High Speed Communications – Analogue/Mixed-Signal Network

GrantrMembers, Past Events


Communications forms an essential part of most electronics systems. This event, part of the NMI Analogue/Mixed-Signal/RF Network, looked at the technologies behind a range of high speed wireline and wireless technologies and consider the challenges in meeting the demand for ever increasing data rates. We also looked at the evolution of telecommunications networks, the opportunities created by greater integration of infrastructure and an initiative to develop the next generation of communications engineers.
