Qualcomms Quick Charge technology can be found in a large range of Smartphone that run on Qualcomms own Snapdragon processors. Some proprietary functionality will be opened up with the announced next version; Quick Charge 4 is compatible with USB-PD (Power Delivery) of the USB-IF (Universal Serial Bus Implementers Forum). Like USB-PD, Quick Charge 4 will be using Type-C sockets for Smartphone and power supplies.
For the connection between these electronically tagged cables that will publish the maximum current they are rated for. The cables will be able for either 3 Ampere of 5 Ampere. For plan...

The Ethernet Alliance today hailed ratification of IEEE 802.3bz, the Standard for Ethernet Amendment: Media Access Control Parameters, Physical Layers and Management Parameters for 2.5 Gb/s and 5 Gb/s Operation. Enabling access layer bandwidth to evolve incrementally beyond 1 Gigabit per second (Gb/s), the new standard will help address emerging connectivity needs in a variety of settings and applications, including the enterprise, wireless networks, and others.
“End user data needs – both wired and wireless – are continuing to grow, especially as more and more users access the network...

Online calculator determines Power over Ethernet distance and voltage
CommScope offers an online Power over Ethernet distance and voltage calculator, which allows users to determine the maximum distance and/or input voltages with PoE and PoE Plus devices. It is a tool that can be used in conjunction with CommScope’s Powered Fiber Cable System.
The calculator includes sliders, which a user can move left or right. When the calculator is set to find maximum distance, the user increases or decreases the power source (in volts) and device power (in watts). The calculator states the max distance,...Read More

With most or all of the work on the Category 8 standard finally in the rearview mirror, the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) recently issued a call for interest for the upcoming revision of the Balanced Twisted-Pair Telecommunications Cabling and Components Standard. The current standard, published in August 2009, is ANSI/TIA-568-C.2. With the new naming convention recently implemented by TIA TR-42, the revised standard will be ANSI/TIA-568.2-D.
“Since 2009 there have been significant advances in telecommunications cabling technology, test procedures, and expansion of the cap...Read More

A recent white paper from APC-Schneider Electric explains specific power protection issues related to RS-232 cabling. The document contends that the RS-232 port often represents the "Achilles heel" of computer installations which are otherwise well protected by UPS systems and other power protection equipment.
The document notes that in an interconnected network of computer equipment, RS-232 serial data connections are frequently used for connections to terminals, printers, modems, and in the case of so called "zero slot" LANs, for network wiring connections. However, the RS-232 port ...

Leading up to the currently taken place IDF (Intel Developer Forum) in San Francisco, Renesas has announced their 4-Port-USB-3.0-Hubcontroller µPD720210. However, there are no plans to supply any of it's customers with it for the moment. A company spokes man said as long as as the chip as not been certified by the USB-IF it would not be appropriate to do so particular as Renesas is a member of the Standardization group.
Renesas is expecting the certification program to start in the forth quarter and will subsequently start to sell the chip to the hub manufactures.
Competitor Genesys Logic has al...Read More

Intel plans more diversity with Thundebolt
The MSI Z77A-GD80 is one of the first desktop motherboards featuring a Thunderbolt connection. Although apart from Apple devices, the Thunderbolt interface is rarely found Intel is working on plans for future endorsement. According to Jeff Austin, head of the desktop processor and platform marketing group, the introduction of PCI-Express Adapter cards to equipment desktop PC with Thunderbolt port are something that could be realised. As of now not concrete details are available, but he confirmed that the use of a Displayport signal through a Thunderbol...Read More
