Research News: FARAD team publish on novel radio frequency design tool to enable global roaming


A new paper published as part of the EPSRC Frequency Agile RADio (FARAD) project describes the development of a novel radio frequency (RF) tool that will speed up the design of tuneable wireless devices and allow for global roaming for smartphones. The research from the University of Bristol’s Dr. Eyad Arabi, Dr. Kevin Morris and Prof. Mark Beach, and in collaboration with the University of Sheffield, demonstrates that the new RF design methodology increases the efficiency and speed of the design process, as well as flexibility.
