In a video interview with Nextivity CEO Michiel Lotter, EE World looks at the technology behind cellular repeaters that distribute signals over Ethernet cables before rebroadcasting.
Add UWB hardware and software to IC designs
CEVA’s Riviera Waves IP lets you add an Ultra-Wideband digital PHY and hardware/software MAC layer to an IC design for use in low-power devices.
The challenges of building a 5G base station
To meet 3GPP specifications, a 5G New Radio (NR) implementation must meet demanding processing requirements and RF capabilities. Compared to LTE, this results in a need for higher performing, more flexible 5G NR hardware. Looking at 5G’s technical challenges, we see the frequencies and spectrum supported now include a sub-6 GHz range, FR1, with bandwidths…
Customizable sensor IC brings wireless to medical devices
EnSilica’s eSi-MediSense lets you add medical sensing and wireless connectivity to a handheld or wearable device, plus machine learning capabilities.
FPGA shrinks size and power
The Certus-NX FPGA from Lattice Semiconductor includes fast I/O and a hardened PCIe interface for connecting to local devices and to the outside world.
Add Wi-Fi 6 connectivity to your IoT device
iEW400 IP from Imagination Technologies lets you add the latest Wi-Fi connectivity to an FPGA, SoC, or ASIC, with focus on minimizing power consumption and increasing battery life.
Speeds go up, security gets harder
Rambus recently introduced IP that adds a security stack to support 800 Gbps communications links. You might think, “what does speed have to do with security?” Speed does matter in security.
DSP core processes 5G baseband data
5G Technology World spoke with Moshe Sheier and Nir Shapira of CEVA to learn how the company’s DSP core handles 5G baseband signals from I/O data to the transport network.
Add a 5G PHY to your design
PHYRefChain-5G from CommAgility lets you add a 5G physical later to an FPGA, ASIC, or other silicon device.
