Envelope Tracking Makes CMOS PAs Possible in 4G Smartphones

December 11, 2014 -- In recent years, CMOS power amplifiers (PAs) have made significant inroads into the cost-sensitive GSM GPRS and 3G markets. While this has taken some market share away from traditional GaAs PAs, the fact remains that when it comes to high-end 3G and LTE applications, CMOS PAs continue to be limited in their performance and GaAs continues to dominate in these applications. In particular, the “soggy” compression characteristic of CMOS results in poor linearity, which is a key requirement for 4G waveforms with high peak-to-average power ratios (PAPR). ... read more

FPGA-based FSK/PSK Modulation

December 11, 2014 -- Binary FSK(Frequency Shift Keying) and PSK(Phase Shift keying) are extensively used in telecommunication for digital data transmission. FSK/PSK modulator circuits usually employ analogue components such as VCO (voltage control oscillator), RF Mixer, and Level-shifter, with limited frequency range and whose performance drifts with variation in environmental temperature and duty cycle. An FPGA-based all-digital implementation ensures constant optimum performance and reconfigurability. ... read more

Sensor Fusion Enhances Device Performance

December 10, 2014 -- With the ongoing revolution in powerful and intelligent device development such as smart phones, new applications are being enabled at a rapid pace and system development often fails to keep up with new and changing requirements. Today, new applications such as indoor navigation and augmented reality, which make use of motion or positional data, require users to accept a somewhat crude sensor fusion implementations originally developed for simple gaming applications. Now, however, end users easily notice the considerable shortcomings and inaccuracies of the implementations. ... read more

Understanding Automotive Reliability and ISO 26262 for Safety Critical Systems

November 24, 2014 -- Automotive electronics play a critical role in today's automotive safety systems. While standards like ISO 26262 provide a framework for robust and reliable design and verification practices, it can be challenging to comply with these standards throughout the entire design process. A new class of IC reliability verification tool is helping designers ensure their designs satisfy these demanding safety and performance standards.
