IGBT-based Power Module Market to Grow at a 12.32% CAGR by 2018 Says a New Research Report at ReportsnReports.com.ID Flash memoryID Market trend/market analysis
April 16, 2014
  Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 16, 2014         The declining ASP of NAND flash is a major trend emerging in the Global NAND Flash market. Some of the major reasons for this are low raw material and manufacturing costs and increasing R&D spending by manufacturers. The declining ASP of NAND flash is likely to increase its adoption by end-user segments. It is also likely to facilitate smartphone, SSD, computing device, consumer electronics device, and tablet PC manufacturers to expand their target market. In addition, the reducing ASP is most likely to increase the number of applications for NAND flash, thereby contributing to the growth of this market during the forecast period.     Analysts forecast the Global IGBT-based Power Module market to grow at a CAGR of 12.32 percent over the period 2013-2018. According to the report, the growth of the Global NAND Flash market is driven by several factors, of which an increase in the sales of smartphones and tablet PCs is one of the major drivers. For instance, smartphone vendors such as Nokia and Samsung are increasingly integrating NAND flash chips in their latest models. Therefore, the growing sale of smartphones integrated with high densities of NAND flash is boosting the growth of the Global NAND Flash market.           Covered in this Report           This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global IGBT-based Power Module market for the period 2013-2018. To calculate the market size, it considers revenue generated from the IGBT modules in applications from the following segments:

3LCD vs. DLP; Product Focus: A GUIDE TO ONE SEGMENT OF EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY
April 01, 2014
  There's a lot going on inside a projector that can make a big difference in the quality of the images. 3LCD (liquid crystal display) and DLP (digital light processing) are technologies that power many of today's popular models. 3LCD and DLP vary in the chips that use the projector's light source, often a lamp, to reflect and display an image or video.

Big Shows, Big Crowds
March 01, 2014
FULL TEXT The appliance DESIGN staff had the opportunity to attend two of the appliance industry's largest tradeshows-CES and AHR-in January. Here are just a few highlights from the show floors and beyond: The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) CES was, as predicted, an exciting and at times over- whelming show. According to the CEA, it was the big- gest CES ever, with two million net square feet of exhibit space and more than 3,200 exhibitors. There were more than 150,000 in attendance, including more than 35,000 from outside the United States. One of the most enlightening parts of CES came from listening to speakers, including appliance DESIGN's contributing columnist Gary Shapiro, president of CEA. Shapiro was a constant presence at the show and a great speaker. When asked what the biggest trends were at CES, he noted that there was a lot of discussion about wearable technology (especially for medical and fitness purposes) and in relation to that, MEMs (or microelec- tromechanical systems), which are the particles in smart devices that can sense things like location. He also men- tioned the fanfare around the new curved televisions and 3-D printing. These are trends we observed too.
