Many flagships can only dream of such cooling. Disassembly revealed that inside Xiaomi Mi 11T Pro

Xiaomi 11T Pro is one of the company’s flagships, which, among other things, boasts a 120-watt charger. Now a video of the disassembly of the device has appeared on the Web, which reveals the features of the structure of the smartphone.

The cooling system is of particular interest. It does not stand out for its size or the presence of a fan, but three important elements are combined here at once: thermal paste, copper film and graphite film.

All this should help to better dissipate heat from the rather hot Snapdragon 888 SoC, which is emitted by active throttling on most smartphones.

The graphite film can also be seen under the battery. Considering the ultra-fast charging, the battery should clearly heat up noticeably. In addition, there is also an evaporation chamber.

In general, you can see that Xiaomi has paid a lot of attention to cooling the Mi 11T Pro.

NASA: You Can Help Teach Rovers To Explore Mars Better

Published

The US Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA has published a note with the intriguing headline “You Can Help Teach NASA Mars Rovers to Explore Mars Better.”

As the department explains, artificial intelligence has tremendous potential to change the way spacecraft study the universe. But since all machine learning algorithms require human training, NASA is asking members of the public to help identify elements of scientific interest in images taken by the Perseverance rover.

The project, called AI4Mars, is a follow-up to a project launched last year based on imagery from the Curiosity rover.

NASA: You Can Help Teach Rovers To Explore Mars Better

Early contributors to this project mapped out nearly half a million images, using a tool to highlight objects such as sand and rock that NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Mars rover drivers typically look at when planning routes on the Red Planet. The end result was an algorithm called SPOC (Classification of Soil and Object Properties) that could correctly identify these features in almost 98% of cases.

The SPOC algorithm is still in development, and NASA hopes that one day it can be sent to Mars aboard a spacecraft of the future that can do more autonomous driving than Perseverance’s AutoNav technology allows.

AI4Mars now provides additional markers to indicate more precise details, allowing people to choose options such as moving rocks or nodules (globular mineral formations).

The goal is to hone an algorithm that could help a future rover pick “needles out of a haystack” of data sent from Mars.

Equipped with 19 cameras, Perseverance sends tens to hundreds of images to Earth every day for scientists and engineers to view specific geologic features. But time is running out: after these images have traveled millions of kilometers from Mars to Earth, NASA team members have hours to develop the next set of instructions, based on what they see in these images, to send to Perseverance.

GaN fast chargers are expected to surpass 50% in 2025

Published

on

Apple recently introduced a 140W MagSafe charger for the new MacBook Pro, marking the first time Apple has used gallium nitride (GaN) transistors in a charger. According to TrendForce analysts, this is a sign that fast chargers over 100W have entered a period of growth. This is facilitated by lower prices for power GaN transistors, which are already close to $ 1 apiece. TrendForce expects the share of models with such transistors among fast chargers this year will be 17%, which is almost double last year’s figure, and in 2025 it will exceed 50%.

TrendForce also notes that the peak power of the vast majority of GaN fast chargers in 2020 was in the 55-65W range. More specifically, the 55-65W model accounted for 72% of all GaN fast chargers sales, while the 90W or higher model accounted for only 8% of sales. 140W peak power fast chargers are the most powerful currently available.

Top 10 SSD manufacturers cut shipments by 15% in 2020, according to TrendForce

Published

A little more than two months remain until the end of 2021, and TrendForce experts have just analyzed the situation with the supply of SSD modules in 2020. They concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the supply of these products. Affected by the disruption of production and logistics processes, which began in the second quarter, when governments around the world began to impose restrictions, in their opinion, necessary to combat the pandemic. As a result, the supply of SSDs to the channel (retail sales) amounted to 111.5 million units, which is 15% less than in 2019. As for the market leaders, the top three remained unchanged: Kingston, Adata and Kimtigo.

Analysts clarify that when looking at the overall solid-state drive market, NAND flash vendors, led by Samsung, accounted for about 35% of total shipments in 2020, with solid-state drive module makers accounting for the remaining 65%. The top ten module manufacturers provide 71% of SSD shipments per channel. Their shares are shown in the press release published by TrendForce in the form of a table:
