The First Glimpse on NXP Signal Amplifier BGU8006

NXP Semiconductors company announces the release of a GPS signal amplifier BGU8006 destined primarily for the integration into mobile devices, tablets, navigators, photo- and video cameras. According to the words of the NXP representatives, their new model is the most bantam signal amplifier available in the market: BGU8006 dimensions equal to 0.65mm x 0.44mm x 0.2mm. Besides, this amplifier is characterized by the extremely low level of noise and the necessity to employ only a couple of external components to enable the device (decoupling capacitor and matching inductor).

The abundance of radio frequency signals serves the major impediment for the pure GPS signal reception. NXP BGU8006 has been developed with this thought in mind and is called to improve the reception of weak GPS signals by means of a dynamic rejection of strong signals released by the cellular and local wireless networks.

BGU8006 is based on QuBIC4Xi SiGe:C BiCMOS technology which is known to involve the …

3D-monitors D2343P-BN and D2743P-BN on matrix IPS from LG

The South Korean manufacturer of digital technology LG enlarged range of branded monitors by two nontrivial models — D2743P-BN and D2343P-BN. Title of the article clearly points out their main advantages — the support of stereoscopic image display quality and availability of the matrix In-Plane Switching with angles of 178 ° / 178 ° horizontal and vertical. LG D2743P-BN has a diagonal of 27 inches, D2343P-BN — 23 inches. The nominal resolution of both displays is 1920x1080 pixels, or, as is now fashionable to say, «Full HD».

New items stand out from their analogues by low power consumption. LG D2743P-BN, on average requires 27 watts of power, and D2343P-BN — 25 watts. Monitors support the «acceleration» of the matrix (Overdrive) to 5 ms, like TN + film screens. Another interesting feature of debutants is the built-in technology Super Resolution, which adds sharpness to blurred images. One click of the 2D-image on the screen can be turned into 3D. In order to view …

Thermalright Readies Le Grand Macho Passive Cooler

Thermalright decided to gladden all devotees of ultra-quiet PC systems by designing an efficient passive cooler – Le Grand Macho. This is a conventional tower cooler, supporting new and outdated CPUs of up to 95 W TDP. Hence, the greenhorn is compatible with Intel LGA 775/115x/1366/2011/2011-3 as well as AMD FM2/FM2+/FM1/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ platforms.

Initially, Thermalright Le Grand Macho is void of any fan; nonetheless, its framework presupposes the installation of one or two high-efficiency fans (120/140 mm), which are able to cope with 300-watt CPUs.

The cooler consists of a nickel-plated base, seven heatpipes and a voluminous aluminum heatsink with 35 fins. The latter come with perforations which counteract air between the plates with low air resistance. The base features a convex-shaped contact surface (that optimizes cooling efficiency) and is perfectly polished. Seven 6-mm heatpipes are solidly integrated into the base, ensuring ideal heat dissipation.
