  • NIST, AIM Photonics Partner on High-Frequency PICs

    Dec 20, 2022, 08:03 AM By: RSS Feed

    The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has entered into a cooperative R&D agreement with AIM Photonics that will give chip developers a critical new tool for designing faster photonic integrated circuits (PICs). As part of the collaboration, NIST will design electrical “calibration structures” that can be used to measure and test the electronic performance of chips. This will enable improved design quality for chips operating at speeds up to 110 GHz. Most current photonic chips operate at around 25 GHz.

  • The Importance of Frequency in Advertising

    Dec 20, 2022, 05:05 AM By: RSS Feed

    Frequency is a crucial element of any advertising campaign. It refers to the number of times a potential customer is exposed to an advertisement. The more often a person sees an ad, the more likely they are to remember it and take action.

    There are several reasons why frequency is important in advertising. First, it helps to build brand awareness. By seeing an ad repeatedly, consumers become more familiar with the brand and its message. This can help to establish trust and credibility, leading to increased sales and customer loyalty.

    Frequency is also important because it helps to break through the noise of the marketplace. With so many competing messages and advertisements, it can be difficult for a brand to stand out. By...
