Universal Serial Bus (USB) was originally developed to define communication protocols, including cables and connectors, between computers and electronic devices like printers and scanners. The USB port was adopted as the basic connection portal as the number of devices multiplied in quantity and types. Devices can connect to computers with USB ports allowing recharging and communication thereby replacing the requirement of adapters and power chargers. USB 3.0 vs USB 2.0 Transfer rates: USB 2.0 has transfer rates of 480 Mbps, and USB 3.0 has transfer rates of 4.8 Gbps, which is ten times faster. Dual-bus architecture: The amount of wires was doubled, which is from 4 wires to 8 wires. Additional wires need more space in both the cables and connectors, so new types of connectors were designed. Power consumption: USB 2.0 caters up to 500 mA whereas USB 3.0 caters up to ... (more)

How to Avoid Image Burn on LCD Monitors

An image burn, also known as screen burn-in, ghost image, or screen burn is a permanent discoloration of areas on an electronic display such as cathode ray tube display or computer display monitor caused by cumulative non-uniform usage of the pixels. With phosphor-based electronic displays, non-uniform of pixels, such as prolonged display of non-moving images can form a permanent ghost-like image of these objects or otherwise degrade image quality. This happens because the phosphor compounds that emit light to product images lose their luminance with use. With uneven usage it re... (more)

Internet of Things (IoT) of Gateway Platforms Solution

Most pundits in the industry predicted that there will be more than 200 billion devices by 2020, connected to the Internet, or some would call the "cloud". This is described as the era of Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is a big collection of smart sensors, networks, servers, and services that interact among them. This trend applies to all sectors or markets, and it is a way to automate, control, and manage factories, homes, transportation, energy, medical/healthcare facility, etc. All layers of networks, from applications, middleware, virtualization, connectivity, and devices,...

The Right IoT Networking And Embedded PC To Reduce Downtime

The right IoT networking and embedded PC to reduce downtime. Industrial systems are especially sensitive to downtime caused by network issues. Time is money, and a minute offline can mean thousands of dollars in potential losses, if not more. For mission-critical systems, the stakes can be even higher and may involve public safety. To help minimize the chances of experiencing a significant downtime event, here are some key several attributes that industrial users can look for in their networking equipment. Industrial Design   All networking devices are not created equal. Ether... (more)

What Are the Differences Between OLED and LED?

LED (Light Emitting Diode) and OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) operate along the same principals, but in actuality the way they function are different. The most basic difference is that each in OLED, each pixel provides its own illumination, while all of the pixels in an LCD screen are illuminated by an LED backlight. LED screens are LCD screens with LEDs in place that backlight the pixels of an LCD, since they do not emit any illumination of their own. The three types of LED technology that primarily used are white-edge LEDs, LED arrays, and dynamic LEDs. White-Edge LEDS ar... (more)
