first_imgCSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) and Maestro Wireless Solutions have announced the availability of the A5100-A – A next-generation GNSS module (based on SiRFstarV™) that combines high performance GPS and GLONASS receiver technology in a small 10 x 15 mm package. The module can concurrently acquire and track the all visible GPS, GLONASS, QZSS, and SBAS satellites. Concurrent GNSS performance enables the A5100-A to choose the best satellites from different constellations and deliver optimal location information. Other benefits are better coverage, enhanced stability and accuracy in difficult environments, such as urban canyons, and stronger resilience to multipath and signal jamming. This ensures consumers maintain a position fix whether they’re in the middle of a busy city or in a remote rural location.The A5100-A achieves unprecedented accuracy with quad-constellation support, up to 30 per cent faster Time-To-First-Fix (TTFF), and up to 20 per cent lower power consumption using CSR’s TricklePowerTM and Push-to-Fix (PtF) modes. The module also accelerates customer time to market and reduces development risks by integrating a number of components including, TCXO, SAW filter, RTC, antenna control mechanism, and flash memory for future-proof upgrades. They also offer a drop-in replacement capability for Maestro’s previous SiRFstar4 generation modules. The castellated edge form factor also enables simpler manufacturing and reduces assembly cost.Maestro Wireless has worked closely with CSR to develop this high performance solution that is available in a small form factor essential for today’s compact devices. They have combined low power consumption with high sensitivity, high jamming immunity and concurrent GNSS operation. The A5100-A is ideal for a wide range of applications including wearable devices, cameras and automotive trackers.last_img read more

first_imgThe EM Simulation Software offered by Remcom now has the capability to import flexible printed circuit board (PCB) designs. The PCB import dialog in the latest update of the XFdtd® 3D Electromagnetic Simulation Software includes the option to wrap a design, such as a flexible circuit, onto a form automatically during the import process. The wrap option conforms the PCB and all of its parts onto the flexible circuit geometry, eliminating the need to bend the model into the desired shape or manually wrap each layer.This unique capability will tremendously streamline geometry setup for all their customers working with flexible circuits. They have eliminated what was a time consuming and error-prone process, replacing it with a simple, one-click import option that produces the simulation-ready design in one smooth step. This technology has the potential to transform the device design workflow for engineers in a wide variety of industries, including mobile devices, exercise monitors, automotive instrument panels, and more.The new release also includes Dielectric Volume Averaging which increases simulation accuracy for simulations with high permittivity materials, such as ceramic chip antennas.last_img read more

first_imgDuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office(WOODRIDGE, Ill.) — An Illinois woman is suspected of moving through the shadows of the dark web to carry out a sinister murder-for-hire plot, even using cryptocurrency to mask her identity.Tina Jones, 31, of Des Plaines, Illinois, allegedly paid a dark web company more than $10,000 via bitcoin in January to have the wife of the man she was having an affair with killed, the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.Police in Woodridge, Illinois, “received a tip that a woman in Woodridge was the subject of an alleged murder-for-hire plot” on April 12, the state’s attorney’s office said.The tip led to Jones’ arrest, after she turned herself in on Tuesday, prosecutors said.Jones has been charged with one count of solicitation of murder for hire.She appeared at a hearing Wednesday, where bond was set at $250,000, and is set to appear in court next on May 15.ABC News has reached out to her attorney for comment.“In recent years, law enforcement has seen a dramatic increase in the use of the dark web as it relates to criminal activity,” Woodridge Police Chief Brian Cunningham said in a statement.The dark web is a collection of internet sites that are hidden from search engines and require special software to access. The sites are usually encrypted, and users can remain more anonymous, including those who may be engaged in criminal activity.He called this case “a great example of how increased training, shared resources and interagency cooperation helped protect one of our residents.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
