Utepils Brewery Information

Utepils is a Norwegian word that encapsulates “the longing and anticipation for the first beer enjoyed in the sunshine.” As Minnesotans, we know the feeling of longing for the end of winter hibernation. There’s nothing like stepping outside with a good beer to celebrate spring and renewal of life. That’s the Utepils moment. (And with the right beer and the right people, a Utepils moment doesn’t have to wait until spring—it can happen any time.)

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Communication System for Medical Applications and Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) System - TWIN CITIES SECTION on 24-May-2017

Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) and Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) technologies have become promising options for wireless medical applications. However, increased body loss at the ISM frequencies utilized in a BLE communication system and common interference sources, including Wi-Fi, IoT, wireless power charging, microwave-ovens, etc. present challenges for medical applications. MBAN frequencies are also quite close to the ISM frequency band. In this seminar, both BLE medical system & MBAN system analysis will be presented. System and interference testing will be discussed. User-hand effects on the system performance and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) will also be examined.  The seminar will include material presented on BLE & MBAN Communication Systems for Implants and Body-worn Devices at the FDA.

Location and Registration information can be found HERE.
