Mitsubishi Electric Corp. and SGS-Thomson Microelectronics join efforts and resources to develop flash-memory products, starting with multi-level 64-Mbit memories. These will include both DINOR and NOR architectures, as well as associated processes from 0.20 through 0.18 micron. Resulting products will be used primarily in portable applications such as hand-held computers, personal digital assistants, and interactive set-top boxes. The companies expect to see the market for flash- memory products grow from $2.6 billion in 1996 to more than $6 billion by 2001. Embedded applications will also benefit. These include consumer products that integrate set-top boxes, DVD, games, and Internet terminal features under the control of a standard operating system; global positioning by satellite systems for the automotive market; and industrial control systems.

With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
