RF integration: Full SoC, or just a SiP?
The radio-frequency circuitry in mobile and portable devices remains some of the most resistant to integration. RF devices are very picky about who their neighbors are, and they sometimes find surprising ways to add interference to the signals they are responsible for handling. Details... more »
MEMS the word for timing chips
Today, quartz crystals provide the heartbeat for nearly every electronic system, with annual volumes approaching 10 billion units. Details... more »
Power punch to the middle
We can visualize the four levels of "digital power," as most designers do, as progressing from on/off control for basic power management to full digital control for advanced dc/dc power conversion. Details... more »
