Under DARPA’s Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI), research teams from academia, commercial industry and the defense industrial base have been selected to address today’s SoC design complexity and cost barriers.
SiTime Corp. and Intel announced a collaboration to work together on integrating timing solutions for Intel’s 5G multi-mode radio modems, with additional applicability to Intel LTE, mmWave wireless, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GNSSsolutions.
Anritsu Co. introduces PIM over CPRI software for its BTS Master™ MT8220T and MT822xB handheld base station analyzers that allow passive intermodulation (PIM) measurements to be made from the ground for the first time.
Telefónica and SEAT have presented the first use case in Segovia within the framework of the 5G Technological Cities project by equipping a both a vehicle and road infrastructure with technology enabling the exchange of information, making it the first step towards V2X vehicular communication using existing mobile networks in a real urban setting.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has awarded Micro Harmonics an SBIR contract to develop low loss, millimeter wave isolators optimized for cryogenic systems. With few cryogenically-rated isolators available at frequencies above 40 GHz, the SBIR program will develop components NASA designers can use to improve performance in millimeter wave and terahertz systems.
$44 billion tech deal just became the latest casualty in the escalating US-China trade war

Qualcomm confirmed it was terminating its proposed takeover of Dutch counterpart NXP on Thursday after China failed to grant it regulatory approval. Qualcomm said it would proceed with a stock buyback of up to $30 billion that it had promised shareholders should the NXP deal fall apart. NXP also announced Thursday that it would buy back shares worth $5 billion.
To help overcome the challenges of creating extremely SWaP-constrained microrobotics, DARPA is launching a new program called SHort-Range Independent Microrobotic Platforms (SHRIMP). The goal of SHRIMP is to develop and demonstrate multi-functional micro-to-milli robotic platforms for use in natural and critical disaster scenarios.
