This newest amplifier is made for electronic devices embedding a GPS function. It is the first low-noise amplifier that has integrated matching networks and a built-in power-down function, making this design smaller and cheaper. It runs well on the 1.575 GHz GPS frequency, with a power gain of 17 dB and noise figure of 1 .4 cB, and has a current consumption of 8.5 mA. It is stable, with a standby current consumption of as little as 10 nA. The amplifier maintains this performance even in an environment of -40 to 85C.
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
