We are living in the Digital Age. Every day we interact with a multitude of electronic devices which are increasingly pervasive, mobile, and highly integrated. As Moore’s law continues to hold true, mobile and embedded systems will become even more … Read more
Wireless connectivity is a prerequisite in most user devices today, from laptops, to phones, tablets, e-readers, etc. Usually radios reside on a separate die from the application processor, resulting in bulkier devices. Integration of the radio and application processor would enable smaller form factors for slimmer devices (maybe even miniature wearable devices), and can also reduce the cost of the overall solution. The low cost of such integrated processor+radio platform can further enable a host of new applications towards the vision of the “internet of things” where devices such as home appliances, sensors, etc communicate with each other, exchange information and can be actuated remotely.
Rapid growth in mobile traffic demand from smart phones, tablets and from bandwidth-hungry video applications have strained today’s networks. This significant challenge especially affects networks with licensed spectrum, which is costly scarce and technology for its efficient use is nearly … Read more
My commute today was relatively trouble-free. No accidents jammed the highways; the rain had stopped for a brief period thus improving visibility; and from what I heard the light rail was running without a hitch. Mind you, it still took … Read more
