They increase the potential of innovative products by adding features like the ability to display information on an automobile windshield or surfing the Web on top of a tea table. In the last decade, the market for different materials used in transparent electronic applications has grown robustly. This emerging market is expected to grow at a speculative rate in the future. Due to a large number of tech savvy people, a majority of this growth is expected from North America and Europe.

The market was dominated by transparent conducting oxides (TCO) due to their wide range of applications in touch display panels, optical coatings, flat panel displays, solar cells, defrosters, heaters, optical coating, and smart windows. TCOs can be used as passive optical or electrical coatings. The silicon compound segment is dominating the transparent electronic materials market. Zinc oxide is the cheapest and an environment friendly compound; it also has significant potential in non-volatile flash memory.

Related Report : Crystal Oscillators Market

Applications of transparent electronics include transportation, consumer electronics, energy sources and others. Owing to stringent regulations in energy consumption and emission reduction, the demand for building integrated photovoltaics (BIVP) has increased, which will accelerate the demand for transparent electronic materials. Transparent electronics reduce the size and increase the memory capacity of electronic devices. Moreover, market growth is further accelerated by technology innovation and new product developments, which will reduce the cost and size of electronic devices.

Lack of skilled manpower from different verticals such as pure and applied science, physics, chemistry, electrical, electronics, circuit engineering required to achieve desired application specific properties depending on desired properties of the final product, is a major challenge for this industry. The Oregon State University has developed zinc tin oxide based resistive random access memory (RRAM) which is also referred to as memristor. This is a new transparent technology which the computer memory operates on resistance. Products incorporated with this technology become cheaper, smaller, and faster.

U.S. Navy selects CTI Electronics for Industrial Pointing Devices

Stratford, CT (PRWEB) July 04, 2013

CTI Electronics gets green light from U.S. Navy to manufacture a military grade industrial pointing device to retrofit its fleet of Cruisers and Destroyers. In cooperation with Lockheed Martin, CTI is producing a NEMA 4X (IP66) sealed hand held Industrial Mouse in a stainless steel enclosure with an aluminum cradle for secured storage.

CTI Electronics has been supplying rugged computer peripheral and motion control devices to U.S. armed forces for over 20 years. Its commitment to long term product availability is only part of the reason for the selection of the Industrial Mouse pointing device. The ability to meet military specification standards, ensure high reliability and durability, within a tight budget was essential. Sequestration may have reduced budgets but it doesnt mean sacrificing on quality products that the men and women of the U.S. armed forces deserve.

The Industrial Mouse is a high precision joystick that allows computer cursor control in harsh environments. It prevents liquid or debris ingress, operates in extreme temperature ranges, and protects against electromagnetic interference as well as radio frequency signals. The selected M20U9-N3 pointing device has a standard USB connection with three mouse buttons on the enclosure and a left mouse button on the joystick.

The key design feature that solidified the selection of this hand held pointing device was its ease of use. The Industrial Mouse provided precision control of the mouse cursor with an instantaneous point-n-click button on the joystick. Speed and accuracy were paramount in the selection process by the military crew members. Secure and convenient storage of the pointing device was also a critical factor onboard the vessel. The aluminum cradle is mounted to a non-movable surface which securely holds the hand held pointing device with padded rubber gaskets. The design provides the operator with the freedom of usage either in or out of the cradle based upon the conditions at sea.

Along with several industrial pointing device choices, CTI offers a number of manufacturing options to tailor a device to the requirements of the application. The modular design allows sub-assemblies to be interchanged; producing hundreds of possible combinations, while still maintaining a rapid order to delivery process. For those Original Equipment Manufacturers and Systems Integrators that require a custom human machine interface device, CTIs engineering and fabrication expertise can be contracted.

About CTI

CTI Electronics Corporation is a leading U.S. manufacturer of rugged industrial computer peripherals. Products range from keyboards, joysticks, trackballs, to switches used as operator input devices, mouse pointers, or motion control devices. Designed to operate in extreme temperature ranges (-40oC to +85oC) while under harsh conditions these devices offer a NEMA 4 (IP66) watertight sealing. The commercial off the shelf human machine interface solutions can be customized to the original equipment manufacturer or systems integrator build to print specifications.

A Brilliant Display with a Stunning Price Tag: Electronics E-commerce Leader Monoprice Features a New Line of High End LED Monitor Displays and Other Gaming Accessories at CES on January 8-11, 2013

Rancho Cucamonga, CA (PRWEB) January 07, 2013

Electronics e-commerce leader Monoprice (Booth # 70311, Venetian Hotel Ballroom) has announced a new line of high end LED display monitors ideal for gamers and home entertainment enthusiasts for the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada (January 8-11, 2013.)

Monoprice ( ) is an e-commerce company that specializes in delivering high-quality PC, gaming and other tech accessories at bargain prices. They offer more than 4,000 branded and non-branded products on their website.

Monoprice introduced this new line of high-end LED monitors in early December at prices substantially lower (i.e. under $ 400) than other similar-quality displays on the market. The first model released 27-inch IPS LED CrystalPro Monitor WQHD ($ 390, Product ID #9579) -- features a stunning display with a 16:9 aspect ratio for a 2560 by 1440 resolution that is truly ideal for the serious gamer or professional graphic artist. The IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology featured in this monitor helps produce its impressive color and viewing performance, as well as increasing response time to 6 milliseconds, which is a crucial factor for gaming.

The dual-link-DVI Monoprice monitor has a tilt stand and VESA wall-mount capability, and includes built-in speakers. Monoprices display also features a glossy-black-plastic enclosure. It is also compact measuring about 25.5" x 16" x 2.3" and weighing only about 14.3 lbs.

With our new LED monitor displays, we have delivered a high end display product at a price point unheard of in the industry, said Luke Grant, Monoprices Director of Marketing. CES is the perfect venue for our growing company to show how we are continuing to expand into new markets and giving our customers a value proposition they cant find anywhere else.

Monoprice has also greatly expanded its product line of high-quality but affordable gaming accessories and will feature a number new products at CES, including gaming headsets, keyboards, mice and a gaming kit.

Details include:

7.1 Dolby Digital Amplified Gaming Headset for Xbox 360, PS3 & PC - BLACK ($ 87, Product ID #9771) -- While stereo audio is ideal for recorded music and watching TV, when it comes to FPS gaming you really need an expanded audio capability to hear when someone is ahead of you, behind you, or even overhead. Monoprices new gaming headset featuring a Dolby 7.1 channel audio system will enhance your gaming experience. The headset is designed to connect to PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 gaming systems, and includes all the necessary cables and connectors. It supports both analog 2-channel and digital 7.1 channel Toslink (optical) input and is certified by Dolby for use with Dolby Digital 5.1, Pro Logic IIx, and Dolby Headphone modes. The headset uses a USB connection for microphone communications on the PC and PS3, or a 3.5mm TRRS plug for the Xbox 360 and Smartphones. It also comes with two boom microphones -- one designed for gaming and the other for mobile hands-free use with a smartphone. An adapter is included, so this headset can be used with any smartphone, old or new. Additionally, the headset supports the Xbox Live Communication standard.

This headset features a single 40mm driver on each side instead of the usual eight small drivers packed into the two ear pieces to produce the 7.1 channel audio placement. The larger driver delivers superior, distortion-free sound reproduction under both 2-channel stereo and 7.1 channel conditions. The Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) creates the necessary phasing of the audio signal to the headset to produce a clear and accurate 7.1 channel soundstage, which provides the necessary audible queues you need to excel at FPS gaming. The DAC also allows for separate volume control over each of the 8 audio channels, so you can adjust it for the perfect soundstage balance. Although this audio system comes with only the single headset, the system can support two. Monoprices Entry-Level Amplified Gaming Headset ($ 38, Product ID #9770) can serve as a second headset for this system. Even though the entry level system is not designed for 7.1 channel audio, the headset can produce a 7.1 channel sound performance using the DAC's internal phasing circuitry.

Level X Gaming Bundle for Playstation 3 ($ 60, #10144) Take your PS3 gaming system to the next level with Monoprices Level X Gaming Bundle for Playstation 3. This bundle is the perfect add-on for a new Playstation 3 purchase or the experienced PS3 gamer and includes four essential accessories:

Game Controller - When playing local multiplayer games, you need to have at least two game controllers. This controller not only works as a second unit, but its turbo feature and ability to disable rumble -- means that you could make it your primary one.

Gaming Headsets - When gaming success depends on accurate audio cues, you don't want to rely on TV speakers. The serious gamer need a good pair of headsets, which will give you the proper volume levels for spacial cues and block out external noises that could disrupt the experience.

USB Hub - The original Playstation 3 came with 4 USB ports, but the newer versions have only two ports. When playing games like Rock Band, with a full crew, you need at least four USB ports for the wireless instrument dongles and wired microphone. Additionally, your controllers need to be charged via USB and you need USB for the Playstation Eye required for the Move controller. This hub expands your system so you can handle a full load of USB devices.

15ft USB Cable - This cable allows you to charge a controller while playing without forcing you to move next to your PS3 console with the typical 6 foot cable.

5-Button Optical Laser Gaming Mouse - Black ($ 19, Product ID #9258) -- Get the edge on the competition with Monoprices 5-Button Laser Gaming Mouse. Unlike normal optical mice, which use LEDs for illuminating the sensor, this mouse features a laser diode for improved sensitivity and accurate tracking on all surfaces. The 5-button design includes the standard left/right/wheel buttons, plus an additional pair on the left side of the mouse. By default these two extra buttons perform "forward" and "backward" functions in browsers, but they can be custom configured within individual games. The mouse also features a soft-touch, silky-smooth, rubber coated upper surface and an etched side for improved grip. The left-side of the mouse includes a small protrusion on which you can rest your thumb. A pair of buttons on the upper surface of the mouse allow you to adjust the sensitivity/dpi setting of the mouse on the fly (800, 1600, 2400, or 3400 dpi), so you can increase its speed when you need a stronger response and slow it down when you need more precision. No installation or drivers are required. Just plug it in and it works.

Monoprice encourages all attendees of CES to visit the companys exhibition booth, #70311 located in the Venetian Hotel Ballroom in Las Vegas, Nevada.
