Expect seven-times the air traffic in 2050 increasing greenhouse gas X4 unless something radical happens. Elon Musk has made interesting statements about electric aircraft over the years. His Tesla will survive and prosper: if Tesla investors stop investing the Chinese will snap it up. Either way, somewhere down its list of priorities will be reinventing pure electric aircraft, so what does Tesla bring to the table?
The supercapacitor market has bottomed out and is now into a sustained period of strong growth. Recent actions of three giant companies not usually associated with supercapacitors illustrate why.
TeraDiode are one of the few players in the laser market manufacturing high-power direct diode laser (HPDDL) products.
A Solid Future: New Opportunities enabled by Solid State Batteries
Solid state batteries have been considered as the avenue to the next generation energy storage solutions. According to IDTechEx's research "Solid-State and Polymer Batteries 2019-2029: Technology, Patents, Forecasts, Players" www.idtechex.com/solid.
Sony - Semiconductors Division
Sony manufacture a variety of semiconductor devices including laser diodes and CMOS image sensors
Panasonic unveils transparent OLED
The transparent OLED display, which resembles a glass cabinet, is crafted from a wooden frame holding what appears to be a pane of glass. As such it blends naturally into any contemporary living space. However, the moment the device is switched on, it transforms into a vivid OLED display.
Emerging Laser Machines and Sensors Transform Vehicles and Electronics
Emerging semiconductor laser technologies are revolutionising the industrial material processing and optical sensing markets. Automotive and electronics industries are benefiting greatly from advances in laser manufacturing, 3D sensing and imaging, lidar, and industrial machine vision.
Frankfurt Laser Company
Frankfurt Laser Company are an international distributor of laser diode products and a custom laser solution provider.
Airbus, Altran and Microsoft Open the IDTechEx Show!
The IDTechEx Show! at the Estrel Convention Centre in Berlin, Germany on 10 - 11 April is the leading global event for product innovators and technology scouts. Opening the event will be two Cornerstone presentations that will cover exciting developments across these technologies.
Out of Academia, Into Industry: Printed Electronics Business
Printed, Flexible and Organic Electronics is a market worth $31.6 Billion in 2018, according to IDTechEx Research. The majority of that is for OLED displays, with glass-based versions now entering their golden age and foldable OLEDs and printed OLEDs now entering a phase of commercial growth. Then there is the near $2 Billion market for conductive ink used in many diverse applications and the $3.6 Billion market for sensors, mainly comprising of biosensors so far.
Dilemma of Automotive Vertical Integration
It is a rule-of-thumb that manufacturers should vertically integrate only when products and markets mature, so they can confidently shave off the last pennies of cost. One exception is when shortages loom: Tesla built its battery gigafactory fast using proven Panasonic technology. However, many suppliers now build battery gigafactories.
Why Tesla Bought the Supercapacitor World Leader
Tesla needs to excel in the much broader range of energy storage technologies needed for Class 8 trucks down to Tesla 3 cars to retain uniquely long range for the price.
IDTechEx Show! Agenda Live: Connecting Brands & Emerging Technologies
The IDTechEx Show! on April 10-11 in Berlin brings together eight key disruptive technologies and their customers at one venue.
