PA Modules and Antenna Control Solutions from RFMD Enhance Power Efficiency of New Marquee Android Smartphone

first_imgRFMD has announced that the newest flagship Android smartphone incorporates its envelope tracking (ET) power amplifiers, antenna switch module, diversity switches and antenna tuner. This fifth generation smartphone from a leading Korea-based manufacturer is the slimmest and fastest Android phone to date and the first new smartphone to benefit from the improved power efficiency of RFMD’s ET power amplifiers (PAs) and antenna control solutions. This Android 4.4- (KitKat-) equipped smartphone integrates RFMD’s RF8017 and RF8020 ET power amplifier modules; RF1492A antenna switch module; RF1119 antenna tuners; RF1136, RF1633 and RF1660 diversity switches; and RF5521 low-band Wi-Fi and RF5540 high-band Wi-Fi switch LNAs. RFMD’s ET PAs are designed to maximize the efficiency of the phone’s quad-core processor while RFMD’s antenna control solutions help optimize antenna efficiency. RFMD’s unique ET technology significantly enhances power efficiency in new LTE platforms, resulting in enhanced battery life across all modes and bands, increased network coverage, and higher data rate throughput. RFMD is a pioneer in the development of RF power management and envelope tracking technology. Unlike traditional PAs that operate with a constant supply voltage, the supply voltage applied to RFMD’s ET-enabled PAs is continuously adjusted so that the amplifier operates at maximum power efficiency. The result is up to 25% less current consumption which translates to much lower battery power consumption, particularly in LTE platforms.last_img read more

Antisipasi Covid-19, Bandara Narita Hadirkan Tempat Tidur Karton di Ruang Tunggu,Tanpa Sadar, Tingginya Frekuensi Penerbangan Giring Pesawat Sipil Lakukan “Elephant Walk”

first_imgTempat tidur karton di Bandara Narita, Jepang (forbes.com) Dengan menyebarnya virus corona (Covid-19) di Jepang, Pemerintah setempat telah menetapkan Bandara Internasional Narita menjadi salah satu gerbang internaional untuk menerima penerbangan dari Cina dan Korea Selatan, selain ada Bandara Kansai di Osaka.Baca juga: Melancong ke Tokyo, Pilih Turun Dimana? Bandara Haneda atau Narita?Dengan mandat tersebut, lantas membuat pihak Bandara Narita menghadirkan tempat tidur karton di ruang tunggu bagi penumpang internasional yang datang dan tidak dijemput oleh keluarga dan teman dengan mobil pribadi. KabarPenumpang.com melansir forbes.com (10/4/2020), kehadiran tempat tidur karton untuk membatasi kemungkinan penyebaran Covid-19 dan pemerintah Jepang melarang penumpang pesawat menggunakan angkutan umum. Bahkan Jepang juga tidak menghubungkan penerbangan domestik mereka. Bila menggunakan taksi, penumpang harus membayar dengan biaya yang cukup mahal sekitar US$300 mengingat jarak yang jauh dari Narita ke Tokyo.Meski terbuat dari karton, tetapi kasur yang digunakan cukup bagus, ini diketahui dari ulasan di Instagram seorang penumpang dengan nama @kazuki01282000 yang tiba di Narita dengan penerbangan All Nippon Airways dari Vietnam yang harus menunggu satu hari di lokasi darurat tersebut. Dia mengatakan sulit tidur karena lampu tetap menyala, ranjang yang terbuka memiliki partisi di sudut-sudut, disediakan makanan ringan termasuk onogiri atau nasi gulung.Tempat tidur ini lebih kecil dari yang direncanakan untuk desa atlet Olimpiade 2021. Diketahui, pemerintah Jepang meningkatkan penyaringan dan pengujian kedatangan di mana penumpang yang dinyatakan negatif masih tetap diminta tidak menggunakan angkutan umum. Mereka bisa ke hotel terdekat, menyewa mobil atau meminta seseorang untuk menjemput.Jepang sendiri hanya meminta warganya untuk isolasi mandiri selama 14 hari setelah bepergian dari luar negeri terkhusus dari hotspot pandemi. Konstitusi Jepang tidak mengizinkan karantina yang dipaksakan. Bandara Narita melaporkan penurunan 85 persen trafik dari penerbangan internasional.Ini akan menutup salah satu landasan pacu pada hari Minggu dan hal tersebut pertama kali Narita telah menutup landasan sejak bandara dibuka pada tahun 1978. Sedangkan bandara pusat kota Tokyo, Haneda, akan meningkatkan penerbangan internasional, terutama ke Amerika Serikat.Baca juga: Di Tengah Wabah Virus Corona, Mitsubishi SpaceJet Sukses Terbang PerdanaBanyak dari penerbangan itu ditunda karena Jepang baru saja melihat lonjakan dalam kasus Covid-9 dan mengurangi permintaan dari Amerika Utara dan Eropa. Tempat tidur karton menjadi cara bagi Jepang untuk mengatasi keadaan darurat, biasanya bencana alam seperti gempa bumi dan topan. Pemerintah pusat tahun lalu memutuskan untuk menimbun lebih dari seribu tempat tidur karton.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Relatedlast_img read more

Pulau Miangas, Garda Terdepan Yang Eksotis di Utara Indonesia

first_imgSalah satu pantai di Pulau Miangas Jaraknya hanya 77 Km dari Pulau Mindanau, sementara dari kota Manado di Sulawesi Utara, untuk menuju lokasi jaraknya 493 Km. Inilah Miangas, pulau terluar di utara Republik Indonesia yang langsung berbatasan dengan Filipina. Dari aspek waktu tempuh pun, hanya butuh 30 menitan menggunakan speedboat dari Filipina menuju Miangas. Meski secara geografis lebih dekat ke Filipina, Miangas secara admistratif adalah bagian dari kecamatan Nanusa, Kabupaten Kepulauan Talaud, provinsi Sulawesi Utara, Indonesia.Baca juga: Mau ke Pulau Komodo? Ada Tiga Pilihan Untuk AndaMiangas terbilang pulau kecil, denhan luas sekitar 3,15 km² dan penduduk 1.000 jiwa. Namun belakangan nama Miangas kembali mendapat sorotan, lantaran konflik pertempuran antara militan pro ISIS dan pasukan Filipina yang tengah berkecapuk di Marawi, Mindanau Selatan. Karena lokasi geografis Sulawesi Utara yang berbatasan dengan Selatan Filipina, beberapa pihak di dalam negeri mengkhawatirkan pelarian militan ISIS menuju Indonesia lewat jalur laut. Tak tinggal diam, TNI/Polri telah meningkatkan operasi surveillance di perbatasan, dan sudah bisa ditebak bahwa Pulau Miangas berperan sebagai ‘pos pantau’ bagi Polri/TNI. Meski bisa disebut terisolir, di Pulau Miangas kini setidaknya sudah berdiri pos militer dari TNI AD dan Korps Marinir TNI AL. Bagi Anda yang berjiwa petualang, menyambangi Pulau Miangas bisa menjadi tantangan tersendiri. Bentang daratannya memang kecil, tapi eksotisme alam pulau ini masih terjaga baik. Tempat paling eksotik di Pulau Miangas adalah Tanjung Wora dimana jika air laut pasang akan terlihat terpisah dari daratan utama. Ditambah dengan lokasi meriam keramat yang menjadi saksi perjuangan nenek moyang orang Miangas melawan orang Sulu. Sayangnya, bila Anda sampai ke tempat ini jangan berharap adanya hotel mewah ataupun penginapan. Sebab, di sini belum ada penginapan dan hotel mewah, sehingga Anda harus mencari rumah warga untuk menumpang tinggal selama berada di pulau yang suhunya lumayan panas ini.Bandar Udara MiangasSelain tidak ada penginapan khusus wisatawan, urusan air tawar juga menjadi barang langka, jadi untuk sekedar membeli air mineral ukuran 600 ml, Anda harus merogoh kantong dalam-dalam karena harga yang ditawarkan perbotolnya bisa sampai Rp10 ribu. Meski serba terbatas, berkomunikasi dengan ponsel masih bisa dilakukan dari Miangas, operator seluler Telkomsel sejak tahun 2010 sudah menggelar BTS (Base Transceiver Station) 2G di Miangas, sayangnya sinyal dari Telkomsel masih 2G di Miangas. Ini artinya buat Anda yang gemar instant upload foto-foto di Instagram/Facebook/Path atau aplikasi messaging, maka dengan modal 2G semua itu tidak bisa dilakukan. Sebagai informasi layanan jejaring sosial/foto di aplikasi smartphone mensyaratkan jaringan 3G/4G.Baca juga: Eksplorasi Keindahan Pulau Pahawang dengan Pasir PutihnyaKarena dinilai punya peran strategis, dan menjadi roadmap dalam pengembangan wilayah terluar, pada Maret 2017 lalu, maskapai Wings Air baru saja membuka penerbangan dari dan ke bandara perintis di Pulau Miangas. Sayangnya, penerbangan ini pun tak bisa langsung sampai tetapi bila berangkat dari Jakarta tetap harus menuju Manado selama dua jam lamanya. Dari Manado akan menggunakan pesawat Wings Air yang melayani rute Manado – Melonguane – Miangas dan sebaliknya menggunakan pesawat turbo propeller ATR-72 600 buatan Toulouse, Prancis. Adapun rute baru ini hanya melayani penerbangan satu kali dalam seminggu baik dari dan ke Miangas sendiri.Baca juga: ATR-72 600, Pesawat Tercanggih Untuk Penerbangan Perintis NasionalSelain dengan pesawat, Pulau Miangas juga bisa ditempuh dengan jalur laut yakni dengan kapal ferry yang menuju pelabuhan Tahuna. Tiketnya pun tak terbilang murah yakni sekitar Rp200 ribu sekali berangkat. Dengan waktu tempuh 12 jam perjalanan dari Manado menuju Melonguane dan dari Melonguane empat jam lagi untuk sampai ke Pulau Miangas.Perjalanan dengan kapal ini, berbeda dengan pesawat yang hanya seminggu sekali. Dengan kapal, bisa hingga dua sampai tiga kali seminggu tergantung cuaca dan ombak baik dari Manado maupun dari Melonguane. Sebab, bila ombak tinggi, kapal pun tak berani bersandar baik itu kapal logistik maupun kapal penumpang.Pangkalan TNI AL di Miangas (TNI AL)Di pulau ini karena sekelilingnya laut hanya ada wisata bahari yang bisa membuat anda terspesona saat menjejakkan kaki. Seperti pantai Merra yang meiliki pasir putih halus yang membentang cukup panjang. Tanjung Panci juga menjadi salah satu lokasi favorit memancing dan Pantai Lawara yang terkenal dengan batu terapungnya.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedAkankah Masalah Keamanan Jadi Penghalang Perluasan Hubungan Indonesia – Filipina?15/08/2017In “Angkutan Ferry”Pulau Christmas, Garda Terdepan Australia di Utara, Surganya Jutaan Kepiting Merah29/11/2017In “Darat”Pulau Rote, Strategis Bagi Perbatasan, Inilah Keindahan di Ujung Selatan Indonesia17/08/2020In “Destinasi”last_img read more

Kaspars Kambala returns to school bench and basketball? – Basketball…

first_imgBook of KambalaThe first game created for the Latvian market was created a year ago. Richard Strike discovered that Paf is one of the few gambling companies in the world that creates its own games. Now it’s time for Latvia. “The first two ideas about my game failed. Then I accidentally met Kaspars and everything was gone. I think that a good product is easy to create as well, this is definitely the case. It was very easy to work together. The name of the game is in English and the game itself is in three languages ​​(Latvian, English and Russian), as the Book of Kambala will also be available, for example, in Spain and Estonia. In places where Kaspars is still remembered, ”says Richard. Kambala himself remembered the beginning of the game: “I studied casino management in Las Vegas. At that time I thought – if someone in Latvia needs their game, then it is me. In addition, boxing is not a big source of profit in Latvia. ” The game is about three sides of Kaspar – basketball, boxing and cinema. Its main symbol and twist is Armand Puce’s book “Kambala…, amen!”, Which was distributed today.Kambala…, amen!“This is my first book to be published. The first that can be read by the next generation. The story is not about basketball, ”says Armands Puče. “When writing a book, it is impossible to explain or repeat our mutual chemistry. At that time we lived with the idea of ​​working together for a year. In 2014, it was issued. This release is not traded. It is more than a social project. Thanks to Rihards, you can feel that the company doesn’t care, ”he continues. Richard did not want to tell how to get to the bestseller, so he pointed out that Pafbet’s website has all the necessary information. With a total of 1000 copies, everyone who really wants to – at their “Kambala…, amen!” will.Kambala’s goals in sports“I am slowly realizing that my sports career is over, at least in basketball, not to mention the Mighty Runners, which I consider to be a gathering rather than a sport. The game of Book of Kambala has also allowed me to understand a significant moment – something ends, but something starts all over again. My image of basketball continues to live on in the game. ” Kaspars starts about his future in sports. However, the boxer still the athlete is not going to throw aside, he promised that at least one more fight fans can expect. Also, Kristaps Janičenok’s question about readiness to start in the Latvian Cup in basketball was answered with humor, but in the affirmative. Kambala is at the beginning of another journey – the coach’s profession.Pafbet ScholarshipKambala says: “Today was my first school day. LSPA C category coach courses. Many thanks also to Richard for giving him the opportunity to become the first Pafbet Fellow. I’m not saying I’ll run and train right away, but there is a possibility. ” Here, Pafbet unveils its latest project that will help athletes continue to live beyond their careers. “As we approach the end of our careers, education is a key moment. Many this spring realized that without sports they have nothing. I invite everyone to think about it. Education is the best investment. I hope that this project will develop in the future and that the next scholarship will be awarded to another member of the Pafbet athletes team soon. ” so Rihards Strike.The full press conference recording can be viewed herelast_img read more

By Andrew JohnsonLocalSportsJournal.comCOMSTOCK PARK – Pitching one inning without surrendering a run can be hard enough for some pitchers.West Michigan Whitecaps pitcher Gregory Soto hasn’t been scored on in a lot of innings.Soto started Monday night’s game and pitched six innings of no-run ball in West Michigan’s 4-2 victory over Fort Wayne. That extended his scoreless streak to 17 innings through three starts, to begin the 2017 season.He scattered three hits and struck out eight, while only walking two.“The big difference this year is I’m attacking the zone,” said Soto, a second-year pro in the Detroit Tigers system who pitched for the short-season Connecticut Tigers in 2016. “My breaking ball is getting a lot better and I have a lot of confidence in it.“I’ve never had this before in my life. It’s great and I just want to keep it going.”According to West Michigan manager Mike Rabelo, Soto’s been superb all season, and his curveball was untouchable on Monday.Whitecaps outfielder Jacob Robson gets back to first base on the pick off play. Photo/Tom Reynolds“Soto was great, he’s been great all year,” said Rabelo. “Jorge Cordova (Whitecaps pitching coach) told me that every strike curveball he threw, they didn’t touch it. He was awfully good tonight.”The Whitecaps have now won four straight games and improved to 10-8 on the season. They are currently in a three-way tie for second place in the Midwest League’s Eastern Division, a half-game behind first place Dayton.“We’re starting to settle in,” said Rabelo. “I know everyone wants to start 18-0, but the reality is that probably isn’t going to happen. I think everyone is starting to settle in and get comfortable.”Whitecaps second baseman Will Savage hit an RBI double to left field in the third inning, driving in Danny Pinero from first base. Danny Woodrow followed with a double to left field, scoring Savage and giving West Michigan a 2-0 lead.Savage added an RBI single in the bottom of the fourth, scoring Blaise Salter, to extend the Whitecaps’ lead to 3-0.That lead held until the top of the seventh when Fort Wayne scratched a run across. The visitors scored another run in the eighth inning on a wild pitch, cutting the Whitecaps’ lead to 3-2.West Michigan added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth when pinch runner Anthony Pereira scored on a throwing error to make the score 4-2.Whitecaps closer Bryan Garcia shut the Fort Wayne offense down in the ninth inning, picking up his fourth save of the season.The Whitecaps will complete their three-game series with Fort Wayne at home on Tuesday at noon.
