  • Understanding The Role Of IoT In Streamlining Battery Production

    Lithium batteries are among the most crucial components in modern electronics. As the Internet of Things (IoT) grows and electric vehicles (EVs) become more common, battery demand is surging. Meeting the rising pressure for production speed and quality can be challenging, but new technologies hold an answer. While the IoT is itself a key driver of battery demand, it plays a critical role in the manufacturing of these devices. Understanding its potential in this area is the first step in optimizing workflows to meet the growing need for reliable, widely available lithium-ion batteries.

  • The Promising Future Of Power Electronics

    It is estimated that by 2030, up to 80% of electric power worldwide will rely on power electronics in some capacity. This makes power electronics crucial for improving energy efficiency, reducing power consumption, and enabling the integration of renewable energy sources into the electrical grid.

IOT WHITE PAPERS, APPLICATION NOTES, CASE STUDIES, & BROCHURES

  • Matter is a universal software layer, a foundation for connected things and their application, will act as the universal IoT standard compatible with various protocols deployed in our homes today. With Matter, all ecosystem manufacturers can make it easier for product developers to innovate because the interoperability function is taken care of.

  • The number of connected devices in our homes continues to rise, and each device can be held to a different wireless standard. Qorvo explains how to manage multiple traffic standards within a connected home to keep communications between devices fast, efficient, scalable, and able to receive more data. 

  • Over-the-air (OTA) testing, something not historically possible with past generations of wireless devices, has the potential to revolutionize wireless device testing while enabling innovative testing of both advanced antenna systems (AAS) and antenna array technology.

  • Led by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), multiple portions of the spectrum ranging from the C band to the V band were either opened or auctioned to new uses throughout the year. These changes drive a variety of new opportunities for wireless device manufacturers and broadband and cellular carriers. These new opportunities result in a range of fresh challenges for RF technology vendors to help solve. 

  • Used in communications, radar sensors, and IoT, ultrawideband (UWB) technology uses an extremely high bandwidth of 500 MHz or more. The ETSI standard requires a resolution bandwidth of 50 MHz. This application note explains technical reasons for the bandwidth limitation and presents solutions for regulative UWB testing using the R&S®ESW. 

  • There’s a new standard in town and its name is CHIP – Connected Home Over the Internet Protocol. It aims to elevate consumers’ smart home experiences by making products more compatible. Up until now, we’ve had a range of protocols – Wi-Fi, Zigbee, Bluetooth® Low Energy, Thread, etc. This article provides a brief introduction to this standard. 

  • The SKY66430-11 is a multi-band multi-chip System-in-Package (SiP) supporting cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT platforms for use in wearables, alarm systems, security cameras, industrial monitoring devices, and low-power IoT devices. The SiP integrates the entire RF front end, transceiver, power management, memory, and baseband modem for an LTE multi-band radio operating in the 700 to 2200 MHz frequency range.

  • As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow and change the way consumers manage information in the environment, Skyworks has worked to expand its wireless connectivity product portfolio for the needs of every emerging market. These markets include automotive, connected home, industrial, machine-to-machine (M2M), medical, mobile devices, smart energy, and wearable technologies.
