Podzespoły MAX2769C - uniwersalny odbiornik GNSS
Maxim Integrated wprowadził do oferty układ scalony uniwersalnego odbiornika do nawigacji satelitarnej. W niewielkiej obudowie układu scalonego zawarto odbiornik standardów GPS (L1 C/A i P), Galileo, BeiDou i GLONASS. Do poprawnej pracy układ wymaga niewielkiej liczby komponentów zewnętrznych Wykonano go w energooszczędnej technologii SiGe BiCMOS.
Układ MAX2769C różni się od podobnych rozwiązań oferowanych przez firmy konkurencyjne. W jego aplikacji wyeliminowano konieczność stosowania zewnętrznych filtrów LNA i SAW. Zawiera on kompletny odbiornik wykonany w technologii germanowo - krzemowej obejmujący bloki podwójnego LNA oraz mikser, filtr częstotliwości lustrzanej, VGA, VCO, syntetyzer częstotliwości, oscylator i przetwornik A/C o dużej rozdzielczości.
Syntetyzer częstotliwości umożliwia programowanie częstotliwości pośredniej z dokładnością do ±40 Hz przy taktowaniu z wykorzystaniem dowolnego zewnętrznego oscylatora kwarcowego lub źródła odniesienia dostępnego w systemie. Układ ma wyjścia dla kanałów I oraz Q.
Dane są dostępne w standardzie CMOS lub różnicowo. Dla zapoznania się z układem firma Maxim Integrated oferuje zestaw ewaluacyjny MAX2769CEVKIT. Umożliwia on pełne sprawdzenie możliwości MAX2769 bez konieczności użycia dodatkowych komponentów zewnętrznych.

Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 845 SoC in early December 2017. And while we’re yet to see a smartphone powered by the latest chipset, details about Qualcomm’s next-gen Snapdragon 855 SoC have surfaced online. If the leak is to be believed, the Snapdragon 855 SoC will be the first ever 7-nanometer chip to be mass produced. Details were shared via a tweet from ‘respected leaker’ Roland Quandt, who is well known for sharing insider scoops on upcoming devices. He tweeted saying, “Qualcomm won’t say it, but their contractors do. Snapdragon 855 is the first 7nm SoC.” If indeed this turns out to be true, the new chip will not only perform faster, but also offer better energy efficiency. więcej na: www.bgr.in

A South Korean news outlet has reported that Samsung is going to break ground this week for a new 7-nanometer foundry plant. It’s going to hold a ceremony with some 100 local residents in Hwaseong on Friday to mark the ground breaking. A Samsung official has said that this new plant is planned to be used largely for foundry production but it could be expanded further to produce other components. The new 7nm foundry will be equipped with the latest Extreme Ultraviolet lithography equipment imported from the Netherlands. We’re previously explained in detail how Samsung’s 7nm process will be superior to rivals like TSMC because it’s going to use EUV technology compared to the traditional optical process used by TSMC. więcej na: www.sammobile.com

The total server DRAM revenue of the top three DRAM suppliers (Samsung, SK Hynix, and Micron) rose by 13.9% QoQ in 4Q17 on the back of rising average selling price, reports DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. The supply of server DRAM has not kept pace with the demand even as suppliers have assigned more capacity to their server product lines. Furthermore, the data center projects in North America have been contributing to the strong demand growth. DRAMeXchange analyst Mark Liu points out that tight supply will persist in the server DRAM market during 1Q18 as server shipments continue to show strength. Quotes of server DRAM modules are also expected to remain high. więcej na: press.trendforce.com

Intel Corp plans to invest $5 billion to expand production at its Kiryat Gat plant in southern Israel, Israeli Economy Minister Eli Cohen said after talks with the U.S. chipmaker. Intel, would start expanding the plant this year and work would be completed in 2020, the minister said in a statement. A spokesman for Intel in Israel declined to comment. The U.S. semiconductor firm has said it planned to upgrade the facility to 10-nanometer technology from 22-nanometer, making chips that are smaller and faster. Intel received a state grant worth 5 percent of the $6 billion it invested in upgrading the plant in 2014, when it was also granted a reduced corporate tax rate of 5 percent for 10 years. Intel is expected to receive a further grant of up to 10 percent of the $5 billion value for the latest expansion. więcej na: www.reuters.com

Qualcomm says a revised acquisition offer from Broadcom makes a bad deal worse. A successful buyout would create a chip behemoth. The haggling continues in what could be the largest-ever tech acquisition. On Wednesday afternoon Qualcomm said in a statement that potential buyer Broadcom had "made an inadequate offer even worse" when it lowered its buyout bid earlier in the day. Broadcom had dropped its offer for Qualcomm to approximately $117 billion from the more than $121 billion it had named about two weeks back. That's because on Tuesday, Qualcomm had upped its own bid for another chipmaker, NXP Semiconductors, taking it to about $44 billion from an earlier price of $39 billion. więcej na: www.cnet.com

Huawei is expected to increase the adoption of smartphone solutions from its chipset subsidiary, HiSilicon Technologies, in 2018 which will add more pressure on Qualcomm and MediaTek, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News report. Huawei shipped 153 million smartphones in 2017, but only 70 million units of its flagship models - or less than 50% of the total shipments - were powered by SoCs from HiSilicon, said the report. Huawei outsourced the production of the remaining 80 million units, mostly the entry-level and mid-range models, to handset ODMs, built using chipset solutions from either Qualcomm or MediaTek, added the report. więcej na: www.digitimes.com
