The IRIS-W1 module from u-blox lets IoT devices connect over Wi-Fi an Bluetooth while supporting Thread and Matter protocols.
Functional tester covers bench, production, and service applications
The midUTS from Bloomy contains a multimeter, data-acquisition, switching, and power supplies for testing boards and systems. Automating tests — whether for bench testing new designs, in production, or for service — increases productivity but comes at a price. If you’re going to build an automated test system all yourself, expect to specify the instrumentation, […]
APEC seminar shows the importance of power integrity
Three top power-integrity engineers explain why you must consider the complete power system. Looking at just the power supply is not nearly enough. “There’s a hard divide between power integrity and power electronics,” said Picotest’s Steve Sandler. What is he talking about, you might ask? Sandler, along with Keysight’s Heidi Barnes and Signal Edge Solutions’ […]
Reference design platform cuts 4G/5G radio design time
The ADRV904x-RD reference design from Analog Devices includes an 8T/8R transceiver and covers from RF to optical.
SoC adds security to smart-home devices
NXP’s EdgeLock SE051H SoC combines security protocols with the Matter Standard, which lets engineers build security into consumer devices.
Integrated into IoT devices, iSIM poised to make inroads
Power, price, security, and easy deployment could lead IoT companies to adopt iSIM over eSIM and plastic SIM cards.
5G repeaters to debut at MWC 2023
In the days leading up to MWC, Airgain, a company that produces embedded components, external antennas, and integrated systems, announced Lighthouse smart repeaters. Airgain said that the repeaters can significantly reduce an operator’s capital expenses for extending range while enhancing 5G coverage and improving customer experience. The repeaters use two Wi-Fi radios, one dedicated to…
