Top Three Considerations Regarding Interface Development
Design How-To  
1/22/2004   Post a comment
When semiconductor companies plan their chip development, their focus tends to center on the area where they add the most value, namely the core. Regrettably, I/O development is often taken for granted and/or pushed to the end of the development cycle. In fact, disregard for the importance of I/O development can jeopardize the success of the chip. The most advanced core is rendered useless if the data cannot get on and off the chip at optimal frequency and throughput levels. A well-thought-out p
LCD digit driver helps reduce component count for feature phones
News & Analysis  
1/21/2004   Post a comment
Austriamicrosystems' AS2591 is a CMOS IC used for driving LCDs with four backplanes and 24 (or 31) segments. This arrangement provides 12 (or 16) 7-segment digits " and 12 symbols. It is meant to provide an easy interface for the miniature alpha-numeric displays used in cellular handsets and feature phones. One of the company's engineers shows how the display driver helps build a "handsfree" cell phone (available as a reference design) with a low component count.

Mesh networks gather steam with standards
Product News  
1/5/2004   Post a comment
Many organizations recognize the value that a wireless mesh network can provide, but are unsure whether they should implement one that is managed or ad hoc. The decision revolves around how to implement an authentic network without wires: one that is scalable, secure, managed and architected for performance. The need for mesh networking and its many inherent advantages has led to a call for standards in ad hoc networks that should solve many of the outstanding issues.
