Posted: April 9, 2019 Contributing Author: Daniel Yang & Stacy Wegner It’s here. It’s in our labs... Two major 5G events happened last week: Verizon launched their 5G network in Chicago, and on the other side of the globe, Samsung launched the world’s first 5G mobile handset in Korea - the Samsung
Posted: April 09, 2019 The mobile RF front-end architectures of 3G and early 4G smartphones were relatively simple and could be built from discrete components. The mobile radio frequency (RF) front-end today has become much more complex to support the evolving LTE standard. Smartphones need to
Originally Presented: April 9, 2019 / 2:00pm to 3:00pm ET Hosted By: Michel Roy Low-density fan-out package technology has been around for more than a decade. Due to limitations in RDL counts and capabilities in line space / line width, this technology has traditionally been used in low-to-medium
(Semiconductor Engineering) The big challenge is to characterize the inner portions of a 3D NAND device, which consists of complex materials, multiple layers and tiny channel holes. Then, as you add more layers, the metrology challenges increase “due to a higher number of 3D gate stacks and multi
Advances in AVs are having a ripple effect in multiple technology fields, from radar and LiDAR to signal processing. However, the rapid innovation pace is also creating challenges for automakers.
