Sensirion temperature sensor STS3x used by modum’s monitoring system

first_img Continue Reading Previous Mouser adds Micron’s memory solutions to its portfolioNext Xilinx FPGAs deployed for AI acceleration modum has developed a compact data logger for temperature-controlled shipments that features Sensirion’s STS3x high-accuracy, calibrated digital temperature sensor. As part of the monitoring solution for enabling EU GDP (Good Distribution Practice) compliance, it is capable of tracking environmental conditions for a variety of temperature-sensitive goods including pharmaceutical products.Accuracy, compliance and auditability of the measurements are guaranteed by combining Sensirion’s calibrated temperature sensors with state-of-the-art blockchain technology. Upon receipt of a package, the receiver downloads the cryptographically signed measurement data from the temperature logger and the signed metadata such as the individual Sensirion serial number for end-to-end traceability. All data is wirelessly transmitted and checked by shipment-specific “smart contracts” on the blockchain, a decentralized digital ledger used to immutably store and verify its compliance with the conditions previously agreed to by the sender and receiver, allowing them to either release the product or arrange corrective or preventative actions.Sensirion’s STS3x products come in a compact form factor of 2.5 x 2.5 x 0.9 mm3 and are suitable for many battery-operated IoT applications, thanks to the low power consumption and wide supply voltage range of 2.15-5.5 V. The sensors are suitable in particular for products that cannot compromise on accuracy and reliability. The sensors are fully calibrated, linearized and supply voltage-compensated, making a correction or calibration by the user unnecessary. As with all sensors by Sensirion, the STS3x is based on the unique CMOSens Technology, which integrates the sensing element and read-out electronics onto a single chip, enabling high production volume at an exceptional price/performance ratio.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components last_img read more

Using power analysis to optimize battery life in IoT devices

first_imgThe Internet of Things (IoT) continues its rapid growth, but in the rush to capitalize on great business opportunities, many companies miss key technical opportunities to gain market share and lock in a large, highly satisfied installed base. Application areas including smart cities, smart agriculture, smart energy, smart environment, smart homes, connected cars, smart buildings, and wireless medical devices are driving forecasts of tens or hundreds of billions of devices over the next few years. Companies that make the right decisions for device operation at end of battery life can delight customers and gain a competitive advantage. Battery life is key Many IoT applications rely on small, non-rechargeable batteries, so optimizing battery life is important for several reasons. The most obvious reason is that customers prefer long operating life; device vendors who demonstrate superiority in this area will have a key competitive advantage that drives market share growth.  In some cases, a long battery life may be essential to a project’s economic viability, and early failures of sensors and actuators may lead to unacceptably high replacement costs.  If these costs are covered under warranty, the financial risk to the manufacturer may be extremely high.There are also environmental issues associated with batteries, and proper disposal costs both time and money. Furthermore, some devices are installed in locations that are difficult to access, so the labor costs of battery replacement are considerable.  If the battery is in an implanted medical device, the cost and risk go up exponentially, to say nothing of the legal and human costs associated with failed medical devices.To understand how products consume battery power, manufacturers use various tools to perform battery drain analysis (BDA).  For simple devices that consume power at a steady rate, a digital multimeter (DMM) may suffice.  For complex devices, such as cell phones and IoT devices, the current waveforms are highly variable, with fast switching between operational modes in the tens or hundreds of milliamps and sleep modes measured in micro- or nano-amps.  To meet this challenge, modern BDA instruments must have good measurement bandwidth and seamless ranging to avoid losing data during measurement range changes. Beyond battery drain analysis to event-based power analysis To make the appropriate design enhancements, design engineers also must know what is causing the charge consumption.  This is particularly important for IoT device designers, because the IoT evolves quickly and product development cycles are very tight.  Design and validation engineers must get quick insights into how and why their devices consume power, so correlating charge consumption with RF and sub-circuit events is key.  Many engineers find that event-based power analysis quickly reveals what events they need to focus on to improve their device’s charge consumption behavior.  For example, event-based power analysis software can automatically analyze a waveform to produce fast, graphical insights, as shown below in figure 1. Figure 1:  Event-based power analysis on Keysight X8712A IoT device battery life optimization solution In this case, the user can quickly see that the events labeled MCU and DUT Tx are consuming more than 80% of the device’s power (bar chart), and that most of the charge is consumed at rates between 5 and 10 mA (CCDF chart, bottom).  Such insights allow the design engineer to make intelligent architectural, hardware configuration, and firmware programming choices. The engineer can also quickly re-test the device to see the effects of the changes.Eventually, of course, the device’s battery will near the end of its charge, and what was once a steady 3.3-V battery (for example) will deliver only 3.2 V, then 3.1 V, and so on until it fails completely, often in a mode that turns out to be surprising.  Instead of simply letting the device operate normally until the battery fails, you can give your product a competitive edge by carefully answering the following questions: Where is the critical point? What would customers want you do about it?

Foreign Ministry denies claims Sri Lankas envoy to UK resigned

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs today denied claims that Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to the UK, Mrs Amari Wijewardene had resigned.The Foreign Ministry said that High Commissioner Wijewardene will conclude her contract on her own volition by 31 March 2018. Brigadier Priyanka Fernando was seen gesticulating to slit throats of a group of pro-LTTE demonstrators opposite the High Commission office in London on February 4 when the embassy was celebrating the 70th independence day.He was immediately suspended from work following a video, which showed him behaving in an offensive manner. Meanwhile, the Defense Attaché to the Sri Lanka High Commission in London, Brigadier Priyanka Fernando, returned to Sri Lanka today. “The reports being circulated in the media attributed to the Secretary to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stating that Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to the UK, Mrs. Amari Wijewardene, has resigned, are incorrect. High Commissioner Wijewardene will conclude her contract on her own volition by 31 March 2018,” the Foreign Ministry said in a brief statement. However, he was later allowed to resume duties on a presidential directive. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Time Incs MAGHOUND Shuttering

first_imgAt time of launch, MAGHOUND offered titles from Bonnier, Time Inc., Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and Meredith. The service shared a cut of revenue with partnering publishers, and sales were classified as single copy. Time Inc.’s print magazine venture MAGHOUND is closing. The service debuted in 2008, and is expected to fold early this year. Dubbed the “Netflix of the magazine industry” in the press, MAGHOUND hawked multiple titles for a discount price, without the commitment of a subscription. The Time Inc. subsidiary offered three titles for $4.95 a month, five for $7.95, seven mags for $9.95 and $1.00 per title for eight magazines or more. The service, which billed customers’ credit/debit cards directly, operated on a monthly cycle. According to a Time Inc. representative, the publisher will close the division in order to focus budgets and manpower on the digital push (all 21 Time titles were digitized in 2011). There will be a grace period in which users are made aware of thechanges and advised to subscribe directly to their magazines of choice. Despite the impending closure, the rep tells FOLIO: that Time Inc. credits MAGHOUND for the technology that allows authentication on its tablet editions.

SC dismisses review plea of Khalaf murder convict

first_imgKhalaf Al AliThe Supreme Court on Sunday dismissed a review petition against its judgment that upheld the death penalty for a convict in the murder case of Saudi embassy official Khalaf Al Ali, reports UNB.A four-member bench of the Appellate Division, led by chief justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, came up with the order rejecting the petition filed by the convict.Now, there is no bar for executing the verdict against convict Mamun, said attorney general Mahbubey Alam.On Thursday, the SC set 7 October (today) to deliver order on the review petition filed against its judgement in the murder case.The SC upheld the High Court verdict that awarded death sentence to Mamun, and life term imprisonment to three others — Md Al Amin, Akbar Ali Lalu, and Rafiqul Islam.Khalaf Al Ali, 45, a non-diplomatic official with the consular section of the embassy, was shot near his Gulshan residence on the night of 5 March 2012.A murder case was filed with the capital’s Gulshan police station against five people, two days after the killing.On 30 December 2012, a Dhaka court sentenced all the five accused of the case to death.However, the decision was overturned when the convicts’ appeal and death sentence was sent to the HC.In 2013, the High Court acquitted fugitive Selim Chowdhury, commuted the sentences of Md Al Amin, Akbar Ali Lalu and Rafiqul Islam to life in prison, and upheld the death sentence of Saiful Islam Mamun.The state then filed an appeal with the Supreme Court in 2014.last_img read more

President wants more pressure on Myanmar over Rohingya crisis

first_imgPresident M Abdul Hamid addresses a global security summit on the sidelines of the World Investment Forum-2018 in Geneva, Switzerland on Thursday. Photo: BSSPresident M Abdul Hamid on Thursday called for mounting global pressures on Myanmar to take back forcibly displaced Rohingya population.The president said this as he addressed a global security summit on the sidelines of the World Investment Forum-2018 in Geneva, Switzerland.“Global problem requires global solution…I urge all members of the international community to arrive at a durable solution,” he said.President Hamid was delivering his speech on ‘The hardening of international relations: A risk to peace and security’ at the opening session of the 20th Homeland and Global Security Forum at Plenary Hall at the Grand Hotel Kempinski in Geneva.The president is now on his five-day official visit to Geneva of Switzerland to attend the World Investment Forum-2018.“We all are appalled by what we have seen in the UN reports about the horrifying atrocities committed against the Rohingyas and we are trying to do our best in our ability to provide them food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, childcare and above all, the sense of security,” he said.“The case of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar may be considered as an acid test for the global community to collectively deal with an international problem and a test case for any future international cooperation on peace and security,” the president said.Observing that the rise of terrorism and extremism along with proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and trans-national crimes are pushing the humanity to the edge, he said local or regional conflicts abound in all parts of the world and unfortunately, instead of putting pressures on the opposing sides, the countries are seen to take different sides.Abdul Hamid stressed the need for concerted efforts involving all countries to face new security threats like cyber-attack and cope with the adverse impacts of climate change-induced disasters.“Peace has now become more than absence of war and the traditional definition of security has changed forever. Now we also have powerful non-state actors to influence the international politics to make the matter worse.“As the Fourth Industrial Revolution has presented us with unparalleled prospect of development, at the same time the humanity is also faced with probably the greatest dangers and existential threats in all its known history,” he said.Noting that the world must feed more than 9 billion people by 2050 but it is not prepared for that, Abdul Hamid said malnutrition and hunger are still ruling many parts of the world.“The rise of nationalist identity-based politics set by different countries along with lack of trust are directly impacting activities of different multilateral organisations and their peace-building efforts…both at global and regional levels, absence of trust and lack of collaboration are on the rise,” he said.President of Amenia Armen Sarkissian, Montenegro president Filip Vujanovic and Lesotho prime minister Thomas Motsoahae Thabane, among others, spoke on the occasion with honorary chairman and founder of Crans Montana Forum Jean-Paul Carteron in the chair.President Hamid also exchanged greetings with the heads of the states and representatives of different countries.last_img read more

SonoCine Releases 3D Multiplanar Reconstruction Software to Improve Breast Cancer Detection

first_img July 20, 2016 — SonoCiné recently unveiled new 3-D whole breast multiplanar reconstruction software to improve early detection of breast cancer. This new software package augments SonoCiné’s existing Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound (AWBUS) high-resolution transverse imaging technology.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared SonoCiné connects to standard ultrasound machines, and provides a consistent, repeatable scan of the whole breast, including the axilla (underarm / lymph nodes). The new software package offers viewing in three dimensions. It maintains the high-resolution transverse view, and adds the coronal and sagittal views.”Studies have shown that using the native transverse acquisition plane image is more reliable in detecting both benign and malignant masses,” said A. Thomas Stavros, M.D., a board-certified radiologist and breast ultrasound expert. “However, the coronal view is an added method to visualize the lesion once it has been detected, confirm its existence, distinguish it from artifact, and is particularly good for showing spiculation and architectural distortion in malignant masses.”Once an area of suspicion has been identified using SonoCiné AWBUS, users of the new 3-D software will be able to apply whole breast multiplanar reconstruction to further investigate the region. The 3-D view shows the area being interrogated from all three planes — coronal, transverse and sagittal.”This allows for a more thorough investigation of potential lesions, which can dramatically improve diagnostic abilities,” Stavros said. “The fact that we’re adding on to existing ultrasound systems is far more cost-effective for healthcare providers, who don’t have to invest in dedicated systems or purchase additional ultrasound units. This works with what they already have in their centers.”The development of the 3D software, Davé notes, is in direct response to requests from radiologists and healthcare providers. Women with dense breast tissue are four to five times more likely to develop breast cancer and are notoriously far more difficult to diagnose by mammography alone. Informing women of their breast-tissue type and the increasing availability of better diagnostic tools are growing national trends. The Breast Density and Mammography Reporting Act, pending U.S. legislation, would require doctors to inform patients if they have dense breast tissue so that additional screening options can be explored. Currently, 28 states have regulations requiring such notifications.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The ScanTrainer transvaginal simulator is one example of Intelligent Ultrasound’s simulation technologies.
