ATP Introduces advancedMLC (aMLC) Technology at Flash Memory Summit 2014

Posted on 29 July 2014

















TAIPEI, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — ATP, the leading manufacturer of embedded Flash and ruggedized SSD and DRAM modules, introduces its latest technology, advancedMLC, also known as “aMLC”.  Developed by ATP,  aMLC is an advanced firmware technology uniquely implemented onto ATP’s NAND Flash products to vastly improve the endurance and performance of these storage devices while using mainstream MLC NAND to provide the best cost effective solution for any read/write intensive applications. ATP will showcase this technology and related products at the Flash Memory Summit 2014 from August 5 to 7 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, booth# 516.

Endurance and performance are the two critical factors for a NAND Flash storage device to meet the demanding industrial operating requirements. However, system and product designers often have to make compromises to fulfill the necessary criteria due to the inherent high cost of SLC NAND Flash components. To address this requirement, ATP introduces aMLC technology by implementing its unique firmware to manipulate four states of MLC into two states, which dramatically widens the disturbance margins among NAND Flash cells. In addition, aMLC can provide more than 13x (40K P/E) higher endurance than traditional MLC NAND, with write performance close to SLC. As such, aMLC is best suited for any write intensive application requiring competitive Drive-Write-Per-Day over Cost (DWPD/Cost).

To learn more about ATP aMLC technology and its latest NAND Flash reliability solutions, ATP will deliver a presentation session on “Innovative Reliability NAND Flash Solution Selection and Configuration”, on Thursday, August 7th, from 2:40-3:55PM at the Flash Memory Summit conference.

The ATP initial aMLC product lines include mSATA, SlimSATA, and 2.5″ SSD, with others to follow. For further details contact your local ATP representatives, or email [email protected]

Frost & Sullivan: Falling Budgets Stimulate Investment in Efficient Security Technologies for Critical National Infrastructure in the UK

Posted on 29 July 2014





















LONDON, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Continued, high threat perception in the critical national infrastructure (CNI) security market in the United Kingdom is driving increased investments in infrastructure security within the country. Protection of assets remains a top priority for the government, with sustained effort and planning to ensure the continuity of critical services throughout the country.

New research from Frost & Sullivan, titled Analysis of the United Kingdom Critical National Infrastructure Security Market, finds that the market earned revenues of £2.43 billion in 2013 and estimates this will reach £3.10 billion in 2019. The study covers security for the border and maritime, energy, mass transport, water, government, C4i (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence) first responder, and cyber segments.

“The implementation of numerous infrastructure development plans across all critical infrastructure sectors in the coming years will up the demand for robust security measures in the UK,” said Frost & Sullivan Aerospace and Defence Research Analyst Katherine Evans. “Mass transport and energy, in particular, will require significant upgrades to security systems as cyber threats become more sophisticated.”

Despite commitments to bolster the country’s critical infrastructure, continued public spending cuts have reduced the funds available for the government and CNI operators to improve current services and facilities. This has had an impact on all CNI sectors, especially those that rely entirely on government budgets such as border control and first responders. Restricted funding will force end users to turn to technology to increase efficiency and to ensure the standards of protection and service delivery remain high.

End users with budget constraints will look for the most cost-effective security partnerships and endeavour to keep costs to a minimum by bargaining hard, thus spurring market competition. Intensifying competition will affect potential margins for security providers as they have to look to reduce prices to win projects and retain customers in times of financial uncertainty.

“Integrated security systems will become popular as they can drive down the price of security systems due to the fact that they are interoperable and come from the same supplier,” noted Evans. “Fully integrated intelligence and security solutions are preferred to increase situational awareness and end user ability to mitigate and respond to threats.”

Frost & Sullivan Commends Steinbichler Optotechnik for Striking a Balance between Price and Performance in the Optical Scanner Market

Posted on 29 July 2014





















LONDON, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – Based on its recent analysis of the optical digitizer and scanners market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Price/Performance Value Leadership. Steinbichler Optotechnik has reaffirmed its ability to deliver high-precision scanners by developing the COMET 5, COMET 6, COMET L3D, and T-SCAN CS.

“Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH is among the top four companies in the world, dominating the global optical digitizer and scanners market with more than 20 percent market share,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Aravind Govindan. “It has achieved this success by offering a portfolio of solutions that treads a fine balance between cost effectiveness and technological sophistication.”

Steinbichler’s COMET 5 was regarded as one of the best optical scanners in the market, but it was also considered prohibitively priced by several prospective buyers. Within five months, the company manufactured a new product that was lighter, smaller, easier to use, faster to set up and more affordable but had the same quality and accuracy of the COMET 5. The product was named COMET L3D and was available at almost half the price of the original COMET 5.

Both variants of the COMET L3D are based on LED lighting technology, which offers a longer shelf life; the COMET L3D 2M and COMET L3D 5M cameras have resolutions of 1600 x 1200p and 2448 x 2050p and measuring times of 1.5 and 2.0 seconds, respectively. Both these products are well suited to the measurement of small- and medium-sized plastic or metal parts. The noncontact measurement technology of the COMET L3D sensor allows end users to measure delicate and fragile objects that are challenging to measure using conventional technologies.

Meanwhile, Steinbichler has been marketing the T-SCAN CS as a value-for-money product with a tracking camera, hand-held scanner, and touch probe. Integration of all these components provides it with a high level of flexibility for a wide range of applications such as reverse engineering, sheet metal parts, and other production inspection.

Another noteworthy product is the COMET 6 16 M, a high-resolution, 16-megapixel camera that provides an extremely high level of detail. The operator can choose between maximum resolution and a maximum image capturing speed of 1.2 seconds at any time, thereby attaining ideal performance for the respective measurements.

Steinbichler is also helping automotive manufacturers rapidly transform their manufacturing processes by offering them 100 percent automated metrology solutions. Apart from reducing human interference, this helps end users minimise errors and achieve higher productivity. This also assists end users in developing high-quality products, leading to wastage reduction and streamlining production processes.

In March 2014, Steinbichler Optotechnik launched the T-SCAN LV, which is capable of inspecting objects of larger volume than any other product, using optical inspection. The product also facilitates precise 3-D data collection for most industrial application areas, particularly for large-scale objects. Its dynamic referencing functionality further helps end users obtain precise measurement points even while moving objects in an unstable environment.

Steinbichler has developed an innovative scanner that efficiently addresses the needs of other dimensional metrology manufacturers such as Hexagon Metrology and Automated Precision Inc. (API). While Hexagon Metrology provides Steinbichler’s PROBEscanner for T-Probe users, API and Steinbichler together launched the Smart Scan software. This solution combines cutting-edge solutions from API and Steinbichler Vision Systems to create high-resolution 3-D point clouds without a need for multiple setups or triangulation targets.

“Additionally, Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH is an ISO 9001 certified company, and has a rigorous customer feedback mechanism in place,” noted Govindan. “A stringent review process of the date and time of a service lead and the turnaround time for each task has enabled the company to reduce its response time as well as improve its installation time, giving it a distinct competitive advantage.”

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has developed a product to suit the market and client needs. The award lauds the price competitiveness, features, ease of use of the product as well as the service effectiveness of the recipient company.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

TSM Corporation and Galileo Group, Inc. Initiate Kenya and East Africa Operations

Posted on 28 July 2014









ORLANDO, Fla., July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – TSM Corporation and Galileo Group, Inc. announced today that they are initiating operations in Kenya and East Africa to provide advanced airborne remote sensing services and completed all-digital informatics products to regional, commercial, and government customers.  Initial focus is on providing hyperspectral imaging for agricultural planning; oil, gas, and minerals detection for exploration; and infrastructure development programs. The information contained in the hyperspectral data contains spectra signatures and key markers used by computer systems to identify specialized targets of interest and trends. The hyperspectral data can also play a key role in monitoring environmental changes and trends.

Hyperspectral imaging is an advanced remote sensing technology typically deployed from aircraft much like a mapping camera, to capture naturally occurring imaging spectra at high spatial and spectral resolution. The high volume data sets are processed and analyzed on the ground to filter, highlight and outline specific targets of interest using advanced targeting algorithms and complex signature libraries. Completed information can then be fused or overlaid by planners to augment other types of mapping and data sets to provide a more comprehensive picture for agriculture, oil, gas, and mineral mapping, and infrastructure planning applications.

Overall project management will be led by TSM.  Galileo Group, utilizing their sensors and systems integrated with local aircraft, will conduct scientific analysis of the hyperspectral data.  To the degree possible, regional researchers and graduate students are planned to assist with longer term airborne and ground collection efforts. All of the data will be stored, processed and analyzed at Galileo Group’s primary operations facility in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, where the raw data and finished results will be made available via a cloud-based dissemination system.

TSM Corporation has aggressively entered the African market, establishing a foothold in East Africa. Ron Roughead, TSM’s Director for International Programs, Africa stated, “Kenya was chosen as our point of entry because of its centrality, its forward-looking vision, and its status as a financial hub for East Africa. With carefully selected Kenyan and U.S. partners, we have created the ability to provide insights and hard data that political leaders, corporate leaders, and individual citizens can use in decision making, policy execution, and business planning all to the benefit of local populations.  We know that to accelerate innovation and growth we have to expand the availability and the use of timely and accurate data. Galileo Group, Inc. is a critical part of our effort. We recognize there are linkages among varied political, social, and economic interest groups, and these interests can create cross-functional projects spanning seemingly isolated business sectors from agriculture, health, and development, to security, oil, and gas. We know data matters and the volume, accuracy, and ease of access to data is dependent on technology. With our strategically allied partners, we make tailored data and processes and useful knowledge immediately available to our customers.”

“We are providing a quantum leap in cutting edge informatics services and capabilities in the region,” said Michael Barnes, Galileo Group CEO.  “Our approach is different. We take the hard part, the vast data sets, the signature libraries, the algorithms we have developed, all the key raw data that transforms to understandable and actionable information sets on a large scale. We then present and integrate finished results in a manner with existing GIS and database systems so that African regional users and customers may use and interact with the finished all-digital data at new levels of detail. Our goal is simple: Maintain a physical presence in-country for mission and sensor operations while establishing and providing access to our virtual collaborative network or simply delivering completed detection reports for commercial customers. There is a vast amount of information that can be made available using current 21st century level computational technologies to map, render, and apply advanced mathematical visualization models that have practical use across these sectors. We will include local talent in our mission operations while growing and fostering regional technical capability for the long haul. As an adjunct to our commercial revenue goals, we also plan to donate environmental data sets to regional universities and interested researchers to help understand and manage the impact of global warming effects and long term change on the environment and agriculture. Managing this sort of large scale but detailed information from these various sensor modalities, comprehensively balancing nature, resources and infrastructure, is key to empowerment in an increasingly resource-challenged world. East Africa represents an ideal opportunity to apply that concept to the benefit of the people and customers involved.”

About TSM Corporation (www.tsmcorporation.com)
At TSM Corporation we approach every client with our reputation for credibility, trust, and competence.  Since 1978, TSM has provided the government sector and private industry with unparalleled logistics, engineering, training, and technical systems support.  With our past experience, collaborative expertise, and East Africa’s private sector prospects TSM has optimized the fusion of opportunity and growth.  Our motivations are simple:

  • Provide growth by unlocking the true value of African markets.
  • Participate in projects that have real and positive impact on people and communities through strong partnerships with Africans.
  • Assist political and business leaders with policy decisions through access to better data and knowledge.
  • Establish TSM as a competitive player as Africa forms its foundation to build global markets and political influences.

All statements contained herein that are not clearly historical in nature are forward-looking and the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “estimate,” “plan,” and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. We have no intention and are under no obligation to update or alter (and expressly disclaim any such intention or obligation to do so) our forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent required by law. The forward-looking statements in this release include statements addressing our future financial condition and operating results. Examples of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements include, among others, business, economic, competitive and regulatory risks, such as conditions affecting demand for products, particularly in the automotive industry and the telecommunications networks and consumer devices industries; competition and pricing pressure; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and commodity prices; natural disasters and political, economic and military instability in countries in which we operate; developments in the credit markets; future goodwill impairment; compliance with current and future environmental and other laws and regulations; the possible effects on us of changes in tax laws, tax treaties and other legislation; the risk that the acquisition of Measurement Specialties, Inc. (“MEAS”) may not be consummated; the risk that a regulatory approval that may be required for the MEAS acquisition is not obtained or is obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; the risk that revenue opportunities, cost savings and other anticipated synergies from the MEAS acquisition may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected; and the risk that MEAS’ operations will not be successfully integrated into ours.
