JEDEC qualification for a RTG4 FPGA in a plastic package
Microchip Technology has now launched a faster, more economical production path with the first Radiation Tolerant (RT) FPGA that offers the low cost of a JEDEC-qualified plastic package plus the proven reliability of RTG4 FPGA technology and decades of spaceflight heritage so they do not need to be screened to full Qualified Manufacturers List (QML) procedures.
MPLAB cloud tools ecosystem for microcontrollers
Microcontroller (MCU) design has been enhanced with the new MPLAB cloud tools ecosystem available today for PIC and AVR devices from Microchip Technology. The free, all-in-one cloud platform combines easy, integrated search and discovery of example code, graphical configuration of projects and code debugging in a collaborative environment.
GaN RF boosted by monolithic microwave integrated circuit
Satellite communication systems use complex modulation schemes to achieve the fast data rates required to deliver video and broadband data. To attain this, they must deliver high RF output power while simultaneously ensuring the signals retain their desired characteristics. The new GMICP2731-10 GaN MMIC power amplifier announced by Microchip Technology helps meet the requirements of GaN RF.
Enabling resilient timing for critical infrastructure
Microchip Technology has announced it has integrated its BlueSky GNSS Firewall with its TimePictra 11 synchronisation monitoring and management platform to protect 5G networks and other critical infrastructure from Global Positioning System (GPS) signal jamming and spoofing while providing single-console visibility across the entire timing architecture.
Microchip simplifies deployment of WiFi 6 access points
Organisations can only deploy today’s WiFi 6 access points (APs) and 5G small cell access nodes where AC power is available or if their switch can deliver both power and data to them as required. Microchip Technology has created a more flexible and cost-effective alternative with the first multiport Power over Ethernet (PoE) power sourcing equipment (PSE) injector, also known as a midspan, that enables any multigigabit switch to support the...
