Next Gen Smartphones and Consumer Products to Boost Global RF Duplexer Market

first_imgGlobal technology research and advisory company, Technavio, expects the global RF duplexer market to grow at a CAGR of more than 11% during the period 2017-2021. The company has released a market report (Global Radio Frequency Duplexer Market 2017-2021) which presents a detailed analysis of the global radio frequency duplexer market by application, including cell phones, portable PCs, STBs, tablets, modems/dongles and smart TVs. The report also determines the geographic breakdown of the market in terms of detailed analysis and impact, which includes key geographies such as APAC, the Americas, and EMEA.Proliferation of Smartphones and TabletsAccording to the report, there has been a massive growth in the proliferation of smartphones and tablets. The advances in wireless technology have resulted in the development of new RF features, which are necessary for smartphones and tablets. The growth of smartphones and tablets is expected to encourage RF device manufacturers to create high-performance RF components that can meet the requirements of the mobile device manufacturers. The RF duplexers in smartphones can handle multiple bandwidths and various frequency bands, and they also support carrier aggregation. This will increase the adoption of them in the smartphones segment during the forecast period.Emergence of Advanced Consumer ProductsThe consumer electronics market has witnessed massive transformations in the last five years. Feature phones were replaced with smartphones. PCs were replaced with laptops, and now laptops are being replaced by tablets. Also, cathode ray tubes (CRT) TVs are being replaced by LED TVs and Smart TVs. Now manufacturers and application developers are looking to interconnect all these household devices and create a single unit called a smart home, which is controlled by the applications installed on smartphones.According to a lead analyst at Technavio for embedded systems research, various RF components are embedded into smart TVs, smartphones, laptops, and STBs. The adoption of RF components, including RF duplexers, will increase during the forecast period. With the emergence of the loT, RF components have become a key part of consumer electronics.Alternate Printing Solutions in EnterpriseAn increase in the frequency bands, carrier aggregation, modulation schemes, and power amplifier modes to support the growing mobile data traffic is increasing the RF front-end complexity. With the increase in the RF front-end complexity, designers and engineers are continuously coming up with innovative methods and techniques to create complex multi-chip modules that provide incremental improvements. However, the existing RF front-end technology has only a limited number of OEMs with the ability to develop single reference designs that will work in all regions. Thus, the increasing RF complexity is one of the major challenges faced by the vendors in the global RF duplexer market.Click here to request a sample report.last_img read more

(STI) rescued a total of 191 Atlantic green sea turtles that had been cold-stunned when the water temperature in the Laguna Madre plummeted due to the fast-moving weather system.“The last few days we had weather in the 30s and 40s. When that happens there’s always the potential that we’re going to have a cold stun event,” said STI educator Khrystyne Jamerson Wednesday. “These sea turtles are reptiles; they’re cold-blooded animals, so their body temperature is going to match the temperature of their environment,” she said.For some species of sea turtles, cold weather drives them farther out into the open ocean, where the temperatures remain warmer. For Atlantic greens, however, which mainly stay in the shallow waters of the bay in order to feed on sea grasses, there’s nowhere to go. The entire body of water becomes chilled, putting the animals into a catatonic state. “They go into shock, they start floating at the surface. They become really lethargic and they get washed up on the beach,” Jamerson said.Want the whole story?

Álvaro Morata unconvincing on debut

first_imgMADRID (AP): Atlético Madrid lost their first Spanish league match since September on the day of Álvaro Morata’s much-anticipated debut. The newly signed striker had a lacklustér debut as Atlético lost 1-0 at Real Betis on Sunday to miss their chance to move closer to league leaders Barcelona. Atlético could have gone within three points of Barcelona – after the Catalan club was held by Valencia to a 2-2 draw at Camp Nou Stadium on Saturday – but conceded a second-half penalty kick and lost for the first time in 19 league matches. They now trail Barcelona by six points after 22 matches. “We had the chance to cut into their lead but couldn’t do it,” Atlético defender Juanfran Torres said. “But we are not giving up.” Diego Simeone’s team had been unbeaten in the league since a 2-0 loss at Celta Vigo in the third round of games. The setback at Benito Villamarin Stadium was only the third loss for Atlético in 33 matches in all competitions this season. Morata, Atlético’s biggest signing in the winter transfer window, played from the start but was not much of a factor. The former Real Madrid striker, who arrived last week on an 18-month loan from Chelsea, had opportunities but seemed out of sync with his new teammates. WORKED WELL “He’s only been here for a few days,” Simeone said. “He worked well, with a lot of enthusiasm. Hopefully, he will start scoring soon. We are going to need his goals.” Simeone and Morata demanded a penalty when the striker was brought down inside the area early in the second half. A few moments later, midfielder Sergio Canales converted the 65th-minute winner from the penalty spot after Atlético defender Filipe Luis was called for a handball inside the area. The victory was Betis’ first against Atlético since Simeone took over the Madrid club late in 2011 and moved the Sevilla side to sixth in the league. “We played a very intelligent match,” Betis coach Quique Setién said.last_img read more
