Thanks to the high-speed, high-bandwidth, double-data rate (DDR) memory in modern processors, our smartphones, servers, computers and gaming consoles are able to operate more powerfully and at higher speeds. 

While each new generation of DDR SDRAM (Double-Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory) brings increased speed capacity and decreased power consumption, they may not be easy to incorporate into a given PCB design. Issues such as decreased design margins or signal integrity issues can stand in the way of adding better memory to your PCB. 

This five-page whitepaper will address the following concerns with integrating DDR: 

  • Variables that impact signal integrity
  • Signal integrity challenges with DDR memory devices
  • How to ensure signal integrity

IoT devices may look streamlined and simple to consumers, but within these devices are complex components, physical interfaces, PCBs and rigid-flex circuitry which all have their own design and layout challenges. 

Before incurring delays or costs associated with making an IoT product, it’s essential that engineers have a proper PCB design environment, including pre- and post-layout simulation, layout constraint management and verification, among other features. 

This seven-page whitepaper will address seven key areas in IoT PCB design, including but not limited to: 

  • IoT design domains
  • The form and fit of IoT devices
  • IoT design components
  • Capturing the IoT design intent in the schematic diagram

The Industrial Internet-of-things (IIOT) has a projected market forecast of over $40 billion, with a projected forecast of $100 billion by 2020. In the process of reaching this lofty figure, it will be necessary to convert volumes of factory data into actionable information throughout the entire manufacturing supply chain. 

As the IIOT evolves, with hundreds of thousands of sensors already deployed across the global supply chain already, who are the leading companies driving this development? And what role is Silicon Valley playing? 

This 9-page white paper will provide an illustrative map of the IIOT market, including: 

  • Which companies are developing IIOT software?
  • What players represent the sensor and actuator segment of the industry?
  • Who are the cloud service providers?
  • Which firms are filling the IoT and intelligent gateway niche?
  • Who is targeting machine-to-machine communication hardware?
  • What are the IIOT payoffs?

w_masb51c.gif Amid all this uncertainty, however, the outlook for medical devices is surprisingly bright. Investing News predicts that device manufacturers will capture major market share in 2017. Equally reassuring, Evaluate Research forecasts that medical technology sales will reach more than $529.8 billion by 2022, growing at an annual rate of 5.2 percent, and R&D expenditure will grow by 4.3 percent annually to reach $34 billion by 2022.

In this white paper, medical device experts Matt Lowe and Alex Butler discussed five trends that are likely to have a significant effect on the industry this year.

w_masb52c.gif For medical device firms, the process is part of an intense period of obtaining a 510(k) clearance or a PreMarket Approval (PMA) in the United States. While the information required is essentially the same for various registrations, the preparation, presentation, and the depth of information submitted vary greatly depending on the country. Re-registration of a medical device is no less demanding because requirements may change over time.

w_hita20c.gif HDS was named a Challenger in Gartner's most recent Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays. Vendors in the Challengers quadrant participate in the SSA market and execute well enough to be a serious threat to vendors in the Leaders quadrant. They have strong products, as well as sufficient credible market position and resources to sustain continued growth. Financial viability is not an issue for vendors in the Challengers quadrant, but they lack the size and influence of vendors in the Leaders quadrant*.

By 2020, SSA purchases by revenue will be approximately 50% of the external controller-based storage array market*. HDS leads the way with the most industry patents.

Read the full Gartner report for an assessment of Hitachi Data Systems and insight on our Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) F series and Hitachi Flash Storage (HFS).
