Mimosa A6 platform is designed for Wi-Fi 6E fixed wireless connection points

Published

on

Mimosa by Airspan, a subsidiary of Airspan Networks Holdings, has unveiled the A6 access point platform supporting Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax). According to the manufacturer, this is the first point-to-multipoint (PTMP) solution for fixed wireless connections (FWA) to provide gigabit speeds. It improves network performance, scalability, and reliability, delivering up to 7 Gbps throughput for external broadband networks and 5G backhaul infrastructure. At the same time, the Airspan C6x Wi-Fi 6E RF module is introduced, allowing wireless Internet service providers (WISP) and FWA networks to receive “fiber optic speed”.

In addition to the high speed, comparable to the speed of fiber-optic connection, the new products have other advantages. In particular, the A6 can support more than 200 subscribers, which is four times the capabilities of modern solutions of this kind. So far, this is the first and only FWA platform with SFP + and dual fiber port switching. It is also so far the first and only FWA platform built exclusively for 160 MHz channels in the extended 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands recently approved by the FCC. More precisely, it operates in the 5.150 to 6.425 GHz range. The C6x module is capable of supporting subscriber speeds up to 1.75 Gbps.

These new products are currently being tested by Mimosa customers.

The multimedia system of the Lexus NX car uses the single-chip systems Renesas R-Car H3 and R-Car M3

Published

on

Renesas Electronics has announced that its R-Car H3 and R-Car M3 SoCs have been selected by Toyota Motor for the next generation of car multimedia systems. Toyota’s next-generation multimedia system will debut for the first time in the Lexus NX, scheduled for release in November 2021. It is planned that these systems will be installed in other cars of Lexus and Toyota brands.

Toyota’s next-generation infotainment system includes a high-definition widescreen widescreen touchscreen display up to 14 inches. The display area can be flexibly divided into sections and zoomed in and out, taking advantage of a combination of advanced functionality and convenience. The system has voice recognition features such as quick start in response to voice commands, car sound system, and over-the-air (OTA) software updates.

Renesas’ R-Car single-chip systems provide the ability to import map information, images and video from user devices, including smartphones, and output to a large display. They are also responsible for functions such as touchscreen display control, voice recognition via microphone input, and audio output to multiple speakers. In addition, the built-in security features of the SoC R-Car are entrusted with secure OTA software updates.

Since the functions of the multimedia system differ depending on the car model, Toyota uses the R-Car H3 in systems for the more expensive models with the maximum equipment, and the SoC R-Car M3 can be found in other car models.

TSMC presented the N4P process technology

Published

on

TSMC introduced the N4P process, a performance-optimized enhancement to the 5nm technology platform. New process technology added to N5, N4, N3. According to the manufacturer, the choice between them gives customers the opportunity to choose the most suitable combination of power consumption, performance, die area and product cost.

The new process technology is the third major improvement on TSMC’s 5nm platform. The company estimates that N4P delivers an 11% increase in productivity over the original N5 technology and 6% over N4. Compared to N5, N4P will also provide 22% more energy efficiency and 6% more transistor density. In addition, N4P reduces process complexity and shorter insert cycle times by reducing the number of masks.

N4P projects are said to be well supported by TSMC’s comprehensive design ecosystem. The first products based on N4P technology are expected to go into production by the second half of 2022.

Xturismo Flying Motorcycle Orders Started in Japan

Published

on

The Japanese company ALI Technologies has presented the “flying motorcycle” Xturismo, capable of speeds up to 100 km / h and stay in the air for up to 40 minutes. During the demonstration, the device rose several meters above the ground and flew for about one and a half minutes. The weight of the device, designed to carry one person, is 300 kg.

ALI Technologies, backed by Kyocera and Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Venture Capital, has already started accepting orders and plans to begin shipping the first batch of 200 pieces in the first half of next year. The Xturismo is priced at approximately $ 682,000.

Interestingly, in the Xturismo, the main propulsion system does not use electric motors, but an internal combustion engine that drives the two main propellers. Auxiliary propellers help maintain balance and perform maneuvers. To do this, the “motorcycle” uses technology tested by ALI in drones.

One of the applications of the apparatus is called rescue operations on the water. True, it is not clear how exactly the assistance is supposed to be provided – neither the carrying capacity, nor the cruising range, nor the lack of the possibility of landing on water contribute to such an application, not to mention the fact that for aircraft operated over water, it is mandatory to reserve engines with the ability to continue flight if one of them fails.
