Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nbhsd6/bosch_sensortec) has announced the addition of the "Bosch Sensortec BMA355 - 3-Axis MEMS Accelerometer - Reverse Costing Analysis" report to their offering.
After being integrated in the latest Apple's iPhone in 2013, Bosch is now the top MEMS supplier according to Yole's Top 30 MEMS Ranking 2014. This strong growth is mainly due to the consumer and mobile business of Bosch Sensortec.
With a size of only 1.4mm3 (1.2x1.5x0.8mm), the BMA355 is the smallest MEMS accelerometer on the market and features 60% volume reduction compared to state of the art 2x2x0.9mm MEMS accelerometers. This size reduction has been made possible by the use of a WLCSP package where all the manufacturing steps are realized at the wafer-level. To interconnect MEMS and ASIC with a WLCSP package, Through-Silicon Vias (TSVs) are used, introducing the first MEMS component with TSV Via-Middle process.
The BMA355 is a 12-bit digital resolution accelerometer well suited for applications requiring extremely small form factors.
The report includes a detailed technical and cost comparison with state of the art MEMS accelerometers from STMicroelectronics and mCube.

In past @ThingsExpo presentations, Joseph di Paolantonio has explored how various Internet of Things (IoT) and data management and analytics (DMA) solution spaces will come together as sensor analytics ecosystems. This year, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Joseph di Paolantonio from DataArchon, will be adding the numerous Transportation areas, from autonomous vehicles to “Uber for containers.” While IoT data in any one area of Transportation will have a huge impact in that area, combining sensor...

With an estimated 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020, several industries will begin to expand their capabilities for retaining end point data at the edge to better utilize the range of data types and sheer volume of M2M data generated by the Internet of Things. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and President of Infobright, discussed the infrastructures businesses will need to implement to handle this explosion of data by providing specific use cases for filterin...

Security, data privacy, reliability, and regulatory compliance are critical factors when evaluating whether to move business applications from in-house, client-hosted environments to a cloud platform. Quality assurance plays a vital role in ensuring that the appropriate level of risk assessment, verification, and validation takes place to ensure business continuity during the migration to a new cloud platform.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
