Cellphone subscriptions to exceed population in 2015

IC Insights’ 2015 IC Market Drivers Report will be released later this month. The report contains analyses on the IoT, tablet PCs, smartphones, automotive electronics, medical and health systems, wireless networking and many other fast growing electronic systems. One of the most widely reported metrics concerning the cellphone marketplace is the subscriber base, defined as the number of cellular service subscriptions that exist at a given point in time. In 2015, the worldwide population is expected to reach 7.4bn while the number of cellphone subscriptions is forecast to be slightly over 7.5bn (Figure 1), marking the first time cellphone subscriptions will exceed the worldwide population.

EEG home monitoring breakthrough unveiled in Washington

EEG home monitoring breakthrough unveiled in Washington
The nanoelectronics research center imec and Holst Centre are presenting their next-generation wirelesselectroencephalography (EEG) headset to achieve increased EEG data quality at Neuroscience 2014 in Washington, D.C. (Nov 15-19). The headset combines dry electrodes with integrated skin-to-electrode impedance monitoring to provide information about the contact quality throughout the entire EEG recording. Unique signal processing is integrated to cancel out motion artefacts.

Critical industries drive intelligent MCC market

The increasing level of industrial automation is fuelling the global demand for (MCC) Motor Control Centres. A MCC is an assembly of motor starters or overload protection devices such as contractors and/or overload relays that are connected by a common power bus bar so as to control several motors. Intelligent MCCs (iMCCs) – with remote diagnostic capabilities as well as features such as loss detection and predictive maintenance – are gaining traction especially in the oil and gas, mining, water and wastewater, and chemicals industries due to its ability to minimise maintenance costs, reduce equipment downtime, and ensure operator safety.

GaN Systems offers its devices for $1m Little Box Challenge

GaN Systems offers its devices for $1m Little Box Challenge
GaN Systems is offering its devices to contestants entering the Little Box Challenge launched by Google and the IEEE. This is an open competition with a $1m prize for the team who can build the smallest, highest power density kW-scale inverter – at least 50W per cubic inch. Size-wise, the goal for competitors is to shrink an inverter from the size of a picnic cooler down to something smaller than a laptop computer.

Sound system regularises TV volume

Sound system regularises TV volume
A University of Southampton researcher has developed a loudspeaker system to help people with hearing problems listen to television without affecting the sound for other viewers. Marcos Simón, a PhD researcher from the University’s Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, has devised a highly-directional system of acoustical radiators, commonly known as loudspeaker arrays.
