LCD driver highly integrated Teardown 7/25/2005 Post a comment Liquid-crystal displays are quickly becoming the dominant display technology for a wide variety of applications-from mobile appliances such as handsets, PDAs and MP3 players to large-format systems like wide-aspect-ratio high-definition televisions.
Process vs. density in DRAMs Teardown 7/4/2005 Post a comment The DRAM marketplace is one of the toughest markets in the semiconductor industry because margins are razor thin, even for the most cost-effective manufacturers. Therefore, DRAM makers must continually find ways to reduce cost while meeting market demands for larger memory densities and higher speeds. The most effective method available is to reduce die size through process shrinks and innovative design techniques such as 6F2 cell design.
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.
