Communications Technology

Connectivity is a key feature of modern embedded products. There’s a wide range of communications modes that can be used, but which is the best for your design? Should you use a wireless technology such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and, if so, which one should that be? Or would wired communication, such as Ethernet, be the best way forward?

In this section, New Electronics reviews the latest communications technologies and brings visitors to the website information on how these technologies are being applied.

Panasonic Industry Europe and OpenSynergy cooperate

At this year's electronica, Panasonic Industry Europe (PIDEU) and the software company OpenSynergy announced that they will be working closely together. The first result of this co-operation is the Bluetooth WLAN evaluation platform PAN 9026 ETU.

Proximity sensor features range up to 20cm

Vishay Intertechnology has introduced a fully integrated proximity sensor combining a high power vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL), a photodiode, a signal processing IC, and a 12-bit ADC in a single package.

NFC dynamic tag ICs from STMicroelectronics

STMicroelectronics has introduced a contactless way to program presets for products on the production line or in-situ and simplify setup or fine-tuning at the point of use, with its ST25DV-PWM NFC dynamic tags.
