We report the reduction of both response times and threshold voltage by 20-50% and 30% respectively in NTN-LCD modules that brings FON = 3.2ms at V10% and 0.5ms at V0% and FOFF = 3.4ms at 25°C and FON = 6.2ms and 0.9ms at 0°C. These short figures of response times well satisfy the requirement for FSCLCD operated at 216Hz with our LCD modules and our FSCLCDs are featured by 2-3 times higher luminance efficiency than those with color filters yielding 2nits/W/m2. © 2011 SID.

SIGNiX, the leading provider of cloud-based Independent E-Signature™ solutions, announced today that it has partnered with Innovative Technology, Inc. (INTECH), an online credit union service center, to integrate SIGNiX’s Independent E-Signature™ technology into its web-based loan origination system (LOS). Through the integration, credit unions have access to end-to-end lending automation. That is, once a credit union member begins the loan application process, it can be processed entirely electronically through INTECH’s LOS technology without ever needing to print out forms or documents for members or credit union staff to sign. “When it comes to lending, the firm that can provide the loan the quickest and easiest will get the business every time,” said Tim Erwin, president of INTECH. “That’s why our integration with SIGNiX gives credit unions a tremendous advantage. If you’re processing loans with paper—requiring members to schedule an appointment to come to a branch and fill out documents—the loan process takes days. With our LOS system, combined with SIGNiX’s e-signature technology, you’re talking about a mere 15 to 20 minutes to fully process a loan. And it can happen anywhere there’s an Internet connection.” Once loans are processed and documents are electronically signed, credit unions are able to automatically store documents within INTECH’s integrated document management system—adding another level of speed and convenience. Because SIGNiX’s Independent E-Signatures™ are based on international, published standards and the legal evidence is permanently embedded into the signed documents using public key infrastructure, the e-signed documents remain valid forever with no reliance on SIGNiX to prove that validity. Unlike other e-signature solutions on the market, SIGNiX’s technology allows signed documents to be stored by the credit union and still remain independently verifiable. Users can verify e-signatures through any free PDF viewer, even offline. SIGNiX also uses the highest standards for security, including encryption, identity authentication, tamper-evident technology and more. “For some companies, the ability to forever prove the legality and legitimacy of an e-signature may never be a high priority. But for credit unions, where a signature may represent hundreds of thousands of dollars changing hands, there can be no room for doubt or uncertainty,” said Jay Jumper, CEO of SIGNiX. “We’re excited to begin a long-lasting partnership with INTECH so that credit unions across the country have the ability to process more loans—seamlessly and safely.” About SIGNiX:  SIGNiX, the most trusted name in Independent E-Signatures™, makes signing documents online safe and secure with comprehensive legal evidence permanently embedded in each document to eliminate any dependence upon SIGNiX. The company’s cloud-based service uses patented technology to give businesses and organizations the most secure and legally defensible e-signatures available at a fraction of the cost of wet ink signatures. SIGNiX’s products help the world’s leading companies become more efficient, decrease risk and boost profits.

Mesorhizobium loti MAFF303099 has a functional type III secretory system (T3SS) involved in the nodulation process on Lotus tenuis and Lotus japonicus. Four putative M. loti T3SS effectors (Mlr6358, Mlr6331, Mlr6361, and Mlr6316) have been previously described, and it has been demonstrated that the N-terminal regions of Mlr6361 and Mlr6358 mediate the secretion via a T3SS. Here, we demonstrate the capacity of Mlr6316 and Mlr6331 N-terminal regions to direct the secretion of a translational fusion to a reporter peptide through T3SS. By using single, double, and triple mutants, we demonstrated the positive and negative participation of some of these proteins in the determination of competitiveness on Lotus spp. Low competitiveness values correlated with low nodulation efficiency for a mutant deficient in three of the putative M. loti effectors. Our data suggest that the net effect of M. loti T3SS function on symbiotic process with Lotus results from a balance between positive and negative effects. © 2012 Federation of European Microbiological Societies.

Solar power is becoming an alternative for industrial plants to consider as the technology has improved and been refined. An average solar Photo Voltaic system saves thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, equivalent to removing hundreds of cars from the road. Solar power is one of the few distributed generation options for businesses to take advantage of that does not emit any pollutants into the atmosphere and can directly reduce a company's carbon footprint. Solar radiation, which is nearly constant outside the Earth's atmosphere, varies with changing atmospheric conditions (clouds and dust) and the changing position of the Earth relative to the sun. ALZA Corporation's manufacturing facility installed a 1-megawatt (MW) photovoltaic solar energy system working with SPG Solar. SPF-1000 enables the manufacturing plant to produce one-third of the power the plant requires on a high-power-demand summer day. The price of energy and government incentives are a big part of the economics for solar projects that need to be considered.

The meander line employing periodic ground structure (MLEPGS) was fabricated on GaAs substrate for application to miniaturization of RF components on MMIC, and its RF characteristics were thoroughly investigated. The MLEPGS with a length of λ/8 showed loss less than 0.72 dB up to 20GHz, which was low enough for application to RF passive components. The MLEPGS showed much higher propagation constant β and effective permittivity εeff than conventional meander line. Concretely, the MLEPGS with T of 20 μm showed μ of 1.08-20.85 rad/mm and εeff of 2703-2479 from 1 to 20GHz, while the conventional meander line showed β of 0.18-3.36 rad/mm and εeff of 74.2-64.7 in the same frequency range. According to the result, the size of the λ/4 transmission line employing the MLEPGS was 0.151mm2, which was 3.5% of the size of the transmission line employing conventional meander line.
