Microwave Tube Market Size Still Over US$1 Billion for 2018

first_imgWhile microwave and millimeter wave high-power vacuum electron devices (VEDs) remain “below the radar” of many industry observers, the total available market (TAM) for this segment is still over US$1 billion for 2018. These findings are from ABI Research’s Microwave and Millimeter Wave High-Power Vacuum Electron Devices market data report.Despite their size, and although these tubes remain essential elements in specialized military, scientific/medical, and space communications applications, this market is generally under-reported and poorly understood by those not directly involved in it.Essentially, this continues to be a stable industry despite several rounds of consolidation in the past decade. However, one competitive RF semiconductor technology – gallium nitride – will change the landscape. While it is not yet near monopolizing the microwave RF power industry, GaN is advancing steadily and is a technology that should be closely watched, as it will be a threat to some aspects of the microwave and millimeter wave VED marketplace.The size of this historic market continues to surprise and its longevity and firm resistance to RF power semiconductor encroachment is just as surprising; however, that will change to some degree as GaN devices move up in frequency and power.More information about these findings can be seen in the ABI Research Report – Microwave and Millimeter Wave High-Power Vacuum Electron Devices market data report.last_img read more

Forward Eden Hazard has constantly been linked with a move to Real Madrid as soon as this month, and with the injuries sustained by Chelsea in various positions over the course of their last few games, the club try to find a way to solve their problems.Amongst the most favored and probable signings for the club, midfielder Nicolo Barella is a prime target as head coach Maurizio Sarri wishes to replace Fabregas this month and sources have confirmed that Barella is on their radar, although uncertainty looms over the Italian’s move to London. Barella’s club have asked for a fee of £45 million for their player, and Chelsea remain in the hunt for him as Inter and Napoli chase not far behind.Advertisement However, the signing of a striker remains the club’s top priority as Alvaro Morata has failed to impress, and in lieu of the same, AC Milan ace Gonzalo Higuain is reported to solve the problem for Chelsea, who is currently on loan from Juventus. But the club will look to buy the Argentine forward on a permanent basis for a £32m fee.Read also:-Advertisement Cesc Fabregas celebrates 500 games in the EPLOlivier Giroud injury puts Chelsea ‘in trouble’ – SarriEden Hazard to Real Madrid may finally become a reality this year Advertisementlast_img read more

Building Better Solutions for Healthcare

first_imgOn October 17th, Intel is hosting an Immersion Day event at the Connected Health Conference in Boston that we’re calling “SOLVE: Healthcare—Building Better Solutions With Technologies that Matter.”Building on our inaugural SOLVE: Healthcare event hosted by UCSF on March 21st, we—along with leading healthcare delivery organizations and startups—will reiterate and expand upon common themes from the earlier conference. We’ll explore:Taking the digital foundation that has finally emerged in healthcare and transforming this from a “system of record” into a “system of insight.”Moving beyond being “data rich but insight poor” in healthcare.Using predictive AI to prevent chronic care conditions from turning into acute care situations.We’ll also expand our focus to the edges of healthcare, where patients engage with the healthcare system at three different points of care: Bedside, home, and specialty care. The intersection of IoT, AI, and healthcare VR are transforming the edges of healthcare with new insights and are fundamentally altering the point-of-care experience for doctors and patients.Healthcare Analytics at the BedsideReal-time monitoring and AI are transforming the hospital bedside and making costly complications a thing of the past. This is enabling early detection of some of the most common complications that contribute the most to additional hospital costs and increases in length of stay. Doctors can get real-time access to vital point-of-care information and analytics-based alerts for these costly conditions. This enables physicians to spend more time with patients instead of reviewing information.The ICU, for instance, generates a huge amount of patient data. Most of these samples are taken infrequently and must be approved by a nurse, and the information is often low-fidelity and prone to error. And, despite the huge amount of patient data, less than one percent of it is actually available beyond the bedside or within the EHR.Intel’s collaborative partners are putting to work the 99 percent of previously ignored patient data in clinical decision-making with new FDA-cleared intelligence platforms that store all these signals directly from bedside monitors so physicians can get an accurate and complete picture of a trend in patient physiology.Home Care and TelehealthRemote patient monitoring is transforming the way patients are engaged and is making home care the new standard of care. AccuHealth is going after chronic illnesses with an innovative, preventive home-based remote care approach. Chronic illness is responsible for 86% of annual healthcare expenditures in the United States.In Chile, where AccuHealth is based, the average cost of an ER visit ranges anywhere from $50 to $3,000, and the average cost of a day in the hospital starts at $1,800. Costs soar even higher with each care-related procedure and treatment performed. To help prevent these acute events and keep chronic illnesses in check, AccuHealth has developed a patient-centric healthcare model that shifts reactionary, facility-based care to preventive home-based remote care.Using wearable sensors linked to a smart Intel-based monitoring device that connects to the AccuHealth virtual hospital remote monitoring center, patients perform three-to-five-minute “check-ups” throughout the day from the comfort of their homes. Patient data is sent in real-time to a data center where powerful Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors apply data mining and predictive modeling to identify issues so they can be addressed before they escalate. In the event of any alarming shifts, caregivers proactively intervene before an ER visit or hospitalization is required.AccuHealth’s results are promising. They recently monitored 15,000 patients and drove a 42% decrease in ER visits, reducing costs to insurers by up to 50% per patient.Specialty Care TransformedAI, visual computing, and virtual reality are transforming neurosurgery, radiology, and soon pathology. Not only does this result in improved outcomes and improved patient satisfaction, but doctors are more satisfied with their work, too.Surgical Theater creates an enterprise-wide virtual reality medical visualization platform called Precision VR. They take MRI and CT scan images of patient brain/body parts and fuse that together to create immersive 3D environments that are transforming patient education and engagement. This also delivers next-generation surgical planning and navigation capabilities.Patient satisfaction is important. Up to two percent of reimbursement costs in 2017 was lost or gained based on patient satisfaction. Patients can rate their experience via the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey. Results can create new incentives for hospitals to improve quality of care and affect medicare reimbursement and private investment. Shared decision-making between patient and doctor has been shown to reduce the cost of care for patients with preference-sensitive conditions. Engaged patients cost less.This is only a small peek into what we’ll dive into at the SOLVE: Healthcare event. Several other healthcare organizations are using technology in new and unexpected ways. They’re improving and sometimes even saving lives while building a new foundation for healthcare.last_img read more

Ready for CAG or judicial probe: Kalmadi

first_imgCornered by allegations of corruption in the Commonwealth Games’ preparations and isolated within his own party, under-fire Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi on Wednesday said he is ready to face any CAG or judicial probe into the financial transactions related to the event.”I, as Chairman of the Organising Committee, am prepared to face any scrutiny by (Comptroller and Auditor General) CAG or even a judicial probe for all financial transactions being reported by the media. All the people found guilty will be punished and brought to book,” Kalmadi said in a statement.Kalmadi’s statement came a day after more allegations of irregularities and the Indian High Commission’s e-mails being ‘doctored’ came to light. The Congress party also distanced itself from Pune MP.Kalmadi reiterated that the all transactions were carried out by the full approval of the OC’s various finance committee and he did not have any individual say on these matters.”The financial procedures at the Organising Committee are well laid down and transparent. Any proposal that is prepared by the Functional Area Head first gets vetted by the OC Finance Committee which has two representatives of Government of India, and after that it is referred to Finance Sub-Committee, comprising of three Senior representatives of Government of India,” he explained.”Thereafter, the proposals are submitted to the Executive Board for its final approval. Chairman OC, in his individual capacity, does not have any financial powers,” he added.Kalmadi said, nonetheless, he has taken note of the various reported bunglings. . “60 days are left for the start of XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 to be held in New Delhi and 43 days for Games Village to open when about 8000 athletes and Officials from all continents of the world start arriving to participate in the Games,” Kalmadi said. “During the last week, media has come out with various stories regarding the irregularities in the orders/ procurement etc. of QBR Launch Function at London/Overlays and association of M/S Sports Marketing and Management (SMAM) in obtaining the Sponsorship for the games.advertisement”I have taken a serious note of these reports and appointed a three member committee headed by Mr. Jarnail Singh, the Chief Executive Officer and two members, Mr. G. C.Chaturvedi, Special Director General and Ms. Gurjot Kaur Chief Vigilance Officer of Organising Committee to look into all the details of QBR Launch Function, Overlays and SMAM issues. The Committee has been asked to submit its report by August 5, 2010,” the statement read.The Indian Olympic Association chief was left red-faced on Tuesday when the Ministry of External Affairs said that the e-mails from the Indian High Commission that he made public to justify huge payments to a UK-based firm were ‘doctored’.His back against the wall, Kalmadi has been isolated in the OC as well with some his own colleagues demanding an emergency meeting to discuss allegations of corruption, which have also been highlighted in a Central Vigilance Commission report.last_img read more
