Panasonic's Power Assist Suit Adopted by World Para Powerlifting

Tokyo, Japan – Panasonic Corporation, an Official Worldwide Paralympic Partner, announced today that it would provide its Power Assist Suit for use at World Para Powerlifting (WPPO) events and the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

Power assist suit used at World Para Powerlifting (WPPO) Events

The suits will be worn by spotter/loader personnel tasked with moving weights and spotting lifters during the competition. The suits feature built-in sensors that detect limb movements and motors synchronized to provide wearers with mechanized power for performing strenuous tasks easily and safely. ATOUN MODEL Y, the Power Assist Suit model chosen for the event, reduces stress on the user’s waist when lifting or lowering objects from the floor to waist height. The suit was originally designed to support personnel who frequently handle heavy loads, including at airports, factories and logistics, construction or agricultural sites.
World Para Powerlifting officially selected Panasonic’s Power Assist Suit for use during the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. Panasonic is an official supplier of the international federation, based on an agreement signed by Panasonic and the WPPO on September 25 2019.
Para powerlifting is a bench-press competition for athletes with disabilities in their lower limbs. Competitions are organized into 10 weight classes ranging from 49 kg to 107+ kg for men and 41 kg to 86+ kg for women. In large tournaments, it is not unusual for each spotter/loader to handle more than 100 weights of between 10 kg and 50 kg.
The Panasonic ATOUN-model Power Assist Suit has been successfully demonstrated at the Kitakyushu 2018 Asia-Oceania World Para Powerlifting Championships and Kitakyushu 2017 Para Powerlifting Japan Cup, both WPPO-sanctioned competitions. Such demonstrations have showcased the suit’s many advantages, including:
-Enhanced safety and precision when moving weights on/off bars
-Faster weight handling between lift attempts to facilitate smoother competitions
-Improved performance by loader/spotters
-Decreased physical burdens on loader/spotters
-Improved sense of safety for competitors when attempting lifts.

As a Worldwide Paralympic Partner, Panasonic supports the Games with advanced products, technologies and solutions. The company is committed to furthering the Paralympic Games by enabling people around the world to share the passion and excitement created by these world-leading sporting events.
About World Para Powerlifting
World Para Powerlifting, under the governance of the International Paralympic Committee, is the international federation for the sport and is based in Bonn, Germany. Open to male and female athletes with eight eligible physical impairments, Para powerlifting athletes compete in one sport class across 10 different weight categories per gender. Major competitions include the Paralympic Games, biennial World Championships, triennial regional Championships and annual World Cup and Grand Prix events.
About Power Assist Suits
World Para Powerlifting events are ultimate tests of upper body strength in which athletes must sometimes lift more than three times their own body weights. During World Para Powerlifting competitions, loader/spotters will support the competition by handling weights for more than 180 powerlifters. It is estimated that these assistants will cumulatively handle more 8,650 kg of weight during the male and female competitions combined. Panasonic’s ATOUN MODEL Y Power Assist Suit, a wearable robotic suit weighing just 4.5 kg, will alleviate stress placed on the waists and backs of loader/spotters as they repeatedly handle weights. When a heavy weight is lifted, body-position sensors detect torso movements and trigger the operation of built-in motors that are synchronized with the person’s movements to reduce waist stress by compensating for the average motor action potential of the wearer’s muscles.
About Panasonic’s Support for Paralympic Games
Panasonic Corporation first supplied AV equipment to the Nagano 1998 Paralympic Winter Games, first sponsored the Paralympic Games in 2002, and has been an Official Worldwide International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Partner since 2014.

A Sense of Unity – RAMSA's Challenge in 2020 and Beyond

Pooling Knowledge to Realize Acoustical Perfection
Realizing RAMSA’s goal of a “single sound environment that integrates the stage and audience” calls for a design that, even with stadiums and arenas that hold tens of thousands of people, ensures the sound coming from the main stage is the same loudness and quality in every seat in the house. This requires technology for controlling the sound reflection that comes from speakers.Panasonic has amassed a great deal of know-how in this regards not just by developing and providing sound systems but also by taking part in the acoustical design process by installing and tuning those systems to the halls where they are used. All of this know-how is packaged into an acoustical simulation platform dubbed “Panasonic Acoustic Simulation Designer” (PASD).

PASD Greatly Shortens Acoustical Tuning after System Installation
Before, there were limits to what could be done with the preliminary simulations prior to delivering sound equipment to a site, which made post-installation tuning all that more of a challenge. However, PASD runs highly accurate simulations that greatly shorten the amount of time needed to tune the equipment after installing it at the site.
For the main speakers, large halls require line-array speakers – multiple cabinets stacked into a column. To work with these line-array speakers, PASD packages three application tools: Panasonic Line Array Calculator (PaLAC) for exploring speaker configuration (number and angle of cabinets), Acoustic Simulator (AcSim) II for simulating speaker cluster location (arrangement for line-array speakers) and Automatic FIR filter adjuster (AutoFIR) for measuring and adjusting hall acoustics.

PASD package

PaLAC predicts at what distance from the audience seats the speakers should be installed, how many cabinets should be arranged into a cluster, at what angle each cabinet should face and other particulars against seating area configuration, which is based on a 2-dimensional profile drawing of the hall. It also can simulate on computer ahead of time how to install equipment so that loudness at the front and back of the hall is the same.
AcSim II guides the location of the speaker clusters. 3-dimensional CAD drawings of the hall are input to verify the location and configuration of seating areas from above. Then, after deciding the direction in which the speaker clusters should face and inputting their locations, simulations can be run to see how uniform the sound pressure level, clarity and other characteristics are across the seating area.
Once the speakers have been installed in the hall, it is AutoFIR’s turn. Test signals are output from the speakers and the sound picked up by microphones is analyzed on computer in order to calculate the parameters for offsetting the difference between simulations and actual results. No longer is it necessary to tweak EQ parameters one by one while watching a waveform on a measuring instrument, like before. By sending these parameters to the DSP built into the amp, acoustical tuning is completed in a short amount of time. This leaves more time to adjust the sound to what the artist wants to produce, which should give the audience more of what they came for.
PASD does not require a special system to use it; a laptop computer is OK. Moreover, PASD is given to retailers that deal in supported RAMSA products for free after attending a seminar on the acoustics simulation platform. Users have given PASD a thumbs-up not just for the accuracy of the simulations it runs but also for the ease with which it can be used.

Reliable in the Most Extreme Environments – RAMSA Brand
The RAMSA brand debuted in August 1979, at an outdoor rock music festival on Enoshima Island off Kanagawa Prefecture. Despite the blistering heat and large venue, it was highly rated and established its reliability as a brand. Since then, systems and equipment have been delivered to many public halls, theaters and other locations across Japan.

“Japan Jam” rock music festival where the RAMSA brand debuted in 1979

For the first 10 years, the RAMSA brand met the acoustical needs of stages and halls mostly with analog technology. After that, it continued to evolve with the times, i.e., digitalization, large system support, global development, networking support, etc. The brand made its Olympic debut with all-weather speakers at the Nagano 1988 Winter Games and the first-ever line-array speakers were developed and delivered to the Athens 2004 Games. Since then, the RAMSA brand has delivered quality sound systems in the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

40 years of history since the inception of the RAMSA brand

The Road of Evolution Continues to 2020 and Beyond
According to a study by the Japan Concert & Live Entertainment Promoter’s Conference released on March 29, 2018, the number of live performances in Japan about doubled in the ten years from 2008 to 2017. So, halls and venues needing a professional sound system are still expected to grow in number. In the leadup to the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, as well as beyond, Panasonic will continue to hone its RAMSA technologies in order to give performers better means for moving their audiences.

Tiny digital IR proximity sensing module targets wireless earbuds

Ams claims the industry’s smallest digital IR proximity sensing module, which occupies only 1 mm3 of volume, making it suited for wireless stereo earbud products
By Gina Roos, editor-in-chief
Enabling audio manufacturers of true wireless stereo earbud products to develop smaller and lighter designs, ams delivers the smallest digital proximity sensor module, which occupies only 1 mm3 of volume. This is more than six times smaller than the previous 2-in-1 proximity sensor module.
Ams said the proximity detection performance of the TMD2635 is comparable to that of earlier, larger modules used by the leading smartphone manufacturers, but in a much smaller form factor for wearable devices.
The IR proximity sensors provides in-and-out-of-ear detection to help extend battery life between charging, and can be used in tandem with another TMD2635 to enable elementary touchless gesture control. For additional power savings, the device has an average active-mode current consumption of 70 µA and 0.7 µA in sleep mode.
The TMD2635 module is a complete light-to-digital sensor module that integrates a low-power infrared VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) emitter, two sensor pixels for near- and far-field sensing, and a digital fast-mode I2C interface, in a miniature land grid array (LGA) package.
“And because of the split near-far field photodiode offset emitter to detector positioning, designers of wireless earbuds and other wearable and portable devices have the freedom to optimize both the size and shape of the needed sensor apertures in their industrial designs and optimize their products for comfort and performance — either a 1.5-mm circular or a 1 × 2-mm oval aperture,” said Dave Moon, senior product marketing manager in the Integrated Optical Sensors business line, ams.
The TMD2635 is available in production volume. Unit pricing is $0.89 in quantities of 1,000.

Powered by steady growth in traditional applications, including communications, computers, and various industrial sectors, and the emergence of several new and innovative power architectures, the DC/DC converter market will also benefit from the availability of new devices, such as silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET drivers. With their excellent thermal characteristics, SiC devices represent a preferable solution in various applications.
For example, the RKZ-xx2005D series (UL60950- and IEC/EN60950-certified) from RECOM Power GmbH includes DC/DC converters suitable for SiC MOSFET drivers with a higher efficiency that can reach up to 87% (Fig. 1) and a maximum capacitive load of 47/680 µF.
The isolation voltages are 3 kVDC or 4 kVDC, and up to 5.2 kVDC (tested for one minute) with a temperature range from –40°C to 90°C to satisfy even the harshest conditions in automotive and industrial applications.

Tamura Corp.’s gate-driver modules are integrated devices with a built-in DC/DC converter and a dedicated drive circuit, suitable for SiC MOSFETs and IGBT gate drivers. Modules are all-in-one, requiring only a few external components for their operation. Low common-mode noise, high-speed response, and small size are among the key features of these solutions, enabling their usage in industrial, robotics, and power conversion applications.
Sensitivity to noise is another area of concern in applications such as automotive, transport, and industrial fields, which require low electromagnetic interference (EMI) power solutions. While EMI filtering or metal shielding add cost to a design, low-noise µModule technology from Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) provides a possible alternative to minimize EMI emissions with a high level of efficiency at high switching frequencies.

ADI’s LTM8003H is designed to meet the specifications of an internal operating temperature range between –40°C and 150°C, required by automotive, industrial, and military applications, where the power supply circuits must operate continuously and safely (Fig. 2).
High-efficiency data centers
Even as the demand for more power is growing, there are increasingly stringent requirements for the weight and size of the power supply. This is the main reason why more companies are converting their distribution and power systems from traditional 12 V to 48 V. Data centers, cloud servers, machine learning, and deep learning applications are demanding power at an ever-increasing rate, due to the extensive use of CPUs, GPUs, and other computational devices. Switching from a 12-V to a 48-V power bus requires careful selection of components and appropriate design techniques.
Infineon Technologies AG has introduced an innovative, high-efficiency, two-stage architecture for 48-V power distribution, particularly suitable for data centers. Based on its zero-voltage-switching (ZSC) switched capacitor converter, the new architecture can efficiently power up CPUs, GPUs, SoCs, ASICs, and memory modules. 
Combining the ZSC technology with gallium nitride (GaN) high-electron-mobility transistors (HEMTs), such as the CoolGan 600-V devices, results in optimized power flow and high performance for next-generation data centers. The ZSC converter can provide the highest level of efficiency and power density for applications based on a 48-V bus voltage.

The combined use of the ZSC converters with the best multi-phase buck regulators delivers efficiency equal to or greater than 94% and power density higher than the market average for systems powered at 48 V. Fig. 3 shows an evaluation board, based on the ZSC converter, that implements the two-stage architecture. 
Motion control
Motor control is a methodology and technology that covers a wide range of applications from the simple control of fans and pumps to the more complex problem of industrial control, such as robotics and servomechanisms. The closed-loop-control algorithm requires the measurement of a three-phase motor current and the rotor position. This control involves high-side and low-side current amplifiers, Hall-effect sensors, and ADC converters capable of working accurately in challenging environments.
Hall technology has replaced many traditional current-control techniques in various applications, including level measurement and motor control. Hall-effect devices provide a robust and simple way to monitor motor currents that are directly proportional to the motor torque.
For example, Maxim Integrated’s MAX9640 is a Hall-effect switch that detects the direction and amplitude of the magnetic field. It has an output that is asserted if the magnetic field exceeds an internal threshold, regardless of the polarity of the field.
In addition, current-sensing amplifiers help monitor current flow and provide closed-loop feedback of system loads. Sensing amplifiers are used for overcurrent protection and optimization of power monitoring systems. One example is Maxim Integrated’s MAX40056 bi-directional current-sense amplifier with patented pulse-width-modulation (PWM) rejection (Fig. 4).

Industry 4.0 is usually associated with opportunities for manufacturing companies to increase productivity and renew operating models by taking advantage of digital integration to automate factories and production lines. The enabling technologies, such as IoT, allow engineers to go further, creating a smart factory that optimizes production efficiency using improved motion control and power management solutions. Additional savings are thus obtained, reducing energy consumption — one of the most substantial cost items for the industry — and making gains in sustainability.

For the First Time Ever, Panasonic's Image Analysis Technology “3D Tracking” Integrated into Live TV Broadcast of World Cup Volleyball 2019

Osaka, Japan – Panasonic Corporation (hereafter referred to as “Panasonic”) developed its image analysis technology, “3D tracking” to make headway in the sports business. And this technology is being integrated into Fuji TV’s live broadcast of World Cup Volleyball 2019 being held from September 14 to October 15, 2019. This is the first time that this technology has been integrated into any TV broadcast. World Cup Volleyball is held every 4 years by FIVB (International Volleyball Federation) and it is one of the big 3 tournaments on par with the Olympic Games and the World Volleyball Championships.
“3D tracking” technology integrated into the World Cup calculates the trajectory, speed, height, angle, etc. of the ball and other objects by gauging in real-time the 3D location data of the relevant objects using images from multiple cameras. Within the broadcast, the 3D tracking data will be applied to Fuji TV’s volleyball analysis display system, “Motion Scouter (displays the height and speed of serves and spikes)” and “Trace Vision (displays the trajectory of the ball and the angle of serve receives, the time it took from the toss to spike)” and overlaid onto replay footage. This will provide the audience a new viewing experience that integrates a scientific approach by providing footage of the athletes’ performance and the progression of the game, but also various relevant data.
With 2020 on the horizon, interest in sports will continue to amplify. By further developing and providing its 3D tracking technology to other sports, Panasonic will help bring to life a new spectating experience as well as a tool for athletes to hone their skills.

Large Anechoic Chamber for Evaluating Communication Performance of a Whole Vehicle with 5G Equipment

Osaka, Japan–Panasonic Corporation has announced today that it has built one of Japan’s largest anechoic chambers*1in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Pref. to evaluate the communication performance of a whole vehicle through omni-direction while autonomous and connected cars are expected to rapidly become equipped with 5G equipment.
Radio equipment and antennas for 5G communication, which achieves broadband communication by using multiple antennas (MIMO*2, beamforming*3), may not provide their actual or discrete performance when they are incorporated into vehicles owing to the reflection of radio waves on the body and electromagnetic noise from other electronic devices. In this anechoic chamber, the communication performance of a whole vehicle can be efficiently evaluated.
The chamber also contributes to determining the optimum positioning of 5G radio equipment and antennas that satisfy both the vehicle design concept and communication performance in the early stage of vehicle design with an automobile manufacturer.
The evaluation system in this anechoic chamber has the following features:
1. Efficient omnidirectional evaluation
2. Evaluation of MIMO antenna communication performance
3. Evaluation of beamforming performance
While rotating the turntable on which a vehicle is placed through a full 360 degrees, the system can conduct omnidirectional evaluation by moving the simulated base station tower along an arc and changing the distance between the tower and the vehicle. The system can simultaneously evaluate data at up to 200 frequencies and achieves high measurement efficiency. Furthermore, Panasonic’s antenna engineers analyze measured data from each antenna and provide communication performance evaluation results of complicated MIMO antennas and beamforming.

Ultra-low quiescent current delivers longer battery life

TI’s TPS7A02 ultra-low-power LDO linear voltage regulator claims the industry’s lowest quiescent current of sub-25 nA, and doubles the battery life for applications using standard battery chemistries
By Maurizio Di Paolo Emilio, contributing writer
One of the most critical challenges in electronic design today is to reduce energy consumption. Power management is an important design consideration for many devices, particularly those that rely on a battery for operation. As a result, most systems use various power management operating modes.
Functions like standby, sleep, power save, hibernate, and shutdown are critical for designers to reduce power consumption and extend battery life. During each mode, the currents can easily vary from a few mA to nA during sleep phases.
The advent of wearable devices has made this task difficult, due in part to the need to use small batteries to ensure small factors. The trend toward smaller batteries to accommodate decidedly smaller, lighter, and more powerful electronics has led to several compromises. The internet of things (IoT) and all connected devices have increased this need, requiring a reliable operating mode for an extended period and in a variety of operating conditions. Battery-powered systems require careful partitioning, tight space utilization, and efficient use of the available charge.
The high efficiency of these devices is demonstrated above all during the necessary standby phase for an extended time. In these cases, the energy consumption is defined by the quiescent current (IQ), different from the shutdown current. It is the operating condition of the circuit when it is not controlling any load. The quiescent current is commonly confused with the quenching current, which is the current absorbed when a device is turned off, but the battery is still connected to the system.
Why ultra-low quiescent current?
While the active current consumption is an important factor for extending the life of a battery, the time of use of the battery itself also depends on the other operating modes, in particular, that of standby. The absorption current during the standby phase (Iq) must allow the device to wake up at any time to execute the requests from the microcontroller.
The Iq is the main exponent for the standby power consumption of an electronic system, and is an important design parameter in the modern low-power DC/DC converters used in power management circuits. Iq enables the evaluation of different factors like power dissipation for small loads.
Power management is generally made up of regulators, such as switching ones that increase or reduce the voltage or those with low dropout (LDO). Some involve more architecture and perhaps even a charger. Reducing Iq increases efficiency and, therefore, increases battery life by consuming less battery power.
Power design
Power management circuits include several DC/DC solutions for supplying the sub-components of the device, such as sensors and microcontrollers (MCUs). A low-power MCU influences the energy efficiency of the entire system. MCUs are available in different shapes, sizes, and architectures, but for a connected IoT device, a 32-bit ARM microcontroller is a good bet. These MCUs are well supported by multiple manufacturers, and it is relatively easy to develop robust and portable software.
The manufacturing processes to produce the electronic components also affect energy efficiency. For example, advanced CMOS processes help ensure proper battery usage while reducing consumption. The designers need to balance capacities and dimensions with efficient power management techniques. Increasing the energy efficiency of a system is a common way to offer long battery life.
The power management part involves the use of voltage supervisors to ensure that the entire power system works appropriately. If the voltage is interrupted, the monitoring solution must signal the error condition so that the rest of the system can shut down correctly. The quick start delay allows the detection of a voltage fault before the rest of the system turns on, providing maximum safety in dangerous conditions. Texas Instruments’ (TI) TPS3840 Nanopower high-input voltage supervisor with manual reset and programmable-reset time delay offers this type of solution with high accuracy (Fig. 1). 
Fig. 1: A functional block diagram of the TPS3840.
With the mobile device portfolio growing every year, lithium-ion batteries require special care with a specialized charge cycle to maximize cell life. Battery charging for wearables is challenging because batteries must be both small in size and capacity.
TI also offers the  BQ25619, a new switching integrated battery charger (IC) that supports a termination current of 20 mA. It enables 7% higher battery capacity, and reduces battery leakage down to 6% in ship mode. This device provides designs for more efficient medical and personal electronics applications such as hearing aids.
DC/DC solutions
The selection of the right power management devices for the application is linked to the architecture of the DC/DC solution. Elements that should be considered when selecting a DC/DC solution include the quiescent current (an ever-lower value always represents the ideal choice), and efficiency (the higher the percentage, the better the battery life will be). The ideal is to have an efficiency of >90% at the level of µA. Another parameter is the input voltage range that allows operation even in an almost “dead” battery condition.
Power management integrated circuits (PMICs) include over a dozen LDOs. LDOs are also integrated into microprocessors, graphics processing units (GPUs), and many other on-chip systems (SoCs). The two main categories of voltage regulators are linear voltage regulators (LDO) and switching regulators.
There is certainly a significant use of switching power supplies due to the advantages they offer in terms of power density and overall efficiency. However, LDOs are used due to their low noise output voltage, small size, and low cost compared to switching regulators. There is usually a compromise between achieving a very low Iq and at the same time complying with other key parameters such as excellent dynamic performance, low output noise, and high-power noise rejection.
TI introduced an ultra-low-power, low-dropout (LDO) linear voltage regulator, the TPS7A02, which claims the industry’s lowest Iq of sub-25 nA — one-tenth that of competing ultra-small devices. The new controller allows engineers to at least double battery life, and claims best-in-class transient response for faster wake-up, improving application response times and dynamic performance.
In addition, the small footprint enables designers to reduce the size of the end products, making it a winning choice for all wearable applications. 
The TPS7A02 can shrink the solution size by 70%, enabling engineers to add more functionality to their designs in space-constrained applications or lower system cost by using smaller boards.
The TPS7A02 is used in low-power applications such as in grid infrastructure, building automation, and medical equipment (Fig. 2). By using the device in wireless video doorbell and security camera designs, engineers can achieve 24 months or more of battery life (up to four times the industry standard).
“As consumers expect to recharge or replace batteries less often, there’s an increasing demand for electronics that offer extended battery life, higher efficiency, and smaller size. Low quiescent current plays a key role in helping engineers address all of those challenges,” said Mike Beckman, vice president, Texas Instruments. “That’s why Texas Instruments continues to focus on developing and delivering innovative, low-Iq DC/DC converters, LDOs, battery management systems, and other power supply elements that help engineers solve design challenges surrounding small, low-power, long-lasting industrial and personal electronics.”

TI also offers the TPS62840, an ultra-low-power switching regulator with operating IQ at 60 nA. The wide input voltage (VIN) range of 1.8 V to 6.5 V supports a variety of battery chemistries and configurations. It finds applications in many battery-powered, always-on industrial and personal electronics applications, including narrow-band IoT, grid infrastructure equipment, and wearables (Fig. 3).

Both ICs operate at very low levels of quiescent current, offering a simple solution to help improve the battery life of any battery-powered device. An essential reduction in the quiescent current could make the difference in an application running for a few seconds, minutes, hours, or even days.
