Considering that most wireless devices need to be powered, it makes sense to invest in an emerging technology that provides wireless power. I could see many applications: cellphone/tablet/car charging on major highways (for a fee of course). Perhaps, in the conference rooms at companies and universities/colleges there would be power available for those in attendance. Some interesting possibilities to think about..

Well, Qualcomm isn't the only high -tech firm diversifying to energy sector. I think, its wireless portfolio will boost HaloIPT.

Moving towards energy industry seems very ambitious. A very long term plan is necessary so I have excited to see the commitment from Qualcomm. This company is moving so fast! From a small company selling IP, to a chip vendor and now moving towards a whole new system level in another industry. Good luck!

I'll just do some surfing on my Mirasol enabled tablet to see how successful they've been outside their area of core competency... or perhaps see if there is some relevant coverage on Flo TV.

This is a little strange considering that Qualcomm is a communications company and not a power company. What will qualcomm be up to now?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
