Driving LEDs for High-Power Machine-Vision Flash

>> Electronic Design Resources.. >> Library: Article Series.. .. >> Topic: Power Management .. .. .. >> Series: Driving LED Designs Machine-vision systems use very short flashes of intense light to produce high-speed images employed in a wide variety of data-processing applications. For instance, fast-moving conveyor belts are run through machine-vision systems for quick label and defect inspections. IR and laser LED flashes are commonly used for proximity- and motion-sensing machine vision. Security systems send out high–speed, hard-to-detect LED flashes…

Dataflow Processor Serves Up High-End Low Latency

What you’ll learn: Key distinctions between NOR flash and NAND flash. How NOR flash and NAND flash can be deployed in automotive clusters and ADAS applications. The tradeoffs among flash memory density, performance, and cost.   The rapid evolution of cluster and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) in automotive applications has led to corresponding changes—and advances—in memory technology. Rather than simply supporting a few dials and indicators, today’s clusters employ complex user interfaces that utilize a wide variety of memory-intensive technologies,…

Data Quality at Airbnb. Part 2 — A New Gold Standard | by Vaughn Quoss | Airbnb Engineering & Data Science | Nov, 2020

This certification process is followed on a project-by-project basis for individual data models, which comprise a set of data tables and metrics that correspond to a specific business concept or project feature. Example data models at Airbnb cover subjects such as Active Listings, Customer Service Tickets, and Guest Growth Accounting. While there is no perfect set of criteria to define the boundaries of a given data model, aggregating our data tables, pipelines, and metrics at this level of abstraction allows…

Miniscule robots of metal and plastic may revolutionize the field of medicine

Nature Communications 2020 Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a technique for manufacturing micrometer-long machines by interlocking multiple materials in a complex way. Such microrobots will one day revolutionize the field of medicine. Robots so tiny that they can maneuver through our blood vessels and deliver medications to certain points in the body—researchers have been…

Strengthening homes against earthquakes

Credit: Eindhoven University of Technology Ph.D. candidate Ömer Türkmen, at the TU/e Department of the Built Environment, did extensive testing on a new way of strengthening masonry walls that is cost effective, minimally invasive, easy to install and a great improvement to the seismic resistance of existing buildings. With the resulting insights and practical experience, Türkmen and associates hope to make a significant contribution to the building strengthening efforts in Groningen, The Netherlands. Türkmen successfully defended his thesis on 17…

Optimizing complex modeling processes through machine learning technologies

Dr. Zohaib Hasnain is applying high-functioning artificial intelligence to physics-based processes in an effort to “automate” modeling. Credit: Texas A&M Engineering Engineering a spaceship is as difficult as it sounds. Modeling plays a large role in the time and effort it takes to create spaceships and other complex engineering systems. It requires extensive physics calculations, sifting through a multitude of different models and tribal knowledge to determine singular parts of a system’s design. Dr. Zohaib Hasnain’s research shows that data-driven…

PEDSnet report details how COVID-19 pandemic has affected children — ScienceDaily

In the most comprehensive analysis to date of U.S. children tested and treated for COVID-19, an organization representing seven of the nation’s largest pediatric medical centers reports that some groups of children are faring significantly worse than children in general during the pandemic. Findings from the PEDSnet organization — which includes Cincinnati Children’s — were published Nov. 23, 2020, in JAMA Pediatrics. The report is based on electronic medical records data from more than 135,000 children who have been tested…

Flight tests to show B61-12 will work on Air Force’s newest fighter jet

An F-35A Lightning II opens its bomb bay doors and drops a mock B61-12 at Sandia National Laboratories’ Tonopah Test Range. Credit: Sandia National Laboratories A mock B61-12’s strike in the dusty Nevada desert successfully completed the first in a series of flight tests with the U.S. Air Force’s newest fighter jet, demonstrating the bomb’s first release from an internal bomb bay at greater than the speed of sound. The flight test of the B61-12 with the F-35A Lightning II…

Starting in 2022, All New Hyundai Models Will Feature DRIVE IVI Platform

Korean carmaker Hyundai, together with its sister brands Kia and Genesis, plans to install in-vehicle infotainment in its cars based on Nvidia’s DRIVE computer platform. The automotive group is thus laying the foundation for a centralized system that’s networked, updatable, and software-defined at all times. The move will enable the group’s next-generation vehicles to combine audio, video, navigation, connectivity and artificial-intelligence (AI)-based “connected car” services. Hyundai Motor Group has been working with Nvidia since 2015, and the Nvidia DRIVE platform…
