Linx Technologies' new DP1203 Series radio-only RF transceiver module is designed for the wireless transmission of digital data at data rates of up to 152.3 kbps. Operating in the 433, 868 and 915 MHz license-free ISM (industrial scientific and medical) frequency bands, this module series is ideal for applications that require full-control of the radio channels and configuration, without having to go through the effort and expense of a discrete RF design.
As part of the U.S. Safety Pilot Model Deployment, the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) will launch a motorcycle study to determine how cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles interact using V2V (Vehicle-to-Vehicle) communications technology from Cohda Wireless.
Astronomers using the new Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have imaged a region around a young star where dust particles can grow by clumping together. This is the first time that such a dust trap has been clearly observed and modelled. It solves a long-standing mystery about how dust particles in discs grow to larger sizes so that they can eventually form comets, planets and other rocky bodies. The results are published in the journal Science on 7 June 2013.
Aeris® Communications, the only cellular carrier built exclusively for machines, announced it has partnered with SimplyHome, a leader in the assistive technology industry, to launch the most innovative home care solution for independent living – specifically tailored to serve aging and disabled populations nationwide.
The market for disposable wireless Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) sensors within professional healthcare is in its earliest stages, but key foundations to support adoption are now in place. There is also tremendous potential for adoption. So much so that by 2018, close to 5 million disposable sensors will be shipped even though MBAN sensors will have still barely penetrated the addressable market.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Q100-certified SPDT RF switch from Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. (Peregrine).
A team of astronomers has used the new ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) telescope to pinpoint the locations of over 100 of the most fertile star-forming galaxies in the early Universe. ALMA is so powerful that, in just a few hours, it captured as many observations of these galaxies as have been made by all similar telescopes worldwide over a span of more than a decade.
Medical devices that send small amounts of data wirelessly will be able to run for months or even years on a coin cell battery when they use new Bluetooth Smart™ modules announced today by global technology leader Laird Technologies.
Renesas Electronics and Renesas Mobile Corp. have announced the availability of a new member of the R-Car Series of automotive Systems-on-Chip (SoCs).
Molex Inc. announced its Projected Capacitive Touch Screens, which leverage existing Molex capacitive switch technology to deliver multi-touch functionality that is responsive and intuitive to operate. The touch screens allow Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to meet specific customer needs by providing customized embedded software; multiple screen and glass styles; a variety of treatment finishes and various output interface choices.
