  • Call for papers: 2021 5G World Forum

    The 2021 IEEE 4th 5G World Forum (5GWF’21) seeks contributions on how to nurture and cultivate future network technologies and applications beyond 5G, and how they can benefit society. This will be a virtual event similar to 5GWF’20, but we are also planning an in-person event in Montreal, Canada (around October 13, 2021) that will be an official part of 5GWF’21. Physical attendance is not expected or required for authors and presenters.

  • IEEE Member's Michael S. Obrecht Siborg Systems wins Plant Engineering’s Product of the Year 2020 Award

    Olntario, Wateroo based Siborg Systems Inc won Plant Engineering’s Product of the Year 2020 Award with their LCR-Reader-MPA All-in-One Multimeter. This unique device is a continuation of the previous development of tweezer-meters started in early 2000s that resulted in Smart Tweezers LCR-meter, the first LCR-meter for Surface Mount Technology. The main feature of a tweezer-meter is a combination of LCR-meter, tweezers and display. It automatically detects the type of measured component and quickly provides measurement result. It saves money in the lab when any work is done using SMDs that often do not have any markings.

    LCR-Reader-MPA delivers record high 0.1% basic accuracy for LCR/ESR measurements with up to 100 kHz test frequency, along with unrivaled variety of additional functions. In contrast to other tweezer-meters, LCR-Reader-MPA provides Diode/LED test, AC/DC Voltage/Current measurements, Oscilloscope, Frequency meter, Signal Generator and more. Optional Bluetooth communication module is available as well, connecting the device to a computer. NIST traceable calibration certificate is included.
