<p>The slowdown in the global economy is having an effect as operators push out deployments. As a result there will be a slight decline in EDGE basestation deployments from 2008 to 2009, resulting in 2008 being the zenith of EDGE deployments. However, 2009 will see a sharp rise in the number of TD-SCDMA basestations shipped.</p>

MUNICH, Germany — Having reached the a high degree of maturity, the RFID technology will continue its growth over the years to come — not despite but because of the crisis, says German industry association Bitkom.

According to Bitkom research, currently 50 percent of the companies that already have introduced the RFID technology plan to expand the deployment. Among the group of RFID non-users, 15 percent plan to implement RFID-based solutions over the next two years.

The Bitkom resembles the German information and communications industry. The group believes that in the current economic crisis, processes and costs within the enterprises are increasing. For this reason, many will tap the cost reduction and process optimization potential inherent to the RFID technology, Bitkom says. Also the increasing pressure to reduce CO2 emissions will urge users to optimize their logistics chains which in turn would call for RFID-based solutions.

The only stumbling block for RFID acceptance within the industry is the unclear situation with regard to data security and privacy protection. In this context, Bitkom requests the EC commission to do away with bureaucratic hurdles.

The folks at Microchip Technology, specialists in microcontroller and analog semiconductors, have announced the PIC18F87J90 family of 8-bit direct LCD-drive microcontrollers (MCUs) with nanoWatt Technology.

The 64- and 80-pin devices extend the memory reach and peripheral set of Microchip's LCD MCU portfolio. They feature 64 to 128 KB Flash and 4 KB RAM, and are the industry's first 8-bit MCUs to include a Real-Time Clock and Calendar (RTCC), and a Charge Time Measurement Unit (CTMU) peripheral for capacitive touch sensing or precise time measurement.

The PIC18F87J90 devices are pin compatible with Microchip's PIC18F85J90 devices, providing an easy migration path across Microchip's entire LCD-drive MCU family and simplified application upgrades.

Many designers want to enhance and add features to their display applications, such as capacitive or inductive touch user interfaces. The PIC18F87J90 products meet this need head-on, with their extended memory range and integrated peripheral set including the CTMU.

Barcelona, Spain, Mobile World Congress — Skyworks Solutions has introduced a family of single and dual-band WCDMA power amplifiers (PA) for universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) applications that integrate the directional coupler, significantly reducing the phone board footprint and bill-of-material costs.

The company's expanded portfolio of front-end solutions now claims five of the world's smallest and highest performance UMTS PAs that support Bands I, II, IV, V and VIII, and two dual band PAs that support the most popular band combinations — bands I/VIII and II/V. These compact solutions provide seamless operation and offer high power added efficiency (PAE) at mid and low powers, significantly increasing talk times.

The company's Intera™ portfolio WCDMA power amplifiers now includes the: SKY77186 for Band I: 1920 to 1980 MHz; SKY77187 for Band II: 1850 to 1910 MHz; SKY77188 for Band V, VI: 824 to 849 MHz; SKY77189 for Band VIII: 880 to 915 MHz; and SKY77191 for Band IV, IX, X: 1710 to 1785 MHz.

The five small and efficient 3 x 3 millimeter (mm) solutions are fully matched, 10-pad surface mount modules. Because of high efficiencies attained throughout the entire power range, the devices deliver unsurpassed talk-time advantages. They also meet stringent spectral linearity requirements of high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) data transmission with high PAE.

The two 4 x 5 mm dual band PA modules are the SKY77195 for Bands I and VIII, covering 1920 to 1980 MHz and 880 to 915 MHz; and the SKY77196 for Bands II and V covering 1850 to 1910 MHz and 824 to 849 MHz. Revolutionary integration techniques pack most of the external passive components into the modules, requiring only two external bypassing capacitors for the two bands compared to 10 to 14 passives typically required with two single band PA modules. This results in unmatched bill of materials count savings as well as up to 40 to 50 percent board area savings, enabling OEMs to devote more functionality to the phone without increasing its size.

As an option, the Qseven Mobility Starter Kit's battery system can be integrated directly with a customer-specific carrier board. For this, congatec can supply an integration kit that includes all connection schemes, the source files for the microcontroller program and complete development documentation.
