PPCA is a global association dedicated to the ongoing creation and distribution of technical and application information on plastic pipes system in order to educate and expand their safe, cost effective and sustainable use. Pipes were extruded using both approaches and properties were evaluated per the relevant ASTM and ISO standards for water and gas pressure pipe applications to compare the performance of extruded pipes. The results show that when high quality pipes are produced, the performance of pipes made via either in-line compounding or a pre-compound, is equivalent. The catalyst is based on two different metallocene components, whereas one component doesn't incorporate any co-monomer and the other component shows a typical homogenous co-monomer distribution.

Arteris IP helps engineers design the wires. At the recent Linley Fall Processor Conference, the company announced several upgrades for its licensable network-on-a-chip NoC technology, including some AI features.
Although the upgrades are useful for designing the interconnects on any chip, some features are particularly useful for processing deep neural networks DNNs. For example, a new intelligent multicast feature enables a source such as a CPU to simultaneously broadcast the same data to multiple destinations such as memory-mapped coprocessors.
In a multicore AI chip, it can distribute DNN-training weights and image-map updates to multiple cores at different memory addresses.
Your teenagers are safely home, but do you know where your cows are? Tracking farm animals is only one application for a low-power location device that employs a global navigation satellite system GNSS. Others include cargo logistics, smart-city infrastructure, remote patient monitors, and any mobile IoT client.
But conventional GNSS positioning may use too much energy for a small battery-powered tracking device. It's licensable intellectual property IP for chip designers that's based on previous Ensigma designs for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
At the recent Linley Fall Processor Conference, the company announced three new variants that omit some features to reduce cost and power. The LSA follows a new company strategy.
Although NXP has always offered industrial processors and microcontrollers, networking was the main target for the high-performance QorIQ line. More recently, the convergence of wired and wireless communications with industrial automation is opening new opportunities while the company's sales decline in the network-infrastructure market.
The new trend is called "Industrial IoT" or "Industry 4. Comparison of three embedded processors for industrial applications: This model accesses DRAM through external buffer chips, which provide industry-leading memory bandwidth and capacity for enterprise servers that handle large workloads.
They provide less bandwidth but are better suited to lower-cost systems such as web servers that handle threads with modest memory requirements. By offering Power9 products with both types of memory subsystems, IBM is targeting a wide range of servers with the same basic chip design.
Power9 offers the best per-core performance of any server processor.
SPECint benchmark comparison. Comparison of high-end server processors:The aim of this work was to develop a sensory method as the objective measure of quality of the fishes at all the key stages of fishery chain, from catch to consumer.
The Quality Index Method (QIM) is based on a structured scaling for quality measurements and provides accurate and precise.

NATS Holdings, formerly National Air Traffic Services and commonly referred to as NATS, is the main Air Navigation Service Provider in the United Kingdom. It inherited the traditions of UK air traffic control, which (founded over Croydon Airport) was the world's first air traffic control regime.
