Two years ago, DOD banned all “flash media” devices in an effort to contain the “Agent.btz” computer virus. In 2009, Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said, “I do not see the thumb drives going back here in the immediate future.” Yet a year later (nearly to the day), the ban has been lifted.

At the fundamental and certainly traditional level, electronics design is about assembling and connecting electronic components together to achieve the intended, functional result. It’s a workable view that has loosely fitted the process of electronics design since its inception – even when you take into account the more ethereal concepts of embedded systems and software-defined functionality.
RF Engines Limited (RFEL) has developed a 32 channel RF signal generator that is designed to enable challenging RF environments to be recreated in labs to test RF equipment. The PCI Upconverter is a flexible and configurable system that
