“Imagine the possibility: doctors could check vital signs in real-time over a wireless network, so a newborn with a heart attack could be treated at home without having to stay in the hospital. Alternatively, farmers can use augmented reality to remotely monitor livestock or check the condition of their fields.

Sending and receiving large amounts of wired or wireless data every day has a major impact on our daily lives and drives economic development in a hyper-connected world. Technology is critical to unlocking these opportunities.
Data has become a universal need
The 20th century was the age of oil and commodities, and the 21st century is the age of big data. In a world where billions of people and machines are interconnected, the flow of data is growing exponentially, and there is currently no limit to this growth.
From virtual health and smart agriculture to smart cities and smart factories, billions of new Electronic devices will be interconnected to provide and use this data as a source of data. Improve the efficiency of production lines by analyzing terabytes (terabytes) of data generated by factory sensors every day. The data collected by semi-autonomous devices today will enable more autonomy in the future. Automating buildings will help us increase productivity and make our lives greener.
Communication and data processing infrastructure will provide useful, actionable, and valuable data for market leaders and the billions of others traveling on the information superhighway.
In the not too distant future, if you don’t have access to data, your life will be limited, just like no access to electricity.
Data is represented by binary numbers and symbols. Just as each musician in a symphony orchestra is guided by a conductor to keep pace with the other performers, a stable clock and time reference are essential for the synchronous generation and transmission of binary numbers and symbols.
When high-speed data traverses a town or ocean through a cable, from one rack in a data center to another, over Ethernet in a wireless system, or over a high-speed circuit board, it needs to be synchronized or rebuilt using an ultra-clean timing reference . If the edges of the clock signal are imprecise, the analog signal may be sampled at the wrong moment. Alternatively, if the frequency of the wireless radio frequency (RF) receiver is unstable, the received signal may not be properly demodulated.
New technology solves your worries
For generations, quartz crystal resonators have been used as time and frequency references in electronic systems. However, this approach can be costly, time-consuming and complex to develop. It is also susceptible to environmental stress.
Our groundbreaking new TI bulk acoustic wave (BAW) technology will provide a cleaner timing reference for wired and wireless systems. TI BAW resonators operate at frequencies several orders of magnitude higher than quartz crystals. It generates a stable electrical signal through the piezoelectric effect. A very high frequency periodic signal provides a timing reference.
We’ve enhanced support for Zigbee® technology, Bluetooth Low Energy and Wi-Fi® technology wireless solutions performance and ease of use standards based on TI BAW technology, and paved the way for the next generation of ubiquitous connectivity.
