Chapter Three: Too Big to Fail?
Amelia and Noele raced towards Dunwich at breakneck speeds and arrived only minutes after their departure from Longbarrow.
Amelia put down Noele, who looked a little green in her face. At least she hadn’t started to scream. Some adventures did that, even A-ranks. Especially A-ranks.
As they walked through the gate a man in the coat of arms of Dunwich stepped forth, seemingly a city guard. Instead of a sword he carried a clipboard.
“Halt. For entreance you first need to pay headtax. Three copper per person.”
Amelia fished her adventurers badge out of her pocket and showed it the guardsman. “No we don’t. We are members of the adventurers guild:”
The guard shook his head. “Yeah, new law from city hall. Adventurers are no longer exempt from head tax. In fact, have you fought any monsters in the wilds?”
Noele glanced at Amelia. “I think you might have clipped a griffin on the way here.”
The guard nodded and scribbeled something down on his clipboard. “That means we have to add a small tax for that. All ressources around the city, including monsters, belong to the city after all.”
“But we didn’t even kill it.”, exclaimed Noele.
“Ah. That adds a charge animal cruelty. There is a fine for that.” The guard added another note to his clipboard. “Also, did you happen to travel on the road?”
Amelia thought about that for a moment. She had mostly stuck to low jumps just over the foliage, but they had landed on the street occassionally.
“Yeah, briefly.”
“Ah, bad news then. That road is privatly owned now, so that adds a small
Amelia rolled her eyes at this insanity. “All of these taxes and fines, are these recent additions? Proposed by some oversized lizard in a suit?”
“You mean Mr. Goldentooth? Yes, that oversized lizard has spearheaded a great deal of reforms. Has even taken office in the city hall. By the way, lizard-calling is a serious misdemeanor. There is a fine for that.”
“But you just called him a lizard too?
“Have I?”, asked the guard.
“Alright, how about you let us through and I won’t tell anybody.”
The guard gave Amelia a stern look.”Are you attempting to blackmail a member of the city watch?”
“If that is was it takes for you to let us through that blasted gate, then yes.”, Amelia said flatly.
The watchman frowned at her. “There is a fine for that. Five silver.”
Amelia sighed. “All of this is ridiculous.”
“You see, Miss. I am just doing my job here. If you have problems with the city’s tax or law code, then you have to file a complaint at the city hall and not annoy overworked guards.”
Amelia gave the guard a flat look. “And how do we logde a complaint at your city hall, when you don’t let us in?
The guard blinked “Hm. I guess I see your point.”
“So you let us in? We just want to logde a complaint.”
“But you haven’t paid your headtax, your adventuring tax, the street toll and the fines for animal cruelty and lizard-calling . I can’t let you through this gate like this.”
Noele grasped her coinpurse in resignation: “How much is it in total then?”
“Altogether that would be 16 gold and 3 silver coins. Per person, of course. Though I would advice to make it an even 20 gold pieces by purchasing the premium city pass. That’s a real bargain by the way, and would allow you to skip the wait time and fast track the organisational stuff.”
Amelia wasn’t from this world and had already amassed a small fortune. The bounty for the Miststorm riders alone would pay the fees and fines for both of them more than 50 times over. Still she balked at the price. This was her retirement fund after all. She also wouldn’t force her student to pay for her. That would be unbecoming of her, as she was Noele’s mentor.
She gave the golden-eyed fool one last glance. For just a moment she thought about giving him the Leander-treatment and literally bash some sense in that guys head. Instead she did the mature and adult thing and picked Noele by her belt. Noele groaned. She knew what would happen. Amelia flexed her calves and handily leaped over the 20 meter wall.
The guard blinked in surprise for a moment. Then he yelled: “You are in breach of the airborne transportation act! THERE. IS. A. FINE. FOR. THAT!”
Business was doing good. No, even better. Business was doing great. Gildroy gazed fondly at the enormous crates and chests, all filled with beautifully shining gold.
There was a sudden crashing sound, like wood breaking. Gildroy instantly stood up. Had one of the unpaid interns dropped a chest with money again?
He sprinted from the vault into the main room. There he saw Amelia and Noele, standing atop the splintered door.
“Ahem. Hello. The door was mahagony. Kinda pricy to replace. Please use the doornob the next time.”, he scolded
Amelia had an angry scowl on her face. “You owe me two silver and a new window.
Oh. Gildroy had already forgotten about that. Two pieces of silver.
“Oh. I forgot. My bad.”, said Gildroy. He drew his purse and pulled out a few coins. “Here you go:”
Amelia pocketed the money. “Also you are going to stop this insanity you have going on here. Give everyone their money back and I’ll let you live:”
Gildroy blinked in surprise. “You can’t be sirious, right?”
Amelia put a hand on her sword. “I am.”
Gildroy shook his head.”Never.”
Amelia smiled. “I had hoped for that. I wanted to punch you inyour lizard-visage since I met you.”
Gildroy scowled, What a barbarian.
Noele put a hand on her master’s shoulder. “Please let me have this fight. You told me, that only by challenging myself further I can grow truly strong.”
Amelia rolled her eyes. “Alright. He’s yours. Maybe this fight pushes you to S-rank.”
Gildroy shook his head. Such gall, but Norah had been much the same.
“Well, I did promise a spar.”, he said, as he armed himself with a purse filled with platinum coins.
[Nobleflame Armor]”
Golden flames coated Norah, forming into a brestplate. Very fashionable, but gold was always fashinable.
Gildroy countered with his own armor skill[ Armor of Gold] . As if carried by invible hands coins floated from the vault towards the drakling, on whom they arranged themselves like a secondary set of scales.
“Go on, you have the first strike”, he said as he picked a platinum coin from his purse.
And strike she did. Noele teleported behind him and swung her sword at him.
[Elegant Noble Slash] and [Unending Dauntless Fury]” she yelled, as she descendet into a flurry of blows.
Gildroy flicked a platinum coin. It disappeard and time slowed down to a crawl. He walked out of her attack, then the flow of time resumed.
Noele stared at the empty spot she hit repeatedly. “How? She muttered.”
“Would you kindly hurry up with your attack?”, asked Gildroy a little giddy. These fights were always fun! “[Time is Money], after all.”
[Unending Dauntless Fury] “
[Time is Money]
Noele hit nothing again.
“Noele, he can’t attack while he stops time.”, Amelia told her student.
“Besides, it is more of a potent time-slow. A hard hitting area-of-effect attack will still hit”.
Gildroy scowled at her. “Hey, the best part of any fight is to figure out how the enemie’s skills work. How will she learn anything if you take that away from her.”
Noele tried to go for a cheap shot while he talked. A quick flick of a coin brought Gildroy to safety.
“Well, now it is time for me to strike back, it would seem.”
Gildroy barreled into her. Noele stood her ground, defending with her sword. “[Titans’s Strength]”, she yelled.
Gildroy pushed back with his own strength skill. “[Gold is Strength]”, he barked. For a moment they seemed equally matched, claw against sword, but then Gildroy gained the upper hand. An A-ranked skill just couldn’t compete with an S-ranked skill.
Noele was launched through the air and impacted the wall. Gildroy flicked another platinum and time slowed for him. He dashed towards her and delivered a crushing blow just as the time-slow ended. Noele was thrown back again, this time through the wall and into the main plaza of Dunwich.
Noele quickly found back to er feet. “Big area-of-effect spells, huh? For that I have something. [Golrious Noble Slash]
All of a sudden her sword increased in size manyfold, and she swung it a Gildroy with ferocity.
Gildroy knew, he could not dodge this one with his time-slow, but tried anyways. His golden armor cracked under the barrage of blows and he flew back, towards a crowd of people.
Amelia moved with extreme speed and dragged multiple peole out of the line of fire. Luckily, because far too many people here had purchase [Life Insurance] from him. Should they come to harm…. he’d be ruined.
Oh dear. If he took another hit like that he’d lose his status as an hexillionaire.
Gildroy felt his control over his customers slipping. Quickly he summond up a bit of [Investor]-Widom to once again tighten his grip: ”People, the market has just taken a hit. That is normal. That just happens. Your savings are not in danger, in fact with the stocks low right now is the best time to invest.”
“That skill surely is something. Good, almost S-rank”, Gildroy praised.
“It would be a same if some one would steal it: [Buyout]: Purchase the skill Elegant Noble Slash.” The drakling burned hundreds of platinum coins activating that skill.
A system message apperared in front of Noele’s eyes
[Gildroy Goldentooth has acquired the skill Noble Slash]
Noele’s jaw went slack. Her sword of light and flames disappeared and reappeared in Gildroys hands.
“Beautiful skill”, Gildroy said with a shit-eating grin. “And just my color.”
And with that he started to whail on Noele. She tried to dodge his clumsy swings, but at some point one hit. Her armor of flames buckled under the blows, but still held strong.
“What can I still do?”, Noele screamed in panic. “I don’t have my skill anymore. I can’t do this?”
Amelia snorted. “You lost one skill. You still have the rest. Change them. Combine them. Make them better. Make them yours.”
“Make them mine”; Noele whipered. She close her eyes. “Make them better like with my elegant noble slash.”
When she opened her eyes again, Gildroy saw that ther gaze no longer contained fear, only cold determination.
Gildroy noted how her stance and entire aura shifted.
And Noele unleashed her newest skill
[Unending Dauntless Grand Blaze]”, Noele screamed.
She launched a great fireball and then dozens more.
The first fireball Gildroy batted away with his sword of golden light.
The second fireball he doged.
The third fireball hit Gildroy but was blocked by his armor.
The seventh fireball broke his [Armor of Gold]
And Gildroy screamed like a feral animal.
And the barrage continued for minutes.
Gildroy was of course unhurt by the spell. Burning a dragon? About as sound a strategy as drowning a fish or killing a bird by tossing it down a mountain.
No, what hurt him was the collateral damage! Noele had hit not only him but also multiple buildings with her fireballs, absolutely demolishing them. Buildings he owned! Luckily her teacher had stepped in and carried the people still inside them to safety. But still…. so much money lost.
In his fury he roared. Using the smoke as cover he dashed toward Noele, who was obviously exhausted. She failed to even use her fancy teleportation spell, as Gildroy grabbed her by the neck. He then slammed her headfirst into the pavement. Once, twice. Then he tossed her away, through one of still standing walls.
Gildroy glanced on the burned ruin in front of him. He took a deep breath. This wasn’t as bad as it looked, he knew that. The tenants had been tardy on their morgage-payments anyhow.
He’d just demand the full repayment of the damages from the tenants and then he would also cash in the insurance. Then he would use that money to rebuild. He would gentrify the entire block and then he’d demand double, no triple the original price.
He saw how Noele fought to stand back up. She even picked a potion out from her pocket and downed it. Foolish. The fight was over, and even a little bit of replenished magic wouldn’t change anything.
“Girl, stop it. You did well, very well, but you lost.”
Instead of listening to Gildroy’s words, the girl went for one last, all out attack. Silly. Gildroy pulled out another platinum coin from his pouch, at least tried to.
Gildroy glanced downward. While he hadn’t been wounded by the barrage of fireballs, it had ripped the pouch of coins from his belt. And without platinum coins there was no time slow. No protection.
He felt a deep, stinging pain. He tasted iron on his gums.
The blade was lodged deeply into his chest, piercing his heart and his lungs.
“Oh.”, Gildroy weezed.
“Well done”, he said with his last bit of air.
Noele ripped the sword out of his body and Gildroy fell over.
And in these last few moments of his life Gildroy heard something.
The call of an ancient god of death. Of decay. Of oblivion.
He heard the call of the void.
Gildroy opened his eyes and saw a broken world. Enormous rocks flew about, one such he was standing on. Stars glittered in the far darkness of this terrible place.
A towering mass of dark purple flesh with hundred of tentacles sprawled over several such floating isles. The enormous body was mostly covered in shadows, yet the few glances were enough to cause Gildroy a massive headache and burnt themselves into his memories and left a marks that would last for the rest of his existance.
He tried not to look at the massive creature, but that was difficult as it so big, that it was both to the front, the left and the right of Gildroy.
“Your mortal flesh is failing you.”, the eldritch beast rumbled from a thousand mouths. “Swear yourself to my cause and you will be saved! You will be granted unlimited power, an...”
“No thanks”
Hundreds of eyes blinked in surprise.
“You are aware, that you are dying?”
Gildroy took a look a look of his blood- and sootstained suit. The shirt had been his last and had been made from the silk of a king tarantula. Very pricey and very difficult to clean. Probably ruined for good. Oh well, sometimes you incur unforseen losses.
“I want you to know two very basic things about me, my dear: First of all, my soul is not for sale. At least not for a vague promise of unlimited power. No, if I were to put a price on my soul, it would be hard cash only.”
“Secondly” Gildroy’s lips drew back into a manic smile. “I always plan ahead. Far ahead.”
His grin bloomed into a full on mad laugh.
“My death was always part of the plan.”
Noele stood victorous. She had beaten an S-ranked threat, alone and almost witthout any help from her master. Did that mean she was an S-rank adventurer now?
Then [Dance with Death] stopped it’s effect, recognizing that her fight was over. Tiredness slammed into her body like the mallet of a yeti. She fell to her knees, then flat to the ground.
She used the lat bit of her strength and raised her head and looked at Amelia. Goodness, she was tired. She expected a proud nod, or even a few kind words from her master. Yet Amelia’s gaze was hard, and her body tense, as she looked at the cooling corpse of Gildroy. Slowly her mentor drew her sword.
Then Noele heard a sound. The sound of metal against cobblestone. Then another plink.
Then another.
And another.
And another.
Noele saw how a gold coin fell down from somewhere up in the sky. And then a silver coin, and some platinum after that. Then Noele saw a message from the world system.
[Gildroy Goldentooth used the skill: Life Insurance]
The rain of coins picked up, gold coins falling in an endless cascade from the skies. A small hill was already forming around the body.
Ameila took a single step, crossing the entire distance to her pupil and lifted her up. Another leap took them to the roof of one of the undamaged buildings, where she laid down Noele.
Meanwhile the entrance to the city hall was entombed by an avalance of silver, the fires in the burning ruins were buried in gold, drowning the fires.
On top of this mountain of treasures now stood a figure wreathed in golden scales and golden wings, his eyes burning with the blue flame of undeath.
“You fools!”, Gildroy roard. “Do you think I didn’t buy shares in that liches phylactery?”
Noele eyes burned and not only from the smoke lingering in the area. So she had failed… not only herself but also her sister.
“Master, shouldn’t you stop him? Please, I am too weak.” Noele hated how feeble and pathetic her voice sounded.
“Not yet. The rain hasn’t stopped yet, and that lizard did a lot of damage,”, Amelia said while crouching down next to her. “You did well, though this opponent is frankly above you.”
With that she one again leaped and landed in front of the ecstatic drakling.
“Ha! You cannot face me! Nobody can! I am the richest dragon to ever walk Vacuos!”, Gildroy bellowed. “[Buyout]”, he barked. “System: Kill Amelia.
Nothing happened. Gildroy looked at the System Message in front of him and his eyes bulged.
“How much does that cost me? That many zeros?”
“Alright.”, Gildroy exclaimed. “System: Stun Amelia:
Once again nothing happened, aside from a new message appearing.
“Still that much. Oh dear.” Gildroy suddenly sobered up.
“You are quite strong, aren’t you?”, he feebly asked.
“Yeah. Kinda.” Amelia glanced up. The golden rain slowly let up. There must be tens of millions of coins laying about.
“Well. I seem to have micalculated. Is it too late to apologize? Forgive and forget?”
One last platinum coin fell from the sky and skidded over a mountain of gold.
“Too late.”, Amelia said, and her blade descended.
There we are. 10 minutes before the deadline. Not even close.
Now time for a nap. Running on caffeine and 2 hourse of sleep. Who could have known that writing takes time and effort.
Oh, also a little prologe. Noele fell down the roog, knocked her head really bad. Forgot her new skill combo. Such a klutz.

Semiconductor Stocks are on the move.....Industry group chart as of 3/17 at bottom of post
Semiconductor Stocks are on the move.....actually they have been on the move for some time and are now at the top....but for how long? The Fabless industry group has quickly ascended to the #2 of 197 industry groups as seen on the industry ranking chart at bottom of this post. I posted this for one of our members on his Discord channel because he had expressed interest in shorting certain stocks in the group a month or two ago....I suggested he reconsider for the group was making a strong move up. Now that they are at the top....shorting would be a lot less risky. But I prefer (and have to use in retirement accounts) to use Bear ETFs for betting against stocks or groups of stocks and SOXS fits that bill for me. I am not buying yet but may start adding small lots ($18+ / share with a 52-week high of $89.50) while we watch and see how well NVidia & AMD and others continue performing. And don't get me wrong....there are some semiconductor stocks that I will remain long in and continue reducing cost basis on - Mobileye is one of those. Here is a thorough assessment on these stocks for your review:
Semiconductor Stocks Climb Yet Inventories Bedevil Chip Industry; A Reality Check May Be Coming
FacebookTwitterLinkedInShare Licensing
PATRICK SEITZ03:32 PM ET 03/15/2023
Semiconductor stocks were a godsend to investors in February as the overall market backed off from January's advance. After a strong first month of the year, chipmakers scored more gains. That was especially true for the fabless semiconductor industry, which rose another 6.3% on strength in stocks like Nvidia (NVDA), Monolithic Power Systems (MPWR) and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD).

Yet during that same period, as chipmakers reported December-quarter earnings, a raft of data on shipments, prices and inventories showed the semiconductor industry still in a downturn.

Cyclical investors, those practiced at speculating on semiconductor stocks' reversal from their deep, periodic downturns, were betting on a bottom.

Old Industry Cycle, New Twist
But this cycle from the start has been unlike others in a long history of semiconductor industry booms and busts. The cycle made its way through the pandemic years of distorted demand trends and knotted supply chains. Then, as cyclical investors moved into many top stocks, leading them to flash early signs of an upturn, another factor also came into play. Another sort of optimism, fueled by views that increasingly diverse end markets signaled a more durable, stable chip industry, also helped bolster the upturn.

Among fabless chip stocks, Nvidia surged more than 58% for the year through February. Monolithic Power rallied 37%. Among chip manufacturers, ON Semiconductor (ON), more commonly known as Onsemi, and STMicroelectronics (STM) surged 24% and 50%, respectively.

Some semiconductor stocks continue to climb. Still, an array of fundamental chip industry metrics point to difficulties ahead. In particular, many semiconductor companies report stubbornly high inventories in their sales channels and with customers. A large segment of analysts accustomed to assessing chip cycles say investors who put the bottom in semiconductor stocks at the end of 2022 might be prematurely optimistic.

"If you listen to all the (earnings) calls, no one has said that this is the bottom or that it's definitely going to get better soon," Robert Maire, an analyst with consulting firm Semiconductor Advisors, told IBD.

*Through 3/15/23
Pandemic Disrupted Semiconductor Industry Cycle
One thing is certainly true: The semiconductor industry's end markets are more diverse now than during past chip cycles. The determining factor in prior booms and busts was personal computer and smartphone sales. Now computer chips have made their way into many more devices. This lessens the industry's dependence on any one major product type.

The present chip cycle shows memory chips, PC processors and chips for smartphones and consumer electronics clearly in a downturn. At the same time, chip sales in automotive and industrial markets have remained strong.

But overall, the wild swings in demand for tech products during the Covid-19 pandemic have led to a steeper-than-usual down cycle, Semiconductor Advisors' Maire says.

"The industry got whipsawed by Covid and the supply chain issues," Maire said. "We went from a shortage to an excess in a pretty short span of time."

Semiconductor Stocks: Industry Recovery In Late 2023?
A clear risk factor for rising chip stocks is that the semiconductor industry still must reconcile its bloated inventories, Jefferies analyst Christopher Wood said in a recent note to clients. He warned of a "coming chip glut."

"The market action is assuming, heroically, a bottoming out of the semiconductor inventory correction in the first half of this year and a presumed recovery in demand in the second half, of which there is for now no evidence," Wood said.

Wall Street analysts generally expect sales in the broader chip market to turn positive in the second half of 2023. Many see PC chip sales as among the first segments that will turn around. That should help chipmakers AMD and its archrival Intel (INTC).

It is also possible, however, that the "orgy" of pandemic buying of PCs in 2020 and 2021 could also depress demand for three to four years, Wood says. Smartphone sales face a similar possibility, he says.

"Meanwhile, chips used in the auto sector are now seeing a big surge in inventory," Wood said. "The previous shortage of automotive chips has led to substantial double ordering."

Analysts see AMD sales and earnings falling through the first two quarters, then turning higher, according to FactSet. Intel is expected to shift from loss to profit in Q3 and post an earnings gain as sales edge higher in Q4.

World Semiconductor Trade Statistics forecasts a 4.1% decline in semiconductor sales in all of 2023. Sales rose 4.4% in 2022 and surged 26.2% in 2021.

Artificial Intelligence Spurs Semiconductor Industry Investments
Among the markets for more advanced chips, the data center market, tied to web services and cloud computing providers, is showing some signs of weakness. One clear exception is the portion of that market tied to artificial intelligence, especially graphics processors.

Excitement around generative AI applications, such as ChatGPT, has provided a lift for certain semiconductor stocks seen as beneficiaries of the trend.

Nvidia leads that group with its graphics processing units, accelerators, high-performance computing hardware and software. Other chip stocks likely to benefit include Broadcom (AVGO) for its application-specific integrated circuits and Marvell Technology (MRVL) for its high-speed networking and ASIC chips.

As a result, Broadcom earnings and sales have powered ahead, paying little mind to the pandemic's potholes. For Marvell, analysts see sales and earnings declines for the first three quarters this year, turning to narrow gains in the fourth quarter.

"There is a clear shift in spending priorities (by cloud service providers) to AI and technical infrastructure," Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis said in a recent note to clients. "We view Nvidia as the biggest beneficiary of the shift in spend to AI, and Broadcom and Marvell as beneficiaries in networking upgrades and semi-custom chips."

Downturn In Memory Chips
Like the prior chip cycle downturn, which lasted from late 2018 until early 2020, memory-chip makers have led the current correction. Micron Technology (MU) and other memory-chip makers started warning about weakness in the market in mid-2022.

The big wrinkle with this cycle in semiconductor stocks is the disruption caused by the Covid pandemic. As the pandemic got underway in early 2020, work-from-home and remote education trends fueled a buying binge in PCs and tablets. Consumers also splurged on consumer electronics and home appliances as they sheltered in place.

Then pandemic fears faded and the economy reopened. Consumers shifted their spending away from electronics. Analysts now project Micron will book losses in all four quarters of this fiscal year, dropping for the year to an estimated $2.20 loss per share, vs. an $8.35 profit for 2022.

Sales are forecast to turn up in the quarter ending in September, with the company shifting from loss to profit in the December-ending quarter.

Automakers Still Dealing With Chip Shortages
Automakers faced a severe shortage of chips during the pandemic. It was the result of a two-step process: first, they canceled orders ahead of a projected falloff in demand for new cars and trucks. But demand held steady. When carmakers went to place new orders, they found themselves at the back of the line at chip foundries. Only recently have the auto chip shortages started to ease.

In general, automakers use older chip technology. The semiconductor industry's production capacity for those chips is more limited than for higher-margin, leading-edge chips, such as those made by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM).

Semiconductor companies serving the auto market include Onsemi and STMicroelectronics, as well as NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) and Texas Instruments (TXN).

But across all of those segments of the chip landscape, unpredictable consumer behavior and knotted supply chains altered the traditional chip-cycle metrics.

"Covid threw a wrench into the cycle," Bill Jewell, a consultant with Semiconductor Intelligence, told IBD.

Factories shut down at the start of the pandemic and then reopened to chase a rapid acceleration in demand for PCs and other devices. Then consumers, after they had what they needed, stopped buying, Jewell says.

"PCs and smartphones account for so much of semiconductor consumption, especially memory, that when those slow down, it has a big impact on the market," Jewell said. "Automotive and industrial markets are holding up but they are not as big as the personal computer and smartphone markets."

For this year, analysts see STMicroelectronics earnings rising in Q1 and Q2 before undercutting year-ago levels. Sales and earnings forecasts for Onsemi, NXP and Texas Instruments are lower throughout the year.

Semiconductor Stocks Vs. 'Trough-Calling Euphoria'
Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Seymore sees the semiconductor industry situation as a hangover from pandemic disruptions.

"After about two years of semiconductor shortages resulting in a revenue/margin 'party' for the sector, the sector's fundamentals have pivoted to the 'hangover' stage," Seymore said in a recent note to clients. The hangover is illustrated by chipmakers lowering their revenue and earnings estimates for the past two quarters in the face of record-high inventories, he said.

Chip Stocks To Watch And Semiconductor Industry News

Investors observing the recent weak earnings reports now anticipate a trough in the first half of 2023 and a fundamental recovery in the second half of the year, Seymore said. That optimism reflects in this year's rise of the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index, or SOX.

Year to date, the SOX is up 15.5% vs. a 1.6% rise for the S&P 500. The SOX includes the 30 largest chip stocks traded in the U.S.

"While we've seen this cyclical investing 'playbook' used successfully many times in the past, we also note that the timing and slope of the eventual recovery quickly becomes paramount once the trough-calling euphoria subsides," Seymore said.

He added, "We remain somewhat concerned that the magnitude of inventory builds coupled with still mediocre demand may limit the slope of the revenue, margin and EPS (earnings per share) recovery — even if first-half 2023 is indeed the bottom."

Chip Inventories Hit Record Highs
Aggregate inventory data across 26 of the largest semiconductor companies shows that inventories in the fourth quarter reached their highest levels since Deutsche Bank began collecting such data in 1994, Seymore said.

"The industry has finally entered the hangover stage, with the primary concerns going forward focused on the duration/magnitude of the headache, and equally importantly the timing/slope of the eventual recovery," Seymore said.

With such a cautious outlook, Seymore is focused on semiconductor stocks with reasonable valuations and company-specific catalysts. His favorite names include Broadcom, Marvell, MaxLinear (MXL), NXP Semi, Onsemi and Qualcomm (QCOM).

Auto Chip Stocks Remain Strong Segment
Meanwhile, demand for automotive chips should continue to hold up in 2023, buoying companies like Allegro MicroSystems (ALGM) and NXP, Wells Fargo analyst Gary Mobley said in a recent note to clients.

Production constraints caused by chip shortages hindered automobile sales for more than two years. And there remains a pent-up demand for new vehicles, Mobley said.

Plus, automotive-chip makers are benefiting from increased semiconductor content in each vehicle. That is thanks to the trends of electrification and autonomy, he said.

"As long as light vehicle unit production continues to improve toward normalized levels, higher (chip) inventories are needed," Mobley said.

FactSet consensus estimates show earnings gains for Allegro over the next thee quarters before slowing. Sales gains are forecast for the next five quarters.

'Soft Landing' For Semiconductor Stocks?
Most analysts are predicting a rolling recovery with some segments turning positive earlier than others.

Evercore ISI analyst C.J. Muse has forecast a "soft landing" for chip stocks and the semiconductor industry rather than a harsh downturn. Also, the reopening of the China economy should help with the recovery, he said in a note to clients.

Daniel Morgan, senior portfolio manager at Synovus Trust, underscored that the health of the semiconductor industry is a key barometer for the overall tech sector.

"The semiconductor sector is the plankton of the technology and manufacturing ocean," Morgan said in a recent note to clients. "Everything requires chips in it to run. Typically, the chip sector will lead the technology sector out of the valley and will be one of the first sectors to show green sprouts foreshadowing a pending recovery."

But Morgan added, "At this point there are few signs of a rebound."

And the upshot for investors in semiconductor stocks? The downtrend in the chip cycle started in the third quarter of 2022. It could persist for six quarters, similar to the 2018-2019 downturn, Morgan said.

Forehead Wrinkles- Here are the Tips to Prevent it
Forehead wrinkles become an unavoidable part of life as you grow older. Many individuals are concerned about the forehead, which is especially prone to acquiring wrinkles due to recurrent facial expressions and exposure to environmental stresses.
While there is no way to prevent the aging process altogether, you can take measures to prevent and reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles. You can keep your forehead appearing smooth and young for longer by applying some easy lifestyle adjustments and skincare routines away from forehead lines.
Whether in your 20s or 50s, it’s never too early to start caring for your skin and preventing wrinkles. So, let’s dive in and learn how to keep those forehead wrinkles at bay!

Top 7 Tips to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles

If you look in the mirror daily and stress over seeing wrinkles on your forehead, don’t be concerned; you’re not alone. Forehead wrinkles are a frequent indication of aging that can make us appear older than you are.

Hi All,
Some advice please. Can any of you recommend prebuilt server options that have 8 or more 3.5 inch bays.
Essentially I am looking for something for a simple use case - to run unraid, with a zfs pool where, over time I can grow the pool by removing/replacing larger disks as prices decrease.
Looking to use this as an arqbackup backup target. Something small and quiet like a tower would be a good option if possible.

2023.03.21 10:37 EagleEyeStx Bull Thesis for $GRIL

Bull Thesis for $GRIL
Muscle Maker Inc. (NASDAQ: GRIL) is a smallcap that has been making big moves in recent months. In a nutshell, its transitioned from being a relatively-sleepy restaurant franchise operator to a new player in the global agricultural commodities market, and the company has been making money hand over fist since the pivot was announced in mid-Q4. Share price has responded accordingly, with >4X gains from its all-time bottom of $0.30 in November to its current $1.29 (close yesterday). Here are the three leading reasons why I think this ticker has plenty more room to run despite the serious ground its covered in the past few months:
1) The Chart: GRIL is currently +43% YTD and +230% over the past 6 months. And technical indicators are NOT suggesting that this is the result of a pump, but rather the growth looks sustainable, and with more on the way. GRIL’s price action is currently trading above its 100/200 SMA, and just yesterday it seems to have intercepted the 50 SMA; in other words, on the basis of moving averages GRIL is looking decidedly bullish.
This is supported by a positive reversal in MACD on 3/16, which continued into trading yesterday and suggests that we’re in for some more gains over the next few days. Lastly, RSI is sitting at a cozy 55, meaning that this stock is very fairly valued (in the context of a pump, RSI would likely be >70).
Note a) SMA intersects, b) RSI=54.67, c) MACD histogram is green, with signal lines coming up hot on a bullish x-axis intercept
Technical Indicator give a summary BUY rating, and MA gives a STRONG BUY rating
2) The pivot towards agricultural commodities markets. In November GRIL announced the formation of a new subsidiary, Sadot LLC, which ostensibly is part of a vertical integration strategy intended to reduce COGS for its restaurant franchises. At this stage, it looks like Sadot “currently focuses on international agricultural commodity shipping and trading for items such as soybean meal, wheat, and corn.” Regardless of how Sadot fits into the bigger picture for GRIL, its turning out to be a cash cow for the company.
Sadot generated >$200M in revenue over its first three months, and last month it hit a milestone of $3.3M in net income (according to a February 6th announcement; for the full details, check the 8-K from November 18th). This milestone triggered the appointment of two new board members (effective 3/1) by AGGIA, a global consultancy firm specializing in food/agri-logistics chains that has been managing Sadot’s day-to-day operations.
Furthermore, it looks like AGGIA retains the right to appoint additional board members pending they continue to hit net income milestones of $6.6M and $9.9M. This board appointment agreement seems a lot like a friendly take-over to me, hinting that GRIL intends on placing forward emphasis on Sadot and its penetration of the agri-supply chain market. Regardless of what the long-term game plan is, the formation of Sadot in Q4 and the subsequent windfall it has provided for GRIL signals an ambitious new direction for the company that thus far is proving highly profitable.
GRIL Investor Deck, pp 8
3) Ongoing expansion of its restaurant franchise business segment. GRIL isn’t putting all of its eggs in the same basket in terms of Sadot, AGGIA, and its pivot to the global agricultural commodities market. Their core business segment is centered on two fast-casual restaurant chains that have a current total of 44 locations, with 3 under construction and 49 franchise agreements sold. They also have a Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) food pickup and delivery subsidiary that currently operates 34 pickup locations across the US.
According to its most recent financials (TTM as of end-Q3 ‘22), GRIL’s restaurant/food delivery business segment generated $11M in revenue and $1.2M in gross profits. I’m very interested to see what the year-end figures look like, but I get the impression that at this stage GRIL has significant infrastructure in place and is now shifting into aggressive nationwide expansion. Given lower COGS and additional cash flow (thanks to Sadot) GRIL is just now starting to feel the effects of, I’m optimistic it will continue rolling out nationwide expansion for the restaurant chains/DTC locations over the course of 2023.
GRIL Investor Deck, pp 5
In sum, GRIL strikes me as a smallcap that is in the midst of a fundamental transformation that presents massive potential upside for early birds. It has embraced an aggressive vertical integration strategy (via Sadot) that is not only generating a significant revenue windfall, but will feed into GRIL’s pre-existing business segments to increase profit margins across the board. A glance at its price action movement over the past 6 months really illustrates the positive reception this move has had by investors, with GRIL posting robust triple-digit gains since November and technical momentum indicators suggesting that there’s more to come.
We should be seeing annual financials in the coming days or weeks, which will clarify exactly what’s been going on under the hood here since November. Regardless, after an impressive Q1 GRIL is looking poised for aggressive growth over the course of coming months. And no, I’m barely qualified to open a Reddit account let alone give financial advice–this analysis is my opinion only, DYOR before trading.

Most recently the company’s share price was $0.88, and it changed around $0.03 or 3.69% from the last close, which brings the market valuation of the company to $257.57M. BITF currently trades at a discount to its 52-week high of $4.38, offering almost -397.73% off that amount. The share price’s 52-week low was $0.38, which indicates that the current value has risen by an impressive 56.82% since then. I note from Bitfarms Ltd.’s average daily trading volume that its 10-day average is 3.73 million shares, with the 3-month average coming to 4.43 million.

2023.03.21 10:32 klopper_t EPQFI - Increase Transaction Fee

Author: Klopper
Type: Q Fees & Incentives Expert proposal
Date Created: 2023-03-21
Link to Proposal: [TBD]
Simple Summary
The Q transaction fee is very low on mainnet. This is caused by a deprecated parameter value. The parameter should be increased to the proper value.
The Q transaction fee parameter should define the cost per native token transfer in QUSD. In the early days we did not have the parameter governed.EPQFI.normalizedTransactionSize , and the governed.EPQFI.txFee parameter was taken directly as gas price in Q. This has been changed on testnet, but not on mainnet. The paramter value should be increased to the same value as on Fisher testnet, which is 0.1 cent or 0.001 QUSD per native transfer. The q-client will divide this paramter by the normalized transaction size (21000 gas) which will yield the desired gas price of ~47 gwei in QUSD. As long as we don't have a proper exchange rate in the price oracle this translates 1:1 to the same amount per gas in Q.
Parameter name: governed.EPQFI.txFee

Proposed value:\t1000000000000000 (0.001 QUSD)

2023.03.21 10:27 ant1405 Mascarpone not thickening

So first, I apologize for the lack of pictures (it has been some time since my last go at it, and I lost the photos I had taken). But basically, I've been trying to make both "traditional/strained" mascarpone for Tiramisu and "not strained/creamy" mascarpone to use it as a general purpose spread.
I've followed countless recipes: ones where people don't use thermometers, ones where people use fancy accurate thermometers to nail the 82-85°C window, ones where the mixture rests in the pan, ones where people first make the "creamy" base first, by letting the cooked and acidified cream rest in the fridge, and then strain it to get proper traditional mascaporne.
And from the comments and results in videos, blogposts etc. everyone seems to be enjoying a decent to very high success rate but in my case the mixture simply isn't thickening on the fridge, it stays with a texture that could be described as a "slightly thicker" heavy cream after cooking but it doesn't thicken at all after that, so no success in achieving the "not strained" version.
But I haven't found success in straining either, the cream (not just the whey, the actual acidified mixture itself) either gets absorbed partly into the kitchen towel, or just passes right through cheesecloth. And again, with no textural change aside from the slight rhickening from the cooking and adding acid steps.
So yeah, after trying so many recipes and spending quite a lot of money in heavy cream (40% butterfat, I believe it was pasteurized? But definitely not at UHT. I tried with a 35% brand too but afaik the 40% one should even better, and in the end neither achieved any results anyway) which is quite expensive where I live (Brazil, it's expensive here, but still less than half the price of actual mascarpone.) I am at a loss of ideas here.
The only variable that I see could still be a soucre of difficulty is temperature: I have a gas stove and it's such a pain to control heat with it (low is like medium-low on an electric range, high is simultaneously not as high as high in eletric yet scorching is even easier to happen on gas etc.) and my thermometer is a cheap one, not low accuracy but with a very slow reading rate. I tried to remedy my temperature problem by using a double boiler, which helped (I think?) to control temperature and avoid scorching but it made so it took way longer to reach my target temperature and just like everything else I tried, to zero noticible results.
I should also note that tried letting the mixture rest in the fridge up to 36h (while straining) once (from what I gathered, it takes some time to thicken, thus many people reach the conclusion that they failed prematurely) and no result, only slightly thicker and more acidic cream.
The closest I got to actual mascarpone, was weirdly, by trying to whip it like whipping cream out of desperation lol. At first, no change, it didn't become whipped cream, nor mascarpone, nor butter, despite whipping it with an electric handmixer for 5 minutes. But after letting it rest on the fridge for an hour or so, I had something surprisinly very mascarpone-like! But then, I tried to repeat said procedure with another batch and that time I managed to make lemon juice flavored butter...
So, any ideas? Personally, given that some people seem to be able to make it without any thermometer at all, I'd like to know if temperature is indeed that important. Like, what is undercooked mascarpome supposed to look like? Is it curdled? Is it unable to thicken like the ones I made? And what does overcooking the cream do for it?
As for recipe details, I played around with proportions a bit while also trying different ones as I noted in the first paragraph but most recipes I tried/saw were somewhat like this:
-1 1/2 tablespoons or 15-20ml of lemon juice -1 pint or 400-500ml of heavy cream (which apparently weighs 450g)
"Cook the cream to 82°C. Add the lemon juice (or acid) and keep stirring until the mixture reaches 85°C and thickens slightly. Let it rest in the pan for 30min. Transfer it to either a cointainer or strainer lined with cheesecloth and put it in the fridge overnight."
I'd prefer sticking to lemon juice, I have no ambition to dive deeper into cheesemaking for now, so buying critic or tartaric acid would not be convenient for me atm.

2023.03.21 10:22 LightningTF2 Are you a bear or bull?

So with all this volatility what's your stance? Are you bullish or are you cautiously optimistic? I feel like we can enjoy these green days but not forget what we just came out of in a short period of time. I don't know if months of crabbing left people bored for something of this nature but the volatility might be drawing in the wrong type of investors.
I don't know what the market is thinking as it usually moves on its own accord but I do know that the economy is not doing much better than it was last month. Nor is the war in Ukraine becoming any less apparent. I would be careful of your next moves as if you get carried away you might make a big mistake. Dca is your friend in times like these, then you won't go wrong. Maybe even peel back your dca a little to see how prices move but always know you have a plan that is important to stick to.
Don't let the media influence your decisions too heavily and be realistic to what you need in your life at this time. Even if it is fiat, don't feel like you are betraying the community or something. Do what ever you need to, crypto isn't going anywhere and you always will have another chance to buy at good prices, we are early.
I've had a ton of people tell me this too when I was unsure of what to do so maybe someone can reflect and make the right choice. What that answer is I have no idea, but make sure you stick to your plan and don't go off on a whim, unless you're looking for that.

2023.03.21 10:11 amywood123 What is a rechargeable car, electric car type introduction

What is a rechargeable car, electric car type introduction
Today, we will introduce you to what rechargeable car and electric car types are.
In this era of rapid technological development, everything is slowly going into technology. Even the cars that are closely related to our lives have also come into the era of advanced technology, and you can find the functions and some artificial intelligence and other elements on the cars now, and even now there are electric cars.

What Are Battery-Charged Cars?

The Main Types Of Electric Cars

Types of electric vehicles.
  • Pure electric vehicles (BEV)
  • Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV)
  • Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCEV)

Pure Electric Vehicles

A pure electric vehicle is a vehicle that is powered by an electric motor.
The main difference (dissimilarity) between a pure electric vehicle, relative to a fuel car, lies in four major components,
  • the drive motor
  • the speed controller
  • the power battery
  • the onboard charger
It consists of public ultra-fast charging stations as opposed to gas stations. The quality difference of pure electric vehicles depends on these four major components, and its value also depends on the quality of these four major components. The use of pure electric vehicles is also directly related to the selection and configuration of the four components.
The speed and start-up speed of pure electric vehicles depend on the power and performance of the drive motor, the range of the vehicle depend on the capacity of the on-board power battery, and the weight of the on-board power battery depends on what kind of power battery is used, such as lead-acid, zinc-carbon and lithium batteries. Their volume, specific gravity, specific power, specific energy, and cycle life are different. This depends on the manufacturer’s positioning and use of the vehicle class as well as market definition and market segmentation.
Pure electric vehicle drive motor has DC brush, brushless, permanent magnet, electromagnetic, and then AC stepping motor, etc., their selection is also related to the vehicle configuration, use, and grade. In addition, the speed control of the drive motor is also divided into stepped speed control and step-less speed control, with an electronic speed controller and without a speed controller. The motor has a hub motor, inner rotor motor, single motor drive, multi-motor drive, combined motor drive, etc.


The technology is relatively simple and mature, as long as there is a power supply that can be charged.


The energy stored per unit weight of the battery is too small, but also because the battery of the electric car is more expensive, and has not formed an economic scale, so the purchase price is more expensive, as for the use cost, some use price is more expensive than the car, some price is only 1/3 of the car, which mainly depends on the life of the battery and the local price of oil and electricity.

Hybrid Charging Car

Refers to a car that can be powered by at least two types of onboard stored energy from the following.
  • Consumable fuel
  • rechargeable energy/energy storage devices.
They can be classified into three categories based on the form of powertrain structure as follows.

Series Hybrid Electric Vehicle (SHEV):

A hybrid (electric) vehicle in which the driving force of the vehicle comes from the electric motor only. The structure is characterized by the engine driving the generator to generate electricity, and the electric energy is delivered to the electric motor through the motor controller, which drives the vehicle. In addition, the power battery can also provide electric energy to the electric motor alone to drive the car.

Parallel Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV):

A hybrid electric vehicle in which the driving force of the vehicle is supplied by the electric motor and the engine simultaneously or separately. The structure features a parallel drive system that can use the engine or electric motor as the power source alone, or use both the electric motor and engine as the power source to drive the vehicle.

Hybrid Hybrid Electric Vehicle (CHEV):

Hybrid (electric) vehicles with both series and parallel drive modes. The structure is characterized by the fact that it can work in series hybrid mode and also in parallel hybrid mode, taking into account the characteristics of both series and parallel types.
(Note: With the development of hybrid electric vehicle technology, the types are not limited to the above, but can also be divided according to other types.)
Those that usually use conventional fuel, along with electric motors, engines to improve low-speed power output and fuel consumption. In the domestic market, the mainstream of hybrid vehicles are gasoline hybrid, while the international market diesel hybrid models are also developing rapidly.


1, the use of hybrid power can be determined by the average power required to determine the maximum power of the internal combustion engine, which is in the optimal working conditions of low fuel consumption and low pollution. Need a high-powered internal combustion engine power shortage, the battery to supplement; less load, the surplus power can be generated to recharge the battery, because the internal combustion engine can continue to work, the battery can be constantly charged, so its journey and ordinary cars.
2、Because of the battery, it is very convenient to recover the energy when braking, when going downhill and when idling.
3、In busy urban areas, the internal combustion engine can be turned off and driven by the battery alone to achieve “zero” emissions.
4、With the internal combustion engine, it is very convenient to solve the problems encountered by pure electric vehicles, such as air conditioning, heating, and defrosting, which consume a lot of energy.
5、The existing gas station can be used for refueling without further investment.
6、It can keep the battery in good working condition, without over-charging and over-discharging, prolonging its service life and reducing costs.


Long-distance high-speed driving basically can not save fuel.

Fuel Cell

The fuel cell is used as the power source of the car. The chemical reaction process of fuel cells does not produce harmful products, so fuel cell vehicles are pollution-free vehicles. The energy conversion efficiency of fuel cells is 2~3 times higher than that of internal combustion engines, so fuel cell vehicles are an ideal vehicle in terms of energy utilization and environmental protection.
Individual fuel cells must be combined into fuel cell groups in order to obtain the necessary power to meet the requirements of vehicle use.
Fuel cell technology has made significant progress in recent years. The world’s leading automobile manufacturers, such as DaimlerChrysler, Ford, Toyota and General Motors, have announced plans to bring fuel cell vehicles to market by 2004. At the present time, prototype fuel cell cars are being tested and fuel cell-powered transportation buses are undergoing demonstration projects in several North American cities. Technical challenges remain in the development of fuel cell vehicles, such as integration of fuel cell packs, improving fuel processors for commercial electric vehicles and auxiliary department car manufacturers are working toward integrating components and reducing component costs, and have made significant progress.
Compared with conventional vehicles, fuel cell vehicles have the following advantages.
  1. Zero or near-zero emissions.
  2. Reduced water pollution from oil leaks.
  3. reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
  4. Improved fuel economy.
  5. Improved engine combustion efficiency.
  6. Smooth and noiseless operation.

What Is A Rechargeable Car: System Structure

Electric Drive

An electric vehicle is a vehicle powered by on-board power and driven by an electric motor with wheels that meets all requirements of road traffic and safety regulations. It uses electricity stored in the battery to start. Sometimes 12 or 24 batteries are used in driving the vehicle, and sometimes more are required.
The components of an electric vehicle [3] include an electric drive and control system, a mechanical system such as a drive force transmission, and a working device to accomplish a given task. The electric drive and control system is the core of an electric vehicle, and is the biggest difference from an internal combustion engine vehicle. The electric drive and control system consists of the drive motor, the power supply and the speed control device of the motor. The other devices of electric vehicles are basically the same as those of internal combustion engine vehicles.

Power Supply

The power supply provides electrical energy for the drive motor of the electric vehicle, and the motor converts the electrical energy from the power supply into mechanical energy. The most widely used power source is the lead-acid battery, but with the development of electric vehicle technology, the lead-acid battery is gradually replaced by other batteries due to its low energy, slow charging speed and short life. The main power sources under development are sodium-sulfur batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries, lithium batteries, fuel cells, etc. The application of these new power sources opens up a broad prospect for the development of electric vehicles.

Drive Motor

The role of the drive motor is to convert the electrical energy from the power supply into mechanical energy to drive the wheels and working devices through the transmission device or directly. However, DC motor has small power, low efficiency and large maintenance workload due to the existence of commutation spark; with the development of motor control technology, it is bound to be gradually replaced by DC brushless motor (BLDCM), switched reluctance motor (SRM) and AC asynchronous motor, such as casingless disk axial field DC series excitation motor.

Speed Control

The motor speed control device is set up for the variable speed and direction change of electric vehicles, etc. Its function is to control the voltage or current of the motor and complete the control of the driving torque and rotation direction of the motor.
In the early electric vehicles, the speed control of DC motor was realized by connecting a series resistor or changing the number of turns of the magnetic field coil of the motor. Because the speed regulation is graded, and will produce additional energy consumption or use the motor structure is complicated, now rarely used. The more widely used is thyristor chopper speed control, which controls the motor current by evenly changing the terminal voltage of the motor to realize the stepless speed control of the motor. In the continuous development of electronic power technology, it is also gradually replaced by other power transistor (such as GTO, MOSFET, BTR and IGBT, etc.) chopper speed control device. From the development of technology, along with the application of new drive motors, the speed control of electric vehicles is transformed into the application of DC inverter technology, which will become an inevitable trend.
In the spin-change control of drive motor, DC motor relies on contactor to change the current direction of armature or magnetic field to realize the spin-change of motor, which makes the circuit complicated and less reliable. When an AC asynchronous motor is used, the change of motor rotation only requires changing the phase sequence of the three-phase current of the magnetic field, which simplifies the control circuit. In addition, the use of AC motor and its variable frequency speed control technology makes it easier to control the braking energy recovery of electric vehicles and simpler control circuits.

Transmission Device

The role of the electric vehicle transmission device is to transmit the driving torque of the electric motor to the drive shaft of the vehicle. When electric wheel drive is used, most of the components of the transmission device can often be ignored. Because the electric motor can be started with a load, the clutch of a conventional internal combustion engine vehicle is not needed in an electric vehicle. Because the direction of rotation of the drive motor can be changed by circuit control, electric vehicles do not need the reverse gear in the transmission of an internal combustion engine vehicle. When the stepless speed control of the electric motor is used, the transmission of a conventional car can be ignored in an electric car. When using electric wheel drive, electric vehicles can also omit the differential in the transmission system of conventional internal combustion engines.

Running Gear

The function of the driving unit is to turn the driving torque of the electric motor into the force on the ground through the wheels and drive the wheels to travel. It is composed of the same components as other cars, including wheels, tires and suspension.

Steering Unit

The steering device is set up to realize the turning of the car and consists of a steering machine, steering wheel, steering mechanism, and steering wheel. The control forces acting on the steering wheel deflect the steering wheel by a certain angle through the steering mechanism and the steering mechanism to realize the steering of the car. Most electric vehicles are front-wheel steering, while electric forklifts used in an industry often adopt rear-wheel steering. There are mechanical steering, hydraulic steering, and hydraulic power steering for electric vehicles.

Braking Device

The braking device of electric vehicles, like other vehicles, is set up for slowing down or stopping the vehicle, and usually consists of a brake and its operating device. In electric vehicles, there is usually an electromagnetic brake device, which can use the control circuit of the driving motor to realize the power generation operation of the motor, so that the energy during deceleration and braking can be converted into the current for charging the battery and thus be recycled. Domestic electric vehicles in high-powered passenger vehicles, to provide air braking equipment have Nelly NAILI sliding vane air compressor, mainly compressed air braking method.

Working Device

The working device is specially set up for the industrial electric vehicle to complete the operation requirements, such as the lifting device of the electric forklift, door frame, fork, etc. The lifting of forks and the tilting of the door frame are usually done by the hydraulic system driven by an electric motor.

What Is A Rechargeable Car: Charging Equipment

The driving electric energy of an electric motor comes from an onboard rechargeable battery or other energy storage device. Most the vehicles are driven directly by electric motors, some of them have electric motors in the engine compartment, and some of them directly use the wheels as the rotors of four electric motors, and the difficulty lies in the electric power storage technology.
Electric motor drive electricity, itself does not emit harmful gases that pollute the atmosphere, even if converted to power plant emissions by the electricity consumed, other than sulfur and particulates, other pollutants are significantly reduced.
Electric vehicles can also make full use of the surplus electricity charging in the evening when the electricity consumption is low, so that the power generation equipment can be fully utilized day and night, greatly improving its economic efficiency. It is these advantages that have made the research and application of electric vehicles a “hot spot” in the automotive industry.
Similar to the cell phone charging ICM step wave six-segment charging, with good desulfuration effect, can first activate the battery, and then maintenance type fast charging, with timing, full alarm, computer fast charging, password control, self-identifying voltage, multiple protection, four-way output, and other functions, supporting universal output interface, can be fast charging of all-electric vehicles. Shopping malls, supermarkets, hospitals, parking lots, community entrances, roadside kiosks, and other public places.
In car charging network construction mode, in the charging facilities to promote the process, the urgent need to break through the difficult problem is the charging service network distribution. The electric power sector relies on the existing parking facilities to build micro-grid, distributed and integrated charging stations that can be charged and exchanged according to local conditions, which can avoid the two shortcomings of the charging mode: one is the long charging time and the other is the limited parking environment.

STONE Touch Screen For Car Charging

The STONE touch screen is constantly upgraded to provide developers with a better experience, creating solutions that make development easier and less time-consuming.
STONE technology offers a wide range of HMI display solutions for industries such as battery-charged cars, charging cars, industrial control, instrumentation, sensing solutions, and monitoring for IoT applications.
