Biometric voice systems as a game-changer in car infotainment systems

More and more analysts estimate that the use of biometric voice systems can be a solution to ameliorate problems associated with operating car infotainment systems such as car audio, communications, or navigation functions. This should offer better convenience to users. Biometric voice systems are built within the in-vehicle infotainment system and help the user to interact with the system.

Key need in car infotainment system

It is increasingly obvious that, one trend in market is need or user-friendly features in rapidly expanding car infotainment system. Users report frustrations while using car infotainment systems. It seems for instance that, in-car electronics generated more problems for users of cars from Cadillac, Ford, and Honda.

Increased adoption of 3G and 4G Internet deeply impacting the Global Mobile Tracking Software Market

The link is now established; one of the major drivers for the Global Mobile Tracking Software Market is increased adoption of 3G and 4G Internet. In effect, technological advances, such as cloud, innovative communication channels, such as messaging and social networks, and 3G, and 4G Internet is widely well-appreciated among young population. These technologies facilitate the end-users to perform their daily tasks in an effective manner. According to Research and Markets, in developed countries, mobile operators are investing heavily to expand the 3G and 4G networks.

The Samsung Exynos 8895 for enhanced security solutions required for mobile payments

Another exciting realization with the Exynos 8895, which has a separate processing unit for enhanced security solutions required for mobile payments that use iris or fingerprint recognition as well as an embedded Vision Processing Unit (VPU) that can recognize and analyze items or movements for improved video tracking, panoramic image processing, and machine vision technology.

Powerful GPU and multi-format codec (MFC), video processing technology within new Samsung Exynos 8895

Very interesting to see that, the Exynos 8895 also delivers unsurpassed multimedia experience with its powerful GPU and multi-format codec (MFC) as well as next level 3D graphic performance that minimizes latency for 4K UHD VR and gaming experience with ARM®’s latest Mali™-G71 GPU. In addition, with its advanced MFC, the processor supports video recording and playback at a maximum resolution of 4K UHD at 120fps. It also comes with video processing technology that enables a higher quality experience by enhancing the image quality; for example, for VR (Virtual Reality) applications, the Exynos 8895 delivers a realistic and immersive VR video experience at 4K resolution.

The new Samsung Exynos 8895 is an octa-core processor + Samsung Coherent Interconnect (SCI) technology

Definitely, the new Samsung Exynos 8895 is an octa-core processor, comprising of four of Samsung’s 2nd generation custom designed CPU cores for improved performance and power efficiency in addition to four Cortex®-A53 cores. With Samsung Coherent Interconnect (SCI) technology, the latest processor integrates a heterogeneous system architecture that allows faster computing for a wide range of applications such as artificial intelligence, and deep learning.

Samsung Exynos 9 Series Processor Built on 10nm FinFET Process Technology

At the core of stakes, we have power efficiency, great performance, next generation smartphones, VR headsets, and automotive infotainment system. This premium application processor (AP), the Exynos 9 Series 8895 is Samsung’s first processor chipset to take advantage of the most advanced and industry leading 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology with improved 3D transistor structure. According to Samsung, this allows up to 27% higher performance while consuming 40% less power when compared to 14nm technology. I can also observe that, the new Exynos 9 Series 8895 embeds a gigabit LTE modem that supports five carrier aggregation, or 5CA. It can deliver fast and stable data throughput at max.1Gbps (Cat.16) downlink with 5CA and 150Mbps (Cat.13) uplink with 2CA.

Tower servers are mainly used in the stand-alone form

Definitely, Tower servers are mainly used in the stand-alone form, and provide cooling and scalability provisions. They have fairly complex cabling and are mainly compatible with high-end servers. According to Technavio, SMEs are the main end-users of these towers. Many tier 1 and tier 2 data centers from underdeveloped countries are also adopting these servers as they are available at affordable price points.

Blade servers Vs rack servers in our ever-connected data-driven era

For those who are unfamiliar, Blade servers are extremely compact and designed to be installed with chassis. The support infrastructure required for blade servers are supplied by the chassis, and their performance is comparable to that of rack servers. The blade servers have relatively simple cabling, have better load balancing, and are very efficient through integrated Ethernet and fiber channel switches. Additionally, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) looking to co-locate racks will mainly opt for this type of servers.

Rack servers in our ever-connected data-driven era

Rack servers remain at the center of stakes as traditional data center servers that contribute significantly toward the growth of the data center server market through continuous innovations by vendors and component manufacturers. In effect, most of the enterprise data centers currently in operation opt for rack servers. The adoption of these servers will continue to increase because of the enterprise preference and expertise in operating these servers, pushed by continuous innovations in compute power and energy efficiency by vendors.

The rising number of hyper-scale data centers for analytic applications

For those who are unfamiliar, Servers are the backbone of a data center operation and are primarily used for the transfer of data over computer networks. The rising number of hyper-scale data centers for analytic applications such as big data analytics is on an interesting curve to be a key driving factor for the data center server market. Global data center server market is projected to reach USD 56 billion, growing at a CAGR of close to 5% uitl 2021, according to Technavio.
