The explosive demand in wireless-capable devices, especially with the proliferation of multiple standards, indicates a great opportunity for adoption of wireless technology at a mass-market level. The communication devices of both today and the future will have not only to allow for a variety of applications, supporting the transfer of characters, audio,(More)
In 2009 canine filarial infections were investigated in two northern areas of Serbia (Pančevo and Veliko Gradište), applying morphometry, biochemical staining, and immunological kit to detect Dirofilaria immitis antigens, and two home-made ELISAs to detect antibodies to D. repens and D. immitis somatic/metabolic polyproteins. Moreover, molecular tools were(More)
—Analog RF front-end circuits are typically designed to perform one specific task, while key parameters such as dynamic range, bandwidth and selectivity are fixed by the hardware design and not by the communication system in an adaptive way. As a result , today's receiver topologies are designed to function under the most stringent conditions, which(More)
In 2006 and 2007, a total of 193 blood samples were collected from privately owned dogs housed predominantly outdoors, resident in four provinces in Vojvodina, Serbian Republic. Circulating microfilariae of Dirofilaria repens, Dirofilaria immitis and Acanthocheilonema reconditum were found in 49.2%, 7.2% and 2.1% of dogs, respectively. Two additional occult(More)
PURPOSE The goals of this study were to demonstrate the frequency of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in patients with pseudoexfoliation (PEX) syndrome (PEXS) and PEX glaucoma (PEXG), and to determine whether limited screening for AAA in specific subgroups of patients with PEX is reasonable and justifiable. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective(More)
So far, oscillators have been designed to perform a specific task while the key parameters such as phase-noise and power consumption are set by the hardware design and not by the communication system in an adaptive way. As the communication channel is often subject to changes, the conditions under which the oscillator operates should be changed as well.(More)
A multistandard/multiband adaptive voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) satisfying the phase-noise requirements of both second- and third-generation wireless standards is described in this paper (1.8-GHz DCS1800, 2.1-GHz wide-band code division multiple access, and 2.4-GHz wireless local area network, Bluetooth, and digital enhanced cordless(More)
—In this paper, new receiver concepts and CMOS circuits for future wireless communications applications are introduced. The concepts derived are applied to a few classes of wireless communications standards that are broad-band at radio frequencies and/or require a broad-band baseband circuitry. Multi-mode multiband operation and adaptivity as key(More)
Due to technology limitations as well as stringent operating conditions that are imposed, the design of fully integrated analog RF front-end circuits is aimed at the edge of the required performances. Such an approach implies that each dB of power or noise is of high importance, as it directly determines the range of operation of a system. Accordingly, a(More)
