Angad Cheema Fires Blistering 63 for Round One Lead
Rashid Khan and Chikkarangappa one shot behind

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Wednesday, November 27, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) -- Rookie Angad Cheema of Panchkula equalled the course record with a blistering seven-under-63 to grab the lead in the opening round of the CG Open 2013 being played at the Bombay Presidency Golf Club in Mumbai. Chikkarangappa S of Bangalore, another rookie, was placed tied second at six-under-64 along with Delhi's Rashid Khan.

Angad Cheema started the tournament with birdies on the first two holes. Angad landed his tee shot within four feet of the pin on the second hole, a par-3. The lanky golfer then hit a couple of inaccurate tee shots that resulted in bogeys on the third and fifth. Between the two bogeys he had a birdie on the fourth.

The 23-year-old Cheema used his sand-wedge to great effect on the seventh, 11th and 12th where he landed his approach shots within seven feet to pick up three more birdies. It seemed to be the rookie's day as he canned a 25-footer to gain another stroke on the 14th. Angad made birdie-bogey on the 16th and 17th before signing off with a spectacular eagle on the 18th. Cheema found the par-5 18th green in two shots before sinking two-and-a-half foot eagle putt.

Cheema thus equalled the course record of seven-under-63 which was earlier set by Md Zamal Hossain Mollah, Ashok Kumar, Rafick Ali Mollah, Karanjit Singh Sandhu and Gurbaaz Mann.

"I couldn't have asked for a better start to the week. I hit it really well and was within four feet of the pin on four occasions. I capitalized on the par-5 holes as I made an eagle and three birdies on the four par-5s. The eagle on the final hole has given me a lot of confidence going into the second round," said Cheema.

He added, "My runner-up finish at the BILT Open last month has helped me raise my game. The fact that I'm placed fourth on the Rolex Rankings and lead the Emerging Player of the Year race is added incentive to perform better in my first season as a professional. The key at this course will be to grab maximum opportunities on the greens."

Chikkarangappa S came up with a bogey-free 64 that placed him in joint second along with Rolex Rankings leader Rashid Khan whose round of 64 featured seven birdies and a bogey.
Chikkarangappa, currently ranked fifth on the Rolex Rankings, said, "My hitting was top-class and I made 15 greens in regulation. I sank three birdie putts from a distance of 10 to 12 feet and hit the green in two shots on the 16th and 18th, both par-5s, to register birdies.

"I've had a good season so far and I'm carrying forward the form from the last PGTI event where I finished tied third," added Chikka.

Divyanshu Bajaj of Kolkata made a hole-in-one on the second hole during his round of five-under-65 that placed him tied fourth along with K Prabagaran of Sri Lanka.

Divyanshu's six-iron tee shot from 178 yards on the second hole, pitched a yard short of the hole before finding the cup on the second bounce.

Chandigarh golfers Abhijit Singh Chadha, Harmeet Kahlon and Randhir Singh Ghotra are in tied sixth place at four-under-66 along with Delhi's Vinod Kumar, Abhishek Jha of Bangalore and Bangladeshi Md Shakhawat Hossain Sohel.

Defending champion Harendra Gupta fired a one-over-71 to grab a share of 56th place.

Delhi has Made Significant Progress in Transport Infrastructure


New Delhi, Delhi, India, Wednesday, November 27, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) -- In a country with a huge population, transportation is a key factor impacting quality of life. Delhi has made tremendous progress in its transport infrastructure in the last 15 years: a world-class metro system, newer and wider roads, modern bus system and a network of flyovers and foot over-bridges.

-- Streetlights increased from 2 lakh in 2002 to over 5 lakh today

Flyovers and bridges in Delhi

-- Signature Bridge construction is an Icon for Delhi

-- Delhi is the only state in India that does not have a single PPP road

-- One bridge added to ease traffic across Yamuna at Geeta Colony

Major Achievements

-- International Design Award for FOBs

-- Delhi Metro line is spread over 194 Kms has more than 23 lakh daily commuters.

-- The first route of the Mono Rail Project is carved from Shastri Park to Trilokpuri (12-14 Kms)

Increasing Awareness and Stricter Law Enforcement Stimulates Fire and Safety Market in India, Finds Frost & Sullivan
'Consolidation a Key Trend in this Fragmented Market'

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Wednesday, November 27, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) -- The growing economy as well as an expanding construction sector provides a strong platform for investments in the Indian fire and safety market. The increasing number of fire accidents across the country is also highlighting the need for better safety standards and equipments across end-user sectors, especially in government offices, schools, colleges, and public places such as railway stations and airports. As reported recently, there were about 22,000 fire related incidents across India. In Mumbai, about 300 odd high rise buildings have been issued notices for not adhering to fire safety norms. Gross violation of fire safety norms enshrined in the National Building Code by builders is a significant reason for the increasing number of fire accidents, as such non-compliance does not entail severe or major penalty.

As a result, market revenues for fire and gas detection and suppression systems are expected to rise from the INR 13.54 billion in 2012 to INR 25.32 billion in 2016, according to the new study from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.buildingtechnologies.frost.com) titled Analysis of Fire and Safety Market in India. Fire and life safety equipments are becoming mandatory in commercial and industrial buildings, and high-rise apartments too are paying close attention to the safety of property and life.

"The fire and life safety market is a code-driven one, and although building and safety codes have not been enforced strictly in the past, they will become stringent as awareness rises across India," said Frost & Sullivan's Environment & Building Technologies Research Analyst. "Demand will continue to go up as local governments and insurance firms take steps to enforce safety regulations and educate end users on the need for safety compliance."

Unfortunately, many Indian end-users still view fire and safety equipment as a non-productive investment. Very often, basic standards are not met, and even in places where equipment is installed, only a few number of occupants are trained to use fire and safety devices. Moreover, intense competition, price-sensitive end users, and the lack of product differentiation act as barriers to the development of this highly fragmented market. Consolidation is inevitable as companies look to adopt the inorganic model for growth to stay competitive. Presently, big companies are securing the market share through acquisitions and expansions, and by gaining access to tier III cities.

"Competitive pricing, superior product performance, after-sales support, efficient technology, reliability, and strong contractor and customer relationships will play a vital role in helping companies establish a foothold in the Indian market," revealed the analyst. "Although business is coming in from new projects in the construction sector, focus on retrofit segment will open up immense opportunities over the next few years. Critical infrastructure including mass transportation like Railways, Metro Rail, Intelligent Transportation systems and Airport Security will offer the maximum opportunities for the fire and life safety systems."

From a technology perspective, mass notification services, integration of voice evacuation systems, and use of addressable systems to find the exact location of the fire etc. are expected to gain grounds in India. Integration of fire detection systems, surveillance systems with building management systems will continue along with increased use of IP and wireless technologies replacing traditional telephone lines which is the primary alarm communication method now. Indian market is also witnessing the usage of multi-sensor detectors combining up to four detectors: regular photo sensor, a light sensor, a heat sensor, and a carbon monoxide sensor.

Miami Airport Shortens Queues for Thanksgiving with SITA Kiosks


Miami, United States, Tuesday, November 26, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) -- Passengers at Miami International Airport will enjoy shorter queues in passport control this Thanksgiving thanks to new self-service passport control kiosks from air transport IT leader, SITA. The new kiosks can process passengers in less than two minutes, compared to longer waits for a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent during peak travel periods.

Maurice Jenkins, Director of Information Systems and Telecommunications, Miami International Airport, said: "Our aim is to provide excellent service to our passengers. During the Thanksgiving holiday period, we are expecting more than 900,000 passengers to pass through MIA. SITA's kiosks are reducing wait times and making arrival in Miami faster and easier for international passengers."

All U.S. passport holders and returning Canadian passport holders are eligible to use the new kiosks, which partially automate the inspection process for people entering the United States. The kiosks scan the passenger's passport, collect flight information and declaration data, take a photo and give the passenger a receipt. Passengers then present their receipt to an agent on the way out.

Paul Houghton, SITA President, Americas, said, "Miami International Airport is one of the first airports in the U.S. to offer self-service kiosks for international passengers. As the global leader in integrated border solutions, SITA is providing kiosks that will streamline the passenger arrival process, while helping border control agents maintain high security levels. Other airports using similar technology have reduced wait times by up to 36 percent."

SITA is providing the new kiosks in collaboration with Vision-Box, a specialist in automated border control systems and electronic identity solutions. The kiosks incorporate biometric technology, which the airport may deploy at a later stage to further enhance efficiency and security.

The airport has installed 36 kiosks, which are located in the North Terminal, and plans to deploy additional kiosks in 2014.

Over the past 25 years, SITA has worked closely with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Canadian Border Services Agency to provide the latest border management solutions. SITA offers a broad portfolio of border management solutions, including collecting, storing and risk-assessing passenger data, capturing and processing biometric data and verifying passenger identity.

BWI: New member of the EiceDRIVERTM Family: 1EDI Compact Driver with Coreless Transformer Technology for Applications up to 1200 V

New member of the EiceDRIVERTM Family: 1EDI Compact Driver with Coreless Transformer Technology for Applications up to 1200 V


Neubiberg, Germany, Tuesday, November 26, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) -- At this year's SPS IPC Drives trade fair for electrical automation, Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) will present its new 1EDI EiceDRIVERTM Compact Single Channel Gate Driver for applications with isolation voltages of up to 1200 volts. The galvanically isolated driver components are based on the Coreless Transformer Technology developed by Infineon, which enables output currents of up to 6 amperes on separate output pins. The basic system includes UVLO (under voltage lockout) for IGBTs and MOFETs as well as an active shutdown in the event that the driver is not connected to the power supply. The 1EDI drivers are supplied in a compact DSO-8 housing and can be used at ambient temperatures of up to 125°C in applications such as industrial drives, inverters, welding equipment, induction cooking appliances and power supplies for servers or telecommunications.

"With the 1EDI driver IC, we are further expanding our extensive range of driver ICs - which are differentiated according to applications as well as functionality - into the compact area. As with the 2EDL Compact, the new driver component is also aiming at the mass market both in the consumer as well as the industrial area," says Oliver Hellmund from Infineon, who is responsible for marketing the EiceDRIVERTM. "The 1EDI Compact stands for exceptionally robust and simultaneously very secure control of high-voltage power semiconductors. Our compact driver range now covers all applications for power semiconductors with functional isolation." The 1EDI driver ICs are offered in eight variants that can be operated at up to voltages of 1200 volts and are designed for use in applications with either IGBTs or MOSFETs.

The new EiceDRIVERTM components are the first driver ICs to achieve a value of 100kV/┬Ás for the CMTI (common mode transient immunity). Both the MOSFET as well as one IGBT driver supply six amperes of output current. The MOSFET driver is optimized for use with power semiconductors that are based on CoolMOST technology. Due to lower induction loss, the EiceDRIVERT thus enables an additional gain in efficiency of 0.5 percent with the latest generation CoolMOS C7. Further IGBT only variants with 4, 2 and 0.5 amperes are in preparation. These five variants have a separate output for charging and discharging the gate. An additional three variants are structured to limit the gate voltage (active Miller clamp) and provide 3, 2 and 1 amperes of output current.

In addition to the compact class, the EiceDRIVER TM family also includes the EiceDRIVERTM Enhanced class which offers increased functionality both for the industrial as well as partially the consumer sectors.

Availability and additional information

Samples of the 1EDI EiceDRIVERTM for MOSFETs and IGBTs with 6 amperes of output current are available now; the corresponding Customer Evaluation Board can be ordered as of January 2014. Production start for both these variants will presumably begin in March 2014. The other drivers are intended to be available as samples in the first quarter of 2014; production is planned to begin in the second quarter of 2014. More detailed information about the entire driver IC family is available under www.infineon.com/eicedriver. Infineon is presenting the new 1EDL EiceDRIVER TM from November 26 to 28, 2013 at the SPS IPC Drives trade fair in Nuremberg in Hall 1, Stand 328. Further information on fair highlights is available in the Internet.
