Researchers in Singapore Develop New Antenna for Millimeter Bands
Rick Hodgin, in the article New 60 GHz Antenna May Revolutionize High-Speed Mobile Connectivity With Instantaneous Wireless USB, describes a new low-temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) antenna for use in the 57-64 GHz band. The antenna was developed by researchers at Nanyang Technology University (NTU) and Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech). IEEE is currently developing standards for applications using these frequencies.

Hodgin notes that SIMTech's BGA surface-mount design makes it practical for designers to use the 60 GHz band. The BGA (ball-grid-array) combines the antenna and a radio module.

One potential application of this active antenna is short-range wireless USB connections. The extremely high frequency allows transmission of high data-rate signals such as HDTV.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
