The highly anticipated 5G telecommunication technology has features such as high bandwidth, broad data connection, and low latency. Since its advent in 2019, 5G has been viewed as a crucial technology for smart services such as smart cities and smart transportation. However, 5G telecommunication technology has a narrower band signal coverage, compared to 4G. Given that some applied services, such as smart transportation, have extremely high requirements for network latency, telecommunication companies must build a wide range of small base stations to meet the needs of edge computing.
YCTek, the world biggest micro heat pipe manufacturer, has reached a formal patent license agreement with NeoGene Tech to adopt PWS (Print Wick Structuring) approach and MagicWick-Inside Technology Platform. Adopting such patented technology along with domestically-made fully automated production lines, YCTek is able to deliver ultra-thin vapor chamber devices with thickness of under 0.25mm in mass production.
Electric vehicles (EV) have been regarded as the mainstream of next-gen automobiles. According to the statistics by DIGITIMES Research, with a global annual growth rate of 19% in 2020, electric vehicles will hit the tens-of-millions scale by 2025. Global environmental awareness and new emerging technologies are the two driving forces behind this rapid growth. When it comes to technology, electric vehicles' power management has been a major industry focus in recent years. Therefore, FTEX's GaNFET powertrain solution, which extends driving range by 30%, has become the center of attention.
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic rampaged the world. Many countries were on high alert and prohibited people from going outdoors freely. Such measures effectively controlled the virus, but it took a heavy toll on the economic development around the world. The retail and food services industry was one of the industries that borne the biggest brunt of the pandemic. CEO at DataVan, Kris Hsu, stated that although the restrictions imposed reduced in-store consumption revenue within the retail and food services industry, they also led to new business opportunities.
Fibocom, a leading global provider of IoT (Internet of Things) wireless solution and wireless communication modules, today announces the joint release of the FM350 5G wireless module. Partnered with Intel and MediaTek, Fibocom's FM350 is designed to offer high-speed 5G wireless connectivity for better PC platform support and user experience.
Patriot Memory, formerly PDP System, was created by three founders in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1985 more than 35 years ago. PDP System started with OEM services for critical computer components such as DRAM, and launched its own brand Patriot Memory in 2003. With extensive experience in OEM services, it quickly became a major DRAM brand. Patriot Memory has focused on computer memory products and launched product lines including memory cards, flash drives, and solid-state drives, and leveraged its brand advantages and steadfast channel development to expand in the global consumer market. Patriot Memory noted the rise and potential of esports and founded the subsidiary brand Viper Gaming in 2007. It is positioned as a new brand for esports products (esports keyboard, mouse, headphones, etc.) and high-end products (memory, SSD, and flash memory). Viper Gaming features a unique snake-head logo that is easily identifiable and set out to create new possibilities in the esports world.
In the post-pandemic era, many countries are still facing multiple challenges in production and manufacturing, including labor and material shortages, rise in labor costs, halts in production and manufacturing as anti-pandemic prevention measures, lags in supply chain procurement, among others. The current automated mechanical production lines can no longer keep up with the market's competition, forcing manufacturers to actively seek solutions to tackle the challenges of this ever-changing environment. Through the gradual popularization and development of 5G technology, the integration of edge computing, 5G, and AI will have the greatest impact in the digitization of smart factories. It will also become one of the growth drivers in the servers market.
Coretronic Corporation subsidiary - Coretronic MEMS Corporation (CMC) released a new Jupiter industrial equipment monitoring solution at 2020 SEMICON Taiwan Exhibition. The vibration sensor of this solution is developed by MEMS thin-film piezoelectric technology and has the advantages of small size, instrument-level precision, and anti-interference to temperature/stress. Combined with edge computing and AI algorithm, Jupiter solution can provide the early warning and predictive maintenance task of the production line.
Smart manufacturing has been the most important trend in the manufacturing industry in recent years. Compared to the focus on individual equipment efficiency in traditional production lines, smart manufacturing focuses more on overall solutions. However, JPC believes that industrial systems are not only complex because of multiple brands coexisting on the market, but also require much higher system stability than other industries. Therefore, when building industrial manufacturing systems, special attention must be paid to the compatibility between communication protocols of different brands and the quality of first-line equipment and components, so that the system can meet the needs of clients.
With the rise of the 5G smart manufacturing trend, the volume of equipment in factories is expanding and processes are continuously being refined, which has led to an increasing demand for power and more complex power system architecture. It is becoming more and more difficult for industrial customers to rely on a single power supplier to meet the diverse power supply needs of their factories in a stable manner, which may pose a potential problem for the progress of factory smartization.
In order to meet the need for increasingly powerful functions, many terminal devices have been designed with significantly increased product computing capacity and power consumption. Power supplies that serve the purpose of providing power must also increase power wattages to meet large power supply needs. However, must products with high-wattage requirements come with large-capacity power supplies? FSP thinking outside the box of conventional design, has developed adapters with high wattages and compact sizes, thereby meeting users' portability and space-saving needs.
