Box also announced expanded support for its developer ecosystem, including new and improved developer tools and a new incubator program in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Huge investments in R&D for touchscreen displays

Our digital ever-connected world is increasingly very demanding, in terms of content, challenges, user-experience and threats. 
In the touchscreen displays industry for instance, growing demand for energy efficient touchscreen displays and rising demand for high degree of picture clarity and brightness are driving huge investments in R&D for touchscreen displays.
A momentum that is propelling the growth of touchscreen display market across the world.

The touchscreen display technology in India

Globally, the touchscreen display market is on an exciting curve with rising demand from various end users such as consumer electronics, healthcare, retail, automotive, BFSI, etc. 
India touchscreen display market particularly has witnessed robust growth over the last few years, with increasing adoption of advanced technology based touchscreen devices such as smartphones and tablets, expanding ATM network and growing internet user base. 
According to Research and Markets, rising government focus towards building high class infrastructure facilities, increasing investment for improvement of public infrastructure, and growing adoption of interactive digital signage and multi-touchscreens in public spaces are further anticipated to fuel touchscreen market in India in the coming years.

Google, IBM, Lyft, Firefox, LinkedIn, Facebook and Uber’s considerations on Swift programming language

One can easily observe that, Swift, since launching publicly at Apple’s WWDC in 2014, Swift has soared in popularity amongst programmers and has caught the attention of other major technology players in the process.
Google is now considering implementing Swift as a “first class” language for Android, while Facebook and Uber are exploring ways to make Swift more central to their operations.
Apple, IBM, Lyft, Firefox, LinkedIn and others have adopted Swift into their critical-projects. Swift is now available to the open source community. A new approach that accelerates its popularity.

CxSAST as a new Support for Swift Programming Language Vulnerability Detection and Remediation

Swift, one of the fastest growing programming languages is now at the core of multiple business-critical applications within majors companies. An exciting momentum drawn by millions of developers across the world. 
Checkmarx joins the dynamic with its Swift language support, providing Checkmarx users with the ability to identify and mitigate security, quality and compliance issues in their Swift code before it reaches production.
Checkmarx’s Source Code Analysis solution, CxSASTscans Swift code for a wide range of potential vulnerabilities including high-level security threats such as SQL injections (SQLi), reflected XSS, buffer overflows, stored XSS and others.

Wowza Streaming Engine™ software on the Alibaba Cloud platform for Chinese markets

Rapid scalability and delivery of streaming applications at the center of stakes with the new partnership between Wowza Media Systems™, and Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group.
The partnership brings up new capabilities to rapidly scale video streaming applications across Chinese markets on the Alibaba Cloud’s platform.

CMOS image sensor based on CCD technology for high-performance applications

The best of both technologies is at the core of stakes at IMEC, a Belgium-based nanoelectronics research center that claimed to have developed a CMOS image sensor based on CCD technology for high-performance applications. 
One can learn that, it is developed by embedding CCD in CMOS time delay integration (TDI) image sensor. The integration is done by combining CCD's low-noise performance with fast readouts of CMOS image sensor. 
A TDI imager is used to synchronize the linear motion of the scene with multiple samplings of the same object to increase the signal-to-noise ratio. 
For those who are unfamiliar, the signal-to-noise ratio is a measurement that is used to compare the level of the desired signal to background noise. The higher the signal-to-noise ratio, lower the distortion in the image. 
According to Technavio, these advances in CMOS image sensors will lead to higher adoption of camera modules.

CMOS Camera technology Vs CCD sensors

Smartphones and tablets are now at the core of our digital experiences so that, these smart devices need streamlined technologies, and intuitive user experience at each level. 
Both CMOS Camera technology and CCD sensors have certainly their role to play on this momentum. 
Then, one can observe a steady shift from CCD sensors to CMOS sensors that is increasingly irreversible as CMOS technology is simple and has low manufacturing cost.
In fact, if CCD sensor is superior regarding light sensitivity and quality, it has many complications related to design and consumes immense power.
Therefore, CMOS image sensor is widely preferred over CCD sensor, due to better picture quality; Improved low-light performance; Reduction in height of camera modules; High adoption of flip-chip camera modules, to name a few.
CMOS camera module market projected to reach USD 42.88 billion by 2020, posting a CAGR of almost 18% until 2020, according to Technavio.

ZEROCELL™ Smart Energy Storage Appliance as nerve systems for homes, buildings and block-chain neighborhoods

Based on the reality that, electricity is more and more expensive, and that you deserve enhanced quality of life today by protecting the environment for future generations, through smart, safe, secure energy that is affordable, The ZEROCELL is a multi-functional appliance that stores and manages energy generated from either on-site-harvested energy or from off-site renewable energy transmitted by the electric grid. 
The ZEROCELLs (4KW, 8KW, 12KW and 16 KW) are multi-functional appliances that are all-in-one energy storage essential for homes, buildings and block-chain neighborhoods. 
One can observe that, the nanobattery can offer a life span of 12-18 years and up to 6,000 charges. The ZEROCELL is recyclable, and batteries do not leak and are non-flammable.
