ViewSonic Outs XG03 Gaming Monitors

ViewSonic has enlarged its lineup of gaming products with another series of monitors – the XG03. The lineup currently consists of two models: XG2703 & XG2703-GS. The key differentiation between them lies in the support for AMD FreeSync (the first model) and Nvidia G-Sync (the second model). Consequently, the GX2703 employs red accents in design, whereas the XG2703-GS uses green detailing.

ViewSonic XG03 is based on 27-inch SuperClear IPS panel, featuring 2560x1440 pixels & 165 Hz refresh rate. The display boasts 16:9 aspect ratio, 178/178 degrees viewing angles, 1000:1 static contrast, 120M:1 dynamic contrast, 300 cd/m2 maximal brightness as well as 4 ms response time.

The abovementioned parameters refer to the XG2703-GS model that is already on sale (estimated price — $699.99). The other model will be released in the nearest future.

The models are thought to be equipped with a pair of 2-watt speakers, 100x100 mm VESA bracket, a couple of USB 3.0 ports, the same …

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 …

Spire Launches Ridge 6601 and Ridge 6602 PC Chassis

Spire has officially launched a new line of budgetary PC chassis, codenamed Spire Ridge. At the moment, there are only two models within the series – the Ridge 6601 and the Ridge 6602. Both are characterized by the support for ATX motherboards and have many other identical specifications: i.e. mid-tower form-factor, 192x415x418 mm dimensions. Still, there are some differentiations as well.

The first distinction between the two models lies in the frontal panel design. Therefore, Ridge 6601 features a laconic panel made of plastic without additional ventilation. In its turn, Ridge 6602 features a half-perforated metallic frontal panel that allows for a more intense cooling of internal components.

The couple boasts identical expansion facilities with two 5.25-inch buckets for optical drives, four 3.5-inch buckets for HDD/SSD, and seven expansion slots. Connectivity options are introduced by a set of frontal interfaces, including two audio slots, one USB 2.0, and one USB …
