first_imgBluetooth technology and products expert, Tempow, has partnered with CEVA, to develop next-generation True Wireless Stereo (TWS) Bluetooth ear-buds for the mass market. The resulting joint IP solution delivers synchronized left/right audio over standard Bluetooth dual mode connected links with short latency and without the power consumption penalty associated with many of today’s TWS implementations.Audio streaming via A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) is a proven strength of Bluetooth, but with the advent of wireless ear-buds, new challenges have arisen. With traditional Bluetooth stereo headphones, the headphones are seen as a single end-point. With ear-buds, however, the left/right sink points are now physically separated and the Bluetooth A2DP paradigm is challenged to stream audio with the necessary degree of synchronization. To date, a number of different solutions have appeared to address this, such as audio-forwarding and eavesdropping, but these solutions often result in significant battery drain on the already power-restricted ear-buds.Tempow and CEVA are leading the charge on a new, optimized approach which eliminates the need for the inter-ear-bud secondary wireless link and which works with any Bluetooth AD2P enabled phone on the market. Within the phone, a straight forward software update is needed to install the Tempow Audio Profile (TAP). Within the ear-buds, CEVA and Tempow have collaborated to implement a joint solution, which delivers the essential high quality audio synchronization over standard Classic Bluetooth BR/EDR links. This solution was demonstrated to a wide audience, with much praise, at the recent CEVA Technology Symposiums in Asia.Both companies will host a joint webinar titled: “Turnkey Solution for Bluetooth True Wireless Stereo Ear-buds and Speakers” on December 5th discussing their recent collaboration and advancements of the technology.last_img read more

first_imgLeading electromagnetic simulation and wireless propagation software provider, Remcom, has announced new superposition simulation and array optimization capabilities in its latest release update of XFdtd 3D EM Simulation Software. The new added benefits further expand the software’s capabilities for high-frequency 5G device design and beam steering analysis.Antenna arrays are essential for maximizing the performance of complex 5G enabled devices, facilitating the use of beam steering, spatial diversity, and other techniques to improve throughput. Determining the numerous beam states for a new design can be tedious due to the hundreds or thousands of port phase combinations. XFdtd enables users to leverage the electromagnetic principle of superposition to reveal these combinations with a single simulation. By combining steady-state results from the simulation, XFdtd efficiently determines the port phases that maximize the far zone coverage in each direction.According to Sam Seidel, XFdtd Project Manager, Remcom continues to develop XFdtd to keep pace with the growing complexity of 5G design requirements and the advanced technologies that customers are utilizing to meet them. Superposition and array optimization enable highly sophisticated array analysis and beam steering while removing slowdowns that impede the design workflow.XFdtd users without an active Remcom Professional Support contract can upgrade to the latest version by contacting sales.last_img read more

first_imgRUGBY LEAGUE COCA-COLA Ipatas Cup (CCIC) products Isaac Mel and Ben Wemin have made a huge impression in their debut season with the Ngatangiia/Matavera Sea Eagles in the Cook Islands Rugby League Federation. The impact was so huge that the Sea Eagles, who last made the grand final in 2006 and lost, have returned after 12 seasons. In the last two matches they knocked off title holder Titikaveka Bulldogs and then nailed Avatiu Nikao Eels 26-18 in the major semi-final on the weekend. Wemin played a hand in the win with the try of the day from a 60m break to the tryline. The Sea Eagles will now play the Tupapa Panthers in the grand final on Saturday. A happy Enga Mioks coach Timothy Lepa was yesterday full of praise of the duo, saying their eye-catching performance has further strengthened their sister club relationship between the Mioks and the Rarotonga-based club. Lepa said: “Both are products of the Coca-Cola Ipatas Cup and I am proud to say that this further indicates the importance of the nationwide offseason competition. “It’s big news for the Sea Eagles club as they are not known to be a strong club or a Grand Final contender at all,” Lepa said. “We hope both do well on Saturday and look forward to their return on Monday to bolster the Mioks camp. “Both are in good form so they will fit into the Mioks plans for the second-half of the Digicel Cup.” Lepa said the Mioks will play the last game of the first round this Sunday against the Chimbu Warriors in Wabag and then meet the Goroka Lahanis in Wabag again for the start of the second-round. “We should have both Isaac (Mel) and Ben (Wemin) for the Lahanis clash.” Lepa said the sister club relationship will see four players from the Sea Eagles join the Mioks pre-season training camp for the 2019 season.last_img read more
