US factory output continue to increase 7/17/2014
Factory output climbed 6.7 percent at an annual rate in the second quarter, the most in more than two years and up from just 1.4 percent in the first quarter.
Apple needs IBM corporate customers 7/17/2014
"This is about two powerhouses unleashing the power of mobility for (businesses). This is going to remake professions and industries."
CPU sales improved at Intel 7/17/2014
PC client group revenue rose nine per cent from Q1 and six per cent from a year earlier to $8.7 billion. Desktop platform volume in this segment rose eight per cent from a year earlier, and ASPs increased two per cent. Notebook volume rose nine per cent.
Tailand electronic industry to promote IC design 7/17/2014
Strong IC design skills will fuel the growth of the electronics industry, yielding roughly 20 per cent higher margins for operators opposite the 5 per cent from labour-intensive manufacturing.
GlobalFoundries recuiting IBM employees 7/16/2014
"This recruiting is in addition to the hundreds of contractors we have on site supporting specific projects and activities."
Google to develop diabetic guaging lenses 7/16/2014
Alcon eye care division will license Google technology and work with a team from Google to develop a lens that uses microchips and miniaturized electronics.
HP chairman withdraw for health reasons 7/16/2014
"While I'm disappointed to step down from HP's board at such an exciting time for the company, it gives me great comfort that HP is in such talented and steady hands."
UMC validates Cypress Flash memory process 7/16/2014
Cypress' 55nm SONOS embedded nonvolatile memory (NVM) process provides significant advantages over other embedded NVM offerings. SONOS requires fewer additional mask layers to insert it into a standard CMOS process, specifically, three to four additional masks compared with the 11 to 12 additional masks generally needed for other embedded Flash technologies.
New Raspberry Pi microcomputer board is feature filled 7/15/2014
It has a 40-pin General-purpose input/output (GPIO) -- building on the previous version's 26 pins -- so that even more sensors, connectors and expansion boards can be added. Four USB accessories -- including a 2.5 inch hard drive -- can be powered through the device thanks to advanced power management.
Seat sensor knows driver conditions 7/15/2014
The dangers of falling asleep while driving may soon become a thing of the past with the development of car seats which can detect when a driver is beginning to nod off. Researchers at Nottingham Trent University are set to begin how to embed an electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor system into the fabric of car seats in an effort to save lives. Driver fatigue is a contributory factor in one in five motorway accidents, according to a study by the Department for Transport. The sensor system can be used to detect heart signals which indicate a driver is beginning to lose alertness, and trigger a warning to pull over. Should the driver choose to ignore the alerts, active cruise control or lane departure technology could be deployed to gently guide the vehicle. The information could also be sent over a wireless network to a control centre to take further action. Sensors embedded into the fabric of a car seat could be used to detect heart signals triggered by fatigue Professor Tilak Dias and William Hurley of the University’s Advanced Textile Research Group will collaborate with semiconductor company Plessey on the study. The experiment marks the first time Plessey's Electric Potenial Integrated Circuit (EPIC) sensors could be used to extract electrophysiology signals in an automotive environment without direct contact with the body. Professor Dias said: “Plessey has already demonstrated that cardiac signals can be measured unobtrusively using capacitive sensors mounted within the driver’s seat; the requirement now is to improve the consistency and reliability of the data so that it can be used for the intended purpose. "This requires a novel approach to the design of the electrodes, and Nottingham Trent University’s knitted conductive textile technology offers the potential to produce robust electrodes that can be easily incorporated into automotive seats.” Should the study prove successful, the team is aiming to develop the seats initially for lorry drivers, before expanding into the luxury car market. The study has received over £88,000 of funding from the Technology Strategy Board, as part of its investment in the development of internet-enabled sensors communicating with other machines and appliances through an information network, known generally as the Internet of Things.
