The SKY81452 is a 6-channel, high efficiency, high resolution, white LED driver featured with touch screen driver supply for tablet-display applications. The driver allows system engineers to implement sophisticated 10-bit-plus dimming algorithms to improve dimming quality and increase battery life. It also incorporates an I2C adjustable voltage output to power touch screen driver IC’s, thereby reducing the system bill-of-materials count and cost while simplifying display system development.
This article is the first part in a two-part series on the topic of small cell base stations. Part 1 covers the basics of small cells and how they fit into the evolution of 4G and 5G.
Ireland's Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg) has awarded 15-year licenses for the 3.6 Ghz spectrum to five mobile operators who paid €78 million ($87.8 million) between them for the right to offer 5G services.
Qualcomm has demonstrated a dynamic electric vehicle charging (DEVC) wireless technology using embedded road pads that charge electric vehicles up to 20 kilowatts while moving at highway speeds, eliminating the need for electric cars to stop at a charging station.
The world’s communications and other connected technologies are evolving rapidly toward 5G in the hope of bringing about new and exciting solutions for deep learning, artificial intelligence, and “ambient awareness.”
Researchers at the University of Bristol have developed a novel radio frequency (RF) design tool that will help engineers design and build tuneable wireless devices capable of operating over multiple frequencies in 5G networks anywhere in the world.
