Electric Vehicles Go To Two Wheels

What To Expect With A Zero Motorcycles’ Electric Vehicles, I mean, Motorcycles.

With growing popularity, electric vehicles have started taking over. Some of the most popular brands on American roads are: Bolt, Prius, Proterra, and Tesla. It is rare to see or hear of a fully electric or hybrid motorcycle. Harley and Honda are two of the more popular brands of motor bikes. Their customers have expressed interest in the greener approach to riding but not many startups have been successful. Zero Motorcycles, Lightning Motorcycle, and Alta Motors are some US Companies still in the game.

Zero Motorcycles CTO, Abe Askenazi, has been in the motorcycle industry for almost twenty years. He said right now a lot of Zero Motorcycles’ customers buy the company’s EV bikes alongside market-leading V-twins and V-4s. To him, that indicates Zero’s bikes perform at the same or better levels as riders’ long-held favorites. He continued, electric bikes are quiet, so riders can hear what’s happening around them, and won’t disturb the peace, which their neighbors appreciate. That quietness is one reason police departments buy Zero Motorcycles for their fleets. They can ride at any hour, and approach suspects stealthily if they drive electric.

Zero’s products range from lightweight “hot rods” to off-road models that cost anywhere from about $8,500 to $16,000. Some of the new bikes are promising 200 miles per charge, which is a significant improvement from past models. The motorcycles’ easy to read instruments, speed control, and acceleration are some of Zero’s customers’ favorite qualities.

Askenazi stated, “Optimization of chemistry has gotten us here. The beautiful thing is that batteries are plug-and-play. When that battery comes that will give you 1,000 miles, we’ll be able to use it. Where the industry is going though is not so much a bigger battery to go further between charges, but faster charging so you can go grocery shopping, plug it in, come back and then you’re ready to go again.”

The CTO said that batteries will eventually weigh less and take up less space on the e-bikes. This will allow more space for cargo and other components. Askenazi stated, “You gain a lot of practicality with this bike.” He believes over time there will be many improvements with lighter weight and stronger materials.

You read that correctly. After 14 years of making smartphones in-house, the once ultra prevalent phone company has opted to revitalize its business model by not only outsourcing its phone production but also focus on the software side of the business. Comparatively speaking, the sales figures of smartphones in the second quarter are dismal to say the least. The company states that it only sold roughly 400,000 smartphones during the quarter. This is not only low for smartphone sales in general but it’s also a lesser number than it had recorded in the quarter previous.

In May, the company’s management told Bloomberg that it would know by September whether it would be profitable in its smartphone business. And now we’re seeing things like this new direction come about. Believe it or not, in a world of hundreds of different kinds of touchscreen devices, Blackberry actually produced it’s first touchscreen-only Android device in July of…2016! It’s called Dtek50 and to reduce costs the handset was based on a phone manufactured by TCL.

“Blackberry had made no secret of the fact that it might shut down its own phone-making business. Pushing it out to a third party is a sensible solution – but any manufacturer making Blackberry branded devices will ultimately face the same challenges.”

Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT) Showcases microLite Technology to Worship Market at the WFX Expo 2016

SARASOTA, Fla., Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Integrated Microwave Technologies (“IMT”), an xG Technology business unit and the leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the broadcast, sports, entertainment and law enforcement markets, announces it is showcasing the microLite family of products, including the RF Central 58microLite HD System to the house of worship (“HOW”) market at the WFX Expo 2016 (Booth 945).

“Our microLite technology presents an affordable, reliable method of wireless camera transmission without breakup or pixilation to the worship market,” says John Payne IV, president, Integrated Microwave Technologies. “We are excited to showcase our 58microLite Mini Kit, our most affordable iteration of our microLite technology, at WFX this year and invite all attendees to experience this technology for themselves.”

George Schmitt, CEO and Chairman of the Board of xG Technology, said, “The growing interest in IMT’s microLite technology by the house of worship sector underscores the broad number of applications and markets that can be positively impacted by its real-time, high quality video links.”

The 58microLite HD Mini Kit is ideal for any house of worship application that requires wireless transmission, providing the ability to capture images not only within the HOW’s walls, but also throughout the grounds as well. For those facilities that provide broadcasts or online streaming capabilities, the microLite allows a facility to provide its viewers with a greater sense that they are present. In addition, the microLite is also extremely easy to use, which is important since many HOW camera operators are volunteers, not industry professionals.

The 58microLite HD Mini Kit is a highly portable professional-grade MPEG-4 COFDM HD wireless camera transmission link capable of providing high-quality video at distances over two miles, line-of-sight (LOS). Developed for the next generation of HD capable compact cameras, the 58microLite system is available in either licensed or unlicensed bands. It provides customers with the highest quality video without breakup or pixilation. Its size, weight and performance makes it ideal for point-of-view and any type of live event coverage, including services, sermons or readings.

WFX—the Worship Facilities Conference and Expo—is the nation’s largest conference focused on the house of worship market. The two and half day event provides the ministry teams (including worship, tech, facilities and administration) from churches of all sizes and traditions hands-on education and training in new tools and technologies

Rubicon Announces Malaysia Facility Closure

Rubicon Technology, Inc. (RBCN), today announced plans to cease all production activities and shut down its Penang, Malaysia facility. Production activities at the Penang facility are expected to cease by November 30, 2016, with the shutdown of the facility to be completed by the end of the year. The Company’s Malaysia facility has been primarily engaged in producing polished and patterned substrates for the LED market and the decision was made in order for the Company to focus on the optical and industrial sapphire market for the foreseeable future.

Bill Weissman, the Company’s CEO, said, “The sapphire industry continues to be very challenging with pricing for LED sapphire products continuing to decline throughout this year. Given the market conditions, our strategy has been to build a business more focused on the optical and industrial sapphire market, where we have greater differentiation from our competitors and have interesting new technologies in development. We had also been trying to stay in the LED substrate market by limiting our product offering to six-inch diameter wafers where there is less competition and working hard to reduce cost to make that product profitable. While we made significant progress on that front, the continual decline of prices has made the prospects of becoming profitable in the LED substrate market unlikely for the foreseeable future. As a result, we have decided to focus on the optical and industrial sapphire market at this time.”

The Company cites its high quality crystal, strong and developing U.S. customer base, and optical finishing capability as strong differentiators in the optical and industrial sapphire market and believes there are emerging applications in that market which will drive revenue and margin growth in coming years.

About Rubicon Technology, Inc.

Rubicon Technology, Inc. is an advanced materials provider specializing in monocrystalline sapphire products for optical systems and specialty electronic devices. Rubicon has a proprietary technology platform and expertise extending from the preparation of raw aluminum oxide through sapphire crystal growth and fabrication, enabling Rubicon to supply custom sapphire products with superior quality and precision. Rubicon is ISO 9001 certified and ITAR registered.

Though Elon Musk isn’t building a Hyperloop transportation system physically, SpaceX is currently in the process of building a test track for Hyperloop pods. SpaceX is hosting a Hyperloop Pod Design Competition for engineering teams and students, and 23 winners were chosen earlier in 2016 to help build their pod prototypes. They also will race them on the test track, which consists of a 1-mile tube with the ability of achieving 99.8% vacuum.

Pod testing would be a major milestone for Hypeloop technology. The two main companies battling to build the first operational Hyperloop systems, Hyperloop One, and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, currently have not initiated any pod tests. HyperloopOne has begun construction on its own test track in Nevada, but the SpaceX project seems a lot further along.

Previously when SpaceX first released the competition, the timing of the final round, which entailed the actual test of final prototype pods, was set for summer of this year. Though, in July, SpaceX announced that would be pushed back till January 2017.
