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.

EPC expands eToF laser driver IC family of products

EPC has introduced a laser driver that integrates a 40V, 10 A FET with a gate driver and low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) logic level input in a single chip for time-of-flight lidar systems used in robotics, drones, augmented reality, and gaming applications.

Antenna Company launches UWB antennas

The Antenna Company, a specialist in the design of high-performance embedded antennas, has unveiled a family of ultra-wideband (UWB) antennas to enable high precision positioning and angle-of-arrival applications for low-power sensors, anchors, and tags.

RSL10 Smart Shot camera

ON Semiconductor has introduced the RSL10 Smart Shot camera, which combines cloud-based AI with ultra-low-power image capture and recognition, to enable a new generation of IoT endpoints.

ST looks to simplify portable GNSS receivers

STMicroelectronics’ BPF8089-01SC6 RF front-end for Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers integrates the impedance-matching and electrostatic-discharge (ESD) protection circuitry typically implemented using discrete components.

Renesas expands RF portfolio

Renesas Electronics has extended its RF portfolio for traditional macro base transceiver stations (BTS) with four new high-reliability, high-performance devices, offering customers access to a complete RF signal chain solution.
