Fastap(tm) Keypad

June 25, 2001 5:04 am | Comments

While today's mobile phones can provide exciting new capabilities, such as mobile e-mail and web browsing, the telephone keypad itself has proven to be a significant obstacle to widespread use of these features. The telephone keypad was not intended to browse the web or write e-mails when it was created in 1955....

1 MB NV SRAM Module

June 25, 2001 5:04 am | Comments

Innovative Microtechnology has introduced IM1245, the 1024K nonvolatile SRAM is fully static. IM1245 has self-contained miniature lithium energy source and control circuitry which constantly monitors V cc for an out of tolerance condition, when such condition occurs, the lithium energy source is automatically switched on and write protection is unconditionally enabled to prevent inadvertent write cycles which can corrupt stored data....

3. From Bag Phone to Video Phone

June 20, 2001 5:24 am | Comments

By Alastair Upton, RF Micro Devices, Inc. Smaller, lighter, cheaper, better — a familiar pattern within the consumer electronics industry that leads to products with much greater functionality at the same cost, or the same functionality at a much lower cost. For wireless handset and IC manufacturers, this same trend is leading to smaller and smaller products, with a significant reduction in the number of internal components....
