Germany’s Kristina Sprehe was unbeatable in the NÜRNBERGER WDM Grand Prix presented by FRB e.V. with her elegant black stallion Desperados FRH. They performed a smooth test with many highlights. The individual bronze and team gold medallist of the WEG in Caen in 2014, recently won the Grand Prix of Dortmund and Hagen, and today they proved they are keeping up their good form. In the WDM Grand Prix they scored 76.52%.Second placed Jessica von Bredow-Werndl was really happy after her test. She rode her KWPN stallion Unee BB with a lot of power in front of her homecrowd and received 75.74% from the judges.The USA’s Steffen Peters finished in third with the Westphalian gelding Legolas 92. The USA squad is competing in designated European CDI observation events and WDM Munich is the first competition for the American dressage riders. Steffen showed a good test with highlights in the piaffe, which was very well balanced. Their test was awarded with 73.62%.NÜRNBERGER Versicherungsgruppe Best of 4 Competition leader Patrik Kittel finished in fourth with his powerful stallion Watermill Scandic HBC. The longterm partners showed a controlled test with great passage and piaffe exercises like always. Unfortunately they had a mistake in the one tempi, which cost them some points.Ulla Salzgeber and Herzruf’s Erbe finished in fifth with 71.78% in front of the enthousiastic Munich public followed by Holland’s Patrick van der Meer and Uzzo with 71.02%.Tomorrow 10 combinations will return for the € 12,000 Global Dressage Analytics WDM Grand Prix Special presented by the Fürst Fugger Privatbank at 15:30 hrs.Full result WDM Grand Prix: here Tags: Kristina Sprehe, NÜRNBERGER WDM Grand Prix, SIGN UP Subscribe to the Horse Sport newsletter and get an exclusive bonus digital edition!

The Vermont Agency of Education approved the District’s proposal for more than $2 million to support expanded learning opportunities for its students. Burlington’s application earned 99.3 out of 100 points for the proposal – the second highest score from 22 applications. The Agency noted that this was the largest round of funding in the history of the program and that the process was highly competitive. Reviewers were impressed with the scope and depth of the proposal, including:Excellent mix of academic supports and enrichment;Meaningful, long-standing partners;Targeting the neediest kids – English Language Learners and children from low-income households; andSchool leadership support is evident and results in strong links to the school day, e.g. principal involvement, shared space, and district funds for support. Jeff Fournier, Director of Expanded Learning Opportunities, noted: “This award, combined with solid local support and strong collaboration with the many partners, assures that students at all levels will continue to benefit from these vital programs.”Burlington, Vermont – April 15, 2013 read more

With the increasing customer demand for better and faster in-vehicle infotainment systems, the requirement of adding more antenna elements into the vehicle rooftop antenna modules is increasing. Crosstalk (coupling) between those antenna elements within the module is one of the most critical and challenging issues that antenna engineers are facing and struggle to overcome. This crosstalk between the antenna elements results in leakage of unwanted signals, which are picked up by an antenna. A specific example is the influence of the cellular antenna element, which causes interference, overloading, and added noise in the low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) of the rest of the antenna elements.Engineers at Richardson RFPD were tasked with developing a robust LNA lineup for an SDARS antenna that has higher immunity to external interfering signals. The LNA lineup was for the SDARS antenna designed for multiband antennas for rooftop automotive applications to fit in a very small volume to satisfy automotive market requirements. The designers used National Instruments (NI) AWR software, specifically Microwave Office circuit design software, inclusive of the network synthesis wizard and iFilter integrated filter synthesis wizard, to simulate the complete LNA circuit.The stability analysis and optimization features of NI AWR software are very powerful and efficient in yielding the desired results. Combined with the network synthesis and iFilter wizards, the software enabled a fast turnaround time between simulation and bench testing.The designers chose the NI AWR Design Environment platform because they were very familiar with the software and its reliable results. The intuitive user interface along with the availability and power of the network synthesis and iFilter wizards were additional reasons that motivated them to use the software. The flexibility of importing the S-parameter files and interfacing between the network synthesis and iFilter wizards and the schematic window made it possible to efficiently design the LNA in a short amount of time and yet obtain very good results. The network synthesis wizard was extensively useful for generating the matching components to address the out-of-band impedance matching requirements since the bandpass filters required 50-ohm terminations to operate properly. This enabled the team to meet the out-of-band frequency response requirements.The designers cited the main benefits of using NI AWR software as including the ease of building the schematic and the high speeds and efficiency of the simulation runs, as well as the high accuracy of the results. The iFilter and network synthesis wizards were also key benefits because they automatically generated the components network topology and the components values from the definition of the frequency band and performance target parameters, which saved a great deal of time and iterations.Richardson RFPD, an Arrow Company, is a specialized electronic component distributor providing design engineers with deep technical expertise and localized global design support for the latest new products from the world’s leading suppliers of RF, wireless, internet of things (IoT) and power technologies.
