Wireless Ubiquity (May 12-18)

06 May 2024

The boundless growth of wireless communication technologies has been nothing short of remarkable in the last decade.

5G has swiftly emerged as the cornerstone of cellular connectivity. With unparalleled speeds and capabilities, it now powers everything from lightning-fast downloads to revolutionary advancements in industries such as healthcare and transportation. Meanwhile, in remote locations where traditional signals once struggled to reach, satellite technologies have ushered in a new era of connectivity. Platforms like Starlink have bridged the gap, providing a lifeline to communities isolated by geography or infrastructure limitations.

The staggering increase in bandwidth offered by Wi-Fi 7 over its predecessor, Wi-Fi 6E, promises to revolutionize how we interact with the digital world. From immersive gaming experiences to flawless 8K streaming, Wi-Fi 7 paves the way. And yet, Near Field Communication (NFC) might just be the most ubiquity. Embedded within our smartphones and everyday devices, NFC offers effortless tap-to-pay or file sharing.

Key to this growth is a strong semiconductor and electronics components supply chain, which has been aided by recent reshoring activities and domestic policies.

Let's take a look at the novel designs and applications for some of today's most innovative wireless technologies.
