TriQuint LNAs target broadband apps Product News 6/29/2011 Post a comment TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. has released four low noise amplifiers (LNAs) that are designed to eliminate matching components for a wide range of high-performance broadband applications, including 3G/4G base station networks, mobile network base stations, repeaters, point-to-point radios, test and other high-performance applications.
ST's fast-write EEPROM for low-cost blackbox recorders simplifies design Product News 6/28/2011 1 comment The new M35B32 EEPROM from STMicroelectronics has a unique ultra-fast recording feature for storing important data during unexpected events. Its uses include recovering system data when a sudden power failure occurs, and ‘black-box’ recorders that help identify the causes of equipment failures or accidents.
RFICs integrate ESD, RF overdrive, DC overvoltage Product News 6/27/2011 Post a comment TriQuint Semiconductor recently released the first members in a new family of integrated RF amplifiers that aim to lower power consumption while protecting mobile networks from disruption and service failures across 0.4 to 4GHz.
Tilera launches many-core 64-bit processor Product News 6/24/2011 3 comments Fabless many-core processor vendor Tilera Corp. has launched its Tile-Gx 3000 family of 40-nm processors claiming they provide a 10-fold improvement over Intel's SandyBridge processor in terms of performance-per-watt.
Microchip's new RF power amps target embedded WAN Product News 6/21/2011 Post a comment Microchip Technology Inc. has expanded its RF power amplifier portfolio with the addition of the new SST12LP17E and SST12LP18E devices. The SST12LP17E is the smallest fully matched power amp in its class, requiring only one DC bypass capacitor to achieve optimum performance. The SST12LP18E is a lower-cost, lower-voltage alternative to Microchip’s popular SST12LP14E power amp.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
