How about the connector cost? Even a simple DB-9 can run into few dollars--and multi-pin locking AMP and Canon connectors sometimes cost over $100. I am surprised how power-efficient short-range wireless can be; maybe we'll see it replace many internal and external wired connections.

$10 hinge might sound expensive (look how simple it is!)...but it is probably a start...if and when the high volume kicks in it will be a cheaper item for sure...who makes them btw?

Am I the only guy who hates it when people paw at my PC displays? Besides, one of our PCs at home is a dedicated TV/audio system STB, for Internet content. Is display is the 42" HDTV. So it would be a real inconvenience to have to get up from the couch every time I wanted to do anything! And then have to deal with everyone's greasy pawprints!! I'm looking forward to really useful touch screen hardware, where the physical desktop at work becomes an electronic touch screen. And where you can realistically have multiple documents open at the same time and actually refer to them simultaneously. Instead of using touch screens only to make a useful PC feel more like a tablet.

To you it's a hinge, to me it's a HINGE! For a notebook / tablet that sucker has to both swing up and pivot around, include a path for display power and data, maybe incorporate pivot position sensing, last darn near forever, and look pretty spiffy. Oh, and the tooling for one-off production is trashed after only 6 months of use. For an experienced metal fabricater that's a lot to ask.

Time to put price pressure on hinge makers....



Radio
LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
