TrendForce Updates on LED Manufacturers
December 18, 2014
Lighting market demands were stronger than expected in the first half of 2014, leading to a period of LED supply shortages, according to a company release, from TrendForce. In a release, Roger Chu, Research Director of LEDinside, a research division of TrendForce, said, despite the positive development, the industry was impacted by clients double booking and distributors rising inventory levels during second half of the year. Many manufacturers were impacted by the markets cooling demands, and price competition as a result. Worth noting, the emergence of Chinese LED manufacturers led to sliding LED product prices. LED manufacturers will raise technology entry levels and find new applications in hopes to raise profitability in 2015.

Gionee ELife S5.1: Thin, thinner, thinnest
December 18, 2014
Last week, over a corporate lunch with a few business leaders in Delhi, I noticed some of them eyeing my smartphone. Minutes later, one of them approached me and asked, "Which phone is this? It looks slimmer than my new iPhone 6." The Gionee ELife S5.1, at a thickness of 5.1 mm, indeed is one of the slimmest smartphones in the world. In fact, Gionee claims that the ELife S5.1 has been crowned the world's slimmest phone by Guinness World Records. Ultra-slim it certainly is, but how good is the ELife S5.1 as a phone?

ON Semiconductor Unveils New Family of Ultra-Low Power Precision Operational Amplifiers; New zero drift, low voltage devices highly suited to precision applications in industrial, consumer, wireless, IoT and automotive where strong stability across wide operating temperature ranges is mandated
December 17, 2014
ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN ), driving energy efficiency innovations, has introduced a family of affordable, precision CMOS operational amplifiers (op amps) that deliver zero drift operation and industry leading quiescent current for front-end amplifier circuits and power management designs. Targeted at industrial, white goods, telecom, wearables, Internet-of-Things (IoT), test equipment and instrumentation applications, the NCS325 and NCS333 op amp devices enhance the accuracy of motor control feedback and power supply control loops, thereby contributing to higher overall system efficiency. These devices are complemented by the new NCV333 automotive-qualified (AEC-Q100 grade 1) op amp offering similar functional performance for power train, braking, electronic power steering, valve controls, fuel pump and fuel injection system applications. Featuring high DC precision parameters, such as the 10 micro Volts (µV) maximum input offset voltage at ambient temperature and the 30 nV/°C of offset temperature drift, make these amplifier devices extremely well optimized for low side current sensing and voltage differential measurement on front-end sensor functions. Minimal voltage variations over temperature along with close to zero offset ensure the efficiency of systems exposed to wide operating temperature ranges without the need for complex software calibration algorithms, resulting in a more manageable design and longer product lifespan.
