power consumption decrease
 

"BMI160 is the first state of the art Inertial Measurement Unit (combining Accelerometer and Gyroscope) that runs below 1 mA in full operation mode. This opens up a wide variety of applications that were so far not possible due to power restrictions. At the same time the BMI160 implements step counting in hardware reducing the required power consumption to only 20uA."

 

That's a great result in terms of power consumption, the battery time to charge will be increased accordingly I guess.

Re: success of wearable technologies
I absolutely agree with you. The electronics will play an important role and this will be progressively increasing in time.

power saving
"So what can we do about it? Again the answer is simple: save power. The engineers are challenged more than ever to design extremely low power systems."

 

Agreed, I would add that another strategy is the wireless charging that make possible to recharge batteries in a wireless mode.

success of wearable technologies
"I am absolutely convinced that wearable electronics will change the way people communicate, work and spend their free time. In fact the distinction between private and work life that has been changed by mobile electronics will become further obscured by wearable electronics"

 

I absolutely agree with you. This technology is very promising because it could really improve the life of customers , by monitoring their health and thus making their lives healthier and safer. The integrated chips are perfect to be inserted in wearable applications due to their high level of integration. The wearable electronics may really improve our lives.

At the heart of a transceiver is usually a phase-locked-loop (PLL) synthesizer, which delivers a signal to downstream components such as mixers, filters and power amplifiers.
The steps we will look closely at are the fine leak and gross leak seal tests, external visual, and radiation latch-up tests
Recently, AEye, was demonstrating their LiDAR system at CES in Las Vegas. A man using his new $1,198 Sony camera found that his photographs were damaged after he took pictures of AEye’s LiDAR LASER scanning system
The e-car basic concept is represented by the role of the electronics technology in making the car more comfortable, safe and effectively interacting with the driver. The first characteristic, comfort, is nowadays being dramatically enhanced by the new solution known as Road Noise Control (acronym: RNC) that has been introduced by BOSE during the CES 2019 in Las Vegas
Early microcontrollers had fixed I/O. It may have been possible to connect one of several internal peripherals to the I/O pins, but those pins were restricted and there was never an option of conditioning those outputs
