Semtech Corporation, a high-performance semiconductor-making and cloud connectivity service provider, recently revealed number of new products in its Signal Integrity portfolio. These products extend the company's leadership in optical fiber integrated circuit solutions for data centers, passive optical networks (PON), and wireless. The new products offer customers low-power, low-latency, and low-cost solutions for wireless infrastructure, access and enterprise networking, and hyperscale data center applications.
The digital revolution, fueled by the rapid adoption of artificial intelligence (AI), IoT-based technology, automotive, cloud services, mobile subscriptions, and others, is rapidly increasing the data used worldwide. This makes it necessary for data centers, PON networks, and wireless networks to have higher data rates.
To support global data usage and the higher rates, Semtech's optical networking platform offers the backbone IC technology. Semtech continue supporting the data center, PON, and wireless networks by adding more award-winning optical products such as Tri-Edge, CopperEdge, FiberEdge, and PON-X. This helps customers to meet their current and future optical networking needs with the benefits of power, cost, and latency.
Timothy Vang, Vice President of marketing and applications in Semtech’s Signal Integrity Group, remarked, “Optical solutions are vital to connect and enable high performance digital platforms. By improving networks at the chip level, Semtech is allowing our customers to prepare their networks for the exponential growth in data demands expected in the next few years. These new products, announced at OFC, underscore our leading position in the market and Semtech’s ability to address every level of the digital ecosystem including optical module customers, system providers and end users.”

Syntax | January 04, 2023
In a recent announcement, leading multi-ERP managed cloud provider Syntax collaborates with Siemens Energy to design and implement its new SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud (DMC) infrastructure for more than 80 production sites worldwide.
Syntax will implement the SAP DMC subscription contract for Siemens Energy’s five pilot plants in Germany, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. In addition, Syntax will collect critical process data for analysis, process modeling and execution, and resource coordination, reflecting the broad range of Siemens Energy's requirements.
Syntax’s expertise will be used in the integration of manufacturing processes for the company, laying a solid foundation for a digital factory through the development of a standard template. This Siemens Energy template is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. It will then be gradually rolled out to all of Siemens Energy’s sites across the globe, over a seven-year period.
“As an important part of our sustainable digitization strategy within the production areas, this project is of great strategic importance for Siemens Energy. Using the same systems at all production sites is the basis for notably better cooperation, protection against cybersecurity threats, and more efficient interests of the customer."
Matthias Hammes, IT project manager, Siemens Energy.
Syntax provides end-to-end technology solutions to businesses of all sizes. Syntax is now a market leader in Managed Cloud for Mission Critical Enterprise Applications. Syntax has unrivaled expertise in implementing and managing ERP deployments (Oracle, SAP) in a secure, resilient private, public, or hybrid cloud.

Oxbotica, the British-based autonomous vehicle software developer, today announced a new strategic collaboration with Google Cloud that will help accelerate the deployment of its autonomous software platform to customers around the world.
The partnership will combine Google Cloud's expertise in cloud infrastructure with Oxbotica's market-leading autonomous vehicle software to create scalable, safe, and reliable autonomous driving solutions for any business with transportation in its value chain. These businesses include last-mile logistics, light industry, and public transport.
Oxbotica plans to use Google Cloud products—compute, storage, networking, and leading data and analytics products like Vertex AI—to help develop, test, validate, and verify its self-driving technology. It will also leverage Google Cloud's proven cyber-security technologies to help ensure secure use of autonomous mobility technology.
Alongside the core development of its self-driving platform, Oxbotica will use Google Cloud to generate digital twins in Oxbotica's MetaDriver, an AI-powered metaverse that connects and controls virtual and physical fleets together, sending real-time analytics on performance.
Oxbotica's MetaDriver automatically generates a vast bank of virtual scenarios to help ensure the safety of autonomous vehicles. Google Cloud will provide the data and machine learning tools to enable MetaDriver to apply Oxbotica's proprietary generative AI tools to the extensive bank of virtual scenarios including unusual edge cases that are often economically, environmentally or physically impractical to discover in conventional testing. For instance, a user can create a full, 24-hour, day-and-night cycle of sensor data, along with seasonal and extreme weather conditions, from one single data capture run.
By tapping into the scalability of the cloud, Oxbotica will be able to rapidly analyse and process these large datasets to learn across different use cases. This will speed up time-to-insights and allow for more testing and experimentation, which in turn will help improve the safety of the technology.
"We are thrilled to partner with Google Cloud to accelerate bringing autonomous driving solutions to market globally. Google Cloud is a global leader in cloud infrastructure and using its cutting-edge technology and AI powered tools will strengthen our proposition for our customers," said Gavin Jackson, CEO of Oxbotica.
Oxbotica targets industrial use cases, where there is an urgent need to make the transition to autonomy today. Real-world applications of Oxbotica's technology include passenger shuttles operating 24/7 on fixed routes in cities, where there is a driver shortage but increasing demand for services. For instance, in the UK, almost 1 in 10 bus driver positions are vacant, leading to shrinking bus networks across the country.
With Google Cloud, Oxbotica's customers will be able to easily and quickly scale from single prototype vehicles to full fleets. In addition, the collaboration will enable Oxbotica to explore the larger impact of autonomous vehicles on congestion, public transit, and more.
Oxbotica intends to use Google Cloud infrastructure to make available application programming interfaces (APIs) for autonomous driving, which will enable its customers to create new lines of business (such as applications and other products), as well as more easily manage their existing data and services.
"The combination of Oxbotica's leading technology and our reliable infrastructure and AI and data-enabled cloud platform has the potential to accelerate autonomous mobility in a variety of industrial use cases," said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud. "From last mile logistics to public transportation, we look forward to working together to positively impact the lives of end users."
Oxbotica is accelerating the transition to self-driving technology today. It has developed the software solution for businesses wanting to deploy autonomy into their operations safely, efficiently and reliably. From the virtual testing environment, to the software driving the vehicles and the cloud-based management tools, Oxbotica helps any business with transportation in its value chain get the most from their fleets. The company has created a platform that can be deployed today across industries including mining, warehouses, and agriculture.
