HCC’s field-proven file system products use the unique features of FusionHD devices to significantly improve performance and data retention, reliability, and battery life of smart IoT devices.HCC offers a range of flash management products, which enables customers to choose the most efficient solution depending on their specific product-design goals. Product developers can simulate the complete lifetime of the product and model their use cases leading to accurate decisions that ensure their design is optimized for both cost and reliability. Customers also benefit from HCC’s expert knowledge of issues relating to system fail-safety as well as support for specialist features such as emergency write and security that contribute to overall system reliability.Adesto’s FusionHD non-volatile memories (NVMs) are designed for next-generation consumer and industrial IoT edge devices. FusionHD serial flash technology builds on the Smart IoT feature set of Adesto’s Fusion family with even more capabilities, patented low-power technology, security features, and increased memory density options. FusionHD NVMs can bring system-level advantages to long-life industrial IoT devices such as sensors, meters and other edge devices and controllers. The extended battery life and wide operating voltage range offered by FusionHD NVMs help to prolong the active lifetime of these devices, which are often deployed in remote or inaccessible locations. HCC helps optimize target systems for cost, performance, reliability and battery life by using unique features of FusionHD serial flash technology, among them the following:interrupt on completion of an internal programming or erase operation, which helps decrease power consumption and reduces CPU load;small page write/erase units, which help with the design of efficient fail-safe solutions; andinternal RAM buffers that serve several purposes, including providing a super-efficient mechanism for managing emergency writes.There are many applications for Adesto’s FusionHD NVMs in industrial, medical monitoring, smart metering, home automation, and consumer electronics applications. For that reason, HCC has four embedded file system products that allow designers to get the most from FusionHD serial flash solutions:SafeFLASH, an efficient flash file system;TINY flash file system for resource constrained environments;SMFS optimized for metering or data-logging type applications; andSafeFTL flash translation layer, a reliable management layer for FAT-compatible file systems.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software last_img read more

MPA Blitzes Congress Over Copyright Threat

first_imgAs FOLIO: first reported, National Geographic is fighting a copyright case against a former photographer in 11th Circuit Court of Appeals over the Complete National Geographic, a pioneering CD-ROM project the magazine released in 1997. In that case, now entering its 11th year of litigation, a Florida judge awarded the photographer $400,000 in damages in 2004—a decision National Geographic appealed.The amended version of the PRO-IP bill is now under consideration by the full Judiciary Committee. The MPA says there is “always the possibility that a similar statutory damages provision could be introduced at some point in the future.” The House Judiciary subcommittee voted unanimously last week to send an amended version of a bill to the full judiciary committee, striking a section that would have changed the civil penalties for copyright infringements in compilations to allow each work in a compilation to count as a separate infringement. In a note to members, the Magazine Publishers of America called Section 104 of the H.R. 4279 PRO-IP bill a “very damaging provision for the magazine industry.” The bill would have allowed plaintiffs to collect multiple awards of statutory damages, the possibility of which, the MPA says, would likely have kept magazine publishers from putting complete editions of a magazine on DVD.The MPA and other groups, including the Digital Media Association (representing Microsoft, Google and Yahoo) and the Printing Industries of America, have fought a vigorous campaign to remove that section from the legislation. In January, the MPA met with House and Judiciary Committee leadership to discuss the case, and last month “blitzed” key committee members’ Congressional offices.last_img read more

Dark mode color scheme is coming to iPhones with iOS 13

first_img reading • Dark mode color scheme is coming to iPhones with iOS 13 At the end of 2018, there were 1.4 billion Apple devices actively used around the globe, the company said in late January during its quarterly earnings report. More than 900 million of them were iPhones.Meanwhile, Apple has more different operating systems than ever before. There’s iOS for iPhones and iPads, MacOS  for its computers, tvOS for Apple TV and watchOS for the Apple Watch. Then there’s Apple Pay, iTunes, Apple Music, the App Store, iCloud, HomeKit and various other apps and services. It’s critical that Apple make a strong impression at WWDC with the next versions of its software. See also Apple’s annual developer convention kicked off Monday at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California (fittingly enough for fans of dark mode, the show’s opening video featured the song “I Guess I Should Go to Sleep” by Jack White). The confab is in its 30th year, and it’s the third year for Apple to hold its developer conference in San Jose. The city — the third biggest in California and 10th largest in the US — is about 50 miles south of San Francisco and only about 10 miles from Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino.WWDC is where Apple details its newest software and services that will arrive on devices later in the year. The company may be best known for its hardware, but the seamless integration of its hardware with its software is what sets Apple apart from rivals. Apple’s ability to control every aspect of its products — something that began when Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded the company in 1976 — has been key in making it the most powerful company in tech.

Another 12% used iOS 11, and 5 percent of devices ran an older version, according to the company’s developer dashboard. By comparison, only about 10% of Android devices ran Google’s latest software, dubbed Pie, as of May 7At the end of Apple’s WWDC presentation last year, the company gave a sneak peak of Project Marzipan, its effort to make it easy to take apps developed for iOS devices to Macs. Its MacOS update released in September included four of Apple’s own apps that originated on iOS — News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home.. CNET’s Shara Tibken contributed to this story.
