DESIGN & PRODUCTS SPECIAL FOCUSES: - DISPLAYS & INTERFACES October 2013 Near noiseless ADC drivers for imaging Driving TFT displays to the perfection On one hand, high definition TFT displays have become a master component of industrial applications, on the other hand, there is still a lack of interface standardization for the control of these displays. Developing an industrial-grade EMC-certified HMI in 4 weeks The Medical and paramedical sector is constantly evolving. Customers from this area innovate in order to offer equipment that combines both technological performances and quality graphic displays. 18 23 26 - WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS Updating car ECUs over-the-air Getting the growing amount of software in vehicles under control, reducing the costs and raise customer satisfaction at the same time? Is that even possible? Solving the challenges of small cell architectures Stadiums, arenas, other large venues, high rises and dense urban areas need Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) to provide adequate wireless coverage and capacity for tens of thousands of mobile subscribers. 31 34 - DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING Communicating with robots Talking to machines is still an awkward experience. Until recently, advancements in machine interpretation of human speech had not gone far enough to bring meaningful benefits to mainstream users. 40 Reader offer This month’s reader offer consists of three USBbased instrument packages worth 360 Euros each, combining EasySYNC’s Stingray multifunction instrument with the company’s ES-DLA-16 lightweight single channel logic analyser. 46 distri bution corner WHITEPAPERS opinion Can Edison2 convince Detroit to ‘lighten up’? Last Word: Product lifecycle management from design through maintenance 4 50 news & TECHNOLOGY Daimler transplants Tesla drive into B-Class Benz Flexible curved displays to top $27 Billion by 2023 Apple’s A7 chip fabricated at Samsung’s foundry, M7 controller from NXP, says Chipworks Startup cuts through lack of IoT standards The IEEE Standards organization is finally having a meeting in the US to work on standards for the internet of things (IoT). Using 802.11 in industrial applications The IEEE 802.11 standard has evolved dramatically, and is now a collection of standards with downward compatibility. Dialog’s CEO lays ambitious plans Jalal Bagherli has been CEO of Dialog Semiconductor plc since September 2005. Over that time, the company has ridden the mobile consumer equipment wave to success, particularly with power management ICs. Multi-chip LED headlights adapt to driving situations Solid phase epitaxy enables tensile strained GeSn MOSFET devices on Si KU Leuven, imec and AIST have announced a new solid phase epitaxy process developed to integrate germanium-tin (GeSn) metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) devices on silicon. LED packaging market will keep soaring for the next two years TSMC Releases 16nm FinFET design flows Leading pure-play foundry Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. has announced the existence of three reference design flows for FinFET and 3D-stacked ICs that have been taken to silicon. True white LEDs on the horizon Researchers at the University of Utah have found a way to tune the color of emission of a polymer semiconductor in hopes of creating organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), which produce true white light. 6 6 8 8 10 12 14 16 16 17 17 49 51 3 Electronic Engineering Times Europe October 2013 www.electronics-eetimes.com
