In addition to great picture quality, High-Definition Televisions (HDTVs) like the HP-R4262 have numerous connections to simplify interfacing to external equipment. One of the newest solutions is the High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) connection. A number of key manufacturers of consumer electronics defined the connector as a next-generation digital interface specification for consumer electronics products. HDMI carries both the video and audio signals and has sufficient bandwidth for future enhancements. Resembling a USB connector, the HDMI connection is smaller than the Digital Visual Interface (DVI) connector that just handles high-definition video.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
