<p>Maybe there are brilliant ideas I haven’t heard before. But come on, guys. Is this the best you can do to talk consumers into IoT nirvana? These scenarios are straight out of the old home-automation catalogue. They’ve been shopped around and recycled for years.</p>

Building the Early Supply Chain Path to 5G Although it may be months or even years before 5G takes its place in the market, it’s not too early to start to get the supply chain prepared. Building the right supplier relationships and talent pool is critical.

5G buildout will be more involved than we’ve been led to believe The spectrum that each cellular network operator has license to will have ramifications for the 5G networks they will have to build. Among the most significant of those ramifications is cell spacing.

Conventional mains rectifier bridges are widely used in the AC to DC conversion section of many (switch-mode) power supply units. The diode bridge – also known as Graetz bridge – normally operates at a voltage between 90 and 240 V(RMS), while the AC frequency is 50 or 60 Hz. Commonly standard (low speed) silicon bipolar diodes are used in a traditional rectifier bridge.

Figure 2 shows the operating principle of the diode bridge: the current through the load (R) always flows in the same direction, no matter what the polarity of the AC voltage is. The arrows in the figure 2 pictures indicate the current flow direction.

In short, OEMs are under the gun. They must keep updating their software as new features are demanded by organizations like Euro-NCAP. Mak noted, Euro-NCAP, for example, will implement AEB Crossing, Junction & Head-On, and AEB Reversing in 2020. It will also implement Evasive Steering or Autonomous Emergency Steering in 2020. J-NCAP has already implemented Pedal Misapplication in 2018 and will review performance requirements in 2020.”

Who competes with HELLA Algaia? Besides HELLA Aglaia, who else competes in the computer-vision software-stack space? Mak said that there are many.

Mobileye, for example, will be the main competitor,” he said. But there is a wide range of software developers in ADAS. Mak noted that they include the OEMs themselves, their Tier 0.5 consultants such as FEV, IAV, tier ones, and their in-house subsidiaries (e.g., Continental + Elektrobit, Visteon + AllGo, and, of course, Aglaia is part of HELLA), plus some other specialist developers.

Japanese semiconductor manufacturer ABLIC  Inc. (formerly Seiko Instruments) will make their first appearance at ELECTRONICA  2018 at Hall C6 Booth 147, debuting their new company name and looking to reposition themselves with a look to Western markets. While the company can look back on a rich history in the industry under their former name, they are looking to re-establish themselves boasting familiar Japanese tropes such as high-quality product while being sensitive to the needs of a rapidly changing market.


You can never have too much battery life in portable devices. That’s a given, but what about the wired networks? They also use too much power, and let’s face it, power is money. Because so much of the data we use travels through Ethernet-based networks, we have the IEEE 802.3az standard for Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE).
