MANTA AIRCRAFT Hybrid Electric ANN1 and ANN2 will take off and land vertically. Video.

 



The name 'Manta' will probably ring a bell with older readers of Up in the Sky. It was a legendary coupe from car manufacturer Opel. In the 1970s and 1980s, more than a million were manufactured. A Manta is a large fish, a ray that lives in tropical and subtropical oceans and has a mouth at the front instead of the bottom. With some imagination, the shape of the aircraft designs of Manta Aircraft can be traced back to the striking ray. This also applies to the logo. 

To design

Manta Aircraft is based in Lugano, in the southern canton of Ticino. The company is engaged in consultancy and the design of (hybrid) electric aircraft. This concerns aircraft with 1 or 2 seats for the Urban and Regional Air Mobility. The planes are S / VTOL: they can use very short runways or take off and land vertically. The Mantas are suitable for personal use, but can also be used for special operations such as environmental inspection, emergency assistance, and search and rescue. Partners of the Swiss company are automotive manufacturer YCOM and software giant BSIM Engineering.

 

Showpiece

Manta Aircraft has two aircraft in its range. The ANN1 is a type of racing aircraft. The single-seater has a length of 7 meters and a wingspan of 5.5 meters. The device has a high maximum speed of 300 kilometers per hour and excellent climbing performance and is very maneuverable. The two-seater ANN2 is to become the showpiece for General Aviation. The aircraft is a stroke larger than the ANN 1 and has a considerable range of 600 kilometers. This is achieved, among other things, by not ascending vertically, but horizontally. 

Characteristics

The ANN2 is made of composites and has 8 tiltable ducted fans; 4 in the wings, 2 in the fuselage, and 2 in the back. Other features include a cockpit with very good all-round visibility, a fly-by-wire system and a human-machine interface that is easy to use. The aircraft is equipped with canards for high efficiency during level flight. Operational costs are expected to be significantly lower than for a helicopter. Also handy, the ANN2 can be transported by road in a trailer. Manta Aircraft is currently working hard to complete a 1: 3 model of the ANN2.

LG Electronics is launching a new 2021 LG Gram 16 inch model in the domestic market.

 


LG Electronics introduced a new 16-inch model, LG Gram 16, following the existing 14/15.6/17-inch size. It is planning to further strengthen its leadership in the premium notebook market with a variety of ultra-lightweight and large-screen lineups.

On the 16th, LG Electronics held an online launch event for the 2021 model LG Gram. In the public video, the popular singer Henry appeared, listening directly to the product planning, design, and development managers of Gram's features, and the process of producing Gramsong. In addition, famous IT YouTuber B-NOTE unboxed and introduced the features of LG Gram 16 in detail, such as portability, design, performance, and large-capacity battery of LG Gram 16.

The LG Gram 16 weighs only 1,190g and has been certified as the World's Lightest 16-inch Laptop' by the World Guinness Association. The 80 watt hour (Wh) large-capacity battery is mounted even in light weight to maximize ease of use.

LG Gram 16 is equipped with a WQXGA (2560×1600) high-resolution IPS display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, and the picture quality is clearer and clearer than the existing 15.6-inch FHD (1920×1080) resolution display. In addition, it meets 99% of the DCI-P3 standard color gamut of the Digital Film Association (DCI), so the color expression is rich and natural.

The LG Gram 16 design is a strong point of minimal beauty and solidity. In particular, elegant sophistication is exuded from the corners finished at right angles. The immersion of the screen is enhanced by minimizing the exposure of the hinge connecting the screen and the keyboard. Even though it is a large 16-inch display, its compact design makes it portable.

LG Gram 16 is equipped with Intel's 11th-generation processor Tiger Lake, which increases data processing speed by about 20% compared to existing products. In addition, Intel's built-in graphic processor Iris Xe is also installed to show high-definition images clearly and support a realistic gaming environment.

SPACE: US-based firm Aevum to launch satellites into space from mid-air with world's biggest drone.


The giant Ravn X drone is 80 ft long, 18 ft tall and has a wingspan of 60 ft


Jay Skylus, founder and CEO of Aevum, stands in front of the newly unveiled Ravn X drone


US-based firm Aevum, has just unveiled a gigantic drone called the Ravn X that is designed to act as an autonomous, airborne launch system for small satellites.

Aevum hopes to improve access to space with a novel launch system that can deliver payloads to orbit with high frequency. Aevum solution to this was to develop what it says is the biggest drone in the world, which can autonomously take off and land on runways as short as one mile (1.6 km) long and requires only 8,000 square feet (743 sq m) of hangar space.

The giant Ravn X drone is 80 ft (24 m) long, 18 ft (5.5 m) tall, has a wingspan of 60 ft (18 m) and uses the same jet fuel as a regular airplane.

Aevum says the Ravn X is almost weather agnostic and can launch in nearly all conditions, while 70 percent of the drone is reusable, with the company eyeing something closer to full reusability down the track.

The Ravn X won’t require pilots onboard to operate, therefore removing the risk to human life. Safety issues aside, Aevum says a full fleet of autonomous RavnX vehicles will be capable of firing a payload into space every 180 minutes.

“Aevum is completely reimagining access to space,” says Jay Skylus, founder and CEO of Aevum. “The current definition of rocket science doesn’t work for us. With Aevum, everyone will be able to say, ‘It is rocket science and I can do it.’ Aevum is pushing logistics to the next generation with software and automation technologies.”

Aevum may have just whipped the covers off its autonomous launch system, but says it has already earned more than US$1 billion in launch contracts. Among its customers is the US Space Force, which will use the Ravn X system to launch its ASLON-45 mission to place a set of small satellites in low Earth orbit.

“I’m excited to see the bold innovation and responsiveness in development today by our small launch industry partners to support emerging warfighter needs,” says Lt. Col. Ryan Rose, Chief of the Space and Missile Systems Center’s Small Launch and Targets Division. 

“The U.S. Space Force is proactively partnering with industry to support U.S. space superiority objectives. Having a robust U.S. industry providing responsive launch capability is key to ensuring the U.S. Space Force can respond to future threats.”

3Q2020 NAND FLASH WorldWide market share: Samsung 33,1%, Kioxia 21,4%, WDC 14,3%, SK Hynix 11,3%, says TrendForce

 



Total NAND Flash revenue reached US$14.5 billion in 3Q20, a 0.3% increase QoQ, while total NAND Flash bit shipment rose by 9% QoQ, but the ASP fell by 9% QoQ, according to TrendForce’s latest investigations. 

The market situation in 3Q20 can be attributed to the rising demand from the consumer electronics end as well as the recovering smartphone demand before the year-end peak sales season. 

Notably, in the PC market, the rise of distance education contributed to the growing number and scale of Chromebook tenders, but the increase in the demand for Chromebook devices has not led to a significant increase in NAND Flash consumption because storage capacity is rather limited for this kind of notebook computer. 

Moreover, clients in the server and data center segments had aggressively stocked up on components and server barebones during 2Q20 due to worries about the impact of the pandemic on the supply chain. 

Hence, their inventories reached a fairly high level by 3Q20. Clients are now under pressure to control and reduce their inventories during this second half of the year. With the scaling back procurement, the overall NAND Flash demand has also weakened, leading to a downward turn in the contract prices of most NAND Flash products.

On the other hand, the latest escalation in the U.S.-China trade dispute saw the U.S. government expanding its export control rules against Huawei in mid-3Q20. Subsequently, Huawei had to pull component shipments forward and stock up as much as possible before the rules came into effect. 

The wave of procurement triggered by this event affected not only MCP and UFS solutions for smartphones but also low-density MLC eMMC solutions for consumer products and NAND wafers for components. Bit shipments for 3Q20, on the whole, grew on account of this event.

Looking ahead to 4Q20, customers in the server segment will continue with their inventory reduction efforts. Hence, the overall demand will still be rather sluggish. Furthermore, the wave of procurement initiated by Huawei has subsided since the stricter export control regime came into force in mid-September. 

Other Chinese smartphone brands are now aggressively building their component inventories in preparation to capture Huawei’s market share. However, their demand together with the demand related to the iPhone 12 series is not enough to reverse the oversupply situation that will be affecting the entire NAND Flash market through 4Q20. 

Also, Samsung and YMTC still intend to continue raising production output, thereby worsening the glut in the NAND Flash market. TrendForce expects the continuing decline in prices to lead to a QoQ decline in total NAND Flash revenue in 4Q20.

Samsung

Samsung’s ASP fell by nearly 10% QoQ for 3Q20 as the overall demand was adversely affected by the inventory reduction efforts that were taking place in the server segment. However, its bit shipments significantly exceeded expectations for the same period and offset the price decline. The tightening of the U.S. export restrictions in the middle of the quarter compelled Huawei to extend its component inventory “one last time” before being cut off from foreign suppliers. 

At the same time, Samsung benefitted from the stock-up demand related to the upcoming release of the iPhone 12 series. Samsung saw a QoQ increase of almost 20% in its NAND Flash bit shipments for 3Q20. Thanks to this, its NAND Flash revenue for the same quarter also rose by 5.9% QoQ to US$4.809 billion.

At the moment, Samsung is proceeding with the second-phase expansion of its Xi’an base as scheduled. As for developments in technology and products, the V5 (92L) process still accounts for the majority share of Samsung’s NAND Flash output. To maintain cost competitiveness, Samsung will be stepping up efforts to get clients to adopt SSDs and UFS solutions featuring V6 (128L) NAND Flash. The transition from the V5 to the V6 will become more pronounced in 2021.

Kioxia

Kioxia’s bit shipments in 3Q20 increased by nearly 25% QoQ thanks to Huawei’s aggressive inventory building and the demand related to the releases of the iPhone 12 series and new game consoles. However, Kioxia’s ASP fell by around 9% QoQ on account of the declining overall demand for NAND Flash products. Despite the drop in prices, Kioxia posted considerable revenue growth for 3Q20 because its earnings report for the period included the revenue from the SSD business unit that it acquired from Lite-On. The supplier’s NAND Flash revenue went up by 24.6% QoQ to US$3.101 billion.

In the aspect of capacity planning, Kioxia can add new production capacity at K1 but plans to keep its total wafer starts relatively constant to the end of 2021. Moving to product development, 96L products still account for the majority share of Kioxia’s supply. 

The production of 112L BiCS products is not expected to pick up noticeably until 2H21. It is worth noting that Kioxia just announced this October 29 that it will build a new production facility, designated as Fab7, at its Yokkaichi base. The construction is scheduled to begin in 1Q21, and the facility is set to contribute to the supplier’s output in 2022. With respect to products, Fab7 will probably focus on solutions after the BiCS6 generation.

Western Digital (WDC)

WDC’s bit shipments increased by 1% QoQ due to stronger-than-expected sales of storage products for the retail and gaming markets. However, its shipments of client SSDs and enterprise SSDs dropped noticeably because of inventory adjustments by clients in the PC and server segments. Moreover, its ASP fell by about 9% QoQ because of the change in its product mix and the weakening of the overall demand. As a result, WDC was not able to prevent a decline in its quarterly revenue and recorded a QoQ drop of 7.1% to US$2.078 billion.

Turning to capacity planning, WDC will be collaborating with Kioxia to ready more production capacity at K1 and build the new Fab7 at Yokkaichi. These expansion activities will enhance WDC’s competitive position vis-à-vis the other major suppliers. As for product development, WDC will only begin to accelerate the transition to the BiCS5 (112L) technology in 2021. For now, most of its products are still based on 96L BiCS4 technology. WDC will also be offering BiCS4 SSDs with the PCIe 4.0 interface in the near future.

SK Hynix

SK Hynix gives more weight to mobile solutions in its NAND Flash product mix, so its bit shipments for 3Q20 grew by about 9% QoQ on the backs of the new iPhone devices, new game consoles, and Huawei’s procurement activities. However, SK Hynix was also affected by the inventory reduction efforts in the server segment. The share of SSDs in its NAND Flash product shipments fell under 45% in 3Q20, and its ASP also dropped by around 10% QoQ. Taken these factors all together, SK Hynix’s revenue for 3Q20 dipped by 3.1% QoQ to US$1.643 billion.

SK Hynix will not make any significant changes to its production capacity. The company is expected to maintain its wafer input levels by the end of 2021.

To extend its cost advantage, SK Hynix is pushing clients to adopt 96L and 128L solutions. The 128L process is expected to comprise around 30% of the supplier’s overall NAND Flash output by the end of this year. However, the adoption of 128L solutions by server OEMs requires more time. Regarding SK Hynix’s acquisition of Intel’s NAND Flash business, the deal was announced this October 20. TrendForce points out that the deal will help strengthen SK Hynix in the development of QLC NAND Flash and enterprise SSDs, which are two areas that the company needs to improve. Through the acquisition of Intel’s assets, SK Hynix will also become the world’s second-largest NAND Flash supplier by market share.

Micron

Micron’s revenue for its latest fiscal quarter dropped by 8.1% QoQ to US$1.53 billion. Micron has been optimizing its sales mix with a focus on reducing the share of channel-market wafers. Nevertheless, its ASP fell by nearly 8% QoQ for its latest fiscal quarter (June-August) due to the downturn of the whole NAND Flash market. The temporary wave of procurement initiated by Huawei helped Micron’s bit shipments, which were on par with the previous quarter.

On the technology front, Micron has started to ship 128L products featuring Replacement Gate, which is its own transistor design. However, the supplier’s focus for next year will be on the market release of its 176L products. Micron intends to have most of its storage products for OEMs directly migrate to 176L technology. These include client SSDs, UFS solutions, etc. The deliveries of 176L samples are scheduled to be completed before 2Q21. Furthermore, Micron is steadily raising the shipment share of QLC products. This indicates that Micron wants to be regarded as the main alternative to Intel in the QLC segment.

Intel

Intel experienced a substantial QoQ decline of almost 25% in its bit shipments for 3Q20. Since Intel has a large market share for enterprise SSDs, the increasing pressure on server OEMs to reduce their component inventories turned this advantage into a disadvantage in bit shipments. Also, Intel suffered a QoQ drop of around 10% in its ASP because of the weakening overall demand. With falling shipments and prices, Intel’s NAND Flash revenue for 3Q20 registered a steep QoQ decline of 30.5% to US$1.153 billion.

In the aspect of capacity planning, Intel has no expansion plan for this year and intends to maintain wafer starts at its Dalian plant. For next year, Intel will undertake capacity expansion, though the long-term benefit of the additional capacity will mostly go to SK Hynix. Looking at plans related to products and technology, Intel remains focused on enterprise SSDs and has sent samples of 144L products to its clients. The production of 144L solutions is expected to begin ramping up in 2021.

3Q 2020 Western Europe smartphone market share: Samsung 35,6%, Apple 28,5%, Xiaomi 12,8% says IDC.

 


The smartphone market in Western Europe continued to be impacted by lockdowns in the third quarter of 2020, as shipments declined 6.5% year over year to 28.8 million units, according to data from International Data Corporation (IDCWorldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker.

Although lockdown restrictions were lifted across Europe, the smartphone market continued to be impacted by the economic environment. 

While consumer spending on smartphones improved slightly, sales of smartphones to enterprises dropped 11.5% year on year as enterprises shifted spending from smartphones to notebooks.

"The consumer segment was more resilient in Q3 2020 than the commercial segment, as consumers returned to stores to buy new smartphones," said Francisco Jeronimo, associate vice president at IDC EMEA. 

"Although sales online exploded in the last two quarters, the reopening of brick and mortar stores proved to be particularly important for the latest devices, as four out of the ten most sold devices in Q3 2020 were devices launched in the previous quarter. 

The store continues to be the place where consumers learn and test the latest novelties from vendors. Without that physical experience, consumers tend to choose the products they already know when buying online, making it harder for new brands and new products to succeed."

Among the top five vendors, Apple, Xiaomi, and OPPO were the stars in the third quarter, delivering the strongest growth in the region. Apple benefited from strong sales of the newly launched iPhone SE (2020) and the continuous performance of its iPhone 11 portfolio. The iPhone 11 and the iPhone SE (2020) were the two best sellers in the quarter.

In the midrange, Xiaomi and OPPO continue to gain share from Huawei. Xiaomi became the third largest brand in Western Europe for the first time, while OPPO grew its market share and consolidated its fifth position.

Shipments of 5G devices reached 3 million units, up 123.1% from the previous quarter to represent 10.4% of the total number of smartphones.
