RCA Corporation, founded as the Radio Corporation of America, was an American electronics company in existence from 1919 to 1986 when General Electric took over the company in 1985 and split it up the following year.The RCA trademark is used by Sony Music Entertainment and Technicolor, which licenses the name to other companies such as Audiovox and TCL Corporation for products descended from that common ancestor.

A formal specification and verification of a simple secure communications network using end-to-end encryption is presented. It is shown that all data sent over the network is encrypted and all heats on the network exchange messages only if they are authorized to do so. The network and its hosts are modelled by a set of concurrent processes that communicate via unidirectional buffers. Each process is viewed as a state machine. The specification has been formally verified using the commercially-available VERUS verification system. © 1984 IEEE.

Organic electroluminescence (OLED) holds the promise to deliver flexible, thin, lightweight and power-efficient light sources. Research up until now has been mainly motivated by work on glass-based displays, where the aspects of increased contrast, high viewing angle and response speed are critical. However, intelligent lighting applications are becoming increasingly relevant; here, the unique properties of OLED for high power-efficiency, uniform large-area light emission, and flexibility can give rise to a range of products that can transform the world we live in.\n\nThe overall objective of Fast2Light is to develop novel, cost-effective, high-throughput, roll-to-roll, large area deposition processes for fabricating light-emitting polymer-OLED foils for intelligent lighting applications.\n\nThe scope of the project comprises all of the layers that are part of an OLED lighting foil. It will start with the substrate choice, and introduce high-throughput deposition and patterning methods for all of the materials necessary to fabricate the final lighting foil. In doing so, it will become clear what device architectures and designs are best suited to integrate these new deposition and patterning methods. The interplay between the choice of device architecture and processing methods will be unravelled and a set of design rules for a manufacturable product will be determined, together with a final process flow. Results will be measurable in the form of demonstrators that prove the performance of the technologies and the design rules.

NANOINSULATE will develop durable, robust, cost-effective opaque and transparent vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) incorporating new nanotechnology-based core materials (nanofoams, aerogels, aerogel composites) and high-barrier films that are up to four times more energy efficient than current solutions. These new systems will provide product lifetimes in excess of 50 years suitable for a variety of new-build and retrofit building applications. Initial building simulations based on the anticipated final properties of the VIPs indicate reductions in heating demand of up to 74% and CO2 emissions of up to 46% for Madrid, Spain and up to 61% and 55% respectively for Stuttgart, Germany for a building renovation which reduces the U-value of the walls and roof from 2.0 W m-2 K-1 to 0.2 W m-2 K-1. This reduction could be achieved with NANOINSULATE products that are only 25 mm thick, giving a cost-effective renovation without the need of changing all the reveals and ledges. Similarly, significant reductions in U-values of transparent VIPs (3 W m-2 K-1 to 0.5 W m-2 K-1) are shown by substituting double glazed units in existing building stock. Six industrial & four research based partners from seven EU countries will come together to engineer novel solutions capable of being mass produced. Target final manufacturing costs for insulation board (production rates above 5 million m2/year) are less than 7 m-2 for a U-value of 0.2 W m-2 K-1. NANOINSULATE will demonstrate its developments at construction sites across Europe. A Lifecycle Assessment, together with a safety and service-life costing analysis, will be undertaken to prove economic viability. NANOINSULATE demonstrates strong relevance to the objectives and expected impacts of both the specific call text of the Public-Private Partnership Energy-efficient Buildings topic New nanotechnology-based high performance insulation systems for energy efficiency within the 2010 NMP Work Programme and the wider NMP & Energy Thematic Priorities.

INNOSHADE is concerned with an innovative, nanocomposite-based switchable light transmittance technology developed previously for small sized objects (eyewear). It constitutes a breakthrough in smart shading technology by overcoming common limitations of state-of-the-art electrochromic devices. INNOSHADE enables the low cost production of electrochromic shading appliances with lower energy consumption and faster response. The overall objective of the proposed project is to scale up and study the underlying nanotechnology-based processes from laboratory to pilot line production, with the major goal to explore and extend the application potential by creating interest in several prospective user groups across sectors. In three interrelated sub-projects dedicated to I. Ophthalmic lenses, II. Domestic appliances, and III. Aircraft and vehicle applications, procedures shall be implemented to establish pilot production lines for the individual device components as well as for their assembly to run-capable devices up to a size of 45 x 80 cm2 (automotive sunroof dimensions). Cost reduction will be accomplished via high through-put manufacturing methods such as continuous roll-to-roll processing to achieve demonstrators meeting essential market and consumer requirements. The work will be performed by a highly complementary, well-balanced consortium of 17 partners from seven member states, each one candidate and associate state, and one third country, representing the entire value chain. The proposed research closely addresses main S&T, socio-economic and policy objectives of the NMP work programme (integration of disciplines, transformation to knowledge-intensive industry, improvement of competitiveness, high added value products), shows clear environmental benefits and contributes to Sustainable Development. Strong industrial participation (5 SMEs, 4 large enterprises/multinational global players) reflects the high economic development perspectives of the project.
