Microwave Vision Group (Paris:ALMIC), leader in antenna measurement solutions, introduces SARLite, a new piece of measurement equipment that evaluates the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of wireless devices in a few seconds.
SAR is the quantity characterizing the absorption of electromagnetic wave energy from any type of radiating device such as a mobile phone, laptop, or a tablet PC into the human head or body.
SAR measurements are traditionally performed by using an electric field probe encased in a phantom (artificial head) filled with a liquid. The dielectric properties of the liquid are representative of head or body tissues. The probe is moved inside the phantom by a robot, making it possible to obtain discrete E-field values.
SARLite simplifies and accelerates the traditional SAR measurement method. With 265 probes and 651 sensors in a 3D matrix design, an area greater than 20 x 20 cm can be measured in only a few seconds. SARLite is capable of measuring a frequency bandwidth from 800 MHz to 3 GHz, without manipulation of the liquid, in this case, a wideband tissue simulant gel sealed inside the device. The sealed device also means no evaporation and no need to refill or replace the gel.
SARLite measures the E-field values emitted from mobile devices in order to tune electromagnetic radiation and is applicable at various stages in the R&D process.
SARLite can be used alone or as a complement to traditional SAR measurement systems to pre-test equipment in development, better preparing it for certification.
“Today, the number of protocols (4G, WiFi, WiMAX, Bluetooth, etc.)
covering a wide range of frequency bands is increasing at an exponential
rate. With this comes a significant increase in the time needed to
measure SAR and obtain certification. The SARLite is a fast and compact
solution. MVG drives to bring solutions that anticipate technological
evolution and user needs. In this case, the development of SARLite
presents the direction MVG is taking in this domain,” says Philippe
Garreau, CEO of Microwave Vision.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
