Workshop 04

Nov. 28 (Thu)  09:00-11:30   Annex Hall F204
Wireless Personal Area Smart Sensor Network
Organizer / Chair :  Toshihiko Hamasaki (Hiroshima Institute of Technology)

Smart sensing system with WPAN is considered to be one of the future infrastructures of social security. Autonomous sensor node is necessary and the ultra low-power communication protocol such as ZigBee has been proposed for last decade. However, the system utilization has been limited in some specific industry area and there are still some issues in order to expand the application spaces.
In this workshop, recent achievements will be demonstrate for wireless device, sensor node, networking and application technology, respectively.

Chair :  Yuki Higashide (Murata Software Co., Ltd.)

Electromagnetic (EM) simulators are necessary nowadays for simulation of high frequency circuits. Last year, canonical problems (conductor/dielectric sphere, dipole antenna, patch antenna, waveguide slot antenna, standard gain horn antenna, on-chip spiral inductor and on-chip capacitor) were prepared and tips to solve those problems using EM simulators were discussed.
This year, accuracy and speed of simulation will be discussed using some of canonical problems.
