Audi will demonstrate Matrix OLED rear lights in a concept car at the IAA in Frankfurt. According to the German car manufacturer, the benefits of using OLEDs is that they are homogenous light sources which do not require any reflectors, light guides or similar optical components. Audi predicts that research will soon produce OLEDs with sufficient light density be used as indicator signal and brake lights too. The thin glass sheets that are used today to encaseRead more
Rohde & Schwarz has added more trigger and decoder options for its RTO and RTE oscilloscopes so that they can be used to debug serial protocols that employ Manchester or NRZ coding. This coding is typically used with interface buses such as Profibus, Dali or MVB. It is also used in the aerospace and defence sector in proprietary serial protocols. The RTx-K50 trigger option covers data rates of up to 5Gbit/s and supports up to 50 different telegram formats.Read more
Crystek has launched an Ultra-Low Phase Noise HCMOS Voltage-Controlled Crystal Oscillator (VCXO) providing a -150 dBc/Hz noise floor. This overall ultra-low phase noise translates to a typical phase jitter of 0.5 psec (12 kHz to 80 MHz). Packaged in a 9×14 mm SMD package, the CVHD-952 is available from 131 MHz to 200 MHz. Input supply voltage of 3.3 Vdc consuming 25 mA of current is required. Extended temperature operating range of -40°C to +85°CRead more
IDT is selling a digital pre-distortion (DPD) demodulator operating from 3200MHz to 4000MHz which enhances the performance of the digital pre-distortion transmitter linearization path of cellular base stations. With its integrated digital step attenuator (DSA) and single-pole-double-throw switch (SP2T), the F1358 DPD joins two other demodulators—the F1320, operating at 400 MHz to 1200 MHz, and the F1370, operating at 1300 MHz to 2900 MHz. All of the DPD demodulators feature IDT’s patented Zero-Distortion™ and Glitch-Free™Read more
TaOx filaments at 40nm Intel’s super fast flash using a 3D cross-point architecture is not the only advanced semiconductor memory game in town. Another of the more interesting next generation memory technologies is resistive RAM (ReRAM). This is particularly interesting for integrated large volume embedded memory on to processors to provide high speed memory access. Imec and Panasonic have been working on improving the stability of ReRAM during read operations and they claim to haveRead more
ON Semiconductor has developed a range of image co-processors to work with 1.2 and 2 megapixel image sensors specifically in automotive rear view and surround view cameras. According to Sandor Barna, vice president at ON Semiconductor, the processor will support both 1080p and 720p video in automotive applications. “We have added higher resolution, multiple interfaces and new automotive-targeted features such as ASIL support,” said Barna. The AP0200, AP0201 and AP0202 support up to 2 MP 1080p image sensors, and the AP0102ATRead more
Connected vehicles will create a new business opportunity proving the internet-based mobile services to the driver. Car manufacturers will soon be competing against technology companies to provide the online services to connected cars. Autonomous connected vehicles are seen as the first major market for so-called internet of things (IoT). This will be an important market for IC and hardware system suppliers. But arguably the biggest market opportunity will be in the provision v of onlineRead more
Murata has developed a water-repellent coating that it claims will increase the reliability of multi-layer ceramic capacitors. At issue is condensation – not just between the PCB and he capacitor, but on any capacitor surface that can gather condensation. When water wets the surface of the capacitor – top diagram – electromigration of electrode metals can occur which can eventually grow into a short circuit between the capacitor electrodes. With the anti-wetting coating, which isRead more
USB Type-C Could a USB connector support 4K high definition video? This is what the industry intends and a new look USB connector is likely to start appearing in PCs, TVs and mobiles over the next year. The Type-C connector, as it is called, is expected to take over from the micro USB as the standard connector for multi-gigabit USB 3.0 interfaces. What do USB Type-C connectors offer over the Type-A and Type-B USB connectors weRead more
Car-hacking demonstrations have recently shown the vulnerability of mobile connections to hackers ARM has bought the five year-old Israeli security firm Sansa which has a hardware solution for mobile connectivity. The price is thought to be somewhere around $90 million. Sansa, which was called Discretix until last October, has had $37 million of venture capital money and is backed by both Sequoia and Accel, among others. Car-hacking demonstrations have recently shown the vulnerability of mobile connectionsRead more
Drew Nelson President Obama and Vice President Biden IQE has been announced as a key partner in a new consortium to establish the United States’ first Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation (IP-IMI). Created as part of President Obama’s National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI), the IP-IMI was launched this week in Rochester, NY by US Vice President Biden as the sixth of nine new manufacturing institutes designed to bring industry together with academia andRead more
Server power measured per programme by Fujitsu Aiming to cut power waste in data centres, Fujitsu Labs has developed a way to determine how much energy each programme running on a CPU consumes. It adds to the capability, called RAPL, of some Intel CPUs to measure overall power consumption. “According to a report by the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan’s datacenters consume an average of 7.72 billion kWh per year,” said Fujitsu. “OneRead more
