Global UV LED Market to Grow at 43.51% CAGR by 2018
August 29, 2014
August 30, 2014 ReportsnReports.com offers "Global UV LED Market 2014-2018" research report in its store. An LED is a semiconductor device/light source that emits visible light or infrared light when an electric charge passes through it. LEDs are primarily used in indicator lamps and for other types of lighting such as that used in billboard signs, TV remotes, and brake lights of vehicles. Initially, LEDs would only emit a low-intensity red light. Currently, however, LEDs are available across the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared wavelengths. They work on the principle of electroluminescence, wherein the color of illumination is determined by the energy band gap of the semiconductor. A UV LED displays an ultraviolet light; its wavelength is less than 400 nm. The compact nature and superior performance of UV LEDs is driving new and innovative applications including:

Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band WiFi Router
August 26, 2014
The next generation of wireless routers is here: Netgear is the first manufacturer to offer a tri-bandrouter. This new class of device is designed for the Internet of Things (IoT)-that is, it's meant to handle the increasing number and variety of devices many of us have on our networks. The Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band WiFi Router (R8000) ($299) makes an impressive debut, deftly managing multiple wireless devices on a single network, though a few minor rough spots that turnedup in my testing show that a firmware update may be in order in the near future. We've only had dual-band routers until now, operating onthe 2.4GHz and 5GHz band. The Nighthawk X6 offers a 2.4GHz band and two 5GHz bands. These dual 5GHz bands act as performance load balancers. More and more home networks have tablets, smartphones, and gaming consoles performing heavy-demand throughput tasks, such as streaming HD video. You'd normally want to assign those devices to the more-robust 5GHz band, but with so many gadgets competing for throughput, you'd soon saturate it. The X6 automatically configures its two 5GHz bands on different channels, so you can connect more devices at 5GHz without the performance suffering.
