NI and Samsung collaborate on 5G new radio interoperability device testing for 28 GHz

NI announced plans to collaborate with Samsung Electronics Co. to develop 5G test UEs for 5G New Radio. The first public demonstration of this collaboration will show Samsung’s 28 GHz base station communicating with an NI test UE at MWC 2018 in Barcelona next week. The 3GPP officially released a first draft of the 5G NR standard in December 2017. An important next step in the formation of a new 5G ecosystem calls for equipment and device manufacturers to test their implementations that conform to this standard with each other to achieve the goal of interoperability. Interoperability device testing determines whether the base station and device can establish and maintain a robust communication link capable of achieving 5G performance in prescribed test conditions.

Apple in talks to buy cobalt directly from miners

Apple Inc. is in talks to buy long-term supplies of cobalt directly from miners for the first time, according to people familiar with the matter, seeking to ensure it will have enough of the key battery ingredient amid industry fears of a shortage driven by the electric vehicle boom. The iPhone maker is one of the world’s largest end users of cobalt for the batteries in its gadgets, but until now it has left the business of buying the metal to the companies that make its batteries. The talks show that the tech giant is keen to ensure that cobalt supplies for its iPhone and iPad batteries will be sufficient, with the rapid growth in battery demand for electric vehicles threatens to create a shortage of the raw material.

The Fraunhofer Institute has developed digitally tunable and reconfigurable RF filters

Fraunhofer IIS has developed digitally tunable radio frequency bandpass filters that make it possible to reliably select the required frequency spectrum while simultaneously rejecting out-of-band signals. Digital adjustability and the option of reconfiguring filters during operation enable dynamic access to a variety of frequencies without delay. This provides a quick and easy way of making country- and application-specific adjustments. Compared to conventional filter banks that comprise multiple filters, the solderable RF filters are a space-saving solution, each one measuring just 14 x 15 mm.

Samsung Electronics begins mass production of industry’s largest capacity SSD

Samsung Electronics announced that it has begun mass producing the industry’s largest capacity SAS SSD - the PM1643 - for use in next-generation enterprise storage systems. Leveraging Samsung’s latest V-NAND technology with 64-layer, 3-bit 512 Gb chips, the 30.72 terabyte drive delivers twice the capacity and performance of the previous 15.36TB high-capacity lineup introduced in March 2016. This breakthrough was made possible by combining 32 of the new 1TB NAND flash packages, each comprised of 16 stacked layers of 512Gb V-NAND chips. These super-dense 1TB packages allow for approximately 5,700 5 GB, full HD movie files to be stored within a mere 2.5-inch storage device.
