All you need to know about Samsung’s ISOCELL Sensors

What will the future generation of smartphones be like? It’s hard to know, but Samsung wants us to see where the shots will go, and it seems that the terrain of photography will be one of the strongholds of Samsung’s Galaxy family. Thus, the manufacturer just introduced to the ISOCELL world, the new CMOS sensor for smartphones in the house. Samsung announced a new ISOCELL sensor at the second MWX held this year in Shanghai, China. It has an “advanced pixel technology” that offers improved color even in deficient light conditions. This new sensor will reach the smartphones and tablets “premium” in the house, and its mass production will begin later this year. ISOCELL manages to improve the current BSI sensors “by incorporating a physical barrier between the pixels” so that more photons are obtained and thus improve the quality of the image. These improvements allow the dynamic range of…

The Importance of Durable Tools in Aviation Manufacturing

Air travel has been a revolutionary development in human technology. The ability to travel rapidly across the world has changed the way we look at commerce, recreation, health, and government. The planes we use for these thousands of trips are amazing feats of engineering, combining everything from hydraulics to electronics into a seamless and incredibly safe machine. Perhaps the only thing more impressive than the planes themselves are the machines used to build them. Aeronautics manufacturers utilize some of the most precise and hard-working machines in the world, built from innovative materials and some of the most advanced electronics in use today. Those machines create vehicles that will transport thousands of lives every day, so it’s essential that they remain in top performing condition.

Airbus and the Realization of Bionic Design

Five years ago, no one could have predicted the impact that slime mold would have on the air travel industry. This was when the idea for a bionic-design partition for the Airbus first came to the forefront. Engineering designers at Airbus took advantage of 3D printing and generative design software to create the bionic partition for its Concept Cabin. The partition is the only thing that separates passengers from the flight crew. Airbus’ new lightweight design allows greater access for emergency personnel to bring in stretchers. The ability to neatly tuck the partition out of the way means that medics can get sick or injured people off the plane in a hurry. At a weight of 66 pounds, the partition serves as a fold-down chair for the flight crew during take-offs and landings. As impressive as all of this is, what has truly caught the attention of the flying public…

8 Reasons Why EVs are the Future of Transportation

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are quickly becoming a leader in the automotive industry. With increasing concerns about pollution levels worldwide, and the rise and fall of gas prices, taking a greener approach to our transportation is the clear solution. If you’re intrigued by an ultra low cost, low emissions answer to our gas-guzzling vehicles, you’ll want to check out the below infographic created by Auto Loan Solutions. This informative and interesting infographic demonstrates the revolution of EVs, and how this evolved from a trend to a reality. This infographic proves that concerns about the reliability or power of these vehicles have no basis. By 2040, EVs will make up 35% of new car sales. As well, EV charging stations are becoming as readily available as gas stations – currently surpassing that of gas stations in Japan.

When there is (not) enough of screen resolution on your device?

We are facing lots of screens and displays today starting with computer monitors, TVs and smart phones and ending with more sophisticated virtual reality (VR) displays like Oculus Rift. Most of them already use high resolution displays. For instance, Ultra HD 4k displays are becoming more and more available. But what does this mean and is this enough or too much? There are many tests and debates running about proper screen resolution when you have good picture quality and not wasting money for numbers only. This is not what are we are going to discuss. Everyone has to find their own optimal solution. Why not to do this rationally instead of chasing numbers. Fig. 1 Screen door effect From practical side, resolution alone doesn’t have significant meaning when choosing screen. You could take other two parameters in account – distance from screen and screen size. All those parameters goes along…

Capacitors Embracing the Green Revolution

One of the pressing concerns of our age is environmental crisis. With the progressing technological evolution, the need for energy conservation and harvesting has increased. Harvesting energy is not an easy task, and most of the time, generating energy creates pollution in the environment. To deal with it, the international community has changed its approach so that it is now focused on identifying the areas where energy is being wasted and rectifying those issues instead of producing more energy. The low power factor is one of those aforementioned issues. Power factor is a measure of lag in current with respect to voltage. Its value varies from zero to one.  This lag creates a component of electrical power that is not being used and keeps oscillating between generation and consumer ends. This circulation of power dissipates energy in the form of heat and also creates extra load on the generation end.…
