Directional Antenna Diversity for Mobile Devices: Characterizations and Solutions
We report a first-of-its-kind realization of directional transmission for smartphone-like mobile devices using multiple passive directional antennas, supported by only one RF chain. The key is a multi-antenna system (MiDAS) and its antenna selection methods that judiciously select the right antenna for transmission. It is grounded by two measuremen ...
Design and Implementation of I/O Servers Using the Device File Boundary
Due to historical reasons, today's computer systems treat I/O devices as second-class citizens, supporting them with ad hoc and poorly-developed system software. As I/O devices are getting more diverse and are taking a central role in modern systems from mobile systems to servers, such second-class system support hinders novel system services such ...
