Continued growth in the Internet of Things requires high-speed communications in environments increasingly crowded with numerous wireless LAN devices. IEEE 802.11ax, the next-generation wireless LAN, will be four times faster than its predecessor, even in crowded environments. However, high speed digital signal processing with low power dissipation requires adoption of a faster CMOS devices, operating with supply voltages lower than 1.0V. Unlike digital circuits, the performance of CMOS analog circuits, such as RF2 CMOS receivers, degrades drastically as voltage falls. New circuit technology that can operate below 1.0V is required to overcome this problem.

TDSC has developed three new technologies for low voltage RF receivers.
The first is a variable linearity RF amplifier (RFAMP). Since signal amplitude is affected by power supply voltage, the linearity of RFAMPs decreases as voltage falls. Conventional RFAMP uses variable resistance to improve the linearity, but internal DC voltage and amplifier performance are also changed by adjusting the resistor value. In order to avoid these problems, Toshiba’s new RFAMP simultaneously employs two input paths: a high linearity path and an internal voltage adjustment path. The RFAMP can adjust linearity without any change in the internal DC voltage.

The second is a low noise frequency converter. A frequency converter switches a received RF signal into a low frequency signal to input into the analog to digital converter. Conventional frequency converters use a DC current source to improve the performance of conversion switches in low voltage designs, but this additional current source degrades performance with low frequency noise. Toshiba’s new frequency converter suppresses low frequency noise by moving the DC current source to the RF side of the conversion switches. Low frequency noise is up-converted to the RF frequency, which is separated from the desired low frequency signal. The result is sufficient switch performance without noise degradation.

The third is a current adder OPAMP. The OPAMP amplifies the converted low frequency signal to level a sufficient high to input the analog signal into the digital converter. Since the maximum output signal level is limited by the supply voltage, OPAMP is forced to reduce its operating voltage range. The new OPAMP suppresses the DC current source from the output stage with a high speed differential current mirror3, and provides larger output voltage even in a low voltage environment. .

Integrating these three technologies into a 5GHz wireless LAN receiver has allowed TDSC to secure the level of performance essential for next-generation wireless LAN.

TDSC will continue to develop the transceiver, and to contribute to the progress of high speed wireless communication.

Triaconta Announces a New Safe Way to Invest in Cryptocurrencies21.9.2017 16:18Pressemelding

Triaconta wants to minimize the risks of investing in cryptocurrencies with Combicoin to make the cryptocurrency market accessible for a larger audience. CombiCoin is 100% asset backed by the top 30 cryptocurrencies with the highest market cap. Because of this the CombiCoin will not suddenly plunge and investors will have less risks when there are major fluctuations. There are over 1000 cryptocurrencies on the market and together they represent a value of 130 billion USD. However, all these coins are very volatile. For example, the value of bitcoin grew from 1000 to 4000 USD within six months. The value of Ethereum, the second largest cryptocurrency, rose from 150 to 400 USD within 6 months but plunged to 150 USD 4 weeks later. In the first six months of 2017 the top 30 of cryptocurrencies grew with 1200 percent. The value of CombiCoin is determined for 3.3
