Launch of 5G chipsets by Qualcomm for AR/VR Headsets

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) is all set to transform the way users used to access technology. The headsets can take you to places and show things that don't even exist in the real world. Qualcomm's all-new AR/VR tech brings 5G support and caters to the needs of standalone VR, AR headsets.

Qualcomm claims that the XR2 chip is in line with the company's new mobile chips, including the most awaited Snapdragon 865, 765, and 765G. These chipsets support 5G mobile network connectivity. Qualcomm believes that the future of mobile devices is an aggregate of different display technologies. The VR headsets can be used for various uses cases, right from web browsing, to recipe tutorials and even GPS navigation.

In an official statement, Qualcomm said, "Multiple OEMs are committed to commercializing devices with the Snapdragon XR2 Platform, and other customers are in various stages of prototyping and evaluation."

The XR2 5G platform is designed to support 3K x 3K displays at 90Hz. It will offer accelerated AI processing, and work with up to seven simultaneous camera feeds. The XR2 is a successor to the Snapdragon XR1 which was made especially for the low-end AR and VR headsets.

The latest iteration of the chipset targets high-end standalone headsets including Oculus Quest 2, Magic Leap 2, and similar next-generation devices. The new platform offers notable improvements. Qualcomm claims that the CPU and GPU performance by 2x, pixel throughput for video playback by 4x, and up to 6x resolution per-eye compared to Snapdragon 835.

The simultaneous camera will support advanced tracking, both for the environment and the user. Oculus Quest features four cameras that can track the position of headset and controllers. XR2 offers low-latency pass-through, which improves the pass-through video experience on high-end headsets.

Introduction to Java Security

Introduction to Java Security The Java security architecture includes a large set of application programming interfaces (APIs), tools, and implementations of commonly-used security algorithms, mechanisms, and protocols. The Java security APIs span a wide range of areas. Cryptographic and public key infrastructure (PKI) interfaces provide the underlying basis for developing secure applications. Interfaces for performing authentication and access control enable applications to guard against unauthorized access to protected resources. The JDK includes a number of providers that implement a core set of security services. It also allows for additional custom providers to be installed. This enables developers to extend the platform with new security mechanisms. The JDK is divided into modules. Modules that contain security APIs include the following:

Module Description java.base Defines the foundational APIs of Java SE;  contained packages include java.securityjavax.cryptojavax.net.ssl,  and…

SQL Injection

Overview A SQL injection attack consists of insertion or "injection" of a SQL query via the input data from the client to the application. A successful SQL injection exploit can read sensitive data from the database, modify database data (Insert/Update/Delete), execute administration operations on the database (such as shutdown the DBMS), recover the content of a given file present on the DBMS file system and in some cases issue commands to the operating system. SQL injection attacks are a type of injection attack, in which SQL commands are injected into data-plane input in order to effect the execution of predefined SQL commands. Threat ModelingSQL injection attacks allow attackers to spoof identity, tamper with existing data, cause repudiation issues such as voiding transactions or changing balances, allow the complete disclosure of all data on the system, destroy the data or make it otherwise unavailable, and become administrators of the database server.SQL Injection is ve…

Insertion Node in the Linkelist.

In this post, methods to insert a new node in linked list are discussed. A node can be added in three ways
1) At the front of the linked list
2) After a given node.
3) At the end of the linked list
public class Linkedlist { Node head; class Node{ int data; Node next; Node(int d){ data =d; next=null; } } // INSERT THE NODE AT THE BEGIN OF LINKEDLIST. public void insertAtfront(int new_data){ // Node temp = head; Node new_node = new Node(new_data); new_node.next = head; head = new_node; }  // INSERT THE NODE AT THE GIVEN POSITION IN LINKEDLIST.
public void insertAtGiven(Node prev_node,int new_data) { if(prev_node == null){ System.out.print("previous node can't be null"); return; } Node new_node = new Node(new_data); new_node.next = prev_node.next; prev_node.next = new_node; } // INSERT THE NODE  AT THE END OF THE LINKEDLIST.   public void insertAtEnd(int new_data){ Node new_node = new Node(new_data); new_node.nex…
