Microchannels cool high performance processors
Microchannels cool high performance processors

As part of the CarriCool project, Fraunhofer researchers have worked with IBM to develop what is said to be an effective method for cooling processors. According to the team, by integrating microchannels into the silicon interposer, a significant increase in performance can be achieved. Meanwhile, the team has also integrated passive components for voltage regulators, photonic ICs and optical waveguides into the interposer. The team, from Fraunhofer’s Institute for Reliability and Mi...

Analog Devices, imec to take IoT devices to ‘next generation’
Analog Devices, imec to take IoT devices to ‘next generation’

Belgian research centre imec is to work with Analog Devices to develop the next generation of IoT devices. The move, building on two existing initiatives, is intended to produce devices that are not only low-power, but which also feature largely improved or completely new sensing capabilities. One joint research initiative already underway focuses on localisation technology. A second initiative includes the creation and commercialisation of a highly-integrated liquid sensor that can be use...

Teledyne e2v sensors to equip the LSST

Teledyne e2v has been awarded a multimillion dollar contract by SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) to supply customised Charge Coupled Device (CCD) image sensors for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope. The 8.4 metre telescope is being constructed in Chile to carry out a ten-year survey of the sky to address a range of fundamental astronomy questions about dark matter, dark energy, near Earth asteroids, transient optical objects (such as supernovae), and the formation of our Milky...

Scientist get closer to solving the 'speed limit' for electronic devices

Scientists at Heriot-Watt University have reported they are one step closer to developing a technology that could result in electrons being replaced with photons, solving the looming ‘speed limit’ for electronic gadgets. According to Dr Marcello Ferrera, an assistant professor in Photonics and Optics at Heriot-Watt, the long-term success of electronics has been associated with how much smaller devices have become, and how robust they are, even when made from a very limited numb...
