Toshiba robots at Expo 2005 in Aichi, Japan


Ilse Jurriën : 2005-06-12 19:00:00
Toshiba robots at Expo 2005 in Aichi, Japan : Toshiba Corp. recently announced further advances in robotics that take the company closer to its concept of a "life support partner" - a sophisticated robot able to deliver human-centric technologies that provide assistance and support the elderly and young children in the home and in such public places as shopping complexes. One advance enables a robot to distinguish particular voices from among many from multiple directions, and recognize the direction of origin, and interact with the speakers by responding to a repertoire of commands. The other allows a robot to recognize a registered individual and to follow that individual from place to place, even among groups of people.

The new technology opens up new areas of application for 3D displays, including arcade games, e-learning, simulations of buildings and landscapes, and even 3D menus in restaurants. Toshiba will continue to refine the technology, including integration of touch-screen control, and plans to commercialize products based on it within two years.


Kodak innovations for improved digital photos


Mark Peters : 2005-05-17 15:45:00
Kodak innovations for improved digital photos : People assume that digital image capture is exactly like capturing images on film. In reality, the magic that makes digital images look as good as they do was made possible by Kodak researchers early on when they solved some unique problems. Their solutions involved complex mathematical algorithms - instructions coded into your digital camera's processor - that Kodak researchers pioneered before today's easy-to-use digital cameras. Kodak researchers John F. Hamilton, Jr. and James E. Adams, Jr. recently earned the 2005 Distinguished Inventor of the Year Award from the Rochester Intellectual Property Law Association.

Samsung mSWV+ technology introduction


Dennis Hissink : 2005-03-21 08:41:11
Samsung mSWV+ technology introduction : Samsung Electronics, the world's leading supplier of thin-film-transistor, liquid crystal displays (TFT LCD), has developed a new design for mobile displays 10 inches or smaller that allows viewing of ultra-sharp LCD images at a 160-degree viewing angle in a variety of low or high ambient lighting conditions. The company's proprietary PVA technology, which until now has been used to improve off-axis viewing characteristics for large-sized LCDs, has been successfully adapted to work with small and medium-sized LCDs. When combined with a transflective mobile display mode, the new mobile Super Wide View+, mSWV+ technology, will enable a new generation of rotational, mobile multimedia displays.


Canon low pass filter explanation


Dennis Hissink : 2005-02-17 12:00:00
Canon low pass filter explanation : Certain fabrics can have a very tight, regular weave. On close inspection, this can appear as a series of alternating stripes separated by dark shadows between the weave. When the pitch of this weave is close to a digital camera sensor's pixel pitch, light from the subject will only activate selected rows of pixels. The sensor will then produce false colours, which can change with rotation or lateral movement of the camera. These false colours appear as waves on the image, known as moiré. Subjects such as distant geometric patterns are also susceptible to producing this effect. To combat the effects of moiré, camera manufacturers sometimes utilize a low pass filter to blur incoming light.

Samsung eight-die Multi Chip Package introduction


Dennis Hissink : 2005-01-17 02:00:02
Samsung eight-die Multi Chip Package introduction: Samsung announced that it has developed the world's first eight-die multi-chip package (MCP) technology, designed for use in high capacity mobile devices such as 3G handsets and other increasingly smaller mobile devices. As the number of chips per memory package increases, so does the thickness of the package. Using its Wafer Supporting System technology to makes wafers thinner during design processing, Samsung has been able to minimize overall chip thickness as well as decrease the space between the stacked dies. As a result, the eight-die MCP solution offers an unmatched combined capacity of 3.2Gb in a package that is 1.4mm thick, equalling the thickness of a four-die MCP solution.


CompactFlash specification revision 3.0 approved


Dennis Hissink : 2005-01-14 23:45:05
The CompactFlash Association (CFA) announces the approval and availability of the CF+ & CompactFlash Specification Revision 3.0. Revision 3.0 increases the CompactFlash interface data transfer rate from 16MB/sec to 66MB/sec, while maintaining forward and backward compatibility with old and new host systems. Mr. Shigeto Kanda of Canon and the CFA chairman of the board said: "The development of the CompactFlash 66MB/sec interface means that the CompactFlash interface will not restrict the sustained data transfer rate of CompactFlash cards in the near future. Having the fastest interface data rate of any flash cards is a significant step for CompactFlash."
