Taoglas Unveils Revolutionary 5G Antenna Series

In a move to accelerate the launch of 5G wireless communications networks around the world, Taoglas, a leading provider of IoT and M2M antenna and RF solutions, unveiled its new series of 5G massive MIMO antenna arrays, designed to allow customers to provide the fastest and best user experiences for the next generation of wireless communications. The new antennas — including the Adaptrix CMM200.A, which features a patent-pending, modular interlocking system to help operators scale quickly to meet the speed and capacity demands of 5G — were demonstrated at Embedded World fair in Nuremberg, Germany.

Wireless industry pundits have dubbed 2017 the year of 5G, as ultra-high-speed networks begin to move out of the proof of concept stage and into the field. Designed to support the growing demand from IoT devices and users for high-speed, low-latency connectivity for a growing multitude of use cases across industries, 5G networks need to be able to scale quickly to support demand, with the flexibility to accommodate different spectrum requirements and use cases as they emerge.

5G demands best-in-class solutions from a quality and performance perspective, and antennas are the critical link. The 5G communications hardware market needs precision, quality and even more engineering support than ever before. Like in the race to 4G LTE, Taoglas is the first antenna vendor on the device side to provide 5G antenna solutions and options.

New FRAM solution for automotive applications from Fujitsu

Non-volatile memory technology with extended temperature range (Compliant with AEC Q100)

Fujitsu Electronics Europe has launched its new FRAM (ferroelectric RAM) solution MB85RS256TY. It is the first component of a completely new product group which is designed for an operating temperature of up to 125°C and is qualified according to the AEC Q100 industry standard, making it particularly suitable for use in the automotive sector. With the new series, Fujitsu wants to serve various applications in the automotive market and support innovative projects.

The ever increasing demand from the automotive industry for electronic control systems, which access a wide variety of sensor data, has led to a growing demand for high-performance non-volatile memory technology. Only in this way can data collected by sensors be reliably stored without a delay - for example, for analysis purposes or for other forms of data processing. FRAM reduces system complexity and increases data integrity by allowing instant and continuous data storage in applications such as air bag data storage, event data recorders (EDR), battery management systems (BMS), automatic driving assistance systems (ADAS) or navigation and infotainment systems.

Murata introduces DMH supercapacitor featuring world’s lowest profile of 0.4mm

Supercapacitors have over a hundred times the capacity of ceramic capacitors and electrolytic capacitors, and as a storage device they have a longer working life than ordinary secondary batteries. Murata supercapacitors are small in size while having world-leading low ESR. By using the capacitor for peak power assist in small electronics, the product contributes to increased output and power stability as well as functional improvement of the device.

The currently launched DMH Series accommodates use in limited space, and it is ideal for use in various wearable devices, mobile electronics, smart cards, electronic paper devices, and similar applications.

The supercapacitor’s 4.5 V rated voltage provides peak power assist with lithium-ion batteries, and its 35mF large capacity and low ESR of 300mΩ enable peak power assist in tens of milliseconds with 1A.
