Yuden's latest lines of chip filters
optimize the performance, while minimizing the size, of mobile phones. The
compact EIA 0603 size multilayer dual low pass filter is designed for use with
multi-band smartphones, while two new optimized EIA 0805 size multilayer
diplexers were developed for use with mobile phones. Taiyo Yuden chip filters
for the cellular band field are based on experience with and development of
multilayer filters and chip antennas for non-cellular band applications, such
as wireless LAN, Bluetooth and GPS.
The EIA 0603 size dual low pass filter F1168D087018 measures 1.6 x 0.8 mm with
a maximum height of 0.45 mm and two differing frequency band low pass filters
(the GSM telecommunication standard low band and a high band) are combined into
a single part. This reduction in parts and surface mount area contribute to a
smaller overall device size. Smartphones equipped with dual low pass filter
technology meet the wireless communication standards that are required to
achieve high-speed data transmission.
The EIA 0805 size F1212P089208 and F1212P089213 (2.0 x 1.25 x 0.90 mm each)
multilayer diplexers are optimized for the RF send/receive systems of
multi-band mobile phones. To meet the growing demand for multiple frequency
band support, a multi-antenna method is often utilized. Two antennas for
different frequency bands are used for sending and receiving RF signals, with a
diplexer that performs the required multiplexing and de-multiplexing
operations. This often results in a higher component count and increased
mounting space requirements.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
