Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Technological development and monumental innovation are progressing faster than we ever imagined. Novel systems and designs caused by emerging technologies have the potential to totally change our lives and interactions between human and the environment. Particularly, new products, devices, and applications propelled by the advance of electronics technologies are going to impact every aspect of our daily life. In light of such technological innovation, the field of electronics has also evolved from devices, circuits, and technologies, to systems and applications.  

This Special Issue (SI) is aimed at soliciting the good articles from 2021 IEEE ICET demonstrating significant breakthroughs in all areas of electronics and associated system-level applications.

This article addresses the problem of the detection of range-spread targets in the presence of Gaussian disturbance which are in possession of unidentified covariance matrices. The detectors have been derived by resorting to a design composed of two steps. Based on the Rao test and Wald test, the corresponding strategies of detection were respectively derived, assuming the expression of disturbance covariance matrix has been obtained. Afterwards, the unknown parameters in the detectors were estimated on the basis of both the primary and the training data, utilizing the autoregressive property of the disturbance. A remarkable characteristic of the Rao and Wald detectors is they both asymptotically attain constant false-alarm rate (CFAR) in respect of the disturbance covariance matrix. Finally, we completed a performance assessment by utilizing the simulated data, and the result demonstrated the effectiveness of the existing proposals compared with the detectors previously proposed.

Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellite Internet Network (LEO-SIN) is a promising approach to global Gigabit per second (Gbps) broadband communications in the coming sixth-generation (6G) era. This paper mainly focuses on the innovation of accuracy improvement of simulation modeling of the Doppler Power Spectrum (DPS) of satellite channels in LEO-SIN. Existing DPS modeling methods are based on Rice’s Sum-of-Sinusoids (SOS) which have obvious modeling errors in scenarios with main signal propagation paths, asymmetrical power spectrum, and random multi-path signals with a random Angle of Arrival (AOA) in LEO-SIN. There are few state-of-art researches devoted to higher accuracy of DPS modeling for simulation. Therefore, this paper proposes a novel Random Method of Exact Doppler Spread method Set Partitioning (RMEDS-SP). Distinct from existed researches, we firstly model the DPS of LEO-SIN, which more accurately describes the characteristics of frequency dispersion with the main path and multi-path signals with random AOA. Furthermore, piecewise functions to the Autocorrelation Function (ACF) of RMEDS-SP is first exploited to converge the modeling error supposition with time by periodic changes, which further improve the accuracy of the DPS model. Experimental results show that the accuracy of DPS in our proposed model is improved by 32.19% and 18.52%, respectively when compared with existing models. Full article

In recent years, with the development of the communication industry, the need to use Ethernet switches to transmit big data has become more urgent, and its protocol standards are iterating towards higher return loss, wider bandwidth, lower impedance fluctuations and insertion loss. Based on the research of high-speed backplane with a single channel 25 Gbps transmission rate, a novel double grounded planar strip coplanar waveguide design is presented, which significantly improved return loss to 20 dB and reduced insertion loss, which meet the loss standard of 100GBASE-KR4. The resonant cavity model of transmission line reference plane is improved by introducing vias and the parameters of vias in the reference plane are studied to reduce the impact of resonance, which improved the transmission −1 dB bandwidth to 60 GHz. Based on equivalent circuit analysis of differential vias’ joint reverse pad, the parameters related to the differential vias are studied, the impedance fluctuation is reduced to 100 ± 3 Ω, which is 70% better than the impedance fluctuation standard (100 ± 10 Ω) of 100GBASE-KR4. After optimizing the mathematical model of strip coplanar waveguide, reference plane and differential vias, we built a simulation model of the backplane passive link which met the 100GBASE-KR4 backplane Ethernet specification. In the actual test, it was found that the optimized model can improve the link performance. Full article
