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.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
