Earth Observation Analysis Service powered by SAP HANA®



BARCELONA, Spain, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today, in cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA), announced the Earth Observation Analysis service, a cloud service powered by the SAP HANA® platform. The two organizations have been working together since early 2016, facilitating access to a new field of business opportunities in the geospatial context. They have done this by combining the power of SAP HANA with ESA’s accurate, timely, and easily accessible Earth observation data, especially from the Copernicus program. Today at SAP® TechEd Barcelona, reinsurance company Munich Re showcases its use of the Earth Observation Analysis service for gaining insights and predicting potential future impact from historic and current data.

“Every year, wildfires affect nature, people, their homes and businesses,” said Andreas Siebert, Head of Geospatial Solutions, Munich Re. “While the progress of a fire itself is hard to predict, this new service from SAP, leveraging satellite data from ESA, allows us to accurately calculate costs and risks related to wildfires and even gain insights into the future probability of wildfires. This will help us to keep costs down for our clients.”

Powered by SAP HANA, the Earth Observation Analysis service provides a standardized interface for quick, easy consumption of detailed analytics and clusters them according to customer needs. Government agencies and companies active in all industries, from insurance and reinsurance to mill products, mining, utilities, and retail, can leverage the application programming interface (API) delivered through the Earth Observation Analysis service. Based on continuous access to historical and real-time satellite data from around the world, they can make improved business decisions concerning elementary industry-specific questions. Questions may include where to place new power lines, where to build a new store or when to harvest crops. Ultimately, the service helps business users and data scientists reduce the complexity of obtaining reliable insights.

“Our partnership with ESA paves the way to a new field of geospatial business applications, making it possible to close the gap between traditional Earth observation and a digitalized business world,” said Dr. Carsten Linz, Business Development Officer and Global Head, Center for Digital Leadership, SAP. “That opens a bright future for space-related applications, such as digital farming, gas pipeline management, and the improved planning of smart cities – bringing businesses to a competitive edge, creating new high-tech jobs and improving peoples’ lives.”

Josef Aschbacher, Director, Earth Observation, ESA, said, “The European Sentinel satellites are the largest providers of Earth observation data worldwide. A major challenge is to convert this fantastic data into customer-specific information. Large-scale hosted processing is the next step in order to meet this challenge, thereby bringing users to the data rather than data to the users.”

ESA will benefit from the in-memory computing power of the SAP HANA platform to make Earth observation data consumable both through the newly available Earth Observation Analysis service as well as in urban and environmental use cases or even beyond in the future.

The Earth Observation Analysis service can be tested at no cost in a nonproductive environment here from Nov. 8 until Dec. 31, 2016. The service is planned to be generally available in the first quarter of 2017. It will then be offered with a consumption-based pricing model that depends on the number of API calls. A set of related microservices, also powered by SAP HANA, will help entrepreneurs, partners, customers and businesses augment and build highly flexible solutions based on SAP HANA and Earth observation data from ESA in the future. SAP and ESA intend to continue their collaboration in developing solutions and technologies based on SAP technology that leverages geospatial information.

SAP today also unveiled SAP HANA 2, the next generation of the SAP HANA platform optimized for innovation. SAP HANA 2 includes and extends the proven technology from the SAP’s breakthrough in-memory computing platform to help organizations address the fast-changing requirements of digital business.

First Device in Family to Implement "Flexible Power Islands"



MUNICH, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Silego Technology announces the SLG46125, further expanding the GreenPAKTM (GPAK) family of Programmable Mixed-signal ICs. This newest GPAK can serve as an ultra-small power management IC which contains a rich set of features, including voltage monitoring, power sequencing, reset and power switches that are configurable in settings and interconnect.  This device is the first in a series of parts designed to create “Flexible Power Islands” (FPI).

Silego originally made this announcement at a press conference held in advance of electronica, “the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Electronic Components, Systems and Applications,” in Munich, Germany. At this conference, Silego made several other announcements that we believe reinforces Silego’s position as a market leader in Configurable Mixed-signal and Power solutions with advanced system protection features.

There are many challenges when designing power systems for handheld and wearable devices.  In each succeeding generation, power systems are becoming more complex, and yet the overall board area devoted to power components keeps getting smaller.  To overcome these challenges, Silego has developed the concept of “Flexible Power Islands”.  Using FPIs, designers can divide their complex power system into some number of local power regions (or islands), each of which includes the power control, power sequencing and power regulation needed to support loads in the immediate vicinity.  We believe this technique results in higher performance and a more efficient solution that can be flexibly tailored to the requirements of each individual system.

With the SLG46125, Silego has captured many of these necessary power system functions (power monitoring, sequencing, reset and power switching) in a tiny 1.6 x 2.0 mm 16-pin MSTQFN fully encapsulated plastic package. Using Silego’s easy-to-use GUI based GPAK Designer™ and GPAK development hardware, designers can quickly and easily implement their unique configuration of the device, thereby customizing the functions to match their unique power requirements.

“Flexible Power Islands are just what our customers have been asking for to address their challenges in developing power systems for ever-more complex mobile devices,” states Nathan John, Director of Marketing. “We want to give customers key functions of their power system in a tiny, low cost device.  Each of these devices can service the needs of loads in a local region of the printed circuit board.  We believe this advancement in architecture will result in big gains in efficiency, while at the same time driving down cost and board space. We believe this is yet another example of how Silego’s Configurable Mixed-signal IC (CMIC) strategy provides value to customers.”

Since the introduction of the CMIC platform, Silego has developed five generations of CMIC silicon and design tools. Each generation has added functionality and enhanced the design experience. As a result, over 1,300 designs incorporating CMICs by Silego customers have gone into production in almost every end market:

Silego's Latest Configurable Mixed-signal ICs Pack Plenty of Analog & Digital Functionality in Tiny Packages



MUNICH, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Silego Technology announces three new 14-pin and three new 22-pin 2.0 x 2.2 mm GreenPAKTM Programmable Mixed-signal Matrix ICs, further expanding Silego’s industry leading platform of Configurable Mixed-signal ICs (CMICs).

Silego originally made this announcement at a press conference held in advance of electronica, “the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Electronic Components, Systems and Applications,” in Munich, Germany. At this conference, Silego made several other announcements that we believe further reinforces Silego’s position as a market leader in Configurable Mixed-signal and Power solutions with advanced system protection features.

The six new, feature-rich CMIC devices are designed to implement many system functions, such as system reset, power sequencing, voltage monitoring, and more, with minimal space and power overhead. The devices have been designed to make adding new features to highly integrated systems relatively easy with integrated, programmable analog and digital components, such as look-up tables, D-flip flops, counters, delays, analog comparators, and more.

Also included in these devices are the Asynchronous State Machine and I2C blocks. These two features add more flexibility, functionality, and ease of design to the GreenPAK family of devices. With the addition of the Asynchronous State Machine, designers can implement up to 8 unique states with zero code, zero static power, and fail-safe operation. GreenPAK I2C enables designers to change device configuration, such as analog comparator thresholds, quickly, and allows designers to act as a GPIO expander, writing digital signals to component inputs.

Like other devices in the GreenPAK family, creating custom mixed-signal projects is made simple using the GreenPAK development hardware and simple GUI interface of GreenPAK Designer, allowing engineers to quickly and easily implement new designs and respond to changing design requirements. Additionally, with these devices, designers can now perform on-board emulation and in-system debug, using I2C.

“These six new devices allow us to offer even more value in a smaller area,” states Sean Carty, Sr. Product Marketing Engineer. “We believe the amount of flexibility and features these devices provide in just 4.4 mm2 is phenomenal. Silego continues to add new and exciting products, bringing more solutions to our customers to facilitate differentiation in their products using minimal additional board space and power.”

Since the introduction of the CMIC platform, Silego has developed five generations of CMIC silicon and design tools. Each generation has added functionality and enhanced the design experience. As a result, over 1,300 designs incorporating CMICs by Silego customers have gone into production in almost every end market:

The new part numbers are the 14-pin SLG46534V, SLG46535V, and SLG46536V as well as the 22-pin SLG46533M, SLG46537M, and SLG46538M.

Widely Used Investing Social Platform StockTwits Launches MoneyBadger.com Site for Newer Investors



NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — StockTwits Inc, the largest social platform for investors and traders, launched MoneyBadger.com today, a new content site created for new and casual investors. StockTwits is well known in the retail investing and trading communities as the definitive social platform for discussing intraday market activity, with more than 200 messages posted each minute across 7,500 individual stocks and tickers.

“Every day, our social streams are full of fascinating stories of companies and stocks as told by market participants, but those stories aren’t necessarily accessible or useful in their current form to the average person,” said StockTwits CEO Ian Rosen. “Many financial news sites provide information on markets or investing, but Money Badger is the first to bring the incredibly interesting world of the trading floor, seen through the eyes of traders rather than media, to the public- and to relate that world to people’s own daily lives and goals.”

Money Badger will relate intraday market stories, provide basic investing education, and bring the stories that live in the daily StockTwits streams to life for the occasional investor or those new to trading.

“Whether it’s a crazy ride for a company whose mobile phones have a newly discovered habit of exploding, or the basics of how a bond works-  as a publication, Money Badger’s purpose is to help those who’ve never invested to learn the basics of the market, to buy their first shares of stock, and to become engaged with the fascinating market stories that evolve each day,” said Scott Steinhardt, Editor. “We make business news easily digestible and relatable, with an added touch of savvy and humor.”

Money Badger content is available at moneybadger.com, on Facebook at facebook.com/gomoneybadger, and on Twitter at @gomoneybadger.
