ABI Research: Automotive Head-unit Processor Sector Poised for Growth
August 24, 2014
Automotive head-unit processor revenues are expected to grow from $680 million in 2013 to $1.95 Billion in 2020, according to a release from ABI Research. "Automotive head-units are transitioning from proprietary architectures requiring long development cycles and Tier1-led integration efforts towards platform designs. Ford set the tone back in 2007 with its SYNC solution based on CPU hardware from Freescale and the Windows Embedded OS allowing quicker development time frames and independence from the previously dominant Tier1 suppliers. With head-unit infotainment, HMI, clusters, safety, and telematics complexity continuing to increase, hardware approaches are consolidating and evolving towards reference designs and open platforms such as the open source GENIVI stack, already adopted by BMW. This allows car OEMs to increase the reuse of software and middleware while decreasing costs and time-to-market and at the same time leveraging open ecosystems of suppliers," said VP and practice director Dominique Bonte.

NEC Display Solutions NP-M332XS
August 15, 2014
The NEC Display Solutions NP-M332XS projector ($959) is appropriately bright for a small to midsize room, and it offers a short-throw lens to let you throw a big image from close to the screen. Its image quality is good, but not great, butif you need a short-throw projector with XGA (1,024-by-768) resolution, it's worth considering. The TheM332XSis essentially an XGA (1,024-by-768) variation on the Editors' Choice NP-M352WS. It offers most of the same capabilities as its WXGA (1,280-by-800) cousin.It's built around a single DLP chip. As with most DLP projectors, it offers 3D support, which you won't find in most LCD-based data models, including the Epson PowerLite 965 XGA 3LCD Projector, our Editors' Choice for XGA models for a small to midsize room. And unlike some DLP projectors it even supports HDMI 1.4a, which lets it accept 3D signals over an HDMI connection from video devices like Blu-ray players.

Magmeters the largest flowmeter market
January 01, 1970
FULL TEXT According to Flow Research, magnetic flowmeters generate more revenue worldwide than any other type of flowmeter. Revenues from magnetic flowmeters exceed revenues from Coriolis, positive displacement, turbine, and differential pressure (DP) meters. The story is somewhat different in terms of units, however. More differential pressure and variable area flowmeters are sold annually than magnetic flowmeters.

Focus on valves
January 01, 1970
FULL TEXT Universal valve actuator The universal valve actuator permits a single motor and control software to operate almost any Valeo or Cheminert rotary valve, both two position and multiposition. The company's valves and selectors, with their wide range of turning torques, are covered by three actuator versions: high speed, medium speed/ medium torque, and high torque. Actuators include a universal 24-volt DC power supply and manual interface. An original equipment manufacturer version that excludes these items is also available. The universal actuator is CE/RoHS compliant and has a variety of interface options, including RS232/485, USB, and BCD.
