An Overview of Near-Field Communication
Near-field communication (NFC) is a connectivity technology that enables wireless communication between two NFC-enabled devices. Communication via NFC occurs at short range, low bandwidth, and at a high frequency between devices. We discuss NFC’s components, its operating modes, and more.

The Use of Hardware Description Language for Digital System Synthesis
Design, verification, and synthesis are all processes that electronics engineers go through to manufacture digital systems. Such processes can be achieved via hardware description language (HDL), for which Very High Speed Integrated Circuit HDL and Verilog are two of the chief examples. We discuss HDL and the various processes that electronics engineers use for digital system synthesis.
