Sagem My700x Mobile Phone (http://rbi.ims.ca/4930-515). RF technology in the Sagem cell phone includes GSM, General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE). EDGE wireless technology allows the mobile downloading of video and music clips, full multimedia messaging, high-speed color Internet access and e-mail at rates up to 220 Kbits/sec. Sagem engineers chose Freescale Semiconductor's RFX275-20, a quad-band Class 12 GSM/GPRS/EDGE transceiver and front-end power amplifier module for its high level of integration. The IC's 250 mm 2 footprint provides antenna-to-bits functionality for all three RF formats. For more information about Freescale Semiconductor's EDGE RF Subsystem, go tohttp://rbi.ims.ca/4930-516.
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.
