DP1203 Series radio-only transceiver from Linx allows effective customization to optimize RF

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.

ALMA discovers comet factory

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.

Disposable wireless heathcare sensor market shows signs of life

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.
