Transceivers

Future-Ready Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Capabilities in Certified Module Solutions from Laird

Laird’s new 60 Series of certified 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi + Bluetooth v4.2 modules provide unmatched connectivity and performance in challenging wireless environments

A new series of advanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules that are designed to help developers and inventors connect billions of objects to the Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT), especially in challenging RF environments like hospitals and large industrial facilities, was announced today by global wireless technology leader Laird (LRD: London) during Electronica 2016 in Munich, Germany.

Infineon speeds up in-vehicle communication and makes it secure and reliable with CAN FD transceivers

Around 60 electronic control units communicate with each other in vehicles today via the Controller Area Network (CAN). The need for in-vehicle communication is growing as the amount of networking increases and more comfort and automation are implemented. The new protocol variant CAN FD (CAN Flexible Data-rate) allows a higher data bandwidth and transmission speed. This saves time in programming, in tests and diagnostic routines as well as for software updates over the air (SOTA).

With its TLE925x CAN FD transceivers, Infineon Technologies makes data exchange up to 30 times faster than today. The TLE925x reaches transmission speeds of up to 5 Mbit/s. Compared to the classical CAN transceivers with a maximum of 8 byte, the CAN FD transceivers such as TLE925x can send a payload of up to 64 byte per message. This opens up the possibility to check the transmitted data for consistency in the transmitting control unit and to sign it with a 21-bit checksum instead of the 17-bit possible so far. Longer checksums ensure reliable communication between the control units. This makes it possible to better secure data transmission in the vehicle without the application software becoming more complex in the electronic control unit.

Mesh Networking Module from Silicon Labs Simplifies Thread and ZigBee Connectivity

Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB) has introduced a new family of Wireless Gecko modules focused on mesh networking applications with support for best-in-class ZigBee® and Thread software. Silicon Labs’ new MGM111 module is the first in this comprehensive family of multiprotocol modules based on the Mighty Gecko system-on-chip (SoC) device. The MGM111 module is supported by Silicon Labs’ reliable, secure and flexible mesh protocol stacks and the industry’s most advanced wireless software development tools. The module’s combination of onboard stacks, antenna options and RF regulatory certifications helps developers reduce cost, complexity and time to market for an array of mesh networking applications including home and building automation, connected lighting, smart metering, security systems and other IoT platforms.

Murata launches ultra compact low cost standalone LoRa module

Murata today announced the launch of a compact low-cost low power wide area network (LPWAN) wireless module that supports the LoRaWAN long range wireless protocol. This standalone compact module measures just 12.5 x 11.6 x 1.76 mm, is constructed in a metal shielded package and comprises a Semtech SX1276 ultra long range spread spectrum wireless transceiver and an STMicro STM32L0 series ARM Cortex M0+ 32 bit microcontroller (MCU). An integrated TCXO that has robust low drift thermal characteristics provides an accurate clock source for the RF transceiver.
