SK Telecom and POSTECH develop 5G antenna tech

Published

on

SK Telecom and Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) has developed a 5G antenna control technology and filed for a patent, they announced on Tuesday.

The pair’s technology maintains call quality in ultra-high 28GHz spectrum 5G by controlling the electrical characteristic of the antenna.

Ultra-high frequency reception sensitivity is affected by how users hold their smartphones or the angle of their head, but this technology was developed to offset that, they said.

Increasing reception sensitivity also decreases power consumption of smartphones.

Ultra-high spectrum such as 28GHz requires components to be placed in a smaller area compared to LTE, with SK Telecom and POSTECH saying they also took this into account when finishing testing for commercial launch.

SK Telecom, with compatriots KT and LG Uplus, is also preparing for the rollout of 5G in March in South Korea. The company excluded Huawei from its equipment vendor list in September last year. 

SK Telecom is a close ally of Samsung Electronics, and is extensively collaborating with them in 5G equipment research.

Biden Is Giving Apple’s Steve Jobs An Incredible Posthumous Award

Published

on

Jobs, who co-founded the technology company Apple Inc., was arguably one of the most influential figures in the world of technology. Dubbed a visionary, he was credited with being the driving force behind several products and ideas that have shaped the modern world. It was under Jobs’ leadership that Apple came up with revolutionary products like the iPod, Mac computers, and perhaps, his single most important contribution to the world of consumer technology; the almighty iPhone.

After Jobs debuted the first-generation iPhone in 2007, he pretty much set the tone for the evolution of the modern smartphone. Even in 2022, more than a decade after his passing, the modern smartphone continues to base themselves on the blueprint and form factor that Jobs created. Needless to say, he has often been hailed as the harbinger of the smartphone revolution — one that directly and indirectly transformed the lives of millions of people across the globe.

When Steve Jobs is posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on July 7, for many of his fans and followers, it will serve as a moment of reflection for such an impactful figure in technological history.

GM Built 95,000 Vehicles It Can’t Sell

Published

In its earnings report, sales across all GM-owned brands are not expected to slow down any time soon, despite the roughly 95,000 vehicles that can’t be sold. GM noted in an SEC filing report from July 1 that these vehicles will be finished in the latter half of 2022, as semiconductors begin to flood back into the market. This could happen sooner, as reports since late April have claimed the shortage is now down to a transport logistics issue rather than a silicon supply issue.

GM highlighted in its report that its third quarter could provide a strong boost to its market share, reflective of growing demand for its vehicles. The company cited a 29% year-over-year increase to sales figures across commercial, government, and rental sectors.

The car manufacturer broke its projections down further, claiming that the commercial demand for midsize pickups saw an increase of 65%, while other vehicle groups enjoyed a 12 to 14% boost. Electric vehicles were also mentioned in the report. Over 7,300 electric vehicles were sold in the second quarter of 2022, which included the GMC Hummer EV Pickup, Chevrolet Bolt EV, and BrightDrop Zevo 600 van. However, these sales figures might have looked more hopeful for the future of EV, if the semiconductor chip shortage not been an obstacle. As of June 30, the company reported 247,839 vehicles (or about 152,839 after you subtract the 95,000 unfinished vehicles) were stored in its collective inventory, many of which were already on their way to retailers.
