re: Sharp doubles down on large screen TV

Without a new entertainment system that can sport a UHDTV resolution, TV makers are going down. SAme as PS3 and Xbox360 drove the HD TV market, we need PS4 and Xbox720 with 4k2k resolution to do the same. Broadcasters will catch up later on.

About 1991 or so, we were at the same place with HDTV as we are now with UHDTV. Same questione being asked, same predictions of way expensive sets. Back then, my take was, no. The HD sets will soon cost what the fuzzy, grainy, ugly analog CRTs of the time went for. There was only a short transitional period when HD sets were expensive and sold slowly. Starting maybe in 2003 or so, the prices fell to affordable levels, and in short order just about anyone could make the switch. A simlar, though possibly less traumatic transition, COULD happen with UHD. The good news for consumers is, we already have the required digital distribution media in place (terrestrial, cable, and satellite)! And we also have a suitably improved compression algorithm already in the works (H.265). So really, all we need now is to see some volume production. Of course, this doesn't help vendors so much, if they intend on creating a luxury item that will remain luxury for the long haul. There's no reason to believe that these UHD sets would retain premium pricing any longer than HD sets did. Something like 5 to 6 years, before they reach the price levels the masses will accept. And by the way, if they stay high-priced much longer than that, the pundits will call them a "market failure." But the good news this time is, no anxiety about reception. At least, for those of us who use over the air TV. Internet delivery of UHD might be problematic, depending how fast the ISPs are upgrading their networks.

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
