Cree and Eta Devices to Demonstrate the World’s Most Efficient Power Amplifier (70%+) for Mobile Base Stations

first_imgCree, Inc. and Eta Devices, Inc. demonstrated the world’s most efficient reported power amplifier for mobile base stations at the 2013 Mobile World Congress, February 24-28, in Barcelona, Spain.  Current-generation mobile-base-station amplifiers employing silicon LDMOS transistors can provide amplifier efficiencies up to 45 percent. By contrast, Eta Devices’ next-generation power amplifiers are able to deliver efficiencies higher than 70 percent under a 4G LTE modulation format and are thus poised to revolutionize current industry efficiency standards. “Eta Devices’ next-generation power amplifiers leverage the performance and reliability advantages of Cree’s GaN HEMT RF transistors to realize game-changing efficiency benefits for the mobile-base-station industry,” said Jim Milligan, business director, Cree RF. “Our transistors have been instrumental in demonstrating Eta Devices’ amplifiers, which perform 50 percent more efficiently than the best incumbent silicon power amplifiers currently available in the 4G LTE market.” The world’s mobile networks consume approximately 120 TWh of electricity per year, and 50–80 percent of these networks’ power is consumed by their power amplifiers and associated components. Implementing Eta Devices’ new power amplifier solution on a global level could save mobile operators 60 TWh of energy per year, which is equivalent to the amount of power produced by more than seven average-sized American nuclear power plants. It could also save up to 50 percent of the $36.5 billion spent to power mobile base stations each year.  “Mobile operators gain dramatic advantages by adopting our new technology,” said Mattias Astrom, CEO of Eta Devices. “In addition to cost savings, our power amplifiers provide operators with a significantly reduced carbon footprint, which contributes to a more sustainable planet. In fact, if implemented on a global basis, our solution would reduce carbon emissions by approximately 36 million tons per year, which is equivalent to eliminating the annual greenhouse gas emissions produced by 7 million cars.”last_img read more

Watch Santa Make His Journey Online

first_imgIt all started by accident in 1955, when the Continental Air Defense Command started receiving calls from children asking for Santa. The Commander-in-Chief thought it was a joke, but decided to play along, telling the callers he’d been tracking Santa with his aerospace equipment. Starting on December 24, you can watch Santa make the preparations for his flight on the NORAD website. More than 60 years later, 1,250 volunteer elves answer the phone calls of 125,000 children every Christmas. The toll-free number is 1-877-Hi-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) or you can email noradtrackssanta@outlook.com Preston Schlachter said the Command’s phone number had accidentally been printed in a Sears ad for Santa, but tracking Santa fits perfectly within NORAD’s duties…center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Children can track Santa live online starting tonight, or phone in to track his progress around the globe. Schlachter: “Making sure the skies are safe is part of our mission here at NORAD, 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year, we’re tracking airplanes, space launches, anything that flies in and around North America. So while the tradition of tracking Santa began purely by accident, NORAD continues to track Santa’s journey throughout the world.”last_img read more

“I’ll choose the English one” – Klopp tells Belgian magazine about…

first_imgDespite having to prepare for one of the biggest games of his managerial career when Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League final, Jürgen Klopp still found the time to sit down for a few hours with Sport/Foot in Belgium to discuss various things, including Brexit. To turn a long story short, the German manager doesn’t think it’ll work, and believes the government should have given the people a second referendum as he thinks a number of Leave voters are ‘wondering what they’ve done’.However, his views on British politics aren’t why we’re writing this article.In the same interview, Klopp was also asked about the strong English contingent currently in his Liverpool squad, with players such as Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Adam Lallana key members of the Reds’ first-team.Embed from Getty ImagesHe said: “They’re here because they’re very good, and not because they’re English or British, but if I had the choice between two players of similar ability, I’ll choose the English one. They create a good atmosphere and relate to the club atmosphere more easily.“But we have formidable players from around the world who love the club. Roberto Firmino adores Liverpool, but the group leaders are the English. Tottenham and Liverpool are the core of the national team. That’s cool.”It’ll be interesting to see what this means for the Champions League finalists going forward in the transfer market, and, as things stand, Klopp has signed two English players since taking over at Liverpool: Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dominic Solanke.He’s also promoted Alexander-Arnold to the first-team, and surprised everyone by agreeing to bringing in Steven Caulker on loan from QPR in 2016.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia我們現正尋找希望使用市面上最新幾乎隱形的助聽器的香港試用者。限50歲以上*聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this treasure is impossible!
