Bajaj Auto commences production of Kratos, its most powerful bike ever

first_imgBajaj Auto has commenced the production of its biggest and most powerful 400cc bike. The first batch of the bike was rolled out today at Bajaj Auto’s Chakan plant.What makes the roll-out even more special is that this came out of an assembly line that is managed only by women engineers. This is a milestone event for Bajaj Auto as a manufacturer embracing the best technology as well an organisation committed to gender diversity.Also Read:  Comparison: Hero Achiever 150cc vs Bajaj Pulsar 150ccThis is a historic moment for Bajaj Auto as exactly 15 years back in November 2001 the company had launched its iconic brand Pulsar which went on to define the sports motorcycle market in India. Pulsar continues to be a market leader in the sports segment for 15 years. The new big bike model, which is scheduled to be launched around mid-December 2016, is also expected to dominate Indian roads in this segment for the coming decade.According to Mr. Eric Vas, President (Motorcycle Business), Bajaj Auto, “We are proud to announce this historic roll out at Chakan today with our all women assembly line. Our new bike will set new benchmarks in its segment. There is already a lot of buzz, anticipation and excitement about the bike and its features, price and name. However, all our patrons and bike enthusiasts will have to wait for some time, till we share details of the new offering during the launch next month.”last_img read more

Lattice: MachX03D FPGA enhances security with hardware root-of-trust capabilities

first_imgLattice Semiconductor announced the MachXO3D FPGA for securing systems against a variety of threats. Unsecured systems can lead to data and design theft, product cloning and overbuilding, and device tampering or hijacking. With MachXO3D, OEMs can simplify the implementation of robust, comprehensive and flexible hardware-based security for all system components. MachXO3D can protect, detect and recover itself and other components from unauthorized firmware access at every stage of a system’s lifecycle, from the point of manufacturing all the way to the system’s end of life.Component firmware is an increasingly popular attack vector for cyberattacks. In 2018, security vulnerabilities rendered over 3 billion chips in systems of all types vulnerable to data theft via the exploitation of firmware vulnerabilities. Unsecured firmware also exposes OEMs to the financial and brand reputation risks associated with device hijacking (for use in DDoS attacks) and device tampering or destruction. Failure to address these risks can negatively impact a company’s reputation and financial performance.When used to implement system control functions, MachXO3 FPGA devices are typically the “first-on/last-off” component on circuit boards.  By integrating security and system control functions, the MachXO3D becomes the first link in chain of trust that protects entire systems.With MachXO3D, Lattice is enhancing the device configuration and programming steps in the manufacturing process. These enhancements, in combination with MachXO3D’s security features, protect systems by securing communication between the MachXO3D and legitimate firmware providers. This protection is in effect throughout the component’s entire lifecycle, including system manufacture, transit, installation, operation and decommissioning.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous AAEON: barebones embedded system supporting 6th and 7th gen Intel Core desktop processorsNext PROVERTHA: robust and vibration-resistant M8 stainless steel crimp flange connectorslast_img read more
