Struggling enterprise services provider and smartphone manufacturer Blackberry announced another change in management less than two years following the departure of long-time co-CEOs Mike Lazaridis and Jim Basille.
Supply chains are fraught with risk, from natural disasters to other risks that have even higher probability of occurrence and potentially equal or greater impacts.
Like PC computing in the 80s, Internet computing in the 90s and mobile computing in the early 2000s, the Internet of Things will be the driving factor behind semiconductor solution development in this decade.
Medical represents a potentially high-growth market for industrial PCs, but will it bring the growth that industrial PC vendors are seeking?
The next wave of wearable computers will use increasingly efficient, low power displays, stretchable electronics and even energy harvesting to extend battery life as more functionality is incorporated into any given device.
The world market for programmable logic controllers was severely challenged in 2012 as it went through its first downturn since 2009. As a result, most major markets contracted. So where will the growth come from?
How confident are solar PV companies that their systems will last for 25 years? And how realistic are the assumptions they use to make that claim?
Facing uncertainty over future energy-efficiency regulations, pump suppliers must strike a balance between touting energy efficiency and providing cost-effective solutions
Formed in 2000, the National Nanotechnology Initiative has five goals to transition the semiconductor industry to next-generation nanoelectronics. At stake is the competitiveness of the U.S. semiconductor industry.
As more industrial equipment is shipped with networking capabilities industrial OEMs must decide which technology to adopt: fieldbus or Ethernet. And what about adding wireless on factory floor?
How can the global electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry reverse its long-term decline in margins without raising prices? The answer may be as simple as dropping the “E” from the EMS moniker.
Electric motors account for nearly 50 percent of our global energy consumption so designing more energy-efficient motors is or paramount importance. There are three paths developers are taking..
A few years ago, 3-D TV came onto the market with the promise of transforming how people watch TV. It didn’t deliver. Will 4K TV meet the same fate?
After seeing labor rates in China le rise to more than $34 per hour, “re-shoring” or “on-shoring” some production “back home” has been receiving quite a bit of news coverage. But is it warranted?
SIGGRAPH is billed as the world’s largest, most influential annual conference and exhibition in computer graphics and interactive techniques. The event features five days of research results, demos, educational sessions, art, screenings and hands-on interactivity featuring the community’s latest technical achievements, plus three days of commercial exhibits displaying the industry's current hardware, software and services.
Based in Detroit, Michigan, America’s capital for electric-vehicle manufacturing, Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo highlights advances right across the powertrain. From passenger and commercial vehicles to off-highway industrial vehicles, this manufacturing and engineering event showcases the latest innovations across a vast range of vehicles. Running concurrent to the exhibition is the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference, which attracts technical leaders and executives from global technology companies to reveal what is driving demand, and shaping novel technologies and new innovations at the cutting edge.
The wide-ranging sessions cover performance vehicle technology transfer, technology transfer from aerospace to EV, technologies for improving efficiency and performance of H/EVs, the impact of autonomous driving features, 48V and low-voltage mild-hybrid architectures (including energy storage design considerations), electric and hybrid bus development, the commercial and vocational electric vehicle sector, P0-P4 architectures and more.
Since 2010 this dual event has experienced exponential growth achieving a sell-out exhibition and record attendance year on year, and bringing in some of the leading names as exhibitors, speakers, delegates and visitors, including Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, American Airlines, Hyundai, Ford, Valeo, BorgWarner, NovaBus, Chrysler, NASA, GM and many more.
Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo is attended by industry leaders, businesspeople, technicians, consultants, and research and development professionals, all looking for greater efficiency, safety, and cost reduction.
