$25 Hoperun Uranus 96Boards IoT board with TI CC3220 ARM Cortex-M4

Posted by Charbax – October 3, 2017

This development board runs the TI CC3220 is for IoT applications featuring an ARM Cortex-M4 with an associated network processor that runs the whole Wi-Fi, TCP/IP and TLS stack so the main chipset doesn't have to do any of the networking or security freeing up the whole ARM Cortex-M4 for the IoT application use. At Linaro Connect San Francisco 2017 they are showing it running TI RTOS and Zephyr. This board also features the LiPo battery connector. Adding also IPv6 support and TLS suite, an ARM Cortex-M4 with 1MB Flash, 256KB RAM running at 80Mhz. It's very low power it can run for years off 2 AAA battery cells with the right duty cycle.

Acer H7850/V7850 4K DLP Projector

Posted by Charbax – June 7, 2017

Acer presents their new 4K DLP projectors at 2499€ and 2999€ (MSRP, price may vary by location). Bringing 4K projectors closer to being affordable by a larger market. Here we try to look at the 4K quality. Acer V7850 (2999€ MSRP) has 2200 lumen suitable for Home Cinema use with a RGBRGB color wheel for HDR and Rec709 and Rec2020 color accuracy while the H7850 (2499€ MSRP) is brighter at 3000 lumens using a normal RGBYCMW color wheel achieves HDR Rec2020 compatibility. Both have AccuMotion Frame interpolation for smooth sequences when there is fast movement. Both have 1 million to 1 contrast ratio. This is a nice first step by Acer to bring 4K Projectors into the mass market, I hope that by next year there might be some even more compact sub-$1000 4K DLP projectors on the market. It is awesome to be able to see the 4K quality with HDR on a huge 100-150 diagonal inch display on the wall at home.
