State of National Microelectronics and Growth Prospects. The XI Research and practice industrial conference
Europe Microwave Technology Ambitious Aims Faced with unpredictable market conditions, the European RF and microwave industry must play to its strengths, stay focused and keep in the Euro zone. In solving the challenges that face European RF and microwave industry a key role plays European Unity that supports and finances European companies R&D. This article considers the support the industry is getting and the tactics it is employing to remain competitive and lead the way in technological innovation.
Adaptive Filters Current Simulation Instruments and Realization Examples Many current electronic systems utilize some form of digital signal processing. It is adaptive filtration. Both standard adaptive filters models and models developed by third-party organizations can be realized by modern CAD tools LabView and SystemView. Examples of adaptive filters realization on the basis of a digital signal processor (DSP) for further applying them in their equipment also offer DSP producers.
Processor Cores Optimization Actual Environment Evolution System-on-Chip (SoC) processor core performance often becomes the most important characteristic of the product, particularly when smart phones or tablets are concerned. To remain competitive a system-on-chip must not only be high performance but also meet the energy consumption and dimensions requirements. When realizing processor cores it’s necessary to keep in mind that the characteristics stated by IP-core producer may be beyond production grasp.
GSM modules: Applications and Producers In many applications it’s necessary to immediately report by wireless links the state of object of monitoring. One of the most common and handy instruments for this is a GSM module embedded in sensors located on the object. This article deals with the GSM modules features, their applications and what models today offer leading producers.
Monolithic Microwave ICs the technology Basis of AESA ASEA application rapid increase become possible thanks to evolution of monolithic microwaves ICs (MMIC) technology, Today the most utilized ASEA modules technology is based on GaAs IC. However in the last decade significant scientific-research projects on producing high performance MMICs on the basis of GaN were fullfiled. This article considers the technology state and current MMIC development trends as well as examples of radars with GaAs and GaN ASEAs that became a part of novelty electronics armament control systems.
SAW RF Labels Construction Peculiarities and Technology It’s impossible to make new automatic identification equipment and update existing systems without evolution of SAW RF dies mounting technology. LTCC mounting technology of SAW RF labels dies allows to create basic constructions of miniature SAW RF label modules of various precision that expand identification and control systems functional capabilities, decrease their mass and dimensions parameters and resolve the import substitution problem of electronic components base.
Harsh Environment Ethernet Switches There is no need to mention that today Ethernet is the most commonly used technology for LAN organization. This technology and the component base for its realization expand in two ways: increasing data transmission speed and developing solutions for harsh environments. Here we consider realization of these solutions be the example of switches and media converters from Amphenol Socapex.
RF Serial Bridge Wireless Serial Interfaces Extender/Converter Remote smart systems peripherals communication with CPU through serial ports can provide interface converters that match devices whose interfaces are incompatible for communications. A powerful and reliable device for industrial applications is a wireless extender/converter RF Serial Bridge.
Electronic Load AKIP – An Effective LED Drivers Test Instrument Today great attention is paid to technical approval of various power sources including those that are used with LEDs. To solve this problem it is accessible to use electronic loads. This article reviews new electronic loads modules series AKIP-1334, AKIP-1335, AKIP-1336 and in particular their capabilities for testing LED drivers.
Flexible Printed Batteries and Accumulators Technology and Development Outlook We continue to announce organic and printed electronics achievements. Any compact electronic device (printed as well as conventional) is impossible without a power source. Modern electronics industry technologies permit to produce printed power source components that are used in a verity of products.
Programmable Power Sources Z+ New Generation, New Capabilities In 2011 TDK-Lambda announced a new family of advanced power sources Z+ that permit to copy and store in a memory the free form of current and voltage even without an external device, This article gives consideration to this family and its other features.
Жидкокристаллические дисплеи Возможные применения СЖК. Часть 2 High speed provided by helicoidal and non helicoidal SLC structures developed at FIAN permits to expect their extensive application in new generation displays especially in 3D displays, as well as achievement in devices on their basis new quality and performance yet unobtainable because of limited NLC speed.
