AIS Open PC-Based HMI Processor Integration, Design and Manufacturing Takes Huge Leaps Forward Thanks To the Latest Intel® Microarchitecture Haswell Processor
As the first new microarchitecture on the 22nm manufacturing process, it marked the arrival of a new 4th gen Intel® Core™ platform, which comprises 4th generation Intel Core processors and the Intel® 8 Series chipset family (codename Lynx Point). This new platform delivers significant performance advancements-including vastly improved graphics, battery life and security. Promising giant leaps in power efficiency and overall performance, the Intel chipsets utilizes a newly designed architecture and are manufactured using the 22nm process. Haswell is the codename for a processor microarchitecture developed by Intel as the successor to the Ivy Bridge architecture.
AIS Design for Manufacturing Services for Open HMI Systems Speeds up Time-To-Market, Reduces Manufacturing Costs, While Increasing Product Availability
The design stage is a critical phase in touchscreen panel design at AIS. Most of the HMI product lifecycle costs are committed at the design stage. At AIS, HMI product designs are not just based on great design methodology. They are also based on a comprehensive, cost-effective and efficient approach to manufacturing. Sometimes an otherwise good design concept is not practical to produce. With an extensive set of tools for HMI & displays design simulation and testing, AIS goes to great length to ensure a product is designed, engineered and manufactured with great efficiency and offers customers future product availability. We offer a wide range of electrical, software, mechanical, health, safety, and environmental design capabilities. AIS designs meet many popular specifications and standards including: automotive, military, marine, ISO, IEC, UL, CE, MIL, DNV, ATEX, SAE and/or customer specific applications.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
