Within the world of electronics developments in Communications Hardware can be crucial to design engineers. At New Electronics we are aware of the importance of staying abreast of the recent advances in and the impact it can have on your role, that’s why we have collated all the latest news in one place.

Module to speed connected smart object development

Looking to help designers to streamline the prototyping and development of connected smart objects, STMicroelectronics has created the SPBTLE-1S, said to be a ready-to-use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module that integrates all the components needed to complete the radio subsystem. The module integrates ST’s BlueNRG-1 application-processor SoC and balun, high-frequency oscillators and a chip antenna.

Flexible displays can be read in daylight

Flexible displays manufactured by Plastic Logic are now available from Review Display Systems (RDS). The glass-free electrophoretic active matrix displays are shatterproof, bendable and readable in daylight.

Compact TFT display has Rugged+ performance

The 4.2in Rugged+ thin film transistor (TFT) display from LCD manufacturer KOE is said to feature the latest generation of in-plane switching (IPS) technology, wide quarter VGA resolution of 480 x 272 pixels, a 16:9 wide aspect ratio and an extended operating temperature range.

Antennas work on metal surfaces without de-tuning

A family of antennas from Antenova has been engineered to operate without de-tuning on metal surfaces or where the product housing is mainly metal. According to the company, these situations normally make it difficult for an antenna to operate.

First 2.5 and 5Gbit/s octal Ethernet transceiver

Marvell has announced the Alaska M 88E2180 Gigabit Ethernet transceiver, which it claims to be the first compatible with both the IEEE 802.3bz standard and the NBASE-T AllianceSM specification for 2.5 and 5Gbit/s operation over CAT5e cables.

Solution to maintain colour stability and lumen output

The AS7220 Smart Lighting Manager from ams uses closed-loop sensing to maintain accurate correlated colour temperature (CCT) and lumen output. The company claims the solution could enable a new generation of higher quality LED-based lamps and luminaires.

Production ready IoT module

Said to be production ready, the Samsung ARTIK 053 module provides high-performance and hardened security for next-generation edge applications such as connected home appliances, building products, health care devices and industrial automation.

SiGe based amplifier outperforms other devices

The LTC6432-15 from Linear Technology is a wideband fully differential amplifier with 15dB gain. According to the company, recently acquired by Analog Devices, it offers a linearity of up to +50.3dBm at the output third-order intercept (OPI3dB), an output 1dB compression point (OP1dB) of +22.7dBm and a 3.2dB noise figure at 150MHz.

Ethernet switch chip is ‘TSN ready’

A real-time Ethernet Multi-protocol (REM) switch chip from Analog Devices is said to form part of its high performance deterministic Ethernet connectivity portfolio for connected motion and Intelligent Factory applications.

SiP blends MCU and sub GHz radio

The SAM R30 from Microchip is a system in package (SiP) device integrating a SAM L21 microcontroller alongside an IEEE802.15.4 sub GHz. According to the supplier, the SiP delivers design flexibility and proven reliability, making it suitable for connected home, smart city and industrial applications.

Imec develops bifacial n-PERT solar cell

Bifacial n-PERT solar cells have been realised using an industrially-compatible process with a front-side conversion efficiency of 22.8%, according to Imec. Featuring a transparent backside and comparable front- and back contact schemes, bifacial solar cells capture light on both sides of the cell.
