Zilog, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ:IXYS) and a pioneer supplier of application-specific, embedded microcontroller (MCU) system-on-chip (SoC) solutions for industrial and consumer power management applications, announces Issue 12 of its informative quarterly newsletter. The Channel, one of Zilog’s key information services, is offered to designers, application engineers, and developers everywhere. The global technology forecast for motion sensors shows increased demand and application. Many “green” applications are leveraging sensing and control, and yet while North America and Europe have included sensing and control for years, the Asia-Pacific and ROW markets are both considered to be high-growth market opportunities. There are numerous applications for motion sensor-enabled products such as security, energy management, lighting, smart phones and tablets, industrial machines, medical equipment, interactive displays, product promotion, and defense and military weaponry. This increasing demand for motion sensor technology has influenced many companies to develop motion sensor products, even to include applications in the infotainment and entertainment services sectors. Across these industries, opportunities are being created for software companies to increase their markets by providing new solutions for the many potential products in this segment. This segment is a good fit for Zilog, which has been developing its diversified line of ZMOTION embedded software products. ZMOTION is a powerful and flexible technology that is well suited for penetration into the markets listed above, and Zilog sees many new usage models in which motion sensing is a prospect. Issue 12 of The Channel discusses these prospects. It is the microcontroller developer’s direct line for the most current information for product highlights, technical tips and new application notes directly from Zilog. The Channel features current perspectives and product information, with many insights that are useful to the development industry when implementing new designs. The Channel is also loaded with useful insights, and arrives complete with embedded hot links that take readers directly to information they are interested in accessing quickly. This compelling newsletter series is quite contemporary and easy to view. It is available in flash format from the Quick Links section on the www.zilog.com home page as “The Channel.” All issues offer helpful time-saving implementation tips and tricks, and past issues are available in the Channel Archive.
