Hallucinating radar and 5G on a Raspberry Pi 5 in top February stories

By Nick Flaherty

Hallucinating radar, a possible processor ban in Europe and 5G on a Raspberry Pi were all among the most read article on eeNews Europe in February.

The latest results from Renesas Electronics highlight the challenge so the industrial market for chip makers, while the results from Wolfspeed gave more insight into the challenges of ramping up its silicon carbide fab in the US. CHIPS Act funding in the US was also key to the GlobalFoundries expansion and new fab, which will include gallium nitride production.

At the same time there was significant interest in how to chose a charger for lithium batteries, which includes the developing use of GaN  transistors.

STMicroelectronics  is continuing to drive integration in its STM32 microcontrollers, adding graphics controllers, while researchers in the US found a way to make car radar systems see things that are not there. The results of the research are a key message for the developers of radar sensors and processing algorithms.

February also saw the risk of some older Intel processors being banned in Europe. The patent case being brought by R2 Semiconductor has implications for the region.

The top stories in February covered emerging technologies. ARM launched its chiplet IP support for future devices, while Belgian research lab imec is aiming to set up a lab in Spain. This would be near to the Vodafone lab that has been working with ARM on the latest wireless chips, and also developed a second generation of its ‘basestation in a box’. Developed with Lime Microsystems in the UK, this provides 5G coverage and will support the use of the latest Raspberry Pi 5 boards.
