* Hams Step Up In Emergency Situations

Don Tuite, Analog/Power Editor

Hurricane Sandy reminds us that amateur radio operators still can play a
vital role in emergency situations that challenge conventional
communications systems.

* Tablet Tsunami: The iPad mini, Surface, And Others

Louis E. Frenzel, Communications Editor

According to some surveys, more than half of all Internet users in the U.S.
will have a tablet by the end of the year. But what tablets are they
buying? While Apple’s iPad mini and Microsoft’s surface are grabbing the
headlines, they will have plenty of competition before 2012 is over.

* Read App Note: Effective Protection Against Transient Threats in
RS-485-based Systems<http://link.electronicdesign.com/u.d?L4GrzgtrWJSpWWcJdWRQ=81>
RS-485-port interface requirements, transient and surge threats and issues
that can arise from handling and miswiring issues that can occur during
installation and commissioning make effective circuit protection essential.
Bourns' application note gives designers detailed information on how to
implement a variety of robust circuit protection solutions that meet the
transient standards for RS-485 serial device ports. * Download


* 64-Bit ARM And Windows 8 Systems Will Have An Impact

Bill Wong, Embedded/Systems/Software Editor

Two recent announcements will have an even bigger effect on the industry
than the latest iPad iteration: Arm’s Cortex-A50 and Microsoft’s Windows 8.

*Demystifying Package Design*

* Expect 2012’s Packaging Co-Design Improvements To Continue Into 2013

Darvin Edwards, Contributing Technical Expert

Each year sees co-design software vendors vying with each other to produce
the best tools, innovating with the most improvements, gaining customer
mind share, and battling it out with competitors to win more seats and grow
their user base.

*Point Of View*

* Will LDE Stand Between You And Your Next Smart Device?

Tom Beckley, Cadence Design Systems

Compared to 28 nm, 20 nm potentially provides upwards of 20% improved
performance, 30% power savings, and a 50% area reduction that allows
designers to place between 8 billion and 12 billion transistors on a single
system-on-chip. However, some technical challenges must be resolved before
20 nm is widely adopted.

*From Mobile Dev & Design*

* Cooperation Between Network Operators And Developers Will Benefit The M2M

Jurgen Hase, Deutsche Telekom

The latest forecasts hold forth the promise of enormous growth potential
for the M2M market in the years ahead, but cooperation will be required to
make full use of this potential.

*Communications Techview*

* DSP Chips Form Ideal Foundation For White Space Radios

Louis E. Frenzel, Communications Editor

Texas Instruments’ multicore system-on-chip (SoC) processors are one good
way to implement radios for the new white space wireless standards. TI’s
KeyStone line consists of a mix of DSPs and RISC processors that can be
programmed to meet current and forthcoming white space standards.
