Cell Phones in the News

SAR, Cell Phones, and San Francisco

An interesting article came across my desk this week. It talks about a recent vote in by the Board of Supervisors in San Francisco requiring that cell phone retailers post the specific absorption rate (SAR) for all cellular handsets that they sell. The article caught my attention because many cell phone manufactures use our FDTD libraries to model the electromagnetic field strengths, which are used to calculate SAR as a post processing step.

Design Automation Conference 2009

I had the opportunity to visit DAC 2009 this year in San Francisco. DAC is an EDA conference which showcases tools and processes that perform simulation, logic synthesis, design verification, and timing analysis.  The work we do in linear algebra has direct applicability in this space, and we are eager to expand our reach in the EDA market. The show itself was well attended and there were approximately 200 exhibitors. It was great to catch up with our customers and reach out to some new ones.

IMS 2009 Wrap Up

IMS/MTT 2009 in Boston was an extremely successful show for Acceleware.

Acceleware at IMS 2009 in Boston

For our fourth consecutive year, Acceleware will be exhibiting at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) held in Boston from June 9th through June 11th.  I’m excited to see many familiar faces and to meet many new ones. We will be showcasing our products including our accelerated FDTD software, clustered solutions, and our linear algebra solvers.
