STMicroelectronics completes IP and talent acquisition from projection-technology provider bTendo
August 06, 2012 // Julien Happich
Following a successful joint development effort with start-up bTendo, STMicroelectronics has acquired the intellectual property and has hired most of the staff of the Israeli company to accelerate the propagation of scanning laser projection engines.
The Scanning Laser Projection engine produces a focus-free high-resolution output that will allow users to display their video, pictures and presentations virtually anywhere. The bTendo solution provides the smallest foot print available in the market with the best efficiency, claims ST, and meets the toughest mobile-makers design requirements. In particular, in a module smaller than 1.7cm3 and less than 5mm high, the projection engine could be integrated in even the sleekest smartphones and other portable devices.
According to projector-market research firm Pacific Media Associates, the market for pico-projectors could expand to 58 million units in 2015, up from about 3 million units shipped in 2011. ST's acquisition of bTendo’s IP and expertise leverages the strong progress of the companies’ existing joint-development efforts and positions ST to fully benefit from this significant market growth.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
