New analysis from Juniper Research found that Coronavirus could cause around a $42 billion revenue gap over the next 9 months for smart device vendors. The analysis examined a number of key device verticals including smartphones, tablets, consumer robotics, smart speakers and smart wearables. Three impact scenarios, low, medium and high, illustrate a range of possible outcomes.
The recent surge of the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) and its anticipated negative impact on the global economy and IC market definitely fits the definition of a Black Swan event.
CyberOptics Corporation® (Nasdaq: CYBE), a leading global developer and manufacturer of high precision 3D sensing technology solutions, today announced that it has received orders valued at approximately $2.8 million for its 2D MX600™ system for post-singulation inspection of memory modules. CyberOptics presently anticipates that these orders will become revenue in the third quarter of 2020.
Plessey, an embedded technologies developer at the forefront of microLED technology for augmented and mixed reality (AR/MR) display applications, has added passive matrix microLED displays to its Data-Vµ product family.
SEMI announced today that it is postponing SEMICON Southeast Asia 2020, the region’s premier event for…
A group of scientists from the RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science in Japan have succeeded in taking repeated measurements of the spin of an electron in a silicon quantum dot (QD), without changing the spin in the process. This type of “non-demolition” measurement is important for creating quantum computers that are fault tolerant.
Recognizing innovations and other outstanding accomplishments in Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE), SEMI-FlexTech, a SEMI Strategic Association Partner, yesterday presented the 2020 FLEXI Awards at the 19th annual FLEX 2020 Conference and Exhibition in San Jose, California. The FLEXI Awards spotlight FHE contributions in five categories: R&D Achievement, Product Innovation and Commercialization, Technology & Education in Leadership, Technology Champion and Industry Leadership.
Silvaco, Inc., a leading global provider of software, IP, and services to semiconductor companies for the design of ICs, flat panel displays, and electronic systems, today announced the appointment of Howard Hideshima as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
Compound Photonics US Corporation (CP), a leading provider of compact high-resolution microdisplay solutions for Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) applications, and Plessey Semiconductors Ltd. (Plessey), an embedded technologies developer at the forefront of microLED technology for AR and MR display applications, today announced they have produced the first fully addressable microLED display modules resulting from their previously announced strategic partnership to develop and introduce GaN-on-Silicon microLED based microdisplay solutions for AR/MR applications.
Scientists from Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU, Vladivostok, Russia), together with colleagues from FEB RAS, China, Hong Kong, and Australia, manufactured ultra-compact bright sources based on IR-emitting mercury telluride (HgTe) quantum dots (QDs), the future functional elements of quantum computers and advanced sensors. A related article is published in “Light: Science and Applications”. FEFU scientists, together with colleagues from the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and foreign experts, designed a resonant lattice laser printed on a surface of thin gold film that allows to control the near- and mid-IR radiation properties of capping layer of mercury telluride (HgTe) QDs.
