Making Memories for Industry
Industrial activity is up there among the top contributors of greenhouse emissions, which cause climate change. According to the U.N. Panel on Climate Change, we, as global community, must reduce our emissions by 45% from 2010 levels by 2030 in order to limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius and subsequently avoid the worse impacts to our planet. To do so, the industrial sector must find ways to be more environmentally sustainable with its use of resources, emission of pollutants, and production of waste This is an area where our industry, with our industrial-grade technology and applications, can help improve and make production processes more sustainable and environmentally-friendly. Automation can conserve resources Automation in the industrial sector has, in recent years, been an investment many are making for increased productivity and long-term cost reduction. Moreover, many have pointed to how automation can conserve energy and natural resources, which as a result would reduce the amount of carbon emissions industrial activities release into the environment. Namely, automating certain processes with better monitoring, control and execution can avoid any waste of resources by detecting and preventing mistakes in the production process. While many have championed automation’s role in promoting sustainability, some critics have pointed out that automation and the resulting efficiency and productivity could in fact lead to overproduction and thus more waste. This concern is legitimate. We can see in fashion how sewing robots have accelerated the pace of fast fashion, making manufacturing more expedient and thus allowing brands to produce new collections faster. The downside of this is that the waste produced, for which fast fashion is infamous, grows as a result. AI can prevent overproduction Since technology is the one creating this problem, it is fitting that technology can offer a solution. In the case of fast fashion, many are advocating the use of artificial intelligence and big data to predict trends, anticipate consumer behavior and avoid unnecessary production of clothes that will not sell. Other sectors that put out consumer products can adopt the same approach. Microsoft News highlighted how Dutch whey protein producer, DVNutrition, implemented the use of AI in its production process to avoid any waste. According to the report, DVNutrition used data-driven insights and predictive analytics to inform decisions to “slow down and even stop production just as its storage tanks fill up” so that it would not overproduce. Such technological applications require both software and hardware technology to be of a certain standard to be effective in conserving resources used. This is where we in the industrial PC market come in. Smart robotics, a prime example of factory automation and AI, shows how software and hardware go hand-in-hand for a high-functioning application. The software may allow the robot to engage in deep learning and know how to make decisions, but the hardware, especially the data storage and processing modules, ensures that these processes happen without any lags or glitches. The precision that many robotic applications have come to possess are a direct result of advancements in both software and hardware.
Space constraints is one of the biggest challenges for embedded modules. As application devices have gotten smaller, embedded modules have had to shrink in size as well. Cervoz offers a range of embedded modules, equipped with the latest TLC technology, that comes in varying slim and compact form factors to accommodate your space constraints. The two newest additions to the Titan Series are the Half Size mSATA and SATA Disk. Cervoz designed them according to the needs reflected by the industry for more compact form factor and versatile mounting. All products under the Titan Series come in both standard temperature (0˚C~70˚C) and wide temperature (-40˚C~85˚C) versions, so they can operate in the environment you need them to.

Digital infrastructure is made up of the hardware and software that create an ecosystem of connected and communicating machines and devices. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for solid digital infrastructure is more apparent than ever. Whether it is monitoring, tracking or responding to detected coronavirus cases, governments rely on their digital infrastructure, as much as their health care professionals, to contain the pandemic in these dire times. The basics of digital infrastructure When we think of infrastructure, the first things that come to mind are likely roads and bridges. This is actually a good way to understand digital infrastructure—thinking of it as the connectors of the digital world. After all, so much of technology is about the transmission of data from one place to another and then using the data in applications to solve problems. Some of the basic, physical structures that are essential components of digital infrastructure are telecom towers, data centers, and even end-user devices. Meanwhile, the Internet, the Cloud and networks make up the non-physical aspects of this ecosystem. A digital line of defense In what has been dubbed the “digital age,” we all know how important digital infrastructure is to our lives. Everything from the GPS system in our cars to online shopping is an example or a result of the presence of digital infrastructure. In the context of COVID-19, digital infrastructure can act as a digital line of defense against the spread of the virus. With a good monitoring and reporting system set up, a few key countries have been able to keep their COVID cases and deaths to a minimum. Take Taiwan for example, where Cervoz is headquartered. Taiwan has gone over 200 days without a locally transmitted case, and the government has credited what it calls the “Taiwan Model” for this success. A key component of the model is, as outlined on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website, the use of technology to build a “multilayered epidemic containment network. Briefly put, Taiwan is using QR codes to facilitate the filling out of traveler information, phone signals to monitor those in quarantine, and AI and big data to assist physicians with diagnosing the disease. With these tech applications, Taiwan is a prime example of how good digital infrastructure can make meeting such an unexpected challenge more effective. Of course, Taiwan is not the only place where such a digital line of defense has been implemented to successful results. All around the world actually governments are turning to apps as a means for tracking and reporting of potential cases of the virus. Both China and South Korean have used app-reporting systems to much success. This is just the beginning Moving forward, governments and corporations should invest heavily in digital infrastructure in order to make the most of what technology has to offer, especially with 5G technology rolling out. Whether it’s COVID-19 containment, traffic control, virtual schooling, or AR/VR entertainment, all of these possibilities rely on steady and stable digital infrastructure. At this point, to not invest in digital infrastructure would be like not investing in roads and bridges—it just doesn’t make sense.
3D NAND is the latest in flash memory technology that has significantly increased performance and capacity for each unit of cell. While 2D NAND builds a flat, one-story cell structure, 3D NAND takes advantage of the space above, building a vertical structure that can therefore accomplish more. With 3D NAND flash, the SSD performs faster and better while consuming less power and costing less per GB. 3D NAND is developed and designed to overcome the limitations of current planar technology, accomplishing the aforementioned advantages without sacrificing product reliability.
