И сразу возникает вопрос, как измерить этот объем, который напрямую отразится на нашем кошельке. Самым действенным представляется измерение объемов отходов в контейнерах. Решению этой инженерной и отчасти экологической задачи и посвящена статья.


Рисунок 1 — Измерение уровня наполненности контейнера без применения электронных средств.

Я руковожу отделом разработки радиоэлектронной аппаратуры в производственной компании ООО “Большая Тройка”. Компания занимается автоматизацией работы по обращению с отходами. Если вы хоть что-то слышали про территориальные схемы обращения с отходами и автоматизированные системы управления для региональных операторов, есть очень большая вероятность, что их разработали и внедрили именно мы. Мой отдел небольшой, но работает над весьма интересными задачами: телематические контроллеры для управления парком автомобилей-мусоровозов, разнообразная автоматика для полигонов, контейнерных площадок и самих контейнеров.

Я расскажу о разработке датчика уровня наполненности контейнера отходами. Задача такого прибора — измерять количество насыпанного в контейнер мусора и передавать эти данные на сервер для дальнейшей обработки. Уже сейчас, до внедрения тарификации по объему, данные от таких датчиков могут очень помочь в оптимизации использования контейнерных площадок: отходы из контейнеров должны вывозиться в строго определенный промежуток времени, холостой пробег мусоровозов должен быть минимизирован, а количество и качество контейнеров на контейнерной площадке должно быть максимально адекватно потребностям отходообразователей.

Despite recent volatility, Nvidia is up about 21% over the past three months, underscoring the company’s position as a tech bellwether and proving that Wall Street is still infatuated with this red-hot growth stock.

Nvidia’s momentum comes on the back of its advancements in autonomous driving, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. But the company is still a powerhouse in its core gaming market, meaning that NVDA investors are getting unique exposure to both an industry leader and a budding growth play.

The strength of Nvidia’s core business and new revenue streams has paid off in the form of rapid earnings and revenue improvement, with the graphics-chip maker notching adjusted EPS expansion of 61% and sales growth of 41% in its most recent fiscal year.

But this surge has, at times, allowed Nvidia’s valuation to skyrocket into speculative territory, leading some value investors to declare it a bubble that is doomed to burst at the first sign of trouble.

With that said, value investors should not ignore NVDA. In fact, a closer look at its valuation trend over the past year reveals a few interesting trends that might make the stock more attractive right now. Here’s how Nvidia’s Forward P/E looks compared to its peer group:

 

Our system places seven other companies into Nvidia’s peer group: Texas Instruments TXN, STMicroelectronics STM, Intel INTC, THK Co. THKLY, Sumco SUOPY, Xcerra XCRA, and Amtech Systems ASYS.

This is obviously a diverse group of stocks, with some serving as direct competitors to Nvidia in certain key businesses—and others focusing on different markets entirely. This group is not perfect for direct comparisons, but it does help show how investors value other companies in the evolving semiconductor industry.

Nvidia is clearly trading at a premium to its peer group, but that makes sense considering what the company brings to the table. The Santa Clara, California-based firm is on the cutting edge of the AI industry, and its products are also the go-to hardware for smart vehicle manufacturers.

Meanwhile, Nvidia GPUs are the top choice among serious PC gamers, which continues to be a great core business for the company. In other words, investors should expect to pay a premium for a high-tech company with a solid foundation and mountains of potential.

What’s more, Nvidia is actually trading at the lowest earnings multiple it has seen in nearly a year. Those concerned about the company’s valuation might have already written the stock off, but NVDA is really the cheapest it has been in some time.

Nvidia has also been identified as a strong option by our proven Zacks Rank system. Our model places an emphasis on earnings estimates and positive estimate revisions, and ever-improving analyst sentiment surrounding NVDA helps the stock earn our top mark.

Over the past 60 days, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for Nvidia’s full-year earnings has gained a staggering $1.55, indicating that analysts are struggling to keep up with the company’s lightning-fast growth. Thanks to this revision activity, NVDA is sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).

Nvidia is certainly a pricey stock, but investors simply have to pay a premium for a company of this quality right now. NVDA is poised to outperform the market over the next one to three months, and it is on track to be a dominant tech powerhouse for years to come.

<![CDATA[Avnet (AVT) Boosts IoT Offerings in Collaboration With AT&T]]> Avnet Inc. AVT recently announced additions to the series of AT&T T IoT Starter Kits that have been developed by the duo. The latest additions include STM32L4 and 4 G LTE-M development platform.

Avnet’s IoT starter kits are aimed at assisting designers in easing development and prototyping of IoT devices. It consists of key components that enable collection of sensor data, connection to the network and simultaneous management, storage and analytics of the connected devices.

Per the press release, “This LTE-M iteration of the AT&T IoT Starter Kit, with IoT Discovery board from STMicroelectronics, reduces the complexity of LTE-M device development by bringing together all the elements required to develop and prototype highly secure, cost-effective and reliable IoT devices connected to AT&T’s 4G LTE-M network.”

We believe the new inclusion, which the company will demonstrate across various “Technology Tour stops” throughout the United States, will boost its IoT solutions suite, thereby aiding its top line going ahead.

Timeline of Avnet’s IoT Initiatives

Notably, Avnet has been trying to expand its footprint in the IoT domain over the past year via investments in embedded solutions, IoT and critical digital platforms, as well as expansion into greenfield markets.

In January, the company launched its cloud-based IoT platform & services via Microsoft’s MSFT Azure. The platform, called IoTConnect leverages Azure’s hybrid cloud computing for data distribution and analysis across cloud-based and on-premise storage systems and will enable users to deploy a variety of applications.

In December 2017, the company announced a wide range of Internet of Things (IoT) services for the entire lifecycle of related products. These enhanced services will be assisting consumers with designing to delivery of IoT products.

In February 2017, the company partnered with AT&T for further development of its IoT solutions. Additionally, it made several inorganic additions via the acquisitions of Dragon Innovation, Premier Farnell and Hackster.io, to enhance its capabilities in this space.

Notably, per a recent article by Energy Live News that quoted ITC, worldwide spending on IoT is predicted to reach $1.3 trillion by 2020 from $700 billion in 2016. We believe with the ongoing advancements in the domain, Avnet is poised to make the most of the growth opportunity.

Currently, Avnet carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

A better-ranked stock in the broader technology sector is Micron MU, carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Micron has an expected long-term EPS growth rate of 10%.

The Hottest Tech Mega-Trend of All                 

Last year, it generated $8 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $47 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce "the world's first trillionaires," but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.

<![CDATA[How Nvidia (NVDA) Can Justify Its Stock's Sky-High Valuation]]> Shares of Nvidia NVDA gained about 1.5% on Friday, extending the red-hot stock’s impressive run and lifting its three-month gains to over 25%. The Wall Street darling remains a dominant player in the gaming industry, but its ongoing rise to the top of the technology sector comes on the back of tireless advancements in autonomous driving, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.

Nvidia’s investments in these budding industries have also been paying off in the form of rapid earnings and revenue improvement, with the graphics-chip maker notching adjusted EPS expansion of 61% and sales growth of 41% in its most recent fiscal year.

One of the company’s main growth drivers has been its Datacenter segment, which includes its AI-powered DGX and Tesla products. In the latest full quarter, Nvidia witnessed Datacenter revenues of $606 million, up about 105% year over year.

But this surge has, at times, allowed Nvidia’s valuation to skyrocket into speculative growth stock territory, leading some cautious investors to declare it a bubble that is doomed to burst at the first sign of trouble.

With that said, I want to show one NVDA chart that I think every investor needs to see—regardless of whether you are bullish or bearish on the company’s future.

Here’s how Nvidia’s Forward P/E currently stacks up against its peer group:

Our system places seven other companies into Nvidia’s peer group: Texas Instruments TXN, STMicroelectronics STM, Intel INTC, THK Co. THKLY, Sumco SUOPY, Xcerra XCRA, and Amtech Systems ASYS.

This is obviously a diverse group of stocks, with some serving as direct competitors to Nvidia in certain key businesses—and others focusing on different markets entirely. This group is not perfect for direct comparisons, but it does help show how investors value other companies in the evolving semiconductor industry.

There are at least a couple of observations to make here. First, NVDA is trading with its lowest Forward P/E in nearly a year. For Nvidia bulls, this is probably a reason to buy even more. In the several quarters since the stock was previously trading at these levels, the company has done nothing but prove its insane growth and potential.

And of course, we can see that Nvidia is trading at a significant premium to its peer group. This is where investors really need to step back and ask themselves one major question: What exactly is Nvidia doing that warrants this type of valuation?

To many, the answer is pretty clear. Nvidia is on the cutting edge of the artificial intelligence industry, which should put it in a leadership position in a budding market that promises to change the nature of humanity forever (also read: Two "Artificial Intelligence" Stocks You Should Buy Right Now).

Its products are also the go-to hardware for smart vehicle manufacturers, who need Nvidia’s top-of-the-line technology to power advanced in-car systems. Meanwhile, Nvidia GPUs are the top choice among serious PC gamers, which continues to be a strong core business for the company.

Moreover, Nvidia has been identified as a strong option by our proven Zacks Rank system. Our model places an emphasis on earnings estimates and positive estimate revisions, and ever-improving analyst sentiment surrounding NVDA helps the stock earn our top mark.

Over the past 30 days, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for Nvidia’s full-year earnings has gained a staggering $1.54, indicating that analysts are struggling to keep up with the company’s lightning-fast growth. Thanks to this revision activity, NVDA is sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong).

Nvidia is an expensive stock. But investors simply have to pay a premium for a company of this quality right now. NVDA is poised to outperform the market over the next one to three months, and it is on track to be a dominant tech powerhouse for years to come.

image

В конце прошлого года я купил паяльную станцию, уже успевшую получить ярлык «народная». Её достоинства: удобные жала-картриджи T12, приличная мощность (до 72W в теории), быстрый нагрев (единицы секунд), невысокая цена. (Подробнее ознакомиться со станцией можно в этом шикарном обзоре)

Купил я самую последнюю версию hardware 2.1s, и немного расстроился, увидев что прошивка старая. Разумеется руки зачесались обновить. Зная что «сердцем» паяльной станции является STM32F103C8 (популярный микропроцессор ARM Cortex-M3 производства STMicroelectronics) — тем интереснее было покопаться, т.к. я когда-то уже моргал светодиодом на STM32F4Discovery.

Тут же были припаяны 4 провода SWD интерфейса, подключен программатор, залита прошивка.
И… Станция потребовала активацию!

Я обещал по возможности порадовать их чем-то интересным и эта возможность мне выпала. Поэтому данная статья в первую очередь посвящается людям, которые жаждали «железа».

Несколько недель назад один из моих знакомых, зная, что я люблю силовую электронику, скинул мне сообщение в котором была рекламная ссылка от STMicroelectronics. В данной ссылки расказывалось о новом решение от ST в области силовой электронике — PWD13F60. У меня само понятие «силовая электроника» в первую очередь ассоциируется с TI, Infineon, Linear, но никак не с ST. Мой взгляд на ST, как на «силового» производителя, пал в первый раз, когда вышел великолепный контроллер — STSPIN32F0. Второй раз я посмотрел именно сейчас.

PWD13F60 — это микросхема, в корпусе на подобии QFN, в которой уже содержится полный мост, то есть 4 высоковольтных Mosfet, а также драйвера к ним. Первая идея, когда у меня появилась при ознакомление с даташитом: «О, да это же киловатт в кармане!», отсюда и название статьи. Я не очень люблю различные отладочные платы и предпочитаю сразу делать какой-то «боевой» проект. На базе героя данной статьи было решено сделать DC/AC инвертор.

Статью я решил разбить на две части: схемотехника и код. Сегодня я раскажу о схемотехническом решение, поделюсь библиотеками, дизайном и первыми впечатлениями. Во второй части мы реализуем принципы управления, которые были описаны в моей первой статье.

The decline was led by Qualcomm’s apprehensions of losing share in the chipset market and various license disputes.

Let’s take a look at each of the aforementioned factors.

Will Qualcomm Lose Chipset Market Dominance?

Tech giant Apple AAPL is reportedly looking for alternative chipset suppliers for its next-generation iPhones. Apple might choose Intel for its comparatively less-expensive modem chips. Notably, a shift to Intel will help Apple save around $105 million. This will help Apple reduce production costs for the next-generation iPhones, which will lower retail price.

Additionally, Qualcomm is engaged in an ongoing year-long $1-billion lawsuit related to licensing royalty payments with Apple. The dispute continues to get bitter with multiple counter moves from the companies. Also, Apple is one of the major buyers of Qualcomm’s chipsets. To this end, Qualcomm CDMA Technologies (“QCT”) segment accounts for more than 70% of total revenues. The segment reports operating results for chipset sales and system software for wireless voice and data communications. This segment accounted for 76.65% of total revenues in first-quarter fiscal 2018. Qualcomm will face a major loss if Apple discards its chipsets.

Meanwhile, Broadcom Limited AVGO, which is planning to acquire Qualcomm, is likely to face the risk of being left out of Apple’s ecosystem. Apple is expected to shift from Broadcom to Qorvo or STMicroelectronics, to opt for high-frequency filtering technology or wireless charging in its 12th-generation handsets.

We believe that Apple is moving from 'best available' to 'good enough' to maintain standard iPhone functionality.

Product Licensee Disputes

Qualcomm’s first-quarter fiscal 2018 and fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 GAAP and Non-GAAP results were affected by the dispute with Apple and its contract manufacturers as well as the previously disclosed dispute with another licensee. In first-quarter fiscal 2018, Qualcomm Technology Licensing (“QTL”) segment generated revenues of $1,299 million, down 28% year over year. EBT margin was 68% compared with 85% in the prior-year quarter. The aforementioned factors have led to the disappointing performance of the QTL segment. The first quarter of fiscal 2018 GAAP results include $6.0 billion charge or $4.03 per share, related to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Tax Legislation) in the United States and $1.2 billion charge or 76 cents imposed by the European Commission (EC). Qualcomm’s licensees are likely to take such actions until the disputes are resolved.

Zacks Rank & Price Performance

On Feb 6, Qualcomm has been downgraded to a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) from Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Moreover, Qualcomm has been portraying a disappointing price performance in the past three months. The company’s shares have declined 3.7% against the industry’s rally of 0.3%.

 

When compared with the market at large, the stock compares unfavorably with the S&P 500 index’s rally of 2.3%.

 

Our Take

Qualcomm’s diverse product portfolio in the semiconductor business instills optimism. Qualcomm is one of the largest manufacturer of wireless chipset based on baseband technology. The company has been striving to retain its leadership in 5G, chipset market and mobile connectivity with multiple technological achievements and launches. Qualcomm, Verizon and Ericsson jointly completed the first Massive MIMO (Multiple Input-Multiple Output) trial with a fully-compatible customer device. Qualcomm achieved a 5G data connection with the Snapdragon X50 5G modem chipset on 28GHz mmWave spectrum. Additionally, Qualcomm is teaming with Verizon and Novatel Wireless for 5G NR mmWave technology trial. Notably, Qualcomm Technologies has been at the forefront of driving Gigabit LTE and 5G in the industry.

Recently, Qualcomm received regulatory nod from South Korea’s Fair Trade Commission and European Commission for the pending NXP Semiconductors NXPI buyout. China is yet to approve the deal.

Despite the ongoing lawsuit, it is unlikely that Qualcomm will be completely out of Apple's ecosystem. This is because the company’s 5G technologies are likely to surpass Intel's, which will put Qualcomm in a competitive position. 

More Stock News: This Is Bigger than the iPhone!

It could become the mother of all technological revolutions. Apple sold a mere 1 billion iPhones in 10 years but a new breakthrough is expected to generate more than 27 billion devices in just 3 years, creating a $1.7 trillion market.

Zacks has just released a Special Report that spotlights this fast-emerging phenomenon and 6 tickers for taking advantage of it. If you don't buy now, you may kick yourself in 2020.

<![CDATA[Intel (INTC) Looks Good: Stock Adds 10.6% in Session]]> Intel Corporation INTC was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 11% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $42.50 to $46.85 in the past one-month time frame.

The move came after the company reported strong fourth-quarter 2017 results.

The company has seen a mixed track record when it comes to estimate revisions of one increase and one decrease over the past few weeks, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter remained unchanged. The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Intel currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) while its Earnings ESP is negative.  

Another stock worth considering in the Semiconductor – General industry is STMicroelectronics N.V. STM which carries a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

<![CDATA[Alphabet Adds Cybersecurity Unit Chronicle to its Portfolio]]> Alphabet Inc. GOOGL recently announced a cybersecurity business unit called Chronicle. The new unit, under development for the past two years, has been spun out of the company's "X" research lab.

Chronicle will incorporate machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence, into its cybersecurity software. This will allow it to analyze data seamlessly and  identify cyber threats easily compared to traditional methods.

There will be two parts in the newly formed business unit, Chronicle – a cybersecurity intelligence and analytics platform, which will help enterprise customers to work with security-related data and VirusTotal, which will focus on stopping malwares.

Stephen Gillett, chief executive of Chronicle, said the business will have an edge as it would be able to access Google's automated data analysis. Plus, the process will help customers by lowering data storage costs as years of stored data can make the threat-detection process more effective and economical. It intends to sell its cybersecurity software to Fortune 500 companies.

Gillett, former chief operating officer of security company Symantec Corp, co-founded Chronicle in February 2016 with former Google cybersecurity experts, Shapor Naghibzadeh and Mike Wiacek.

Notably, shares of Alphabet have gained 25.1% in the past 12 months, outperforming the 24% rally of the S&P 500.

Chronicle’s Graduation

Chronicle is the third newly formed business unit through a process the company calls “graduating”.  As part of this, a business is spun out of Alphabet’s X moonshot division and becomes a unit of the parent company. Companies already spun off include healthcare unit, Verily and self-driving vehicle company, Waymo.

Astro Teller, head of X, also known as the "captain of moonshoots", started working on cybersecurity technology after realizing that cyberattacks have become a pressing issue. Teller said, “Solving this problem isn’t simply a question of time and trusting that we’ll catch up eventually. We have to start fresh and look at the problem from new angles”.

Gillett said in a blog post, “We’ve also been working with a number of Fortune 500 companies who’ve provided invaluable counsel on the shape and direction of our work, and some are already testing a preview release of our new cybersecurity intelligence platform in an early alpha program.”

But, at this point, we do not know much about Chronicle as Gillett, on a conference call, declined to explain how its technology works. He also refrained from stating the exact number of companies already testing the service, which makes it hard to predict its future.

Our Take

Alphabet’s abundant cash balance and its existing customer base should give Chronicle a  headstart in the cyber security race. According to market researcher Gartner, the global cyber security market is worth around $100 billion and if capitalized properly, it can  further boost the company’s revenies. But it is not going to be a walk in the park even for Alphabet as the cyber security market already has some established players. Also, attempts made by Internet search and networking companies to join the cyber security business have also declined.

Avivah Litan, vice president at Gartner, said, "Being the heavy hitter and even having small teams spun out of that doesn’t translate to instant success."

Zacks Rank & Stocks to Consider

Alphabet has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

Some better-ranked stocks in the broader technology sector are STMicroelectronics N.V. STM, SMART Global Holdings, Inc. SGH and Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. MLNX, all sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

STMicroelectronics, SMART Global Holdings and Mellanox have a long-term expected earnings growth rate of 5%, 15% and 16%, respectively.

Today's Stocks from Zacks' Hottest Strategies

It's hard to believe, even for us at Zacks. But while the market gained +18.8% from 2016 - Q1 2017, our top stock-picking screens have returned +157.0%, +128.0%, +97.8%, +94.7%, and +90.2% respectively.

And this outperformance has not just been a recent phenomenon. Over the years it has been remarkably consistent. From 2000 - Q1 2017, the composite yearly average gain for these strategies has beaten the market more than 11X over. Maybe even more remarkable is the fact that we're willing to share their latest stocks with you without cost or obligation.
