802.16: Dynamic TDMA-based MAC with on-demand bandwidth allocation.

Key design elements include:

Not surprisingly, semiconductor vendors have investigated light processing. Texas Instruments, in particular, has for some time had a successful commercial operation based on micro-mirror technology. TI's Digital Light Processing (DLP) operation, however, is primarily focused on displays that range in size from readily portable projectors to systems that can be used to display motion pictures on theater screens. More information can be found on the unit's Web site at www.dlp.com.

If recent history is any judge, however, predictions of higher salaries will be difficult to fulfill. Actual base pay and total compensation have declined each year since 2000 and have consistently failed to meet industry projections. Participants in last year's Salary & Opinion survey, for example, expected an average base salary of $73,000 and total compensation of $84,600.

Conventional test technologies require many design-for test (DFT) rules in order to provide enough fault coverage and acceptable device defect rates. (Fault coverage is a measure of what percentage of detectable stuck-at faults can actually be detected by a specific set of test patterns (vectors) on a particular design.) The result of not following DFT rules is that a number of faults can't be tested using conventional scan methodologies and the overall fault coverage suffers considerably.

Flexible channel sizes from 1.5 MHz to 20 MHz.

Wrap Up With increasing focus in integrating more WLAN flavors on a single CMOS chip (802.11a, b, g, and more), the number of external RF components around the chip is exploding. Advanced packaging techniques will help, as illustrated here with a 5GHz WLAN transceiver with no external RF components nor connector: the antenna, active GaAs circuits and other high-quality passives are integrated in the package with the transceiver ASIC. IMEC also advocates intensive use of digital compensation techniques, tightly integrated around the OFDM digital core and without modification of the OFDM frame format, to enhance the link performances.These points are key factors for reduced bill of materials and time-to-market in final product implementations: integrate the RF chip in an advanced package, integrate the package in a system.

To detect signals on the receivers of both types of radios, the protocol relies on similarities in their signal chains, right up to the output of their respective analog-to-digital converters. There, the MAC will detect and decode the difference in pulse widths among OFDM, DS-CDMA and CSP signals as they emerge.
