Dell UP2414Q review: A stunning monitor - but 4K still isn't ready for prime time
April 22, 2014
When most people think of Dell, they think of low-end, cheap computer hardware - the sorts of systems that are often ubiquitous in offices or college campuses, but rarely deliver a good user experience. Dell's high-end monitors have always enjoyed a solid reputation, but it wasn't until I sat down to play with the recently released 4K (3840×2160) UP2414Q that I realized just how stark the difference was between a truly high-end display and the other monitors I've used. The UP2414Q can rotate up to 90 degrees (giving you a stretched desktop of 2160×3840). Unlike some panels in this class, which feature 10-bit color, the Dell is an 8-bit panel - but it's such a step up compared to mainstream TN displays, it feels like it displays far more colors than its bit-depth would indicate. At launch, the UP2414Q was selling for $1300, but it's come down significantly since then, hovering around the $1000 mark. The rapid price drops make it attractive, but buyers should pay careful attention to the pros and cons.

New Technology Symposium at SEMICON West 2014 to Spotlight Critical Issues in Semiconductor Manufacturing
April 22, 2014
The Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International issued the following news release: SEMI has announced the new Semiconductor Technology Symposium (STS), to be held July 8-10 as part of the SEMICON West 2014 (www.semiconwest.org) technical and business program agenda. The new program addresses the most important and critical issues facing the future of semiconductor manufacturing in a new more technical conference format. The three-day STS conference is a comprehensive technology and business conference addressing the key issues driving the future of semiconductor manufacturing and markets. Aligned with the latest inputs from technology roadmaps, sessions at the STS will focus on the significant trends shaping near-term semiconductor technology and market developments in areas including advanced processes and materials, lithography, metrology, yield, design, packaging, test, and 450mm.

2014 Rank Prize for Envisioning Strained-layer Superlattices Awarded to Sandia Fellow
April 22, 2014
The U.S. Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories issued the following news release: In 1982, then-Sandia National Laboratories researcher Gordon Osbourn published a theoretical paper that asserted the previously unthinkable: that ultra-thin layers of mismatched atomic lattices could overcome the strain of their union and successfully form a defect-free bond. Going against the grain of the times, Osbourn's calculations stimulated creation of the new field of strained-layer superlattices. Just one of the myriad results of that insight -- strained-layer lasers -- today dominate the entire semiconductor laser market. Approximately one billion are produced each year for a market valued at approximately $5 billion.
