The IRIS-W1 module from u-blox lets IoT devices connect over Wi-Fi an Bluetooth while supporting Thread and Matter protocols.
Triple-radio and multiprotocol MCUs add application processors
The RW612 and K32W148 from NXP add processors to bring application processing on-chip, reducing complexity through fewer parts and using less board space in smart home devices.
2022: The 5G predictions
Several standouts for 2022 reached our editorial offices. We present them here. As one year ends and another begins, so come the predictions. Over the past two years, we’ve seen how predicting the upcoming year is harder than ever. That doesn’t stop anyone from trying, though. How many of us throught we’ve still be dealing…
5G and AIoT will need new semiconductor materials
Technologies such as gate-all-around FETs and neuromorphic analog memory will increase speed and reduce power consumption in the chiplets that control artificial intelligence of things devices and systems. While 5G provides improved speed to consumers, it’s the industrial, automotive, infrastructure, and IoT applications that make 5G stand out. These applications will need IoT devices that…
Private networks need engineering creativity
LTE and 5G private networks are not yet plug-and-play. They still need the engineering touch to solve business problems, said Cradlepoint’s Todd Krautkremer and Donna Johnson.
Antenna transmits, receives 915 MHz ISM and LoRaWAN signals
The Fera antenna from Antenova uses a flexible design that can fit into small spaces.
Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules offer pad or chip antennas
The Innophase INP1012 and INP1013 modules run on little power, saving battery time in IoT devices.
Convention hall to become 5G test location
The Deutsche Messe exhibition site in Hanover, Germany will get a private 5G network for testing products and applications.
