Taiwan makers all set for mini LED

Taiwan-based LED firms, in view of tight supply of AMOLED smartphone panels and increasing competition in the LED backlighting segment from China-based makers, are ready adopt mini LEDs for TV and smartphone backlighting applications and fine pixel pitch displays, according to industry sources. With sizes of about 100 micrometers, mini LED chip poduction does not need mass transfer, a technological bottleneck for micro LEDs, the sources said. To cope with tight supply of AMOLED panels, Android smartphone vendors, especially China-based ones, are looking to adopt mini LEDs for backlighting to boost competitiveness against AMOLED-equipped devices, the sources noted.

Apple plans on selling lower priced models with iPhone X features

According to a report published in China, Apple will be using some of the technology found in this year's Apple iPhone X on next year's models that are rumored to have code names of Lisbon and Hangzhou. The report says that Apple is concerned about its market share in China, and believes that by offering many iPhone X features in a lower priced phone, it can help it recapture market share in the country. Another website in Japan, Macotakara, expects the lower-end model would get a 10,000 yen ($90 USD) hair cut from this year's pricing. Next year's phones are all expected to include an OLED display, and the TrueDepth Camera. Face ID will also replace Touch ID on all 2018 Phone models next year.

Intel and Amazon partner on voice recognition tech

Intel and Amazon are partnering to combine the former's silicon and smarts with the latter's Alexa voice platform. The chipmaker has introduced the Intel Speech Enabling Developer Kit to provide a "complete audio front-end solution for far-field voice control". The idea is that Intel has done the hard work of designing the mic arrays and voice systems and that all developers will need to do is write applications for them. It offers algorithms for echo cancellation and beam forming, wake words, an 8-mic array and the company's dual digital signal processor. The development kit is up for pre-order starting today for $399. And while that might be a little too expensive for a hobbyist developer, it isn't exorbitantly priced like some game console development kits.

STMicroelectronics reveals compact contactless module with boostedNFC technology

STMicroelectronics is delivering the technology for easy and secure contactless transactions using the ever more popular wristbands or fashionwear like watches or jewelry. The market-unique ST53G System-in-Package solution combines the Company’s industry-leading expertise in Near Field Communication and secure-transaction chips. As consumers become increasingly comfortable with making secure transactions using their smart devices, traditional card manufacturers want to extend their offers into contactless wearable products for uses such as payments, ticketing, and access control. These can be difficult to implement within tight size and cost constraints, because conventional separate NFC-radio and security chips demand extra space and complicate design.

Global AR/VR HMD device shipments to grow at 41.6% CAGR

Global shipments of AR/VR head-mounted display devices, including standalone models, are expected to grow by a CAGR of 41.6% during the period from 2017 to 2022, Digitimes Research estimates. While sales of more advanced AR/VR devices are key to whether the market scale can further expand, standalone VR HMD devices are expected to serve as a growth driver for the industry in 2018-2019. In the long term, Digitimes Research believes, Apple is likely to lead the market with its forthcoming AR HMD devices. In 2017, while shipments of PC-controlled/connected VR products have improved significantly thanks to price cuts by vendors, sales of smartphone-powered VR devices have not gone up along with the volume shipments of smartphones but rather suffered a slight decline instead.
