AAEON Releases New Type 6 COM Express Module, COM-BT CPU Board, Boosting Performance up to 30%
November 19, 2014
Taipei, Taiwan — AAEON®, a major developer of industrial computing solutions, launches the versatile COM-BT. Powered by the Intel® Atom™ E3800 series processors, the board offers an economical and eco-friendly computing solution with substantial performance. Compared with its predecessor, the COM-CV, graphics processing capabilities and overall performance of the COM-BT have a gain of up to 30%, while drawing less power. Windows® 7, Windows® 8.1, and LINUX kernel 3.0.x.x or higher are supported. For system memory, DDR3L memory, up to 8GB is supported. The module comes equipped with an eDP (embedded DisplayPort) interface and a backlight controller on the module, saving users the trouble of designing it onto the carrier board. The eDP allows a closed connection between the display device and the board that ensures it is not affected by any external interference. The board offers SATA, GPIO, USB 3.0 and 2.0, and VGA support as well as three PCI-E channels for a variety of expansion on the carrier board, such as additional LAN cards and I/O interfaces.

The following information was released by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT): If LCD TVs start getting much more colorful - and energy-efficient - in the next few years, it will probably be thanks to MIT spinout QD Vision, a pioneer of quantum-dot television displays. Quantum dots are light-emitting semiconductor nanocrystals that can be tuned - by changing their size, nanometer by nanometer - to emit all colors across the visible spectrum. By tuning these dots to red and green, and using a blue backlight to energize them, QD Vision has developed an optical component that can boost the color gamut for LCD televisions by roughly 50 percent, and increase energy-efficiency by around 20 percent.

As a result, the city of New York has been left with many thousands of largely obsolete phones and phone booths along its streets. In an effort to find a use for this aging infrastructure, the city has re-imagined them as a new type of asset that will provide free 24-hour a day gigabit Wi-Fi, free phone calls to anywhere in the United States, touch-screen monitors that access city services and maps, along with a handy charging port for your cellphone.

eMagin Reports 3Q 2014 Earnings
November 19, 2014
eMagin Corp. has reported financial results and corporate highlights for the third quarter ended September 30. Andrew G. Sculley, President and CEO, stated, "In the quarter, we completed the install of equipment for producing ultra-high brightness direct-patterned displays, we made improvements to the clean room and we performed scheduled maintenance on both of our OLED deposition tools, which had been overdue. These were important accomplishments but resulted in fewer production days which impacted revenues. The clean room improvements and the OLED deposition tool maintenance have already contributed to improved yield and we expect improved yield in the coming quarters. We also made impactful additions of other new equipment which has automated some production processes that were previously done manually. As a result, we were able to maintain our gross margin on a sequential basis from the second quarter despite lower volumes and expect our bottom-line performance to improve going forward.
