Global flat panel players ramping all-screen panel production
środa, 14 czerwca 2017 11:56

Major flat panel players worldwide are ramping up production of 18:9 all-screen panels for smartphone applications as prices of these panels are currently set at a 10-15% premium over traditional 16:9 smartphone panels due to rising demand, according to industry sources. New models launched by a number of smartphone vendors recently, including Xiaomi's 6.4-inch Mi Mix, LG Electronics's G6, Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, have all come with bezel-less all-screen panels. Furthermore, Apple's forthcoming premier model likely to be launched in September is also reportedly to come with a 5.8-inch 18.5:9 all-screen AMOLED panel.

Intel contributes high-level pattern analysis language to Si2
środa, 14 czerwca 2017 10:00

Silicon Integration Initiative Inc. announced the contribution of a new integrated circuit programming language developed by Intel Corporation for the 2D pattern analysis of sub-20nm mask layouts. The new language, called OPAL, is a declarative language for geometric pattern matching. “It’s a high-level, modeling language that can describe layout patterns of any complexity,” according to Jake Buurma, an Si2 senior fellow. For example, in sub-20nm processes, wires used for interconnect have an ideal pitch for the mask to chip image transfer during lithography, Buurma explained.

Imec world-first to develop 200V, 650V dispersion free normally-off/e-mode power devices on 200mm/8-inch Si wafers
środa, 14 czerwca 2017 07:56

Imec announced that it has developed 200V and 650V normally-off/e-mode on 200mm/8-inch GaN-on-Silicon wafers, achieving a very low dynamic Ron dispersion (below 20 percent) and state-of-the-art performance and reproducibility. Stress tests have also shown a good device reliability. Imec’s technology is ready for prototyping, customized low-volume production as well as for technology transfer. GaN technology offers faster switching power devices with higher breakdown voltage and lower on-resistance than silicon, making it an ideal material for advanced power electronic components.

MediaTek ends media speculation over China listing
wtorek, 13 czerwca 2017 20:02

MediaTek Inc said it does not plan to list a IoT chip subsidiary on the Chinese stock market to pursue higher price-to-earnings multiples, dismissing media speculation. The latest media report, amid a slew of speculation about the company’s restructuring efforts, said that MediaTek plans to spin off its IoT division, which would then be combined with MediaTek’s power amplifier arm Airoha Technology Corp, the Chinese-language Economic Daily News said. The entity would register as a new company in China and seek an initial public offering on the Chinese stock market, given higher price-to-earnings multiples there.

Huawei claims to have surpassed Apple in global sales
wtorek, 13 czerwca 2017 17:58

Chinese tech juggernaut Huawei claims that it has overtaken Apple in global smartphone sales volume in December of 2016. Over the last year, the Chinese phone-maker has buzzing about its intentions to top both Samsung and Apple as the world's biggest smartphone manufacturer as quickly as possible, and the latest sales data may be a sign of things to come. However, since sales numbers on a monthly basis are hard to accurately calculate, Huawei's claims may not be completely representative of reality.

Toshiba faces fresh lawsuit, plans provision for year ended March
wtorek, 13 czerwca 2017 16:03

Toshiba Corp said it was being sued by another group of foreign investors for 43.9 billion yen ($399 million) in damages over a $1.3 billion accounting scandal uncovered two years ago. Toshiba said in a statement that it plans to book an additional provision for the year ended March for the lawsuit. The laptops-to-nuclear conglomerate has now been sued by 26 groups and individuals since it first admitted to reporting inflated profits going back to 2008, with total damages of 108.4 billion yen being sought.

Physicists have finally created a 2D magnet
wtorek, 13 czerwca 2017 14:04

The number of 2D materials has exploded since the discovery of graphene in 2004. However, this menagerie of single-atom-thick semiconductors, insulators and superconductors has been missing a member - magnets. In fact, physicists weren’t even sure that 2D magnets were possible, until now. Researchers report the first truly 2D magnet, made of a compound called chromium triiodide. The discovery could eventually lead to new data-storage devices and designs for quantum computers. For now, the 2D magnets will enable physicists to perform previously impossible experiments and test fundamental theories of magnetism.

China PERC solar cell production capacity to double in 2017
wtorek, 13 czerwca 2017 12:00

China-based solar cell makers, including second- and third-tier ones, are scrambling to upgrade their production lines for PERC solar cells, eyeing the government incentives for establishment of model PV power-generating stations using high-efficiency modules. The total annual PERC production capacity in China is estimated to increase from 15-17GWp in 2016 to 30-35GWp in 2017, the sources noted. But due to delay in PERC equipment installation, shortages of PERC engineers and mono-Si solar wafers, China-based makers' total PERC solar cell output in 2017 is estimated at only 10GWp, the sources indicated.
