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.

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.

Dual-polarized H/V omni antenna

KP Performance Antennas, a manufacturer of wireless network antennas, has unveiled a horizontal/vertical polarized Omni antenna with an integrated radio case that fits most popular radios from Cambium and Ubiquiti.

High frequency chip equalizer

Smiths Interconnect has released a series of high frequency surface mount chip equalisers for controlling gain variation up to 40GHz with a maximum slope of 4dB.

High SOA MOSFETs for 48V hot swap telecom applications

Alpha and Omega Semiconductor, a supplier of a broad range of power semiconductors, power ICs, and Digital Power products, has announced the release of the AOTL66518 and AOB66518L, a 150V MOSFET with low on-resistance and a high Safe Operating Area (SOA) capability.

New line of rugged, affordable CBRS antennas

KP Performance Antennas has released a CBRS antenna line intended for WISP and enterprise applications, including four models: a 4-port Omni, a 4-port 90-degree sector antenna, a 2-port 15-degree flat panel, and a 2-port 60-degree flat panel.
