Solving the challenges of eMobility with Quectel’s dual band, multi-constellation GNSS modules

Solving the challenges of eMobility with Quectel’s dual band, multi-constellation GNSS modules

GNSS has been widely adopted as a method to track and trace large items such as ships, trucks, heavy equipment, cars and high-value freight. However, when it comes to smaller or lower value things, deployment has been constrained by the power demands of GNSS, the necessary form factor and the ability to site antennas on smaller items in ways that can enable them to track satellites effectively.

UK launches social care robot challenge

UK launches social care robot challenge

The Challenge runs from now, and will culminate in a daylong public presentation of collaborative learnings in Central London on Friday June 30, 2017, during the second annual UK Robotics Week 2017 (taking place from 24th – 30th June 2017).

The collaborative research themes will be agreed via themed workshops to be held during Spring 2017, addressing issues including assisted mobility; personal hygiene; social support; preventative and rehabilitation monitoring; remote assistance; and food preparation.

AI ethics under scrutiny

AI ethics under scrutiny

Initially funded with $27 million from the Knight Foundation; LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman; the Omidyar Network; the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation; and Jim Pallotta, founder of the Raptor Group, the new fund will also seek to advance public understanding of AI.

IoT boost with 400nA BLE mesh module

Bluetooth Low Energy module targets ultra-low power IoT

The company’s first Bluetooth Low Energy 5 module, the RYZ012, integrates a 2.4 GHz RF transceiver supporting the IEEE802.15.4 multi-standard wireless protocol, Bluetooth Low Energy (LE), Bluetooth LE Mesh, and ZigBee.

The RYZ012 features a power draw of only 0.4 µA during deep sleep (without SRAM retention) allowing customers to extend battery life. It also includes a battery monitor to measure battery capacity and detect low power in battery-operated devices.

Cloud-based RTL tool for embedded RISC-V cores

Codasip has added a cloud-based RTL simulator from Metrics Design Automation to its SweRV support package for the latest RISC-V embedded processor cores from Western Digital.

Western Digital is not a name you expect to be supplying open source processor cores. But its SweRV cores, based on the RISC-V open source architecture, are aimed at deeply embedded system-on-chip applications.

The SweRV cores available through another RISC-V core supplier, Czech processor tool designer Codasip, which has its own customisable RISC-V cores. Codasip has just done a deal to use the cloud-based SystemVerilog RTL Simulation Platform from Metrics Design Automation with SweRV support package.

Lab-on-a-chip startup gets Covid-19 test boost

Lab-on-a-chip startup NudgeDNA in the UK is to supply 5000 of its Covid-19 test systems to hospitals

A UK startup that has developed a lab-on-a-chip system for DNA analysis has seen a boost from the UK government in a deal for Covid-19 test systems.

Field testing of first 800G live network trial

The WaveAnalyzer and WaveShaper test systems from II‐VI have been used on the first live network trial of 800Gbit/s transmission on a single channel.

II‐VI has teamed with Windstream for field testing of the first live network trial of 800G transmission on a single channel.

Network operators are increasingly planning to deploy 800G transmission technology, driving the demand for portable test and measurement instruments with advanced capabilities. Windstream demonstrated the 800Gbit/s link over 730km on its long-haul network between San Diego, California and Phoenix, Arizona.

Miniature PCIe M.2 BGA SSD for industrial designs

The Swissbit EN-20 is a high performance, high endurance, low power single component solid state drive (SSD) with a 4x PCIe interface

Swissbit has launched a single chip with a high speed PCIe SSD interface in a 3.2cm² BGA package.

The EN-20 is an industrial grade SSD with up to 480GB capacity and 4 lane PCIe 3.1 / NVMe 1.3 specification. It enables high performance and high reliability for small size embedded systems, factory automation, routers and switches, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and medical systems.
