  • Building on natural advantages in business

  • Will drones improve the mobile telecom user experience?

    We've all experienced the frustration of poor signal levels but for those who live in rural areas in the UK, this can be a very common problem that greatly impacts people's quality of life. Many houses and office buildings, for example, consistently have no coverage indoors or only coverage from a single service provider, reducing the choices for consumers drastically. Ofcom’s latest coverage analysis takes urban and rural as source data whereby signal penetration rate is much higher in dense urban or residential clusters that significant population is living in such big cities.

  • Multi-Jurisdiction Robot Wars: Injunctions and Without Prejudice Negotiations

    Online retailer Ocado has been denied an interim injunction to restrain Autostore from referring to 2018 without prejudice discussions between the parties (or any related documents) at a US International Trade Commission (“ITC”) hearing due to take place in August this year. The case is of interest both because it arose as part of multi-jurisdiction litigation with ongoing settlement negotiations and for the discussion of the relevant burden on the grant of an interim injunction in the circumstances. In this note, we set out some practical tips given that the judge decided that there was a high evidential burden on Ocado to justify its application.

  • Obtaining plant variety protection in the UK post-Brexit

    Plant Breeder’s Rights (PBRs) or Plant Variety Rights (PVRs) are a form of intellectual property that protect new plant varieties. PBRs are granted for varieties that are (a) distinct, (b) uniform, (c) stable and (d) new. Once granted, PBRs provide the rights holder with the exclusive right to commercialise the propagating material for up to 25 years (30 years for trees, vines or potatoes). As such, PBRs are an important right for plant breeders looking for a return on their significant investment in the generation of a new variety.

    With the transport sector being the largest contributor of CO2 in the UK, a move towards a fully electric automobile industry will undoubtedly be a significant defence in the fight against climate change. However, the government’s now trademark reactionary policy making, changing the ban of the sale of petrol and diesel cars from 2040 to 2030 has transferred the emphasis onto landlords to take expedited action to provide occupants with access to charging capability and to cope with the influx in demand for electric cars.

  • Integrated GaN solution revolutionises power supply design

    Power supplies are a necessary evil. Customers buy systems for their functionality not the power supply, but unfortunately, they won’t work without one. Like a Victorian child, a good power supply is there but invisible: as small as possible, as efficient as possible and as low cost as possible. GaN technology is enabling high speed, increased efficiency, and higher power density never before possible using silicon MOSFETs. Andrew Pockson, Divisional Marketing Manager at Anglia, introduces a portfolio of gallium-nitride (GaN) chargers and adapters that cut 80% of the size and 70% of the weight compared to using ordinary silicon-based solutions. He looks at topologies that they enable that better address the power needs of today’s industrial, consumer, computer and automotive markets.

Outside some really safety critical markets like aerospace and medical, most BOMs now simply specify a value and chip size for passives, or a generic diode designation, leaving the EMS to select the vendor depending on what they have in stock or what they are able to source.

  • Take the complexity out of Wideband Radio System Design - Mindy Bejawn, Field Applications Engineer at Anglia introduces a portfolio of integrated products from Analog Devices

    In any Wireless Communication System, the critical part of the design is the complex technology required to achieve a suitable radio solution. With an exponential growth in data rates and connectivity, in most cases this solution will be a wideband radio system. Designing such systems is a daunting and complicated task, requiring the talents of highly experienced RF engineers. Most would agree that this is one of the most demanding elements of the design that one could undertake, but such engineers are also an expensively scarce resource and only needed for a limited time. A solution would be to simplify the process into literally a plug and play activity.
