Fans of the sci-fi franchise Star Trek may recall a scene in the 1986 film Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home that mentions a make-believe material called transparent aluminum. A real-world version of it eventually emerged from Oxford University where researchers created a ceramic alloy (officially called Aluminum Oxynitride or ALON) by fusing aluminum, oxygen […]
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a Murata company and the founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator), today announces the acquisition of Arctic Sand Technologies. An MIT spin-off, Arctic Sand designs and manufactures low-power semiconductors for use in DC-DC power conversion applications. This strategic acquisition will accelerate Murata’s vision to revolutionize power electronics with the world’s smallest, […]
Electronic instrumentation maker Tektronix says it will outfit the R&D lab for Raspberry Pi with the latest Tektronix high-speed test gear. Raspberry Pi’s new laboratory will focus on high-speed serial design and validation testing. The new test equipment from Tektronix will deliver the kind of bandwidth necessary to support any future high-speed interfaces that would […]
By Matt Smith, Head of Cortet Engineering.

Long gone is our comfy relationship with 802.11b’s up to 11 Mbps and even our patience with its alpha-suffixed descendants at 54 Mbps (801.11a and 802.11g), 300 Mbps (802.11n), and 1Gbps (802.11ac). It’s not as if we ever approached or approach the theoretical maximums, anyway. It’s like the 20 bits of data returned from the […]
