Will 5G Deployment Lag in the U.S.?


China and other countries are creating “a 5G tsunami” that the U.S. will not be able to match unless it steps up its national investments in 5G cellular communications, Deloitte Consulting warns in a new report. The firm notes that China has outspent the U.S. on wireless communications infrastructure by $57 billion since 2015, constructing 350,000 new sites, compared with less than 2... » read more

5G Gets Closer To Commercialization


Cellular carriers would like to have their new 5G networks up by the end of 2018 or early 2019. One problem: they need a set of standards to create the new technology. In June, tech representatives met and made significant first step for technology companies to start building out the necessary 5G chips and software. In La Jolla, California, the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) met f... » read more

New Roadmap For Electronics


Tech Talk: Melissa Grupen-Shemansky, CTO for SEMI’s FlexTech Group and Advanced Packaging program, looks at what’s changing now that Moore’s Law is slowing, and how packaging is changing as the traditional physical boundaries of electronics begin breaking down. https://youtu.be/UpH1m8Oru90 » 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

5G Wireless Infrastructure Pushes High-Speed SerDes Protocols


5G is the 5th generation wireless system standard that, through high speeds and increased accessibility, promises to change the way we stream, communicate, work, and travel. Boasting speed capabilities of 20Gbps and network densities of 1 million connected devices per square kilometer, 5G is the required technology for the implementation of highly anticipated technologies like autonomous vehicl... » read more

Connecting Cars Reliably


Imagine motoring along through busy, urban traffic in your new connected car that is learning, getting smarter, safer and more reliable as it is driving. Such a car is constantly gathering and generating all kinds of data that is intermittently and opportunistically being uploaded to the cloud. As more cars on the road feature advanced wireless connectivity, this exciting future will become com... » read more

Avoiding Down Times: Monitoring, Diagnostics And Troubleshooting Of Industrial Wireless Systems


The ever-growing proliferation of wireless devices and technologies used for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, such as patient monitoring, military surveillance, and industrial automation and control, has created an increasing need for methods and tools for connectivity prediction, information flow monitoring, and failure analysis to increase the dependability of the wireless network.

The 5G Design Dilemma


Nothing says low power and high performance like an emerging wireless standard that promises to increase link bandwidth, latency, and overall capacity by orders of magnitude while also reducing power. That emerging standard, of course, is 5G. With the number of devices that are projected to use 5G, it’s no surprise that 5G is a strategic initiative for many companies. This explains why des... » read more
