Under the Hood: iPod video, up close and personal Teardown 12/3/2007 1 comment Virtual display glasses aren't new, but MyVu uses Kopin's on-glass LCD technology and advanced packaging, materials and integration to bring the cost, size, power and weight down to a usable format for consumers.
IDT gears up for shift to DisplayPort News & Analysis 12/3/2007 Post a comment Integrated Device Technology has created a new digital display division focused on chips for the emerging DisplayPort standard, validating a major shift to DisplayPort from analog VGA and low voltage differential signaling in PC monitors, notebooks and inside LCD TVs.
Video quality assessment with motion and temporal artifacts considered Design How-To 12/1/2007 Post a comment Most video quality metrics, including PSNR, JND and MSE, do not incorporate motion information. Yet motion, and motion errors play a crucial role in the perception of video. A new paradigm for video quality assessment takes into account artifacts arising from spatio-temporal processes including ghosting behind fast-moving objects, block artifacts from faulty motion compensation, mosquito effect near moving edges, jerkiness, and smearing from slow acquisition.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
