Nokia Details The Process Of An Android Update

Due to the fact that many manufacturers release Android updates at different times, it can leave a feeling of uncertainty amongst users, where some might be wondering where the heck is their update, and whether or not they will get an update. Now in a post on HMD’s website, they detail what goes on behind the process of an update.

Presumably the idea behind this infographic is to give users better understanding of why sometimes updates seem to take a while before they are released, and why sometimes they might be released at different points in time. Now it should be noted that this process will differ from manufacturer to manufacturer since different companies have different ways of doing things.

Sony manufacturing process of a CMOS image sensor detailed at IEDM 2017

The Sony group (Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corp and Sony Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp) made an announcement about the manufacturing process of a CMOS image sensor that is made by stacking layers including a DRAM layer and making them into a chip at IEDM 2017.

The image sensor was first announced at ISSCC 2017 and has already been employed for smartphones (See related article). But this is the first time that the group has unveiled the manufacturing process.

Step in the process

The Yomiuri ShimbunHita geta, wooden sandals made of cedar produced in Hita, Oita Prefecture, are piled high to be dried in the shade. This step in the traditional craft's production process is known as watsumi (literally, piling in a circle) and involves stacking the sandals' wooden bases about 2 to 3 meters high. Though fewer people wear geta these days, the 42-year-old president of a geta manufacturer has pledged to work to preserve the traditional sound of people clattering down the street in the wooden sandals.
