Lattice Semiconductor | March 01, 2023
On February 28, 2023, the leader in low-power programmable semiconductors, Lattice Semiconductor, expanded its Lattice ORANTM solution stack to assist flexible, secure synchronization and timing for Open Radio Access Network (ORAN) implementations. Lattice ORANTM now supports tight synchronization for ORAN fronthaul interfaces adherence with critical ITU (International Telecommunication Union) profiles and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) standards. This enhances the stack's ability to accelerate and secure current and next-generation customer applications.
The latest Lattice ORANTM solution stack (v 1.1) has built-in mutual authentication for secure synchronization and support for
IEEE Standards, including IEEE Std 1588™-2019 (default profile) and IEEE Std 802.1AS™-2020, made for Time Sensitive Networks (TSN).
ITU-T Telecom Profiles, which includes frequency synchronization (G.8265.1), Phase/time synchronization with incomplete timing support (G.8275.2) and Phase/time synchronization with complete timing support (G.8275.1).
ITU-T Timing Characteristics of T-BC and T-TSC Class C (G.8273.2)
In addition, a Lattice FPGA-based development platform has been incorporated into the Lattice ORANTM stack. FPGA stands for Field Programmable Gate Array, and it is an integrated circuit (IC) that facilitates the rapid prototyping and final system design of custom logic. The Secure Timing and Synchronization Kit are intended to simplify the testing, exhibition, and creation of novel telecommunications applications.

Infinitum | February 07, 2023
On February 06, 2023, Infinitum, one of the air core motor producers, launched, a brand new Aircore electrically commutated EC motor designed especially for data center’s cooling applications, reducing their power and energy consumption.
Customized for the data center cooling application's power, speed, and torque requirements, it enhances motor performance. In addition, it reduces energy consumption by about 10-15%, minimizing input current, reducing the wiring and protection urgencies of the electric unit, and thus saving costs on wiring, transformers, circuit breakers, and upstream electric infrastructure.
It features an integrated variable frequency drive (VFD), optimizing motor control and efficiency, with IoT connectivity to monitor critical equipment, BACnet and Modbus controllers, transforming building operations. It is about 50% smaller, lighter, more efficient, and quieter than traditional motors, using over 66% less copper than previous models with a sustainable circular lifecycle. Its modular design has reusable rotors, housing, and stators, increasing the model's life.
Senior Market Analyst at Interact Analysis, Blake Griffin, said, "Data centers are growing in size and energy intensity as the world's demand for data grows exponentially." He added, "Infinitum's smaller, lighter, high-efficiency motor systems are a key technology for reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint."
