Is Your Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor Smart Enough?

Allion Labs/ Henry Hung

Fluctuating blood pressure often signals health problems. For older adults and patients with hypertension, it is even more important to monitor and track their blood pressure regularly. Thus, many doctors and experts suggest that people at higher risk should buy blood pressure monitors to check their blood pressure at home.

There are two types of blood pressure monitors: manual and digital meters. Manual meters, including mercury and aneroid manometers, are used in conjunction with a stethoscope. Since taking a blood pressure manually is relatively complicated, manual meters may not be the best choice for non-trained users.

VESA Display HDR and HDR10+ Testing Services

Allion Labs / Lexus Lee

HDMI and DisplayPort, the two dominant Audio/Video interface standards, have motivated the world to pursue higher resolution. Television and monitor vendors have been highlighting the feature of 4K, 8K, and even 10K resolution to market their products. Since 8K or 10K contents are not yet available on the market, most display vendors turn to High Dynamic Range (HDR) technologyβ€”it brings better viewing experiences to consumers with richer colors, wider contrasts, and brighter images.

LTE Routers: Throughput Conversion Performance Review

Allion Labs / Romonz Kao

Mobile communication technologies have been flourishing incredibly in recent years, and 4G LTE has become one of the most compelling innovations. These innovations also give rise to products that support mobile network applications, such as portable routers and LTE routers. LTE routers enable users to share mobile connectivity over Wi-Fi or Ethernet. When LTE routers transmit mobile data via different interfaces, defects in product design or compatibility issues between chipsets and hardware devices might degrade throughput performance.

Fixture Design – the Key Factor to Getting your Cable & Connector Certified

Allion Labs / Paul Chou

With the rapid development of technology, there is a growing demand for high-speed audio and video data transmission. The connectors and cables used by our daily public are gradually upgrading. For example, the specification of HDMI has evolved from HDMI 2.0 to HDMI 2.1, and the transmission rate is enhanced from 6.0 Gbps to 8.1Gbps. Moreover, the speed of USB 3.2 Gen 2 also reached 10 Gbps, and it is expected that USB4 will reach 20 Gbps as well, which is the same as Thunderbolt3.

Four Visual Recognition Applications and Testing Solutions

Allion Labs / Kali Chen

In recent years, image detection technology has been extensively researched and developed by academic institutions to bring the quality of smart cameras to the next level. Smart cameras have become the must-have smart gadgets for home with multifaceted advantages, such as motion detection for home surveillance system. The intelligent video analysis system in smart cameras uses computer vision, machine learning and deep learning technologies to automatically interpret the key information behind images in the same way that human vision does. This visual recognition technology has been widely employed to face recognition, human motion capture, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), and optical character recognition (OCR). In addition, smart cameras will be connected to the cloud-based platform which has implemented visual recognition technologies. It enables data to be stored cyclically in the cloud, which allows camera vendors to cut cost in host or storage equipment investment.

Key factors in Laboratory Automation

Allion Labs/ Shawn Li

Automation is currently the goal of implementation in all areas. Allion is working to transform the testing of each Logo into automation, include instrument automation, data analyzing and capturing data into a formal report. Allion completes all the test data through the instrument automation and then integrates the collected data into a complete report. Via combining these two technologies to complete the automation, it could save labor costs, improve work efficiency and reduce the error rate of human operation.

Vulnerability Detection –Foundation of Systems Assurance

In the APP development process, information assets and risk management are quite important, but in fact, many companies have no testers or have non-professional testers. To save money, most companies are only focusing on the development of APP instead of testing the potential risks, which might lead to crash down after the APP goes online. The current common platform is Kali Linux, which includes several types of tools for users to use, but we are not limited to this platform, we can still use other tools to make the test more complete.
