The new NoTA system architecture opens up the market for competition

05.06.2008
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 maaretta.torro@vtt.fi.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
