows you to create a hardware circuit implementation of a software application. The Field Programmable Gate Array or FPGA is a reprogrammable silicon chip that provides the reliability of dedicated hardware without the drawback of sharing software resources—possibly the best of both worlds.

Minimize Operational Costs with Remote Monitoring

A Brief History of SCADA,SCADA systems provide real-time monitoring and control of your facilities, and is an acronym for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. Its fundamental purpose is to remotely monitor a range of processes, collect real-time data and then perform analysis on the accumulated data.

More Distance with Error Correction

Improving radio channel performance is a challenge that concerns every radio-system designer and user. In particular, wireless data systems can realize a significant radio channel performance improvement through the application of error control techniques. In a time when radio channel bandwidth and transmitter power are being reduced, improved receiver sensitivity through the introduction of powerful error correction methods is mandatory.
