We’ve been covering low-power wireless from the beginning—actually for many years before Low-Power Design started up. Starting in May—in anticipation of the IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium in Anaheim from May 23-28—Low-Power Design is launching a new Low-Power Wireless web site. It will closely resemble Low-Power Design but be focused exclusively on RF/wireless design. The site will include:
- RF Design Articles
- RF News
- RF Products
- Special coverage of software-defined radio (SDR) and cognitive radio
- SDR hands-on projects using the Ettus USRP Classic board and variety of RF front ends and open-source software tools
- Hands-on evaluations of RF evaluation and development kits
- Low-power wireless tutorials, videos, design notes and white papers
I’ve laid in some new RF test equipment and am anxious to start playing with my new toys!
We need contributed articles, both for the launch and on an ongoing basis. Articles should be 1500-2500 words in length and problem/solution oriented–NO marketing pitches, please! Like Low-Power Design, this is an online magazine for design engineers developing RF/wireless products. We need to to share your insights and tell how you managed to solve the problem at hand. Think EDN (I’m an ex-EDN editor and retain that bias).
While our strength will be RF engineering articles, Low-Power Wireless will rely on sponsors as well as advertising. If you’re at all interested in helping sponsor us–for which you get a lot of perks, not to mention thanks–or advertise on the site or in our newsletter (10K circ.), you can download our media kit here.
Key dates are:
- April 23—Submit article abstracts for approval. To submit an abstract or for editorial inquiries click here.
- April 30—Book ads.
- May 7—Submit final article copy with graphics
- May 7—Submit final ad copy
- May 21— Low-Power Wireless goes live
We hope you’re as excited about this development as we are, and we’ll do all we can to meet and exceed your expectations.
