    YAPHANK, NY--(Marketwired - August 1, 2013) - 1-Source Electronic Components announced on its blog (http://www.1sourcecomponents.com/blog/?p=3592) that it has completed its 12th year in business and is celebrating its 12th anniversary with 12 months of customer appreciation. To celebrate, 1-Source will be conducting different promotions (to be announced through their blog and mailing list) during each of the next 12 months, including giving away free iPads, and offering free shipping and discounts on various types of products such as connectors, LCD displays, and LED light bulbs.

    Back in July of 2001, when the Lodato brothers, Richard and Robert, opened their first electronic components distributing office and warehouse in Port Jefferson Station, New York, the electronics manufacturing industry was very different from today. Many of the electronic devices that we take for granted now were only vague concepts in the imaginations of some very talented innovators. And the components needed to build these devices, such as transistors, resistors, and capacitors, were sourced and distributed using old fashioned methods which were slow and tedious.

    The brothers combined their talents to develop a complete electronic component sourcing and distribution system utilizing a customer friendly website, proprietary worldwide part-search software, and a team of customer service professionals to assist and speed up the process. And so 1-Source Electronic Components was founded in July of 2001 with the mission of using modern technology to make the process of finding and sourcing hard-to-find electronic components as easy as possible for the buyers and engineers of electronics manufacturers.

    "The job of a component buyer typically involves going to many different sources to find everything they need. We wanted to simplify their job by providing a central source and single point of contact for all hard-to-find as well as franchised electronic components, connectors, cables, hardware, tools, just about anything used by electronic manufacturers to make their products," said Robert Lodato, the company's Vice President.

    "I know 1-Source Components from 11 years of support for hard to find parts. From past experience, we recognize 1-Source is a reliable source. Thanks for your support in our success. I believe the vendor is also important in our success. I wish you good success in the future." - SLN Technologies

    Over the past 12 years, 1-Source has developed relationships with thousands of companies in the electronics industry, including some of the world's largest and most well-known manufacturers of electronic devices, automobiles, and aircraft. Among their regular customers are General Electric, Honeywell, Boeing, Caterpillar, Rolls Royce, Ford Motor Corp., Delphi, Cummins, Pratt & Whitney, Xerox, Flextronics, Texas Instruments, and NASA.

    The past 12 years have also presented opportunities to develop important relationships with the world's best-known electronic components and parts manufacturers. 1-Source has become a franchised distributor for some manufacturers, such as NTE, Amerline, Zenaro, FIAMM, LEDtronics, Keltron Connectors, and Solmar Lighting.

    For more information about the company, its history, or its future plans, you can visit www.1sourcecomponents.com or call 1-631-642-2479 (1-800-966-8826 toll-free in the USA).

    GWANG JU-SI GEYONGGI-DO, SOUTH KOREA--(Marketwired - August 1, 2013) - A struggle over patent infringement between JUSUNG Engineering Co., Ltd. (KOSDAQ: 036930), and Applied Materials, the two biggest panel equipment suppliers in the world, has been going on for nearly 10 years. In 2011, the Taiwan Hsinchu District Court issued a first-instance judgment confirming that JUSUNG did not infringe on Applied Materials' patent. In response to appeal by Applied Materials, the Intellectual Property Court ("IP Court") July 31, 2013 issued a second-instance judgment in which JUSUNG still prevailed. This case can be appealed with the Supreme Court.

    Applied Materials occupied a large market share globally for sales of the asserted plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition system (PECVD). In view of the potential market in Taiwan for panel, JUSUNG tried to enter the market, and successfully sold its 5th generation of PECVD system to CHIMEI in 2003, which motivated other panel manufacturers to approach JUSUNG for its products. However, JUSUNG's success broke Applied Materials' long-standing dominance in the panel market, and represented a threatening signal to Applied Materials' market share. Consequently, Applied Materials asserted that JUSUNG's 5th generation of PECVD system infringed its patent and filed a petition for preliminary injunction order in 2003, preventing JUSUNG from selling its PECVD product to Taiwanese panel manufacturers, including CHIMEI. Applied Materials also filed a lawsuit in 2004 seeking NT$178,200,000 in compensation. The Hsinchu District Court dismissed Applied Materials' suit, and Applied Materials filed an appeal with the IP Court.

    Regarding the second-instance judgment just issued by the IP court July 31, 2013, JUSUNG expressed its opinion that it again proves that the PECVD asserted by Applied Materials was solely invented and developed by JUSUNG, that JUSUNG has confidence that its products do not involve in any infringement, and that JUSUNG will defend itself against any attack against its business from competitors.

    ESPOO, FINLAND--(Marketwired - August 1, 2013) - Qualcomm IZat employs HERE Venue Maps to improve indoor positioning for location-based apps

    HERE, a Nokia business, today announced that it will make available its indoor Venue Maps to Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated. Leveraging indoor map data from HERE that is tightly coupled to the core indoor positioning engine will help Qualcomm IZat™ location technologies deliver more precise positioning (within 3-5 meters) to mobile devices inside buildings. Improving the overall indoor location experience for consumers, this combination is expected to accelerate the development and use of compelling location-based experiences as well as promotions in shopping malls, transportation hubs and entertainment venues around the globe.

    "In our quest to deliver location awareness everywhere, Qualcomm Atheros is propagating indoor location capabilities to ensure the best possible experiences in a wide variety of places," said Cormac Conroy, vice president of the mobile, computing and location business unit at Qualcomm Atheros. "Our collaboration with HERE complements the capabilities of our IZat location platform to deliver the exceptional accuracy that is required for businesses and app developers looking for ways to reach mobile consumers and create additional revenue opportunities from location-based services."

    To map buildings, HERE mapmakers visit venues from airports to zoos to sports complexes, museums and other facilities around the world to ensure map data is precise and no detail is forgotten. They collect building floor plans and then validate against the real world which includes double-checking the names of points of interest and ensuring that rich features such as ATM machines, restrooms and escalators are included.

    "Indoor spaces are among the new frontiers in mapping and HERE is uniquely positioned to bring its global leadership in outdoor mapping to inside venues," said Cliff Fox, senior vice president of Location Content at HERE. "Not only have we been the first to map some of the most recognized buildings in the world, but we also offer the world's broadest coverage of indoor spaces with currently more than 9,000 venues consisting of 50,000 unique buildings mapped in 69 countries. With our continuously expanding reach in coverage and focus on efforts to improve accuracy, we can support Qualcomm Atheros in its quest to provide access to accurate location information and services to consumers as they move about venues."

    Venue Maps complement Qualcomm Atheros' end-to-end IZat indoor positioning capabilities to deliver always-on location awareness to mobile devices in more places. IZat is comprised of Qualcomm Atheros' broad technology portfolio, including cellular, global navigation satellite system (GNSS), Wi-Fi, sensor and cloud-based assistance solutions, as well as its widely deployed location core, already found in more than one billion devices on mobile networks worldwide.

    NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 1, 2013) - Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today shared further details around its global information capital survey, which revealed key insights into how organizations in different countries and cultures leverage information assets.

    Across regions, results showed that while organizations recognize the benefits of pushing information more broadly to stakeholders, they are failing to effectively do it. Information sharing is largely restricted to executive management, mid-level management, and knowledge workers, while little consideration is given to the needs of operational employees, the non-IT workers who rely on company and customer information to work effectively. Customer, partner, and supplier information needs are also widely neglected. Additionally, IT managers across the globe are currently not putting enough focus on innovation, new revenue generation, or increasing customer retention, three areas that hold huge business potential and could be improved with a more encompassing information-sharing strategy.

    The survey also revealed some interesting differences in how countries approach information delivery, where current focus lies, and where improvement and investment are needed to maximize the return on information capital. While organizations in each country have different strengths and weaknesses, none are using information capital to its maximum potential. Below are the key findings from each of the countries surveyed.

    France

    • French organizations focus on top-tier stakeholders, inhibiting more widespread information sharing outside of knowledge workers and management employees
    • Sharing information with customers is deemed more important than sharing it with operational employees, who are not perceived as key decision-makers; 43 percent of respondents indicate customers as an information delivery priority, versus 34 percent who indicate operational employees
    • A tools-centric approach is expected moving forward, meaning that more employees will be armed with advanced tools that require specific learning and expertise
    • Big data will be a key area of investment in the coming months

    Germany

    • German respondents recognize the impact of information sharing on employee culture and productivity improvement; 68 percent of respondents noted improved productivity as a key result, which exceeds all other countries surveyed
    • To build on these proven productivity gains, Germans will continue to drive more pervasive BI in the coming months, with data visualization recognized as a key area of investment
    • German companies recognize internal employees as decision-makers and drive more pervasive BI for this group, but they fail to recognize external stakeholders as equally important and do not consider their needs for enterprise data, thus limiting the effectiveness of their information assets

    The Netherlands

    • Of all the groups surveyed, Dutch organizations lead the way in terms of soliciting employee input and connecting with external partners, with 68 percent of respondents doing both regularly
    • Data mining and self-service BI were indicated as the most frequently used solutions today, with future BI investments expected to align with the needs of all stakeholders

    Spain

    • Seventy-two percent of Spanish respondents indicated employee productivity and performance as the key motivator for improved information sharing, yet less than half of respondents indicated that providing operational employees with information was necessary
    • Nearly half of all respondents believed that internal politics or organizational culture currently inhibit widespread information delivery, and 32 percent said sharing information beyond management levels was not supported or encouraged
    • Spanish organizations currently fail to consider the needs of all stakeholder groups in their information access strategies

    UK

    • Organizations in the UK recognize the benefits of sharing information beyond the top tier of employees with 68 percent, agreeing that it is important to arm operational employees with data; UK organizations lead the way in extending data to customers and external partners
    • Two-thirds of UK respondents regularly connect with customers to solicit feedback; operational employees and external partners are also tapped in this capacity
    • UK companies are successful in taking a 360-degree approach to information capital, allowing them to effectively consider the needs of all stakeholders
    • The next step for UK companies is to focus on information delivery and BI tools to improve widespread utilization

    U.S.

    • American IT managers are more likely to use information for innovation, revenue generation, and customer loyalty activities than their European counterparts
    • There is a 39 percentage point gap between the stated importance of providing mid-level management with data access and the reality of data delivery; despite recognizing its importance, U.S. companies fail to effectively share information with even the top tier of employees
    • Of all countries surveyed, U.S. respondents are least likely to support the idea that all employees should have access to information to be more effective
    • U.S. organizations must address current information management strategies if they hope to maximize returns on their information capital

    "Information capital is a critical asset for companies across industries, yet failing to disseminate that information to key stakeholders effectively negates its value and reduces related business opportunities," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "Our findings in this global survey indicate a huge gap between understanding the value of information capital and taking action to use those assets to their full potential. There exists here an enormous business opportunity for companies who are willing to rethink their information management strategy and work to improve sharing and access for a broader group of employees, customers, and partners."
