Dialog Semiconductor unveils 2D to 3D video conversion chip for smartphones, tablets

Dialog Semiconductor, a provider of integrated display, audio and power management semiconductor offerings, has unveiled a real time 2D to 3D video conversion chip DA8223 for portable devices, including smartphones and tablet PCs.

The company said the device also integrates a parallax barrier screen driver that lets users view 3D content without the need for glasses.

The IC analyses each 2D video frame and creates a layered depth map, isolating foreground and background objects, and from this, each original image pixel is mapped into left and right eye pixels that, when viewed through a parallax barrier filter on the display module, renders the 3D image directly.

The DA8223 integrates the complete 3D conversion process, which means there is no extra load on the host application processor and no external memory requirement.

Dialog Semiconductor VP corporate development and strategy Mark Tyndall said using the DA8223 their customers can, without compromising battery life, create a truly unique offering; products with immediate access to unlimited 3D content.

Tyndall added, "The hardware based 2D-3D conversion technology requires virtually no software development and uses a tiny fraction of the battery and compute power of competing application processor based software-approaches."

Compatible with 3D capable displays from 3.8 inch smartphones up to 10 inch tablet PCs, the DA8223 supports still images and video at 60fps and able to display 3D content in both portrait and landscape formats in real-time.

The 5x5mm 81-ball UFBGA chip can be mounted on the PCB, between the application processor and 3D display, or on the display module as a chip-on-flex.

The company said that device samples will be available early in 2011, and expects mass production from the second half of 2011.

Google launches new plug-in to sync MS Office with Docs

Google has launched a new plug-in for Microsoft Office called Cloud Connect that enables users to sync and access their documents through Google Docs, which provides real-time collaboration in the browser, with no software to install, manage or upgrade.

Users of Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 can sync their Office documents to the Google cloud for free, without ever leaving Office.

Once synced, documents are backed-up, given a unique URL, and can be accessed from anywhere (including mobile devices) at any time through Google Docs.

Once in the Google cloud, documents can be shared and even simultaneously edited by multiple people, from right within Office, according to Google.

A full revision history is kept as the files are edited, and users can revert to earlier versions in one click.

Users having Google account as well as users through the Google Apps hosted collaboration and communication suite will be able to access the free plug-in.

The Cloud Connect plug-in is available for Google Apps for Business customers as part of a preview programme.

Group product manager Shan Sinha wrote in Google's enterprise blog that unfortunately due to the lack of support for open APIs on Microsoft Office for Mac, they are unable to make Google Cloud Connect available on Macs at this time.

"We look forward to when that time comes so we can provide this feature to our Mac customers as well," Sinha said.

Just Have Fun and Enjoy Your Life!!

We all complain about our lives from time to time. An unexpected expense comes up or we get laid off from our jobs. So many things can happen to us in even just one day. Unfortunately, complaining is a waste of time. It is a grown up version of whining, and yes, we too have tantrums. The key to enjoying life is in how we react to the events and mishaps in our daily lives.

El mejor antivirus del mundo

En la primera mitad de año, se han registrado más de un millón de nuevos programas maliciosos, un 50% más que en el mismo periodo del año pasado.

No obstante, a tenor del último informe de AV-Comparatives respecto a la eficacia de los antivirus, los ciudadanos pueden estar tranquilos.

La nueva versión 2011 de G Data AntiVirus ha conseguido el mejor ratio de detección de malware (99,9 por ciento) frente a una muestra con más de 900.000 programas maliciosos donde se incluían troyanos, bots, puertas traseras, gusanos, virus o scripts.

No obstante, muy cerca de estos resultados se encuentran las antivirus de otras empresas del sector como Avira AntiVir Premium (99.8%) TrustPort AV (99.8%) o McAfee AntiVirus Plus (99,4%), con unos ratios de eficacia muy similares.

Por el contrario, Kingsoft AV es el programa de seguridad que cierra la clasificación y el más alejado de estas cifras, con un 80,1% de eficacia.

Entre medias de este ránking, otros antivirus como Kaspersky AV (98,3%) o Microsoft Security Essentials (97,6%).

Para este estudio, la organización austriaca AV-Comparatives ha contado con 20 fabricantes de soluciones de seguridad y el número de programas maliciosos utilizados asscendió a 917.292.
