The Government of Jamaica, through the National Water Commission (NWC), is undertaking a $225 million project for the construction of the Cascade/Claremont/Jericho supply system, which will ensure ample supply to residents of the hilly districts, which are currently served by an inadequate and intermittent scheme. It is to be completed over 13 months and the major components include: Interconnection into the existing Great River to Lucea water supply at Paradise Construction of new re-lift station at Paradise and Retrieve with 30,000-gallon storage tanks Installation of 2.2 kilometres of pipeline from Paradise to German Hill Construction of a 100,000-gallon tank at German Hill Installation of transmission pipelines between German Hill and Retrieve, Retrieve and Cascade, and another connecting Claremont and Retrieve Installation of 18 kilometres of distribution pipelines to serve the various districts Installation of a 250,000-gallon storage tank at Cascade; and as well as related civil works Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill, on Friday (February 1), signed a $20.3 million contract with Share Con Limited for the pipe laying component of the project. At the signing ceremony held at his Dominica Drive office in New Kingston, Minister Pickersgill informed that the contract will provide for the complete construction, testing, flushing, sterilisation and commissioning into service of approximately 2,850 metres of transmission pipeline from the Great River to the Lucea bulk transmission mains in the vicinity of Paradise.center_img Related$225 Million Water Project for Eastern Hanover $225 Million Water Project for Eastern Hanover EnvironmentFebruary 4, 2013last_img read more

CMOS Wireless Transceiver Chip Achieves Wireless Transmission Speeds of 120 Gbps

first_imgIn an effort to further increase the capacity of wireless equipment, Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. have developed a CMOS wireless transceiver chip that can process signals at high speeds across a broad range of frequencies, from 70 to 105 GHz, using their own bandwidth-increasing technology. With these developments, they succeeded in achieving wireless transmission speeds of 120 gigabits per second (Gbps), the fastest in the world.There has been an increase in research and development activities with the aim of developing operational 5G networks for the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic games in 2020. One of the key factors that 5G will need to support will be the sharp increase in data traffic for high-definition video services smartphones and tablets. Additionally, a variety of performance requirements have come to be expected of wireless communication by new technologies such as IoT and automated driving.Conventionally, base stations have been connected by optical fiber. One issue with this approach, however, is that it has been difficult to expand service in areas where it is difficult to install a network of optical fiber cables, such as in densely built urban areas or between areas surrounded by rivers or mountains. Demand for connecting base stations wirelessly instead of with optical fiber is increasing for prompt and flexible installation of wireless networks at large-scale stadiums and event venues with transient crowds in the tens of thousands or during disaster recovery.High-capacity wireless transmissions need to use a broad range of frequencies. To facilitate this, use of the millimeter-waveband (30 to 300 GHz) is a suitable option, as few competing wireless applications use it. But because the millimeter-waveband uses such high frequencies, designing CMOS integrated circuits for that purpose has been a challenge, as the circuits need to be designed to operate near their limits. It has also been difficult to develop transceiver circuits that modulate and demodulate broadband signals into and out of the millimeter-waveband at high quality and interface circuits that connect the circuit board to the antenna, both at low loss. This research group led by Kenichi Okada of Tokyo Tech had achieved wireless transmission at 56 Gbps in 2016, however, an issue was that the band could not be widened any more due to the higher harmonic signals contained in the carrier wave.The newly developed CMOS wireless transceiver chip uses technology which broadens the band of transceiver circuits by splitting data signals in two, converting them to different frequency ranges, and then recombining them. Each signal is modulated into a band 17.5-GHz wide and demodulated, with the low-band signal occupying the 70.0-87.5 GHz range and the high-band signal occupying the 87.5 to 105 GHz range. This technology enables high-quality signal transmission over an ultra-wideband signal 35 GHz wide. The newly developed CMOS wireless transceiver chip has carrier generation circuits built in for the 70-GHz and 105-GHz carrier signals required to use this technology. Conventionally, the signal quality was degraded by higher harmonics contained by the carrier generation circuit, however, the newly developed harmonic suppression technology resolved this problem. The signal quality required for multi-level modulation of 16-QAM has been achieved by using a lower-order multiplication technique and combining many stages of amplifier circuits and the built-in higher-harmonic-suppressing filter. Tokyo Tech developed technologies for improving transceiver performance and broadening the band, while Fujitsu Laboratories was responsible for module technology.This outcome makes it possible to increase the capacity of wireless equipment that can be installed outdoors. High-capacity wireless base station networks will become easy to deploy, even in places where new fiber-optic networks are difficult to install, such as urban areas and places surrounded by mountains or rivers, or for temporary base stations such as for the Olympics. This technology will thereby contribute to providing a pleasant communication environment.last_img read more

Fukushima remains atop CAT Ladies leaderboard

first_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 Yukari Baba shot a 68 and moved into a tie for second alongside South Korean Kang Yeo Jin, who had a 70.Two shots further adrift in fourth were Chie Arimura, who fired a tournament record 65, Shinobu Moromizato (66) and Miki Saiki (67).Fukushima made three straight bogeys after parring her first hole but recovered superbly to pick up four consecutive shots from the fifth, where she turned a corner with a 40-foot birdie putt.The Yokohama native, who has won 23 JLPGA Tour title, carried the momentum over to the back nine and added birdies on Nos. 10 and 13 before making a bogey-birdie finish to remain in pole position going into Sunday’s final round.“My body felt heavy in the morning so I thought I would take things easy but my game wouldn’t come together at all,” said Fukushima.“I knew that was no good so once I started swinging properly, and pushing myself hard, things got better so I am pleased.”Elsewhere, last season’s money title winner Sakura Yokomine and Miho Koga were in a seven-way tie for 18th while South Korea Lee Ji Hee’s hopes of winning for the second week in a row dimmed after closing at 2 under in a tie for 32nd. Taniguchi takes leadKYOTANABE, Kyoto Pref. (Kyodo) Takuya Taniguchi carded a 3-under 67 to move into sole possession of the lead going into the final round at the Kansai Open on Saturday.Taniguchi offset a bogey on the third hole with four birdies at Tanabe Country Club to pull one stroke clear of joint overnight leader Shigeru Nonaka and stay on course for his first win since the 2008 Sun Chlorella Classic.Taniguchi moved to 10-under 200 while Nonaka, bidding for his first JGTO Tour title, dropped to second after making four birdies and a pair of bogeys in a 68.Kazuhiko Hosokawa, an eight-time winner on the tour, was the day’s hottest golfer in steamy conditions, the 39-year-old setting the par-70 layout alight with an eagle and six birdies for a course record 62 that launched him from a tie for 36th into third at 7 under.Taichiro Kiyota (66) and first-round leader Kazuhiro Yamashita (71) shared fourth, three shot further back. GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMEScenter_img HAKONE, Kanagawa Pref. – Akiko Fukushima preserved her slender lead after shooting a 3-under 70 in the second round of the CAT Ladies on Saturday.Looking to improve on her joint runnerup finish at last week’s NEC Karuizawa 72, the 37-year-old stayed one shot ahead at 10-under 136 after overcoming some early jitters with a flurry of birdies at the par-73 Daihakone Country Club.last_img read more
