Toshiba unveils SOI process, targets RF switches in smartphones November 23, 2015Toshiba unveils SOI process, targets RF switches in smartphones Toshiba Electronics Europe has developed a next generation SOI process optimised for RF switch applications, designated TarfSOI™ (Toshiba advanced RF SOI). Read more Qi-certified medium power transmitter reference design November 17, 2015 Qi-certified medium power transmitter reference design ROHM has received certification from WPC (Wireless Power Consortium) for its reference design using the BD57020MWV wireless power transmitter IC. This claims to be the first device in the world certified to be compliant with the latest Qi medium power specification. Read more Mobile image processing in the cloud cuts bandwidth use by over 98 percent November 16, 2015Mobile image processing in the cloud cuts bandwidth use by over 98 percent There is growing demand for image-processing applications on smartphones, but as this is computationally intensive image-processing is a massive drain on the battery. Some mobile applications try to solve this problem by sending image files to a central server, which processes the images and sends them back. But with large images, this introduces significant delays and could incur costs for increased data usage. Read more Dual-core audio SoC designed for mobile devices October 28, 2015Dual-core audio SoC designed for mobile devices ON Semiconductor is offering a high-resolution audio processing SoC, designated LC823450, that has 1656KB SRAM (1.5 MB + 120 kB) and power-efficient hardware acceleration, for designs such as smartphones, wearable accessories and voice recorders. Further, its dual-core architecture with hardware acceleration and available software modules reduces development time, saves board space and boosts battery life. Read more Reserchers develop wireless charger that supports different wireless standards October 14, 2015Reserchers develop wireless charger that supports different wireless standards Electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego, have developed a dual frequency wireless charging platform that could be used to charge multiple devices, such as smartphones, smartwatches, laptops and tablets, at the same time – regardless of which wireless standard, or frequency, each device supports.
