Harmonising Engineering Education with Nature

August 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST
In the new millennium of digital communications, everything is wireless everywhere. Electromagnetic waves and propagation drive the wireless physical world.

Laminates for mmWave PCBs: Different Solutions for All-RF Multilayer, Hybrid Multilayer, and Double-Sided PCBs

August 13 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm AEST
At high mmWave frequencies, all antenna features are smaller than ever before. This means that the RF base material for antenna printed circuit boards (PCBs) have to have tighter tolerances at the lowest loss. Different PCB solutions require different RF laminates: hybrid multilayers (RF laminate + FR4), all-RF multilayers, and double-sided PCBs. From electrical and mechanical reliability points of view, ceramic filled PTFE based materials provide a leading edge over thermoset resin system base materials. The high consistency of dielectric constant and loss factor of the thermoplastic material...

Research Commercialisation on the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

July 8 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm AEST
IEEE Monthly Technical Talk on Data Analytics and Internet of Things (IOT) Despite a preponderance of research on the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), few applications move from pilot projects to commercially sustainable systems. Further, those that do are characterised by long lead times and huge investments. A review of several systems reveals that successful translation from pilot systems to commercial deployments depends on a confluence of innovative technologies, sound business models and effective clinical designs. Unfortunately, this confluence is relatively rare.  A framework is pro...
