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 …

Plextor Debuts with M.2 6G Solid-State Drive

Plextor, an award-winning Japanese SSD designer, launches its another M.2 solution, codenamed 6G. This drive features 42 mm length only, fulfilling space requirements of small-sized but high-performance cases. The new-comer is available in two capacity variations: 64 GB (PX-64M6G-2242) and 128 GB (PX-128M6G-2242). Their retail price makes up $50 and $90 respectively.

Both Plextor M.2 6G solid-state drives come with PCI Express 2.0 interface. They are based on Marvell 88SS9188 controller and 19 nm MLC NAND flash-memory with Toggle interface (by Toshiba). The models support TRIM and NCQ technologies as well as DEVSLP power-efficient mode that reduces power consumption to 0.2 mW.

As far as speed characteristics are concerned, M.2 6G accelerate up to 520 Mb/sec on sequential Read operations; sequential Write index depends on the model: 160 Mb/sec for 64 GB model and 210 Mb/sec for 128 GB one. At the same time, random Read/Write operational index (4K blocks) makes up …

PSU Enhance EPS-1780GA4 800W Review

EPS-1700 series consists of six PSU models of 600W-1200W power efficiency. All units, without exception, can boast the correspondence to 80Plus Gold standard and the usage of high-quality Japanese capacitors in their framework. The operating temperature range varies from 0 to 40 degrees, depending upon conditions. PSU model EPS-1780GA4 800W cannot boast unique design, but is totally ready to cope with all set tasks due to the implemented power, reliability and potential.

General Peculiarities

EPS-1780GA4 800W is delivered in a large cardbox realized in black and goldish colors. The latter is predominant on a package to comply with the demands of 80Plus Gold products. The model is characterized by a quite typical design with a black casing, a black fan, and a black ventilation grid. There are no arty-crafty elements or eye-catching add-ons, but it will definitely catch the fancy of minimalists and practical customers. All essential PSU parameters are indicated on a delivery …
