The new NoTA system architecture opens up the market for competition

The business impact of the new architecture is discussed in the NoTA2008 Conference organized by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.

NoTA (Network on Terminal Architecture) is positioned to revolutionize the development of mobile and embedded system device platforms by enabling subsystem and technology innovations also at hardware level.

NoTA will radically decrease the amount of integration work required in product development, and consequently increase fair competition between technology vendors. The objective of NoTA is to develop into a design flow which unites different industries, becoming a concrete example of digital convergence. The NoTA2008 Conference organized by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is the first international event focusing on this subject.

VTT has been doing research on embedded system design for 10 years and considers NoTA to have significant impact in the future.

The next big turning point in the industry is expected to be the diffusion of digital convergence. This means that products and services will be designed in the same way irrespective of the type of industry. The same design flow will be applied for developing houses, cars, and mobile phones alike. The launch of NoTA is the first time that digital convergence is truly put into practice. The NoTA concept was initially developed by Nokia Research Center, but has now been adopted by a growing number of companies. The royalty-free licensing and usage models will support the openness and rapid exploitation of NoTA.

NoTA is a modular service based system architecture for mobile and embedded devices. It aims at solving the gaps between current product platforms and future requirements by proving superior performance and making effective horizontalisation possible via eased integration.

NoTA entails various benefits in product development. Time-to-market is faster thanks to NoTA sub-systems, which reduce the time needed for vendor-specific requirements definition, implementation and integration phases. Scalability in integration level allows product companies to do fast cost-optimization without major R&D effort. Cost reductions are also achieved through more open competition, and reduced sub-system adaptation work. NoTA cuts down the complexity of devices, and clears the way for radical technology innovations also at hardware level by making the business more open. Moreover, NoTA helps product companies to meet end-user needs through enabling higher performance and completely new features in digital convergence devices.

The NoTA2008 Conference organized in Helsinki on 11th June will bring together industry representatives from all over the world to hear how NoTA will change the market. Top speakers will address new business opportunities, service concepts and technology issues developing within the NoTA ecosystem.

NoTA2008 Conference Wed 11th June, 9.00 – 17.30
Hilton Hotel Kalastajatorppa, Kalastajatorpantie 1, Helsinki
There is a possibility for interviewing the keynote speakers at 10.30. To register for this press conference please register by e-mail to

Im Focus: Novel light sources made of 2D materials

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.

So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
