It can, for example, compare WiMAX equipment operating in different frequency bands. Its channel emulation capabilities emulate standard and future channel models, including 802.11n as well as pre-standardization MIMO channel models such as 3GPP SCM (space channel model) and SCME (space channel model extended) models for 3G.

Rapid development of portable systems like laptops, PDAs, digital wrist watches, implantable pacemakers and cell phones require low power consumption and high density ICs, and that leads to a surge of innovative developments in low power devices and design techniques. In most cases, the requirements for low power consumption must be met with equally demanding goals for high chip density and high throughput circuits. Hence, the low power digital design and digital ICs have emerged as very active fields of research and development. In this cutting-edge technology era, reduction in the power dissipation is a critical task, especially as the size of transistors are scaled down to increase the transistor density over the silicon chip. Reduction in power dissipation is also an important objective in the design of digital circuits. This paper reveals the techniques of designing with low power CMOS circuits.

So when to use SMASH or IPMI? It’s helpful to think of IPMI and SMASH as collaborating with each other. Even though IPMI offers a standardized message interface for developers and vendors, the actual server command line interface often varies from vendor to vendor. Think of SMASH then as the primary command line interface (CLI) available out of the box, accessing the IPMI hardware health management features in the box. This command consistency across different vendor's servers or blades is important to understand, not just for reducing the learning curve for managing new servers, but especially when considering the investment in scripts that many IT shops have made.
