Six-Channel White LED Backlight Driver for Tablet Displays: SKY81452
Six-Channel White LED Backlight Driver for Tablet Displays: SKY81452

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.

  • 802.11ax: 5 Things To Know

    The current Wi-Fi standard, 802.11ac, works very well in a home environment. However, as with previous Wi-Fi standards, it may reach its limits around 2022 when there could be up to 50 nodes in a home. The 802.11ax network is the next evolution in the IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi standard and will become prevalent in very dense environments, such as urban apartment complexes, college campuses, concert venues, or sports stadiums, where many clients will access the internet over Wi-Fi. This article presents five key aspects of the new 802.11ax network and the next generation of Wi-Fi.

  • Tiny Membrane-Based Acoustic Antennas Could Shrink Electronic Devices

    Nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) antennas that resonate with acoustic waves, rather than with electromagnetic waves alone, could significantly reduce the size of electronic devices, according to a team of scientists at Northeastern University in Boston.

  • Smart Homes For Seniors: How The IoT Can Help Aging Parents Live At Home Longer

    The population of adults 85 and older in the U.S. will roughly triple between 2015 and 2060, making it the fastest-growing age group over this time period. This has become a major concern for families taking care of seniors who will be living on their own. Qorvo’s Senior Lifestyle System has been tested and used for the last 15 years in assisted living communities in Europe to help seniors live more independently. Within a few weeks, this system learns the routine day-to-day activities of the senior resident, provides intelligent status updates in a dashboard app, and sends alerts to designated caregivers if something unexpected happens.

  • Ultra-Thin Diselenides Could Supplant Silicon In Next-Generation Electronics

    Layered two-dimensional materials that are as efficient, but thinner than, silicon semiconductors, could power future electronic circuits and devices, according to Stanford researchers.
