Analog Devices, Inc. announced the Drive360 28nm CMOS RADAR technology platform that builds on its established ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), MEMS, and RADAR technology portfolio widely used throughout the automotive industry for the past 20 years. Analog Devices is the first to offer automotive RADAR technology based on an advanced 28nm CMOS process and the […]
You may someday be able to just walk into a room and have your mobile device recharge while it sits in your pocket if researchers from Disney Research perfect their new charging-at-a-distance scheme. They say quasistatic cavity resonance (QSCR) can let special structures such as cabinets, rooms, and warehouses, generate magnetic fields that safely deliver […]
At CES 2017, Theodore Marescaux, Chief Executive Officer from Muuselabs demonstrates how Jooki, a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth jukebox designed for small children can detect different play lists in characters that are easily recognized by children. The box senses the presence/proximity of the character and immediately implements the playlist. Each character is easily programmed by adults so children […]
At CES 2017, Vincent Maxime, Product Manager from Enerbee describes how the use of airflow, temperature, humidity, CO2, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and pressure measurements with the Bluetooth connectivity of the Enerbee Smart Vent can provide a …
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. introduced its next-generation 10Gbps-class millimeter wave (mmWave) modem for wireless infrastructure carrier-class deployments in both access and backhaul. The IDT® RWM6050 is the industry’s first highly integrated mmWave dual modem (PHY + MAC + ADC/DAC + beam forming) targeting applications such as fixed wireless broadband access, WTTx (Wireless To The Edge), […]
CEL is introducing low-cost pHEMTs (pseudomorphic High Electron Mobility Transistor) targeted for Ku and Ka Band Satellite Receiver applications. These CEL pHEMTs are drop-in replacements to the Renesas pHEMTs, also offered by CEL. Typical applications are LNBs (Low Noise Block) in Digital Broadcast Systems (DBS), and downconverters in VSAT systems and 24GHz sensors. These new […]
