We introduce a new Periodic micro coaxial transmission line (PMTL) that is capable of sustaining a TEM propagation mode up to THz band. The PMTL can be manufactured using the current photolithographic processes. This transmission line can be embedded in microscopic layers that allow many new applications. We use the PMTL to develop a wideband highly scalable connector that is then used in a Probe that can be used for connecting to microscopic scale Integrated Circuits with picoseconds High Speed Digital and near THz Analogue performance in various stages of development from R&D to production testing. These probes, in one embodiment, provide a thin pen-like vertical probe tip that matches the die pad pattern precisely that can be as agile as a high speed plotter pen, connecting on the fly to any die pattern on a wafer. … [Read more...] about Is Google Aiming at Building Faster Networks and Data Transmissions?

One thing I was going to add about being customer centric is, there’s a time and a place to being reactionary, for being totally empathetic with customers; and there’s also a time and place to take the lead because customers sometimes don’t know what they want, especially in situations when you’re defining a new category.

But I think there are lots and lots more opportunities to be far more customer-centric about how we do go approaching running a business. … [Read more...] about Optimize This! 10 Q&As on Customer-Centric Marketing with Lee Odden
Paid Search Drives $6 In Local Sales For Every $1 In Online Sales — Study Annual US retail spending is roughly $4 trillion according to the US Commerce Department. And while e-commerce is growing very rapidly, it remains less than 5 percent of total retail sales. Historically, most search marketers have focused almost exclusively on e-commerce sales. But a new study finds that the real impact of paid search is […] … [Read more...] about The Day In Search, December 12, 2011
