Miners, the COVID-19 pandemic and freezing temperatures in Texas have added a drought in Taiwan. It can further affect the production of microcircuits.

One more problem may be added to the existing problems in the electronics market. The ongoing drought in Taiwan, which has already affected the production of GPUs, DRAMs and a number of other components, could affect the industry even more.

From April, local authorities plan to impose restrictions on the supply of water. In particular, for the industry in the central districts, the indicator will be reduced by 15% from April 6. At the same time, the production of semiconductor products requires huge volumes of pure water, that is, the restrictions will clearly affect the production of chips. Besides the production of microcircuits, the production of panels for screens may also suffer.

In these districts, there are factories AUO, Micron, TSMC and Winbond, that is, very large market players. True, TSMC has already replied that restrictions on the supply of water will not affect its production. Other companies are also actively looking for solutions to the problem, including drilling wells, but it is not yet clear how long the drought will last and what water restrictions will be in time.

The fourth-generation navigation device Glonass-K2 will be launched at the end of the year. This was announced by the first deputy director general of Roscosmos for the development of the orbital constellation and promising projects, Alexander Ivanov.

The newest navigation satellite Glonass-K2 will be launched at the end of the year.  It will last 10 years and provide a navigation accuracy of less than 30 cm.

“If we take the orbital constellation, the well-known constellation of the GLONASS system. The fourth-generation device Glonass-K2 is already being prepared for launch at the end of this year, Ivanov said at the Army-2022 forum.

The Information Satellite Systems named after M.F. Reshetnev reported that there are five Glonass-K satellites at different stages of production in the workshops of the enterprise. Unlike its predecessors, Glonass-K have an extended service life of up to 10 years and improved performance. In addition to the basic navigation functions, they are also capable of transmitting signals from the international COSPAS-SARSAT system for search and rescue of those in distress around the world. In October last year, Sergey Karutin, general designer of the GLONASS system, said that Glonass-K2 would provide navigation accuracy of less than 30 cm.

There are a lot of technical problems that we are

On the sidelines of the Army-2022 forum, Kaspersky Lab CEO Evgeny Kaspersky announced that the company is finalizing the functionality of its hack-proof mobile phone to work with critical infrastructure.

“There are a lot of technical problems that we are slowly coping with.”  Evgeny Kaspersky spoke about a branded secure smartphone, which does not yet have a camera and performance problems

We wrote everything from scratch, so we still need to finish it. Camera does not work. We do, but it takes time. Plus performance – there is still work to make it work at the same speed that we are used to. There are a lot of technical problems that we are slowly coping with. When we show it and say it’s ready, I don’t know“Kaspersky said.

According to him, the device will be something between a regular smartphone and a push-button phone. “However, we do not consider it as a replacement for a regular smartphone. Still, this is more for working with critical infrastructure. … Modernity requires that infrastructure can be managed remotely. Therefore, a device is required that will be guaranteed unhackable. Therefore, we are making a device that will have a fairly limited functionality. There will be no App Store, there will be no chips that everyone loves on smartphones, but it will be a thing that can be safely controlled by a conditional turbine“Kaspersky added.

For the first time, Kaspersky announced work on creating smartphones under its own brand with protection against hackers in December 2020, then it was assumed that they would appear in 2021.
