first_imgPresto Engineering, a semiconductor product engineering and supply chain management, and Peraso Technologies, a leading wireless chipset manufacturer, have jointly announced their successful collaboration in developing a comprehensive test solution for Peraso’s recently-launched 60 GHz semiconductor products.The Peraso chipset is currently in production with Presto providing test services at volumes of tens of thousands of parts per month. The solution is the first phase of a project that will culminate in a high-efficiency test solution – 40X faster and capable of supporting high-volume production (millions of devices per month) for the consumer electronics market – planned for later this year. The 60 GHz spectrum provides the foundation for WiGig technology, and with the increased demand for faster wireless connectivity, is quickly changing how users stream and connect to the Internet.This collaboration with Peraso allowed Presto to combine their extensive experience in RF test with Peraso’s expertise in 60 GHz ICs to develop a solution for high-speed/low-cost testing where none previously existed. They have made significant progress in the next phase of the development that will offer significantly reduced test times and an overall lower cost of test.The Peraso X610 WiGig chipset constitutes a complete baseband to 60 GHz solution and is compliant with the single carrier modulation and coding schemes of the IEEE 802.11ad specification. Incorporating the PRS4601 WiGig baseband IC and the PRS1126 WiGig transceiver, the chipset provides the core functionality for a low-cost, high-performance multi-gigabit per second solution that operates across the industrial temperature range. As manufacturers continue to seek solutions to bring WiGig®-enabled devices quickly to market, Presto and Peraso remain at the forefront, driving down the cost and implementation time with this revolutionary test solution.The testbed consists of a set of custom hardware components mounted on an automated test equipment (ATE) load board, and associated test programs, that together provide comprehensive automated testing of both baseband (~2 GHz) and high frequency (60 GHz) functionality.last_img read more

first_imgSumber: Director magazine Beberapa pekan ini, nama United Airlines menjadi sorotan sejumlah kalangan dari seluruh penjuru dunia setelah beberapa kru maskapai tersebut memperlakukan salah satu penumpangnya secara tidak manusiawi, yaitu dengan menyeretnya keluar dari pesawat. David Dao, yang merupakan korban dari tindakan tidak terpuji itu terpaksa menjalani rawat jalan setelah bagian kepalanya terbentur bangku pesawat hingga mengalami pendarahan.Pihak United Airlines yang sempat menerima jutaan kecaman dari berbagai golongan ini kemudian meminta maaf secara langsung kepada pihak korban yang disinyalir merupakan seorang keturunan Vietnam yang berprofesi sebagai dokter. CEO maskapai United Airlines, Oscar Munoz mengatakan pikirannya terus menerus dihantui oleh kejadian yang direkam oleh salah satu penumpang pada maskapai tersebut. Dilansir dari laman bbc.com, ia menegaskan perusahaannya akan terus membenahi kekurangan yang ada sehingga kejadian serupa tidak terulang kembali.Sumber: TwitterSebelumnya, pihak United Airlines sempat melakukan pembelaan diri terhadap kasus yang menimpanya. Seperti yang dikutip dari kantor berita Associated Press, Oscar mengatakan, “Karyawan kami mengikuti prosedur yang sudah ditetapkan untuk menangani situasi seperti itu.” Padahal, bulan lalu, Oscar ditetapkan sebagai Komunikator Terbaik Amerika Serikat tahun 2017 oleh majalah PRWeek, namun dengan mencuatnya kasus ini ke permukaan, nama Oscar justru menuai banyak kritikan karena tidak dapat menyelesaikan insiden memalukan tersebut.Sumber: Twitter Akibat kejadian tersebut, Oscar lalu meminta maaf atas kejadian tidak mengenakkan tersebut dalam sebuah rilis. Namun dilansir laman The Guardian, permohonan maaf Oscar tersebut dinilai sebagai tindakan penghinaan dan tidak layak karena menyebut pemaksaan para staf United Airlines untuk menurunkan David, sebagai “tindakan untuk memindahkan penumpang”. Oscar juga menyebut David tidak “kooperatif”. Pernyataan itulah yang akhirnya memaksa Oscar untuk melakukan permohonan maaf untuk yang kedua kalinya.Sikap Oscar yang dinilai tidak serius dalam menyelesaikan insiden ini membuat nilai jual perusahaan tersebut anjlok. Bahkan, sejumlah investor tidak melanjutkan kerja samanya dengan pihak United Airlines setelah insiden penyeretan tersebut terjadi. Menyadari hal ini, Oscar lalu memutar otak untuk kembali mengharumkan nama United Airlines.Dilansir dari laman Reuters, Jumat (28/4/2017) pihak United Airlines menyatakan telah memberikan kompensasi yang setimpal dengan apa yang menimpa Dao, walaupun tidak diberitahukan secara rinci jumlah dari kompensasi tersebut. Pernyataan tersebut diterima dari pengacara Dao dan menganggap kasus ini sudah selesai.Sebelumnya, pada Minggu (9/4/2017) yang lalu, David Dao diseret paksa oleh sejumlah kru maskapai United Airlines setelah ia menolak untuk memberikan tempat duduknya. Pihak maskapai mengaku empat kru ini harus ikut dalam penerbangan menuju Louisville karena harus kembali bekerja pada esok harinya. Dao tetap menolak untuk memberikan bangkunya meskipun sudah diiming-imingi kompensasi sejumlah 800 Dollar Amerika. Akibatnya, Dao terpaksa diseret oleh kru tersebut dan mengalami retak tulang hidung, gegar otak, dan kehilangan dua gigi akibat benturan keras yang menghantam kepalanya.Bahkan, seorang dari Pemerintahan Illinois sempat mengajukan rancangan undang-undang (RUU) yang disponsori anggota DPRD asal Partai Republik, Peter Breen. Adapun isi dari RUU itu sendiri meliputi penumpang tidak boleh dipindahkan dari pesawat kecuali penumpang tersebut membahayakan dirinya sendiri atau orang lain dan jika ada gangguan serius dari penumpang. “Maskapai komersial yang memindahkan pelanggan yang sudah sah menempati kursi pesawat tanpa sebab serius adalah melanggar perjanjian antara penumpang dan maskapai mereka,” demikian isi RUU tersebut.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedPelayanan Buruk Malah Dongkrak Laba United Airlines, Kok Bisa?20/07/2017In “Featured”Akibat Kesalahan Kecil Saham United Airlines Ambruk28/04/2017In “Featured”Karyawan United Airlines Dorong Penumpang di Bandara, Kenapa Lagi?15/06/2017In “Bandara”last_img read more

first_imgAlabama’s Quanesha Burks won the NCAA women’s long jump championship in Eugene, Oregon.Alabama’s Quanesha Burks won the NCAA women’s long jump championship in Eugene, Oregon.It’d never been done before, and all it took Quanesha Burks to accomplish the feat was a couple of inches beyond her best jump.Burks, a sophomore at Alabama, became the program’s first NCAA women’s long jump champion with a personal best leap of 22-8 Thursday at the 2015 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships held at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon. The mark, achieved on her fifth attempt, was 23/4 inches better than Burks’ previous best of 22-5 1/4.Despite the mark, none of Burks’ six jumps in the finals will qualify for records purposes because winds exceeded the legal limit of two meters per second, according to a release by Alabama.Entering the NCAA championships as the nation’s top seed, Burks is also the Tide’s first women’s champ in a field event since Beth Mallory won the discus at the 2005 outdoor championships.She is also the first Alabama NCAA women’s champion in jumping since Flora Hyacinth won the NCAA indoor triple jump in 1989.last_img read more

first_imgShortly after the midfielder arrived at Old Trafford, claims started coming from multiple sources in France about Antero Henrique being involved in the deal. The former PSG sporting director was said to have acted as an intermediary between United and Sporting, and was credited with helping get the deal over the line.The claims seemed very weak indeed, but now they’re back.Le10 Sport report Newcastle could be interested in giving Henrique a role after their takeover, and it’s claimed he ‘notably completed the transfer of Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United, one of the biggest hits of January’.Again, it feels unlikely he did play a major part, that’s if he was even involved in the deal at all.Nevertheless, it’s stated Henrique is currently working with the Red Devils, and has been given ‘a mandate’ to get the signing of Corentin Tolisso done. Manchester United have been linked with the Bayern Munich midfielder before, yet this all feels like more effort to hype Henrique, with even Barcelona presented as interested in the transfer guru.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameDon’t Play This Game, it’s Addictive.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!
