Kopin Corporation (Nasdaq:KOPN), a leading developer of innovative wearable computing technologies and solutions, today announced the addition of the A914 Display Driver and CyberDisplay nHD display. The A914 chip, with its integrated MIPI® receiver for seamless connectivity to mobile processors, can drive the CyberDisplay nHD display and a number of Kopin’s other displays. The compact CyberDisplay nHD display with 640 x 360 resolution in 0.26” diagonal provides more than 5000 nits (candela per square meter), sufficient brightness for full sunlight readability.
The MIPI interface specification is an industry standard which significantly reduces the number of wire connections from the mobile processor to displays and cameras, enabling ever more compact and feature-rich mobile electronics. The A914 supports MIPI D-PHY/MIPI DSI video input interface as well as MIPI low power control protocol. The digital video input supports 24 bit, 18 bit and 16 bit RGB. Digital image processing functions include brightness and contrast control, gamma correction, and image flip. The chip also features integrated charge pump and backlight driver circuits. The output stage includes 9-bit DACs and video amplifiers to drive the RGB signals to the display. The A914 drives Kopin's nHD and other CyberDisplay products, including displays at VGA and WVGA resolution, and is designed to support future displays now in development.
“Kopin’s new MIPI-compliant solutions enable customers to manufacture wearable products that seamlessly connect with smartphones, tables and other connected devices,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, CEO of Kopin. “Our A914 chip can drive our displays with several different resolutions and consumes very low power thanks to our patented technology. Kopin has been an early innovator in wearable technology and our displays and components provide best-in-class performance for wearable products. Kopin’s displays and component products are at the forefront of wearable technology.”

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
