Samsung Solid-State Drives

eiodotcom —  February 15, 2013 — Leave a comment

Today’s EIO post is on Samsung’s new energy-efficient solid-state drives (SSDs).

Samsung Solid-State Drives Overview

The gold standard in speed, capacity, and dependability.

Samsung-SSD

 

Increase energy efficiency while avoiding drive wear and tear

Samsung’s flash-based SSDs help maintain 24 x 7 uptime for mission-critical servers, RAID systems, and network-attached storage. For mobile devices, Samsung SSDs offer small form factor and light weight, together with low power consumption in active and idle modes to lengthen battery life. Because SSDs have no moving parts, they start up instantly and are not subject to the physical wear and tear that can gradually degrade the reliability of traditional hard disk drives.

 

Design advantages of Samsung SSDs include:

 

  • Accelerated read and write operations with outstanding multitasking capabilities
  • Varied interfaces enabling connections to different types of host devices
  • Exceptional durability with high shock and vibration tolerance

Today’s EIO post is on digital photo frames. A digital photo frame (also called a digital media frame) is a picture frame that displays digital photos without the need to print them or use a computer.

Features

Digital photo frames’ common sizes range from 7 inch (17.8 cm) to 20 inch (50.8 cm), keychain-sized. Some digital photo frames can only display JPEG pictures. Most digital photo frames display the photos as a slideshow and usually with an adjustable time interval. They may also be able to send photos to a printer.

Digital photo frames typically display the pictures directly from a camera’s memory card, though certain frames also provide internal memory storage. Some allow users to upload pictures to the frame’s memory via a USB connection, or wirelessly via  Bluetooth technology. Some frames allow photos to be shared from a frame to another.

Certain frames can load pictures over the Internet from RSS feeds, photo sharing sites such as Flickr, Picasa and from e-mail. Such networked models usually support wireless (802.11) connections. Moreover, some digital frames now use cellular technology to transfer and share files easily and faster.

Most 7 inch (17.8 cm) models show images at 430 x 234 or 480 x 234 pixels. With some models the width of each landscape image is stretched to achieve an aspect ratio of 16:9, which results in noticeable distortion. Built-in speakers are common for playing video content with sound, and many frames also feature remote controls.

External Power Supplies

eiodotcom —  October 3, 2012 — Leave a comment

Today’s EIO post is on external power supplies.

 

 

External Power Supplies 101

 

External power supplies are devices that convert ac power from a wall outlet into lower voltage dc or ac power to be used directly by electronic circuits. External power supplies come in a separate physical enclosure than the end-use product, and usually provide power to the device directly through a separate cord and plug. External power supplies are used to power a variety of electronic devices, including: laptop computers, printers, cordless phones, cell phones, etc.

 

External power supplies are used both with equipment with no other source of power, and with battery-powered equipment, where the supply both charges the battery and powers the equipment when plugged in. One of the benefits of using an external, rather than internal power supply is it increases the portability of a device, by avoiding the need of internal power components. Use of an external power supply allows portability of battery-powered equipment without the added bulk of internal power components and makes it unnecessary to produce equipment for use only with a specified power source.

 

Benefits of Using an External Power Supply

Safety — External power adapters can free product designers from worrying about some safety issues. Much of this style of equipment uses only voltages low enough not to be a safety hazard internally, although the power supply must out of necessity use dangerous mains voltage. If an external power supply is used (usually via a power connector, often of coaxial type), the equipment need not be designed with concern for hazardous voltages inside the enclosure. This is particularly relevant for equipment with lightweight cases which may break and expose internal electrical parts.

Heat reduction — Heat reduces reliability and longevity of electronic components, and can cause sensitive circuits to become inaccurate or malfunction. A separate power supply removes a source of heat from the apparatus.

Electrical noise reduction — Because radiated electrical noise falls off with the square of the distance, it is to the manufacturer’s advantage to convert potentially noisy AC line power or automotive power to “clean”, filtered DC in an external adapter, at a safe distance from noise-sensitive circuitry.

Weight and size reduction — When most power adapters featured simple mains-frequency transformer-based designs, they were quite heavy and large, and added considerably to the weight and bulk of devices designed to be lightweight. Even modern power supplies are relatively heavy compared to other circuitry. Removing power components from equipment powered by rechargeable batteries reduces the weight and size which must be carried, though use of other rechargeable batteries like sealed lead-acid batteries can questionably put more weight on the equipment.

Ease of replacement — Power supplies are more prone to failure than other circuitry due to their exposure to power spikes and their internal generation of waste heat. External power supplies can be replaced quickly by a user without the need to have the powered device repaired.

Configuration versatility — Externally powered electronic products can be used with different power sources as needed (e.g. 120VAC, 240VAC, 12VDC, or external battery pack), for convenient use in the field, or when traveling.
