Long Term Evolution (LTE)-based 4G technology is reshaping the wireless infrastructure landscape, and that brings a new set of opportunities for IP core licensor CEVA Inc. and its DSP offerings for multi-mode LTE base stations.
LTE devices—both handsets and radio base stations—are haunted by power constraints, mainly due … Read More
What does system on chip (SoC) actually mean? How this tech moniker came into being? There is quite a bit of enigma about SoC in the technology press and what this term really stands for. Roger Shepherd, consultant at Parallel Computer Systems, shares on Quora his version of the SoC story. He says that he first heard about SoCs when … Read More
DNA sequencing — which provides vital information on genetics study, forensics, diagnostics and therapies — has been an exclusive territory of high-end research labs with millions of dollars to spend because of the expensive chemical and optical equipment needed for research. That is changing, thanks to complex… Read More
Standard wars are no stranger to technology business. In fact, they are the norm. Take, for instance, the rock star technology of 2015—wireless charging. Magnetic induction or magnetic resonance: which standard will dominate the wireless power ecosystem?
That’s the crucial question while wireless charging continues to win… Read More
QuickLogic Corp.—the former FPGA maker that reinvented itself through configurable design for consumer electronics (CE) products—is taking its sensor hub arsenal to high pitch at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Sensor hub, a companion to application processor, offloads data from sensors… Read More
Operational amplifiers, which are among the most widely used analog components found in nearly all types of electronic systems, are migrating toward zero-drift capability and much-greater range of voltages at the supplies and the inputs. Take Linear Technology Corp.’s LTC2057HV, a zero-drift operational amplifier, which… Read More
System-on-chip (SoC) devices are increasingly becoming more complex in terms of adding functionality yet they need to be more reliable and fault tolerant for automotive, aerospace and industrial electronics.
Arteris Inc.—which invented the network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect technology back in 2006—is now offering FlexNoC… Read More
The global rollout of fourth-generation wireless (4G) infrastructure requires new architectural frameworks for RF devices with demands like high linearity. Integrated Device Technology (IDT) Inc. is confident that its high-performance RF solutions for high-bandwidth communications will open a new window of opportunity… Read More
The Internet of Things (IoT) is apparently the next big thing, but it tends to appear in different ways to different people. To some it’s all about connectivity of the web of devices and to other it’s synonymous with sensors and wearable devices. And the scope of IoT is expanding by the day—to smart lighting, smart thermostats, smart… Read More
