USB used as an Analog-RF Port

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

Most associate USB and it’s hardware as a digital and system data transfer protocol only.  Thinking of USB in terms of Analog and RF has only recently been a subject of interest in USB design, a necessity with the advent of USB 3 speeds and protocols.   In fact, RF effects become dominant in the data transfer speeds involved with in USB 3.    CurrentRF has developed a methodologies and technologies that allow server and network device USB ports, normally thought as digital and system data transfer ports, to be used as Analog/RF pickup ports for system noise and power reduction.

If one opens and ignores the data lines used for any flavor of USB, and focuses only on the resident +5V power and ground lines, one will see a rich source of RF frequencies of significant magnitude, that would enable energy harvesting techniques to be employed to recover this resident, generated energy.  In fact, if one utilizes an ac coupled spectrum analyzer of sufficient bandwidth, one will not only see frequency spikes and noise related to USB data transfers, but “coupled in” frequencies and noise energies related to other aspects of servers and network devices.


Is “Lifecare” the Next Killer App?

The world population hit 7 billion last fall, with a billion more expected in a dozen years. “Lifecare” represents an incredible opportunity for the semiconductor industry to promote health, energy conservation, safety and productivity. From smart city infrastructure to medical care advances, from sensors and controls to nanotechnology, what new EDA ecosystems will emerge to better model the real world? Panelists participating in the discussion “Is Lifecare the Next Killer App?” at the Design Automation Conference on June 4, 2012 addressed the question and their remarks are quite enlightening. Moderator Rick Merritt, Editor at large, Electronic Engineering Times led the discussion, which included Kristopher Ardis from Maxim Integrated Products, Fabrice Hoerner, from QUALCOMM Inc. and Greg Fawcett from Palo Alto Research Center.
