(PRWEB) June 29, 2005

Available in Canada, the US, and Europe, the ASUS V6V notebook’s carbon fiber composite chassis is lightweight, durable, and sophisticated with its sleek, brushed gunmetal colored surface. The result: a fusion of form and function that won the prestigious iF Design Award. The V6V notebook includes the latest personal computing technologies such as DDR II memory, ATI 3D graphics processor and Bluetooth™ wireless connectivity to offer robust computing capability and wireless freedom. The V6Vnotebook has a Zero Bright Dot (ZBD) LCD panel with an ATI Mobility™ Radeon™ X600graphics processor that guarantees total satisfaction with notebook display performance. The V6V notebook innovates by positioning powerful speakers in the notebook’ s palm rest to deliver loud and clear sound quality.

Comfort, Power and Sound

When designing the V6V notebooks, ASUS placed strong consideration on ergonomics, robust power and sound clarity.

Users enjoy multimedia entertainment over fast interfaces running graphics intensive and memory-efficient applications with improved speed and efficiency.

The Slim & Sleek

Though the V6V notebook comes equipped with a 15” display, it weighs a mere 2.49kg (5.5 lbs), which is lighter than most 14” notebooks. The V6V notebook’s 8 option keys are placed to provide a distraction-free working area.

Longer Battery Life

The exclusive Power4 Gear+ battery-saving technology controls CPU speed to maximize battery performance. Offering 8 different modes designed for gaming, watching DVDs, listening to music, etc, the Power4 Gear+ battery-saving technology innovation saves battery life by 15%-20% over other notebook brands.

7-inch ‘Ceros Motion’ Quadcore Android Phone-Tablet Sets New Bar For Connectivity

Shenzhen, Guangdong (PRWEB) September 30, 2013

TECH buyers looking for an Android phone/tablet capable of excellent reception in the most remote locations while also being affordable and having an excellent performance should look towards a newly launched 7 Inch quadcore 3G Phablet "Ceros Motion", according to a product line-up announcement from China Android Phone Seller Chinavasion.

According to Chinavasion PR Manager Rose Li, the Ceros Motion offers the unique benefit of having two SIM card slots the only tablet phone on the market to offer a wide range of coverage.

"By having two unlocked SIM card slots users can be sure to get data coverage no matter where they go," says Li. “This makes it almost an essential tool for travellers.”

Li says this is not the only thing Ceros has worked hard at and the Motion offers a fantastic performance with a MTK 8389 quad core cortex-A7 chip producing a powerful 1.2Ghz performance on the very latest Android 4.2 operating system.

“This 7 inch tablet is blazingly quick to use,” says Li. “Users will be able to get several tasks done at once or operate a graphics heavy game without any form of lag with this Android tablet.”

Li says users will also enjoy a fantastic view from the Android tablet with the Ceros offering a 1280x800 resolution on the industry-leading IPS screen.

"Very few other sellers offer IPS technology," says Li. "Users constantly tell us that their IPS screen devices are crisper and clearer than anything they’ve seen before."

China tablet maker Ceros is quickly creating a name for itself in China and in the west with its ability to offer tablets with some of the best specs possible while still maintaining prices lower than high street brands with similar or even lower specs.

In fact Li says Ceros Motion users can expect the quadcore tablet to cost the same as many brand name tablets with dual core processors and much lower specs.

“Ceros and Chinavasion has gone out of their way to offer devices with the very best specs for the lowest possible prices,” said Li.

Chinavasion is an online retailer and wholesaler of Android tablets and other electronics gadgets.

Connectivity, Telematics and Infotainment Components Shape the Latest Function and Design Components of the Modern Automobile Interior

Detroit, MI (PRWEB) August 01, 2012

Automotive IQ, a division of IQPC, announces the Hi-Tech Automotive Interiors Summit, taking place September 13 to 14, 2012 in Detroit, Michigan. The Summit focuses on strategies for improving the connectivity, telematics and infotainment components that are shaping the functional and design components of modern automobile interiors.

Revenues for the North American automotive interior systems and modules market totaled $ 28.30 billion in 2004 and exceeded $ 44 billion in 2011. Connected interior systems and modules have become the focus of innovation and differentiation in vehicles, and automakers have had to emphasize value addition through cutting edge styling, ergonomic design, convenience, and the use of recyclable materials.

Fast developing interfaces including touch screen, voice, and gesture are also beginning to make their way into a broader segment of automobiles in the US market. As a result of consumer demand, instrument panel skin technologies, and efforts toward mass reduction, automakers are under pressure to offer customized features and differentiate vehicles not only from their competitors', but also from other vehicles in their own lines.

The Hi-Tech Automotive Interiors Summit addresses major advancements in vehicle interiors including telematics and mobile integration, as well as integration of federal regulations for the distracted driver. Leaders in the infotainment and human-machine interface (HMI) fields are speaking on dynamic strategies for advancing vehicle infotainment systems while maintaining quality and safety. Other highlights include:

Insights on where the infotainment space is heading and what new technologies to prepare for.
In-depth presentations of new telematics technology and the future of mobile to vehicle integration.
Strategies from leading organizations on the impact of the distracted driver and safety regulations affecting the infotainment space.

The 2012 Hi-Tech Automotive Interiors Summit provides automobile manufacturers and suppliers key insights into developing technology and regulations in infotainment, telematics, and HMI. Internal strategies from key industry leaders provide attendees techniques they can implement in their interior systems design.

Raleigh, NC, (PRWEB) September 6, 2003 -

based VME COTS computing systems and solutions to OEMs and system integrators, has introduced the PowerNode3, a single/dual 1 GHz PowerPC G4 high-end computing node featuring enhanced connectivity and reduced power consumption. PowerNode3 is designed for state-of-the-art applications requiring real-time data and signal processing, including sonar, radar, medical imaging and machine vision systems.

Product Details

The new PowerNode3 features dual and single Motorola PowerPC G4 7457 processors running at 1 GHz, each equipped with a 2 MB L3 cache and 2 MB private SRAM, linked via a 133 MHz Avignon host bridge. Up to 1 GB onboard SDRAM is accessible at the local bus speed of 133 MHz. The new board provides twin PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) slots (one

64-bit 66 MHz and one 32-bit 33/43 MHz).

PowerNode3 is designed for connectivity, with an ALMA2e VME-PCI bridge that enables 2eSST data transfers at up to 180 MB/s for VME board interconnection. Dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and 4 asynchronous RS232/422/485 lines provide a range of high-speed networking and connection options. In addition, three differential 4x high-speed links are routed to the P0 backplane (as per PICMG 2.17), enabling the PowerNode3 CPU board to be interconnected to fabric technologies based on the LVDS standard.

The PowerNode3 sets a new standard for low power consumption in a high-end node, with a typical draw of 30 W for dual CPU configuration, versus competitive boards that draw up to 60 W (with 7455 1 GHz solutions). The new board is available in three convection-cooled versions (standard, extended temperature, and rugged), as well as a rugged conduction-cooled version for harsh environment applications.

Thales Computers also offers COTS hardware and software as well as dedicated services in a value-added program including high-performance communication layers, machine development and supervision software, built-in test, machine integration, acceptance tests, and configuration and life-cycle management.
