The most talked about application in wireless communications

Tho.JPG
Ultra-Wideband (UWB) wireless communication is a revolutionary technology which brings the convenience and mobility of wireless communications to high-speed interconnects in devices throughout the digital home and office. UWB can transmit large amounts of digital data over a wide spectrum of frequency bands with very low power for a short distance. Professor Tho LeNgoc is an editor of the recently published text entitled: Ultra-Wideband Wireless Communications & Networks (Hardcover). This exciting new text covers the fundamental aspects of UWB wireless communications systems for short range communications, and focuses on more advanced information about networks and applications.

Professor Zeljko Zilic has been hard at work developing a laboratory teaching kit for Microprocessor Systems Lab, and as a result, was awarded the $3,000 Wighton Fellowship this year. The same lab kit received an honorable mention at the IEEE International Microelectronics Systems Education Conference last June. Professor Zilic is the second McGill professor from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering to win this award; professor Harry Leib won in 1998.

The Wighton Fellowship

The Wighton Fellowship is a national award to recognize excellence in the development and teaching of laboratory courses in Canadian undergraduate engineering programs. The award is funded by an endowment from Dr. J.L. Wighton, a former Professor of Engineering at the University of Regina, whose commitment to the laboratory component of engineering curricula led to the formation of the Fellowship in 1986 in cooperation with the National Council of Deans of Engineering and Applied Science (NCDEAS) and the Sandford Fleming Foundation.
