HGST's drives have long stood out as the most reliable, and that trend continues.Their failure rate is remarkably low; even after three years in service, the 3TB and 4TB units have annualized failure rates of just 0.81 percent and 1.03 percent, respectively.2TB units, which last quarter were already on average more than 5 years old, have seen a small increase in failure rate—1.57 percent, compared to 1.15 percent a year ago—but still show extraordinary reliability considering their age.EnlargeBackblazeThe company continues to substantially stick with Seagate 4TB units, in spite of somewhat worse failure rates, due to a combination of better pricing and availability.This availability concern also pushes the company towards 4TB units over 6 or 8TB ones; although the pricing of those is starting to make them cost-effective, their bulk availability is still limited.While the company uses a mixture of different disks, within each of its Vaults systems of 20 individual Storage Pods, with older storage pods holding 45 drives and the latest ones increasing that to 60 it standardizes on a particular type, so Backblaze needs to be able to buy 1,200 disks at once to be able to deploy disks at any kind of a reasonable scale.
Benjamin Stahl Photographer: Fredrik Karlsson Swedish industry has a good position when it comes to robotics. But it required a serious effort to retain the position, according to a new report. In 2015 there were 1.5 million industrial roots in use worldwide compared to one million in 2009, an increase of 50 percent in five years. The rapid development of sensors have influenced and robots have become smarter, smaller, easier to use - and yet cheaper. - But the development has not been driven by the traditional robot suppliers but rather by large companies like Google, Amazon and Apple actually been more interested in artificial intelligence, says Benjamin Stahl, research director at Blue institute with the recent report robots century. But now growing faster robot use in other countries - particularly in Asia.

Nokia was the largest mobile manufacturer in the world during the late '90s and mid '00sNokia is making a comeback, releasing a new range of feature phones and tablets.The move was seen as a last-ditch attempt for the two technology giants to join forces and challenge the dominance of Apple and Google, but the pair have failed to create a meaningful phone challenger.Microsoft's Lumia range: soon to be a thing of the past?HMD has now purchased the rights to use the Nokia trademark on feature phones until 2024, and all remaining feature phone assets, including sales, manufacturing and distribution, will be sold to FIH Mobile Limited - a subsidiary of electronics manufacturer Foxxconn, best-known as one of Apple's largest suppliers for iPhone.Microsoft too has been struggling: rumours suggest plans to axe the poorly-selling Lumia line and reinvigorate its smartphones with a new Surface Phone.Lack of popular apps and an unpopular ecosystem means Microsoft holds less than 2 per cent of the global smartphone market, and sold just 2.3 million units during the first three months of the year.
Since the start of Tesla Model S electric-car production in 2012, the company s lithium-ion cells have been supplied by its Japanese partner Panasonic.That applies to the more recent Tesla Model X crossover SUV as well—and Panasonic was also an early investor in Tesla Motors shares, owning a small percentage of the Silicon Valley company.For the upcoming $35,000 Model 3 sedan, Tesla is building its massive gigafactory outside Reno, Nevada, to lower the cost of that car s cells through a single integration production site.Panasonic is a partner in that project, although its financial commitments have been cautious and conservative.Now, according to an article yesterday in The Korea Times, Tesla is talking with three other possible cell suppliers for the Model 3: LG Chem, Samsung, and SK Innovation.According to the newspaper s report, LG Chem is expected to win the Tesla business thanks to its output commitment, good pricing and on-time delivery.LG Chem is one of the world s three largest suppliers of lithium-ion cells for electric vehicles, with contracts to supply more than a dozen different vehicles—including both the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid and the Chevy Bolt EV that will go into production by the end of this year.Panasonic is another of the three, with Tesla as its primary customer.The third large cell supplier is Automotive Electric Supply Corporation AESC , the joint venture between Nissan and Japanese computer giant NEC.That venture supplies cells for the current Nissan Leaf, the world s best-selling electric car.Earlier this month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the company had moved up its target date for producing 500,000 electric cars a year.Formerly planned for 2020, he now says that will be the rate for 2018—an escalation in production rates that some industry insiders say simply cannot be met.The Model 3 is scheduled to go into production before the end of 2017, another extremely aggressive target, using cells from the Nevada gigafactory.At the moment, that plant is assembling battery packs using cells assembled elsewhere, but Tesla says it will begin fabrication of the cells themselves by the end of this year.Still, if Musk s remarkable volume target is to be met, it appears that Model 3s may require more than one cell supplier.Hence the discussions with the three Korean companies.If the newspaper s report is accurate, and even some Tesla Model 3s are built using cells made by LG Chem, that would likely catapult the Korean company to the leader among global battery suppliers.The Model 3 is expected to use 4.9-Amp-hour cylindrical cells from Panasonic in the 26650 format, somewhat larger than the 3.4-Ah 18650 cells used in the Model S and Model X.To ramp up to the required battery-pack volumes for Musk s Model 3 targets, LG Chem, Samsung, or SK Innovation would have to offer cells in that format that offer the same energy and power characteristics as the Panasonic cells—which Tesla likely helped to design.Whether those cells would be shipped to its pack-assembly line from elsewhere, or fabricated in the gigafactory, remains unknown.But with such aggressive goals for Model 3 volumes, it appears that Tesla wants to ensure that the capacity of the world s lithium-ion cell suppliers won t constrain production of the car for which Tesla says it has taken almost 400,000 deposits.In fact, the ability of battery suppliers to provide enough cells to meet growing demand for battery-electric cars promises to be a fascinating story over the next two or three years.hat tip: Joseph Dubeau This post first appeared on Green Car Reports.
Google has begun to use computer processors its engineers designed to increase the performance of the company s artificial intelligence software, potentially threatening the businesses of traditional chip suppliers such as Intel Corp. and Nvidia Corp.During the past year, Google has deployed thousands of these specialized artificial intelligence chips, called TensorFlow Processing Units, in servers within its data centers, Urs Holzle, the company s senior vice president of infrastructure, told reporters Wednesday at the company s developer conference.Google declined to specify precisely how many of the chips it s using, but stressed the company continues to use many typical central processing units and graphics processing units made by other companies.It s been in pretty widespread use for about a year.Google has no plans to sell the specialized chips to third-parties, said Diane Greene, Google s senior vice president of cloud.Google and other big data-center operators are the largest consumers of server processors, the main engine of growth and profit for Intel, the world s biggest semiconductor maker.Graphics maker Nvidia is also pinning much of its future growth ambitions on the bet that its chips will have a larger role to play in data processing, including artificial intelligence and machine learning.Google s chip connects to computer servers via a protocol called PCI-E, which means it can be slotted into the company s computers, rapidly augmenting them with faster artificial-intelligence capabilities.As the field matures, Google might very well build more specialized processors for specific AI tasks, he said.Over time, Google expects to design more system-level components, Holzle said.Even Nvidia, which makes traditional graphics processing units that have been adopted for machine learning, is beginning to add more custom elements to its hardware.
Photo EPA, Leszek SzmanskiSemiconductor companies that produce the tiny components that go into smartphones are set for challenging times because of slowing worldwide handset sales, analysts said.As a result, firms in the sector are under pressure to merge or risk going under financially.The impact of slowing smartphone sales growth on the semiconductor industry will be felt hardest by back-end companiesFitch RatingsFalling sales and slower demand for smartphones means that suppliers producing, assembling and testing microchips and other components have received fewer orders from manufacturers.Apple said with the release of their second-quarter results in late April that sales of iPhones — their flagship product — declined for the first time.Smaller companies with less than a 5 per cent market share have also begun to seek mergers, the report said.A prolonged industry slowdown exacerbated by slowing smartphone sales growth and the absence of a new mass-appeal device could hit the liquidity of smaller OSAT companies, Fitch s report said.

Yes, Apple is going back to glass, implied by one of its key suppliers, but it is glass enveloping a metal frame.CEO Allen Horng told reporters that he knows only one iPhone model will adopt glass casings in 2017.That pretty much corroborates speculation by media as early as last month that Apple will indeed be switching to glass.He says that such smartphones will still require a sturdy metal frame to support it, which is why the company will still be in Apple's good graces.Analysts believe that Catcher Technology's loss will prove to be beneficial to Biel Crystal Manufactory and Lens Technology, a Chinese company that already provides Apple with glass covers for iPhones.As to why Apple will make such a switch, it is commonly held belief that Tim Cook is under pressure to revive the iPhone's hold on the smartphone market.

Tesla has taken 373,000 orders for the Model 3 - which has a starting price of $35,000, about half its Model S - and has said it would begin customer deliveries in late 2017.Citing "tremendous demand," Chief Executive Elon Musk told analysts on an April call that the company planned to boost total production, including the existing Model S and Model X crossover, to 500,000 in 2018 - two years earlier than its original target and a 10-fold increase over the 50,000 vehicles it made in 2015.He said Tesla would drop suppliers that could not meet deadlines and would bring more parts production in-house than traditional automakers typically do.The company still is soliciting bids for parts and machinery, according to representatives from several of companies that have received them, as well as industry consultants who monitor such bids.Automaking consultant Ron Harbour of Oliver Wyman said increasing production at the Fremont plant to 500,000 vehicles in 2018 would require more stamping, welding and assembly machinery that "could take up to 18 months to order and install."Tesla's production push comes at a time of high demand for machinery and tooling created by a surge in product launches coming from established automakers, said a Detroit-based supplier sales executive.

And to help fund such an ambitious production schedule, Tesla just this week announced its intention to raise $1.4 billion in capital via a stock sale.Industry experts said Tesla s new goals were extraordinary and raised doubts it could meet them.…One complication is that Tesla has not finalized the Model 3 design and specifications, said automaking consultants and supply executives who asked not to be identified because Tesla prohibits them from disclosing contract detailsIndeed, Musk over the past few weeks has affirmed via Twitter that the company is still working out the final design for the Model 3.Specifically, Musk said that they re still working on the design of the trunk and the front grill area.As to previous delays that hampered the rollout of the Model S and the Model X, Musk tried to assuage the concerns of skeptics by noting that the Model 3 should be looked at through a completely different lens because the Model 3 is a decidedly simpler car to manufacture.Needless to say, it will be fascinating to see how progress on the Model 3 unfolds over the next 12-18 months.
