3 Big Challenges For 5G


The general assumption is that we will all be walking around with 5G phones in our pockets someday, but 5G devices may look more like a home router, a car, or maybe even a tablet than a smart phone. There are three main problems that need to be solved here. The big one is coverage, and that gets confusing because it depends on which version of 5G people are talking about. There are at least ... » read more

IoT Wireless Battles Ahead


"The good thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from." – Andrew S. Tanebaum The extended version of that quote adds "furthermore, if you do not like any of them, you can just wait for next year's model." That could not be truer when it comes to IoT and wireless connectivity. Every standards group is rushing to create new versions of existing standards that use less p... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: May 29


Using bandwidth like a fish Researchers from the University of Georgia developed a method to make fuller use of wireless bandwidth, inspired by a cave-dwelling fish's jamming avoidance response. Eigenmannia fish live in complete darkness, sensing their environment and communicating through emitting an electric field. When two fish emit signals at similar frequencies they can interfere with ... » read more
