New innovative Hikvision AX PRO Wireless Triple Signal Detector takes false alarm reduction to a new level

ELE Times - Mon, 03/20/2023 - 10:02

The newly introduced AX PRO alarm product line has the Wireless External Wireless Triple Signal Detector and (optional) dedicated camera module. This powerful intruder detection system provides a better image, more precise detection, and a handy modular design – all working to enhance alarm system capabilities for both homeowners and small businesses.

Tapping into the industry trend of using external passive infrared (PIR) detectors for video verification, the detector protects a property with innovative technology for precise detection and video verification.

Wireless Triple Signal Detector innovation reduces false alarms

In these scenarios, false alarms are often triggered by anything from bad weather to leaves or branches to pets. The answer to dealing with these is to be able to identify them and ignore them as ‘non-threats’. As its name suggests, a Wireless Triple Signal Detector uses three sensors: a PIR sensor at the top, a microwave sensor, and another PIR sensor at the bottom. This means that it can detect at various heights, with a 15m and 90° adjustable detection area, more precisely identifying what is actually triggering the alarm.

Patented Independent Floating Threshold (IFT) technology allows the detectors to adjust their thresholds based on the environment infrared and background noise automatically and dynamically. This essentially reduces false alarms caused by background noise interference.

The detector uses digital temperature compensation to automatically adjust the alarm threshold according to environment. This also means it is much more resilient in bad weather conditions, and enables consistent detection throughout.

Any successful security systems is subject to attempts to overcome it. One of these is ‘masking’, where a potential criminal ‘covers’ the sensor(s), for example with a spray. The AX PRO device uses active IR anti-masking – the detector can initiate a mask-processing sequence to check whether it has been masked or not. The ‘operator’ receives an alarm and can act accordingly.

And there’s more

The optional camera module provides GIF verification, allowing the ‘operator’ to see an image of an ‘incident’ for visual verification. The module has a 2.0mm lens with adjustable angle and can provide up to 20 images with VGA/QVGA/QQVGA formats.

Other features include:

  • Pet immunity up to 40 kg
  • Waterproof to IP65 standard
  • Automatic sensitivity
  • Easy to install and cost-effective, with no power/network cables needed.

In a market where accurate intruder alerting is exploding and verification is becoming more important, the Wireless Triple Signal Detector can provide an innovative solution in a wide range of scenarios.

EMCE measurements with new isotropic antenna up to 8 GHz from Rohde & Schwarz for Wi-Fi 6E and new 5G bands

ELE Times - Mon, 03/20/2023 - 09:41

Rohde & Schwarz will present its new R&S TSEMF-B2E isotropic antenna for the TS-EMF measurement system at the EMV trade show in Stuttgart. This new antenna covers the frequency range from 700 MHz to 8 GHz and allows simple and precise evaluation of emissions on site – even for new radio services. When combined with Rohde & Schwarz spectrum analyzers, the R&S TS-EMF measurement system detects high‑frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) in the environment.

When combined with handheld spectrum analyzers, the isotropic antennas of the R&S TS-EMF measurement system support frequency selective measurement of RF emissions. This tried and tested measurement method simplifies EMCE measurements since the isotropic antenna directly measures all directions and polarizations.

Isotropic antennas have only had to cover a frequency range of up to 6 GHz for standard radio services up to now. The new radio services such as Wi-Fi 6E and new 5G bands such as n96, n102, and n104, mean that frequency ranges up to 7.125 GHz have to be covered. The new R&S TSEMF-B2E antenna for the TS-EMF measurement system has a frequency range of 700 MHz to 8 GHz and can now simply measure this range isotropically.

When combined with the R&S FPH or R&S FSH handheld spectrum analyzers, three antennas in the R&S TS-EMF measurement system now cover the entire frequency range from 9 kHz to 8 GHz. The EMF measurement option for these analyzers provides an automated test sequence on site followed by subsequent report creation. These reports help ensure that transmitter systems comply with the applicable limits and furnish proof of conformity for third-parties. Higher frequencies up to 44 GHz can still be measured with a handheld analyzer and handheld directional antennas such as the R&S HE800-PA to support stirring.

4 basic considerations in migrating to cloud-based EDA tools

EDN Network - Fri, 03/17/2023 - 13:56

As the benefits of Moore’s Law begin to diminish while design complexity increases, there is a need for cost- and time-efficient solutions that can also provide exceptional performance and functionality while lowering power consumption. That’s why cloud-based electronic design automation (EDA) solutions are gaining popularity among chip designers and the cloud is becoming key for furthering innovation and productivity.

A few of the many advantages cloud technologies can offer chip designers include reduced system maintenance costs, advanced storage, and compute resources, as well as fast ramp-up and flexible pay-as-you-go models that aid not only the peak usage periods, but also during the entire chip design flow. While we continue to see the limits of in-house compute resource availability, the cloud has been proven to provide flexibility to scale design and verification capabilities to ensure better quality, lower cost, and faster time to results.

Figure 1 Cloud computing is emerging as a viable platform for IC design and verification tasks. Source: Synopsys

However, as the journey to the cloud accelerates, designers will need to carefully examine their cloud technologies to achieve optimal results. There are four key factors designers should consider when turning to cloud-based technologies that result in better, faster, and cheaper semiconductors.

  1. Data transfer and management

When migrating EDA workloads to the cloud, a key consideration is determining what data is transferred in and out of the cloud. Solutions that reduce data transfer overhead will deliver accelerated time to results and increased productivity.

While there are a variety of models useful for managing both on-premise and cloud environments, the most straightforward model is to migrate the required data to the cloud. In the data management process, the cloud environment must be capable of replicating the on-premise environment, and that starts with determining and cataloging the dependencies for a design.

Cloud data transfer must be swift and resilient to ensure no data is lost when it’s transferred from on-premises storage to the cloud. Cloud storage will need to provide the flexibility to scale in and out based on the requirements of the design and verification tasks.

Storage efficiency is another component that must be considered when designing EDA solutions. Cloud providers also grant flexibility on the type of storage, with cost playing a critical role in the decision-making process for engineering teams. EDA solutions are being engineered to leverage distributed storage, block storage, and in-memory compute that improve the turnaround time while lowering the total cost of ownership.

  1. Cloud security

Data security concerns are one of the primary reasons why the semiconductor industry has been slow to adopt cloud technologies. To ensure sensitive data is protected, there must be a robust data governance plan that identifies who is given access to what type of data, accompanied by powerful access and identity management measures.

Cloud infrastructure vendors are experienced in implementing security into their infrastructure, applications, and operations. These providers have been employing the most modern security measures to protect their data centers while delivering their commitment on redundancy and high system uptime. Working closely with cloud security vendors, EDA vendors can adapt their technologies to securely run their workloads while preventing the risk of data leakage.

Above all, chip and system designers should seek EDA vendors that have adapted to cloud environments while offering encryption, troubleshooting tools, and next-generation monitoring capabilities.

  1. Accessibility and deployment

High-performance computing and NFS-heavy storage define EDA workloads, with a high dependence on system libraries, tools environment, and hardware. Chip designers accustomed to how their EDA flows function on-premises would benefit from the faster turnaround time with on-demand, near real-time provisioning, and a much better consumer-grade user experience when using cloud solutions.

It’s also important for chip designers to consider the investment of time to set up the cloud, from establishing network connectivity to managing their firewall. Additionally, asking questions such as how the design team would access cloud-based tools, how they can best visualize what and how current resources are being utilized, and how much faster certain tasks could be completed are important.

Today, we are also seeing artificial intelligence (AI) emerging as a significant player in the chip design process, which significantly increases the efficiency of both on-premises compute environments and scales compute on-demand in the cloud to enhance power, performance, and area (PPA).

  1. Scalability and cloud architecture

The ability to scale compute infrastructure is one of the top reasons why designers are migrating EDA workloads to the cloud. Several compute-intensive tasks are best when they are broken into smaller parts across distributed compute and storage resources—very much a cloud-native approach.

EDA flows are supported by robust scheduling with streamlined storage to adequately manage distributed workloads. Many EDA tools have been re-architected to scale to thousands of cores along with distributed schedulers that can efficiently use these resources. Another advantage of the cloud is the availability of hybrid scaling, allowing workloads on-the-cloud or on-premises, depending on what is needed for the task.

When leveraging cloud technologies, re-architecting EDA solutions is imperative. Similar to how EDA products have welcomed multi-processing and multi-threaded opportunities, EDA solutions must do the same with cloud architecture. As chip designers begin their journey to the cloud, welcoming new technologies like distributed storage, distributed computing, and more will lead to greater innovation.

TF-M meets the industry-standard PSA Certified security framework, with PSA immutable Root of Trust (RoT) including secure boot and secure firmware update, cryptography, secure storage, and attestation at runtime. Side-channel resistant symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic accelerators are embedded, and key protection is implemented using a hardware unique key (HUK) secure process. With strong resistance to physical attacks, the STM32WBA52 product line targets Arm PSA Certified Level 3 and SESIP3 IoT security standards.

Sharing many energy-saving technologies with the ultra-low-power STM32U5 MCUs, STM32WBA52 MCUs feature ST’s Low Power DMA and flexible power-saving states with fast wakeup times. Together, these features can cut MCU power by up to 90%. There are also state-of-the-art integrated peripherals including a 12-bit ADC for enhanced accuracy with oversampling capability, while error code correction (ECC) on internal Flash and RAM enhances data integrity and safety. Generous 1Mbyte flash memory density provides storage for the user application and protocol stacks.

The STM32WBA52 MCUs will be included in ST’s 10-year product-longevity program, which renews long-term assurances of production every year.
