    Report Overview

    Bidirectional charging is a crucial trend in the evolution of EVs, with three primary application types: Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), Vehicle-to-Home (V2H), and Vehicle-to-Load (V2L). While V2G optimizes grid load balancing and power dispatch, it involves multiple endpoints. This not only necessitates bidirectional charging capability in the vehicles but also requires bidirectional V2G charging equipment, requiring collaboration with aggregator energy service providers and public power grids. Its application scope can be either broad or narrow. In contrast, V2H requires additional infrastructure, while V2L is solely vehicle-dependent, allowing the charging of small appliances via a built-in bidirectional charger (OBC), offering convenience during outdoor activities or work and is the fastest bidirectional charging application to implement.

    [Selected Topics] Development of Image Signal Processors and Computational Photography and Progress in Overcoming Physical Limitations of Smartphone Cameras


    Telecommunications , Consumer Electronics


    Today, using smartphones to take photos has become a popular way for people to record and share everyday memories. Camera performance has also become an important factor for consumers when deciding to purchase a new smartphone. However, unlike traditional digital single-lens reflex cameras (DSLRs), smartphones are designed to be lightweight and slim. Therefore, adopting a larger CMOS image sensor (CIS) or a heavier lens assembly to improve photoshoot is not practical. To overcome this physical limitation, advanced image signal processors (ISPs) and innovative computational photography algorithms are used to significantly enhance the imaging quality of smartphone cameras. These solutions can effectively compensate for the shortcoming of not being able to incorporate larger optical components into a smartphone camera.
