Smallest Thinnest Power Modules For Data Center Optical Modules


Data transmission rates in optical communication field are on a constant rise. This paper describes the ever-increasing demand for highly integrated, small form factor, low profile yet thermally superior and electrically efficient power supply solution to support these high data rates and large amount of data transfer. It then follows to highlight Renesas’s best in class mini power mo... » read more

Renesas / Cyberon Speech Recognition


Traditional voice or speech recognition technology is based on a trained model with specific words or phrases. Natural language processing is word-order independent. This requires large computing power to run the real time data through a neural network. The Cyberon approach is different, allowing the algorithms to run on a small, general purpose MCU.

Smart Devices Enabled To Efficiently Communicate, Sense, Hear, Act And Interact With User


The latest advancements in embedded systems and communication and sensing technology have led to the increasing development of smart applications. This has been a continuously evolving process, involving either the creation of completely new solutions or the rapid transformation of existing ones into corresponding highly smart environments. The main driving forces of the smart transformation ha... » read more

Overview Of TVOC And Indoor Air Quality


The aim of this white paper is to cover the basics of total volatile organic compounds (TVOC) and indoor air quality (IAQ). Volatile organic compounds are the main source for poor indoor air quality, which can affect a person’s daily life. Recommendations from various institutions and agencies regarding TVOC levels that are deemed hazardous to human health are given in the “Hazardous Condit... » read more

AI As A Service For Signal Processing


Reality Analytics provides AI tools, optimized for solving problems related to sensors and signals. Working with acceleration, vibration, sound, electrical, RF, and proprietary signal sets, Reality Analytics tools identify signatures of real-world events or conditions in sensor and signal data, and create software that can then spot those signals in the wild, notifying applications and devices ... » read more

64-Bit RISC-V Microprocessor Delivers New Options For IoT Edge Development


Global and rapidly expanding IoT edge devices are becoming increasingly important for connecting various sensors to the cloud via networks. IoT edge devices are progressively integrating 64-bit microprocessors capable of running Linux and similar high-performance operating systems. Moreover, recent import and export regulation changes have produced a need for choices in CPU architecture for mic... » read more

Timing Accuracy For eCPRI Fronthaul And Open RAN


Open RAN is an eCPRI-based open fronthaul interface between the radio unit (RU) and distributed unit (DU) [1]. This white paper discusses timing accuracy for eCPRI fronthaul transport networks. The eCPRI interface is supported by packet switched fronthaul transport networks. When the fronthaul network is used to synchronize an eCPRI node, it must provide timing at the user network interface acc... » read more

Understanding Linear Regulators and their Key Performance Parameters


Low-dropout regulators, commonly known as LDOs, are used extensively in a wide variety of electronic applications across many different industries. An LDO is generally perceived as a simple and inexpensive way to regulate and control an output voltage that is delivered from a higher input voltage supply. However, cost and simplicity are not the only reason for their widespread use. In fact, tod... » read more

Isolation Device Solution For Intelligent Power Module (IPM) Drive To Realize High-Accuracy Industrial Equipment In High Noise Environment


As efforts to protect the environment have advanced, the use of inverters in industrial applications and green energy systems have continued to grow rapidly as a way to achieve low-power motor control and reduce power conversion loss. In recent years, this demand has been increasing more and more in relation to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Further improvement in accuracy and downsizing... » read more

Zone-ECU Virtualization Solution Platform


The high complexity of future vehicle systems will need to move away from today’s distributed automotive E/E architecture towards a more centralized E/E structure based on less but much more powerful ECUs, instead of many individual control entities. A Zone-oriented architecture moves the integration of numerous functions and services into one ECU. The resulting network concept must deal w... » read more
