[citation][nom]ajay_vishvanathan[/nom]haha.. Germans excel in engineering.. Japs the tech.. americans in investing.. chinese copying..[/citation]
no offence but the truth is in between.
Germans after the WW2 had great support from other countries to rebuild Germany. Now in E.U. they had most of their products consumed by the weak countries in the E.U.. Spain, Greece, Portugal e.t.c. had something like a contract to import goods from germany or export their products to Germany/France and then they resell them to other countries making more profit (olive oil from spain exported to Italy then Italy puts its label on it and resells it to Russia at a higher price).
Japs started from the same place that Chinese are now. First of all their cars were bad copies from European cars.
They started going to car exhibitions with cameras and recorded every new feature they haven't seen. They made their cars in the begining by actually reverse engeneering other advanced products from other makers.
In the last 40 years they have a huge technological advance and a huge manufactoring capability. Japan is the 1st country in the world that has almost zero primary material in their ground but they have the biggest amount of exports in the world. This is really amazing.
Last but not least, China. China is a working machine, they can make everything. They create something even if they don't know how to make it. Most of their products are flawed but they continue to make them better. 1 or 2 years ago there was an article saying that china bought a few thousand Xeon cpus for a huge server. After that a goverment representer said that that was a very expensive purchase so we must start making our own server cpus.
This is a threat to all cpu makers because if the chinese say something there is a great possibility that they will do it.
Anyway, this guy also reported that the chinese will be competing Intel in the server cpu market by the early 2020.
Only time will tell.
In conclusion, do not underestimate those "little bastards"(just joking) because they have great patients and they never give up. Chinese prove that.
P.S. india is getting into the "tech-game" will great expectations(especially on lowering the cost of products)
P.S.2: Lenovo(china) lowered the price of laptops when it bought the pc/laptop devision from IBM and the result is the drop of the OEM computer prices.

This surprised me too. We rarely hear about legitimate patents these days and I assume that's at last related to the absolute stupidity and/or greed we see in these corporate systems. Thank you Tom's for momentarily allowing me to reinvest faith in humanity... But how long can this euphoria last before something worse comes along? Hopefully more than a few hours.

Its PIN photodiodes - not pinned. An acronym - P-type/Intrinsic/N-type.

Could you guys at least Google stuff or check Wikipedia before you write about things you don't understand.

So here's a search. Look at it. "Pinned" is used in patent applications.
