Corry Micronics’ line of high power RF amplifiers feature up to 40% efficiency, an extended temperature range of -20oC to 55oC for MIL-STD applications, and status monitoring signals that provide diagnostic information.
The first 5G smartphones could make their way to store shelves as early as next year, and 5G-connected cars could hit roads by 2020, according to major industry players who are shaping the fast-emerging 5G ecosystem.
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.
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.
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.
Layered two-dimensional materials that are as efficient, but thinner than, silicon semiconductors, could power future electronic circuits and devices, according to Stanford researchers.
