  • Northrop Grumman Selects Wind River for Black Hawk Cockpit Digitization Program

    INTC | 10 hours ago

    Wind River®, a world leader in delivering software for intelligent connected systems, has announced that Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has selected Wind River VxWorks® 653 Platform for its latest helicopter digitization avionics mission equipment package to be integrated onto the Black Hawk UH-60V helicopter.

    Part of the Wind River product portfolio of safe and secure operating systems, VxWorks 653 is a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) platform for supporting delivery of safety-critical, integrated modular avionics (IMA) applications. It provides Northrop Grumman with a DO-178C certifiable, upgradable platform that is aligned with the latest government initiatives to reduce program lifecycle costs.

    Wind River recently released updates to VxWorks 653, including support for multi-core silicon and robust partitioning for applications that enable multilevel RTCA DO-178C certification, as well as support for the Safety Base Profile of Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) 2.1 Technical Standard.

    "Fully compliant with ARINC 653, VxWorks 653 provides customers with robust partitioning in time and space to facilitate fault containment—and enables reduced size, weight, and power, as well as a reduced bill of materials, on the industry’s most advanced aircraft," said Dinyar Dastoor, vice president and general manager of operating system platforms. "Wind River is proud to be a trusted technology supplier to Northrop Grumman for such an important program, and is very pleased to continue helping our customers drive innovation in their next-generation avionics platforms."

    "By incorporating VxWorks 653 into our mission equipment package, we have achieved a system architecture that helps protect our customers’ long term investment for multiple platforms," said Ike Song, vice president, Situational Awareness Systems at Northrop Grumman Electronic

    •Asus has released its new flagship ZenFone 2 Android phone. It’s cheaper than Xiaomi’s Mi4.
    •In spite of its 4GB of RAM, premium build, and superior camera technology, the ZenFone 2 retails for less than $300.
    •The high AnTuTu benchmark score of the ZenFone 2 confirms Intel's older x86 Atom mobile processors are as good as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 series.

    This is an update to my previous article discussing the merits of Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) winning the right to supply its 64-bit Atom Z3580 inside the ZenFone 2 from ASUSTek (OTC:ASUUY). Asus has launched the ZenFone 2 in Taiwan and the most expensive version only retails for NT$8,990 (around $284.96).

    The cheapest model of the ZenFone 2 (the ZE550CL , which only has 2GB of RAM and 1.6 GHz quad-core Atom CPU) sells for NT$4,990 ($159.17).

    I reiterate my position that Asus is the most prolific vendor of Intel-powered smartphones. The success of the ZenFone 2 is a barometer of Intel's future sales of smartphone-centric processors. Asus sold more than 8 million Intel-powered smartphones in 2014. The ZenFone 2 could be another tailwind that could help Intel catch up with Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM).

    Source: ASUSTek

    ASUSTek's smartphone sales in Taiwan last year was already outperforming that of HTC (OTC:HTCXF) and Samsung (OTC:SSNLF). It will only take a matter of time before Asus-branded Android phones also conquer other parts of Asia. In my country, the Philippines, the Asus ZenFone 5 Lite is very popular due to its low price tag and great performance. I myself own an Asus FonePad 7 phablet (which cost me just $204) that is far better than my Galaxy S3.

    The lower than Xiaomi flagship phones price tag of the ZenFone 2 will definitely help ASUSTek achieve its 16 million sales target for smartphones this year. Asus, with the help of Intel, might just be the next Xiaomi. Since Samsung does not sell sub-$350 premium Android phones, Xiaomi and Asus will be fighting over this price point.

    Tech-savvy people will find the $284.96 price tag of the new ZenFone 2 as the better deal than Xiaomi's Mi4, which was launched today in India for 22,150 Rupees ($353.30). Below is the tech specs sheet of the top of the line ZenFone 2 ZE551ML Android 5.0 phone.

    I wouldn't trust a driverless car subject to glitches and hacking. I think it is impossible for an onboard computer to react to the wide variety of challenges a human driver can. I see it as a huge mess with insurance companies doubling or better your policy costs. Abundant law suits would close down the production and sales of the self driving cars within a year or two.

  • Intel Corp. (NASDAQ: INTC) recently lowered estimates for the first quarter and has already seen substantial selling.

    I don't think Apple or Intel commented on it. It may very well be true, but one analyst stated if it was confirmed it would be a boost to the stock.

    Personally I think people no longer trust INTEL. It has no catalysts in view and lost people's money who "bought the dips".

    I don't know how people can do well without a PC and relative decent monitor. Sure idiots can survive without them because they never tapped their potential.

    That way they would have less expensive components and top of the line function.

    Individuals and corporations, business etc can not survive without PCs.

    INTC provides Q1 update and now sees revenue of $12.8 billion (plus or minus $300 million), below its prior outlook of $13.7 billion (plus or minus $500 million). INTC attributes the lower forecast to softer PC demand related to softer business desktop sales and lower than expected customer inventory levels. We note that INTC's outlook for the data center business remains unchanged as does its 60% gross margin view. Despite the lower guidance, we think the PC supply chain will be better positioned/leaner exiting the quarter and see a more stable landscape as the year progresses.
