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.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
