    In 2010, the bluetooth special interest group published their Core Specification 4.0, including Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) technology, or Bluetooth Smart. This short-range radio breaks technical ground: it can run for years on batteries or scavenged power. It is a leading candidate to connect the "Internet of Things." This was updated to Core Specification v4.1 in late 2013 [1]. For more details, including reasons for decisions, see Bluetooth Low Energy, The Developers Handbook [2]. View full abstract»

  • Wide Dynamic Range Technologies: For mobile imaging sensor systems.

    Page(s): 30 - 35
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1650 KB)  

    This article presents several wide dynamic range (WDR) technologies for CMOS image sensors. In photography, dynamic range is the range between the maximum and minimum measurable light intensities. The varying degree of light intensity depends on the device that is used as a capture device, which decides the overall performance of a dynamic range of an imaging sensor. WDR technology increases the dynamic range of an imaging sensor by physically improving a pixel performance or digitally applying multiple exposure times for each pixel. This enables users to easily take a picture in case of a backlit, indoor, or tunnel scene, all of which contain mixed high- and low-light conditions. We will review WDR technologies and describe our efforts on a mobile imaging sensor system considering pixel technology and digital technology supporting the performance of a WDR imaging sensor.

  • The Innovations and Inventions of Steve Jobs [IP Corner]

    Much of the world of patents is shrouded in layers of legal mysticism, semantic nuances, and subtle complexities. Those of you who are regular readers of "IP Corner" will know that I often try to explain the principles of the patenting process using real-world examples and case studies. I feel that this is probably the most useful approach to explain the many shades of gray of this world to engineers. Normally I focus on a particular aspect of patents and the patenting process and explore it through a series of examples. However, for this issue, I thought it might be interesting to take a different approach-why not explore a selection of the innovations of a well-known inventor to gain a different perspective and provide insight into the art and business of patenting your own inventions? And there is no better candidate for our first study than the man who founded and later rebuilt the most successful consumer electronics company of the 21st century-Steve Jobs. View full abstract»

    Tablet computer shipments exceeded PC shipments in 2013, according to projections from the International Data Corporation. The modern wave of these sleek mobile devices provides us new ways to check our e-mail, surf the Web, read books, play games, watch movies and television, run an ever-expanding list of applications, and even do some productive work. The varying needs of consumers in an expanding market are creating new types of tablet computers with different screen sizes and application capabilities. At the same time, the power of tablet computer applications is dependent on the availability of highly efficient digital resources in remote data centers. View full abstract»
