Overview Remote virtual smartphones promise the same benefits as remote computer desktops and cloud-based gaming: low-cost client hardware, sandboxed user environments, and persistent user state. The way they work is that the physical smartphone runs only thin-client software and the smartphone application runs remotely on a server. To be economical, this server hosts multiple of these virtual smartphones, taking advantage of hardware virtualization support built into its processor. Slotted into the machine, an add-on GPU provides high-performance graphics. To reduce latency for real-time gameplay, the server is best located near the end-user in the edge of the mobile network. For virtual smartphones to be compatible with physical smartphones, Arm compatibility is required. At the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show, NXP demonstrated the Layerscape LX2160A processor hosting Redfinger’s cloud-based Android emulator and virtual smartphone. NXP’s processor integrates 16 CPU cores, enabling it to host 16 or more virtual smartphones. Games and other software execute with the same look and feel as if they were running locally on a smartphone. Like other Layerscape processors, the LX2160A delivers excellent performance per watt and is designed to work in high-temperature environments, such as being packed densely in a rack in a data center or deployed remotely at an edge-computing site. Although NXP designed it for stringent embedded applications, the LX2160A processor is powerful enough for servers—making it a great solution for Android emulation.     Block Diagram NXP Products Name of Product QorIQ LX2160A Development Board | NXP    Related Documents from Community Name of Document Discover i.MX: Industry-Leading Processor Solution for Media, Smart Home, Smart Industrial, Health/Medical and Broad Embedded Applications    Related Communities Name of Document Layerscape

Overview   Artificial intelligence, and machine learning specifically, is transforming industries from Consumer to Industrial. To date, many applications host AI/ML inferencing on conventional computers in the cloud or locally. Meanwhile, edge computing is enabling other computing workloads to move from conventional information technology (IT) to lower-cost systems close to where data is generated. Although many AI/ML workloads run fine on edge systems’ CPUs, others are more intense: either multiple AI/ML functions must run simultaneously or performance requirements (e.g., frame rates) are too great. The solution to gaining the combined benefits of AI/ML and edge computing is acceleration. At the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show, NXP demonstrated the LS1046A-FRWY platform simultaneously running two or more high-intensity AI/ML functions. These include face recognition, object detection (both general and safety gear), posture recognition, and gaze detection. The scenario demonstrated is factory safety. An operator within a safety zone is monitored for attentiveness, personal protective equipment, and access control. Helping to make this possible is external acceleration based on the Google Edge TPU. Interfacing to the Layerscape LS1046A processor via its copious PCI Express ports, two M.2 TPU cards slotted in the FRWY system offload AI/ML inferencing. Based on the Layerscape LS1046A processor with four powerful Arm Cortex-A72 CPU cores, the compact, cost-effective LS1046A-FRWY platform gives developers a leg up on implementing high-performance AI/ML applications at the edge.   Diagram     Products Product Name LS1046A Freeway Board | NXP  Related Community Documents Document Name NXP Helps Industrial System Developers Apply AI/ML to Their Designs  Five Easy Steps To Deploy Machine Learning On Layerscape

Overview   The 5G era ushers in changes to the wireless industry and new benefits to end-users. One change is a new partitioning of network-infrastructure functions, dividing the once-monolithic base station into three pieces: the radio unit (RU), distributed unit (DU), and centralized unit (CU). Associated with one or more RUs, the DU performs upper-layer PHY and media-access functions. It shares characteristics of both standard Linux computers and real-time systems and may be deployed in the field. NXP demonstrated at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show a working 5G system, including a DU highlighting how the Layerscape LX2160A processor addresses these requirements. This 16-core device integrates multiple high-speed PCI Express interfaces and Ethernet ports running up to 100Gbps, delivering the needed computational performance and I/O in a power-efficient envelope. NXP also showed how its Layerscape Access programmable baseband processors can help enable fixed-wireless access designs for the customer premises, small cells, repeaters, in-home wireless links, and accelerators for CU systems. These programmable devices help mobile operators quickly deploy open radio-access networks. NXP has solutions from the antenna to the processor.

Overview Home broadband access is undergoing the biggest change since the advent of low-cost fiber. Millimeter-wave (mmWave) radio technology is bringing fiber-like speeds without the cost of digging up consumers’ yards to lay new cables. The problems associated with mmWave signal propagation have been mitigated with massive MIMO and signal processing, techniques that NXP’s Airfast modules and Layerscape Access processors have helped enable. However, as with fiber access, the challenge of bringing the broadband connection indoors has remained. The existing approach is to have a technician visit the site and route cabling and possibly power to outdoors, incurring cost, inconveniencing customers, and potentially damaging property. At the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show, NXP demonstrated how its contactless power and connectivity technology overcomes this challenge. NXP’s wireless power technology efficiently transmits power through a window—one made of low-E glass, no less—from a small indoor unit mounted on the window to a corresponding outdoor unit. The same units also transmit broadband data at gigabit speeds using NXP’s wireless data-link technology based on a Layerscape Access programmable baseband processor. This innovative through-glass approach overcomes a practical and economic challenge of internet service providers and helps enhance customer satisfaction. Diagram Differentiation Complete wireless data + power solution. Proprietary Wireless Data-Link technology enables Gigabit speeds and sub-millisecond latency. 65W+ Wireless Power delivery with robust voltage source characteristics & high efficiency.

Smart Sensor Demo Kit Highlighted Features Multi-protocol bi-directional data stream support from/to any IP-enabled remote system Data parsing and abstraction mapping layer for normalizing data from heterogeneous devices Drag-and-drop business and analytics processing logic (akin to using Visio and Excel fused together) Report and web page builder that assembles Table reports (including data for exposure to the secure API) Time-series graphs Pie, line, spark and other chart types Uploaded visuals such as photos, CAD/CAM drawings, diagrams, schematics, etc. Full location-based services incorporating Google Maps, NOKIA here, CloudMade and Open Street Maps Business Forms assembly system so you can deploy workflow for Firmware push Remote command and control (on/off, settings, reboot, etc.) Device inventory tracking and control Asset management Financial transactions from machines Many other possibilities   Description The SeeControl Cloud Service allows embedded systems engineers to quickly assemble scalable 3-tier web applications that collect, analyze and display systems data. The service is drag and drop so you don't have to script or code to create a web app. The Service natively supports the following IoT/M2M communication protocols: UDP TCP MQTT HTTP MODBUS CoAP There is additional support for vendor-specific communication stacks such as GE, CalAmp, Sierra Wireless, etc. Customers can also create their own device adapter using protocol and language of choice. You can stream data to these data adapters at http://com2.seecontrol.com . We will give you a specific port range for each protocol/device type. You can also send your data through a device API. Guidance is here. Once the data has been received by our system. You will use a data abstraction tool to define fields that are in the packets you are sending. For example, if you send a variable field called tmp_123 from a temperature sensor you will tell the SeeControl service that tmp_123 is a a number and specifically a unit of measure called "Temperature" and then select whether Celsius or Fahrenheit. Once that is done, you can use the rest of the system to build a scalable web app, typically in 1-2 days depending on how complex our solution needs to be.

Winners! NXP received a number of creative submissions over the course of the MRFX Design Challenge. We appreciate the enthusiasm from the community as designers were hard at work on their RF projects. Now is the moment everyone's been waiting for as NXP proclaims the MRFX Design Challenge winners. First Place Winner  Russell Kendrick   |   Bio + Full Project Description Project Video:   MRFX1K80H 50 MHz Project Brief This amplifier is intended to be driven with a modern transceiver with 100 watts output on 50 MHz. To protect the MRFX1K80H from overdrive a series of RF pads are used to reduce the input to the proper level. The input matching is accomplished by using a 9:1 conventional RF transformer formed on an Amidon BN 61-202 core. An 82 nH inductance is in series with the high impedance winding of the transformer. This arrangement yielded an input match of 1.3:1 SWR over the entire 6-meter Amateur band when measured without the pads. Shunt gate resistance is used to prevent oscillation at low frequencies. This is the same approach used in the 27 MHz test circuit from NXP. Bias will be supplied by a DAC driven by the microcontroller that will manage the finished amplifier Second Place Winner        Floris Roosen   |   Bio                                                                         Project Video:   Roosen Single-Ended Broadband (87-110 MHz) RF Design         Third Place Winner Mike Mysliwiec   |   Bio Project Video:   2xMRFX1K80H 1.8-54 MHz HF Amplifier   Overview  NXP is hosting an RF power amplifier design contest.
