ON Semiconductor has developed a range of image co-processors to work with 1.2 and 2 megapixel image sensors specifically in automotive rear view and surround view cameras. According to Sandor Barna, vice president at ON Semiconductor, the processor will support both 1080p and 720p video in automotive applications. “We have added higher resolution, multiple interfaces and new automotive-targeted features such as ASIL support,” said Barna. The AP0200, AP0201 and AP0202 support up to 2 MP 1080p image sensors, and the AP0102ATRead more
Connected vehicles will create a new business opportunity proving the internet-based mobile services to the driver. Car manufacturers will soon be competing against technology companies to provide the online services to connected cars. Autonomous connected vehicles are seen as the first major market for so-called internet of things (IoT). This will be an important market for IC and hardware system suppliers. But arguably the biggest market opportunity will be in the provision v of onlineRead more
Murata has developed a water-repellent coating that it claims will increase the reliability of multi-layer ceramic capacitors. At issue is condensation – not just between the PCB and he capacitor, but on any capacitor surface that can gather condensation. When water wets the surface of the capacitor – top diagram – electromigration of electrode metals can occur which can eventually grow into a short circuit between the capacitor electrodes. With the anti-wetting coating, which isRead more
USB Type-C Could a USB connector support 4K high definition video? This is what the industry intends and a new look USB connector is likely to start appearing in PCs, TVs and mobiles over the next year. The Type-C connector, as it is called, is expected to take over from the micro USB as the standard connector for multi-gigabit USB 3.0 interfaces. What do USB Type-C connectors offer over the Type-A and Type-B USB connectors weRead more
Car-hacking demonstrations have recently shown the vulnerability of mobile connections to hackers ARM has bought the five year-old Israeli security firm Sansa which has a hardware solution for mobile connectivity. The price is thought to be somewhere around $90 million. Sansa, which was called Discretix until last October, has had $37 million of venture capital money and is backed by both Sequoia and Accel, among others. Car-hacking demonstrations have recently shown the vulnerability of mobile connectionsRead more
Drew Nelson President Obama and Vice President Biden IQE has been announced as a key partner in a new consortium to establish the United States’ first Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation (IP-IMI). Created as part of President Obama’s National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI), the IP-IMI was launched this week in Rochester, NY by US Vice President Biden as the sixth of nine new manufacturing institutes designed to bring industry together with academia andRead more
Server power measured per programme by Fujitsu Aiming to cut power waste in data centres, Fujitsu Labs has developed a way to determine how much energy each programme running on a CPU consumes. It adds to the capability, called RAPL, of some Intel CPUs to measure overall power consumption. “According to a report by the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan’s datacenters consume an average of 7.72 billion kWh per year,” said Fujitsu. “OneRead more
The market for M2M cellular modules and wireless terminals is predicted to grow dramatically over the next three years. By the end of 2019 the market for cellular M2M modules is expected to reach $2.2bn, according to a new report by Beecham Research. The numbers of modules and wireless terminal is predicted to more than double in the same period. Despite the move to 3G and 4G and talk of 5G, Beecham Research says thatRead more
Electrical reliability and protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD) has become more important to IC designers as on-chip geometries shrink and device complex increases. ESD is not a new phenomenon in chip design but its importance to IC designers has increased in recent years. The main factors for this are: · Smaller on chip geometries for wiring as well as feature size. · Multiple power islands on the one chip · Designing in third-party silicon IPRead more
Having fallen from the peak of the Top 500 list of super computers a few years ago, Japan’s K computer is back up there again, this time on the Graph 500 supercomputer ranking. Graph 500 is a relatively new benchmark, from 2010, which seeks to measure supercomputers on data-intensive loads rather than simple speed, “with the goal of improving computing involving complex data problems in areas such as cybersecurity, medical informatics, data enrichment, social networks,Read more
Antenova, the Hatfield antenna specialist, has launched an embedded GNSS antenna, named ‘Sinica’, which operates on the 1559MHz–1609MHz satellite bands. Sinica is suitable for all positioning applications on the 1559MHz-1609MHz bands, the company says. It operates with all of the public satellite constellations – GPS, GLONASS, Baidou and Gallileo – which means it can provide accurate positioning combined with global coverage. The Sinica antenna is created from FR4 materials and new dielectric constant laminate substrates. According toRead more
