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.
In 2018 Siemens leapfrogged Huawei to become the number one filer at the EPO, a spot that it has not occupied since 2011. It has invested ...

Probably longer than 32 seconds, and yet 32 seconds is reportedly how long it look for Lenovo to sell out of 220,000 of their highly anticipated Lenovo
Self-driving cars are changing lives by delivering unprecedented personal mobility. In fact, they represent a paradigm shift in the definition of a vehicle. To ensure autonomous vehicles (AVs) deliver a safe, efficient, and enjoyable mode of travel requires complicated new technologies in the cloud
