Consumer demand for affordable smart products drives high-tech companies to continually focus on delivering lower cost, lower power and higher performance through the integration of discrete functions.
Mobile electronics, for example, rely on wireless communication systems to connect with the Internet and cellular base stations. To provide reliable connectivity, engineers need to design dependable communication systems that can support multiple standards, such as Bluetooth, WiFi and LTE.
Whether designing high-definition image sensors for digital cameras or high-performance graphics processors to enable a realistic gaming experience, successful consumer electronics companies focus on driving down cost, integrating functionality, increasing product reliability and speeding time to market.
Wireless communication systems are powering the smart products revolution. Today’s smartphones and networked devices support multiple wireless technologies, such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and LTE. This level of integration requires engineers TO take steps to mitigate EMI/EMC issues as well as thermal issues.
