The Institute for Robotic Process Automation Expands Focus to Artificial Intelligence
NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA, Feb. 15, 2017 — The Institute for Robotic Process Automation (IRPA), today announced it has officially expanded the focus of its professional association and knowledge forum to include Artificial Intelligence and is changing its name to IRPA AI. The organization’s rebranding reflects the broader range of coverage and resources the institute is extending to its 7,000+ growing membership, widening the scope beyond RPA to include intelligent automation, cognitive computing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
“With our rebrand, we are changing more than just our name. It’s the next chapter of a much bigger story that goes beyond technology — it’s about how work gets done,” said Frank Casale, founder of IRPA AI. “For most enterprises, it is no longer just about RPA. Many organizations have expressed their interest and need to learn more and quickly; they are anxious about the quickening pace of change. IRPA AI means we are expanding our role as educator, connector, supporter, facilitator and, occasionally, even therapist. We are aligning our focus to meet our members’ escalating needs.”
Intersil Announces Industry’s Smallest Isolated RS-485 Transceiver
MILPITAS, CA, USA, Feb. 13, 2017 — Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a leading provider of innovative power management and precision analog solutions, today announced the industry’s smallest isolated RS-485 differential bus transceiver designed to provide 4 Mbit/s bidirectional data transmission for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) networks. The high-speed ISL32704E delivers industry-leading Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Common-Mode Transient Immunity (CMTI) in a small 4 mm x 5 mm QSOP package that is 70 percent smaller than competitive devices. It also provides 600 Vrms of working voltage, which is approximately 50 percent higher than the closest competitor.
UniPixel Prepares for Flexible Display Market
SANTA CLARA, CA, USA, Feb. 7, 2017 — UniPixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of high performance metal mesh capacitive touch sensors to the touchscreen and flexible display markets, announced today positive results from in-house testing conducted on its XTouch touch screen sensors for use in future flexible/foldable display devices such as smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices.
UniPixel conducted tests in which its XTouch sensors were folded and opened more than 200,000 times at a 2-millimeter radius at the fold. During the tests, as well as at the conclusion of those tests, there was no damage to the XTouch sensors and no degradation to their performance capabilities. Flexible displays will also need to have a thin and pliable cover lens that will bend consistently without damage. UniPixel’s Diamond Guard scratch-resistant cover lens technology is an excellent complement to XTouch sensors as it is applied in a very thin layer and will bend and seamlessly fold as it protects the underlying touch sensor metal mesh from abrasion damage.
Aurora Multimedia and Huawei to Introduce World’s First 10G PoE Solution At ISE 2017
MORGANVILLE, NJ, USA, Feb. 7, 2017 — Aurora Multimedia Corporation, a leader in A/V over IP, is pleased to announce the world’s first long-awaited network switch by Huawei that will allow the 10G PoE of Aurora’s IPX transceiver to receive PoE directly from the network switch. This follows the initial introduction of Aurora’s award winning IPBaseT technology and the IPX Series 10G with zero compression/zero latency, 4K streaming boxes and wall plates over two years ago.
Aurora’s IPX Series is the first 10G streaming product to utilize PoE but has been waiting for a 10G network switch to complement the capability. The IPX Series comprises six products; three of which are 10G copper (IPX-TC1-C, IPX-TC2-C, and IPX-TCW3-C). Huawei will be releasing a 24 (S6720-32C-PWH-SI) and 48 (S6720-52X-PWH-SI) port 10G PoE/PoE+/PoE++ switch in Q2. Simultaneously, the products will exhibit the effectiveness of 10G PoE in real-world applications and rush in a new era of 10G products.
Aquantia Announces the Industry’s First FPGA-Programmable Multi-Gigabit Ethernet PHY Device
SAN JOSE, CA, USA, Jan. 30, 2017 — Aquantia Corp., a pioneer and market leader in high-speed Ethernet connectivity solutions for data centers, enterprise infrastructure, and client connectivity, today announced the AQcite product line of FPGA-programmable Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Physical Layer (PHY) devices, integrating Aquantia’s AQrate BASE-T PHY with a Xilinx® Kintex® -7 FPGA. The new AQcite product line targets a vast range of applications such as Audio-Visual (AV) over Ethernet, machine vision, data center, enterprise, 5G wireless, industrial, metro environments, and more.
With the rising cost of Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), many companies are resorting to develop, test, and commercialize products based on FPGAs. In applications where transport of data and networking is required, Ethernet is often the preferred choice. Foreseeing the need to deliver smaller footprints and cost advantages to its customers, Aquantia has developed AQcite, a unique device that integrates both Multi-Gigabit BASE-T PHY and FPGA functions in a single-chip package.
Enea Announces Industry First: Qosmos Signatures for Third Party Deep Packet Inspection Libraries
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Feb 02, 2017 — Enea® (NASDAQ OMX Nordic: ENEA) today announced the availability of Qosmos® Signatures for networking and security product vendors who wish to extend their Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) libraries with the most complete and widely used signature dataset on the market.
Product vendors with in-house DPI libraries face the costly challenge of constantly updating signatures for protocols that change regularly and without prior notice. While some basic protocols are easy to manage since they are relatively stable, a growing number of proprietary and fast-evolving protocols such as websites, social networking, video streaming, and gaming applications require important internal resources for development, testing, and validation to keep signatures up-to-date. This can slow down product cycles and detract product developers from the development of their core technology.
Platform9 Launches Industry’s First Infrastructure-Agnostic Managed Kubernetes Service
SUNNYVALE, CA, USA, Jan. 24, 2017 — Platform9, the open-source-as-a-service company making cloud infrastructure easy, today announced the general availability of its Managed Kubernetes service, the industry’s first infrastructure-agnostic, SaaS-managed offering. Unlike legacy software distribution models, Managed Kubernetes is deployed and managed entirely as a SaaS solution, across on-premises and public cloud infrastructure. The company also introduced Fission, a new, open source, serverless framework built on Kubernetes. These offerings feature a drastically simplified operational and consumption model that eliminates the steep learning curve currently associated with Kubernetes and allows DevOps and IT teams to focus on solving core business problems.
