Competition in the handheld market continues to heat up, with Texas Instruments Inc. supplying the first non-Motorola processor for PDAs built by Palm Inc., and NeoMagic Corp. promising to bring a radical new processing architecture to 3G handsets next year.
Cutting GSM Costs Through Power Control/PA Integration
Design How-To  
11/5/2002   Post a comment
By combining power control and power amplification functionality in the same die, engineers can bring higher levels of integration to GSM handset transmit paths without sacrificing radio performance.
Programming DSPs in High-Level Languages
Design How-To  
11/5/2002   Post a comment
To make DSP software maintainable, reusable, and portable, you have to write the code in a high-level language, usual in C or a language based on C. This article from Associated Compiler Experts (ACE) suggests that the solution is to use one of several variants of the C language, along with advanced simulation tools and compilers.
A Beam Deflecting System For Holographic Storage Fast Data Reading
Design How-To  
11/5/2002   Post a comment
In this article, Renaud Kiefer and associates describe a compact addressing system for memory reading which combines micro-mirrors (or optical MEMS: microelectromechanical systems), acousto-optics, and gratings. MEMS are more convenient for this application than scanners such as galvanometric, oscillatory, or polygon mirrors due to the large mechanical deflection angles and high level of integration achievable with MEMS devices.
