Link by link, China crafts its industry An ultra-modern IC design center here is slated to become a hub of creativity, one of several sources that will seed China's domestic design firms. Today, the background noise of construction, and the empty fields and offices nearby, serve as a reminder that there is much work to be done. Defense contractor Curtiss-Wright Corp. (Roseland, N.J.) has strengthened its electronics lineup picking up boards maker Dy4 Systems, Inc. (Kanata, Ontario) and communications products manufacturer Systran Corp. (Dayton, Ohio). The two acquisitions, made on Tuesday and Wednesday (Dec. 2,3), will add to a component portfolio that now includes graphics boards, high-speed interconnects, networking cards, and I/O products, as well as Pentium- and PowerPC-based CPU boards. Canon, Toshiba seed venture for SED flat TVs Canon Corp. and Toshiba Corp. are finalizing preparations for providing flat-panel televisions based on surface-conduction electron-emitter display (SED) technology. The two companies intend to demonstate prototypes at the Winter Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. EDA startup pioneers assertion-based synthesis Startup Bluespec Inc. will preview an "assertion-based" synthesis technology next week that it describes as a new approach to chip design. The tool set takes high-level SystemVerilog descriptions
Ceramic sheets and boards are stock shapes available as solid plates, slabs, and substrates. The board or plate may consist of a ceramic fiberboard product, a dense sintered ceramic plate, or a precast cement bonded slab.
Digital signal processor (DSP) computer boards are central to the implementation of high-performance industrial systems. They collect and process digital data from many sources, and distribute the results to other elements of the system.
High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) cables are assemblies of audio and video cables that are used to transmit digital audio/video signals. They are used to connect digital devices such as set-top boxes, personal computers, and camcorders to compatible computer monitors, video projectors, and digital televisions. HDMI uses a single cable for the transmission of uncompressed digital data and implements the EIA/CEA-861 standards.
