HONG KONG, March 20 (Bernama) -- At 10:00 on March 18th, at the FILMART 2019 held by HKTDC, Huanyu Entertainment and TVB reached a cooperation for copyright of the new TV series Court Lady,
produced by Huanyu Entertainment. Yu Zheng, the gold medal producer, would be the chief producer and artistic director. At the scene, Le Yang, the co-founder and CEO of Huanyu Entertainment, signed a copyright cooperation agreement with Felix To Chi Hak, Deputy General Manager of TVB. Meanwhile, starring Yitong Li and Kai Xu appeared together and shared interesting stories with the audience, which triggered a great response. In addition, a set of poster with the texture of Tang Dynasty paintings were released for the first time, in which the starring styles of Rou Fu (Yitong Li ornaments), Chumo Cheng (Kai Xu ornaments), Zhangsun Empress (Pu Miao ornaments) and Shimin Li (Yue Ma ornaments) exposed.

At the scene, when talking about the character and growth of the characters, Yitong Li said, Court Lady
was a drama full of emotions. She also released that there would be a complex emotional entanglement between herself and Kai Xu. Besides, the two starring also shared interesting things and thoughts during the preparation and shooting process with the guests. Love and joy were believed to be the key features of Court Lady
, which would distinguish it from previous costume dramas. Kai Xu and Yitong Li expressed their expectations of this drama and wish it give a surprise to Hong Kong audiences.

Polyplastics' Latest Material Development Efforts Target Electric Vehicle (EV) Applications

TOKYO, March 20 (Bernama) -- With the electrification of cars transforming the automotive industry, Polyplastics Co., Ltd., a leading global supplier of engineering plastics, is responding with innovative resin products which are successfully penetrating the electric vehicle (EV) market as a superior alternative to metals. The company's DURANEX (R) PBT and DURAFIDE (R) PPS materials -- targeted for engine peripheral parts such power control units (PCUs) -- deliver high insulating properties and lower water absorption while meeting harsh operating conditions (-40 C to 150 C, up to 95% relative humidity).


Polyplastics' DURANEX (R) PBT CG7030 provides lower water absorption and high tracking properties (CTI: 600V) for high-voltage parts such as PCUs. The material ensures high reliability for high-voltage parts that do not gain enough creepage distance. Water and salt can penetrate high-voltage parts and cause tracking issues; so materials with high CTI values are required.

Koichi Sakamoto, Director behind "ULTRAMAN," "KAMEN RIDER," "SUPER SENTAI" and "POWER RANGERS," Creates New Era of "Ninja Super Hero" Ready to Be Released Worldwide

TOKYO, March 20 (Bernama) --

- World's First Project Interlocking Animation and Samurai Drama –

Samurai Drama Channel, Japan's paid television broadcasting exclusively Japanese period dramas, operated by Nihon Eiga Broadcasting Corporation along with its production committee, announced on March 20 the release of a new Japanese special-effect period drama called "BLACKFOX: Age of the Ninja" produced by director Koichi Sakamoto. This will be the world's first project interlocking animation and Samurai drama, with the original SF action animation "BLACKFOX," produced by director Kazuya Nomura of Studio 3Hz.

Toshiba´s New Small Surface Mount LDO Regulators Lower Power Consumption and Bring Longer Operating Times to Battery-driven Devices

TOKYO, March 20 (Bernama) -- Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation ("Toshiba") has launched two new series of small surface mount LDO regulators for application in the power supply of mobile devices, imaging and audio-visual products. The 40 regulators in the TCR5BM series support a dropout voltage as low as 100mV and a maximum output current of 500mA, and 40 more in the TCR8BM series extend support to 170mV and 800mA. The TCR5BM and TCR8BM series are both available with VOUT as low as 0.8V, or as high as 3.6V.

Both series are suited to applications that include power supply for MCU, RF devices, and camera CMOS sensors in mobile devices or imaging and audio-visual equipment, which increasingly use lower voltages around 1V.

Crocus Technology Unveils its 2nd Generation TMR Linear Sensor with Unparalleled Temperature Stability

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 20 (Bernama) -- Crocus Technology Inc., a leading supplier of disruptive Tunnel Magneto-Resistance (TMR) sensors, today announces the CT100 device, an advanced, high-performance linear (1D) magnetic sensor based on Crocus’ patented and unique TMR-based technology. The CT100 has best-in-class performance across a wide temperature range coupled with an extremely low linearity error, low hysteresis, and low noise which enables it to address many consumer, industrial and automotive applications and markets. The CT100 outperforms competitors’ xMR or Hall-based linear magnetic sensor technology available today in terms of performance, deviation over temperature, current consumption, and overall robustness. The CT100 does not require any expensive flux guides or concentrators, chopping circuits or set/reset pulses and operates over a wide magnetic field range.

Crocus’s revolutionary Magnetic Logic Unit™ (MLU™) TMR technology is implemented into the CT100 with a single full-bridge magnetic resistor network which delivers high gain and high accuracy. The CT100 senses the presence of a magnetic field (whether from a magnet or a field generated by a current carrying conductor); and outputs a differential signal with a linearity error that is less than ±0.5% over a magnetic field range from -20 mT to +20 mT with negligible hysteresis and extremely low noise. The robust device operates from -40°C to +150°C and yields a predictable temperature coefficient of sensitivity (TCS) of less than 300 ppm/°C and a temperature coefficient of offset (TCO) which does not exceed 3 µV/V/°C across a supply voltage range from 1.0 V to 5.5 V.

Despite Brexit Uncertainty, Business Schools in UK Continue to See Strong International Demand

RESTON, Va., March 19 (Bernama) -- In response to the initial Brexit vote in June 2016, the Graduate Management Admission Council™ (GMAC™) has been tracking Graduate Management Admission Test™ (GMAT™) examinee interest in studying in the UK.  This has included periodic surveys of non-U.K. citizens who sent a GMAT score report to a UK business school program, as an indication of where they are interested in studying. In the immediate aftermath of the vote, it was unclear what the impact would be on the international flow of students to UK programs, which are heavily reliant on enrollees from other countries. Brexit, it’s been feared, could restrict or complicate the student visa process and dampen international candidates’ postgraduation job prospects in the UK, both because of possible changes to work visa policies and jobs leaving the UK.

However, the most recent survey findings, from December 2018, show that 54 percent of respondents overall say Brexit has no impact on their decision to study in the UK, up from 46 percent in December 2016. Likely bolstered by a falling pound and reduced interest in other study destinations around the world over the same period, there has been an increase in candidates’ selecting the UK as their first-choice country for their business school experience.
