Engineers designing IoT devices need to focus on the hardware and software for their device’s applications such as smart meters, logistics tracking devices, and so on. For many designers, connectivity is not their area of expertise. Soracom, a provider and SIM cards and eSIM devices for IoT, has partnered with Sony Semiconductor (formerly Altair) and […]
Our 2023 5G, Wired, & Wireless Handbook is now available in ebook form. Download your copy today. It started on a cold January day with an editorial call. A month later, the abstracts came in. After another month, the manuscripts came in. Then came the editing and some back-and-forth with the authors. Next, it was…
The high level of integration in today’s mmWave phone means traditional test methods no longer apply.
Engineers have several mmWave over-the-air test methods available for evaluating phased-array antennas used in antenna-in-package designs. Each has pros and cons.
The IRIS-W1 module from u-blox lets IoT devices connect over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth while supporting Thread and Matter protocols. IoT module company u-blox has announced the IRIS-W1, which the company claims is the first stand-alone Wi-Fi module to combine dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) 5.3, and Thread including support for Matter protocols. Based […]
5G private networks show potential for a wide range of diverse applications. Engineers can implement features to address the requirements of markets such as manufacturing and non-terrestrial networks.
Featuring 15 articles, the 2022 5G Handbook looks at private networks, timing, connectivity, latency, mmWaves, test, and other topics.
The economics of manufacturing test directly affect how you plan for the right number of test stations and test sites. Adding mmWave testing makes the difference.
Edge computing brings benefits to users by reducing network latency, thus improving services, but needs management orchestration. Here, we demonstrate how orchestration improves latency in an automotive edge-computing use case by reallocating network resources. Multi-access edge computing (MEC), commonly called “edge computing,” moves data processing to the edge of communication networks. Bringing computing close to…
As the number of cell sites increase and their sizes decrease, engineers have options to consider for battery backup. Differing battery chemistries offer more choices and different performance levels. Selecting the right battery chemistry for each application is critical to ensure reliable, long lasting, and cost-effective power delivery.
