intel-undergoes-crises

Intel has been experiencing unwanted malfunctions reaching out for help to other companies specializing in hardware and software. Having requested that companies place a halt to the distribution of their version of the cure, to the newly found security flaw, that Intel has been experiencing known as the “Meltdown.”

Shortly after discovering what the problem causing the “ Meltdown” was, Intel released updates known as patches to solve the arising problem. Subsequently, Intel receives notice from users that the patch was causing many systems to perform unwanted reboots and only work as intended on the fourth (Haswell) and fifth-generation (Broadwell) processors.

Intel is still not completely certain onto how to fully solve the problem but may have a few suggestions:

  • Wait for Intel to produce another version.
    • If a user already made a change they could go back to their previous release.
      • Window 10 users can “rewind to previous restore point"
        • For motherboards, Intel recommends to “flash it with older, stable firmware”
          • Intel also recommends waiting till the reboots pass to avoid any further complications.

smallest-sensor-device
Well known information technology equipment company, Fujitsu, has created a mini sensor that is powered by a solar cell. This miniature sensor will help aid LPWA wireless transmission. This newly introduced device measures at 82x24x6mm, and the company boasts that this is the smallest sensor device that supports LPWA in the world.

Conveniently, the sensor does not require replacement batteries. Data for both humidity and temperature that is collected by the sensor is able to be transmitted to a Sigfox base station that is as far as 7 km away.

LPWA in recent days has been in the spotlight due to it being a wireless technology that is able to directly transmit data to the cloud while consuming low power across wide areas. Fujitsu has been able to create power control technology that is able to command the timing of LPWA signal transmissions in real time. This controlling is based on temperature data that has been collected by the temperature sensor.

This milestone in technology will allow for signal transmissions to be carried out only when activation voltage, which may change with temperature, is boosted, which will help to prevent the voltage from falling under the minimum operating voltage for the LPWA module.

With this efficiency in power, it is possible to allow variation in power utilized by the wireless circuit or power created by solar cells because of temperature. This will remove the need for any excess energy storage elements that were in the past required to react to power variation, allowing for the miniaturization of the sensor device with the smallest power storage elements needed.

The data that is collected can be seen through Fujitsu’s Cloud Service K5 loT Platform, which is Fujitsu’s loT platform service for data utilization. The platform has received Sigfox Ready Program for loT PaaS certification as a platform that can connect to the Sigfox cloud. This ensures that the sensor data is easily obtained in the cloud simply by setting the sensor devices. This will allow for maintenance-free installation and management of the loT systems, which will speed up the procedure of digitalization.

As a Fujitsu sensor parts supplier, as well as an IT parts supplier in general, ASAP IT Technology has a goal of providing out-of-the-box parts procurement solutions. ASAP-IT Technology seeks to help in the purchasing of information technology hardware, with an emphasis on networking and telecommunications equipment.

sony image sensor
Sony, an electronics company that produces a variety of products, just announced its plans for global sensor domination. Five years ago, Sony was struggling to keep afloat, with loses totaling more than two billion dollars. Since this drop, Sony has decided to focus its efforts on mainly three things: image sensors, mobile, and games. The focus shift was an extremely intelligent choice by Sony because it shot their annual revenue back up. Sony reported that their first quarter profit from this year was the best quarter profit they have ever seen. Overall, sales have grown about 15%.

Most of the company’s revenue is coming from photographic image sensors, something the company has invested over four billion dollars into. The latest profit results are fantastic news for them, especially after the massive earthquakes japan suffered last year. These earthquakes with a magnitude of 7.0 destroyed Sony’s sensor production facilities, and rebuilding them was a massive hit to revenue. Sony attributes its revenue growth in the ability to quickly restore these centers and getting product back out. Now, Sony controls around 50% of the entire world market for image sensors which has gone up by 10% in the last two years. Sony’s biggest product to date is its dual-camera smartphones. Smartphones are used all around the globe, making this a huge outlet for Sony. The company is particularly targeting the ever-growing Chinese market.

Although this market is huge Sony has decided to play it safe and make annual image sensor sales a small percentage of overalls sales because Chinese phone manufactures are trying to make a shift toward cheaper phone parts, to lower the overall cost of phones. Sony is on track to post its best annual profits for the next two decades, a huge benefit for shareholders. Sony hardware parts are right way to go when looking for electronic components.

microsoft surface
Microsoft announced its launching of a brand-new program, that will be by subscription. This program is for surface computers and tablets, and can be purchased the same way that people purchase cell phones. This includes, no interest financing for exactly two years and the ability to upgrade to a new device before the term period is over. This launch came out just in time for back to school season, since students and schools would be the main target for this specific program. The start of this problem is a all part of a bigger plan by Microsoft to gain new movement in schools within the united states.

Apparently, most of the schools that do have computers have a majority of google chromebooks and not Microsoft and Apple, a problem that Microsoft is trying to solve. The new program is called surface plus and it is available for purchase through the Microsoft Store in person and online. The computer options for this program include the surface pro, the laptop, surface book and surface studio. This program will allow customer to trade in their old machine for a new machine after 18 months but, only if the Microsoft hardware is in good condition upon return. The push for this program adopt is since Microsoft has had a decline on its hardware for the past three quarters.

The company’s revenue has also fallen 2% in the last quarter because of the decline in sales. Along with surface plus for students, Microsoft is also introducing a surface plus for the business world. This option offers multiple machines under one signed contract, and includes the option to finance a 55-inch surface hub. However, this deal does come with a flaw, an interest rate of 19.99% happens after two years. Microsoft surface hardware is increasing in creativity.

Another great thing to come out of this announcement is that Nvidia is promising a new driver set that will add full Mac support for the entire Pascal product lines. Anyone with a 10-series Nvidia GPU should be able to use that GPU in their Mac, with no problem. Unless the customers have a very old Mac.

They haven’t stated if these drivers are limited to Mac Pros that support macOS Sierra (10.12) or not. Only the mid-2010 and mid-2012 Mac Pros were updated officially for Sierra. Xeon workstations from 2008 and 2009 can be unofficially upgraded to Sierra. Nvidia could also be suggesting that it expects to take AMD’s slice of the Apple market when Apple refreshes the Mac Pro. Apple has relied on AMD GPU silicon for a number of years, but that could change if Team Green offered them a better deal.
