21 02 2018

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - February 21, 2018) - Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE: AVYA), a global market leader in contact center and unified communications solutions as well as call taking solutions for public safety communication centers, praised the United States Congress for passing "The Kari's Law Act of 2017" which requires direct dial access to 9-1-1 services from all devices. Emergency 9-1-1 services commenced in this country fifty years ago on February 16, when the first 9-1-1 call was placed in Haleyville, Alabama. With the signing of Kari's Law on the anniversary date of that call, these services will now be available directly across all devices. The campaign to pass Kari's Law began in December 2013, when the namesake of the bill, Kari Hunt was murdered by her estranged husband in a hotel room in Marshall, Texas. Hunt's 9-year-old daughter attempted to dial 9-1-1 but was unable to reach emergency resources because the multi-line phone required a "9" to be...

Flip Chip Technology Market Global Trends, Comprehensive Analysis, Opportunities, Competitive Landscape and Potential of Industry from 2018-2023

21 02 2018

Pune, India -- 02/21/2018 -- Market Highlights:Flip-chip refers to semiconductors that are mounted with the active side down. Flip chip assembly offers many advantages. A key advantage is improved electrical performance. The small bumps of flip chip interconnection provide short electrical paths, which yield excellent electrical properties with low capacitance, inductance, and resistance. This results in greatly improved high-frequency performance compared to other interconnection methods such as chip-and-wire. Another important advantage of flip-chip assembly is its compactness. The electrical connection pads on the chip and substrate surfaces can be laid out as an area array, rather than around the periphery of the chip. This 2D-array structure can save chip space and reduce the footprint of the chip on the substrate.Flip chip assembly has gained acceptance in a wide range of low-end and high-end electronic products. Miniaturization, enhanced the electrical performance, and high interconnection...
