Wireless service providers need to expand capacity and coverage, and are deploying heterogeneous networks of small, low-power RAN nodes to do it. We've developed an e-book that describes system requirements, architectures, and other considerations for these deployments.
Today, electronics designers face a common set of goals: achieving higher throughput, higher resolution, more efficient systems and reduced time to market. Designing an isolated power supply is often something that takes specialized skills and experience. Getting it right takes time.
Solid state relays (SSRs) have grown in popularity recenlty as alternatives to electromagnetic relays (EMRs), but there's a third option as well: custom SSRs. Senior product manager Kevin Kilbane discusses the benefits and limitations of each.
Power designers are being pushed to balance energy efficiency and smaller, more reliable power delivery systems. Fully integrated CMOS-based isolated gate drivers can help by offering both in smaller, more efficient packages.
Chances are, if you're watching a movie or a TV show or even a live sporting event, it's probably being streamed to you via the Internet. Check out how our timing and synchcronization products are coordinating all of that content to keep networks running smoothly.
We're excited to introduce a new collaboration with embedded expert and author, James A. Langbridge. James will be walking through various Bluetooth projects and getting started tips, as well as answering some of the most common questions he has come across during is extensive career.
We've annonced a new family of isolated gate drivers focused on power supplies for servers, computers, and base stations, as well as solar power inverters and microinverters, class D amplifiers, motor controllers, and chargers for electric vehicle/hybrid-electric vehicles (EV/HEV).
Consumer portable devices like digital cameras have adopted PCI Express (PCIe) to rapidly move data between processors and memory and to download high resolution video and images to external memory cards.
Jitter--it's more than a caffeine hangover, it's the bane of your existence when you're developing with high-frequency reference clocks. Find out more about this pesky little beast and how you can control it.
Skyrocketing network bandwidth demands – driven by consumer mobile devices and streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and others – are pushing Internet Infrastructure suppliers to develop equipment supporting dramatically higher data rates and system port densities. Your equipment must be flexible to carry a wide range of voice, data and video traffic to connect users to their content.
Join David Lynch on his journey to write a book on entry-level embedded development. This blog series will bring you up to speed on Silicon Labs´ EFM32 Gecko microcontroller family and quickly give you the “big picture” of turning computer code into electronics gadgets.
One of the ways we differentiate ourselves is through our superior customer support, and we take pride in getting the right answers to our customers quickly. Get to know one of our most valuable resources.
Today we introduced the industry's smallest Bluetooth low energy system-in-package (SiP) module, measuring in at just 6.5 mm x 6.5 mm with a built-in chip antenna. The next small thing is here, with all-in-one Bluetooth connectivity.
You'll be hearing a lot about Thunderboard Sense over the coming months, but you can get your hands on the newest IoT development kit today. Check it out, and get stated on your battery-powered IoT applications.
Silicon Labs turns 20 this year, and over the course of 2016 we’ll be taking a look back at how we got here, where we’re going, and meet some of the employees, partners, and customers that have helped shape us over the last two decades. Today we take a closer look at our office in Singapore and explore some of the city’s culture and history.
